Scale I Build

Found 8 results

  1. Hey everyone!, how many of us have struggled through building this rather annoying kit? If you like this car, you don't really have a choice. Here I will show you how i'm dealing with it to make it a better kit, AND give this awesome car the performance it deserves. It has some of the best handling, and braking, but its not what it could be in the speed department, so I decided to put a 200+ mph Ferrari V8 in it. Here you can see all the things I hacked apart, and re-assembled in better ways.....it will have a one-piece body like the better Japanese kits when i'm through with it, and a better ride height. One of the very first things I did, was to separate the top of the dash from the body...…..that annoys the heck out of me when they do that! I also stole the tyres out of one of my Tamiya Ferrari F-40 kits...they do this car/kit justice!!! -Thanks for looking in!!
  2. Now I've done it Long, long, long ago I traded one of my 24th scale Autokits - the Ferrari 156 - to Forum member Rich C for his Autokits Lotus 25 and neither one of us has built them! these are the old curbside white metal kits that are now made by Finecast they build up great as curbsides so I thought - why not have a build blog for both we'll post as we can - and hopefully two builds will take shape as we go - the Ferrari constructed in the leafy confines of Sayre Pa. , and the Lotus constructed in the alligator infested swamps of South Florida .... as to my kit; I'm considering building a Lotus 32B - using some of the kit parts, such as the top half of the body, the wheels, uprights, and a few more random parts - I'll scratch-build the monocoque chassis and the engine - which was a four cyl Climax. The 32 B was based upon the Lotus 27. It had a slightly narrower chassis (than the 25) and straight runs of chassis rails - rather than the bends and kinks used on the 25's chassis. It looked like a Lotus 25 with a climax engine - but in fact it was not - but its only about an inch/half narrower than the 25 so I think I can finesse this .... this shot is from the Ultimatecarpage.com site hope Mr. Ultimate has no objection I'll remove this if requested but in the meantime - this gives you a good idea also there is a wonderful illustration of the car at PeterHuttonillustrator.com for those not familiar with the car, Google history of the Tasman racing series and you'll be an instant expert ...... this was one of Jimmy's favorites .... Rich will introduce his Ferrari ....
  3. Hey everybody! Thank you all for following my Pagani!!, now its time to get back to these little beauties......hope you stop in!!
  4. Added my first engine detail and seatbelts. Other than that, I followed the Tamiya directions.
  5. This is the first in my "Stig Collection". Its Tamiyas 1/24 Lotus Super Seven with ALOT of modifying. SB supercharger, dash, exhaust, roll bar, and windscreen. The hoodscoupe came from Fujimis Cobra 427 kit, and the seats are from a Lotus Esprit kit. I also added a paddle shifter. Got to try-out doing better photos with a new camera too!
  6. Wanting information about a Carousel (brand I have never heard of) Lotus 38 Indy race car, 1/18 scale (weird scale for me). Met someone whose dad recently died, member of the model club let us know he had a collection. I have not seen it yet. From my search on eBay, it seems to be rare and expensive, holy cow! I told them it's the holy grail of the collection, I'm not taking advantage of them to steal it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Race-Car-1960s-Lotus-Ford-Indy-500-Jim-Clark-F-1-18-Midget-Racer-Carousel/302706393139?hash=item467ab50033:g:NikAAOSwUEVYC71O
  7. It's been fun going through the ol' display case! Here's one I built from, well...? I forgot. Anyway, it's a little Lotus, in British Racing Green.
  8. A few things you don't see every day, from a great day out at the Donington Historic Festival: Sunbeam Tiger LM Coupe Aston Martin DB4GT Zagato Mercedes W125 continuation Jaguar XJR-15 Facel Vega 2 My garage... ;-P DBR1, DB3S and DP212 (I think...) Lancia Aurelia ERA and Alfa wheel to wheel Not the best picture, but the unique ERA GP1 in action... Senna's Lotus 97T in which he won his first GP, before it went out on the track...
