Topics I've Started

2008 Audi R8

09 March 2015 - 03:19 PM

Finally finished my custom 2008 Audi R8.

In Burnt Orange Bronze. Has a custom detailed interior, Smoked Chrome wheels, Carbon Fiber Rear and Side panels, and custom Halo Headlights. Also added metallic Audi logos and markings decals.

Love how the Halo effect came out on this build.

Also Custom painted the chassis.

Here's a picture of the interior detail. Took the picture before I attached the body to the chassis. With the Body and windows, you can't really see the detail I've done to the interior. Made it look like brown leather with orange suede leather inserts on the seats and wheel. Dashboard is black suede with orange suede (added the Audi metallic decal on the dashboard). Black suede and orange suede on the door panels.

Vespa Scooter 1:24 scale

16 January 2015 - 10:44 AM

Hello everyone,

 

Well, here's another (out of my comfort zone) kit. Got the Tamiya Campus kit, mainly because I wanted the scooter.

 

Built it pretty much out of the box (not much to it). I added BareMetal Foil and some decals that I had around. I also added a bracelet to the figure. It's been a very very long time since I've painted figures so please excuse the not well painted figure.

 

Let me know what you think.

Peterbilt 359 Conventional "49ers Big Rig"

10 December 2014 - 03:04 AM

Hello everyone. Well, here's something out of my comfort zone. I normally don't build Big Rigs, but I wanted to give it try but with a twist.

 

Here's my Revell Peterbilt 359 Conventional Big Rig. This is my first 1:25 truck I've built. Wanted to build it as a semi-custom truck. As, I'm a BIG 49ers fan, I've built a Big Rig that a 49ers Truck Driver would love to drive around in.

 

Let me know what you think of my first 1:25 Truck build. Enjoy the pictures.

 

Things done:

Hand painted the gold on all the chrome.

Had custom decals created by Aftermath Decals

Detailed the engine (somewhat)

NOTE the plates. As an extra touch, I placed the plates of each states of the NFC West Division.
