  1. Nice job Tom! Really like those wire wheels. Sure wish the base kit for your build was still available from Revell.
  2. Great job Bruce! I have built a lot of race car kits and I to enjoy the decal process the best. Main thing I’ve learned when applying is patience, patience, patience! Russ
  3. Thanks Steve, R&M stuff is top notch Thanks for liking Thanks Phil, took a long time but happy I percervered. Thanks for the nice words. Thanks, those are the areas I wanted to focus on. Glad you liked Thanks for the nice words and I also wish for it to issued again as lots more ideas in my head:)
  4. Great job Luke! Wish I could get a black paint job looking that good. Do you use the can or airbrush and how many coats do you use?
  5. Thanks all for the comments. Like I said it was good to push myself to try new things.
  6. Hi Rastislav, Thanks for looking. The belts are included as well as multiple pulley options in the Replicas and miniatures S.C.O.T blower kit. Highly recommended. Thanks for the comments Tim. I also knew I would want to build more than one of these so I have more:)
  7. Quick build of a 1/43 kit from Provence Moulage. Was going to paint fluorescent green rather than decal but ended up using kit decals. These kits are fun and fast to build. I like to build one in between 1/25 scale kits.
  8. Finished this one just in time for it to qualify for historic racing! It is a transmit from Scale Productions. The kit is well done and it still is a very striking livery even to this day in my opinion. It is a car I saw race in Portland and although not the best in performance it certainly left a sound impression on me. Although this driver combo wasn’t at that race I wanted to build the Scott Maxwell vCard as he is a fellow Canuck!
  9. Finally finished! For me this was fairly ambitious build with a lot of modifications. I was wanting to build something of a traditional hot rod. The roof is coffee stir sticks cut and sanded to shape roof lines. Then utilizing the R&M quick change rear end with the traditional buggy spring. The flathead is from the 32 sedan with the SCOT blower also from R&M. Colour is my interpretation of Ford Washington blue with blood red interior. I’ve included a pic I loosely built the model of not sure who’s it is but someone on forum may.
  10. Agreed his detail kits are great. I still have the 956 Porsche but yet to start! Seems too daunting.
  11. Looks Great Bruce. I agree kit is a good one just wish I waited for different decals. I did the Falken vesion which I like but kit decals were very thick and non-conforming.
  12. Great Result Marco, I always have a soft spot for this car as it was our family car for most of my childhood..albeit in red on red.
  13. Wow! Thanks for all the positive comments. It’s appreciated
  14. Thanks Steve, Hope you can join our Zoom meeting tonight! Got another couple projects on the go. Russ
  15. LOL! Good point I chose the title based on the non factory colour and “ hot rod” stance but thanks for looking
  16. Thanks for all the replies! Claude, to answer your question I picked up from a craft store years ago a whole assortment of pearl powders. I add some to my clear then airbrush as a mid coat then go over that with straight clear. hope this helps.
  17. This Ferrari 250GT Spyder California was a rebuild that I first completed 20 plus years ago. It was not a bad build but the orange peel in the paint was terrible. When a couple of trim pieces fell off I decided to see how far I could take it apart and it seemed to cooperate. I kept the overall look it had before but lowered the stance and added MG brand wire wheels and tires.they almost have a big and little kind of look.the paint was an experiment using Tamils mica red then clear red and finally red russet pearl in clearcoat. I also added some 3D badges from model factory hiro and replaced the kit seats for something I had in my parts bin. Although not perfect I’m much happier with this on the shelf now. thanks for looking.
  18. Look Great on a very complex decal and masking job! Makes me want to start on the ones I have! Russ
  19. Thanks all for the comments and yes Steve and Phil you both should build yours! Also forgot to mention my new favourite clear is the Mr Hobby super clear with uv. It dries super hard and fast and levels out great on its own very little polishing needed.
  20. My final build for 2020! mostly box stock with plug wires added and Cadillac air cleaner from Replicas. Paint is Ford Diamond green with some fox pearl added which doesn’t show well with pics. A dark green interior added for contrast and the wheels were sprayed with tamiya smoke to tone down brightness. I got this tip from fellow modeller Steve Hayden. As has been mentioned before the kit is very well engineered and build up quickly, great slump buster kit. I hope you enjoy. Russ
  21. Well done Steve! Look forward to seeing it in person hopefully someday soon. Russ
  22. Very well executed! Looks like you can hop in and fire it up
  23. Thanks for all the replies. It was a fun quick build although vacuformed "glass" isn't my favourite:)
  24. I acquired this little kit from a fellow modellers collection. It was very successful car for Colin Chapman as it won its class 501-750cc and its chief mechanic was no other than Graham Hill. It is a very straight forward curb side kit from Profil24. Everything goes together well for a multimedia kit. paint is tamiya racing green and the bare metal is some self adhesive foil from mfh. comments welcome
