Blaupunkt Porsche 962 - 24 hour build

09 February 2015 - 03:57 PM

I thought I would share my 2015 24 hour build with all of you.  I actually nearly finished this model in the 24 hour time period.  I spent several more hours on it after the official 24 hour build was done.  It is a relatively easy kit.  It is a low part count / high decal count kit.  It is a Tamiya kit.

 

Let me know what you think!

Revell Jeep Rubicon

I just finished this one up last night.  This was just a straight forward build, nothing added other than BMF and flocking.

1934 Duesenberg "Metal Master" plastic kit

07 January 2015 - 11:25 AM

This one was finished up at the beginning of January.  It is the first completed model of my "building season".  I have never seen one of these built before.  I keep a log of hours worked on each model, it is just something I do. This one has 26 hours in it.  A relatively quick build for me.  I should note that there are no pics of this car with the hood on.  That is because it doesn't fit and I didn't want to spend the time to make it fit.  The hood is completed and it looks good, it just has to sit beside the car <_< .

Duesenberg - "Metal Master" plastic kit

01 January 2015 - 04:18 PM

This model will kick off my 2014-2015 building season. I say season because I tend to do all of my building during the November through April time frame. I always like to start my season with what I consider an easy project.  I did start this in November but it sat untouched for over a month.

I have no idea if this kit is all that common or if it is worth big money. I picked it up very cheaply. It is NOT a metal / diecast model. It is a plastic model that is completely plated. I have decided that it will be an out-of-box build with no detailing whatsoever. I am not going to add washes, stains, etc. I'm sure it would look better with those, but again, this is my first build of the season and I am going to keep it simple.

First up will be the kits contents. I will add WIP pics as I go. Comments and questions are always welcomed.

Engine is complete and sitting in the partially completed chassis.  Just a reminder, there will be no extra detailing on this build. What you see is straight out of the box. Because eveything is plated I cannot really fill and/or sand seams and ejector pin marks. But like I said, this is my first build of the season and it is supposed to be easy and fun.

Nacho Z's hobby room

23 October 2014 - 02:28 PM

I thought I would share some pictures of my hobby room / Earnhardt shrine. :D When I started back in this hobby I used a card table to build on.  I moved to a home-made bench in a bare basement.  The bench was next to the washer and dryer and all of the lint that comes with it.  There was no heat.  I would tack up an old bed spread from the floor joists to keep the lint out and the heat in.  I did this for a number of years until I decided to make a dedicated room for my hobby.  The room has evolved over the years and I have ran out of room for my goodies.  These pictures were taken almost a year ago when I did my yearly cleaning and organizing.  I am kind of a neat freak and keep my room pretty organized at all times.

 

Hope you all enjoy the pictures.  I absolutely love this room and regret not spending more time in it.

 

This is the view as you open the door.  Did you catch the ceiling tiles?
