  1. Hi everybody! This is my first "Ready for inspection" This is the Tamiya kit of the 1966 Morris Cooper S MK1. I wanted to build this because I built one from a wreck, and had it for 19 years. Of course, this had to be an exact copy. Well, as good as possible! First; this is a picture of the original: Then, I do not have much pictures from the building process. At least I can give you this: Here are some pictures of the model, as it is today. (I have not painted the logo on the trunk lid and the S on the bonnet, yet. I will try to make it with a fine pen. (Chicken!) You might wonder what the silver spot close to the right windshield wiper is? The fact is that I not know either! The original had a hole there. I guess it was a hole made for a radio antenna. Strange place to put it, but it was an easy place to get the cable into the car, compared to the normal frontwing. I knew about the hole, but I forgot (!) to weld it before the body was painted! Then I drove in all years with a silver blinding there! Then I had to paint it on my model too! Other topics to be aware; - The grill is not correct. This is the Austin grill. But the Morris grill is not included in the set! - The rims are some kind of cosmic rims! I drove with the standard Cooper S rims; 3,5”. Later I “upgraded” to the optional 4,5, that looked similar and could have 165/70 rubber! The original rims had 145/10. No question about what I preferred; the old standard! And no one in the Norwegian Cooper Club were driving with 3,5” rims! Just me! - The color is Surf Blue, on the 1:1 car. The color on the model should have been greener! Besides this I am very satisfied! Other Mini expert might also discover other small details, but those are differences that belong to standard and Cooper. My car started its life as a MK1 850 and was converted to a replica of Cooper S. Below I have put the Mini into my “Picnic Dio”. The next difficult question is: What is next? I have several kits in queue, but on the "next building wish-list" are Billing Boats "Osebergskipet" (the Viking ship), and the Pocher Lamborghini Aventador. 8-)
  2. Hello fellow modellers. This is my first ever project of something like this (diecast dont count ) and in the past 2 months or so,ive been doing this. Note: Expect a lot of bad work If anyone can explain to me why 1 of the headlights went white after i stuck it on,I'd appreciate it. (No i didnt put a lot) *dat popping out wheel tho* Anyone care to spare 2 rear fenders? lol Dat stance tho It ain't a problem for me to take a few daytime picture tomorrow if anyone wants. Also abit of info on it. Most of the parts excluding the green parts,rims,under and over the floor panel have been painted with nail polish..due to..me being a cheap sweetheart lol and trying to make it a budget build. Next build wont be so much on a budget tho,I've bought some paint. Also underneath the floor panel at first i thought id try and paint it with black nail polish...which looked like ..well.. So i covered it up with Gun Metal. What i got to say about the model...Well first off to the people that said that it's a good first model,...nope,it was b*tch building it through most of the time,but I ain't mad,just pointing the facts out. Quality of the model was great all up until i had to make the suspension and tires work...of which only 2 wheels spin,the other 2 are stuck unless u roll em with ur hand. Also my glue (Revell Contacta which is..kind of messy) melted off the rear wheel's middle bits which were going into the drum brakes so after they hadnt attached well enough i had to take them off and try and fix em. I did,but sadly theyre now popping out of the fenders. It was really hard making the brakes. The middle bit which spins the wheel doesnt even spin. I've tried clearing the hole a bit,tho the middle part at one point could even come out of the brake when u move it around a bit. Overall it was a fun experience,had it's hard moments,but that's expected when u havent done this before. If anyone wants to see more pictures through the project,they can go here http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234968753-tamiya-morris-mini-cooper-1275s/ My next model will be a an ae86 Levin hatchback. For those unfamiliar with it,its a Toyota Corolla. Hope u partly like it guys,I might soon be starting the Levin,so if u want to see me try and not ruin a great car,follow the next build when it pops up.
