    Excellent work, the pictures are much better on instagram. Hope you don't mind if I borrow the colour scheme for the i8 that's been sitting in my stash for a couple of years!
  2. Cheers Dennis, I used Tamiya PS49 Sky Blue Anodised Aluminium.

  4. Terrific work Brian and a fitting tribute to Ed.
  5. Here's my take on the custom version supplied in the 2 in 1 issue. Built OOB with the exception of Pegasus wheels/tyres and plug wires. The body was painted Tamiya Gloss Alumnium, followed by clear pink and then two shades of metallic blue. A couple of light coats of their PS53 Lame Flake followed by TS13 Gloss finish it off. Thanks for looking.
  6. Excellent work Guy! Looks great!
  7. Having been a victim of Photobucket, I simply upload directly from my laptop by clicking on the 'choose files' option when creating a post. No need to use a hosting service now that the board has unlimited storage.
  8. I've been using TS26 for many years and never noticed any yellowing. Some kits were painted over seven years ago. It dries with a beautiful shine so that a clearcoat isn't necessary, reducing the risk of yellowing. Hope this helps
  9. Thanks guys. No real issues, main problem was fitting the windshield. I've built the coupe previously and also the convertible without any dramas.
  10. This is the Goodguys version, built OOB apart from plug wiring. Paint is Tamiya Pearl Yellow with Testor's Flame Red interior. Thanks for looking.
  11. Excellent work for a first build! May I suggest a dull coat to reduce the shine on the seats?
  12. Looking great so far Jonathan, thanks for the heads up about the issues. Will try to remember them when my kit is finally available from HLJ. You'll probably have yours finished by then...
  13. This is a quick build to practice a paint sceme - an expensive equivalent of the plastic spoon test! Built curbside with plastic tube axles and Fujimi wire wheels. The body was painted Tamiya Pearl White, then masked. Tamiya Silver and Light Gunmetal were then applied randomly, followed by Duplicolour Metalcast clear green and blue, also applied haphazardly, before unmasking and clearcoating with Tamiya Pearl Clear. Thanks for looking.

    911 GT1

    Looking great Ian, can't wait to see it at the weekend!
  15. Nice clean build, Jim, great looking flames.
  16. Great work, very realistic finishes.
  17. It was discussed here http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/125378-scam-bay-listings/
  18. He was a regular contributor to the other mag and an amazing replica stock builder. My favourite build of his is this 'Cuda concept from the late 90's - if only this had been built by Chrysler alongside the new Challenger.
  19. This is the Fujimi kit from a few years ago, built OOB using the supplied photoetch and Studio 27 decals. Paint is Tamiya Pure White and Gloss Black. Had to build this before the new GT3 is issued by Tamiya.
