Topics I've Started

39 Chev Coupe

10 August 2014 - 12:26 AM

Finally something off the bench!

Simple kit, low parts count making a fun build in between major projects.

Tamiya AS-27 Gunship Grey, several coats no clear used, was going for "the look".... ;)

A few engine details, lowered suspension, originally I had planned to used another set of deep dish steel rims with a lighter shade of grey, but I found some rims that were already painted, so I mounted them on a set of AMT Round 2 whitewalls which gave it a nostalgic look...something that granpa would go to church in :D !

I kinda like how it turned out ;)

Cheers

Ray

'31 Model A Panel Sedan

14 July 2014 - 02:08 AM

Another old kit bought from a garage sale last year guys B) !

 

1973 issue and built straight from the box with no aftermarket bits....

 

Even the old school 'glue together' tyres worked a treat and the decals were still good!

 

Testors silver base coat with Tamiya clear red....

 

Certainly was a challenge to build, the door hinges and chrome parts were a 'PINTA', still not sure if I correctly put them on trying to follow the vague instructions

:lol: !

 

Don't you just love that 4 banger engine :P !

 

Cheers

Rubystone Red for a Cuda

19 June 2014 - 11:39 PM

G' Day guys,

 

A couple of questions for my Ohana's State-side!

 

Do you think this colour by Testors is a good match for Moulin Rouge?

 

Just looking at some reference pics I found and I ask question is Moulin Rouge and Panther Pink the same?

 

I'm planning on painting the Revell Special Edition '70 Cuda with this.

 

I only use spray cans....one day I will buy an airbrush.

 

Thanks in advance!

'69 Firebird Convertible

22 April 2014 - 09:27 PM

Finally got this one done chaps, old MPC kit from '82 purchased from my LHS.

 

Had to do a bit of work to get this one up to speed, the box art suggested the '80s look, but I decided to be a little different..... :D

 

Kit has an optional 6 cylinder which is well detailed, but I settled for the V8.

 

Mt colour gloss Black polished with Tamiya finishing compounds, interior has a few Humbrol red accents.

 

Pegasus centrelines used, most of the kits chrome was not good...

 

Good fun in the end, simple kit B)

Cheers

Ray.
