  1. First off if you look closely the head lamp lens isn’t missing it’s there and can be clearly seen. Secondly, what bothers you with the seatbelts, well they are actually harnesses not seatbelts. So where else would you suggest I put them. If you look at a lot of cars fitted with “harnesses” this is where they put them.
  2. Cheers Bill, yep your right it is assigned to a car, it also belongs to the new owner of this car. The owners car isn’t a 350Z it’s a 370Z Nismo. Hopefully we are gonna get a photo of the two cars together pretty soon.
  3. Hi there folks, I’ve havent been on, on a while as I’ve been building this for a former workmate. This build is almost an OOB build other than the addition of Tamiya’s PE Upgrade Kit. The car was painted in Zero Paints Nissan Ivory Pearl and clear coated using Zero Paints 2K Diamond Finish Clear Coat. overall it’s was an easy is build, and I’m pleased with the finish. I hope you all like it as well. Cheers.
  4. Cheers folks you comments are very much appreciated. This by far is my favourite build I’ve done so far. Glad you all like it.
  5. Cheers Keith. The Reji decals I used in my opinion were probably the best decals I’ve used. They are very thin though.
  6. Hi there folks this is my latest build.

Hobby Design Tyre Valves 5. Main body painted in Zero Paints Winfield Red, & clear coated using Zero Paints 2K Diamond Finish. 6. Remainder of the car was painted using various Tamiya and Vallejo Acrylic Paints. Anyway hope you all like it. Cheers David
  7. Cheers folks, yeh Bill that was deliberate, just another part that’s been altered
  8. Hi there folks I haven’t posted anything for a while, but I’ve been busy building a few projects. This is my latest finished build which is a Birthday present for my nephew. Here are the details. Kit:- 1/24 Hasegawa VW T2 23 Window Bus. Paint:- Zero Paints VW Turkis Green and VW Pearl White, clear coated using Zero Paints Diamond Finish Clear Coat. Additions:- Highlight Model Studio Front Safari Windows and rear number plate surround. Bare Metal Foil on the front and rear bumpers. Modifications:- The Bus has been lowered all the way round, by simply modifying the kit suspension. Anyway that’s it, thanks for popping by and having a look.
  9. Hi there I know the kit only came with a V8. I honestly didn’t know Audi did a real R8 GT road car, thus this was never intended to be a copy of a real Audi R8 GT. If it was going by images I’ve looked at on the net, the body shape, side blades, interior seats,rear wing, wheels, front splitter etc etc all wrong. Like most custom models, it’s my interpretation of how I’d like a R8 GT to look like, so as I have said it was never ever intended to be a reproduction of the R8 GT V10.
  10. It was mixed by Steve at Hiroboy on demand. I asked him to mix it up for me.
  11. Cheers for all the comments folks, it’s very much appreciated. Lawes87, the carbon decal on the roof is Scale Motorsport’s Hi Def weave in 1/20 Scale. The rest of the carbon is from Tamiya’s own carbon decal kit for the LaFerrari.
  12. Cheers Matt, that’s great, I’m still a bit off from that stage. If you are on Facebook have a look at my site DH Modelworx and you’ll see pics of my build. I’ve still to add build pics on here.
  13. Hi there this is another build I’ve finished recently, Revell’s 1/24 Audi R8. This one was a lengthy build, because due to house renovations I didn’t do any building between July and November. I started this car in June 2017 and finished it in Jan 2018.This kit isn’t Revell’s greatest offerings and required a fair bit of work, I could go on and on about the repairs I had to do to the shell.Anyway I hope you all like it. CheersKit :- 1/24 Revell Audi R8Paint Exterior:- Zero Paints Lamborghini Blu Caelum, Zero Paints 2K Diamond Finish Clear Coat.Paint Interior:- Tamiya and Vallejo AcrylicsUpgrades and Alterations:- Both side blades extended. Suspension lowered. Homemade front spitter. Various items covered in Scale Motorsport Carbon Fibre Decals. Aoshima Advan GT Wheels and Tyres. Hobby Design rear spoiler and real metal decals.
  14. Hi there folks this is the 2nd of 3 Tamiya Ferrari LaFerrari’s I’ve built to date.This car was originally going to be painted in Ferrari Giallo Modena (yellow), but a late change of minds from myself and my nephew saw it painted in Audi Nardo Grey. The car now belongs to my nephew.I know this colour will most certainly devide opinion, but myself and my nephew like it as it’s certainly different.Anyway thanks for looking cheers.Kit :- 1/24 Tamiya Ferrari LaFerrari Paint Exterior:- Zero Paints Audi Nardo Grey, with Ferrari Giallo Modena Pin Stripe. Zero Paints 2K Diamond Finish Clear Coat.Paint Interior:- Tamiya and Vallejo AcrylicsUpgrades:- Tamiya Carbon Kit, Carbon Decals from Scale Motorsport, Wheel Valves from Hobby Design
