Thanks, gents. 'Tis what I do, I guess. Just made the dashboard, with its odd rectangular tacho. Exhausts tonight. Suspension tomorrow, then back to the Capri. Although I might just have a bash at that Amilcar for myself.
Glad to oblige, Peter. To be fair it was suggested (with a hammer and a shotgun<G>) by Chris, who sent pics and plans. We agreed on a particular plan, but then I felt that it didn't have sufficient slope to the top line, so I built that in, last minute. I'm happy with it now. Then Mel jumped on it, so it will be the next one in the Pre-Wing range and pretty quick, judging by his urgent response.

News from Martin regarding wheels for Mel's Pre-Wing BRM V-16.
Martin changed etchers so now he has a fret which fits the wheels and are very near to production.
36, 48 and 60 spoke skinny 19" wheels will be produced, that will in due course be sold under the RS Slotracing brand. Martin designed them for him and facilitated getting them made, until the mini-stroke slowed him down a bit!
If you build Mel's V16 BRM, you'll need RS 60 spoke wheels on the front and Pendle's much bulkier ones on the back for a really sweet combo, whereas Ken's W25 can use RS both ends.
Colin at RS also has Martin's Amilcar C6 master and is busy casting them and also is mouding tyres to suit the wheels. 48 spoke 19s will good o the Amilcar too!
