Talbot Lago t26c Silverstone 1949 1/12


Recommended Posts

Hi

This is my first 3D printed car, It´s from AMF modelcars in Spain. Liked it very much! There are some issues with the 3D lines that are nearly impossible to remove on some parts.

The fit is mostly great. It´s very different to build because you don´t have a manual as you are used to , mostly pictures how it will look when finished, so study the parts carefully.

I added screws, nuts rivets, hoses, springs mostly around the engine.some weathering here and there.  The seat is scratchbuilt. Painted with Tamiya TS-10 French blue.

Thomas, I'm completely floored by the quality of your build. Such exquisite detailing.

One of the very best I have ever seen.

What scale is it?

Thanks Pierre! It´s 1/12. AMF prints in different scales too.

Excellent engine bay finish

one tiny criticism - no sidewall detail on the tires …

but thats on the kit maker - not on the builder …

Thanks all 🙂 Andrew you are right about that, maybe the maker can fix that, he maybe will correct the grills shape too. A novice doesn´t notice, but it,s not 100% correct now, I didn´t thought about it before it was pointed out to me
