    Seafire FR.47
    Just a rather quick build of a new airfix kit. I've wanted to build one of these late-model seafires for quite some time now. This thing with its contra-rotating props and 20mm Hispano -cannons is ,in my opinion, what a real fighter should look like.

    The underside is still missing couple of lenses and a piece of flap which I managed to misplace.

    Afterall, the kit wasn't quite as good as I had expected. It hat a lot of well detailed parts, but the fuselage halves were badly warped and were a huge hassle to glue together properly, and the landing gear were a bit fiddly as well.

    I went to highschool...
    ...And all i got was some lousy doodles.

    I've always done somewhat well in school, but as an extremely bad writer I've never been good at taking notes during classes, so I just usually draw instead. And now as I have just finished highschool (Or its finnish equivalent) I thought it would be nice to recap what I have achieved during these three years, so I thought that i'd share some of these doodles with you guys. I like draw all kinds of things, but mostly cars and motorbikes and other mechanical things. Most of these drawings are first sketched with pencil and then finished by using ballpoint pen or marker pen. Most are drawn on A5 size paper.

    I know lots (if not all) of these have many errors in details or even in general shapes, mainly because I had no way of checking any details when i was drawing. These were merely made to pass time. And since many of these are several years old, I don't neccesarily even remember what I was trying to draw, so most of the time, I'm just guessing here.

    So here are some of my personal favourites, not in any particular order:

    Rally car. Lancia Beta?

    Honda Scrambler. With what appears to be a 2-stroke engine, for some reason.

    The one of many Opel Omegas I've drawn. I own one of these cars, so I've drawn quite a lot of them.

    A Quite funky looking Honda.

    Wrecked sportscar. I really have no idea what it's supposed to be.

    A Jaguar-ish sportscar?

    A garage. With things.

    Yet another rally car. A Peugeot?

    A tiny Audi.

    I made a couple of suggestions some time ago for Lotus Carlton and Saab 9000 Turbo.

    Many thanks!

    I decided that the colour will be just plain and simple silver with flat black hood and wheels. I'm hoping to use some steel wheels, but if I can't find any, I'll just use the Rally wheels that came with the kit.
    I drilled some holes for fuel and brake lines to the undercarriage and painted it flat black with silver oversprays:

    I also finished some parts for the engine.

    The kit doesn't have a regular exhaust system, and I don't like the sidepipes the kit had, so i'm thinking of using this exhaust from AAR 'Cuda or Challenger T/A. I think it will fit nicely with some modifying:

    '69 Camaro street car
    Hi guys!

    I've been building model cars a few years now, and I just noticed that among my about 200 models there Isn't a single properly built first-gen. Camaro. I think that it is time to change that, so I bought a Revell '69 one. This kit, to be precise:

    I would have preferred the stock Z/28 or the Yenko S/C, but since it was available more easily, I got the Baldwin motion one.

    So, off to the bench with this one.

    I usually have nothing against spoilers, sidepipes or racing stripes etc, but I think that the guys at the BM went a little bit over the top with them with this car. Imho the whole car looks a bit grotesque with all those bits bolted onto it, so I wont be using all of them. I just want to build a honest, no nonsense, 4-speed, big-block street car.

    I started the build by prepping the body for paint and cutting open the trunk door:

    I also started modifying the front fascia by removing the molded in hideaway lights (Is that what they are called?) and replacing them with open ones. I think it gives the car a pretty nice look:

    I painted the engine orange as a one unit. I know this isn't the way they left the factory, but as I'm building a street racer, I give myself some liberties.

    To be continued. Soon.

    Always nice to see more Alfas getting built. I built this same kit some time ago, and i thought that it went together pretty smoothly. Looking forward to see what you can make out of it.
  13. 340-6 added a post in a topic Alfa Romeo Alfetta   

    The engine certainly has proven itself on racetrack, I remember my father mentioning that his friend used to own and race a GTA 1300 junior many years ago. The car was then unfortunately sold to Sweden, which I think is a shame since there are certainly not many of those things left in world, let alone in Finland.

    Many thanks, Michael! I've always had a place in my heart for older Alfa Romeos. Alfetta's might not have been the fastest things around when compared to German sports cars of the era, but I'd have one over a Mercedes or a Beemer any time, just because of the looks and the sounds.

    I repainted and foiled the front fascia along with the bumpers and I also repainted the rear lights and blinkers. Some old style Finnish plates were also added.

    Here's the finished Alfa:

    The chassis before:

    The chassis had a lot of holes for screws and some molded in texts. I Sanded the texts away, filled the holes ,added a new exhaust tip and I also drilled some new holes for axles so the car sits a lot lower now. I painted and weathered the chassis so it's general lack of detail is not so obvious now.

    The interior of the model was not so bad looking, but I just didn't like the seats, so I did some modifications. Old seat on the right, left ones modded.

    I also filled some holes on the floor and repainted the whole interior:

    Finished pics comig soon!
