  1. Hello friends Here I bring you this heavy car fighter from the German Wehrmacht. The model is from the Italeri brand at 1/35 scale, painted with camouflage and with a figure. https://youtu.be/52lo5oJrVUc Greetings and I hope you like it

  3. Volvo FH16

    Finaly wrapped this one up. It's the old Italeri kit # 735. I got it for a steal on Ebay a few years ago, and started it late winter. Built it box stock with no additional detailing. Turned out okay. I have to say, I'm not a fan of multi piece bodies! And I found some of the details really fiddly and tricky. Like the rear cab fairing supports. Those were a bugger to get right! And some of the engine details didn't fit quite right. Like the air cleaner assembly. Using the stock holes and slots in the frame wouldn't have worked, as the front inner fender, air cleaner, and intake pipe to the turbo were not all lining up, so I had to cut some tabs and move things around to make them fit. Other than that, no issues to speak of. Paint is Tamiya right from the can; TS-18 Metallic Red, TS-38 Gunmetal. The chassis and trim are four different shades of black. The bulk of which is a Duplicolour bumper paint. The headlights and tail lights were BMF'd before being applied. All in all, I'm fairly happy with how it turned out. Next kit though will hopefully be something smaller, without the multi-piece body!
  4. Porsche 993 Carrera

    Well this kit has been an incredibly long WIP. I bought this kit back in the mid-90s when I was still working for Porsche. It was to be one of the kits that got me back into building. So I started it, then promptly stopped working on it. For whatever reason. And now I'm going to finish it. Back when it was new, I decided purple was the colour of choice. And I decided to spray that right onto the body, no prep, no primer, big mistake. So now I've done the purple bath, properly prepped the body, primed it using Tamiya white primer, then sprayed Tamiya Gun Metal. Needs some polishing, but I like how the colour turned out. Interior is now a semi-gloss black, with Model Master Dark Crimson. I think it's a pretty close approximation to Porsche's Oxblood Red. Over the years, the kit's wheels and seats vanished. Thanks to Steve (Intmd8r) I have a set of wheels and tires that could be interesting on this one, going to require some suspension tweaking, but it should look cool when done. I have a set of seats coming from Clearly Scale, so those will look pretty good once in. Not going too nuts with detailing on this one. Just want to finally finish it and have a good looking curbside kit to put on the shelf.
  5. Range Rover Rally

    This is the beginning of the Range Rover that won the 1981 Paris-Dakar Rally. Kit Review here. http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/118121-italeri-range-rover-rally/#comment-1711587 No engine, but some interior detail. I have never tried weathering a kit, so this may be a candidate for my first try. The rear was solid, but I cut out the window and tailgate. The mesh above is some I had lying around, the mesh below is from the kit, as well as the two included fire extinguishers. Auxiliary fuel tank and aftermarket tubing Basic detail on the chassis Added seatbelts. Rollcage is standard Prelim fit of what it will look like
  6. Hello, mates! It's been a while since my last post, sorry for that. So I'm glad to introduce you the model I finished just on 31 of December, 2015. By the way, this is the first big rig I was building I took an Italeri kit and carried on a little conversion. The cab was given a rear wall as I wanted it as a daycab. The bed is made from styrene sheets and profiles, the boards were cut from balsa wood sheet. I also made straight exhaust pipes from styrene rod and added mounting brakets made from wire and square profile. The truck has got some aftermarket parts - super-single front tires, six-spoke resin rims, photoetched badges on the hood and grille and the dog, of course. As you can see I tried to represent some wiring and plumbing under the hood and chasis, of course that is not 100% close. The final point is the weathering. You know, I like to give a 1/24 scale model some weathering, because it geves you much more opportunities than 1/35 scale. The effects you can see on cars and trucks in a real life are varied extremely wide, so there's a full scope to train your skills. As a result of it all - here we got this old, ratty but still sturdy workhorse straight from some construction site or a junkyard. I hope you'll enjoy it. Greetings from Russia!
  7. Starting a new project. A Opel Blitz TLF 3.6T Firetruck from a Italeri 1:24 scale kit. More on my blog (spanish text only, sorry): http://www.angelnoes.es/2016/03/opel-blitz-tlf-36-motor-italeri-124.html
  8. So, it's been a while since the last post, here is one I have finished not long ago. Freightliner FLC with some mild changes from the box, decals from Modeltruckin', photo etch parts like nameplates, flap weights, chicken lights and supports from KFS, drive tires from Auslowe, exhaust stand pipes from the Australian Western Star and sleeper from the FLD kit. The wheels of the Moebius trailer swtched to bigger Italeri rims and tires to better match the truck. most decals on the trailer also from Jerry Reeter. Spread axle with scratch built tool boxes, same flap weights as the freight. Color is Tamya pure white and Duplicolor Ford dark green.
  9. Porsche 993 Speedster RWB

    Thought I'd make a Workbench post of one of my more (for me) extreme builds. This started life as an Italeri Porsche 993 Convertible, bought with the intention of making the Japanese Porsche tuner Rauh Welt Begriff haven't done, a RWB Speedster! Now, there are transkits out there to make a RWB 993, but they are pricey and won't fit this kit, so what to do? You build it yourself of course! This is the kit I bought as the base. And to make the convertible body a Speedster body, I had to make a cover plate, so out came some modeling foam, which I sculpted to fit the body, using reference photos of the older and newer Speedster 911's. The 993 was never built from factory as a Speedster except for very few examples.
  10. going to start an italeri pete as soon as it arrives (b-day present to myself) thinking similar this one or maybe i will use the stock unibilt sleeper without the air deflector...not sure yet tho....take care guys
  11. Ferrari 288 GTO

    Hi everyone, today i will show you one of my European car in my collection. The best Ferrari ever, they built - the 288 GTO. I build it stock in memory of my first build Ferrari ever in the 80's, that never went out of my collection and always remember me to my first steps in modeling. I didn't had the money for laquer of clearcoat *lol*. So i build the same kit this year again. Nice to see, how i build 20 years ago... The only bad thing is, that the right mirror broke before i made the pictures. One thing always happens on the finish lane...but i can handle it. Thanks for your attention, comments or criticism are always welcome
