My Sevens

Yesterday, 07:00 AM

I have been asked more times than I can count to share photos of all my Super Sevens together, especially since finishing my latest and seventh 1/12 scale Seven.
I have been cleaning my display cases over the last couple weeks so I thought the time was right, and the sun was out for the most part...
Unfortunately I can't show all of my 1/12 Sevens. I gave one to Mr. Tamiya (Sr.) a dozen years ago, and another is in a private collection. But I have these five in my collection.

Chevy SSR

Just quickie club build put together out-of-the-box. Im not much of a fan of the real truck, but the kit is a pleasure to build. The colors are all Tamiya straight from the spray cans. The flame decals are from a sheet I drew and produced several years back. This kit fits very well and the engine and transmission are detailed very nicely. I know the wheel color will not be liked by some, thats fine with me.

I started this a couple months ago as part of a group build. Ive worked on it for a couple hours (at a club meeting just cleaning parts) to a several minutes a day getting some paint on it.
So far it appears to be an exceptionally well fitting kit. The only issue Ive come across is a weak fit for the rear sway bar, (that is probably only noticeable because of how well everything else fit.)

These are little one piece resin caricatures, a little larger than a Hot Wheels car. They have some casting issues, like not being too symmetrical and this one had a lot of pin holes that affected some of the finer details.
After the base color is sprayed (White and blue in this case) the rest is hand painted. This one has some custom decals as well. DSC05186_zpszewnij8i.jpg

Original issue Revell kit from 1976. Been meaning to build it someday, and that day was about two weeks ago when I found the decals I had filed away needed to replace the water damaged originals.
Tamiya TS-16 Yellow for the body color. Built straight out-of-the-box. The only real change was to make decals for the tire side wall lettering.
