The first couple of jobs are the Spoiler and Mirrors, I have an idea for the splitter.

Very smart - do you have access to an alps printer to do all the white lettering?

Thanks Paul, I managed to find the name decals from a DTM decal sheet.
I am looking at doing my own decals, have some designs made just need time to get the sizes right and print them now. I'll need access to an alps printer at some point though.

Have been doing a bit more work on this.

Just need to print the black number decals now:

I have been experimenting at printing my own decals, here is a prototype printed on ordinary paper (I know the bonnet should just read "33" and not have writing on it)

I am planning on borrowing my Dad's Laser printer to print the actual decal.

Started to take some better pictures of the Vanaguards I have.
Just finished fitting the front decal which improves the model vastly (thanks to Peter for this).

That would look so much better if the wheels were correctly spaced, they look heavily tucked to my eyes (although they are tired eyes at the moment!).
Is that something which is possible to mod?

I noticed the wheels too, also the tyres are road ones and just don't look right.

It is something I will try and fix at some point soon.

Here are some models I have converted slightly.

The Bellm BMW now has the correct Race Number, and the Rouse Sierra has been converted from a 1985 version to the 1985 version:

Not the greatest model and it's a shame it isn't 1/43, but not bad for £10 so will do for now:

Cheers Steve, I know the Sierra's are near identical bar the Kent Cams decals.

I bought it at Brands Hatch yesterday from the Pirtek stand, only £10. It will be available at the BTCC races and should appear on their website too. I did go back to try and get one for you later on but they had sold out :( .

Is the Alfa an HPI? It's a stunning model.

Thanks Tom and Jeff, really pleased with it, for £7 I thought it was a bargain.
