maysula added a topic in Big BoyzA restored Porsche 910 in 1/12Hi
This kit a built many years ago, recently I built another Porsche 910 so I had this kit for refs.
Unfortunatly It fell down to the floor so I had to restore i some way. The other build had aftermarket decals
so I could use the decals in the Tamiya box.After repairing and repainting I put on some extra rivets and
fasteners in various places.
The version I choosed is from Targa Florio 1967, so I also decided to weather it.
This job took some weeks this summer and I´m satisfied to have a" new "model rather quickly in my collection :-)

This is a Tamiya kit with decals from S27.
The S27 decals are not totally correct, had to add some decals and make a new rear
I used some detailparts such as rivets, hoses, connectors ,wires and switches.
Turnlights and positionlights are scratched.Self adhesive cloth on the seats.

This is the Tamiya jäger kit but with Brumos Racing Daytona-77 decals from BBK.
I have done some detailing along the way, rivets,bolts ,hoses, braided lines and so on.
As you can see I did a weathered car, was a little nervous for that but I think it turned out
Thanks for looking!

maysula added a topic in Big BoyzA restored Tyrrell F1 1/12Hi
This kit was built by a friend many years ago, standing on a shelf since then so there was a lot of dust!
Now I have tried to clean and restore it. I used decals from S27 for the Argentinian GP of -72.
Painted with Tamiya spraycan recomended for this kit, replaced the smaller type of tires to the bigger ones
that was used from -72. Also I added rivets, hoses, hosebands ,alurods,valves and some wireing too.
The most difficult part was to paint Ceverts helmet ! Long from perfect but it will do.

maysula added a topic in Big Boyz1:12 Matra MS11 1968Hi
This is the Tamiya kit of the French racing icon. I decided to do a version that is on the pictures in the manual but that version can´t be
made out of the kit parts ?!
This version of the car was used only during the practice for the British GP-68. The car had a much smaller rear wing than usual. So it had to be
scratched and also the oilcooler with it´s support mounted on top of the gearbox is scratched, the manual says it shall be placed on top of the oiltank but that is wrong. I had very good help for this conversion from the ModelFactory Hiro manual for theirs 1:20 kit.
I used several etched parts , rivets, alutubes, valves , switches and hosebands. The body paint is from Tamiyas spraycan TS11.
There is a WIP on another forum: http://www.f1m.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=18732
