Started with this picture as the basis of a  replica of a car bought by a friend in around 1950...

I used the "hot rod" sedan kit and used the wheels/tires, steering wheel, shifter, bumpers and cropped gas cap from the Sedan Delivery kit...built as a curbside and attached to a lightly weathered base for a display case. Personalized the Ontario plates from a plate decal set (WaterMark, I think). Modified the tail light/plate assembly to better match the original.

Thanks, for looking...comments and questions welcomed.

1965 Mustang GT350R Weekend Warrior

17 July 2014 - 01:07 AM

2 Monogram kits used - Mustang 2+2 and GT350R. Built to depict a weekend warrior hobbyist racer's car.

Used Tamiya TS-14 Black from the can with 2 coats of Future before decals and one coat after decals.

Dash glove box door cut out, radio deleted, rear wheel tubs cut out to fit the larger rear tires, wheel centres and exhaust tips drilled out, front dust caps added. No wires as wanted to build as a shelf model. Enjoy. (More photos here)

VW Type 82E, Tamiya 1/48

01 June 2014 - 05:44 AM

1/48th scale Tamiya VW Type 82E Staff Car, Wehrmacht Heer, Berlin, 1945.

Nice little kit, had fun building it. All done with Tamiya bottle paint by various brushes. Weathering done using a home brew mixture.

Black out covers on headlights were drilled out as was the exhaust tip. Enjoy!
