Shelby 427 1965's Activity

    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.

    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.

    Love it. I have two on the stock pile and have plans for two or three more. I plan on doing a big display eventually..

    Richard Burns' 2001 Impreza.
    Finished a while ago but never got pics. Box stock, l only added slight weathering. As a now Subaru owner, I guess I need to build loads of them...  Probably my last finished build of 2015.

    Thanks so much everyone! I've got a new model just finished, I'll get some pics when I get a chance.
