  1. 1937 Toyoda AA - Bagged Bomb

    Thank you for your kind comments! El Caballo: Being a Finn I had to look up what Ranfla means thanks for teaching me a new word!
  2. 1937 Toyoda AA - Bagged Bomb

    So this is my attempt to build Tamiya´s ´36 Toyoda AA as a ´37 Bagged lowrider bomb. Paint tamiya TS-11 Maroon, scratchbuild visor and many other small details, Modelhaus swamp cooler, AMT hubcaps with Pegasus wheels and tyres. I installed air bags front and rear and had to modify front section of the frame and oil pan to clear lowered and narrowed front axle. The air suspension is now supposed to be in its maximum lowlow posotion. Oh, I also decided to convert this to leht hand steering version. Pics:
  3. 1988 Buick Regal Lowrider

    HI! This lowrider model is based on a 1/25 promo which had no information of model company that has made it. Promo was packed in white cardboard box with color prints of drawn pics of red Regal and large Buick- logos. Maybe it´s made by Brooklin or MPC or AMT... I don´t know. Same company has obviously made the Buick Reatta promo bcause it it so similar to this Regal. But on to model: I Disassembled the promo and painted it with tamiya paints. Body has: Surfacer white + Light pearl red + lame flake ( PS) + clear + metallic orange ( thin mist layers ) + clear Some modifications to rear subrame was done also and finally I added Pegasus wheels. Pics:
  4. HI! This model started as a 1/25 snap rescue kit from MPC. Now it´s a model of a Search And Rescue vehicle with some extra detailing, scratchbuilt roofrack and so on.. Comments and questions are welcomed of course. Pics:
  5. 1988 VW Golf ( Rabbit )

    Well It should be yes but it isn't. Roofline is really a bit too low. I know this because I own a 1:1 1988 Jetta which has the same roofline height. Thank you for your nice comments and fot the rabbit info.
  6. 1988 VW Golf ( Rabbit )

    So this is 1988 VW Golf. It's called VW Golf here in Europe and VW Rabbit in U.S. if I'm right. Actually this kit represents a chopped 1986 model but I left fixed " went " windows off to make it look like '88 model with older side mirrors and grille. Fujimi has done a great job by molding a chopped Mk2 Golf body so it wasn't possible to build this this one as a stock version. Using tamiya bright orange spray led to other things in decal placement.
  7. 1988 Porsche Turbo

    Old Monogram kit with aftermarket brakes and Aoshima tyres & Revell wheels. Paint: Tamiya dark deck tan + clear. Local ( Finnish ) licence plates. Pics:
  8. 1957 Bel Air Copper Rich

    Thanks for comment. I wanted to try some new methods in painting and bmf work on this model and I wanted to build a 57 bel air with Buick grille insert so here it is.
  9. 1984 Ford Transit

    Thanks for comments. I found that fabric tape on decoration department of local shopping centre here in Finland. Kit has opening doors with toy like hinges so I decided to glue them shut.
  10. 1957 Bel Air Copper Rich

    Hello! This is my almost box stock club project. I tried to achieve some sixties mild custom touch into this one. An AMT kit with some minor modifications and detailing, Pegasus wheel / hubcap combo and tyres. Paint: tamiya, hand painted scallops, some extra BMF work to the top to achieve brushed steel look. Thanks for looking!
  11. Hi! Italeri rereleased an old Esci model kit of 1984 Transit so I had to build one. This time I chose to build it as a stock version with some scratchbuild detailing as reflectors behind all light lenses, towing hooks, exhaust tip and cooler behind the kit supplied see - thru - grille etc. Upholstery has been made by using some fabric tape on seats. Next one will be a custom van. Thanks for watching!
  12. 2015 Mustang - Revell Build and Play

    I sanded off that silver paint behind headlight lenses and clearcoated them. I build headlight detail by gluing aluminium parts from wrist - watches to represent headlight bezels.
  13. 2015 Mustang - Revell Build and Play

  14. Just your basic build and play- kit with some extra: As always, questions and comments are welcomed. Thanks for watching!
  15. Cannonball Run 2015 " The Sleeperball"

    I am still in allthough the life has got very effectively on the way. Now it's the time to continue building the CMC Motorhome. The long brake has served well the building process: I have now a clear vision of the finished model. Just wait and see...
