Well I couldn't wait for the beginning of December to start the new project thread, so here it is. No pics yet but I'm sure there will be plenty over the coming months.

Mary & I went to Alun's emporium on Sunday to see what he had in stock. I got it into my head that I wanted a Magenta one this time (sorry David, but if the Mimosa one is still available next year... :D ). We had a good look at a few of the cars on offer & plumped for "the Brooklands Green one" :scratchin: .....I know, all will be revealed. :D Alun took me out in the Aston whilst I was there........awesome!!!!!!! :twisted: and a great colour.

Excellent Mart, you need to do a Tahiti Blue one one day, seems to be a very rare colour now

It's like your favourite TV programme coming back for a new series. I've enjoyed the last few series so can't wait to see the next project take place.

Eh? i thought Mart said they'd gone to look at the Magenta but decided to do Brooklands instead? :scratchin: Get yer photon transducer out Alun.

I too look forward to a parallel transformation :D It's a shame the first twins didn't meet up for a photo shoot.

...True, I'm just hoping by the title and the all will be revealed, that it is indeed a Magenta.

Better start saving...

Yea, spotted that one Malc. But if I get a Brooklands I'll probably want to keep it for myself. :-k

Right lets get down to it......Is it Brooklands or Magenta??

If it's going to be Brooklands...I'll give you the specification that I want now ! Saves me having to doing anything to it when I get it!!
