  1. Thank you It's Tamiya champagne gold
  2. Started this one in September, it's finally done! Grtz Cor
  3. This is awesome! I will dream about this lovely little ride Perfect execution
  4. Thanks to all of you guys Nick: I don't know if you can call it chrome, but yes the helmet comes plated I removed it for aesthetic reasons. And besides, the real Red Baron's helmet isn't in chrome, but (flat) aluminium
  5. Thanks everyone. If you want to build one, just do it The kit isn't as far as bad as you would expect. The kit comes with 2 imo terrible, out of scale spandau. I threw them away and scratchbuilt one myself on the passenger side. I also made some kind of 'steering' for the spandau in the interior, but it's barely visible on the pictures. The grill is opened and I made a new intake with 3 pieces of tank munition
  6. Great color choice, fantastic minimal build. It doesn't need more than this
  7. This thing is wild! Love your work Ira and always will, but this one is awesome
  8. Just finished the Monogram kit of Tom Daniel's Red Baron. Scratchbuilt some parts but not that many. It was a fun build and the kit wasn't as bad as I expected. Hope you guys like it
  9. Thanks to all of you guys for the nice comments For those of you who think about making a dio, just go for it In my opinion there are way too few in the car scene. It's a lot of fun, quite cheap and isn't as hard as it looks. I loved it so much that I started another (very small) one today with Tom Daniel's Red Baron
  10. Thank you guys It is a Fujimi indeed. The one with the black mini on the boxart
  11. I recently finished my very first diorama and I enjoyed it sooo much. I'll definitely make more diorama's. Beside that this is my first weathered/rusty model and the first time I used an airbrush. Well it was quite an experience and I loved everything about it The pictures of the finished dio
  12. Kevin, thanks for the links. It has some good basic information Wayne, thanks for the website but I had already found that one. Before I posted my question I googled 'drag racing book', but there are soooo many of them. It's pretty difficult to just choose one. I hoped that someone could recommend one, or two, or more Cor
  13. Does anybody know a good book or website about drag racing cars? As far as I know, this type of racing doens't exist in Belgium but I'm starting to like it. So I'm looking for a book or website with information and references for a newbie (car specifications, the different types of cars ... ) since I don't know anything about it. Any suggestions? Grtz Cor
  14. I cannot say. There are quite a lot of kits here in Europe that had the wrong tires, they put some F1 tires in it instead. My kit was one of them. Cor
  15. Thank you guys. Sorry for the late reply but I had exams and had to study Hey Chris. Yes I cut it out and scratched the other parts. It wasn't an easy job but from a distance it looks good And no photo's of the engine, sorry. Something went wrong and I am not too happy with it. I prefer to leave it where it's supposed to be, under a closed hood Cor
  16. Thank you for the comments guys Thank you, but I have to admit that it wasn't my idea. I saw someone else do it. The wheels are from Mr Model indeed. Very good wheels, not so realistic rims unfortunately. As you can see, they are a bit thin but I don't mind Yes Bob, it is Revell Germany There is also a Fujimi (a bit more expensive here in EU) but it hasn't got opening doors. Cor
  17. It is finished, finally Cor
  18. This is going to be interesting, again. I'll sit down and enjoy the show
  19. The wood is indeed very well done. But I wouldn't have left the exhaust in white. Excellent work on this nice little buggy. I just can't wait for this thing to arrive in Europe Cor
  20. WOW One of the most beautifull 49 Merc I've ever seen, and there are LOTS of them. The color is spot on, you nailed it
  21. Impressive and clean! You've done a great work on this one
  22. Thank you guys Doctor: What you see is what you get The final color is white as in the pictures above The rims are painted black and the interior is in it's place. Next time, I will be able to post a finished model I'll have to redo the carbon on the lip here Cor
  23. Thank you guys. It is a pretty nice kit. Everything fits perfectly and is well detailed Paul, much of the PE-set is unnecessary in my opinion. In only use a couple of things such as the grills and stuff on the body. For the other parts, I think the plastic pieces are often more realistic than those flat pe parts Here is the finished interior Grtz Cor
