Scale I Build

  1. Came across this on eBay and thought it looked cool. Paid a lot for it, but it's worth it. The kit says it's a 1:24th scale, but it's a 1:25th scale. There's also extra parts to make the S500 and 600 versions. The kit isn't too bad, but it has some flaws. Like a lot of models there's not much room for the windshield to be glued in. There's also a major fit issue with the dash. If you follow the directions, there's a huge gap between the dash and the windshield/firewall area. I could fit another dash and a half in that gap. I had to rework the model some to make it look right. I was a
  2. Hey folks,,here a a bizzare creature in styrene,,got this at a swap meet last year for 7$,,it was a glue blob in a ziplock bag,,1/2 built. Complete teardown,,striped all paint+ plating. And with only pics of it on the web,,I didnt have an instruction sheet ,,set out to rebuild. Used Truevalue red hardware store paint,,and same BLK for chassis. Hand painted everything else. It came with a bullit style fairing,,that as Steve Perry stated when we looked at it in the bag,,he found the fairing "disturbing" LOL ,,Steves awsome. And I agreed,,so Ididnt even use most if it,,I trimmed w/a dr

    Honda NSX

    Hi all Last summer I started my first WIP (which can be found here) here on Model Cars Magazine with Tamiya's Honda NSX. Today I finally managed to take the finished model to my studio to take some gallery pictures. I hope you like the photographs of this beautiful car. Best, Urs
  4. My old ride was 11 years old. It was a great car and never gave me any troubles. 2008 and 2019 Honda Civics The color is called tonic yellow. The salesman asked me three times if I really wanted that color. Even asked if I had seen it in person. I lied and said yes. LOL! They had sold the one they had in stock the day before. They had to call another dealership and swap with them. Even the guy at the other dealership asked if I really wanted that color! I don’t see what the problem is! I love the color! Although my daughter and I did laugh when we first s
  5. Hello, I post it here, because the scale fits our cars, and they will eventually end up as cargo on a truck or in a van, so yea... Last week a friend of mine got me some stuff from Japan, I got some kits, books and Aoshima’s Honda Motocompos in 1:24 that my buddy pulled out of a vending machine… In the machines there are these eggs: And in these eggs are half built model kits, in my case these Motocompos. Honda Motocompo is one of the best inventions of the 80ies, they are tiny motorbikes that can be folded to about the size of a b
  6. Treated myself to a new kit yesterday as a re-entry into modeling. I was very active for many years, but my eyesight was deteriorating and it made modeling difficult. This summer I had surgery to correct my "young-person's cataracts" and viola! I can see again. Dick Mann was quite a character and I got to meet him a few times as he was friends with my parents. He ran this bike as a privateer without much factory support. This kit is a bit odd as it is in 1:8 scale which I never worked with before. I am building it box stock, although I will be painting parts different colors than directed beca
  7. Only because I own a 2016 Honda Civic EX-T Coupe (10th generation), am I looking at this. From what I can tell, it's average quality, and a curbside. The Type R is a top-of-the-line pocket rocket, has not been offered in the USA before (a rebadge prior not worthy). Converting it to LHD would be a pain, and it's the hatchback version which is much different than my Coupe's trunk. The real car *starting price* is $36,595, so I will never buy one; but to build what they don't offer is tempting. Has anyone bought a Modeler's kit? https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10568107
  8. Originally a Lindberg (possibly even a Pryo kit first?) kit, now packaged under the MPC label, presumably to mesh with all the previous MPC large scale motorcycle reissues: Older, original Lindberg kit for comparison:
  9. Well here is my latest builds, a Honda beat and a Mazda autozam az1. A couple Japanese kei cars. I'm pretty happy with them since I have never built anything like them before lol. The autozam is box stock and the beat was lowered and photoetched emblems. Both have custom plates I made.
  10. Doin some cleaning today,,and ran across this in the storage area,,Tamiya makes some really great kits,,this being the CB 750 thats been out forever. One of my fav in-line 4 bikes.

    Honda NSX

    Hello, here a new model from me. I have the widening of the fenders again created and printed. The wheels are 3D printed too. Furthermore, I have installed etched parts and changed the body on the model of Jon Sibal. It was painted in Candy-Yellow by Zero Paints and 2K clearcoat. Carbon decals are from Scaleproduction.
  12. Hi, everyone my name is Kevin. I'm currently building the civic type R ek9, I'm a complete rookie when it comes to a model car, hence I ran into the problem below: As the picture suggested, I have some area that needs to be re-worked, I had 3 layers of primer and the colour coat( white ). I think there are only two ways to sort it out: 1. To mask the remaining area with masking tape, and re-do the fenders and the front end. (Primer+colour coat)? But I think the method one would take more time and money( the usage of spray can), since I already have three layer
  13. The 1:24 scale Hasagawa kit of the first generation Honda Civic hatchback. Since my first car was a 1977 Civic CVCC, I *had to* get two of these kits. I still have dealer brochures, great for reference (cutaway picture). I have not opened up the bags yet, if that's required for a proper review, I will do so. It's a curbside, decent engine bottom detail, but there is proper shock tower detail, as if there will be a chance for an engine kit. I'm wanting to build a US version, which will require scratch-building the front turn signals, door mirror, side lights, and the most demanding pa
  14. Hello friends Here I bring you one of the best unions between sportsman and machine. The machine or rather the motorcycle is a Honda and the athlete definitely had to be Valentino Rossi. He dominated the 2002 season and achieved the 2002 and 2003 championship over the RC211V. This model manufactured from the Tamiya brand in 1/12 scale, one of my first models made. https://youtu.be/fJmtochZHr0 Greetings and I hope you like it
  15. Hello! This is my second model ever, so it's far from perfect; but I hope you enjoy it anyway. The body color is Testors Graphite Dust Lacquer Spray and the performance decals are from a 1/24 Initial D Sileighty kit I have yet to complete. Also, I apologize for my awful interior pictures, the way the kit was assembled was with the dash attaching to the body so I couldn't get complete interior pictures with the body off.
  16. Great model this, went together soo well, only has issues with the gloss coat & the flocking. I do have a WIP post as well... Enjoy! Criticisms welcome.
  17. I always wanted an S2000, but it was too impractical, so I ended up with a civic type R instead - which is a car I loved to own, so much so, that I ended up keeping it for 5 years and sold it on at 90k on the clock (miles). Any how, decided to do this build as it's curb side, and should be quick. I haven't actually finished a model in 2 and a half years due to house renovations. This will be a quick build with not too much detail, I want to learn more about clear coating with 2K, and use my first set of PE in earnest. Box art: Using Hobby Design Photoetch: I've cut out the grill to add P/E l
  18. Hi all, So the 1966 Chevy Nova project has been put on hold till I can get to a shop to get more body paint (lesson learnt with the EK9 project, more on that in just a bit). So I decided to take the Fujimi EK9 kit for a quick build into a Spoon Civic look, it's not quite finished yet but made so many mistakes on the way too. Problems and Bad stuff: - Only had one small can of yellow body paint and the body could have done with another 1-2 wet coat before I sealed it with clear - I then attempted to mask and paint the black accents on the window trims on the clear plastic and turns out using
  19. Happy summer !,,,hope its all good for ya'll. Been a busy season so far,,but I still have a bit of 'construction" time. I was working on this kit over the past month or so,and went out on web to look at some other builds of this,,its been out on market for a year or more,,but couldnt find very many "built" post about it. So,,got it done,,and thought "why not post it". I built a GP version of it kindof,,I like chrome as much as anyone,but I wanted a different style version of this iconic machine. So I took style cues from various race bikes I saw on the web,,and heres what I came up w
  20. This is a Gunze Sangyo HiTec kit I got a few years back. It's a collectible but I got it for a bargain price when I came across it at a model contest. So I figured I might as well build it. Thee frame is a soft metal and it has real spoke wheels. Those were fun wiring up. I do want to get the new Tamiya 1/12 Honda RC166 with all the added extras to build. That's in my Amazon wish list right now. Anyway, here's the bike:But first here's some of the WIP shots of the wheel: Here's the fork:I painted AlClad on the shiny metal parts because polishing them up really didn't make them shiny, they
  21. All the Honda Motors I've built so far!
  22. I built this replica of my dad's '85 CRX Si 28 years ago for his birthday in '86. It's one of the my oldest surviving builds. I had to do a little repair work on it recently, so I cleaned it up and photographed it for my web site. You can see more pics at the link. http://www.svensworldofwheels.com/85_honda_crx_page.html
  23. Hey everyone, My name is Shawn & I'm a Honda enthusiast. I have built almost all of the Revell Honda or Acuras. Recently turned onto this page I figured I'd come share my work. Please Enjoy!
  24. my current project or last of the revell honda/acura builds!! Blue Hyancinth NSX & the C30 V6 engine
  25. Hi all, Recently someone drove it to the back of my van so I've had a month of worth, during that time I seem to have found a rather addictive new hobby of building up cars. Here is my first attempt at building up a Hasegawa 1/24 Honda Civic, this is based on a car I used to own and wish I never sold, Still got some details to finish and been a massive learning curve. Made a few mistakes and would do things a different way next time in places but the next one has arrived today so will know for next time. The wheels arrived in chrome which mine never were so these were going to need to be ch
