  1. That's just a great color for the Miura. I don't know what it is about this particular Lamborghini, but I think it almost always looks better in non-traditional colors.
  2. Mako Show Rod

    Top notch work!
  3. 1949 Mercury Coupe

    I've got two kits of a '49 Merc just so that I can do one of them completely stock. Nice work!
  4. Chaparral 2J (scratchbuilt)

    Top notch work there. I would not have guessed scratch built if you hadn't said something.
  5. 1/6 Scale Cafe Racer

    Your detail work is fantastic. I'll be honest, if I had a little motorbike that looked like the one you posted I'd drive that to work. I've personally thought about buying a Honda Rukus and modifying the ever loving daylights out of it... then I remembered I seriously need to curtail hobbies that cost a lot.
  6. I've had a Revell 1959 Galaxie for years... since I was a teen at least back in the early nineties. So when you add my love of all things wagon, the natural course of action here was to immediately go purchase a resin wagon body from Flintstone. So in a way I need to blame your build here for this most impulsive purchase. Well, that and Whipper Snapper. Keep up the good work. I'll be following in your foot steps here. Those wide five-spokes are perfect so whatever I build at this point will have to use the same.
  7. Man, if you had a lead on one of these. The front-end of the Police Buggy is very reminiscent of the Honda N360.
  8. Rip open, look at all the parts, think about how I'm going to build it, and then... put it on the stack. One of these days I'm going to actually finish something.
  9. Great tip, this is much better than what I've used in the past. I'll need to hit the hardware store ASAP.

    That does appear to be an Austin engine, complete with the SU carburetor. Not entirely unlike my own 998. Although this one appears to have the generator versus the alternator which makes it from a Mk1 or Mk2 Austin Mini (assuming the mold is entirely accurate to the motor).
  11. worlds most expensive model

    Is it just me or does it appear to be missing the front windscreen?
  12. Tamiya Mini Cooper Mk. 1

    Actually, and I ended up having to look this up, Mr. Bean's Mini as it is commonly know was a 1976 Mk.3. His first mini was an Orange 1969 Mk.2 that was wrecked off screen after the first series. This is trivia I did not know until now. As a basic guideline to spotting the differences, Mk.2's still had the sliding windows; small, rounded taillights; and external door hinges from the earlier Mk.1 design. From Mk.3 on the windows were rollups; you had larger, rectangular taillights; the grill design is different (although the metalwork behind will support the earlier grills); and the hinges were concealed. The previous owner of my Mini was aiming for that look when he painted the hood semi-gloss black even though Mr. Bean's Mini was technically yellow. This was a look I wanted to change immediately when I first bought it, but one that I'm now growing quite fond of. And thus we conclude with my pedantic input.
  13. Mini Cooper now with more pictures

    Very cool looking! The wheels look like a cross between 10" Minilites and a 14" wheel rim. Whatever it is, it works.
  14. I can't even fathom the dexterity it takes to work with that level of detail at that scale. I can't wait to see how this turns out.
  15. Rebuilding a Ferrari Testarossa Spider

    It's interesting that the original owner, having spent so much money on this kit, appears to have done little more than just assemble it. Although from what I can see it doesn't appear they were hamfisted in their assembly.
