  1. What was the best car or truck you ever owned?

    My best/most fun car would be handsdown my very first car, my '05 E46 M3 CS, in fact after i sold it i spend 5 YEARS sulking and crying on the inside about the fact that it was gone. Bought many other sportscars since (i only buy sportscars really, no use for more doors or space for me), nothing even came close. In fact now that im 24, i have recently Bought another E46 M3. only i still must admit my previous one was more to my personal taste, thankfully i still have the memories! My worst car by far was my 1993 Toyota Supra MK4 Earotop (TT manual), absolutely hated that car for all the problems it constantly had!
  2. Tamiya McLaren Mercedes SLR 722

    I went with 2 layers of TS65. This is how it looks when its outside in the sun now: Some small things im not totally happy with, but the can ran out and overall this is/was my best paintjob untill i did my 599SA Aperta that same afternoon (topic will follow)
  3. Tamiya McLaren Mercedes SLR 722

    So i finished of the paintwork on the SLR yesterday.... Was a little short on paint i found out, so it may not be as well done as i might have wanted to (especially the front bumper), but in general theres little to no faults with dirt and dust in the paint so that went well for a change It is not yet treated with compound and/or wax.... thanks both (Y)
  4. Tamiya Jaguar XJ220

    Havent done much recently, only cleared the body (i suddenly realized i completely forgot to clear the paint). Decided to go with the TS65 clear. Its a pearl clear, and i must say the result it gives looks awsome! Cant wait to put the matte black spoiler and "hoodgrill" in.. How it looks in the sun:
  5. F430 Challenge - PIC HEAVY

    The body has finally been painted. Needed some corrections after the 1st time i painted it, now it looks decent enough.. total of 3 wet layers of TS31. followed by 2 wetcoats of TS13 clear Now letting it dry for a month orso, and then finish it off completely
  6. Tamiya McLaren Mercedes SLR 722

    So ive done very little to nothing on my model builds last couple of weeks. Been pr-occupied with loads of other things. What i have done however is paint and clearcoat some of the models so i can keep going in the future without having to stop due to the bodies harding. Ive shot the Mclaren in Tamiya TS19, so far the car only has 1 wet coat. Now to sand it down (1200-1500-2000 grid) than another layer and clear it, and then let it rest for a month orso. I think the color looks awsome for a SLR McLaren!! And this is how it looks out in the sun The only thing im still not decided on is what clear to use, do i use the TS13 (regular clear) or do i use TS65 (pearl clear). I think TS65 will suit the shine and flakes fromt he metallic paint, and use the TS13 clear on my VIPER build (which is going to be yellow...)
  7. What did you get today?

    that 430 is a nice build. im just starting to finish mine of....
  8. Top Secret GT300 (Widebody Supra)

  9. Revell has a C7 street kit... https://www.revellspecialist.nl/bouwdozen-geschenkset/auto/2014-corvette-stingray.html
  10. What do you drive?

    Previous page i posted some pix of my M3 just after i gotten it, now i finished cleaning it here are some more decent pics of it and some info about the car: Its a 2002 E46 M3 coupe, original paint all around still, and ive just clocked it at 107500KM (thats roughly 67000miles i believe) and has been fitted by a HPF stage 3 turbo setup. On low boost the car makes roughly 812hp and on high boost 997hp. Theres plenty of videos on youtube where you see these stage 3 cars eating superbikes and big name (tuned) supercars...
  11. "Leaving the slump". Mine's Evo.

    For a minute i thought it was going to be a replica of your own Evo, untill i saw the pic and realized u were talking about the mines (tuner) evo Looks good so far, interested to see the end result!
  12. What did you get today?

  13. Tamiya Jaguar XJ220

    Done a little work again yesterday. got everything finished now except for the body things. Now its time for the hardest and my least favorite part.... fitting the glass and windows... i always get glue and fingerprints all over them sadly...
  14. Tamiya Jaguar XJ220

    Yeah i noticed that also, well see how it turns out, thx for the tip! regarding the color, well the colors it came in from the factory i find very boring, so i decided to change it up a little with french blue from tamiya (TS10) and the lightblue revell paint matches real good for the interior
  15. Tamiya Jaguar XJ220

    So, as you all are probably used to by now from my side. I tend to work on multiple models at once. The reason is simple, i get bored quick. but besides that its also a matter of area to spray bodies, so i do multiple at once when i have the chance to do so, and while i cant i work on the rest untill i cant go any further. The body of the XJ220 i already sprayed before xmas (together with the MK2 and GT3 porsche) so it has had plenty of time to get hard, and now ive started to work on the rest of the kit: It all starts with an engine right? Quick test of the interior, the seat inserts that are still gray on the pics, will be made black before going in for definate: And last but not least (for this moment), a test with the painted body on top:
