  1. Isdera Imperator.....98% scratch built!

    Shucks, I think I have seen the image of this kit before, I wonder if its what got me onto the C111? Going to add it to my wish list, thanks!
  2. Isdera Imperator.....98% scratch built!

    I have been looking over photo's of this too recently, as well as the C111 thinking how much work they would take. Interesting subject for sure, I am following!
  3. Hasegawas Lamborghini Miura SV

    That does look amazing indeed, you should be very proud of that. I guess it is much like anything else, we all have different expectations from what we produce, I would be over the moon if I managed to finish a car to that level, but your bar is set somewhat higher. Thanks for sharing the photos
  4. Hasegawas Lamborghini Miura SV

    I love Miura's too and I plan to buy a Miura model, after I have moved and settled in. Looking forward to what you think of the Hasegawa.
  5. 1/10 scratch built Holden HX Overlander Panel Van

    This whole topic is just, WOW! Great job so far, I am really looking forward to updates!
  6. I have watched you do amazing things in the Pagani but the new cars don't really appeal to me. This however is something that I would love to see as it gets built up, I hope you cover every detail in the same way you have the Pagani, I am really excited to see your build thread!
  7. Thanks so much for the step by step process @Dann Tier You make it look so simple, but I don't think I would have figured it out on my own. How do you get the dot of glue on the tool you use? Do you just dip the point into the superglue?
  8. I would love to see step by step photo's. I have no idea how you can make something so small!
  9. Tamiya Mini Cooper 1275S Rally

    Thank you both, I appreciate the positive feedback!
  10. Tamiya Mini Cooper 1275S Rally

    Thanks so much I appreciate the compliment. The wheels do look alot better than I was expecting with this colour. Before we moved to Portugal my wife and I were looking at Nova Scotia. I would still like to go visit it someday, preferably when theres no snow though
  11. Tamiya Mini Cooper 1275S Rally

    This update starts on a more positive note, as I managed to patch the paint where I had sanded through before. I am leaving it as it is in the photo's for now, simply because I don't have the courage to try and add the rest of the decals just yet. What else is obvious from the photo is that the roof rack and spare wheels still need to be addd on top as well. A close up view from the front. I am sure I mentioned it before, but if you compare the indicators you will notice the left hand side one is brighter than the right. This is because I covered the entire rear part of it with silver before gluing, whereas the darker one I did not, so it has only the red of the body behind it. Here you may notice the rear light lens is missing, it got stuck to the masking tape I used to cover the body while patching the paint and sadly I only noticed it was missing when I had thrown all the used tape away! Look closely at the exhaust, can you see it has been drilled out? Close up shots show so many flaws, but I do enjoy the ambience of these two, it almost feels as though you are peering into a real car. The engine suffered a bit of paint loss from handling etc. I am not sure if it is normal for enamel paint to rub off so easily from plastic. Maybe some primer would have helped it last a bit longer? I added the spark plug wires, and while they are not to scale I am glad I did. I was hoping to add brake lines too and so on, but my patience ran a bit thin. Don't look too close or you will notice the faults! I am planning to complete this model, but as of right now I cannot find the motivation to work on it. It is at least done to the point where I can glance over it every now and then.
  12. Rockford files 1977 firebird

    I have watched two seasons of the Rockford files and I really enjoyed Garner's portrayal, especially seeing as he would rather back out of a fight then go in somewhere looking for a fight. I don't know much about PI's but I would think they are not getting paid to constantly have punch-up's I am following this build and would love to do something similar in the future.
  13. '32 Ford 5-Window Coupe Is Done

    I am surprised to see you painting the parts while on the tree. I have seen other people here on the forum saying its less effort prepping and painting off the tree. Do you find your method effective and how do you touch op the points where you cut the parts off? That's a nice green by the way
  14. 1968 Shelby Green Hornet-----Update! 8/4/18

    Just wow. The level of detail you put into your work never ceases to amaze me. Thanks for sharing!
  15. 1/24 tamiya ferrari Mythos

    The colour polished out really well and looks amazing. As a kid I remember seeing photo's of Ferrari's in magazines. I never knew that Testarossa meant a boxer motor, thanks for sharing your video.
