  3. Ducati 1199 Tricolore

    Hi all, Here is my first ever attempt at a motor bike kit. The kit in question is tamiya's Ducati 1199 Tricolore in 1:12 scale. This is my favourite motorbike, I really like the design of it and how everything is packaged so neatly in the body. The kit was very easy to work with, very little modifications had to be made. In addition to the kit, i got the detail up set from tamiya which adds metal suspension forks, rear suspension oil resivoir and disc brake rivets. for the little bit extra cost, I highly recommend getting this, as the added detail is unreal. Anyway, enjoy the photos below. Thanks
  4. What do you drive?

    Great story, looks like you had a lot of fun over the years.
  5. Tires...Tires...and more Tires!

    A decent set of pickup truck tires that are beefy and wide without being "mudders", brand irrelevant, but branded non-the less. Otherwise, decent hot rod options, just have a name brand on them. Just irks me that there are all many kit tires, unbranded.
  6. These look like the old MPC tires. While they certainly wouldn't work with the chrome reversed wheels I would think you could make them work with the stock steelies. Other than maybe clearance issues?
  7. The kit I have is: by Testors/Fujimi #392. On the cover is a very dark picture of the Porsche, if that helps. It has 161 parts so I really need the instructions! Thanks

    I agree with that. And even though I could get a new replacement body, I should pay the shipping for that one. So instead of trying to get one, I guess my only real choice is to try and fix the body that I have now. I also have the Melrose Missile kit and it has a warped body as well, but it's luckily not as bad as this one, but then again my regular Belvedere kit has a perfect body in it.

    And we're mostly talking here about metal items.

  13. potvin supercharger

    Does not the AMT double dragster with the Fiat body and period rail have a Potvin blower option? Does not the AMT parts pack have a 283 with Potvin Option?
  14. 69 Corvette 427

    That really jumps out! Nice.
  15. 70 AMX

    Here is a 70 AMX that I built from a Missing Link Resin kit. This is based of the Johan kit and went together really well. It is getting harder to dig up the base kit for this now and Johan kits are getting costly. I really didn't have much of a challenge building this one but the clear coat didn't stick well to the Testors Big Bad Blue paint. The first time I tried masking the black shadow mask paint the clear lifted off. I use two part automotive clear and had to strip the whole thing. Not as easy to do with resin and risky. Second time went well and the build continued. I really enjoyed this one. Glad I bought two of them from Missing Link when I had the chance! Now I have to build one of the 68 I have to finish the set!

    I saw that Renault on the cover.......to bad it's 1/35 scale....may get one anyway.
  17. Big Foot

    Plenty of Goodwill stores in the Twin Cities. They are less than $10 used, but you can still buy them new. I bet if there's a Spencer's Gifts in the MOA, they'd sell 'em.
  18. 69 Camaro Pace Car convertible

    I haven't been posting much in the last few years and I'm sorry for that. I really enjoy everyone's builds and look here often. So here is one of my lastest ones that I finished last year. This is the Revell kit that I started back in 2007. I had some issues with the grill that is hollowed out and has Model Car Garage photo etch parts in it. I got frustrated many times with this one and it sat in my unfinished pile. I had restarted it a few times and back it went into waiting. Paint is Dover white from Scale Finishes. The original decals were two old and crumbled. I had two sets of Revell ones. Then I bought some from Firebird Designs. I messed up the first set of them also then bought two more for a total of five sets of decals. I finally got them right and have one set left. Last I had painted the interior and it was to dark and I had stripped those parts and found another orange that matched the stripes. I used Testors Mopar Go Mango with dull coat. Last was buying another 69 Revell conv kit for the houndstooth decals. I'm really happy with how this one came out but man did it fight me.

    Hey, I really like those nut covers on the steer wheels....I have some on my steer also on my real work truck...Way cool..What did you use to make them?
  20. Faking Denim?

    Thanks guys, I'm going to try the paint trick and keep the download and print to decal paper in mind. Tricky part will be that I want to have it look like green denim instead of blue, since I want to paint the car that Model Master Lime Green Metallic Lacquer.
  21. AMT Fire Truck

    I do indeed want the pumper. Foreverfords, I've sent you a PM.
  22. Dakar 2018 build; Renault 5

    Wat een werk zeg... Cool and very outside of the usual box... lookin forward to the finished piece.
  23. What did you get today?

    We have a yard of about 2600 sqft, but Dad decided to go and get a riding mower.....and a snow plow attachment since we have as much, if not more pavement than we do lawn.
  24. Doc Love's Street Beast Update 1/23

    This just went on my "future purchase" list....

    I highly doubt it. I believe they are making plenty of money off of the 1/35 military stuff, that there is no reason to delve into 1/25 heavy trucks. Right now they're riding the "WWI 100th Anniversary Wave", so it's kind of cool to see some decent WWI stuff.
