Scale I Build

Found 23 results

  1. This AMT kit also has a Go Kart, which I'll try and finish this weekend. The model itself is inspired by a 1:1 I saw online. Same color combination. The decal for the seat I got from Hiroboy. They also have some Indian blanket pattern decals which I'll use in other models. Minor engine detailing, and some photo etched parts. It seem like it took a long time to finish this. I keep looking for a quick build, but seem to make it more difficult. I have a question for the community here. What is the BEST tape to use for painting and masking? The line looks pretty good here - but in all transp
  2. Well, this was an interesting case. This is the Tamiya kit, pretty well detailed out of the box. I wondered about the dark green exterior and the blue interior and chassis - but reference photos seemed to indicate it was just that. The kit had some clear parts for the undercarriage. I would normally just paint them, but I decided to leave the clear for a change. The biggest challenge was the decals. The kit decals were yellowed, so I sourced out a sheet from Tailormade - and they were pretty good. Whiter than the yellowed kit decals. I also bought a sheet from "some guy on eBay". Between the 3
  3. To start 2021, I wanted to do something simple. So here is the box stock, Subaru Brat, basic engine.
  4. This is Tamiya's Peugeot 205. I used some resin pieces ad decals from Renaissance, seatbelts from Spot Model. Very finicky to build. Still have some minor details like mudflaps to add, but it's pretty close to "under glass" at this point.
  5. If you are like me, modeling helped keep some sense of sanity and normalcy. Happy New Year everyone, and here's to a better 2021. The bar was certainly set low in 2020.
  6. Here's an Alfa in progress. It will have the Martini livery. I wanted to build something simple, but as usual, made more work out of it. Used Studio 27 carbon fiber kit. It is coming together though.
  7. Here's a completed Unimog. Kit is from Revell Germany. Many, many parts. Lots of detail for exterior, interior and chassis. The light/siren bar is made up of 30 individual pieces. The only trucks I build are usually light Ford and Chevy's, so this one was a new experience. A journey for sure, but fun to see it finished.

I may be a little befuddled this morning - I think I also posted this in WIP. How do you delete posts if you put them in a place you didn't want them?
  9. From the Moebius kit. Tamiya dull red - liked color and the flat finish
  10. Hi. Here's my completed BMW. You can see the build progress in WIP.. This seemed like a walk in the park at first, but some fitment problems between the chassis, tub and body required a lot of fiddling. And it's one of those kits where the engine pushes up against the hood. So not as easy as I thought. The decals are from Racing 43 - really like the livery on this one.
  11. MOTHER OF PEARL! $#@ this was difficult. I kept trying to figure out why the parts didn't fit - its because they don't fit. Or at least I think they want you to build it with all the body parts hinged and open. So, yeah, lots of whittling to try and close some of the gaps between the body panels. I have a couple of detailing things to finish off but man, I've got to give it a rest. Makes me want to do a snap kit next!!
  12. Hi. Gradually making my way through this build by Aoshima. Got carried away with the carbon fiber so it's taking a while. But fun, challenging kit.
  13. Hi. I'm building this BMW M3 DTM and using some aftermarket bits to reflect the Agusto Farfus car and livery. The paint is Tamiya Cobalt Green which, after primer, went on so easily. Really a pleasure to work with. Here is my question to this group. I can find exterior shots of the DTM BMW i'm building, but I can't find ANY references for the engine and engine bay. Anyone have any ideas on that? Thanks and I'll post more pictures as I get further into it.
  14. This was a big reclamation project. I think I built this 15 - 20 years ago, and the clear coat on it had yellowed. Looked ugly. So I striped it, took it apart, applied some aftermarket bits and put it back together again. Took f o r e v e r. I have another I 'm going to build as a Pike's Peak version, but think I'll try something easier next.
  15. Hi. I started working on my second Hudson. I've been experimenting with colored, clear overcoats. For the new Hudson, I used Testor's one-stage lacquer and then sprayed Tamiya Clear Red. The result came out pretty good. Then for the hood, Tamiya Gunmetal with a coat of Tamiya Smoke on top. Again, I liked the results. My biggest challenge with this is the bare metal foil. I thought I had sanded the trim smooth but after applying the foil, I could still see some particles poking out of the trim. Aaargh!! Kind of defeats the purpose of having a nice paint job. I think my next step will be t
  16. Not my usual subject for modeling, but enjoyed the build.
  17. Had fun with this model and loved the graphics.
  18. Hi. Here's work in progress on Tamiya's Mazda. Seems like it's taking forever, but now that the engine is in pretty good shape, the rest of it should go quick.
  19. Hi. Here's the Moebius '61 Pontiac Ventura. Love the wheels on this thing. I broke the windshield trying to get it to fit, but Moebius customer service was great. They sent me a new one quickly.

    Dome Zero

    Hi. Just finished the Dome Zero racer by Fujimi. Thanks to MCM Ohana Dale Beaver who posted some pictures way back and served as an inspiration for some of the detail work. A difficult build - but they all seem difficult lately!
  21. I like to look for unusual models, like Fujima's Nissan Skyline GT-R KPGC10 race car. Unfortunately, it's a curbside. So i took the engine from the Tamiya skyline and transplanted it. Here's the result: Then there is the Esci Ertl Ford Escort RS1800. It's a clear body kit. The tooling was not so great. But, I painted it white and acquired some Rothman livery decals. Interesting model...tough to build.
  22. Couple of Birds, Allison and Marcis
  23. Hi..long time modeler, first time posting. Used to hang around George Barris' shop as a kid in North Hollywood, been building models ever since - with some hiatus of course. Looking forward to joining the forum. I attached a couple of photos for reference. I have a specific question about decals, but will post that to the appropriate board. Regards, Doug Wintz
