  1. Howy cwap on a cwacker, this is going to be an awesome build, the parts and detail you've shown so far are off the charts, absolutely can't wait to see more. I really like the direction your taking this, a bit different to the norm, which is way cool, I took my part kit glue bomb in a totally different direction also, after a couple of false starts. My humble effort is back a few pages if you haven't seen it, I'd be honoured if you could take a quick look and tell me wot ya think. Michael Pederick, ( roadkill ) from Perth, Western Australia.
  2. Wow, just wow, you clearly have a wicked, (warped) mind, (imagination) to create all these freakin awesome builds, and the build quality is second to none, awesome builds you should be very proud. Michael Pederick. (roadkill)
  3. 1965 Chevrolet Corvette World’s Fair display car. By Michael Pederick, aka Mr Casual. Where to start, I guess the beginning would be a good place, so here goes. So, this one started because I was really enjoying one eighth scale models, like with all my Jaguar models, which are of course one eighth scale, so when I saw this part kit for sale I figured eh why not, I should be able to cobble something together with this, so I bit the bullet and bought it. Obviously, the kit was incomplete, no biggy, knew that, but there was a lot less of the kit than I thought and it was a lo
  4. G'day, nice work on this one, but I was wondering if you could tell me what brand was this , as I had a '68 4 dr pillarless Impala and would so love to get my shrivelled old claws on one to build in the colour of my old car. Thanking you in advance. Kind regards, Michael Pederick, Perth, Western Australia. (aka Roadkill)
  5. Hey guys just wondering what happened to the "Large scale" section, 'cos I only build large scale, 1/12 and 1/8, and now I've got nowhere to share etc. Kind regards Michael Pederick, aka, Roadkill.
  6. Hey guys just a quick question, what happened to the large scale section, i miss it as I only build in 1/12 and 1/8. kind regards Michael aka Roadkill.
  7. By all that's holy in any way to anyone, mate I've only got two words for you my man, 'kn wow. Amazing attention to detail, fantastic job. Roadkill bows to you, aka, Michael.
  8. x3, Hey Ken all I'm getting is "sorry image deleted" and the link to your photobucket says error, which is a pity as your build sounds fantastic and I would love to see it. Kind regards Michael.
  9. Hi Guy's, I’d like to show you how I made the rear section of my Jag. The car I’m building is actually the “lightweight”, so it has a (fixed) hardtop but the rear body is the same. Ok pic 1 is fairly obvious but you’ll notice that I kept the side and front window frames intact for later (invaluable) use, I started the rear section of the interior as it is part then of the rear deck. Now in pic 3 you can see the piece of the roof that will now be the rear deck, and all I did was turn it 180 and found that the contours, (left to right, and front to back) are BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH near perfect, you
  10. G'day Jeremy, I had the same thought as you as to the body on this kit not being the best, but the rest was reasonable. Also at the back of my cupboard (sorry closet) I had the (body only) busted remains of a 1/12 '57 Chev Belair, so I did the only logical thing and made a "F457 Belari". I think it's turning out ok so far. Kind regards Michael.
  11. Thanks for your input guys, I have tried polishing with soft cloth with mixed success, and the car I'm doing is an all aluminium body, and yes they spray very well indeed. Thanks again. Kind regards Michael.
  12. G'day guys, I'm wondering if anyone has used Humbrol Metalcote 27001 and 27002 and what kind of results they got. I've just airbrushed my entire 1/8 scale E-type Jag and now I'm not sure about the end result or whether to ,leave it, coat with Glosscote, or recoat and see what happens. Kind regards Michael from the left coast of the big island down under.
  13. Hi, just a couple more pics, would'nt fit in 1 post, regards Michael.
  14. G'day guys, here's my sad attempt at a raceing '57. I chopped the roof and body, converted to right hand drive, replaced, wheels, tires, brakes and suspension, moulded bumpers. Hope you like. Michael,(aka Roadkill) from the left coast of the big island down under.
  15. G'day again guys, I've just added a couple of hundred photos to my photobucket albums, inc the "lightweight" Jag and the "original" Jag and the Jag "as it is now" plus the "quick Chev". So feel free to have a good squiz at them. Thanks Michael (aka mr casual & roadkill ) http://s763.photobucket.com/home/mrcasual
