  1. Mercedes 500SL Koenig

    Here is My Fujimi Mercedes 500SL Koenig. It was a pretty fun kit to build, but the interior lacked a TON of detail, which i had to fix.
  2. Hey, everyone!, its been a while since i've posted here, but the Reventon i finished a while ago is finally here....enjoy!
  3. Nissan Skyline GT-R (KPGC10)

    Built this awhile back, a fun kit to build. The kit. Lowered with aftermarket wheels, Other than that, its oob.
  4. Koenig Mercedes 500SL

    Hey, everyone!, i'm trying to see if I can get this VERY basic kit done in one month. I started it on March 1st, and I think I may be able to do it! My hardest challenge was to NOT fix everything, but pick and choose what I NEEDED to do. The interior tub was an embarracement. As you can see, all the white bits, are the things I needed to SB. The interior doors weren't even scribed!!!
  5. Fujimi 1/24 Lamborghini Gallardo

    Small detour from building a 1/8 Ferrari, this Lambo. Will be fairly straight OOB I am going to go Splash Lava Orange with it, here are my inspirations
  6. New from Fujimi Models, their FJ Cruiser kit, part of the their no paint and glue series, you get a few choices of the what color the body is molded in, White, Black and Yellow.
  7. Ferrari 288 GTO Spyder

    While waiting for things to dry on my Pagani build, I was thinking about how cool a 288 Roadster would look. Since my special kit No.9 had a screwed-up bonnet vent, I decided to use it as my test model. I discovered that all the kits I've had molded in the red plastic ALL had the same warped bonnet vents, so I decided to try the white plastic kit No.105, since a friend told me his was fine.....so I ordered two white ones, and they were both fine! What I learned here, is that if you don't want to use the PE vents.....which I don't, then you want NOTHING to do with the kits molded in red. Anyway, I will be playing around with this here and there in between builds.
  8. Ferrari F40 LM (sorta)

    The hard fought build of the F40 is done. I learned a lot of what not to do with PE parts (my first time). It’s not perfect but I’m happy overall. I gotta do another one of these, maybe yellow tho...
  9. Fujimi Lamborghini Veneno

    Hi everyone, For the first time in about a year I'm starting a new kit. This is also the first time I am posting on a forum, so keep that in mind. I got myself the full engine kit of the Veneno (very hard and expensive to come by in Germany) My hopes are maybe a few tips, a few people who like to stick around and maybe someone I can talk model stuff with My skills are rusty and never been a pro. The kit will be hand-printed...no spray cans or airbrush (no location)
  10. Starting this project that will be mildly super-detailed (like that’s a thing), but will definitely not go all out. Will be building this one just like on the box – presentation version. I have bunch of these kits, and will likely build some liveried versions in the future, so this will be a trial run for the kit. I will use a combination of Fujimi-provided and aftermarket photoetch on this one, CF decals, and other extra bits here and there. I bought a HD PE set for this one, but some of the parts are not accurate for the presentation version, so will use what was provided by Fujimi, especially for the front and rear mesh pieces. Fujimi fret provided in the kit: Hobby Design set: Started with the rear mesh, hoped to drill out the mesh piece itself leaving the frame to attach the PE piece to it: In reality, it turned out too fragile, and I broke it several times while handling, so scrapped this crazy idea. After test fitting the mesh, it appears that it won’t be needed anyway. Air outlets glued in place and seams filled: Since I removed the rear mesh, I also removed the pegs where the chassis plate is mounted in the back. I wanted to retain at least two in the front, so had to come up with the solution to keep them and cut the opening for the front mesh as well. Slightly cut the sides: And removed the front molded piece but left most of the mounting holes there: Can’t really see it from the front: Test-fit the mesh – still too tall – need to remove more: Now looks much better – tucked in nice and flush with the front spoiler: This is where I am with this one for now.
  11. Ferrari F40 LM

    As teased in a couple other posts, I’ve started an F40. It was my intention to hold off until I had completed some of the stuff going on, but I couldn’t resist. Sorry @Dann Tier, it’s red. Lol. I had an incident with my new drawer liners and had to sand and reshoot the rear valance.
  12. Porsche 911 (964) RS 3.8

    Hi folks, I'd like to start a WIP on this project. It's about this Fujimi kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/966180-fujimi-12450-porsche-911-carrera-3-8-rs Basically, I have started this kit already in May 2017. But gradually finding out about it's numerous shortcomings (more about that later), I put it aside for the time being. Some days ago, after finishing the Porsche 928 S, I opened the kit's box again and it clicked! So I decided to proceed with it. The first step I did last year already, is that I filled the panels of the sunroof. No Porsche RS ever came with a sunroof! I used styrene melted in glue for filling back then. I used this instead of regular filler because I heard that glue can help to prevent the appearance of ghostlines. Someday soon, we'll see if that's true... It does not look too nice but the surface is even and smooth as glass. There are quite a lot of aftermarket parts that I will use on this one. Nearly all of them are coming from Scale Production (SP), a German specialist exactly for these kind of things. Here are the parts: The 964 RS model comes with a different kind of rear bumper but the Fujimi kit has the regular Carrera one. So I cut that out and replaced it with a resin bumper part from SP: It took some sanding and filling with Plasti-Zap CA, but it worked out okay. The big rear wing has been fixed at this stage too: As can be seen, the wing needed filling as it's one part with the engine cover. On the lower side just aswell as the upper side: A little mock-up with the wing "board" fixed. I love that view! The Fujimi kit comes with molded-on door handles like this: Proxxon time! I also drilled 2 holes for the separate SP door handles to be fixed in later on: Like that: That's all for now. I hope you like my progress.
  13. Hi folks, this is a build I finished just this week. A rather easy side project to relax while taking a break from my lengthful work on the Rothman's Porsche 956. It's basically a simple curbside kit by Fujimi that was unnecessarily complicated by fitting issues on the front and rear body parts. It took quite some glueing, filling and sanding to make the body properly hold those parts. As a consequence, the original panel lines on those parts - the black ones which are characteristic of the 928 - got lost. I used thin stripes of black 3M laser plotter foil to re-created those lines. The rims originally included in the kit - those in the "telephone dial design" - have not been used because they looked somewhat chunky. And those rims have mainly been used on the series 1 Porsche 928, most of the 928 S had the so-called "Gullydeckel"-rims. So I used those wheels from the Fujimi 928 S4 kit instead. Btw, "Gullydeckel" is the German word for manhole cover and if you take a look at the following image of a German manhole cover, you will probably get the point. Now to some model images, hope you like them. A meet among brothers...
  14. Ok first of all, I think to myself, you can't do another Red Ferrari... So I thought, maybe a cool cruiser... So I started doodling on the engine,... Mr. RandyD came thru with a couple awesome distributors from HRM Beauties So with the engine well on it's way, I started doing some research,.... (opposite of "plan your build, and build your plan"),...sorry Ace,..( where are you? ) Then I found her Now this, is going to require some modifications, but I love the story,... Guy walks into a Ferrari dealership.. Sales man says,.."What can I help you with?".." Guy says, "I want a 365 GTB/4 Daytona, in RED" Sales man.."No problem, gonna take a year to get it,...they're handmade, yanow? !"Guy says, "No problem, I'll wait for perfection" ...And a deal is struck... Car comes in in like half the time and sales man starts turning it into a Competizione ....say it with me( that's 6 syllables folks) So he can race it before handing it over to the paying customer,..Whhaaaat! https://silodrome.com/ferrari-365-gtb4-daytona-competizione/ True story So now I had a plan... I kept working on the engine while I played with the body Started cutting up the front end ...and that's where we sit so far... Comments and critiques welcome Cheers
  15. Hi folks, some months ago I did this build of the Fujimi DeTomaso Pantera GTS. This is a pretty simple (curbside) kit, but rather new (2012) and well done by Fujimi. The only downside of the kit are the thickish, lense-like glass parts... Here we go, hope you like it.
  16. A bit of a pain to build, as I had to make my own interior door cards. not the best turn out of a model, but it will look good on the shelf. Finished in Tamiya Silver with 1K Zero topcoat - polished with Nuvous 3 part system. Comments welcome...
  17. Fujimi BMW 5 Series Schnitzer S5

    All, this was finished a few months ago, but I was quite annoyed at the fact that the AC Schnitzer decals fell apart when trying to apply, that i lost the heart to post it... I thought I'd take advantage of the sun today to post some pics. It is coated in Tamiya Silver base coat, BMW green touch up paint (filtered for large flakes) and clear coated with 1K Zero paints without any polish. the kit is basic, but builds up ok, there is a build thread on this site too. the interior is turquoise, but doesn't suit the car. If I was to do this again, the interior would be black, white or cream. All the decals were shot on this kit, they looked OK, but they disintegrated when trying to apply. Comments and criticisms welcome!
  18. Hi!, this is my Fujimi Ferrari F40LM. I wanted to change it to a barely street legal car, so I cut-off the front defuser, detailed the headlamp assemblies with indicators, filled-in the rocker vents, SB a stock wing, and ditched the LM wheels and tyres, for a set of Tamiya stock ones. The engine bay is detailed, as is the interior, with an added seat.
  19. RX7 3 kit combo

    Hi All, I finished this kit over the weekend, after several weeks, of slow progress. I am really pleased with how it came out. The body is from the Aoshima RX7 Spirit R kit, engine and chassis are from the tamiya kit, and the aero bits are from a fujimi kit. I discovered along the way that even though they are all the same car, and scale, each brand has modeled the car slightly differently, and so not all the parts played together all that nicely. A lot of filling and sanding had to happen to the bonnet, and chassis to make it work with the aoshima body. I didnt get around to doing a WIP on this build, Thanks for looking Nathan
  20. Mercedes 500SL

    Starting this as well today. @Snake45 gave me some good advice on the crushed a-pillar. Since it turned out acceptable, we’ll get to building. I’ve never seen so much extra plastic
  21. This is my Fujimi Enthusiast Porsche 911 Turbo. Its totally detailed, and since NONE of these Enthusiast Porsches has hinges for their hoods, I had to SB my own.
  22. Fujimi S14 Nissan Silvia

    This model was completed relatively recently, it's probably the cleanest model I've created. It helps that there was no paint job on the body to screw up, since the white plastic it came in was the color I wanted. It could've used some small details like the black inside the grille and more interior detail. But at least I was able to paint the brake calipers red like a true Japanese car enthusiast (which aren't very easy to see, unfortunately). The worst part about this build is the reverse lights, which are very difficult to make neat if you're not great at painting, like I am. And like a lot of these Japanese kits, the hood isn't removable and there's not a complete engine, which is a shame. And yes, I put the Autech decal on the back even though I used the standard body kit, I didn't realize at the time what that sticker meant. Anyway, thanks for looking and tell me what you think.
  23. Porsche 911 Carrera 2

    Hello, here is my latest finished build, and at same time my first finished Porsche model ever!" Its nice Fujimi kit and goes together well. I got bit weathering accidently cause i did mess up with panel lines. I think it still looks cool.. I hope you like it.. I used Aoshima BBS wheels and printed finnish licence plates, and also german flag. Rest is out ot box.. I went with bit retrolook with doing chrome foiling on window mouldings etc... They should be black..
  24. Porsche 911 Carrera

    Here is my Porsche project.. Color is Ivory from Maston colors, its rattlecan spray paintjob.. Chassis is done, interior is almost there and body is awaiting for detailing, decals and first of all polishing. Wheels are from Aoshima.. 17 inch, BBS Type RG
  25. Hey, everyone!, This is my Fujimi Lamborghini Reventon build......obviously...lol, Even though its only a curbside, I will be detailing the interior to make it look like the real car, since things are missing, or not done right. I even have a technique that replicates Lamborghinis special leather called; Alcantara. I will also show how I take a one-piece engine, and still make it look convincingly real. Hope you enjoy!
