  1. Very beautiful work Pico. I saw your message on Caradisiac Forum. So, here I am to admire your work … 🙂
  2. I don't really "want" the white tyres, as it would be easier for me to keep the black ones. But I want to respect historical Truth. I made many researches about the color of tyres and I found that carbon was added to tyres first in 1910 in the US and only in 1915 in Europe. Perhaps I'm wrong and I will search again. However the ICM kit is a Taxi from 1909 (long wheelbase) and not 1910 (short wheelbase) as mentioned by ICM. GeeBee, you show two pictures of London Taxis (the next kit from ICM). Let me show some pictures of Paris Taxis whith obviously white Tyres :
  3. Hello, The 1910 Renault Paris Taxi is a very Pleasant kit. I've already started to built it. Soon in November, the London Taxi version will be available from ICM. However, it's a pity to have black tyres, as everybody knows the car tyres were white in those days before WWI. So my question : Does anybody have the Renault Taxi kit and also an ICM 1/24 Ford T kit whith white tyres. Are the Ford T white tyres suitable to fit on the Renault Taxi kit ? I already know the T speedster is not suitable for this because it has two different dimensions of tyres on front and rear axes. Thank you.
  4. Very nice work. The paint job is perfect (not to shiny). With what did you re-chromed the windscreen frame ? I am actualy building the same model. I noticed an important gap between the hood and left fender.
  5. These two cars are really fantastic indeed ... Thank you for showing.
  6. Hi Pico, Very nice project. Sure, il will be outstanding ... Where can we see your other Figoni & Falaschi scratchbuilts, Talbot-Lago Tear Drop & Delahaye 165 ? Thank you.
  7. Very interested in your wire wheels. More détails about them ? Like you I like pre-war models and i've a lot of them to build (like your Bugatti, Alfa-Romeo, Mercedes, etc ...) And for these models, I think you cannot avoid making your own wire wheels.
  8. Very impressed by this amazing work . Thank you for sharing it with us ...
  9. Thank you for these very clear explanations Tapani. As I have an unbuilt Continental kit, perhaps I will buy the Zephyr body if available. Another question : wich car is it on the left of the second picture (dark red roadster) ?
  10. You say that Airtrax 1941 Lincoln Zephyr Coupe fits the Monogram '41 Lincoln Continental kit. I'm surprised because I thought the Continental wheelbase was longer than the Zephyr wheelbase. So, how can it fit ? Or perhaps, am I wrong ?

    1936 Toyoda AA

    I just finished the 1936 Toyoda AA from Tamiya. First of all, no error in the name : "Toyoda" became "Toyota" only in 1937 (only to have a beter sound in japaneese language). For this realization, I have chosen the authentic color named "Haizakura" amongst the 3 colors which were available in 1936 for this car. I'm very satisfied with the paint which is not too shiny for those days. The building process is in the section " On the workbench ".
