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)

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!

2011 VW Passat COT

03 May 2014 - 10:57 AM

What if...VW got into NASCAR in about 2010...
Kit: No name 2010 Impala COT snap kit. Kit decals with variety of VW decals and a Herbie decal from other sheets.
Driver: Jim Douglas III
Car: 2011 VW Passat COT
Number: 53 ("Herbie")
 
Fictional back story: VW wanted to get into NASCAR after seeing Toyota's success, so the PASSAT was announced in 2009 by VW for the 2010 season, starting at Daytona in February. One team was started as a two car team. Here's the entry for 2011.
The driver (Jim Douglas III) turns out to be the grandson of legendary driver Jim Douglas, who campaigned a 63 VW Beetle #53 (Herbie the Love Bug Disney movies) to much success on a variety of race courses around the world in the late 60s through mid 70s. He's had some success, but was looking for a new start. 
Anyhow, Here's the car:

VW Canada has stepped up to help as well as a model car company, Auto World with sponsorship for several races. We'll see how things go! Wish us luck!
 
This was a fun build that took me more time to decal than put together!!

Saturn V, Apollo 11

Revell 1/144 scale, aftermarket decals. Finished the build today...and I didn't take WIP pictures!

I have the paper models of the LUT and crawler yet to build to properly display this...in the meantime I did finish the base that came with the kit and the 3 12mm tall people standing on it...will get pictures of that later...

I do plan on getting better pictures and show some of the detail a little closer...this is a tough subject to photograph compared with cars! :)
