  1. Here is another quick update I have to say I am really pleased with the result. http://i.imgur.com/VTlZ18J.jpg
  2. Here is an update on the funny car got a lot of colour and shading to do to the explosion and the backround to put it in context but I think the explosion will look quite convincing when done
  3. Thanks for all the info guys just hope it's all there and there are no crucial bits of the instructions that have been eaten.
  4. Hi all just bought this off ebay its a chancy buy as the box is badly rat/mouse eaten but never seen a kit like this before (metal and plastic) so thought I would give it a go. there are several bits off the sprue and the instructions are badly chewed but it appears to be all there anyone built one of these I paid 16 quid is that expensive or cheap I dont know.
  5. here is tonights update you may wonder why ive painted the wires on the bottom of the leds. well thats because I know from bitter experience that the glue from a glue gun will conduct electric so i need to insulate the connections.
  6. Hi all this is where I am at tonight not sure I like it yet feedback please.
  7. That rings a bell italeri probably as I don't ever remember buying a testors kit, never even heard of testors till recently.
  8. Hi all just for a change from christine I am going to try and do something with this old model. Its been in the draw for years no idea what it is but I am going to cut the roof off and de seam it, maybe a few other mods dont know yet, maybe a drag racing dio I dont know ? any suggestions welcome.
  9. Well,,,,,,,, it's,,,, Finished!!! unfortunately one of the super troupers failed and to fix it I would have to take it all apart, so, since its glued in place it will have to stay off (insert swear word here). So what do you think have I pulled it off
  10. Well this shows you how far along we are I have started crushing christine into the loading bay I am so nervous, this is make or break. I have the bumper and grill bent into it, it's now the car. No pics I really should have Christines lights working but to late now I think especially when. The wings are crushed in (not enough room all my leds are 5mm) and I can't damage the paintwork as I mixed the colour and spilt the pot I had it in, so if I ruin the paint I have to spray the whole car again.
  11. Hi folks and tonights update is, got to try and figure out how to attatch the seat to the dolly for the camera man/woman to operate the camera and then figure out how to attatch the boom mike to the camera then some wheels for the dolly. We really are on the home run now.
  12. Well I've started building the other 2 cameras this time they are not Panavision they are Cisca they are being built as a pair but I am giving one a different lens, also one will be on a tripod and the other will be on a dolly. little bit more detail to put on them then build the tripod and the dolly, then the camera men\women the rest of the crew a boom mike I just suddenly thought of (i wonder if that could\would be mounted on the dolly with the camera) some kit boxes, film reels, all the cables then the dreaded crushing christine into the loading bay.
  13. Hi all thought i would post some pics of a hobby I used to enjoy before my eyesight got so bad
  14. Hi all last night I went to my first Ipms club meet, I have to say they were very friendly chaps, there were no elitists among them and my models seemed to go down ok, I was worried about taking them (I took Moochie's death and unusual showroom )incase they weren't good enough, but in the end my worries were pointless as no one said anything bad about them. I was made to feel welcome. I was invited by another member, but a modeler walked in and was made to feel just as welcome good evening enjoyed it.
  15. You've caught me out the tanks and other stuff are 1/35 the people are 1/24 thought I would get away with it the difference is only 1/4 of an inch.
  16. Lights Camera action I have got to say I am quite chuffed with John Carpenter I dont know if he has one now but the photo I have with him on the set of Christine he is sporting a moustache so I have given my little man one, he dosn't look much like John, I mean john is much slimmer than mine and he is only wearing a jumper on the pic I have, but he could have been wearing a jacket earlier so not too worried about that.
  17. Hi guys I know these are not strictly cars but its how they are being sold. hope its allowed, I am sure somenone will delete it if not.
  18. Hi all tonight's installment thought i ought to do some work on the director and his stuff and finish the lights. here is where I am at now. Here is the little guy I am going to use as Mr John Carpenter. with a little persuasion I got him to sit. So now of course he needs a seat. and here he is with the finished lights so thats tonights installment.
  19. Ok guys I had got bored of this and was going to put it on the back burner but due to the plane I decided to build to get my mojo back, here I am again (I have decided I dont like planes) so here is what i am up to now I have painted the logo on one side of the trailer, which at first I thought looked rubbish but then I thought, I don't know a new business, couldn't afford a proper paint job so maybe did it themselves, anyway what it is, is what you got. then I thought about finshing the lighting I have 2 of these doing the third as we speak, one will be shorter just to add variety. so thats where i am now.
  20. That's incredible work very realistic.
