Topics I've Started

I need Engine I.D. help from the pros, please.

09 September 2010 - 10:15 PM

Hey guys,
can you help with identifying the engine in this pic? Unfortunately it is the only pic I have.
It is a bus, made in Italy by Fiat in the 60's. It has two valve covers which is odd to me.
Is there anything, in kit form, that would be a good starting point, or is this going to be a fully scratch-built thing?
And the million dollar question.....does any body have any reference photos?......(I know, it's like asking for a current video of dinosaurs)

Thanks for you help.

Help with a donor kit choice

03 September 2010 - 12:57 PM

I got a resin kit from Finland and it's a Volvo P1800 wagon. I am uncertain as to a donor kit that would work. Do any of you have an suggestions?
I know you will probably ask me the wheel base and I'm in Ireland with my job and won't be back until the 14th, so I don't have the model with me. I do know that it is 1/24, but that probably won't help you that much.
Thanks for any input.

Need Decal Help

11 August 2010 - 07:23 AM

I was on this forum a while back and saw someone that was doing decal work as a business. They would print out what you needed in any amount that you needed. There was a link in the post and some examples.

Can anyone help me locate this gentleman? I can't seem to find it in the forum and can't remember what area of the board I saw the info in. (I know......preposition!!!!

Thanks for you help!

Here are the final shots of the build. I added quite a few detail pieces to make it a little nicer "curbside". Hope you like it.

Here you can see the camera lens (below the trunk) that is not too far away, and then the sun, which I think is a little farther away.

Man, do I hate micro lenses!!!!! Look at the glue near the window support on the far side. Also, don't cut your windows with a serrated pair of scissors!!

Here are some shots I took the other day for the runaway thread.
Hope you enjoy them. The 250 LM is the Academy kit and the 275P is the Revell slot car body.

The windshield had a molded in windshield wiper that was terrible. I sanded it out, polished the glass (plastic) and dipped it in Future. Then made one from Photo Etch.
