  1. Danger added a post in a topic Any consensus on a new photo sharing service?   

    I use a service called Smugmug. Decent price. Unlimited uploads.

    Thanks Zoom. Much appreciated.

    The kit is the Tamiya 300SL Gullwing. 
    BigTallDad, I forgot to take the instruction sheet when I left the show and have therefore lost it.

    Tamiya Instructions - Need Help for OOB Class
    Hey, I was stupid. I was at a show this past weekend and I forgot my Tamiya instruction sheet for my Out of Box entry. I have another show this coming weekend. 
    Does anyone know where I can download a copy? I can order a new sheet form Tamiya, but it would take too long?

    They came from my parts box, not sure which model they originally came from.

    The heater hoses are from Parts by Park. the lettering is a couple of decals.

    The frame is strong and supports the bike quite well. No sag at all.

    Sesto Elemento
    As promised here is my version of Aoshima's Sesto Elemento. 
    The colour is Anthracite Grey Metallic over a black base. Rims and Metallic Black. I also used Aoshima's detail-up kit which added photoetch rotors, seat belts, valve covers, emblems, screens, etc.

    Harley Fat Boy Lo
    This Tamiya 1:6 scale Harley Fat Boy Lo is a beast to build. And I loved every minute!
    The model is box stock and was repainted 3 times as the flame job I tried to do twice, looked like worms and not flames. I think I like this all black version better. This kit is a marvel as many items work. Wheels rotate, front and rear shocks, brake and shifter pedals, clutch and brake levers, starter switch turns and even the mirrors are fully poseable. 
    I also used the detail-up kit which added metal rotors and mufflers.

    Here are the pics again. Not sure why they were deleted as they were uploaded to the forum. You can also click on my smugmug website below and look under German cars to see the pics. 
    All the openings parts fit very well. I even sanded the edges of the doors and hood to create a little room for paint buildup, but it wasn't necessary. This was a gorgeous kit to build. Great detail and the parts fit together perfectly. One of my favourite cars of all time.

    Merkur, the red is just Tamiya acrylic red. nothing too special. 
    Gluebomb, the hubs were masked off with Micro Mask from Microscale. It's a medium thick liquid that was carefully painted on and then removed after painting the Aluminium.

    300SL Gullwing
    And here is another build from 2016, the Tamiya 300SL Gullwing.
    Built box stock with a TS-17 Gloss Aluminum exterior and red interior. Everything works on the car. Wheels rotate and steering works. hood and doors fully open. I also dipped the clear bottom in Future. This made the frosted bottom much cleared and you can see the under-carriage details.
    I wish I had more pics of it, but i'll have to wait for a decent day outside.

    Although it doesn't have 4 wheels I believe this qualifies as a rare, built kit.
    The Tom Daniels kit Devil Chopper. Originally from 1971 and I don't believe it was ever re-issued. I paid $100 for it at a show and within a few minutes other people were trying to buy from me for double what I paid.

    Ducati 916
    This is my completed Ducati 916. 
    Tamiya kit done in Italian Red over Pink primer. The only addition is some carbon fiber decal for the exhaust. Otherwise box stock. Brake rotors drilled out front and back. I've kept the one side panel off to showcase the engine.

    One from this Year - 70 Cuda
    As promised here is another build from this year. The recent Revell 70 Cuda release. 
    The paint is Model Master Plum Crazy with a stencil white interior. The engine was wired and plumbed. BMF on all the trim.
    The pics were taken under different lighting.
