  1. Let's see your TV and movie cars!

    Built this one a few years ago. AMT/Aoshima kit, very fun to build!
  2. I'm in the process of building a Tamiya F40. Looking through all my reference pictures I know what you're talking about. What I did is pick up some Scale Motorsports Clear carbon fiber decal sheets. They have a carbon fiber pattern and the negative space is whatever color you paint the part. Then you just paint the parts different shades of yellow or grey and apply the carbon fiber pattern with the decals.
  3. NNL North - 2018

    NNL North is less than a month away! I'm hoping to have a couple builds wrapped up and ready to show. Anyone else planning on attending?
  4. 2016 Camaro SS

    Was shopping for kits with the niece and nephew. I told them to find a car they think would be cool to drive in real life and then we could build their model how they would if they owned the real thing. My mom points to the Camaro and says, "That's the one I would drive." Well me being me, when someone tells me about a nice car I always have to ask, "Yeah, but what color?" And that is how my next project came to be! I just missed her birthday so it'll be a belated gift. Using AMT's snap version of the car to build up quick. It is a very nice kit. Good looking body and stance, with plenty of detail in the chassis and interior to pick out with a brush. Started with hot rod grey primer. Then a base coat of Testors One Coat "Graphite Dust". Interior with be a Black/Grey combo. Wheels are soaking in whitewall bleach. They will be dark as well. I'm not often a fan of black wheels but I think with this color they have to be darker. More to come soon!
  5. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    Yeah that didn't come across quite like it was supposed to. Within the selection that is on sale, most are in that price range.
  6. Grab those bargains off those racks... (HL sale)

    Stopped by Hobby Lobby tonight and they are clearancing a bunch of kits. Most automotive kits going for $6.75 - $7.50 each!
  7. What would YOU like to see as a model

    I just want a solid, accurate 1969 Chevelle.
  8. Ferrari F40- Fujimi 1/16

    Definitely excited to see this come together. Very nice work so far!
  9. AMT 1/20 '93 GMC Sonoma 4x4

    This is just their Syclone kit with a lifted suspension and without the Syclone specific body cladding.
  10. AMT 1/20 '93 GMC Sonoma 4x4

    I'm a huge S-Series fan so I'll be able to look past the scale. Had the bright blue release of this for some time now and it looks like it's well made. The only thing stopping me from building it is that i wanted to do a white Baja S-10 and scared I'll never keep the blue from kreeping through. I have the Chevy grill and engine. Interesting note on this kit is that it has the Syclone engine.
  11. Testors Spray Can seeping, anyone else have this happen?

    I've had it happen to two cans of Testors.
  12. How do You Say 1:1?

    I'd just say "Full Scale".
  13. Ferrari F40 - Fujimi

    The work bench is packed up at the moment. Had to tear down some walls in the house so put everything away to keep it safe. Hopefully be back at it in about a month. I was moving stuff around in the basement tonight and really wanted to sit at the bench and do a little work!
  14. Oh yeah, this will be in my stash when it comes out! Goofy tires and all!
  15. Ferrari F40 - Fujimi

    Finally made some progress on this build just in time to pack up the bench in preparation for more house construction. It's a pretty nice kit so far. Lots of prep work on the body. It's solid but lots of seam lines to clean up. I'm also filling in the extra vent on the side of the engine cover. Most progress was made on the interior. The dash and seats were masked, sprayed with textured trunk paint, then painted. The dash was painted Testors Panzer Gray and then a light mist of Battleship Gray. Photo etched pedals from one of my many F40 detail sets. The seats were painted Testors Italian Red, detailed, then coated with Flat Clear. The decals were taken from an unused F40 kit in the stash. Also sanded down the shift gate detail and added a photo etched piece after the texture and paint. Once the house is done being taken apart and put back together I'll get back to this build!
