  1. This is a Le Mans Miniatures resin with a small amount of photoetch - Soft line version. It came to me through an Etsy seller and the body was actually pre-painted and partly assembled (I have not been able to confirm if this occurred at the factory or with the seller). The body colour was poorly applied and as uneven as icing on a poor wedding cake. I wasn't convinced that the blue/purple colour was correct either so stripped it and started again with Zero's 917 'hippy' 'blurple', which I'm still not sure is absolutely right, reference material is not very forthcoming. Also, again in my opini
  2. The kit by Hobby Boss represents an armed version of the tank, although actually the turret with armament was never installed. Building the test version of the vehicle required some scratch-building: the superstructure, the front-plate with windows, covers for the air outlets from the engine compartment, additional air ventilation behind the superstructure and round holders for attaching the towing cable. The mounting of the antenna also had to be removed. The towing cable produced by Eureka XXL (for the Ferdinand SPG). The tracks w
  3. This will be my first WIP on here and also my first attempt at detailing up a die cast, it’s going to be a slow one too, summers around the corner and the wife has a large list of jobs around the garden and house. Just a warning. As I said in another thread on the Discussion board, I have always loved the 917 and particularly the JW Engineering run Gulf team, predictable I know but after seeing the movie Le Mans who couldn’t love the blue and orange cars? I used to be a dyed in the wool aircraft modeller but turned to building cars in 1/12th scale a couple of year
  4. So I’ve posted the 1st model earlier this week alpine a110 rally these are the current builds I’m undertaking the nsr 500 just needs the decals finishing and a few details on the bars painting this was built at the same time as the alpine and lots of similar mistakes were made I’m a bit disappointed with this But it’s nearly done and from the other side of the room looks ok the ducati 888 happy so far engine built and in frame trying to get carbon decals on silencers at the moment bodywork is painted rattle can but will need wet sanding first attempt at that co
  5. This build stalled a couple or few years ago when I looked closely at the windows supplied in the kit and realised the main screens were virtually unusable. I commented on @Peter Milgate's lovely build thread about them and then contacted @capri-schorsch who kindly supplied his vac form set with templates and spare material for just the cost of postage, very generous. So I've got no excuse for pushing on except I'm in the middle of a 917K build! In Pete's thread I said I would start my own so here it is, I'll regard this as a place holder to come back to once the 917 is finished, the
  6. Another build from over a decade ago - whilst I had built a few Tamiya kits in my youth (with only one survivor...), this was the first one I attempted since I took up the hobby again. I don't usually build models of modern cars (this variant of the 911 was current at the time), however I had been a passenger in a GT3 whilst a friend 'exercised' it (for want of a better description) & the acceleration even when he wasn't trying was truly memorable ! As the saying goes though, pride comes before a fall, and I was a bit too pleased with myself over how well I thought that the Monogram Cord
  7. Actually it's more a question of how to zimmerit? The supplied stick on zim looks very flat but it may be a better option than home made stuff, we'll see All set to get going on this, photos to follow Cheers, Andy
  8. Porsche 356 Coupe and Cabriolet Revell 1:16 The Porsche 356 range first hit the roads in 1948, with early examples built in Austria. The 356 has an aircooled engine in the back driving the rear wheels and is known as being a lightweight nimble performer. The 356 was built in coupe or cabriolet body style and Revell have given us 2 large scale kits in 1:16 scale. The Coupe kit is a B series, launched in 1959, with improvements and re-styleing over the first A series. The cabriolet is a later C series launched in 1965 this was the final facelift of the 356 range and had a large
  9. Here's my 956 build with shunko decals and scale Motorsport detail up set. My first attempt at super detailing the engine. The kit was the original 956 from 1985
  10. Hi All, I had hoped that this would be my last RFI of 2018, but I ran out of time on New Year's eve... So, it's my first RFI of 2019. This is one of the many Fujimi 911 variants. I have had this in my stash for probably 30 years, and I had partially completed it about 15 years ago, then for whatever reason, I put it away and more or less forgot about it. If you want to see the build thread, go here. Anyway, I finally finished it last night, but because I was tired, I didn't take pictures until this evening. So, here they are: A common complaint that I ha
  11. Hello All, Another one rescued from the dungeon of despondency! I bought this little beastie a long while back, probably over 25 years ago, and it languished it its box for a long time. Again, it was one that I got out more recently, did some more work, then put away again, probably due to the issues with my eyesight. Anyway, too much waffle. This week after I had completed the 288 GTO, I happened upon this box in my garage (The previously mentioned Dungeon of Despondency), and thought "Why not this one?", So, here we are again: The box: Typical Koenig 'over
  12. Hi all, Thought I'd get something up as a first "look what I done" post. I built this 993 GT2 during March of this year whilst on leave. In all honesty I didn't care much for the Porsche marque but in making this model that changed, strange how making a kit can do that... The metallic panels look a bit metal-flake as I have projector LED room lights and the interior really is in red oxide primer! There was a pic on the net of a rejected chassis in this colour, it's a nice contrast if nothing else. Some in progress shots of the body. Tamiya liquid
  13. This was to have been my first ever car kit, but as some of you will have noticed, the Fujimi Ford GT40 pipped it to the post, despite the Ford being started much, much later. The Porsche was, as I suspected, a bit too ambitious for a ‘first’, but never the less it’s provided me with much valuable experience so I can’t really complain. The biggest headache for me was determining in what order to assemble and paint and if I was doing it again I’d change quite a few of my practices. As the Ford, it’s built ‘out of the box’ as I wanted to keep the experience as simple as possible (simple? yeh, ri
  14. Hi all, well it's time to get a new model on the go, fingers crossed I can get my photos up the right way this time. had this for a while now and as I'm waiting for my next project in the post, I thought I may as well got on with this one. so first up the box and instructions; and of course the sprue shots This looks like a nice kerbside kit with plenty of detail. I will be building it out of the box, my next build however won't be... but I have strayed off topic. The chassis has been cleaned up and primed
  15. I finished this 1/43rd Starter kit of the 1970 Martini Porsche 908/02 short tail today. It's built box stock and I used Tamiya acrylics and lacquers along with 2 part auto urethane clear coat. Really enjoyed this simple yet detailed kit.
  16. Ok, So after a long pause, here is the finished build. For those interested the build is here. Thanks for looking in and I welcome any criticisms and comments. Coops
  17. Hi everyone, My first build of 2017. I built Tamiya's 1/24 Porsche 961 kit. The kit is very simple and a snap-together kit. I believe it was originally an R/C kit, hence the simplicity. I added a few details, namely the radio antenna, mesh at the rear, a windshield wiper, and mirrors leftover from by Ebbro Tyrrell 003 build. I weathered the car to make it look like it did when it finished a remarkable 7th in the 1986 24 Hours of Le Mans. The car currently sits in Rothmans livery at the Porsche Museum in Stuttgart. As always, comments and critiques are welcome. Thanks f
  18. Hi all, Here is my latest build - the Hasegawa 1/24 Porsche 962. A fun little build, this kit was re-released midway through last year. I finished it as the Omron 962 Vern Schuppan ran with great success in Japan in 1989. This is chassis 962-008, which was earlier in life a factory Rothmans car and the red/yellow Shell/Dunlop car the Andrettis drove at Le Mans in 1988. I used Tamiya lacquers for the paintwork and acrylics for the weathering. I used a little "artistic license" with the paintwork. As always, comments and critiques are very welcome. Thanks for looking, Jake
  19. I've been looking around for a newer model Porsche 911 (GT3 RS preferably) kit in 1/24 scale but I can't find anything,only the old 911's from the 90's and early 2000's.Is there even a new 911 in 1/24 out there at the moment?? If anyone could recommend a good kit,that would be very helpful. Thank you
  20. Hi this is my 4th model the Revell 918 Spyder. I have used some scal carbon fibre and Plamoz wheels which was not from the Kit, Gravity and Zero colors for paint. I like the final result i am happy with it unfortunately it was rushed as i had a due date to finish but there arnt really many imperfections to be seen by the eye. any feed back is appreciated i may build another one of these in the future as a very enjoyable detailed model.
  21. This is the final thread for my porsche 962 that raced in the 1988 lemans being beaten by the monstrous jaguar xjr9 lm. This started out as a revell porsche 962 rothmans kit, also I had the god awful tamiya 962 kit which I originally only planned to use for the shell/Dunlop decals but a few more parts of the car were added to enhance the revell body. Modifications made were mainly to the rear end using plasticard to lengthen the rear deck. I also corrected the naca ducts on the roof/engine cover with the help of the tamiya body shell And the rear wing supports where m
  22. Hi guys, A model i decided to start to have a break from the Revell tornado, thought id share it with you, No major problems so far, no engine or much interior detail so has been a fairly quick build so far, started last monday and in the final stages already. This is only my second ever model car so be gentle Great invention!!! The result, very happy with this! Decals on. windscreen done and first gloss coat.. second gloss coat, very shiny!! still needs a few spots to be rubbed down and reglossed.
  23. There doesn't seem to be much online for this one. Any thoughts? Cheers, Andrew
  24. Porsche GT3R Resin Wheel sets. 1:24 resin from FG Models The Porsche GT3 is the high performance version of the Porsche 911, with the GT3R being the track racing model and is equipped with all the regulation safety equipment to allow it to race competitively. There are a couple of options when it comes to building a 1:24 GT3, the Tamiya 911 GT3, or the Fujimi GT3R. FG Models have produced 2 resin wheel sets for these kits. The first set I will look at comes in a nice card box and is cast in a pale gray resin. The resin is very nice with no flaws or flash on the set. The detail on the rim
  25. Hello everyone. Something different from me again. Found this kit on a car boot sale and bought it for couple quid. Now finally decided to build it. It's a nice easy kit to assemble. The harder part starts when it comes to painting it. I had couple ideas for it but decided to make it chrome finished. Everything was smooth and great: Of course I have used Alclad2 chrome, and finally after few tries I was really happy with the effect as you can see. Unfortunately I wasn't happy with the gloss level and decided to go for some clear laquer from halfords. Decided to use Enamel Spray Paint, blue
