In Topic: lets build a TiBird concept

x3, Hey Ken all I'm getting is "sorry image deleted" and the link to your photobucket says error, which is a pity as your build sounds fantastic and I would love to see it.

 

Kind regards Michael. 


In Topic: resin rear for big Jag

09 September 2013 - 10:35 PM

Hi Guy's, I’d like to show you how I made the rear section of my Jag. The car I’m building is actually the “lightweight”, so it has a (fixed) hardtop but the rear body is the same. Ok pic 1 is fairly obvious but you’ll notice that I kept the side and front window frames intact for later (invaluable) use, I started the rear section of the interior as it is part then of the rear deck. Now in pic 3 you can see the piece of the roof that will now be the rear deck, and all I did was turn it 180 and found that the contours, (left to right, and front to back) are BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH near perfect, you just have to be careful when positioning it and be mindful of the height, front and back. The holes in the deck lid are for, (lightweight) fuel filler and air vent shroud which are not on the OTS cars. When I did this model I pretty much just went um cut here and see what happens which is why I cut the boot lid out much later, but it didn’t matter in the end as I think it all worked out rather well. (Only my opinion).

Kind regards Michael.24349d1375628739t-jaguar-e-type-1-8-road24350d1375629021t-jaguar-e-type-1-8-road24351d1375631228t-jaguar-e-type-1-8-road24352d1375631238t-jaguar-e-type-1-8-road24353d1375631248t-jaguar-e-type-1-8-road


In Topic: 1/12 Ferrari F40 GTE Evo2 kit re-build

23 August 2013 - 06:56 PM

G'day Jeremy, I had the same thought as you as to the body on this kit not being the best, but the rest was reasonable. Also at the back of my cupboard (sorry closet) I had the (body only) busted remains of a 1/12 '57 Chev Belair, so I did the only logical thing and made a "F457 Belari". I think it's turning out ok so far.
