thnx guys ..

did some wheel arch work a few minutes ago .. used these boxy shaped edges cut out of a ford pick up ... fit perfect and syle wise fit better , the other ones made it look like a range rover .. these are cool

you can also see the depth in the headlights and the depth in the foglights i made in the bumper , took a while to get the shape and edge right .. needs more cleaning later to really make it smooth

10153774_449014645231451_407489717167581

works well , the arches really create depth in the side

10173711_449014651898117_438133277997711

also got a edge o the indide of the well , wehn i have done the rear i need to really clean it up

Like it. The sides looked too flat without them.

Sometimes these "simple" kits yield some great results ---- just enough latitude to add some detail but not too much in the way of fussy building---

 

Thanks for some great photos on this one --- hope to see more soon ---

its kingsday today here in holland , a lot of flea markets .. so i found this cutting matte for 50 cents


1512387_449837591815823_1794124749387253

but i went to look for toycars tyres and maybe wheels , nothing ... all junk and ... untill i found this one , super simple but those rims look cool

also 50 cents so ...

10153173_449838558482393_835176813265784

going to ass realism to the brake discs and the rims for the front will be more narrow with less wide lip

yes whell thats what i thought dinky ...

but reality is that they are too wide / bulky ... lets say it starts to look like a jada toy car ...

i can def. use the rims , i have that opel blitz i build .. when i will rebuild that into a hauler i will use the wheels on that perfect in size and width ..

for now i found a set of white walls in a box i forgot about , together with chrome steelies i think it looks wicked ..

will become more vintage looking , the kit bronco also includes a steel window visor .. that will fot with the wheels and style i think

was een leuke gok maar die velgen zijn te lomp , te breed etc ... ik kan ze wel gebruiken voor een ander projectje als ik mijn opel blitz ga veranderen in een custom oprijwagen ..

voor nu deze keus gemaakt white wall banden met chromen steelies , ga iets meer vintage kwa stijl , in de kit zit ook een stalen zonneklep ...

look this is too much .. to wide and to jada like

10169168_449864185146497_436915986989917

much better and realistic

Love the wheels and the edging on the fenders is a nice touch. I know you will do some custom work to them....

thnx carl

started on the taillights today , just 2 round hollow plastic bushes against eitch other in the lower section , simple and clean



10246457_450870398379209_651920191901719

then i cleaned the lower seem of the talgate and let the side panellines run through to the bottom so its a whole tailgate with the lights in it

10247399_450870401712542_190786943561022


later i can deside if i will make a strip under the tailgate and maybe some small sideskirts under the side and a front lip under the bumper , maybe even clean the tailgate section in the middle that kind of looks bulky
