In Topic: Airfix "Blower" Bentley, 1:12 scale

27 October 2014 - 08:59 AM

I picked one of these up a couple years ago, as a partial glue bomb.  I've been working on it, off and on, ever since.  The size makes "super detailing" easier, which is fortunate since the limitations of the molding technology of the time make it almost mandatory.

     I can see that you've done many of the same modifications that I did: separating the spring shackles, sanding off the molded wrapping and getting rid of the molded on stone screening on the fuel tank (although my approach was to scratch build a new tank)

I think the screen you used is a better match to the 1:1, but this is all I had on hand.  The wrapped fuel lines are old strings from my guitar.

     I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this kit.  I like where it's going so far.

Thanks.  The pictures make it pretty clear.

I'm fascinated by hearses, and this one fully vindicates my obsession.

You said this was a resin copy of the Johan, but not who cast it.  Do you know?  I'd like to get my hands on one since the originals are hard to come by at a decent price.

   By the way, the engine is looking very nice; "used but not abused".

This was worth waiting for.

I hope we don't have to wait another ten years for the next one, though. :D

Nice chop! Do you have a build thread on this?  I'd love to see how you did it.

Also, I really like the paint combo.
