Scale I Build

  1. These came in the mail today, a WIX NAPA version of the 427 Cobra and a Motormax 2005 Ford GT. The WIX Cobra is the Elvis Presley Spin Out movie race version without windshield and is up to their usual high standard but I am a bit disappointed in the finish on the side pipes. The side pipes which are prototypically correct for the movie car but look so much better on the blue and silver WIX Cobras. Franklin Mint released the same Spin Out model but with a guitar. The Motormax Ford GT is pretty much standard fare but I wanted to include this year in my diecast Ford GT collection. It is a bit strange that there are no side windows included. I do prefer the Revell Snap Tite version though.
  2. Hi folks, it looks like Tamiya will release a kit of the Ford FT 2016 next year aswell: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/1181905-tamiya-24346-ford-gt So far we have a simple Revell snap kit of that car and there will be a detailed kit of the LM race version by Revell rather soon. So I guess a more detailed (yet probably only curbside) kit by Tamiya will add to the variety...
  3. A quick holiday build, starting with the Polar Lights 1/25 Ford GT snap kit. The main visible difference between the super-tuned 720 Mirage and the "basic" Ford GT is the lack of a rear bumper, which leaves the back end rather more open. And lots of cool black detailing... The dash responds well to a bit of detail painting I took most of the chrome off everything, leaving only the supercharger body (which, although it is more powerful on the Mirage, is also chrome plated like the original equipment) The wheels end up like this. If I was even more shortsighted than I am, and had a steadier hand, the orange bar in the middle would resolve into "Mirage", but I'm not, so it doesn't. The brakes are moulded in to the back of the wheel, and so rotate with the front, which is the only major compromise to simplify the kit. They are also not handed, which only matters on the rears which have the main calliper and a secondary thingy (I'd love to know what it is -- you get them on most supercar brakes, on one pair of wheels). I'll just have to set the wheels carefully to put the callipers in the right position before taking pics! The plain black plastic cockpit is much improved by a lick of paint. The seats are nicely thought-through, with inserts for the "breather" holes, but they are even better if you strip the chrome and repaint, and touch in the "holes" with a paint pen. So that's the chassis together. Depending on what you can see (the body is one-piece and doesn't open) I might add a few pipes and cables around the engine. I've no idea whether the colours of the bits in the nose section are right, but since I can't find ANY pictures, and you can't see them after it's built, I'm not going to worry too much. Elapsed time to this stage about 4 hours. Now for the cool black detailing! bestest, M.
