    How is it going with this one?
  4. Dwarves in 1/24.

    Thanks, I'm happy I could amuse you a bit.
  5. Dwarves in 1/24.

    Yes! It’s that Vespa, though modified a fair bit. Check out my content, I made a topic just for that one some years ago. Edit, check it out here:

    That’s how much there is: Bonus: Thanks for looking, see you next time.
  7. Dwarves in 1/24.

    Hello, I post it here, because the scale fits our cars, and they will eventually end up as cargo on a truck or in a van, so yea... Last week a friend of mine got me some stuff from Japan, I got some kits, books and Aoshima’s Honda Motocompos in 1:24 that my buddy pulled out of a vending machine… In the machines there are these eggs: And in these eggs are half built model kits, in my case these Motocompos. Honda Motocompo is one of the best inventions of the 80ies, they are tiny motorbikes that can be folded to about the size of a big suitcase, can be lifted by one person using handles in each corner, and there is even a car that was designed around the Motocompo (Honda City), where it fits perfectly in the trunk! These are sooo cool. I love them. I want one. I want the car too. But the best thing about them is that the Japanese not only made a tiny folding motorcycle, but that it’s not primitive, it has blinkers, lights, a speedo and whatnot. Interestingly, when you bought the car the bike was an option like a radio or a sunroof, but you could get the Motocompo without the car, and then it was shipped in a cardboard box! I built my Motocompo folded, I added brake cable, corrected the colors, removed the headlight (which was a pain because the plastic is hard as a rock) and replaced it with a photoetched item by CTM that fits perfectly, removed all seams and retouched everything. What I could, I took apart, cleaned and put together again. Sadly, the body of the bike is glued so that I can’t take it apart without ruining it, so I couldn’t correct everything I wanted… As a cherry on top, I made the cardboard box too. I will build one unfolded, one in really used (I have a pic of one of these with a wooden box instead of a seat), and one that will fit inside. This Motocompo gave me the kick to finish one of my other projects. Last year I got Aoshimas Honda Monkeys in 1/24 and started to modify one of them, took apart as much as I could, cleaned the bits and assembled them again, it got scratchbuilt handlebars, all cables, mirror, all lights, I repainted everything but the gas tank and the seat, and I gave it a layer of dry mud just to try it out… That’s how it turned out:
  8. Anybody else also a fan of Juha Airio?

    This became a kit, and that's what I made out of it:

    It’s a 1973 Ford Escort by a company called Belkits. Here:

    I dig this one out. A friend came over with his Canon, and we experimented a little with it while photographing some of my tiny junkyard. I have managed to edit only seven pics until now, but these are so cool that I think you will enjoy it. Have a nice weekend!
  11. Scratchbuilt 1982 Aussie Ford Falcon XE Part 2

    Very cool. I can't get over how clean it is. How did you made the lamb skins on the front seats? They look very convincing. I followed the build up when you were building the body, but at some point I forgot about it...
  12. 1973 Ford Escort XL / Belkits / 1:24

    That’s an awesome picture!
  13. Stock 1932 Ford?

    Trade! I’m up for that if we can sort it out somehow. I shall write you what I need off it when I’m on the computer (writing off a mobile right now). @all, thanks for the answers. Maybe I should have written what I need it for, a while ago I stumbled upon pics of an old dirt track ‘32, and although the running gear is somewhat modified (split wishbones, overriders) the changes are minor. I thought I can use the two or three parts off the Revell kit and build the rest, but the Revell kit is absolutley not suitable for this project. I can use the rails and the body only. Not even the firewall is like I need it, no K member, no front or rearend, no brakes, no nothing...
  14. Hello, I got a 1:25 Ford Coupe from Revell, and besides the body not much is stock, is there a kit that I can use as a donor that has a stock chassis? I'm after frame, front- and rearend mostly.

    Taking pictures is not my strong suit, but I try to do my very best out of respect for you, the viewers. Most of you will never see this one live, so it’s my job to present it to you in a way so you are not wasting your time by klicking on this topic.
