  1. These two Aoshima Nissans are almost out of box. Both have suspension lowered and wheels changed. Older Gloria was easier, as it has the old battery style floor. Also changed the exhaust tips.
  2. Steel wheels are from Ukrainian scale car production items.
  3. Moebius Models Ford F-100 with following changes: Resin Def.Model MRAP tyres (1/35). Lifted suspension. Scratchbuilt front bumper with winch and brass shackles. Modified rear bumper and brass shackles. Scratchbuilt rollhoop with scratchbuilt led bar. Random stuff added to bed. This one fortunately had a good windshield.
  4. Belkits Opel Manta was built as a street car. That meant lowering the suspension and changing the wheels. Rims are from Beemax Volvo 240. Body color is Tamiya TS-100 and side stripes came from Hobby Design.
  5. I built this Aoshima/Beemax Volvo 240 as a street car. I changed rims to resin steelies and tyres to road tyres. Scratchbuilt muffler. Passenger seat added. Otherwise, almost straight from the box.
  6. How did you do that oval exhaust tube? I didn't see an explanation. Is it a kit part?
  7. This project started when I found 1/32 Hispano Suiza WWI engine. It is designed in 1915. So I had to find something to put it on. Behold the Smer 1912 Mercer. Awful kit, but it was cheap and perfect for 1915's engine. Some cutting and lengthening, so the engine would fit. Better tires from parts box, Eduard gauges etc. Lots of modifications. You see them when comparing to box art. Last photos are with 1/32 Hino Contessa. It looks so small.
  8. Wonderful kit from iMech inspired by Ian McQue's fantastic art. I just added some gargo and the base.

    Widebody BMW M3

    Unfortunately there is no engine in this kit. Although it has some nice detail in the engine compartment. Glass is just stock kit glass. And that one headlight is missing for a reason. It's turbo air-intake as Powerplant wrote.
  10. Hi. This is almost out of box. - Added little bit custom paint areas behind the decals. Paint is suppose to be completely blue - Added carbon fiber wing and silver carbon to rear hatch - Changed wheels
  11. Hi. This is the new BMW M3, built as a street/track car. Changes - Widened fenders - Widened rims. I used Fujimi's wide spoke wheel set. Can't remember where the centers came. - Added carbon fiber to front lip and rear spoiler - Added 350Z rear spoiler as a roof spoiler - Changed exhaust tip and made wastegate ehaust trough bonnet - Added passenger seat and made seat harnesses.
  12. Nice beater. I would like to know more about that engine.
  13. This was quick one-day build of Bandai's excellent kit. It is very tiny, 11cm or about 4 inches. Little bit of painting and weathering and ta daa. Finished. Hardest part and where I goofed a bit, were canopy windows. I didn't want to use stickers that came with the box. But that aside, these kit's are super detailed. Those details are perfect for washes and highlighting. Thanks for looking.
