Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. I built this as a departure from my usual vintage iron. I picked it up cheap in Singapore after a day-long search of the city for a model shop that sold something other than RC or military kits. My previous build was a 59 Caddy, with tons of chrome, so I thought it was going to be a quick blast, being kerbside. But the carbon fibre decals were a real trial, the kit decals were also some of the most fragile I've ever used. The large decals for the door broke up, despite my extreme care. I had to leave it alone for a few weeks, as I was getting too angry about it... However, apart from the Revell 49 Merc I built a few years ago, this is one of the newest-tooling kits I've built. The fit and condition of the parts was excellent and required minimal cleanup. It has functional steering and suspension. The brake rotors were bright chrome, but a rotational rub with very fine grit polishing cloth gave them a much more realistic appearance. I added red buttons to the steering-wheel (Gran Turismo 5 was quite good source material!) Apart from that, it's totally box stock. The engine and exhaust are moulded-in. I used silly putty to mask the surrounding bodywork while I sprayed on the silver: The tyres are the best I've seen on a kit. I used a 10x lens and could read the size on the tyre wall! Paint is from rattle-cans, polished, buffed and waxed Thanks for looking
  2. I haven't posted here in a while as i have many builds on the bench and other things happening. Anyway i have finished this one off, basicly stock except i painted the rims black and used a custom mixed colour for the exterior. Let me know what you think.
