      Maintenance Complete   07/19/2018

       The maintenance went very smoothly. With the recent database problems, a table got very very big, and needed some surgery. You should experience any changes.

  1. Auburn Speedster Monoposto

    Hay Joel Didn't think it was criticism at all. Good open comments make me look harder what I have done. I was just trying to explain how my weird mind works with these things!! Catch you next time Brian
  2. Porsche 935 .

    I missed this one. Unique build mate. Once again it's stance & colour that makes your builds look so real. Imagine it at Bathurst!, coming into the Chase! Brian
  3. Auburn Speedster Monoposto

    Thanks for the kind comments gentlemen. I don't think Chip has to much to worry about. I really appreciate the comments on balance though, it's so important for a custom or hot rod design. Interesting feedback on the wheels. I don't start a custom till I have the wheels sorted, they are what the whole thing is built around. I guess I look at it as a modern interpretation of some classic styling and not an Auburn. I honestly don't know what other wheels (that I have) would work for this one. Thanks again Brian
  4. Auburn Speedster Monoposto

    Ebay buy that turned up with no wheels & tyres so it was ripe for a resto rod treatment. Raised the guards in the body, dropped the running boards & made it a single seater. Moved the front guards out & widened the rears. There is a few faults in the body but I'm happy with the concept. My son said it would pop monocles at Pebble Beach! Hope you like it Brian
  5. Lamborghini Countach biturbo

    Sydney Time Attack - Very nasty Lambo with two big ones Great model - I like turbocharged motors in a model. Something different Brian
  6. Alpine plus

    Thanks for the encouraging remarks. I really enjoy these types of builds. They make you think as they have to look integrated & possible, if not plausible.... huh! Have a good one Brian
  7. Alpine plus

    This was inspired by some artwork I came across on the net but if you think about it, it is pretty much in line with the early hot rods. If you take a '32 Ford Coupe, make it more aerodynamic by chopping the roof & dropping the guards, add a big racing motor in the back and you get something not to dissimilar to this... I think. Anyway it was a fun build. Brian
  8. Mercedes AMG GT3

    Good one mate. Colour & attitude work but its the little details that are really cool like the coloured lenses & the tyre decals. Brian
  9. 55 Chev Bel Air .

    This a truly superb model - it looks real in the photos which is the true test. The unique colours are special but its the chrome detail that makes it. Great stuff Bruce
  10. Hudson Hornet Salt Racer.

    Sweet! Awesome paint & the concept really catches the era. Would make a great subject for a poster! Good one Bruce
  11. Model T Reverse Engineered

    Thanks for the kind comments gentlemen. Much appreciated. I like the idea of it being dignified Chris. As I researched it, it became a much more important part of my collection than I first thought. The impact this little car had on society back then must be almost as significant as the internet is today when you think about it. Cheers Brian
  12. Model T Reverse Engineered

    I have a fair collection of hot rods of all types & I thought it would be cool to have an original stock car to show where they all came from. I started with the AMT Fruit Wagon of all things but wanted a typical touring body that made up the majority of T's sold here in Australia. I could not find an early bodied kit anywhere so I cut & spliced a pair of two door bodies together. The job is not perfect but it gives you the idea of what they were like. I kept it black because everyone paints their T's various colours to be different. Final shots are grandpa with some of the kids!! The joke in my club is that I cut up a hot rod to make a stocker rather than the other way around which is my norm. Have a good one Brian
  13. 32 Ford's

    One more for the bucket. I didn't need much of the original kit! Brian
  14. Zent Cerumo ( Lexus ) .

    This thing is all attitude. Would be awesome to see on the track. Beautiful finish & detail again mate Well done Brian
  15. GT40/GT3

    That's the car!!! Awesome isn't it. Didn't want to copy the colour scheme exactly, its more of a tribute thing. I used an old block & added some cam covers, some wiring, a set of down-draft webbers & the home made air cleaners. I originally wanted to put in the trumpets on the webbers but couldn't get the right ones. Thanks for the comments Brian
