  1. Check out my first YouTube video.  Where I build the re-issued 1/12 Trumpeter Ford Gt-40 and converting it with my new resin hood and fender conversion kit to make the 1966 Daytona 24 hour Winning car

  2. I started this project several weeks ago right after the new Tamiya Mustang GT4 kit was released. Its a beautiful kit but I really wanted to make an Australian Supercars Mustang out of it.

    I realize that there are some dimensions around the roof area that are different from the stock Mustang and the Supercars Mustang, but I feel its not major enough to not attempt to make a good looking model out of it. 

    The major difference is the nose, its simple completely different on the Supercar.

    With basically no dimensions I started to sculpt out the front nose, little-by-little

    I did weeks of filling, and sanding, over and over, until I got the basic shape.

    New Hood, Nose, Grill, splitter, and rear wing assembly

    Also a right-hand drive setup for the inside


    After I got all the parts scratch built and perfected, I made molds and cast them with resin.

    The one part I need help on was with the wheels, I tried to scratch build them by hand but it just wasn't looking good. So I asked my good friend Indycals ( https://www.indycals.net/ ) for help! He 3D drew the wheels up and had them printed by Shapeways and the LOOK AMAZING! Thank you Indycals. Also, Indycals will be offering the decals for this new Resin conversion kit.

    I will make a mold of these 3D printed masters and cast them in resin.

    The modifications for this new conversion kit will actually be pretty basic

    Some sawing on the front fenders, and cutting out the hood is the most work this kit will require. There will be some filling and sanding for sure, but that's no big deal.

  3. I offer 3 different fender conversion kits for the NuNu Porsche 935 K3 at my store. With many more on the way in the coming weeks.

    These resin kits accurately convert the 1/24 NuNu Porsche K3/79 into the desired car like the Apple K3, the 1980 Jagermeister k3, and the Sachs K3

    I also have a comprehensive blog post on how to convert this kit properly.
