  1. Hi John, The wheels are Pegasus 19" & 23" Hellas. They are mounted to the '39 Wagon Rod chassis that I am using for this build ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheers
  2. Hi John, Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ Sometimes the conditions for spraying a paint job like this are perfect, this one was such instance ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yes, the decals came with a black background. See the link below: https://www.indycals.net/decals/f1/78lotus79.html Michael at IndyCals is makes a great product, and has great customer service! Cheers
  3. Thanks Mike! I tend to use Tamiya TS-13 gloss clear right out of the can, or Testors Extreme Laquer clear. Then wet sanding/polishing to a certain extent depending on how the color/clear coats go on. The black cars are all Tamiya TS-14. All of these cars were sprayed with rattle cans, except for the belt lines on the Nova (can't remember if it was Tamiya clear orange, or Testors Colors by Boyd Orange Pearl...), and the Vantastic, they were airbrushed. Cheers
  4. Hi Tony, Thanks! The two tone gray is actually from the Aztek decals that I purchased separately. Very labor intensive, but worth it in the end. I forget the exact base color I used, Tamiya Silver Leaf (?), over a black base. Cheers
  5. Hi Bart, Yes, it is the 1/1000 scale version, I should have mentioned that in my post ๐Ÿ˜† The lighting was extremely easy to do. Cheers
  6. Built this a couple of years ago. A genuinely great kit and easy build. I think the Aztec decals required more work than the plug-and-play lighting kit ๐Ÿ˜œ Cheers
  7. Those are really cool! I wish it would be possible to obtain a modern Holden Ute here. Although they are GM products, the design is very unique.
  8. Nicely done David! Back in the 70's those custom vans were all the rage here in California. Cheers
  9. Duh! Helps to re-read my own post... Tom the wheels are Aoshima "aftermarket" 20" BBS, link below: https://www.amazon.com/Aoshima-Tuned-No-25-Plastic-Model/dp/B01MZYHXQX/ref=sr_1_2?crid=1KSPAYCN10JDV&keywords=aoshima+wheels&qid=1663281812&sprefix=aoshima%2Caps%2C157&sr=8-2 Cheers
  10. Thanks Tom! IIRC, they are Fujimi "aftermarket" wheels, 18" BBS-style. They are nicely done with separate centers, sleeves, and multiple colors of decals to accent them with. I just checked on Amazon where I got them originally and this style is no longer listed... Cheers
  11. Thanks everyone! Might get this one finished by the end of the year. Couple of other things on the bench currently ๐Ÿ˜‰ Cheers, Mathias
  12. This is the Pegasus Hobbies vinyl Spinosaurus kit I completed last year. Added some additional foliage, rocks, water effect, etc. to the base. Used a combination of brush painting, airbrush, oil washes. The drool is monofilament coated with Micro Krystal Klear. Fun build. Cheers
  13. Here's one I have "waiting in the wings"... ๐Ÿ˜‰
  14. This one has been sitting untouched for far too long... ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
