Scale I Build

  1. Specifically a Tamiya Toyota Sprinter Trueno GT-Z AE92. My second model in 20 years after the brown Crown I posted awhile back. Here's another megapost with some inspo and more fun photo experiments! Here's the two of 'em together, chillin'. The kit: The inspiration - went for kind of an Okinawa surf vibe with this one...wanted to see if I could make blanket seat covers like that. Weird little 1/2 mudflaps... Fixed. Added the pop-ups from the Initial D AE86, I guess Takumi will have to deliver during t
  2. Kitbash of the Aoshima Toyota Celica LB 2000GT Liftback and the Tamiya Toyota Celsior (USA market Lexus LS400). Been thinking of this project for some time. Have a couple of photos found on the web of a Celica with a turbocharged Lexus V8, so that is where I started. Assembled the chassis and engine, mostly with Tacky glue. Cut off the hood, using the Tamiya scriber. I knew there might need to be flares, design pending. Chassis pan will be shortened in the middle, cut off the back, and much of the front overhang removed. Looked at my choice of wheels. Th

    Kitbash of the Aoshima Toyota Celica GT2000 Liftback, and the Tamiya Toyota Celsior V8, chassis, and interior (Lexus LS400 in the USA), Celica + Lexus. WIP thread The V8 is very popular for street rodding Corollas, some Celicas have also been done. Had this idea since July 2003, started April 21 and finished in a little over 110 hours. The basic architecture of the two cars is similar, the sedan wheelbase was shortened about 5/8", Celica body widened about 5 MM each side. Not sure what class this would fit into at some contests, 'Tuners' are usually Japanese turbocharged 4 cylinders, 'S
  4. Started this one on the 2nd of January and got it together today the 3rd. Painted Tamiya TS-42 light gun metal, it went together really easy. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  5. Round2 is really digging deep into the Lesney era snap kit tooling inventory.
  6. Hello, here is my newest build, its Toyota TE27 Levin from Fujimi kit.. I did spent week to build this since i wanted to finish it fast becouse there is model contest soon on next week, and i wanted to build something new to show up there. Its my second model show so far in my life time so im bit exited.. Not a big show, but still one to go. Ok about built and stuff i did for this.. Lowered chassis from front to get that stance look good. Aftermarket 13" ATS wheels with tires from this Fujimi kit. Interior got door handles etc, also there are some speakers and nice flag in
  7. Originally a Lindberg kit, now packaged under the AMT label, the 1/20 scale 1992 Toyota 4x4 Pickup should be available soon:
  8. Hi All, I set myself a challenge, to complete a quick build before i go back to work in a weeks time. Below is my progress so far... The Kit in Question is the Aoshima Toyota Chaser. It is just a Curbside Kit, so shouldnt take that long to complete. My vision for this build is to be a JDM VIP car, So slightly modified exterior, and big Chrome wheels. The Wheels i intend on using are the SSR MS3, by Aoshima. First up, i prepped the body. removed any extra mould lines, and went to work on the bonnet. I decided i would make a custom vented bonnet using o
  9. So, this was sitting for a long time now, very much unfinished, becuase im still working on the rx7, which is still waiting for some sprays and clear coat but i still have high hopes with this!
  10. Since I do not anticipate getting any others done this year, I thought I'd share pics of what I have accomplished. January Tamiya Toyota Celica GT-4 Aoshima 2000 Toyota Chaser JZX100 "Itasha" Aoshima Toyota Estima G March Fujimi 1999 Mazda RX7 Aoshima Laurel C33 April Monogram 1957 Ford Del Rio Wagon May AMT 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Revell 1957 Ford Tudor Custom Thanks for looking!
  11. My 3rd Build was going to be easy. i thought .... but it just seamed like it was fighting me especially the paint .had to redo much of it . and i did not end up where i had originally pictured it . it definately dident turn out to be a showcar (maybe a contender for a Complete restauration in the future. but never the less i got it done . this Corona has a custom interior with a rollcage. custom front and rear spoiler. and a mesh in the grill. the wheels are optional Mpc.s . im imaginating the car to be a Jdm/drift guy,s plaything / everyday driver . ´this build really pushed me to the point o
  12. Tamiya's New kit built straight out of the box. Some 1500 real cars produced, not all black, this is a factory color mixed in lacquer. Kit went together without any worries, though the decals were a little fussy. A word on the real car; exactly one real one is known to exist. I saw one in the lobby of the Toyota Motor Museum in Nagoya, Japan, and didn't know at the time that it was a replica built for Toyota's 50th Anniversary. The only real survivor was discovered in Siberia in poor shape, being used by a farmer for generations and endlessly repaired with whatever was on hand. It now lives i
  13. This is a 1/20 Toyota pickup I got from a good friend of mine since the 89-94 Toyota pickups are my favorite body style I have always wanted to build a real one. This build is exactly how I would want my real one body dropped on 18s, fully shaved, custom interior, molded tailgate and roll pan, custom interior. I would want it painted the brightest red I could find and grey interior. I would want to put in a sliding rag top aswell for those long summer days of skating down the strip with the music bumping my favorite hams so here goes my scale build of my dream truck I am now 24 hrs into the bu
  14. going to slowly start a new project . this its the 1970 Toyota corona from Otaki . i dont yet know what i will be doing here . should it be box stock or Custom i have no idea about color yet could be anything ... now the interior sucks on this kit the seats are half sized . because i guess they liked to make these kits into slot-cars back then. so it has a battery compartment and room for a motor inside . and there are gears on the back axle . so there is some work in that if i choose to try and fix it the body is pretty nice on first glance. the doorhandle,s are hollow and corona emble
  15. "Itasha" means Pain car in Japanese. This could refer to the pain you feel when looking at it or the cost to your wallet after building it :-) Basically an Itasha car is one that is covered in pictures of Anime, Manga, and Pop star decals. Some look really cool. I think the one I built does. Thanks for looking!
  16. Hello, I wanted to share my first done model car, here is video,
  17. This is Fujimi's Supra from the Togue series. Its a curbside, and it has the worst chassis I've ever seen on a curbside. It looks worse than most toys, so I didn't even take a picture of it. This kit was issued in a few different forms, and you get a lot of optional extra pieces, such as mirrors, steering wheel, sunroofs, Recaro seats, roll cage and the option of lights up or down. I put the cage in, but removed it. It's positioned too far forward, and you cant fix it without removing the rear seats and fabbing the whole rear of the interior without the seats. The instructions don't tell yo
  18. My latest creation, Aoshima 80´s Toyota Corolla, Rat Rod style.
  19. Along with my 64 Chevy Pickup I started this Tamiya Kit to give to a good friend. Its mostly stock but I had a old Castrol Supra kit so I stole the brakes and probably the seat and other random bits. I tried to fit the wheels but they are too wide and did not want to ruin anything by cutting and hacking it up. Thats beyond my skill level at the moment Some of these pics are not great because I was too lazy to use real camera, so just sent from phone. I love my Spray booth, it may be the only way I continue to work with the move coming in a few weeks. Lets hope it does the job assu
  20. The 1:1 car I was going for... The finished product, weathered and ready for another run... Plates are just a hair bigger than I was looking for... ohh well.... TRD stickers on bumper.. "Free Candy Car Club" decal in window, along with vintage Japanese "experienced driver" logo in window...
  21. This is a build of a friend of mine's car from our car club here in VA. He uses the car for daily driving as well as autocrossing, so I want to make it look real good. His car... Rattle can flat black... Should be pretty straightfoward.
  22. (well, not quite 50 years, but they look good together...) There's a family heritage running through this lot, and they look cool together! And these two share Toyota's passion for engineering and a roaring Yamaha heart beating under the bonnet... plus they look even cooler together! ;-P bestest, M.
  23. This took a little longer than expected, but it is complete now. ]
  24. Hey Fellas, here's my latest Project - A Stanced Tamiya Toyota GT86/Scion FR-S Hope ya like it Wheels Are Toyota TTE Tarmac Rally Wheels Thanks for Stoppin' by!
  25. Here is a project I have been working on for awhile. I am trying to finish it soon for our clubs big contest coming up. I actually was inspired to build this from a song. The idea here is what if a guy took a 32 Ford roadster and decided to build it to go drifting in. I even have a resin Japanese girl to stand next to it when it's finished.
