In the meantime I am finishing another 2 WRC delta, I started thinking about my next project. I write a premise: my good friend model maker Riccardo tried to take me on the "right" way of the hystoric racing. The idea would have been a LeMans (the 4H race in the 24) # 62 driven by Lennep with an NA engine and Martini livery ..... not to be confused with the Turbo # 46 always used by Lennep, always at LeMans, always Martini but at 24H race. Beautiful cars, but that don't make “fall in love” like an mp4/4 or a Delta. If I continue to model my historical subjects it will be the F1, the WRC and some LeMans .... the rest I like custom or tuning like my Golf GTI My inspiration starts from a Porsche seen live at Woerthersee 2013 .... an awesome USA 964: it is practically original, just very low (airride) and a rotiform rims. The idea of my Porsche is based on this: a car with original shapes (practically a sleeper .... if a sleeper can be defined as a Porsche) "slammed" on the ground, 4 rims but with a turbo engine and therefore probably with the rear open bumper and with turbo clearly visible just like on the Lennep RSR in 24H Lemans Now I’m studying the various engines between the various 935 of 76 and 79; there will be a lot to work and it will not be easy ... I don't even know if I will be able. I have the first 21 double issues with the possibility of understanding how difficult it will be to move the cooling fan horizontally The biggest problems will be: -Exhaust manifolds -Wastegate -Turbo intake -alternator -Intercooler position The rest will be the classic two-seater, internally emptied, rollcage and the usual mix of carbon, airride and bbs rims We will see that “salade” will emerge from it.
Well I decided to dig this out to use as a stress reliever build to go alongside my Days of Thunder build and well, just look what happened in 3hrs Ok so it was a stalled build from last year lol. Better explanation to come in a WIP I'm going to start about a Capri with a Turbo Eye's peeled everyone lol. TTFN Ashley
Ok first one off the blocks.... This was a very late decision for me and not what was originally planned. But Ii just loved the look of it and it was quite different...my kind of build! The base model will be a 1/48 Tamiya P-51D like the picture of the box below.........hmm the actual model hasn’t arrived yet! The conversion is 1/48 Heritage Models Cavalier Turbo Mustang III kit which looks to be a nice conversion, accuracy...will have to look at some drawings! Just have to chop the nose and under radiator off glue in the resiny bits and thats it.....simple! White metally bits Some clear and resiny bits Hmm I wonder what colour scheme I’ll choose??? Decals..........just two! Hopefully this will be a nice simple and quick build.....may even get the A-36 out!
Well, I always wanted to build aircrafts of Falklands subject, and after a 1/48 Sea Harrier from Tamiya, I decided to build a T-34C Mentor, used by Argentina during the war. Unfortunately, the two available kits of Mentor in this scale are not good, so I made a lot of scratch work to improve the kit. The complete build pictures and comments can be found here, at IPMS-Rio de Janeiro website: http://www.aprj.com.....php?f=8&t=3036 Some pics during the battle: The finnished model: I hope you appreciate !
