  1. I made this 1/35 watchtower from scratch. Basic shapes are made from Pringles can and toothpick can. Lots of styrene profiles is used. Bottom character and flying thing are from Bandai. Top soldiers are from Industria Mechanika, but modified.
  2. Aoshima kit with modifications - Hobby Design rear wing - Hobby Design photoetch parts - New exhaust tips - Color: Tamiya Pearl Light Blue TS-58
  3. Jurva

    Nissan GT-R

    Aoshima kit with modifications - New wheels and tyres - Evo 10 rear wing - Fujimi photoetch parts - Color is my own mix.
  4. That was my thinking too.
  5. Idea for this Honda tuning company J'S Racing tuned MG-B came, when I found nice wheels, that had Honda logos. So I widened them and lowered car to get right stance. I changed drivers seat, added racing harnesses, external oilcooler and suitable decals.
  6. That's a sticker believe or not. You could find them at craft stores probably. They are post card sized and have Kodak marking at the back.
  7. I used hairspray technique. It has 4 layers of paint. Rust, grey, green and blue. Every layer has hairspray between them. After that, some oil paints on top.
  8. More like a show car. Could be used in drag strip of course.
  9. It's a parts bin creation. I made the pipes. Blower is obviously modified. Intakes are Allison V12 exhaust headers.
  10. I wanted to try something new. I used red textured paint from Zero paints.
  11. Nothing fancy. Instructions said to paint the whole lense with red. I just made small round tape pieces to mask the centers.
  12. Haha. Yeah. I wouldn't too set up my car like that. Too much wear on tyres. Sometimes though, little bit of camber adds good amount of aggressiveness to the overall look. Sidenote: The way you told your opinion, was a great example to lots of people. 10 points.
  13. Could you elaborate what's puzzling you. Transaxle idea came from fellow member, who build similar thing. Can't remember anymore, because it was a long time ago. Basically rear axle is quick change rearend, that has gearbox fitted "inside".
  14. Well, I didn't search info on that. Engine idea came from old Mooneyes dragsters, and I didn't noticed radiator on those.
  15. Yes. Rear one is from a blower.
  16. Wheels are cambered versions, inside is thinner than the outside. It's also style choice in european and japanese cars.
  17. I started this almost 10 years ago. In that time I got more suitable aftermarket parts. Chassis, front suspension and drivetrain, are what I started with, all those years ago. They are almost 100 percent scratchbuilt with some kit parts. Same goes for the engine. Seats are Highlight Model Studio. Belts are Eduard.
  18. Well, here is something that you don't see very often at dragstrip. Idea for this, came from seeing one at Hot Rod Drag Week 2019. This one has it's original diesel engine with bigger turbo and intercooler. Had to modify all the pipes and intake manifold. Tyres are Nascar slicks with Gofer decals. Rims are resin ones, that came without bolts. So they were perfect to be drilled to 6 lug pattern. Paint are Tamiya rattle cans(64 and 100).
  19. Almost box stock Fujimi Golf R32. I had this Hobby Design skibox, and wanted to build an european style car. So I got this Golf. Changed wheels and added some camber. Also painted the hood with some stripes. Idea came from coffee mug.
  20. 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.
  21. Steel wheels are from Ukrainian scale car production items.
