New Website of Completed Kits

Post by Hugeprong »

Hi there

Just in case anyone is interested, I have been spending some of this lockdown period constructing a modest website - Hugo's Huge Model Show - to display my completed kits. If anyone would like to look, the website is;

http://www.hhms.info

I hesitate to do this when I compare my own rubbish with the brilliance of others on this site - but nevertheless, I hope that some of my projects look OK.

Any comments would be appreciated and particularly if any of the links do not work or there is some failure on the site that I havent spotted!

Cheers

HUGO

Hugo, that is a great way to display your models, both on the shelf and online! Thanks for the hard work!

I only got through the 1/12 models, sports cars and F1. Awesome work.

My main question is - HOW do you build so many models in your lifetime? Unbelievable work.

Thank you.

My god Hugo...that is a lot of models. I really like the way everything is arranged and displayed. Even your unbuilt kits are neatly stacked (no doubt the collection will be expanding). This is something I have always thought about doing with all my stuff one day (will never happen :roll: ). Showed my wife your website and reassured her she has nothing to worry about :D
An excellent way to show ones life work..Thankyou :)
Cheers Tim

Thanks Jeff, and to the 11 others who kindly took time to leave encouraging messages at the site. Really kind of you all.

Just to say that in response to a number of requests, I have now added an index at the top of every section so you can see what cars are included. I have also removed the slideshow autoplay as I gathered it stopped people being able to look at a single photo for very long. (Apologies - I am learning!)

Now you can just use the stream of thumbnails under the main photos to scroll through and select photos of interest to you.

Any other thoughts or ideas - just let me know!

Thanks again

HUGO
