  1. Thanks guys, I did think it was strange, it was at the head of my page but went when I deleted the post.
  2. Hi all do any of you post your builds on Instagram if so be careful of what you post. I posted my porsche 934 resto build and have been told to either take it down or set up a paid partnership with them as its product placement (I'm assuming it's because I have good year and castrol logos (amongst others)) I've deleted the post but if that's the case I think I will be deleting a lot more.
  3. I found something better to power the GT40 than some marker pens and some plumbing spares.
  4. Sorry venom nope. I have it stripped (now just have to strip the paint off.
  5. Hi all well it cleaned up fairly well, just got to strip the paint next. What I'm planning involves using these
  6. It is the old trumpeter kit that's just over a Yr of dust from my shed (ido my spraying in the shed)
  7. Hi all got this back out of the shed, can you guess what I'm going to do with it.
  8. Another of my favourite products I have an old stiff brush I use for stuff like this. Dip in the powder. And flick over the engine by pulling your finger through the bristles. You should end up with this
  9. 9OK so this next one will be in 2 parts as its more than 10 pics long. Doing an old oily engine . So heres how it looks before First my favourite leaky engine product. So put it on joints or gasket areas (think about where a real engine would leak)(for anyone who doesn't know anything much about engines don't put it on fuel injection or electrical areas, fuel injectors do leak but not using this product) Whilst this is still wet my next favourite colour (I know you may be thinking is he nuts, but trust me) This is important keep engine in the orientation it will bevin the vehicle then load the brush with white spirit and flood the areas with the colours on them, you should end up with this.
  10. OK so it's nearing the end now, I suddenly realised I have it being sponsored by Dunlop and Goodyear. Easy fix
  11. Hi all I luckily won this on ebay for 56 quid (which you can see is less than the original owner paid, not allowed to start it till my birthday so just under a month. Yes the box is a bit beat up but the kit is all good.
  12. Hi so heres another quickie (very messy one) Take some AK real metal in this case steel put it on a cloth take some string and press it into the AK steel Fold the cloth over the string Put your fingers on the cloth over the string and pull the string through Lots of braided hoses, you can use different thicknesses for different sizes of hose or even double it put it in a dremel and spin it up to double the thickness. Put some hearshrink on the ends and paint steel.
  13. Hi all I'm thinking of expanding this to include bodywork, interiors or any and all aspects of my modelling techs, firstly would anyone be interested, secondly should I post it all here or set up separate sections for each subject.
  14. Anyone seen a front engined 934. No that's not where this is going I just thought it looks beliavable at first glance.
  15. Hi all here's my method for aging plastic parts on car engines you know fuse boxes, air boxes drive shaft gators and such. I use mig 502 Abteilung model colour copper oxide blue patina I roughly dab the 502 over the part Then hold the part the way it will be in the car and scrub loads of white spirit over the part and let gravity do its job
  16. OK Sprayed the base colour on this quite pleased with the result so far.
