Shelby 427 1965's Activity

    Thanks so much everyone for all of the lovely comments, I've been flat out lately and haven't had a chance to be back on to thank you all. Working two jobs and trying to build two cars before uni starts again late september takes it's toll! 
    O-man - the less said about my Golfs and their running the better!

    Thanks very much everyone, it means a lot!
    @espo - It's hard to make out in the photos but they aren't California plates. They're homemade ones based around a location in the game called Concord. I designed them up in photoshop and printed them out.

     
    Cheers!

    Wow, I'm really out of the loop here, I've been away too long. I had no idea that Harry had passed away. This is upsetting. 
    Nobody pushed me to try harder with my models than Harry did. Every one I posted he was in there offering helpful advice on how I could do better, making me strive to make a model that he was going to be proud of. He suggested to Doc that my work be put into the International house of plastic book.
    I'm happy to see his legacy is living on through other people's collections now, and that we have the chance to own some of his work and have a part of him in our collection. I'll have to get on eBay and purchase one, if Amy's happy to ship this far away.
    Good on you Tom for taking this one under your wing

    Long Overdo Return. Fallout VW.
    Well, hello there!
    Feels like literally forever since I was last on the site, never mind posting a model. Some of you may remember me, a lot of you probably don't. Going to university, a breakup and real cars have sadly taken up all my time but it's summer now and I was itching to get building.
    Fans of the Fallout games will like this one. Kit is Revell's Jaegermeister one and is box stock except for licence plates and vinyl stickers. They're a bit out of scale, I know. Wire the engine bay too. It's not perfect but it's got me over the hunch and back into building!

    Yeah it would've been known internationally as the Fit.
    Love builds of everyday cars that you would see here in the UK/Ireland. There aren't many of them unfortunately.
    Extremely clean build, the plates look class.

    Thanks very much everyone, the comments are always lovely to read and spur me on to build more.
    This is Aoshima's GT-R kit, it comes with lots of different bits and pieces such as different grilles and things to do different styles. If you want to replicate that one I would recommend looking at their Kenmeri 'Works' kit range, they come with those big flares and headlight covers!

    And now with me going to Uni in September, posts will be even less frequent... I'm taking my model stuff with me but I don't expect to have much time.
    So, this is my most recent build. Aoshima's 1973 Skyline GT-R (you all know me for Skylines..) and it's a fantastic kit.
    Modifications: 
    - Racing seat for driver (Japanese style, they tend to only put a racing seat on the driver's side) 
    - Seatbelts and buckles
    - Side exit exhaust 
    - Custom front licence plate
    - Rear mounted battery and wired in 
    - Cigarette Packet in centre console
    - Lowered slightly
     
    The rear badge has come loose at the edge and it's really annoying.

    Thanks everyone!! Glad to be back on here and posting again, I forgot how motivating it was to share builds.
    Cheers,

    My bad, I forgot we had a trucks section.
    Cheers to all for comments

    Impreza Number 4, an experiment.
    This was an experiment for me, I wanted to try painting every part of the kit with an airbrush for the first time, and I wanted to finally have a try at Zero Paints.
    As you can see, the results compared to my older builds of the kit speak for themselves... I need to get a decent airbrush though, mine is horrible and made the painting of the body a real pain. 
    Box stock, no modifications to the kit. Colour is Zero Paints 555 Impreza Rally Blue.









    In the time it took me to build this kit, I bought, drove and sold a real Subaru.

    Since I was last active, I've bought, driven and sold 3 different cars, thankfully the same girlfriend though...

    Thanks so much for the comments everyone!
    Yes, the original 500 is the same scale.. The difference is crazy!

    Built for my Dad for his 60th, only add to the kit was the licence plate, to match his old one. Kit went great with no real problems.

    Back after a Hiatus... Abarth 500.
    Well some of you may remember me, it's been a while since I've been on here, but within the past two weeks I've gotten back into modelling in a big way. This was the first project I got finished.
    Built box stock, painted a Ford blue, with some Gulf stickers and orange details. Only mods to the kit are a steering wheel and pedals. Fitment is awful on this kit as anyone will tell you, so I did the best I could. Licence plates were added after the photoshoot.

    Cheers lads, means a lot.
    My friend gave me a lend of his airbrush so when I get time I'll have a go at experimenting with that I reckon.
