Scale I Build

  1. V-12 twin-turbo diesel engine in a race car? I really enjoyed building this Revell kit, a departure from my usual subjects. It is an older issue I got off ebay and I think the decals must have gotten damp at some point because I had a devil of a time with them. They would NOT release from the paper backing even after many minutes of soaking, I had to use my tweezers to get underneath and peel them off, very tense work. All in all I think it came out well and looks good on the shelf, an important milestone in racing history. Comments welcome, thanks for looking. The engine cover fits better than the photos, I just realized
  2. Kevin lists this as a '71-'72 trans kit. To me, the grille design looks a bit more like a '72. The non-scoop hood has complete underside detail. The chrome headlights will need lenses. I'm nothing to Missing Link except an enthusiastic customer. I'm just passing this info along. That's a '71 GTO promo in my photo. If you have questions, please e-mail Kevin directly at: kevin@missinglinkrc.com or: kawifreek@msn.com John href="https://public.fotki.com/jsharisky/model_cars_and_such/missinglinklemanstr.html"><img src="https://media.fotki.com/2v2HUrkJSxvfat.jpg" border="0"></a><a href="https://www.fotki.com" style="font-size:12px; font-family:Verdana; text-decoration:none;"
  3. It’s a neat little curbside kit, and I enjoyed building it. I will definitely build more of these curbside Tamiyas in the future – they are quick and fun builds.
  4. With Skyline done, time to start on another pretty box... Tamiya 1/24 Alpine Renault A442B Turbo #2 24H LeMans (D. Pironi/J.P. Jaussaud) this time - original 1979 release in a shelf-worn box! This one will be strictly box-stock - only parts that come in the box will be used. Building this for a box-stock contest on a Russian website.
  5. I just finished this , been a labor of love. It is the Panoz cup of noodles sponsored car that ran at Lemans. The kit is from Lemans Minatures. The decals are the hardest part of the kit. Each dragon is three separate decals. The hardest is the one that goes behind the drivers head. It has to lay over a bunch of different curves. The carbon fiber decals are from the kit and from Scale Motorsports. Tamiya paints were used .
  6. This is the Tamiya 1/24 scale kit of the Nissan R390 GT1 Le Mans car, and the body shell was spray-painted with Tamiya Metallic Blue over a base of Silver Leaf. Paint was polished up with MicroMesh 3200 grit thru 12000 grit, then rubbed up with Meguiar's Scratch-X. Mesh was added for vents and grills, and kit decals were used, as well as a few sponsor decals from Scale Motorsport. A lot of stuff added to the engine bay - thermostats were added to the radiators and exhaust system, hand-made shielded cable, fuel line, transmission fluid box, and tail light wiring from Model Factory Hiro, & spark plug wires from Detail Master. Exhausts were given a bit of Tamiya burnt metal powder pigments for added realism. Driver electronics are fully wired from comm. boxes, to temp gauges, to front lights. Front brake air ducts were scratch-built with parts-box leftovers. The P/E rivets and fast-release hood pins are from Scale Motorsport.
  7. Good day guys. Today I finished 'spirit of America' which is a Porsche 956 raced in LeMans 1986 and listed third at last. I would like to say that on building models, sometime i really like to reject the old but crave for the new. Recently i bought some 1/12 big scale F-1 kits, they're really great and i just can't wait myself building them. So here is this 956, my all time favourite group C car, with a really nice decal, an flag of USA. I didn't do the engine..becasue i just put this car body on my old tamiya porsche 956's chassic. Tamiya's 956 is a good enough kit that i can easily remove the car body. So here she is: had to mention that the decals on the front window should be white withe black words 'joest racing' , but unluckly i messed with that decal with some glue..so i chose the 84' Newman 956 #8 to replace it for now. Maybe fix with homemade decals next time. this time i tried a little bit different tools called 'electroplating powder'. i used this powder on wheels and front lights and i think the result is good enough to me. To sum up, i still have another 6 porsche 956 waiting for me i really like this car. Such a legend. any comment welcomed and thank you guy for watching.:)
  8. After 17 years of research, finding suitable kits, bits and decals my NART Corvette is finally done. Thoughts and comments are welcome! Regards Brian Kroon
  9. Hello Gents, Fotos of finished Diorama Regards Brian Kroon
