  1. Autoquiz 389 - Finished

    Ha ha - same as me. I found all sorts of VW based oddballs but not this one.
  2. Autoquiz 389 - Finished

    I have no idea what that is but it sure is ugly. looks like it was put together from about 10 different cars. Looking forward to learning what it is.
  3. California Pit Stop

    Great work, I really love these old gas stations. You've captured the atmosphere very well.
  4. Hooper & Co Diorama

    Not been here for a while and these interior photos are really atmospheric. I know what you mean about interior detail but having been looking at showroom interiors for another project there isn't actually that much. Maybe the addition of skirting boards (to soften the wall to floor join), plug sockets, brochure rack and some pictures on the wall would be enough.

    Stunning, lovely colour scheme too. What is the main colour? Don't think I have ever seen one of these built before.
  6. Manx Dune Buggy

    That really nails it, love the big metal flake paint. That finish looks exactly the way I remember them. Wish I'd picked up one of these kits now!
  7. Gas Station update July 30 2018

    Hi Bill, thanks for this, I've got the dimensions from your Need Help post. One of the guys in our club does some pretty good resin casting, such things like WW2 aircraft bomb bay interiors and he's goint to try some pumps for me. I'll probably go for a kit of parts type approach with some flat panels first.
  8. Gas Station update July 30 2018

    Absolutely superb Bill, clever use of materials too. Would you mind sharing the pump dimensions? I'm looking at some simple resin casting of various styles of pumps. I'll be following this thread with interest.
  9. Autoquiz 381 - Finished

    No idea, but I see many different styling influences in that body shape.
  10. Hooper & Co Diorama

    You look as though you could get used to that! I notice a Dresden registered car (an S3?) in the background of one of the shots. That would be a really good drive in one of those.
  11. Sizing Questions

    Good advice there. I'd also recommend you build something, anything really to find out what materials, techniques and tools will suit you best. Even quite small buildings take a lot of effort if you want a decent level of detail.
  12. Hooper & Co Diorama

    Looking good David, hope it gets the recognition it deserves and you enjoy the weekend.
  13. That's a really nice job, nice paint too, At first I couldn't figure out what was going on with those tail lights.

    Good choice, PM sent

    Interestmg, these little compacts really do seem to work much better than anything else in 1/25. Your diorama set up is perfect right light, all the shades of green. I love it.
