  1. Great build Doing one one of these myself as a clubman car, lots of flash and mould marks needed clean up before paint
  2. 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
  3. Thanks for your kind words team Also done a 986 Boxster (Revell) and 930 Turbo (Tamiya), I like blue Porsches ....
  4. 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/
  5. Thanks for all your kind words team This is Typhoon with the old Airfix Tempest V (ex Heller mould I think)
  6. 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:
