  1. The Revell 928 was amongst the first models I ever built. Mine was moulded silver and I left it unpainted too.

    You've done a much better job than I did. Better with those wheels too.


  2. Welcome back to the hobby. That's a great kit to get back into it with. Good work so far. Brush paint, and rattle can for the body is the way I've built many, many models, and as you're showing, you can get really good results. 


  3. I got sidetracked with work (why do we have to go to work!), so the 2002 has been a little ignored lately. However, I'm determined to get this one finished, so small steps forward...

    Body has been polished with Novus 2, then Novus 1. I'm going to do a final polish/wax at the last stage after everything is assembled.

    I couldn't resist a quick mock-up to check the stance. Its good that the ride height is correct (according to my reference pics), straight from the box. All four wheels sit squarely too - I don't always get this straight out of the box, but with the likes of Tamiya and Hasagawa you don't have to worry too much.

    Underside is complete. I might try a little weathering here. Interestingly, the joint in the transmission shaft that I took the time to fill/sand and re-paint gets covered up with the rear suspension sub-frame, so I needn't have bothered!

    Interior is completed. It doesn't show well enough in these pics, but you might just be able to see the scratch built arm rests front and rear, and the silver door trim strips.

    I'm trying two different masking methods here. On the front screen, I've masked using Tamiya tape. On the rear, I've used bare metal foil as masking. I want to see which gives me the most crisp edge. We'll see...

    Thanks for watching. Comments, tips and criticisms are always welcome.

    Enjoying watching your progress on this kit. I did mine in a pearl white but that is as far as I got. Thanks for the heads up on the glass. I may do that,.

    Thanks! You got to finish yours. I'd love to see one in peal white.

    Good to see it progressing, looking great so far.

    Hasegawa are bringing out some nice kits, this one is definitely on my list to get someday.

    Yes - I do like a lot of Hasegawa stuff. Its great to see they kitted a classic like this BMW, rather than go for the newer super-car stuff. Hopefully more subjects like this will appear.

    Looking Good Sonny!

    Good save on the body paint!

    Thanks. Its not 100% saved, but good enough for this project. I can see where the flaws are, but it doesn't show so much in the photos.

    Looking VERY good, Bud!!!!

    Thanks Dann.


  5. This is not a kit I've ever seen before. I'd be so tempted to modify/detail it, but I appreciate that this has to be box-stock.

    Good work so far. That yellow looks flawless straight out of the airbrush. Just curious - why do you decant the Tamiya paint? Is the colour not available from the new Lacquer range in jars?
