  1. Forgot to mention that the photography is courtesy of my brother, Misha.
  2. Hi All, My first post in a very long time. This is my build of the Tamiya VW Beetle, with the excellent Texas 3D Customs wide body kit (designed by BlackBoxSTL). Done as a curbside. Scratch built a partial roll cage, for all that you can see of it. Added Porsche seats, headlights, and outside mirrors. Paint is Testors Color Shift Emerald Turquoise with Tamiya TS-13 clear, Tamiya TS-40 Metallic Black, and Testors Extreme Lacquer Bronze. Wheels/tires are from Aoshima, as are the decals on the windows. Disc brakes came with the wide body kit. Exhaust tips are 1/8" aluminum tubing painted Tamiya TS-40. Very well designed, and printed, conversion kit. Thank for looking, Mathias
  3. Here are a couple of mine... Tijuana Taxi Rommel's Rod Thanks, Mathias
  4. Beautiful job on a classic! The yellow and chrome really pop!
  5. Beautiful piece of work! Mathias
  6. Hi David, If I remember correctly I airbrushed it... outside! Must have had perfect conditions that day... Thanks, Mathias
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Thanks for the kind comments! Here are some pics of the engine and interior... Mathias
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Very nice! Makes me want to start the Fujimi 917K I have waiting in the wings...
  13. Thanks to everyone for their kind words! Mathias
