Scale I Build

  1. Fantastic kit of an extraordinary car... bestest, M.
  2. I haven't posted here in a while as i have many builds on the bench and other things happening. Anyway i have finished this one off, basicly stock except i painted the rims black and used a custom mixed colour for the exterior. Let me know what you think.
  3. Howdy, New here. See http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=83804 Had this one partially complete in the box so decided to finish it in Yellow. Just ordered some ScaleFinishes paints. Never used a basecoat/clear method. I've always used either airbrushed enamel gloss paints (testors MM) or Tamiya TS Sprays to do my cars. Built a new paint booth to replace my old dirty one... Made from leftover 3/4 Melamine and a corrugated plastic backing and baffle. Fan is a 545cfm Dayton blower. I just open the window and trap it in the window when I paint. Haven't even used this one yet. My old one was scraps of decking boards. The white interior makes things much brighter and the baffle should control air flow much better. Never done flocking before. First attempt...kinda so so.... I'll have to practice this some more Parts and pieces The dash needs some touch up. Body will be Ferrari 102 Giallo when it's all done.
  4. Hi everyone! Just signed up to the site, figured it'd be handy to. I'm Tomo, I have a passion for cars and modelling. I'm not long turned 15, I'm from Armagh in Northern Ireland and I've been modelling for around a year, give or take a few months. I've learned a lot, but there's still so much for me to learn, so I'm hoping this site will help me get better with the help of you guys! I love muscle cars, Japanese cars, European cars, well, all cars really. I build whatever I see and takes my fancy. I These are a few of my models, I'll post some now so you guys have an idea of what to expect.. it's really not much. I'll be asking for your opinions and help a lot so I can learn! Anyway. On to the models. I'll give a brief sentence about each one. "Immy 2 & 3" - 1998/9 Subaru Impreza WRC/ This is the last model I finished in 2012 (the '99) beside her sister, which I finished earlier in the year. First time attempting snow weathering. 1988 Sauber Mercedes C9 - This was my first attempt at making seatbelts, doing wiring on an engine and bare metal foil. I didn't like the AEG livery this kit came with, I fancied the silver one but couldn't get my hands on one, so I did my own thing. Toyota GT86 - I had decided that, since I'll never own one of these, and I'm quite fond of them, I'll do a model. I wasn't going to due to the price of the thing, but I bit the bullet and I'm glad I did. This is Tamiya's. Fiat 500 "Ferrari Fan" - Decided to weather this slightly. The kit annoyed me, but it's not a bad kit. '70 Plymouth Superbird - This was my first muscle car kit. I've always loved Superbirds, and I was really proud of this one. These are just a few of my models, I look forward to being on here and seeing what you guys have to say and seeing all your lovely works! Cheers! - Tomo
  5. Fresh out from my third build (A Tamiya 1/24 1989 Sauber Mercedes C9), I'm taking on a double build project for a couple 1982 Renault 5 Turbo Rally... Making it a double because I'm giving one to a good friend of mine in South America (Where this particular model was very popular even as a street car), so we will make these build # 4 and # 5. Found a few reference photos... The kits... Sanding and Priming... Thank you for reading.
  6. Fresh out of a very mediocre build I have decided to stop whining about being new to the hobby or the lack of abilities to give a shot to a new project... Always been a Sports Car fanatic so I have picked a Le Mans model, the 1989 Sauber Mercedes C9 Looked around for the specific model shown above (Tamiya SKU 24091), but it looks like is a vintage model that was replaced with the 1988 AEC Olympia Sauber (Tamiya SKU 24310), so I ended up purchasing it instead with the hope that I could find the decals while I build it. Ah!!! Yes, in case you are wondering... I always buy two sets (Some times three) IOI Thank you for reading.
  7. Hi this is the first time I have post a build. This is the Tamiya Ferrari Enzo 1/12 scale
  8. I thought I would post it here to alert anyone who may be interested. HLJ announced Tamiya is doing a full kit of their 1/12 Porsche Carrera GT ...looks like this may be even better than the Enzo http://www.hlj.com/product/TAM12050 ...
  9. Sorry, I've been away from the hobby for a few years taking care of some personal stuff. Don't you hate when life gets in the way of the hobby? Anyway, I decided to jump back in with a three bike display of Ben Spies' milestones for Yamaha. His first MotoGP race on one, his first podium and his first victory. I also wanted to do some detail work but only what will be seen with the bodywork in place. This build has been going on for a few months now so bare with me as I insert the updates. It will kind of look like I'm some kind of speed demon but a lot is complete. So, to get started... Here is a selection of aftermarket parts and two of the three kits to be used. Each bike will have a different muffler with different heat traces I also had to kitbash one set of wheels to get the 2011 bike correct. I drew up the pattern in AutoCAD then transfered the image to ABS plastic with thinner on the copy paper. After that it was all cutting, grinding, gluing and putty work. More pictures tomorrow. Lunch break here is over.
  10. Hallo buddies and all fans of aircooled vehicles. Today i want to show you my first built old beetle ever. My brother and i work on this cars in 1:1 since 1992 and last year in august i built this one. Like my bulli "Horst", this one tells a story too and so he became a diorama with a small shoppingmal. What have i changed? - wiring engine and all cables a beetle has - two-tone paintjob and custom decals from a "Nailart studio" - front and rear hood lock - bamboo shelf under the dashboard - export bumpers with supports - as it must be - Seats soft cuddly - Interior Detail tricked, so that's fit to issue - Right mirror left out because he is not the same as the type of the left and "ugly" is - give him licenseplates Here we go with my favorite black/white pictures, my "Shoppingqueen - VW Käfer 1300" ...
