  3. Mazda MX-5 (Retro Flame Job)

    Hey Guys My model club have a monthly meeting & some of them are themed, this year Flames was chossen as Junes Theme. Being a builder who generally builds JDM & exotics, I wasnt super keen on building an old car, so came up with the idea of doing a retro themed brand new MX5. pretty happy with how its come out, I designed up & cut my own vinyl mask to suit the MX5. The Tamiya kit also comes with a female driver figure, I decided to modify her too, I enchanced her ....erm... "assets" & custom made her dress in a rockabily style. This is what the driver looks like out of the box & some WIP pics of the paint mask. Thanks for looking Ash

  5. 24 Hours of Le Mans Build

    Thanks Guys! Again was great fun! Yesterday I managed to get some pics of the body out in the sun before I had to run off for my sons school trip to the museum. I have since livery'ed it up but i forgot to print the Castrol logo for the roof so will sort that out today. I also decided that the ride height was way to high so cut & dropped it last night. More pics soon
  6. 24 Hours of Le Mans Build

    Looking great!!! well I finally did it! Finished with 1.22hrs to go!! will livery it up tomorrow once the paint has cured, should’ve flared the rears, & might still... stance is a tad high. But overall I’m pretty happy with my 24hr efforts, definitely not my best work but happy. It’s been a pleasure again David!

  10. 24 Hours of Le Mans Build

    Couple hours into the race, got all the body kit pieces attached, not a very good fitting kit, spent a lot of time getting everything flush. I’m back off to sleep for a few hours
  11. 24 Hours of Le Mans Build

    Dont have any race cars in the stash that could be built in 24 hours. So decided on a pysdo Racecar - Gran Turismo's RX 7 LM (lets just pretend that LM stands for Le Mans....) Anyone remember this car from GT2? I have such fond memories of drifting this thing round Rome Night! Look at how bad the graphics used to be!!! There were 2 versions you could collect as a prize car, red or green, I think I may go with the Green for something different. GT5 saw an update of this car which just looks like their SuperGT (JGTC) car... Much better graphics! I've had to take a few liberties as the car & bodykit don't exist in plastic or resin, so Aoshimas Mazdaspeeds RX7 GTC will have to suffice. I want to add some fender flares for that racecar look so might do that Friday & Saturday if that's ok. All painting & assembly will take place during the 24hours, I'll also do the sponsors as vinyl graphics (stickers) as I am a signwriter its easy & quick to do it this way. Wheels are from a Tamiya Porsche GT2. Fingers crossed I can complete this kit in the 24hours! & also keep the Wife from killing me.... Ash

    It was great fun last time, really enjoyed building along with you! I'll need to check the stash tonight & see if I've got any racecars or lemans inspired kits I haven't started on.

  14. Liberty Walk - NSX

    Hey Guys Recently finished Tamiyas NSX, which is such a great kit! I built it for the inaugural Themodelcarbuildoff group build on Instagram, which is a 1 month group build. Scratchbuilt the Liberty Walk Front splitter & Sideskirts, Massive wing is from Hobby Design. Minitaire Paint was used exclusively on the interior, also tried to add some texture to the seats etc. Wheels are from Fugu Garage & are amazing!!! There's 5 parts to each one! Go get some! http://fugugarage.com/# Body is painted in 'Scale Modeller Supply' Prismatic Silver over gloss black, looks amazing out in the sun, very difficult to capture in photos. I wanted a futurist out there finish for such a futurist looking car. Really enjoyed this build, highly reccommended! Ash

    Yeah hence the lack of progress.... (so stoked for him! Been a long time fan of his, but also a big fan of Vegas, couldn't believe they'd both be in the finals, shoulda put $20 on it at the beginning of the season!!! I love that Idea of the Stanley cup in the back, Might have to try to make one, maybe it could be filled with petrol instead of Champagne....
