  1. Outstanding work, Phil! I also saw the Jay Leno feature on this car and thought it would be a great model subject, but couldn't figure out how to make it happen. You sure did. Great Job!
  2. Beautiful build, Anders! This kit served as my introduction into car modeling. I've always liked the Italeri Ferraris and the California was the best of them all.
  3. Really nice, Gary. An unusual but great looking livery for the 427. I'll be looking for those decals! Great Job!
  4. Outstanding build and very well photographed. I love your color choices. Great Job, Harry!
  5. That's pretty darn impressive! I built this model when I was about 12 years old and I've been thinking about building another one with today's better paints and techniques. If I do one I hope it turns out as nice as yours.
  6. Very Nice! Great conversion to an interesting subject.
  7. Great Job, Michael. The Tomy kits are really nice. I've built the Mercedes Gullwing and Porsche Speedster, but have never been able to find the Jaguar. If I ever do, I hope mine turns out as well as yours did!
  8. Really nice, Michael. Good looking and convincing livery, and a very clean build. Great Job!
  9. Beautiful build of one of my favorite cars. Great Job, Anders!
  10. Super clean build of a classic. Great Work, Helmut!
  11. Man, Chris! That's a museum piece. Great Job!
  12. Really nice work, Pierre. This one has been on my project list for a while. Yours will be an inspiration to get mine built. Great Job!
  13. Man, that is absolutely gorgeous. Great Work, Scott. Really nice photos too!
  14. Very Nice Work, Joseph!
  15. Thanks for the kind words, Helmut. Many years ago there was an article in the old Motor Racing Replica News that described how to convert the Heller Talbot F1 to the Le Mans version. It looked like the project was beyond my skill set, so I was very happy when Fernando Pinto of Portugal came out with his resin kit of the Le Mans Talbot a couple of years ago.
  16. Good looking build, Conrad. I noticed the wood grain on the steering wheel and console right away. Can you describe how you did it? Thanks, and keep up the good work!
  17. Here are a few new ones along with the 1966 winner. A couple of these were built over 20 years ago! This is the 1998 winning Porsche 911 GT1-98 driven by Laurent Aiello, Allan McNish, and Stephane Ortelli. Kit is by Scale Production. This is the 1992 winning Peugeot 905 Evo1 drive by Mark Blundell, Yannick Dalmas, and Derek Warwick. Kit is by Profil 24. This is the 1988 winning Jaguar XJR-9LM driven by Johnny Dumfries, Jan Lammers, and Andy Wallace. Kit is by Tamiya. This is the 1970 winning Porsche 917K driven by Richard Attwood and Hans Herrmann. Kit is by Fujimi with Historic Racing Miniatures engine. This is the 1966 winning Ford GT40 MkII driven by Chris Amon and Bruce McLaren. Kits is by Fujimi. Sorry for the duplication - looks like this car was a popular subject! Based on the previous postings, I'm not sure the tire markings are correct. This is the 1965 winning Ferrari 250LM driven by Masten Gregory, Ed Hughes, and Jochen Rindt. Kit is by Academy. This is the 1964 winning Ferrari 275P driven by Jean Guichet and Nino Vaccarella. Kit is by Monogram This is the 1950 winning Talbot Lago GS T26 driven by Louis Rosier (23 hours, 20 minutes) and his son Jean Louis (40 minutes). Kit is by Fernando Pinto of Portugal Models.
  18. Wow! That's just spectacular. I hope you don't mind, Tomasz, but I'm saving some of your photos to use as reference pics for when I build my 1/24 version of the C9. Great Job!
  19. You really got the most out of that old kit, Randy. Great Job!
  20. Great collection, Rich! You turned those kits into some really nice models. I'm a huge fan of Fisher Models as well. Similar to you, the Ferrari 312P coupe was my introduction into resin car modeling. Paul's kits gave me the opportunity to build a good replica of an interesting subject without a lot of hassle and at a good price. Can't beat that!
  21. Nice Work, Eric. You did a great job hanging in on this one till you got it done. Your perseverance has me thinking about the dozen or so models that have been on hold on my shelf for multiple years. Also, the weathering you did isn't overdone and looks pretty realistic to me. Great Job!
  22. Man, I love this one! Great Job, Steve. I hadn't heard of C1 Models but I'll be doing a search on them today.
  23. Nice work, Ray. As Rich said, FPP kits are not "shake and bake". You did a good job fighting through the problems ending up with a good-looking, unusual subject.
  24. Really nice build, Trevor. Your pictures made me think I was looking at the real thing!
