  1. Hi all, here we go again with another Heller bike build, this was a commission build, to replicate the owners full size bike. He requested the seat to be painted in a dark blue colour, not found any reference pictures to confirm it was a factory option, but I mixed up a colour to blend with the pin striping on the bike. I have a few minor details to finish off but I am calling the build complete for the purpose of the pictures. I will have to see if the client wants the bike mounted on a base, it would finish off the model nicely I think. Hope you all like this 70's German classic.
  2. Hi all, well after a 2 year wait I finally got this model in my display cabinet alongside my 3 other 1/6 scale bikes. Not an easy build, mainly because Tamiya only added parts for the 90S to the old 750/5 kit which left me to add some missing details. But I hope you think the results look convincing enough. More bike builds to come in the near future. Finally, you can see my work in progress of this build in the link below.
  3. This is a commission build for a customer who has the full size bike that I have been doing some restoration work on. He bought this kit from another BMW owner, it’s a very nice looking kit, but no pinstripe decals are provided, so I will have to paint them on. Overall this is the same model kit as my previous build of the RT model, the only real difference is the more sporty nosecone fairing and sports seat, however the client has a standard passenger seat that is also in the kit, so it will not be as the box art. Shame really, as I like the look of the sport seat unit. I will show more build
  4. Hi everyone, well I am calling this done, I scratch built the tote bag on the rear carrier and made the bungee cords. I also added the notched trim around the centre of the rear panniers or bags, for this I cut up a zip tie [cable tie] and epoxied them to the panniers. The original panniers had some similar details. Although I went for a shiny finish on the paintwork, I also wanted to add some road grime and so the look I was shooting for was a the rider and his companion had just spent 4 hours on the road in some pretty lousy weather, heavy rain, road spray and gusty winds between more thunde
  5. This kit dates back to 1987/88, I picked it up off eBay as an unstarted kit, just before Christmas, been itching to start it. As I am very familiar with the full size machine and it was a very popular bike in its day, known as the "Airhead" models, due to being an opposed air-cooled flat twin or boxer, it should hopefully build up into something very interesting to look at. I have built Hellers R750/5 machine in the past, so I am familiar with how the engine is put together and the cycle parts are very similar also. I hope to update you very soon with progress.
  6. The next one from my archives, which by pure co-incidence, was completed on this date nine years ago (which is also when the pics were taken). It's Revell AG's rebox of the Monogram pre-1982 (E12 platform) 6 series - the Tamiya & Fujimi (sometimes also seen in a Testors boxing) 6 series is the later E28 platform version. Visually, the main difference is the design of the rear bumper. I suspect therefore that the tooling dates from no later than 1982. Unlike many of my model kits, this one was bought new in 2008 (along with a Revell AG's also current at the time rebox of Monogram's Ferr
  7. Hi guys. I have been asked by a friend to make a model of his Mini Cooper. As a base I will be using the Revell kit as it has the correct wheels, I would not know how to scratch those. I know that the interior will need a bit of work and his car has a sun roof, but I think I can manage that. However, my first hurdle is the colour. The vin plate shows the colour as 862/5 Indy Blue. Looking in my local car shop, and also online at Halfords, i can find no colour match in a spray. Generally I use acrylic paints. Has anyone got an idea for the best colour match? much appreciated.
  8. I've been looking for this kit for 2 years. Finally got an unstarted kit off eBay a few months back. My plan was to paint it in the alternative colour that was daytona orange, all freehand airbrushed and the red pin stripes to be masked and airbrushed on. Am I up to the challenge? Well, let's find out. First problem was Tamiya had cocked up the tank badge location, the tank badges should sit in a recessed circle just like the tail unit, well that was soon modified and I got the paintwork underway. More to come.
  9. I have reached a bit of a stand still on my current project, I thought I would upload my progress so fro while I wait on some carbon fibre decal to arrive, let me know what you think, also I know have an Instagram for my builds if my one would like to follow instagram.com/lawesscaledcars
  10. Hi guys, this is the final reveal of the 1/8 Heller BMW R750/5, which my friend asked me to build for his elder brother and some pics of the real bike. His brother who is now 57 bought the bike when he was 19 and toured Europe on his Honeymoon!
  11. Hi guys, well here we are again with another classic 70's motorbike build. This time I was given this kit by the brother of the owner of the actual bike in the pictures. I have carried out restoration work on the motorcycle and as the bike is almost finished, I have been asked to build a replica of the bike, so I will be painting the model black and adding the white pinstripes as their is no decals in the kit, wish me luck with that! The kit is nicely molded but is really not designed to be painted as it asks you to add soft vinyl parts during the assembly, making painting an added
  12. German Motorcycles of WWII (9781944367022) A visual history in Vintage Photos and Restored Examples, Part 1 Ampersand Group via Casemate UK The German military machine made perhaps the most use of the motorcycle during WWII than any of the combatants, using it as troop transport, for messenger work, reconnaissance and other combat related jobs, and they had a number of excellent bikes in their arsenal. This book from Ampersand by the prolific David Doyle carries on the format of the Visual History series, with 120 pages of great photos from source
  13. Hi everyone. Recently finished motorcycle, made on sort of comission. Sort of, as comissioned by my brother in law as he has this motorcycle and wanted it's minature on his shelf somewhere. Colour scheme is as on the real thing. Just some minor differences as he has slighlty newer version. Anyways, the kit was quite old. Moulds were average, especially the chromed ones. Aluminium paint is Alclad2, Semi Gloss Black is Revell Acrylics. I must say that working on the satin finish goes to the top 3 of my most hated paints..Every piece of dust is like a big flashing sign saying "You amateur
  14. I haven't seen many positive write-ups of this kit -- and I'm not sure why not. It's an early 90s kit, and not up to Tamiya's latest standards, but it IS very well detailed and fits together pretty well. It needs some work to get the bonnet to close properly (and in mine there's some tin can on the underside of the bonnet lid and a strong magnet atop the firewall), but that's about it. There's a fair bit of flash to be cleaned off (sometimes on delicate parts), and a lot of the chrome parts needed stripping, cleaning up and re-doing, but nothing a sharp knife and ten minutes couldn't fix. I'd
