  1. Klasse gemacht! Super Präsentation! Well done! Nice presentation!
  2. Great model! Very well done! The presentation is great too!
  3. Thanks mates for this nice comments. Gives me a good feeling! Merci!
  4. Hi Monty ... This is purple metallic (dark lilac) from the spray can. I only paint with rattle cans. My wife found this shade and I liked it. That’s something completely different. Best regards, Uwe.
  5. Hey, modelling friends... First, many thanks for your nice comments... Makes me glad... All the problems were that nothing was straight. Almost all parts were bent or twisted. Here we worked with hot water and a hairdryer to get the parts halfway straight again. All parts were still under tension and it was really annoying to build. Actually, I've never had such severe problems before. (... and I've been building for a few years!). So, now you also know why I am totally annoyed by this model. 😟 Greetings from across the ocean, Uwe.
  6. Thanks, mates! I like it when you'll like it!!!
  7. Hello everybody, and here another model. It was a French kit from Heller. I gave myself the kit for Christmas. However, if I had known what difficulties I would have, I would never have bought the kit. Nothing would fit. Anyway, too late to complain. All "heavy tools" were really brought up. The only thing that wasn't used was a hammer and chisel! lol The convertible top is covered with real leather. I think it got pretty neat anyway? Comments are welcome. Greetings from Germany across the ocean!
  8. Hey mates, I'll get in touch again after a longer abstinence. I have again produced something reasonably useful. A '64 Dodge 330 Super Stock from Lindberg. Building the model was not easy because a few parts were no longer there. I bought the kit used, no longer originally sealed. Something like that can happen. The model was not built as shown on the box. I tried to get a civilized racer. Of course I don't build as well as some of my colleagues here, but I think I'll get there at some point? Let's see if you like it? Constructive criticism is welcome, write me.
  9. Servus Dominik, ich bin dort der "Cycler", habe aber schon einige Zeit nichts mehr gezeigt weil ich mit dem Bild-Upload nicht klar komme...
  10. Hello Dominik, Yes, you are right, that red comes through a bit. And that despite the clear coat before I set the decals. It annoys me a lot too, believe me. The whole thing seems to be a Monday model? Absolutely nothing worked. I even had to order a new hood from Revell because the one from the kit could not be used. A question: Do we know each other from the big blue forum in Germany? I have already shown some models there. Greetings from Germany, Uwe.
  11. Many thanks, mates! Makes me fell good! It makes me keep on modeling!
  12. Hello friends! Now a model of a different kind. A '33 Caddy. The kit is from Italeri and was very, very old. 1:24 scale. I didn't want to build a mobster mobile, so I decided on this hopefully more appealing variant. Comments are welcome. And, as always, greetings from Germany, Uwe.
  13. Hello everybody, Today Starsky & Hutch say hello. I want to show you a '76 Ford Torino. Built OOB because I didn't want it any other way. It's not perfect for a long time, but I like it. You are very welcome to write something about it, I would be very happy about it. As always, Greetings from Germany, Uwe.
  14. Well done job! Looks great! Really! Like the color, real good paint job!
  15. Dankeschön, Dominik! Naja, Mist passiert... Ähnliches hatte ich auch schon...? Thank you all very much! @ Dominik: Bad things are happen sometimes. Something similar happens to me...
  16. Here as well, many thanks for this nice answers! Dankeschön! ? I wish everybody here a nice Sunday!
  17. Many thanks for all this answers! May you all have a real nice Sunday!
  18. Many thanks for your replies... Dankeschön!!! ?
  19. All I can say is: WOW!!!!!!!!!! That's a really great and wonderful job! Just fantastic!
  20. Hello, friends of model building, here is a work from Germany. Getting this kit was not easy for me. Imported goods. I had to order it from England. American kits are hard to find here in Germany. Something about the model: It was my first two tone painting. Didn't turn out that bad? The pick-up is unfortunately closed all around the windows, so you can't see the genuine leather seats. To bad! The exhaust pipes are made of stainless steel, 3 x 1 mm. The loading area has got real wood. Ship planks from a model builder friend. I hope you like it a little? I would appreciate a little comme
