  1. This will be my first car as all my previous efforts have been AFVs, tanks or military aircraft where I can disguise my poor modelling skills as “battle damage.” This is a bit of a special project for me and I have been putting it off for some time to practice my skills on other more basic models. My aim is to make a scale model of the 1989 Trabant Kombi that I own. The Trabant has had a terrible press over the years for being basic, badly designed and poorly built. I am biased, but I think the Trabant is a very well designed little car that suited its market when it came out in 1
  2. Here is the next model to cross my workbench. Or rather, here are the next models. One of the joys of returning to the hobby after a long absence is that I keep discovering cars I like that were produced in 1:24 kit form (which is my preferred scale). The Tamiya Fiat Abarth 695 "esse esse" was one such happy discovery last year and I should have known that there would also be a standard Fiat 500 kit out there; I found two of the Fiat kits for sale on eBay recently (you wait ages for a rare kit to turn up, etc. etc.). I knew the Abarth was complete, the Fiat was sold as complete but with so
  3. This has been complete for a while, but I wanted to take some decent photos and decided to build a backdrop for future photographs as well (appropriately enough the Fujimi 1:24 garage). As a kit it's OK, it's pretty basic, there is no engine and the underside is a complete work of fiction. It's a bit of a gimmick that you can steer the front and rear wheels to simulate the four-wheel steering of the real car, I'd trade that for some accurately modelled suspension, especially as I'm not sure the wheels sit quite right
  4. I got a Tamiya Volvo 850 for a fair price on e-bay a few months back but didn't have a plan, until I went to the local Police station open day last week, and spoke to a chap with a very nice collection of preserved Police cars, he mentioned he had a Volvo from the Central Motorways Policing Group, a quick search pulled up some pictures of his car and a plan hatched! I'm not planning an exact copy of this car, but it will be similar as I've seen a lot of photos online and the livery and layout varied car to car. I grabbed the kit from the stash, and was shocked, no right hand drive dash! Ou
  5. I can't remember exactly when I bought this kit, but it could easily be fifteen to twenty years ago. Thanks to a messed up paint job it ended up being shoved into storage but I found it when sorting out my loft during lock down and decided it was high time for one last rescue attempt. Thanks to people on here for tips on stripping and repainting and for replacement decals. This is the thread covering the rebuild. I started it so long ago there are no photos of the early stage of the build. Anyway, I set up my "photo studio" to take some pretty pictures.
  6. This is the last of my long-term builds; started over ten years ago and stalled due to house moves and other priorities. This is the WIP topic: As a Tamiya kit it goes together pretty well, except for the front bumper, which needed a lot of hacking about to make it fit and it's still not quite right. Although I started the build before I'd even heard of this forum, I picked up a few tips and ideas that encouraged me to add a few extra details as a result of reading the forum. The main thing was going find pictures of real Preludes and trying to replicate what I saw.
  7. Hi there, a bit of an odd/obscure question but I've tried searching the forum and wider internet to little avail. How different are the Tamiya kits for the Toyota Celsior and Lexus LS400? I assume it's just a case of different badges and possibly colour options in the instructions? It also looks like the LS is LHD and the Celsior is RHD. I did see a nice RFI thread for a Toyota Celsior build, so I know that it comes together into a nice model and I know a shop that has a couple of Celsior kits on the shelf (how long have they been there?), but I'm also tempted by a LS
  8. Between 1998 and 2008 I owned a number of Honda Preludes; three third generation and one fifth generation model. I've not seen any models of either type although I understand there is a rare kit of the 3rd gen Prelude out there somewhere. This Tamiya kit of the 2nd generation Honda Prelude was picked up from a small model shop in Evesham when I saw it at a reasonable price. The appearance didn't change much between the 2nd and 3rd generation models, although few parts were carried over and an uncle of mine had one of these 2nd gen cars many years ago. The main parts
  9. This has been sitting in an unfinished state for many years since I messed up the paint on the body. I chose yellow for the body and picked up a can of Humbrol enamel spray from the model shop when I bought the kit. Unfortunately it went on so thick that it looked like I'd used household gloss paint. At least I can check out paint stripping on the sprue before attacking the main body. In the past I've tried sanding back and respraying but it probably needs stripping back to the plastic. There is also a crack in the windscreen pilla
  10. While going through my loft I found some models I put together when I was between about 12 and 16; about 28-32 years ago. I think it's fair to say that my desire to get things finished far outweighed my patience and desire to do a good job. I also found some models that I must have started and maybe even finished at least ten years ago. As I'm new here I thought it might be good to put them all in one thread. My preference is for 1:24 or 1:25 scale kits and I think Tamiya was the easiest brand to get although I have a few others. I tended to get the cars that appealed to me, rather than f
  11. This is my recently completed 1:24 scale panel van (the one with the jägermeister box art). This kit has a number of firsts for me- -The first non-aeroplane kit I've ever built -The first non military kit I've ever built -And the first kit I've ever uploaded on Britmodeller All in all it I think it went rather well, with the exception of the doors that didn't seem to fit (the drivers door was too tight and the passenger door left a huge gap along the back of the door). However as I am the owner of a old beetle I can confirm that the doors never close qui
  12. So, my latest adventure into the wonderful hobby of model building. The new Airfix 1:24 F6F-5 Hellcat: Going to be doing it in the "Operation SUNFISH" scheme, (only just because I think the other schemes look less interesting, just being blue [;)]) As usual, I just dived straight in without thought of photos and have only now thought to take any! This is being built OTB with the exception of the guns. Bought a replacement brass set (tho can't remember who from!) The cockpit, fuse and wings went together without many problems. Only issue I faced wa
  13. Tamiyas kit, built (more or less) right from the box - I did swap the tyres from the RoG La Ferrari which are the same size but a lower profile. Paint is all Tamiya and all from rattle-cans - Grey Primer, then White Primer then Pure White and finally two light coats of Pearl White, all sealed in with two coats of TS-13 Clear. I used Tamiya three-part polish to bring-up the shine but due to my questionable photographic skills that does
  14. Taking a little break from the F1 cars and building something from my dream garage. This is the Hasegawa 1:24 Lamborghini Miura SV. It's the original red molded kit that I primed and changed to metallic green. I really liked this kit - proportions look great and the wheels are beautifully detailed. Foil transfer emblems also do a great job of enhancing the exterior of the kit. The only issues with the kit were some light sink marks around the headlights that I was able to level with some Tamiya Liquid Primer. Built box stock. The colour is Mr. Color Metallic Green #77 whic
  15. Straight from the box, Tamiya's Subaru BRZ 'Street Custom' - Started about eight months ago and finished over the last ten days. Paints are all Tamiya, TS-21 Gold stripes & X-5 Dark Green. I sprayed a light coat of TS-65 Pearl Clear, then decalled the body and sealed all that in with two light coats of TS-13 Clear. The interior is NATO Black, Dark Yellow and Flat Earth. Feel free to make any comments or ask any questions. Best to all h
  16. Thought I'd try a Blederunner theme and fool around with LEDs and electronics while doing so. This whole thing started with Fujimi's 1/24 (or maybe 1/25) Deckard's Sedan and the corresponding PE set by Paragrafix. Thought I would a couple of LEDs and ended up making a scratchbuilt base and building, adding 40 LEDS, a 5inch TFT display to play a video I edited with a series of ads and a Raspberry Pi Zero to run everything. A shot of the electronic mess that runs it: And a video to show it
  17. Ok guys, Next up on the bench is this little beauty from Revell. It has been in the stash for a while whilst other projects have been going on, but its time to get built has arrived. It is the 1/24 Revell BMW M1 Procar which will be built OOTB which should be a straight foward build. The original decals will not be being used however as i have sourced a set of the 1980 Le Mans #83 car which was the map of France. This should mean a lot less body painting and a lot of Micro Sol and Micro Set. The decals are from Studio 27 via SpotModel. There don't look to
  18. Not content with having 2 kits on the go (KITT and a lamborghini Murcielago) I've started this A birthday present from my sister. I wanted (but she couldn't find) a Mk 3 to build as a memory to my dad who died last month as he had one in the mid 90's. Ive started painting with with thinned paints and what a difference (after all those years of paint straight out of the pot!!) I'm very happy with this so far.
  19. Some time ago I built a Ferguson TE20, from a Heller kit, as shown in this thread: I have now built a diorama as a place to show off the Fergie. The scene is a farm yard right outside a barn. The barn is shown as a single wall, built in a typical Swedish 1800 or early 1900 fashion, but having survived in to the late 1900:s. All items, excpet the Fergie itself and the spade are scratch built. And yes, the cat is a photo
  20. RoG's McLaren 570S all done, finished in Tamiya TS21 Gold, with Semi Gloss Black and Alclad Dark Aluminium details. Interior is my own 'cream' and 'light black' acrylic mixes. The CF decals are from Ka Models of Korea (highly recommended). Not a great kit and fought me all the way to the very end - the final assembly is a proper PitA. I knew to attach the dash onto the lip BEFORE adding the interior because I'd read and seen so many build reviews. Even so, the final fit is truly dreadful... All that said, like the Ferrari 458, the finished car is truly a thing of beauty to my eye.
  21. Revell 1:24 Ford GT Le-Mans Revell have a history of some very good race car kits in there 1:24 range, they have now produced a copy of the 2017 Le-Mans Ford GT. Ford re-released the GT road car a few years ago now to replicate the original GT40, but with modern luxury, and power. The GT was always a performance car so the cross over to the track is an obvious one. Revell have produced a road version as part of there ‘easy Click’ range and Mike has reviewed one previously. . This Le-Mans version is not part of the easy click range and is a fully detailed model kit and is officially l
  22. Revell Porsche 934rsr Martini 1:24 The Porsche 934 is the race version of the iconic 911 Turbo, built for the group 4 FIA rules for the 1976 season. By the time it was replaced in 1978 41 had been produced for the race track. It had a 3l flat six engine mounted at the rear producing from 480-550 bhp. Revell have produced a kit of this car in the classic Martini team colours to sit alongside the other versions including the orange Jargermeister version. This kit is classed as a level 3 kit and is in the normal flimsy end opening box, that is packed with plastic. The body she
  23. As shown in the below thread in the WIP section I have built a Ferguson TE20 "Little Grey Fergie" Heller kit Here are some pictures of the finished tractor.
  24. Yet another piece of work equipment on my part. This time a somewhat older type and model, namely a Ferguson TE20 "Little Grey Fergie" tractor. The kit is by Heller and is in 1:24 scale. First subassembly was the powertrain (minus the wheels).
  25. My wife was brought up in Germany, close to Stuttgart, she also loves orange cars, so... Tamiya's excellent 911/996 GT3 straight from the box and paint mixed by my favourite Mk.I eyeball method (X6 Orange with 'a few drops' of XF15 Flesh). One coat of 'Pearl' clear and two caots of TS13 Clear, all polished with Tamiya three-part compounds (no wax yet). Interior is a typical turn-of-the-century two-tone medium grey and dark blue-grey. Only thing on the finished thing th
