  1. Jet Rod Community Build

    Hello again! Your Rocketwagen looks nice and that second bug is also coming along nicely in a classic cruiser style. My jet rod 37 ragtop Chevy project has suffered from too little time to build these days but maybe some day.. I have began to think if those scratchbuild engines I made are too big for 37 ragtop so it might be possible to get a bigger car for this project.
  2. Porsche 911 GT3 Salt flats style

    Thanks! It was fun to build.
  3. So this is Tamiya GT3 kit that I build mainly in box stock style. Modifications include aluminium spun hubcaps that were make by a friend of mine and restyled rear wing. Idea was to create a slat flats racer- styled street legal sports car with local ( Finnish ) EU- plates. Color is Tamiya Blue Violet and decals are from different kits.

    I agree, those intakes are cool. Hopefully I´ll have some time next weekend to build my `37 ragtop

  7. Jet Rod Community Build

    I started schratching turbines for my '37: I used amt dagmars, amt 63 Corvette wheels, thimbles, some promo wheels with drilled out centers, white plastic tubing from childrens pen and star wars battle droid thing afterburner units. Lots of protective metal plating to be added but the basic stucture of engines is now there.

    Main parts for 37 chevy convertible engines have been found! Parts from star wars droid tri fighter engines, 63 Corvette wheels, some thimbles and some plastic tubing....

    Nice looking scratchbuild turbines on rocketwagen.. I will be using that AMT 37 Chevy ragtop then and it will be equipped with a sophisticated anti- gravitation device + powerful turbines. It will take a while for me to start this build though bacause I have to finish my current model project first.
  10. Jet Rod Community Build

    OK I have started searching a decent kit to start my Jet Rod build. So far have found only an AMT 37 Chevy Convertible model box including only body parts and interior bucket but I'd rather not use it because I don't want to copy your 37 Coupe build.

    Sir! Your Jetrods are simply stunning! They are pieces of great modelbuilding art and truly inpirational models. I agree that jetpunk etc. Would make an interesting community build.
  12. 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!
  13. 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:
  14. 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:
  15. 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:
