Copper Bug - 24 Hour Build

02 June 2013 - 09:38 PM

This was my first quick build.  I participated in a 24 hour build session last week, with fellow club members. 

I finished this model in 19 hours.

 

This was a very different building experience for me. 

I used the 1966 VW Beetle Tamiya Kit.

50 Olds Gasser

Hello !!

 

Here are some progress shots of my 50 Olds Gasser. This is the first gasser I have ever built.

 

I trying to replicate an old barn find gasser. Maybe something like this:

I need to add the transmission linkages.

I used the front suspension from the 1933 Chrysler kit. It fit so well, I just had to use it. The white parts are scratch built items.

Here I’m experimenting with some different rust colors.

Diorama Lighting, Need Help

08 January 2013 - 10:32 AM

Hey Guys !  I need some help.

 

I'm considering adding some lighting to my 1/25th scale diorama.  I need overhead lights that would be found in a small garage.

 

When I try LED's they project a round spot on the floor.  No good.

When I try 1.5 volt  and 3 volt tiny filament type bulbs, they don't produce enough light. 

 

I want to run the lights on batteries.

 

Any suggestions?

 

 

Thanks.

Making a tarp ?

29 December 2012 - 11:06 AM

Need Help.

 

What material is good to use for 1/25th scale tarps? I know how to make a tarp, but I'm not sure what material to use. What has worked well for you?

 

And Is there some kind of material that can be used without soaking it in a glue mixture?

A material that will drape over the car in a natural way without the glue?

 

Thanks.
