I decided that I want to create a sleeper as hotrod version of the VW Samba bus after seeing a couple of outlandish mods on Netflix and YouTube! I wanted a worn looking Samba so not be an obvious rod, but it had to be low slung to show intent. To achieve this I at first wanted to stick in a 911 engine, but that is so "old hat" and done to death in the real world, i wanted to try something else. Thinking about this for while longer, I decided to create a "hybrid" Frankenstein by combining a Revell Audi R8 for its engine & wheels with the Revell Samba kit. Where to begin? How to modify? How to blend the two kits in a way that it does not land up being a total waste of what is essentially two very nice kits? I have lots to ponder, as this is a very unfamiliar world, far beyond just adding a bit extra detail.🤔🤯 I will post some photos of my WIP.
Hi all Scott here (cromwell) I know I have made several citiques and comments on a few models on this site. I thought it was high time I showed you what I have been up to. IMG_1148 by scott findlay, on Flickr The above picture should be of my M4 IC hybrid, the front is that of the Italeri M4A1, the body of a Tamiya M4 and the turret of a Tasca If the above picture appears I'll put up pictures of my M4 IB, Sherman I and my Sherman II hybrid being built M4 IB will be 9th Lancers as in the Osprey book when finished Sherman II will be 2nd Dragoon Guards (Queens Bays) when finished. As standard I add a few homemade additions i)The three nuts on the bottom of the suspension units ii) thin strip of plastic with holes where the dust sheilds are mounted iii) Mesh over the grouser openings on the rear deck iv) on the firefly turrets I've removed the six moulded tie down points on the side of the turret and replaced with wire rather than mr surfacer I've used liquid poly over the cast body and turret to get the cast effect, I also use the hairy stick approach to painting the vehicles to give more texture, this will come out when washed and weathered. I'll post some scratch built ammo boxes and my apporximated drawings tomorrow
