  1. Thank you, Guy. This car would indeed be mad enough for Pikes Peak or maybe Goodwood.
  2. loool - the circuit is called "Lewis' nightmare"
  3. Thanks you very much, guys!
  4. Finally managed to make some photos of my latest build: The RB32. Here's the WIP thread with all background infos, therefore in this thread i'll only share the photos. Enjoy!
  5. I decided to make a 24th scale helmet to add to the model. The helmet is 3D printed, i have the .stl file from thingiverse. The visor is scratch built from clear plastic, mounted with metal pins. I have to make it a bit smaller cause like this it looks like a 70s helmet. Then paint in blue/silver and the visor in black.
  6. i just didn't make it to finish this one by the end of the year.
  7. Thank you Alan! The body colour is a mixture from flat anthracite, some silver and gloss clear. When you read my WIP, you learn this is a recycling project. So i had to use what i had left, that applies to the tires as well as to the fuel tank. The soop was fully scratch built, as were the headers, seats, frame and maybe some other smaller parts.
  8. jap - caught me. had to cheat, cause the distributor was in the way for the scoop.
  9. Thank you very much , Carl & David! I always try to make cool stuff seperating me from others. If i manage to finish the Formula1 Hot Rod like i have it in my mind, it should turn out super cool.
  10. Here's what i finished this year in ascending order by month: February Big Wheel Drift Trike The Gamma Turbojet December Speedway Motors Tribute T-Bucket currently working on a Formula1 Hot Rod which i'll finish next
  11. I finished my little t-bucket hot rod. In this topic i'll just post the photos of the finished model, for those who are interested in the story behind this built pls. read my WIP.
  12. As i have written in my initial posting the gas tank is also from the 1932 Ford kit. The lower part is molded into the frame, the upper part is a seperate piece. I cutted out the lower part, glued them together and sanded it into shape. Filler cap is relocated.
  13. '96 and '97 to be precise. for his final 2 years of F1 racing he returned to Benetton swapping his Ferrari cockpit with a youngster called Michael Schumacher ...
  14. I also thought of using a VeeDub before i ran across the deuce coupe.
  15. should you visit Vienna one day, you owe me a beer, otherwise the idea is for free
  16. I did not like the tyres of the MP 4/20, but i wanted to have the rims. So, tyres and rims are from different kits, but they did not fit. Had to increase the diameter of the rims with one layer of 0.5mm sheet styrene on the outside and 1mm on the inside.
  17. n.p., Austrian petrolheads have to know such things by heart, otherwise they are expatriated
  18. Sorry to say, but you are wrong. The B188 is the 1988 car, Gerhard Berger raced for Ferrari since 1987. In 1986 he raced for Benetton in the B186 car. He won the Mexican Grand Prix in it, his first career win.
