Ford Capri - Zakspeed

18 October 2014 - 05:39 PM

Tamiya kit, re-issued about 7 years ago with Cartograph decals.  Being an older kit, not much detail underneath but offset by this beautiful one-piece body moulding.  For the first time ever, I didn't use primer and sprayed Tamiya Gloss Black straight onto the bare body.  A mist coat followed by two wet coats produced this finish, no sanding necessary other than a couple of dust bunnies after the first wet coat :blink: (another first LOL).  Many hours of decalling later I have reached this stage....for some reason it took about 5 minutes in the water before the decals would slide off the sheet :huh:

Here is my OOB build of the recent Revell kit, all paint is by Tamiya, with a few aftermarket decals and black BMF trim.

1961 Oldsmobile Wagon - built up rescue

20 September 2014 - 08:30 PM

I bought this as a built up off ebay.  Only had three wheels/tyres, so I tried out some Pegasus Astros and liked what I saw:

The rebuild involved Tamiya Gloss Aluminium and Light Gunmetal covered in clear red, with a maroon interior.  The door handles were shaved, I had to fabricate a new windscreen and borrow a steering wheel from the parts box.  Add some BMF and this is how she looks now:
