  1. Thanks for your kind words everyone Kit is far from perfect but was wonderful compared to the Airfix 1/32 E-Type I’m currently working on .... (see https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm%20airfix%20etype)
  2. Well done spotting my deliberate error Built this last summer, post most of my builds to Twitter so this has been seen elsewhere and you're the first to point that out I'm embarrassed now, it was meant to be a T but as you say, wrong end ..... Will correct shortly!
  3. Not posted stuff on BM recently but am planning on rectifying that now 1/24 Revell 1968 Dodge Charger Other than adding plug wires all plastic is as it comes out of the box I used the 'salt weathering' technique that the AFV modellers often deploy, started with MIG Ammo Rust Set which was varnished, salted then applied top coat of Vallejo Game Air green. After masking was removed various Vallejo washes were applied and MIG Ammo Ultra Matt Varnish Interior 'wood' is hand painted acrylics with Tamiya clear yellow on top, chrome is Molotow pen WIP Pictures: https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm%20revell%20charger Loads more pics here if you are interested: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipPSA_HQjWAElnxkrEeitfZfo7iD-mCoZ3rMVN8PcSODgs_fNHfkDakv3urQmicYPg?key=SWRVT1FHOVFhdjBtcElYZWg5RmdYSGw3MGV0UURn
  4. Not posted stuff on BM recently but am planning on rectifying that now First up, 1/24 Italeri (ex-Esci) Mk 2 Escort RS1800 Kit is of its time but other than the roll cage fit\stance being odd quite pleased with result Body paint is Tamiya TS spray, window surrounds are permanent marker. Other than adding plug wires and a printed reg plate it's as per box contents Inspiration was real one seen at the annual South Downs Stages held at Goodwood circuit WIP Pictures: https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm italeri escort
  5. Great build Doing one one of these myself as a clubman car, lots of flash and mould marks needed clean up before paint
  6. Done some white ones ... Working on an Italeri (ex-Esci tool) Mk2 Escort at the moment but will be onto a 959 soon - that doesn't suit blue IMHO. Will be something like this one at Goodwood last year
  7. Thanks for your kind words team Also done a 986 Boxster (Revell) and 930 Turbo (Tamiya), I like blue Porsches ....
  8. Finished this build of Tamiya Porsche 996 GT3 kit from 2001, a reworking of their standard 996 which was issued in 1998 which usefully still includes the original bumper which I used for a smoother look replacing the chunkier GT3 one. I also omitted the side skirts for same reason. I’m not a fan of yellow so went for Tamiya TS-44 Brilliant Blue over Tamiya white Fine Surface Primer. After 2 weeks drying the body was finished with 6000/8000/12000 micro mesh cloths (used wet with a hard foam block) and then Autoglym polish to add a bit of shine. Interior is Tamiya TS satin black, window frames and other black trim finished with Sharpie and Staedtler permenant markers. Indicators and rear light clusters were brushed with Tamiya clear Orange\Red and then had rear reflector area filled in with Molotow chrome pen. Engine\Chassis details are Vallejo acrylics; number plates are printed onto photopaper with UK number plate font WIP Here: https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm 996 gt3&src=typd More pictures here: http://blog.cjhm.net/2019/07/19/1-24-porsche-996-gt3/
  9. Thanks for all your kind words team This is Typhoon with the old Airfix Tempest V (ex Heller mould I think)
  10. This is the 2019 boxing of the lovely 1/72 kit from Airfix which includes the appropriate June 1944 markings seen here. I built this for a Twitter based Group Build, #DDAYGB which has just finished. Put together OOB, paint is all by brush, Lifecolor acrylics for the camouflage and then details using Lifecolor\Citadel\Vallejo. Glossed with Vallejo before the decals and a final few coats of Mig Ammo matt to finish with Vallejo light\dark grey washes to add a lightly used look. Hope you enjoy More pics here: http://blog.cjhm.net/2019/06/08/1-72-airfix-hawker-typhoon-d-day-1944/ Work in progress pics here: https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm airfix typhoon&src=typd See stuff the other members of our group did: https://twitter.com/search?q=ddaygb;src=typd Excellent video from our ‘leader’ here:
  11. Well a Eunos Roadster kit from 1989 actually Main paint is Tamiya TS43 British Racing Green, brighter than I expected but quite pleased with finish after light going over of some dust flecks with Micromesh 6000\8000\12000 cloths and a bit of Autoglym car polish Interior is TS46 Light Sand with details in Lifecolor and Citadel acrylics Number plates were created in Photoshop using UK font then printed on photo paper Window surrounds are Sharpie permanent marker and chrome details by Molotow pen Hope you enjoy WIP Here: https://twitter.com/search?q=cjhm %23tamiya %23mazda&src=typd More pictures here: http://blog.cjhm.net/2019/05/16/1-24-tamiya-mazda-mx5/
