    I built this kit a while ago, liked it very much ! Your engine looks very good with the weathering ! The removed mold lines makes it look far more realistic, good job !!
    The rest of your work is nice too

    Hi and thanks all ! I´m glad to see this old thread of mine :-) First, the whitewalls was supplied in the kit, it was a very old kit.
    I remember that the fit was rather bad, the dash was to long so the doors couldn´t be closed properly, biggest problems was the frame,
    the car is leaning a little to one side. I had to warm up one side of the frame with a lighter just to make it fit at all.
    There was an issue with the front uprights, don´t remember exactly how it was ... The front has BMF on the side ribs
    I do remeber it was a tricky build but I like the way it turned out in the end, it´s a great design I think !

    A restored Porsche 910 in 1/12

    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 :-)

    1/12 Porsche 910 "Team Wicky" LeMans -68
    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
    license plate.
    I used some detailparts such as rivets, hoses, connectors ,wires and switches.
    Turnlights and positionlights are scratched.Self adhesive cloth on the seats.

    Hi and thank you all
    It´s paint on a brush, hold the brush on a distance from the bumper then splash it with your fingertip, easy but try it on something else first .

    1/12 Porsche 934 Brumos Racing

    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
    rather well.

    Thanks for looking!

    A restored Tyrrell F1 1/12
    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.

  13. maysula added a post in a topic When was the Bandai STP turbine issued please   

    I have built this kit a few years ago, the box is gone but I have the manual left but there is nothing in it that can
    tell us what release date it was. I should guess around 1968-69.
    This kit is very rare so it could bring you some money :-)

    The braided line is 1,5 or 1,6 mm by Tuner model manufactory ( T2M) , I bought them from . Some of the prepainted fittings
    are from" modelers" in scale 1/12, I belive they don´t make them anymore.
    And thank´s all of you for the nice comments :-)

    1:12 Matra MS11 1968
    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:
