Scale I Build

  1. Hey, everyone!, I havent posted in quite a while, and because i've been on a SBing frenzy, i ran out of alot of supplies which are now delayed because of strange weather. I do however, have enough supplies to mess about building my own hyper car. I decided to take ideas from many of my favorite cars, and incorperate them into one design. My initial inspiration is from early Porsche LeMans cars, and its been evolving from there. As you can see, it has a VERY aggressive German industrial look, so it needed a good, aggressive name to match, and thats when i came up with; Blitzkrieg
  2. Hello there peeps! First of all, let me introduce myself - I am Mihai, from Romania and I'm 24. I was in love with cars ever since I was a small cellular body - looking at them, drawing them, memorizing names, reading technical books before i even knew how to read because the technical drawings seemed fascinating to me, you name it. But, like every kid from Eastern Europe, annoyed by my parents answering the question "Can I have that nice, expensive model car?" with "No", I decided to start building my own models - at the age of 6. Initially build out of cardboard boxes and whee
  3. Hello everybody. I've been building models since I was about 8 or 9. I am now 26. My model builds have been mostly out of box and maybe a little kit bashing occasionally. I was wondering what would be some good ideas for ways I can expand from just building out of box. Please keep in mind that I don't have a lot of money or resources. There are not too many hobby shops in my area. Hobby lobby is perhaps the closest and Hobbytown USA is almost 50 miles away.
  4. I picked up this kit for $40 dollars Australian. It had been "started" but not much had been done. I decided that I wanted a kit to practice my scratch building skills on, because I had been attempting to scratch bulid an Australian TD Gemini, and reached the limit of my skills and so figured I'd try to fix a kit up, and also in a larger scale so I could get used to making things in a bigger scale before aiming again at completing the 1/25 scale project. So the bandai kit is very basic. I refuse to say bad, because I think you get what you pay for most of the time, and I was prepared in adv
  5. Sixties Sam pointed out the lack of a gas tank on my go-kart. I had intended to build one, but it got lost in the details and I failed to do so. So now, to do things absolutely backwards, I will be doing a WIP after the under glass post which can be found here: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=46225 A translucent white plastic tank would probably be more appropriate, but I had the look of metal in my mind, so that's what it will be. I will also add a bit more detail, so the plan is as follows: 1. gas tank, filler cap and mounting platform 2. brake line and master cylinder 3. fuel li
  6. Started this one about a year ago using an AMT 29 Ford roadster kit I picked up at the 09 Kustom Kemps Lead Sled Spectacular in Salina, Ks. After a year of off and on building, she's finally done. Unfortunately, the weather wasn't very good today, so I had to settle for some indoor shots with less than ideal lighting. I appreciate everyones interest that followed along with my WIP. It can be seen here: http://www.modelcars...showtopic=22135
