Shelby 427 1965's Activity

    Thank you!
    Unfortunately not, the Mk1 kits do, but all Mk2 kits are LHD only.

    Well you all like drag racing, right?
    Went racing again this year.. This time we decided to go all out and go 60s style with a name and everything. Won a few races and got fastest reaction time of the weekend with a 0.092. I've been the youngest racer there for two years straight and we also won award for the best "Team", which we were all very proud of, considering we were only having a laugh, especially with my Mum making t shirts as a joke! Drastic measures were taken to try and shave seconds off my time but most of it wasn't very worth it. Some pics for you... The even makes for a very comfortable bed for me and the girlfriend too, VW thought of everything...
    The car is back to daily driver duty, with the stickers off and running as great as ever

    Thanks so much everyone! 
    Seriously? That's awesome. I'd love to go there, I love mooneyes stuff, so cool. 
    Hahah! That's how I do it. I drag you all in with my avatar of Sophie in the hopes you'll stay and look at my models.

    "Lara" - a very personal build.
    Well, I've wanted to do this for quite some time, so I guess it's about time I built my baby.
    My first car, and my current car - a car which some of you may know from my first car thread that creeps up now and again in the General section. 
    There is an insane amount of custom work in this, unfortunately I wasn't able to convert it to right hand drive or put big bumpers on due to it being a Fujimi kit and not a revell one, but my car is technically supposed to have the small bumpers from factory anyway. It's as close as I could get to my car..
    I could point out all of the various touches that I've done, but I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
    These aren't the most recent pics of my car, the model is more up to date than the car pics, but you get the idea.
    Thanks for lookin', all comments are much appreciated

    Same as with the Civic, a weathering exercise on a kit built a long time ago.. Again, phone pics, sorry.
    What I did:
    Repainted interior
    Repainted and wired engine
    Wires where the missing spot lamp is so it looks like it was ripped off
    Repainted chrome around windows
    Weathering

    '87 Civic
    I was without my laptop and camera for a while so excuse the pics.
    This was just a weathering exercise on a kit I built a long time ago when my building skills weren't up to much.

    Always been meaning to see if the Aoshima McLarens are good. Awesome build, looks flawless to me too.
  8. Shelby 427 1965 added a post in a topic Revell AG VW Golf Gti Mk1   

    Very cool. Have this on the stock pile and it'll look well beside my Mk2. Very well made!

    Lovely Charlestone. My parents had a few of these.

    Cheers!

    Thank you so much everyone, it means so much! 
    The decals are Hobby Design decals, my friend bought them for me so I'm not sure from where.
  12. Shelby 427 1965 added a post in a topic 70 Superbird   

    Flawless. Absolutely perfect. Favourite kit, favourite car. I love it, I'd love to get another kit of it and make it as good as this one.
    Where'd you get the RoadRunner decals can I ask?
    Congrats on the great news too!

    Thanks very much!
    I wanted the pace bar but couldn't find anything over here and wasn't willing to buy a kit I didn't want purely for a light bar.. I'll find one eventually, there's always time for it to be put on

    I like Skylines, okay?  
    This has been by far my most challenging paintwork and decal work... Base kit was Aoshima's Nismo Z-Tune Skyline, with Hobby Design Decals. Apart from that, kit is stock. Paint consists of 3 colours - Mercedes Polar White, Volkswagen Tornado Red and Tamiya Black.

     
     


    And the finished product...
