  9. Ollie's strike again

    Urgh, that's why Grandma keeps sending me those terrible kits πŸ˜‚

    I posted a link up to this thread on the site anyway so everyone can see - its SO cool man, nice job! That thing with the passwords suddenly not working is a known Proboards issue - a bunch of members on there have got locked out before and had to make new accounts

    Those guys are good at what they do huh? You TOTALLY did this justice! I saw the pics on the Coffin Corner, but then when I went back to comment they'd gone...I think they got moved and I can't find them or you deleted them maybe? Anyway, GREAT build dude, absolutely amazing!! Love the paint, and you've really captured the look and all the detail of the 1:1!
  12. Revell Miata Mk1

    I've been wanting to build a full-detail Mk1 Miata (or a Miata NA, as Mazda called them) so I picked up a Revell kit a little while back and started messing with it this week. The detail is pretty good - not as crisp as the Tamiya model of the same car, but this has an engine so it's the only game in town... This isn't going to be a quick build - I'm spending a lot of time researching and referencing to get it as nice as I can make it. I have a Mk2 Miata for reference, luckily, but there's some differences between the cars so I picked up some literature to help. First up, I shot some primer on the body to get an idea of how much work is gonna be involved in getting that as perfect as I can get it: You can probably spot some of the minor stuff this will need to get the body straight, but the main thing that bugged me right away is the fit on that hood: The panel gaps aren't even all the way around, and the front edge of the hood sits low compared to the pop up lights, as you can see. It should be nice and level, like this: Rather than just using filler to bring the hood up and level at the front there I decided to use a little thin styrene strip, which I'll attach here, where the knife blade is: Like so! A little preliminary fitting shows that the front of the hood is now at the right level...but some sanding reveals that it droops a little at the front edges: I added a thin coat of Squadron white putty, let it set and then levelled it out...I think that MIGHT have got things a lot closer - I guess I'll see tomorrow once I squirt some primer on there: Meanwhile, I got the engine halves together so I can what I'm gonna be working with here: I need to strip the chrome from the head, and clean up those molded in plug wires so I can run real my own: Got some great reference material to work from here luckily! I'm really gonna push myself on this build, see how good I can make it - so any pointers and constructive criticism from our wealth of super experienced builders very welcome! More soon!
