  1. Well, this was an interesting case. This is the Tamiya kit, pretty well detailed out of the box. I wondered about the dark green exterior and the blue interior and chassis - but reference photos seemed to indicate it was just that. The kit had some clear parts for the undercarriage. I would normally just paint them, but I decided to leave the clear for a change. The biggest challenge was the decals. The kit decals were yellowed, so I sourced out a sheet from Tailormade - and they were pretty good. Whiter than the yellowed kit decals. I also bought a sheet from "some guy on eBay". Between the 3
  2. Thanks for the nice comments. Car is done, you can see all the photos here
  3. This is Tamiya's Peugeot 205. I used some resin pieces ad decals from Renaissance, seatbelts from Spot Model. Very finicky to build. Still have some minor details like mudflaps to add, but it's pretty close to "under glass" at this point.
  4. Here's a photo of what I'm trying to build. I have the aero pieces put together. Ready to detail the body, slap on some decals. Stay tuned!
  5. Here's the WIP. It will have a nice big wing on the back, and some aero bits in the front when it is done
  6. To start 2021, I wanted to do something simple. So here is the box stock, Subaru Brat, basic engine.
  7. If you are like me, modeling helped keep some sense of sanity and normalcy. Happy New Year everyone, and here's to a better 2021. The bar was certainly set low in 2020.
  8. This AMT kit also has a Go Kart, which I'll try and finish this weekend. The model itself is inspired by a 1:1 I saw online. Same color combination. The decal for the seat I got from Hiroboy. They also have some Indian blanket pattern decals which I'll use in other models. Minor engine detailing, and some photo etched parts. It seem like it took a long time to finish this. I keep looking for a quick build, but seem to make it more difficult. I have a question for the community here. What is the BEST tape to use for painting and masking? The line looks pretty good here - but in all transp
  9. Very nice. I'm just finishing mine. What kind of tape did you use while painting? The separation between black and white colors is very good!
  10. Hey Rich, thanks for the comments. If you end up building the same model I did, the trick is that you really have to put all the hood and side decals on in one sitting. The decals for the hood overlap - of course they don't tell you HOW they overlap, you just have to figure it out. Then the side decals have to line up. So block off the time, and breath deep. (But don't hyperventilate). In my kit, there was one red decal that wasn't called out in the instructions, and I used it as a doner to patch the blocks of red color if they tore during the setting process. Lucky break there.
