  1. Honda Hawk GT

    started with an tamiya RC30 kit, heavily used my parts box and scratch built all the rest. engine was cut into pieces to make slimmer (V4 --> V2) and cylinder angle was reduced from 90 to (almost) 52 degrees. also cylinders were made taller. frame was modified for engine mounting points. rims where cut apart to add different spokes. tank was sectioned to become slimmer. rear cowling was cut apart to make new rear and seat, which was then covered with a piece of leather. front fender is a modified GPZ rear fender. exhaust headers made from RC30, muffler and rear shock are scratch built. many other bits are also scratch built like handlebars, mirrors, clocks (7 different pieces), and so on, and so on. custom printed decals. only parts used as shown in the assembly guide: swingarm-axle and spark plug connectors. rear wheel nut was also not modified, but was used in the scratch built rear shock absorber. 3 1/2 months of work with roughly estimated 300+ hours overall.

  4. Ducati 916 Tamiya 1/12

    Hello friends I set out to show you one of the most beautiful motorcycles in history. Logically it had to be Italian, it's the Ducati 916. Its aesthetics marked with a multi-tubular chassis, a mono arm swingarm and double exhaust outlet under the tail was a novelty in its release to the market. The model is Tamiya brand 1/12 scale, is detailed inside because its fairing is removable. https://youtu.be/2HoNIGQRWxM Greetings and I hope you like it
  5. 1/12 Tamiya 312T

    My 1/12 scale Tamiya 312T so far. Purchased the SMS photo etch set. Scratch built the steering rack.
  6. Hi everybody, I'm Erik, 49 yrs old and I live in the Netherlands. Originally -and still- very much into aviation and aviation modelling, I'm also interested in modelling military vehicles, ships in 1/350 and motorcycles in 1/6 and 1/12, as well as F1 in 1/12 and 1/20. I also like riding my 1/1 BMW R1200 GS as well as being tagged along by my wife who loves scuba-diving. We have the privilege of having two sons who both also love scale modelling as well as scuba diving! On top of that, my youngest is keen to accompany me on my GS! The drawback of my wide modelling interests are seen in my productivity; I'm a bit impulsive and switch (too) easily between projects... I'll do my best to share those motorbike and F1 builds with you as and when I'm working on them! The forumname is something of a tribute to my late father who was an F-104G Starfighter pilot in the Royal Netherlands Air Force. Cheers, Erik.

  8. '74 Ferrari 312T F1 Niki Lauda

    On the bench is my first "Full" build 1/12 Tamiya Ferrari 312T. Very challenging, but a lot of fun. I decided to pull some real photos and try to customize it by adding as many electrical wires and connectors as possible (with my amateur skill) to make it look as real as possible. I also decided to make my own racing seat belt harness but using cloth surgical tape and folding it and painting it. I found some parts to make it also look as real as possible, but still working on it. Hope you guys like the detail.
  9. Testors 1:12 Lamborghini Countach

    A tale of sadness yet hope. A long time ago, when I just had started to build model cars I bought this kit and...well, trashed it. Now almost 5 years its time to do it right! I found it today in my storage! everything is here except the instructions, first off, stripping the horrible rattle can paint job! and brushed on interior work!
  10. 1/12 camaro (old version)

    I had some issues with this build, luckily I had a little help from hawk 312, as im sure you know his are some of the best around so I had some pretty good tips, i liked the color it was molded in so I actually have no paint on it, just a ton of polish and wax. The pics dont really show the finish but in person you could never tell it wasn't painted and cleared. I also got the idea of the window sticker from hawk, thanks man. I cant wait to start the build of the new foose I got. This one will get the full paint and polish treatment.
  11. Just got mine today....I've been waiting to build a new version of this car, I've got a few good builds on the old kit but looking forward to a brand new sealed box. No more missing this piece or broken this and that I get when I buy the old kits on eBay.
  12. Found this on the Revell store site. Dec 2013 ? Release Merry Christmas LOL
  13. Tamiya 1/12 Ferrari Enzo

  14. Post your 1:12 scale '57 Bel Airs!

    As the title states, post your built Revell-o-gram 1/12 scale '57 Bel Airs. Since many threads that I've seen have pictures that don't exist anymore, I figured it would be cool for everyone to post 'em up here. Here's mine as of now (though I plan on rebuilding it this summer):
