  1. Here's an original Airfix 1/24 Aston Martin DB6 that I was fortunate to purchase from a late friend's collection. Painted Tamiya Metallic Red over their red oxide primer, the kit doesn't look too bad considering its age. Unfortunately one wheel was missing, so I used some Tamiya Jaguar wheels and tyres donated by another mate to enable me to finish the build. Big sink holes on some bumpers so these were filled and covered with BMF.
  2. The other sprue is from the Revell 1930 Model A Coupe.
  3. This is a Revell 1/24 Ford GT, built as a replica of the car raced at this year's Le Mans. Zero paint and Keating Motorsport decals were obtained from Slotfabrik. It's a pity the camera doesn't do the purple pearl justice. The kit comes with sink marks instead of rear view mirrors so I cut some out of plastic sheet and covered them with BMF.
  4. Looks like the Jimmy Flintstone version.
  5. This is the Tamiya 1/24 Opel Calibra from the 1994 DTM season, driven by Keke Rosburg. Superb fit and engineering we expect from Tamiya, hard to believe they were achieving this so long ago. Even the 25 year old decals went down beautifully, although the large door decals were challenging as they also covered the top part of the one-piece front. Paint is Tamiya White TS101 straight from the can.
  6. Many thanks for the article Tim, it gave me the courage to attempt my first ever roof chop and I was stoked with the result.

    Eleanor Mustang

    It's Nicholas Cage's car from the 2000 movie 'Gone in 60 Seconds', a remake of the original from 1974.
  8. Eleanor Mustang built from the Scale Production transkit and an AMT 1/25 Shelby GT350. The body is painted with Tamiya spraycans, Light Gunmetal with Metallic Black stripes.
  9. Cheers, I retired to here from Auckland, been here four years now and love it. Originally from the UK.
