Topics I've Started

1932 Vicky

04 November 2014 - 02:17 PM

The body is Jimmy Flintsone resin.

The frame started as the Phantom Vicky, but was then heavily modified to convert it to a dropped axle front and the rear suspension is scratchbuilt. 

Everything else came from the parts box.

The color is Ferrari Rosso Scuderia.

This was supposed to be a simple project that went a little bit further that it should have. (story of my life, lol) 

I just wanted to try a new masking method for flame jobs. Then I decided to brake up the hood, so machined my own aluminum air cleaner hats. The suspension is modified Aluma Coupe and the wheels are from the Smoothster kit. The front tires came from the Aluma Coupe and the rear ones are from a Tamiya F40, but they have been narrowed. 

The paint is some blue nailpolish. The flames are all painted and for them were used two different whites, two different yellows, bright orange and two different reds - all decanted from Tamiya spray cans. Everything was covered in 2k clear. I showed the model at Overland Park this year, so I thought it was cool to make a Kanzas registration plate with Heartland in it.

LB Performance Ferrari 458 Italia

03 November 2014 - 04:59 PM

A regular customer of mine asked me if I could convert a Ferrari 458 into the one Liberty Walk tuned up.

I gladly took on the challenge and ordered everything that was necessary.

 

The base for it is the 1:24 Fijimi model of the Ferrari 458 Italia.

This is what is in the box. Over all very promising looking and typical Fijimi.

This is a transkit that I am going to use. It came from Honk Kong and it includes a new front bumper, new front lip, rear wing, wheels and tires, side skirts, rear diffusor and the four fender flares.

Contest annual

03 November 2014 - 02:14 PM

Hi everyone.

Not only my hobby shop is about 100 miles from me, but they….well……not very happy...

Anyway, I have great trouble getting magazines where I live. There are a million and one magazines about mountain living or how to paint my kitchen around, but nothing about models. However, I have somehow managed to collect all the Contest Annuals from both model magazines for the last 10 years or so. Now I am having really hard time locating the 2014 issue of the Model Cars contest annual. 

Can someone please help me get one!

TIA
