Scale I Build

  1. Resurrecting a project started in January 2003, based on the very nice Hasegawa VW Microbus Type 2 kit. I had left over parts from building a Fujimi Porsche 911 Slantnose Turbo kit-bashed with the Tamiya 911 Speedster. Made it this far without taking digital pictures of the process, so the run-down of what was done: Bus: Opened all doors, front doors are suicide with doubled-acting wire hinges. Made new panels using epoxy putty, which warped the doors so need to fix that. Side doors are also double-acting wire hinges. I'm reconsidering the hinges since I have discovered fusee chain
  2. A pair of the finest Japanese sports cars -- either one you'd love to own, but only one costs the best part of a million dollars. Both excellent-looking curbside Hasegawa kits. Tamiya spray for the bodies: Racing White and Maroon (actually chestnut brown...) They're quite hard to photograph together, since the camera likes to assume that the Toyota is white (it's actually pale cream), and exposing for both dark brown and almost white in the same image is taxing, especially in artificial light. Wheels in Zero Paints graphite grey with bright silver highlights. The tyre tread diameter
  3. This is Hasegawa's recent re-release of their older 944 turbo kit. I didn't like the livery it came with, and I love how some Porsche cup cars often race in white lacking any sort of large livery and stay street legal with license plates. Turbo cup had numerous upgrades over stock 951 (extensive weight savings, larger turbo, updated suspension and brakes, etc) and I heard that 944 Turbo cup was also very popular in Canada and it even aired live on TV back then. Kit pros: - proportion of body is very accurate - realistic engine and suspension - photo etched seat belts included
  4. This is the Hasegawa boxing of Monogram/s 1/24 kit, with additional white metal parts by Fine Molds. First up, the body in Zero Paints Guardsman Blue, with Zero 2K clear coat. This is as she came out of the paint shop. There are a couple of minor blemishes to polish out, but other than that I don't plan on doing any more "added shininess" Here's a few of the engine in progress, to compare and contrast the original and Fine Molds parts: And this young lady will be popping in from time to time in this thread. She's a Master Box figure, from their new "Pin-Up" series: Loads
  5. This week I will be starting to build my Lamborghini Miura. This photo shows how it will look when its done.....hope you enjoy!
  6. I thought I would share my build process of the Revell of Germany Lancia Stratos WRC kit. I am fairly certain this is a reboxed Hasegawa kit. When I searched for reviews of this kit I found one common theme; good luck getting the body over the chassis. It is true, but more on that later. This kit has been in my stash for years and to be honest I'm not sure what caused my to pull it out and build it. I guess it was the challenge of doing all of those decals! This is a box stock build. I did not want to add any aftermarket parts or do any scratch building. The model is already finish
  7. I bought this kit from ebay a while ago, it's original decals are included, but they are crackled. the kit came with a set of B*H decals for the Longhurst version, and a resin piece for the rear spoiler I've already got the paints from zero, I'm going for Camel Yellow & Zero Gloss white, i'll do the body first!
  8. This is a special build, this make of car was the first I owned and learnt to drive in. Was so happy when I seen Hasegawa release the kit and even happier when I started to build it, bought back so many fun memories of the journeys and good times I had in that car. Paint is Tamiya TS-47 chrome yellow. The yellow squares with letter L in the front and rear windows are what we call L plates, meaning Learner driver and must be displayed by law for the first six months after obtaining the Learners permit/license and must be accompanied at all times with a pas

    Honda F1

    The last one I'll get finished this year, still have a couple on the bench. I really enjoyed building this, the engine was a little fidgety with the intake horns and drilling out the tailpipes was an adventure. The kit came with real metal springs for the rear suspension. Although it looks frail it is actually pretty rugged. I painted the rising sun as I was afraid the supplied decal wouldn't conform. All in all I'm pretty pleased with it. Honda's first F1 victory in 1965 at the Mexican GP. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  10. One of the new kits announced for Q4 and as part of the All Japan Hobby show is from Hasegawa, we are going to get to build the Nissan Bluebird SSS ATTESA limited (U12), due out in late Dec, no doubt we should have our first look at the kit at the hobby show in just about a months time. Pricing, direct from Japan its gonna around $25 US
  11. One of Hasegawa's new tools for 2019, and first of a few variations , its the Toyota Starlet EP71 TurboS (3dr) Late Type
  12. Submitted for your pleasure, another project I have on the bench. I’ve always loved the 956/962 so it was cool to snag this while on a business trip in upstate New York. I had originally painted it Tamiya Yellow but the coverage was poor and runny. I sanded and reshot it with Tamiya Camel Yellow. It’s better. Not perfect. Oh yellow, thou art a heartless color.
  13. Starting a few today. The bath is the first step.
  14. I built this about 20 years ago, or thereabouts. It's one of those Hasegawa kits of 1965 American cars. I picked up a couple of that series on closeout, and figured they'd make fun slammers. I also built an Impala Stock Car, even though I've never seen any that ran in NASCAR. I digress. I used some Evergreen strip and the "fogging" method to make the vinyl top. The spotlights are from the parts box. Lakes pipes are aluminum tube. I don't recall where the wheels and tires are from, other than the parts bin. I used some little, blue model RR "lights" for the Blue Dots. Clearly, I lowered the sus
  15. Hello everyone! Here is my latest finished model. Its Hasegawa BMW 2002 tii. I had bad luck with painting it, and after 2 times of stripping the paint, i started to make some patina look, and leave my show room clean and shiny plans for some other project. I used lot of detailing parts from differend aftermarket shops like Scaleproduction and High light model studio. I also made some scrach building like inner door panel for driver side has only "skeleton" left with handles. Tiger seats are hand painted with Tamiya colors. Roof rack is from Gunze Sagnyos Karmann Ghia, and i made those woo
  16. In part of the 57th All Japan Model &Hobby show coverage, here is the dedicated thread for the BMW 2002 Turbo kit, which is the follow up to the tii from Hasegawa Models, once the show starts, photos of the display model will be posted, till then. Release date is set of Oct, pricing is going to be in 2500 Yen range( $22-$26 US ), you can pre order now. First look at the it from the Hobby Show
  17. Hello friends Although the scale 1/72 does not usually work, with this model I had no choice because of lack of space thanks to its actual size. This German mortar attracted my attention when I saw it and I decided to do it. The hasegawa kit comes quite well and its size could be worth it. https://youtu.be/FKrT3_sobfY Greetings and I hope you like it
  18. Hello guys, here my WIP Stratos Hasegawa.

    Started on the 23rd, one of two quick'n easy 'Holiday Builds', simply because I can ! Hasegawa's still excellent Miura, built as it comes from the box with no additions. WiP pics here: Bodyshell is good old Humbrol enamels mixed by eye, interior is also my own mixes using Tamiya acrylics. Please feel free to make any comments, criticism or ask any any questions - yes I've fixed the (French) license plate since I took the photos. Stay tuned friends and all the very best for 2018. Ian.
  21. So you've seen that my BIG car project for the New Year is a Revell C5-R, but alongside that I'm doing two quick & fun builds over the holidays just because I can !!. First one is the still excellent Hasegawa Lamborghini Miura.... to mis-quote Jeremy Clarkson: "...possibly the most beautiful looking car... in the world" Straight-off I sanded & polished the seam lines away, then hit it with two coats of Tamiya fine white primer to calm-down that shouty red plastic in comes in. Hopefully at the end of the project it will look a LOT like th
  22. Good friends Here I bring you one of my first dioramas that I made several years ago. The main model is the F-16C Fighter Fighting Falcon which is being reviewed by operators. The whole set is made to 1/48 scale of the Hasegawa brand. To make this representation I wanted to include a set of missiles and another of track technicians. https://youtu.be/i0uWAmTss2c Greetings and I hope you like it
  23. Coming this summer from from Hasegawa is the late type version of the Sunny, price is in the mid $20 (depending on exchange rate) http://www.hlj.com/product/HSG20275 http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10384172
  24. Well, she's finally done! And finally a couple shot with a different lens that should be a better approximation of what a human eye sees looking at one of these: A really nice base kit, much enhanced by the Fine Molds white metal parts (plus you end up with a spare 427 engine!) bestest, M.
