Scale I Build

Found 9 results

  1. After a 10 year hiatus, I started building again this year. I am putting this up to get some motivation to stay on target, any suggestion welcome. I am starting with 2007 Revell version of 1932 "big duce". I have combined my love of hot rods and ww2 airplanes, I have seen some on the net and thought I do my interpretation, and try to look a little deferent then the others. This is going to take some time, but I have to finish this one or the wife will kill me, this one is pricy. ( I have a lot half fished kits in the closet ,over the years) So I am building it based on a p-51 mustang " Rebel Queen" flown by four time ace Fred Glover. I building it as if he or his mechanic built it after the war in 1947. It will have shinny paint and some chrome, as if it was going to be a show car or what they fantasized what the p-51 could of looked like if not in war. Channeled body, laid back wind screen, Fighter gages, bomber seats, joystick handle shifter and other goody's. Wish me luck. Laz The first pic, the plane. The second, the nose art with Crew Chief S/Sgt. John E. Wilson The third, is Major Frederick W. Glover. The forth, is the car I started with for photo shop. The fifth, is final rendering.

    This is my dads kit that he has neglected for a while, now me and him are going to finish it. Any bad color choices you can blame on him.
  3. Hello everyone and merry Christmas! I'm back with another engine model, some might say that this one is two cylinders short of being a real engine... It's from a Porsche 911 Carrera, around '70, and of course it's an air-cooled flat six. There were no Marushin parts involved (did you see what those cost now? WOW!), it's all scratchbuilt. The bigger parts were 3d printed on an Objet/Stratasys and the smaller ones on my Asiga, as you can see in the stepping. I sandblasted the Objet parts, their rough surface looks a bit like sandcast metal, and on the Asiga parts (like the linkage) I did no finish at all, just painting. Primer ist flat black AutoK spraycan (turns out semi-gloss, see the hood), paint is mostly Alclad (I love their dull alu) and some Citadel for details. I'm especially proud of the yellow anodized parts and the sandcast look on the fan! Thanks for looking, and have a nice holiday!
  4. Rerelease that hasn't been around in 40 years. Nice chrome plating, 6 sprues of chrome. Huge 1/8th scale, 3+ inch branded tires. New decals. https://youtu.be/0FSsCQjQf7Q
  5. Hello everyone, here is the second member of my Shelby gang: The 1969 Ford GT40 Mk1. Since no one has managed to make a decent 1/8 kit of this famous and beautiful racer I had to build him from scratch, as usual. I used the 1/18 Rodriguez Gulf car from Spark as template. As with my other cars I made the body from polyurethane block material, copied it via silicone mould and carved the cockpit out. The roof was made from glass-fibrereinforced epoxy and the small parts are cast off - 3d printed parts. It's curbside, nothing can be opened, the wheels turn and can be steered though. The engine is scratchbuilt too, but you can buy a kit that used my engine as prototype on www.fein-design-modell.de see here too http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/106153-18-scale-ultra-detail-gt40-engine/ If anyone who reads this has an idea where to get chassis plans of this car I'd be really, really thankful for a hint. I'd like to build a full model since I already got the engine done too, but I won't build stuff like the suspension without proper plans. Thank you for looking, comments and questions are welcome!
  6. I can't stop looking at this. Just released a couple days ago, limited to 40 pieces. OH MY GOD! http://fein-design-modell.de/18-gt40-motor/
  7. Well my E Bay purchase of the 1/8 Pocher Alfa is here and unpacked...such as it is. It is a nightmare of loose screws (I have a few of those too!), poor modelling and disrespect for a beautiful model. Kind of harsh, but it is pretty sad....and kind of a cool challenge to bring this back to life So here are the pics comparison to 1/16 MG TC kit Fenders with a paint pot for size Body comparisons, lots of black overspray on the Pocher Seats and body Engine and some body parts. Bag of wonders Ok that is it for now. Dinner time, got to ponder this mess for a bit First priority is to get a big container for everything and start doing inventory
  8. Anyone have this kit? Are the tires plastic? 2 piece vinyl? Hows the tool? Pics. ? The Hobby Shop here has a couple of these and I'm thinking about getting one. They didn't want to open one up so I could check it out. I can understand that. I had the original release at one time- If I remember right it had plastic tires the same color as the rest of the kit. Recent builds= 1/8 deuce, 1/12 Fiat , 1/16 Dukes, Raminator I can trade info -
  9. HereĀ“s one more of a Jaguar E-Type 1962 scale 1/8 monogram. I build the model with my son Ben in 2 weeks, he help me a lot! I see in the future a good modeler! Greetings Ben and Karsten
