Scale I Build

  1. Another one in the 'ancient history' series, I built this one in the summer of 1989 and then took it to the Dallas Southwest Challenge in November, my first-ever attendance at a national model car contest. I was pleased as punch when quite a nice photo of it appeared in the June 1990 issue of, well, the other magazine. It's a basic combo of Jo-Han's 1964 Caddy from the windshield back (except for the interior) and a Testors (Fujimi) BMW M6. In those days I had a beef about the necessity of passenger side mirrors, thus it never had one, but now I advocate having them. Unlike my later models which were covered with PPG Deltron clear, this one was rattlecan Krylon refrigerator white covered with Krylon crystal clear, which has yellowed quite a bit over time. Although the paint looks acceptable in these bright sunlit photos, trust me on this, it's worse in person. The rear plate is actually a small part of some magazine ad where the "Ultimate Driving Machine" words happened to be the prefect size to fit into that recess. I had fun getting the interior to look crisp, but my skills at that time were inadequate to yield either a realistic undercarriage or an openable hood, so what I ended up with was an entertaining curbside model. My preference is to disassemble it sometime soon, have the long side trim pieces as separate installable items, clean up a couple of other shortcomings, and re-shoot the paint as a nice pearl white. Would be neat to have a functioning hood and the BMW V12 engine. What I have in there now is just a moderately detailed Caddy V8 and the hood has been long stuck closed.
  2. Traded this a while back,was missing wheels other then this nice and complete. The instructions and some other clues i have found makes this an 1986 issue. So there where plenty of pinmarks and other small imperfections to fill and sand. Anyway,i got the idea og this car from a good friend of mine,we where talking about cars,and older BMW models,and he said i always dreamed about a white "sharknose" with more modern wheels on. So this kit came to mind and i ordered some wheels for it,it was nervous they could be to big,but i think they look good. They are replica of BBS LM 19",the lip on the rears are a tiny bit wider then on front,pefect! The paint is Tamiya,also white primer was used. This white color is way more bright white then the "Racing White" wich is kinda cream. I tried detail under the hood a little. Beside the wheels the model is 100% stock,even the ride hight. I`m no huge BMW fanatic myself,but this model for sure would be on my top 5 list of BMW. This is the M model with the 286hp straight six out of the legendary BMW M1,wich also found it`s way into the 5 series (e28) aka M5. Ok,enough chit chat. Btw wheels and tires are from Scale Production.de I have not shown it to him yet,but i hope he will like it. Just needs a little bit of black on the side window molding first. Here are some pictures.
