Scale I Build

Found 9 results

  1. Finally finished one from the old stash! I had to re-do the paint after there was a reaction with the plastic even after Duplicolor primer, sigh
  2. Last month I was looking for some 1/24 diecast Porsches and came across Raystar diecasts. They have mostly late model European cars and SUVs in both static and R/C versions. Then came the surprise, a Volvo XC 60 like the one in my driveway. Did not expect to see that. Very happy to add that one to my collection.
  3. Volvo C202 from 1979 in nice condition, by the red color and the black and white rims it used to belong to the fire department.
  4. Hi guys! I just got this decal and photoetch nightmare finished.. Had some dust problems with clear coating, but i got good enough results to fix them. I used aftermarket decals to make this fictional race car on A group, so John Player Special theme for this car is from my head, there is not 1:1 Volvo around there just like this. Also i used detailing set for this, what is selled separately. and i have already plans for 4 Volvos to build, all fictional race cars again.. But less talk and more photos.. Enjoy Link to WIP, check it out for more detailing photos of interior and chassis:
  5. Hello! I have new project again.. Im doing this as fictional race car with John Player Special paint theme.. Interior is almost done, now i just have to wait PE-parts to arrive so i can continue with it.. Body is untouched yet and chassis is under construction but nothing much to show at them..
  6. Finaly wrapped this one up. It's the old Italeri kit # 735. I got it for a steal on Ebay a few years ago, and started it late winter. Built it box stock with no additional detailing. Turned out okay. I have to say, I'm not a fan of multi piece bodies! And I found some of the details really fiddly and tricky. Like the rear cab fairing supports. Those were a bugger to get right! And some of the engine details didn't fit quite right. Like the air cleaner assembly. Using the stock holes and slots in the frame wouldn't have worked, as the front inner fender, air cleaner, and intake pipe to the turbo were not all lining up, so I had to cut some tabs and move things around to make them fit. Other than that, no issues to speak of. Paint is Tamiya right from the can; TS-18 Metallic Red, TS-38 Gunmetal. The chassis and trim are four different shades of black. The bulk of which is a Duplicolour bumper paint. The headlights and tail lights were BMF'd before being applied. All in all, I'm fairly happy with how it turned out. Next kit though will hopefully be something smaller, without the multi-piece body!
  7. Started up this build lately, i might get it finished before christmas, i think i must hurry up with it...
  8. Had some fun with this build, it kind of created it self while i did seek ideas what i could use.. Mix of decals i had and so on.. Best part of this hobby, havin fun Cheers...
