Scale I Build

  1. Hey everyone!, this is gonna be my first ever large scale build......and my last. A friend of mine gave me this kit, and I said that I don't normally do large scale, but if I did, it would be a Countach, so here I am! I say "upgrade", because EVERYBODY builds this kit as the kit specifies...….NOT me, I will be turning it into a later model 500s, while getting inspiration from the lesser-known Twin Turbo prototype, so there will be a TON of scratchbuilding involved! -thanks for checking it out!
  2. Base kit is the Otaki Lamborghini Cheetah, a basic motorized model that is sort of collectible. This vehicle was a prototype that Lamborghini created, in the hopes of landing a US military contract, several were built, only one survived. It had a Chrysler V8, not a Lamborghini engine, so I thought it would be wicked to sort of stay authentic with the Dodge Hellcat engine. There is some good reference material, a few of the most useful photos I'll post up front. Suspension was torsion bars. Looks like they made the bell housing going down to the transmission. What I don't see is a rad
  3. Since I'm burned out on three hero WIP, wanted to knock a Box Stock out before year's end. Had the chance to get these two kits, boxes are not in good shape, the Testors was terrible to begin with so it will not be saved. Same mold, the Gunze has the battery terminals but no motor (have a few laying around if I wanted), instructions show light bulbs for the front lights but no bulbs, the Cheetah kit had some so I will snag those. I find it amusing how the Testors model is poorly built, missing mirrors, top not set in enough, light lenses askew. I will paint a different color, think
  4. Calling this done. How does the line in Christine go, "You can't polish a 💩"? Gunze - Sangyo motorized era. The real car, this one is the prototype. Beginning of the side light mandate, before battering ram bumpers were required. It sort of bombed, but just because of rarity, they are desirable. The kit doesn't do it justice. This is just before the Countach stole the show. Popular color was refrigerator white, bumpers were black. 😴 The right box was trashed, that is what was sacrificed, but was able to create a scale box from the remains. The red plastic bled through Tamiya putt
  5. A subject I would like to build, but come on, not a cartoon! They have some interesting subjects, too bad they are not realistic. If I'm going to spend precious time, it's gonna be accurate. Hobby Search is the source.
  6. This week I will be starting to build my Lamborghini Miura. This photo shows how it will look when its done.....hope you enjoy!
  7. I couldnt take photos of this until i had thoroughly cleaned my model room...so here he is finally...hope you like it! God bless!!!
  8. Hey, everyone! I bought this kit because i wanted to see why so many people out there still build this when there are the VERY nice Aoshima kits out there. Having built a couple of the Aoshima versions, i will go through this one, and do a mostly part-by-part direct comparison. Believe it or not, but there are some things that Fujimi did better. -Photo 2; This is how mine will look. -Photo 3-5; I think that Fujimis headlamps are detailed better...are easier to attach, but dont have a separate clear lens like Aoshimas. -Photo 6; The wavy line shows the size of the part....dont kn
  9. As i am doing with my Fujimi Aventador, this too i will compare part by part, which kit is better -Aoshima, or Fujimi. I've built 15 Fujimi Countach's in my time, and i actually like this kit waaaay better for the reasons you will learn. I'm not concerned about undercarriage detail, but everything else WILL be uber detailed! -Photo 2; This is how mine will hopefully look when done......i'm usually heck with white -my nemesis. -Photo 3; Heres the start of the undercarriage parts...All the Sharpie marks are molded-in hoses, and pipes that i will be grinding away.Fujimi wins in t
  10. Hey, everyone!, its been a while since i've posted here, but the Reventon i finished a while ago is finally here....enjoy!
  11. Hey, everyone!, This is my Fujimi Lamborghini Reventon build......obviously...lol, Even though its only a curbside, I will be detailing the interior to make it look like the real car, since things are missing, or not done right. I even have a technique that replicates Lamborghinis special leather called; Alcantara. I will also show how I take a one-piece engine, and still make it look convincingly real. Hope you enjoy!
  12. Small detour from building a 1/8 Ferrari, this Lambo. Will be fairly straight OOB I am going to go Splash Lava Orange with it, here are my inspirations
  13. Hey everybody! Thank you all for following my Pagani!!, now its time to get back to these little beauties......hope you stop in!!
  14. Hi everyone, For the first time in about a year I'm starting a new kit. This is also the first time I am posting on a forum, so keep that in mind. I got myself the full engine kit of the Veneno (very hard and expensive to come by in Germany) My hopes are maybe a few tips, a few people who like to stick around and maybe someone I can talk model stuff with My skills are rusty and never been a pro. The kit will be hand-printed...no spray cans or airbrush (no location)
  15. Hi folks, I'd like to show another one I built some time ago. This was actually the first model I finished when I got back into modelling in 2016 after a 20 year hiatus (so please be mercyful on your judgement). I had seen lots of scratch builds on the internet back then and I had the urge to try some of that on my own. As a result, I built the ROG Lambo (this one: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/155383-revell-07351-lamborghini-diablo-sv) and added quite some scratch-building, mostly in order to create some kind of a "raceday look". I used Evergreen parts in order to make an ove
  16. Hi folks, I would like to show you this one which I finished around 1 year ago. So right about that, Dann! The reason why I chose the Italeri over the Fujimi is... I don't know! In fact, I like the body shape of the Italeri a bit more, it's a bit wider in the front area, maybe more massive. The Fujimi probably is more true to scale, but I don't know. Anyways, I had bought the Italeri second-hand (some of the body parts were glued but that was all) so it was available. I have the Fujimi Anniversary Countach kit too, but only the non-EM kit without the engine. As I wanted to do one
  17. Hello, everyone!, this is my Aoshima Lamborghini Aventador. I love the "stealthy" look on him, I used 3D decal emblems on the bonnet, steering wheel, and centercaps. I carefully cut the side glass out, since I don't really like them up on my builds, I also left off the taillight lense covers.....I don't really like them on it either. This is Aoshima's "full engine detail" kit which actually translates to; A lot of engine stuff, but not everything....the lower-end is missing. Still, with the outstanding way they designed it, the awesome detail of the parts, and the fact that these kinds of auto
  18. Hello, i will show my Lamborghini. Thema Inspiration was a John Sibal picture. Alle body parts are 3D printed. Sorry for my bad english.
  19. I'm surprised nobody has come out with a transverse V12 engine for the Lambo Miura. Seems like all the kits have only the top, and pan of the engine. Please prove me wrong!
  20. So i just finished this model, looks good in general, some small mistakes, luckily they are pretty much all on the right side of the car, i should therefore just display it showing the right side i guess Although the big SV sticker looks better on the right, i got so annoyed with the left side sticker i just left it like it is, as it just wouldnt move anymore and didnt want to rip it in pieces moving it anymore... big decals are a pain in the ***
  21. So i have no clue wether this should be under the workbench or glass section as its completed but ill post some building pic's also. The build of my Diablo VT Fully painted with 3 layers of the TS-89 spraycan Final assembly: Completed (although still needs polishing and decals): Quite happy with the outcome of it, must say Revell is alot less detailed than im used to from Tamiya (steering dont work for example), but its fun as a "quick build" depending on how far you go with paint etc...
  22. I saw a picture of this car on the internet and when Studio 27 came out with the decals and light bar kit,it was a no brainer. The kit is the Fujimi Aventador LP 700-4 . The kit is fantastic . Has all the photo-etch and a sheet of laser printed details( dash face ,wheels logos and the side badges) The trans kit is from Studio27. They make the kits for all the different cars. I added a few carbon details here and there. Scale Motorsports carbon was used. A fun build and something different for the shelf.
  23. A few taken to experiment with a new photography set-up which I thought I'd share: bestest, M.
  24. Hello, I've been looking through my grandfather stuff during Christmas (Grandpa passed away 25 years ago) and I've found something interesting. He was collecting train models TT and N, but in dozens of boxes containing those I've found two OTAKI Plastic Models. These are Alfa Romeo Coupe 33 and Lamborghini Miura P400. Both are 1:16 scale and are in PERFECT condition, they were never opened nor used. As they are something around 30-40 years old I think they might be pretty valuable, that's why I am not planning to build them, but to sell them. Do you know how much may they cost? I mean, I've s
