Bathurst winning Sierra RS500 (Johnson/Bowe)

26 February 2014 - 06:55 PM

I built this one years ago but have not seen any Aussie Sierra's of late.  RHD conversion & the correct resin wheels.  Decals are courtesy of Roo Decal, not sure if they are still available or the resin conversion pieces for that matter.

Have just finished this one off.  It's from Paul at Fisher Pattern & Model.  Have yet to work out the most effective way of putting the race # on the mesh/grille.  Only problem I had was not placing the oil cooler far enough over on the passenger side thus not allowing me to fit scratch made leather bonnet straps

A pair of Lotus XI's

10 January 2014 - 07:26 PM

A friend of mine managed to get 3 Merit's and a pair of Chinese friction toy Lotus XI's a little while back.  The Lotus were bought on the understanding that I would probably get 1 out of the 2 available.

I have been working on them for a while.  I used resin seats, and wheel/tyre combination that I made up using the Tamiya Lotus 7 tyre and a 60's Lotus wobbly slot car insert.  Headlight buckets are aluminium tube and I vacformed the headlight covers & screens after making a mould from DF for the full screen conversion

Revell FIA Cobra CSX2323

08 November 2013 - 08:20 PM

I have always wanted to build the Gurney Targa Florio Cobra.  I could have bought either the Model Factory Hiro (expensive) or Historic Racing Miniatures (long wait) kits but once again really wanted to use the 60's Revell slot car body.  The opportunity came up a couple of months ago when I actually won, for a change, a reasonable Revell slot car on E-bay for a FAIR  price.  Using a spare AMT 289 & Monogram 427 I set to work.  Chassis, suspension & interior is from the AMT 289 but widened & lengthened.  All the outer body bits are Monogram.  Motor is Monogram Mustang.  Dashboard, suitcase bumps and extractors are scratchbuilt, wheels I cast from my Gunze Sanyo Daytona coupe, Weber trumpesy are shoe eyelets a mate found for me
