Scale I Build

  1. Hi. Gradually making my way through this build by Aoshima. Got carried away with the carbon fiber so it's taking a while. But fun, challenging kit.
  2. Hi. I'm building this BMW M3 DTM and using some aftermarket bits to reflect the Agusto Farfus car and livery. The paint is Tamiya Cobalt Green which, after primer, went on so easily. Really a pleasure to work with. Here is my question to this group. I can find exterior shots of the DTM BMW i'm building, but I can't find ANY references for the engine and engine bay. Anyone have any ideas on that? Thanks and I'll post more pictures as I get further into it.
  3. Hi. Here's my completed BMW. You can see the build progress in WIP.. This seemed like a walk in the park at first, but some fitment problems between the chassis, tub and body required a lot of fiddling. And it's one of those kits where the engine pushes up against the hood. So not as easy as I thought. The decals are from Racing 43 - really like the livery on this one.
  4. This was a big reclamation project. I think I built this 15 - 20 years ago, and the clear coat on it had yellowed. Looked ugly. So I striped it, took it apart, applied some aftermarket bits and put it back together again. Took f o r e v e r. I have another I 'm going to build as a Pike's Peak version, but think I'll try something easier next.

    Hi. I started working on my second Hudson. I've been experimenting with colored, clear overcoats. For the new Hudson, I used Testor's one-stage lacquer and then sprayed Tamiya Clear Red. The result came out pretty good. Then for the hood, Tamiya Gunmetal with a coat of Tamiya Smoke on top. Again, I liked the results. My biggest challenge with this is the bare metal foil. I thought I had sanded the trim smooth but after applying the foil, I could still see some particles poking out of the trim. Aaargh!! Kind of defeats the purpose of having a nice paint job. I think my next step will be to re-apply the foil after I clean up the surface a little better. Always something to learn. I included a couple of photos of the first Hudson too.
  6. Not my usual subject for modeling, but enjoyed the build.
  7. Had fun with this model and loved the graphics.
  8. Hi. Here's work in progress on Tamiya's Mazda. Seems like it's taking forever, but now that the engine is in pretty good shape, the rest of it should go quick.
  9. Hi. Here's the Moebius '61 Pontiac Ventura. Love the wheels on this thing. I broke the windshield trying to get it to fit, but Moebius customer service was great. They sent me a new one quickly.

    Dome Zero

    Hi. Just finished the Dome Zero racer by Fujimi. Thanks to MCM Ohana Dale Beaver who posted some pictures way back and served as an inspiration for some of the detail work. A difficult build - but they all seem difficult lately!
  11. I like to look for unusual models, like Fujima's Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 race car. Unfortunately, it's a curbside. So i took the engine from the Tamiya skyline and transplanted it. Here's the result: Then there is the Esci Ertl Ford Escort RS1800. It's a clear body kit. The tooling was not so great. But, I painted it white and acquired some Rothman livery decals. Interesting model...tough to build.

  13. Hi..long time modeler, first time posting. Used to hang around George Barris' shop as a kid in North Hollywood, been building models ever since - with some hiatus of course. Looking forward to joining the forum. I attached a couple of photos for reference. I have a specific question about decals, but will post that to the appropriate board. Regards, Doug Wintz
