  1. Wow wow can't believe I missed this one! Chromework on this looks very clean and vinyl treatment is spot on as well!
  2. Looks very realistic! Black on red is my favorite color combo.
  3. Beautifully done! The color really works well.
  4. Thank you! It's a great kit that doesn't need ton of work to make it look good. It's a recent re-release so they're available for cheap price as well. Thank you! My new macro lens helped getting some good pics! Thank you very much!
  5. Beautifully done and color looks fantastic too!
  6. And it's also probably the fact you'll likely need to fold your mirrors after you park in rest of the world! Great build and result especially with the kit that doesn't have much details.
  7. Beautiful build. Love the contrast between white body and black vinyl!
  8. Thank you! Thanks. The build process is in my original post - I'd say Mr surfacer 1200 is pretty much the same as Tamiya grey surfacer, and compounds in between coats don't yield much because even the course tamiya compound is not strong enough to properly flatten the orange peel - so I always hit with 2000 or 3000 grit before hitting it with compounds.
  9. Stunning paint! Clear parts look so clean as well.
  10. Thank you! It's my favorite Lamborghini ever made! Thank you so much! Thank you! Thank you! There are a lot of 60s machines I want to build, but kit selections are fairly limited! It must be the little branches!
  11. Beautifully done! The interior detail looks stunning. Love the monochromatic exterior color too.
  12. Nice build! Love the period wheel and rubber. I have an identical wheel set too.
  13. Thank you! Smaller aperture (I shoot between F16 - F22) helps capturing all the details. Appreciate it! Thank you very much! It's definitely easy to put together - body was almost perfectly free of any uneven surface or nasty mold lines so I didn't spend hours of body prep (I'd typically spend a full day fixing this for revell/monogram kits). Interior metal transfers are a bit finicky but otherwise it's very easy to put together. Thank you! Thank you - the surface on my miura project isn't as good as my other previous work (all the flat panels were kin
  14. Thank you very much! Appreciate it! It's my favourite lambo as well! Thank you! Thank you very much! It is a beautiful model to work with! Highly recommended. Thank you! I spent so much time deciding what color combo to use! Thank you! Appreciate it! I agree! I love all the pre-countach era Lambos. Thank you! Soft box setting definitely hides all the imperfections. You got it! Cloudy day or under some sort of shade is the best for any car photography. I sometimes shoot it early in the morning or right a
  15. Beautifully done! Masking must've been pain in the ass - I haven't seen this kit executed such a clean manner!
  16. Thank you! It's not quite the right color I was going for, and next time I'll maybe try out overcoating with clear blue to achieve what I want! Thank you! Hasegawa sure did the great job getting the body and stance just right! Thank you! My new macro lens really helps getting closer shot. Thank you! Appreciate it! Thank you! It was a breeze to build one! Thanks a lot!
  17. Sharp looking Alpine and great video! Now I need to get my hands on those Tamiya Alpines...
  18. Fantastic restromod! Dull red for interior is one of my favourite colors too.
  19. One clean looking Impala! The wheels and stance just works great.
  20. Hey all, here’s my 5th build of 2021: Hasegawa Lamborghini Miura 400SV. I want this to be a simple box straight build even though there are a few details such as door vents that really could use detail up PE pieces. Overall it was a great kit with perfect stance and proportions - it sucks that there’s no way to access the engine bay once it’s assembled. Since almost every Miura produced had unique color combo, I wanted to replicate very dark blue with tri-tone (brown/tan/caramel) interior that some Miura came with - and here’s my build detail: Prepped body with Tamiya grey surfacer
  21. Great restoration job! Color looks bang on!
  22. Thank you! Thanks. I strongly recommend building the Lindberg 67' Olds! Thank you! Masking is definitely tedious but it's well worth the effort.
  23. Very interesting use of overcoat and result looks stunning!
  24. Fantastic color choice - for body, interior and engine details!
  25. Thank you Thomas. I'm always trying to improve! Appreciate it! Thank you! Modelling metallic colors (especially the size of flakes) have come a long way since a decade ago when I started modelling somewhat seriously! Thanks Tim! I always start my process with factory color books and looking at countless photos of examples - for me it's the most fun part of the modelmaking. Olds back in the day certainly had great colors to pick from.. unlike boring colors that you get with cars these days. Thank you as always!
