  2. The Boss 302 is just stunning! That color combination works for me.

    Hi David, If I remember correctly I airbrushed it... outside! Must have had perfect conditions that day... Thanks, Mathias
  6. Tom Daniel Tijuana Taxi

    Hi Everyone, Built this a few years ago but never got around to posting it for some reason... The Monogram Tom Daniel Tijuana Taxi. Added a Detail Master Moon tank with scratch-built mount, turned aluminum stacks, and wired the engine. Other than that, just had fun with the paint, weathering, etc. Color is Testors Boyd's Orange Pearl, clear coat is just Future floor polish, no polishing, waxing, etc. Wish they all turned out this good! Thanks, Mathias

    Hi Jim, Yes, I had to grind down the mounting hubs on the wheels to get them to tuck under the fenders. The rear wheel tubs had to be clearance at the front, and I flip-flopped the front spindles to lower the ride height a bit. Thanks, Mathias

    Hello Everyone, This is a little project that I built for a co-worker. Revell kit mostly OOB, Pegasus wheels (painted), slightly modified suspension, mesh grill, Detail Master hood pin kit (sheesh!). Shaved door handles, front bumper, rear pan. The lettering on the front, lower grill are his initials. Thought I would personalize it a bit. Tamiya rattle can TS-14, X-10 for accent colors, Testors Wet Look clear with LOTS of wet sanding/polishing. I am pretty sure that I will not be doing an all black car again any time soon... Thanks, Mathias
  10. Hey Everyone, Building a Revell of Germany DTM Audi. Kit has rubber wheels with water slide decals for the tire lettering. Any suggestions on how to go about applying? I've used dry transfers in the past, but none are available for this type of car... Thanks, Mathias

    Simply smashing! Mathias

    Probably true! I got the idea for the rear-end set-up from a Tim Boyd article in the "other" model car magazine. I didn't want to stress about the "correctness" of it, I just wanted to complete something & have fun while doing it. Am I the only one who has more "in-progress" builds, than actual finished models, that languish due to obsessing over details? (the dreaded AMS syndrome! )

    It actually does look more like silver in the pics, doesn't it? It's actually Tamiya Champagne Gold TS-75 out of the can.... Thank you sir!
