  1. Anothrer favourite subject in a larger scale, the Tamiya Lotus 49b of Graham Hill. Another great kit that is a pleasure to build.
  2. Lotus 99T

    I got back into the model building hobby a few months ago after a 15+ year hiatus. I've focused on 1/72nd aircraft till now but decided I'd also enjoy getting back into building race cars. I get the most enjoyment from 1/43rd scale cars, though it seems to be a dying niche for kit builders. Picked up this U.K. Made Formula One models Lotus 99T on eBay. I've finished it as Senna's car from I'm not sure what particular race. It's built box stock with exception of making the seat belt labels from some scrap decal and paint. Finished in Tamiya Camel yellow and two part urethane clear. I generally prefer curbside kits such as most Tameo, BBR or Provence Moulage, but I did enjoy painting up the engine bits for this one.

  6. Was looking at the Studio27 website and came across this... http://studio27onlineshop.com/shopdetail/000000005819/ I had no idea this was coming. Too expensive for me though. Now, can they make a Britten?
  7. Hi everyone, Here are some pictures of my second F1 model. I tackled the Ebbro Lotus 49 in 1/20, Ebbro's first kit. I used Indycals to finish this as the Rob Walker Racing Team privately-entered car. Swiss ace Jo Siffert drove this car in the first half of 1968 season. He drove the car in this guise in the 1968 Belgian Grand Prix, where he failed to finish. After a string of DNF's, the 49 was replaced by a winged 49B that Siffert would use to win the British Grand Prix that year. I used Tamiya TS-55 through an airbrush for the Rob Walker blue. I stripped the chrome and sprayed Alclad chrome over the shiny bits. The rest of the car was finished up with Vallejo acrylics and Testors metallizer. Scratchbuilt bits include brake lines, spark plug wires, fuel lines, and a brass radiator pipe. It was a very fiddly and often frustrating build, but an impressive kit nonetheless. I will definitely be trying some of Ebbro's newer kits in the future. I particularly liked that I didn't have to mess with doing belts - Siffert never had them in the car! Comments and critiques always welcome. Thanks for looking, Jake
  8. I've started this new kit of a fascinating but short-lived car from my favourite F1 team. It's the first Ebbro kit I've tried and so far it looks good. I went for the Essex livery as I like the blue, although I may end up with the Courage black and chrome 88B too if this build goes well. The kit comes with both plain blue plastic for the chrome side panels and chrome decals, plus a chromed plastic set, giving several options on these parts. Following a thread on the F1M website I'm going for the blue panels and adding chrome decals. I'm hoping that someone will come out with a carbon decal set as I still haven't found a sheet of carbon decals that exactly match the carbon used on the tub. I'm sure there will be plenty of aftermarket parts for these two cars in the near future, with Acu.Stion announcing lots of detail parts already. I went with Tamiya TS-50 for the Essex blue and it's a lovely colour (I don't know how accurate it is but it does look nice!) Here's a link to the kit and Hobby Search's usual very helpful photos of the kit and instructions: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10324889 I took advantage of a sunny winter's day to put a coat of Mica Blue on the upper body cowl. That's about all I've done so far! That's it for now. I also need to finish my Aoshima McLaren F1 GTR so progress may be slow. It's winter here in Australia and my spray booth is in the shed so I need warm days for spraying and the Mac needs a gloss coat. I plan to wait for a decent carbon decal set before finishing the tub on the Lotus, so let's hope someone brings one out soon! Cheers, Kev.
  9. As the title says its the Tamiya Lotus 99T. I'm not one for fine detailing things(dont have the skill yet), so to spice things up a bit i bought the Studio 27 Carbon decal set, a set of Camel decals (because they never look right without the ciggie ones) and a Goodyear tyre stencil to spray onto the tyres for that little bit of authenticity Really nice kit to build, except for the rear wing causing me massive problems. It cant be completely built and then attached to the engine it has to be built onto the engine so i had to part build it, spray then try and attach to the engine. When glue and paint mix you know what happens then once fitted i noticed it was wonky so i had to break it apart and have another go making even more mess with the glue. Doesnt notice too much in the photos but can be seen slightly on the inside of the end plates. The silver paint on the "Honda" on the engine isnt great either, im just no good at fine details that small I used all Tamiya paints and body was sprayed using Tamiya rattle cans. Hope you enjoy, thanks for looking.
  10. Rob Walker Lotus 72C

    I'm deliberately trying to step out of my comfort zone. As a first step I built a Renault RE30B in the recent French Fancy GB. Emboldened by that, I thought I would have a go at another Formula 1 car. So this is my first post in the vehicles section of BM. I hope you'll be gentle with me. My problem is that I tend to get a bit obsessed with things... I also like to build a series of models which show how things evolve and develop over a period of time. So with those two things in mind, here is a long term project I intend to work on over the next five years or so. I hope to show the development of Lotus Formula 1 cars. Have a gander at The Stash... I did mention obsession, didn't I? So I think I will kick off with a Lotus 72. The JPS Lotus 72 is probably my all time favourite Formula 1 car but I'll leave that one until I get a few of these under my belt. So here goes nothing...
  11. For the last week or two I have been building the Lotus Esprit Sport 300. I am a big fan of British cars and the Esprit was a favourite of mine during the 90's (still like it ). The engine is mostly finished and I am now working on the chassis. The engine has not been glued to the chassis yet, just put it there for the photos. This kit has been a joy to build so far, especially compared to the E-Type I built before this one.
  12. Working my way through the excellent Ebbro kit but I am in need of a suitable dull, semi matt gold paint for the wheels, preferably brushable. Does anyone know of a decent match for the kit decals? I figure Zero or some such do an exact match but looking for a more readily available option?
