    34 Ford custom pickup
    My first real attempt at a custom where slicing and dicing is concerned. It is for our local show next week for the "Orange" theme.
    chopped and channelled over the Phantom Vickie chassis. Paint is Tamiya brilliant Orange with gold pearl mixed in the clear. Only thing I'm disappointed in is with all the trial fitting I had the hood fitting but in final assembly the cab to radiator distance changed and now the hoods too short!
    Oh well,comments and critiques welcomed

    Hi Harry,
    Found this build thread and have to say as much frustration that it caused you it looks great!
    Our local club was given this same car to be done as a group build and auctioned off for charity. my job are the wheels. I have a question for you though. Did you polish the metal parts with anything and if so what did you use? The spokes on the kit we have are very dull and some of the other metal parts look dull as well.
    Any help you can shed would be appreciated.

    This is the Tamiya kit built with the Studio27 decals and photo-etch. It is a very simple kit but decalling is one of my favourite parts of modelling. I find it the most therapeutic. Hope you enjoy!

    Alfa Romeo TZ3 Corsa
    This is a Studio27 kit. The TZ3 Corsa is a tribute to Alfa and Zagato and is a 1 off build. It was commissioned by Alfa Romeo collector Martin Kapp.
    The kit was painted with TS paints starting with Mica silver then mica red and followed by clear red. Unfortunately, the pics don't show the color as good as in real life.
    Thanks for looking

    Toyota 2000gt "Spider California"
    This one was inspired by a rendition I saw in a japanese model mag done by Steve Stanford. I started with the Hasegawa kit, removed the roof, added the "bullet" from a Mercedes 300 slr. The front windshield was ground down to what I thought looked right and the side windows are sheet acetate.
    Thanks for looking

    Thanks everyone for the kind words! I built this model 5-6 years ago, I'm just getting around to taking pics and posting them. So you see more of my builds soon. Hopefully I won't wear out my welcome!

    Ferrari 355 GT3 Daytona
    This is the Scale Productions trans kit w/S27 decals. I used the tissue paper/white glue for the windshield cover then sealed it then decal.

    Thanks Skip,
    I found very little reference and what I did find was not color. As for the steering wheel I think it should be the banjo style but I didn't want to rob one from a Fujimi kit.
