Topics I've Started

Revell Trabant 601s

19 November 2014 - 06:31 AM

I've had a few of these in the stash since they were released back in late 2009, but as I like to paint my models in authentic colours I've only just managed to get my hands on some Trabant paint, although I found out after I ordered the paint that a 100% colour match to Trabant Champagne beige is RAL 1024 Ochre Yellow.


So back to the bench after being down with a virus for a few weeks, as with all of my builds I started work and prepped the body, the roof panel is a separate part and fits onto the body without any gaps, the bootlid and bonnet are also separate parts and once the model is finished can be opened,they are only in place in the photo's for test fitting purposes, again they fit very well and probably better than the real Trabant.


The paint was decanted into glass bottles so it can be airbrushed on.

Revell VW Beetle

Built this pretty much out the box, apart from stripping the chrome off the wheel and painting them silver with the hubcaps picked out with bmf, paintwork is VW Brilliant orange, I built it as a 70's 1200A model,

Tamiya Morris Mini Cooper S

09 June 2014 - 10:18 AM

This one was commissioned 9 weeks ago, I got it finished 3 weeks under the time I had originally quoted, as the customer asked if it was possible to get it finished for June 15th, which over here is fathers day, it was painted in the original BMC colours of Fiesta yellow with an Old English White roof, the interior was done in the original colours of powder blue and light grey, the wheels were drilled out, just like the original Cooper wheels, and a couple of front spot lights were added to the grille, which the real car I was modelling had.
