  1. Cracking job on both kits John. The Abarth especially. The garage backdrop is good idea. Makes them look more life-like. Bravo, Nick
  2. So let me get this straight. You do 1:1 modelling at work and the other smaller scales at home! Good luck with that one. Nick
  3. I've no idea what car or even vehicle this is based on!
  4. Thanks John Yes trying to show the actual colours is very difficult with my phone camera. Paint being metallic doesn't help either. Nick
  5. I've seen a few modellers do that with a super sharp blade and then use microsol to push the decal into the panel line. Definitely helps. Nick
  6. Evening all Thanks for the tips! Here is the result of the trial. Not perfect but then again I just wanted to prove out the method. I'll be about more careful on the real thing. Surgery on the better body has started. I also found the proper colour mix (I hope! ) On the right is Mr hobby blue green metallic paint. On the left is 3 parts blue green and 1 part blue metallic. I always felt the Brittany blue green from Honda was blue with a green tint rather than that other way around. Photo is not great from a
  7. Good progress John. Those red seats really make the interior pop! Nick
  8. Thanks Spiny for the info. I have a nikkon D3100 which in auto mode is fantastic. I do have a macro mos but again it is automatic. There is a manual mode eher I can set ISO and f number but I ended up with shots where the white background looked blue! I probably should download the manual to make sure I am using the settings properly... Nick
  9. Thanks gents. Guess I need to get some styrene then!
  10. Yep sorry didn't know about that...found the function.... I won't report it again if someone has kindly already done it.
  11. Wow that is stunning! Thanks for looking the advice. What did you use for the back. I'm guessing some kind of plastic? Thanks, Nick
  12. Thank you very much all! . I'll let the camera take the credit for the photography! I did try to follow the method Spiny had described in his Jaguar RFI post but couldn't replicate his setup (don't know much about cameras...) @Spiny here you go: the next one
  13. Hi all Straight onto the next one! I used to own a MK4 Prelude. Loved that car. After seeing John's Prelude build it got me thinking was there a model of the MK4 and there was! Have to admit the first one I managed to win on eBay was this one which is exactly what my car looked like. Now I know the tyres were missing but unfortunately so were a couple more bits and the model itself was not in very good condition. So when I saw the Aoshima version come up I snapped it up! Good thing about that is that the mod
  14. Hi Mods Could you please remove this post. Manage to post it twice! Thanks Nick Hi all Straight onto the next one! I used to own a MK4 Prelude. Loved that car.
