  1. I've been intermittently having a go at the ancient Entex kit of the Triumph TR3, trying to make something more than a toy out of it. And I feel like I've got somewhere with it. This.... Then I was out and about yesterday and ended up coming home with this box... So I'm finding myself drawn into the car zone. In fact I've just finished a challenge in the Golden Age of Transport Group Build, the old Airfix MG K3 MAGNETTE kit which had several missing parts, namely the chassis, suspension and axles. Much scratch building and tinkering was involved before I ended up with this... (Edit... this is not the K3 that now features in the updated title 😎) So old brit Classics is the flavour of the day. 😍 I've always loved the little TR3, the era and style is just perfect for me, possibly only beaten by the TR2. The Entex kit has some serious toy-like features but the bodyshell moulding looks topclass to me. I'm seeing what I can do with the rest of it. I'll bring the build progress up to date shortly 😉 The MGB by Aoshima is a better class of kit altogether and should be a breeze to build by comparison. Seems to make sense to put them in together for a WIP. Chances are that I'll be diverted onto aviation stuff at times but this will keep all the car stuff in one place as things progress 😎
  2. Good day everyone, I needed a little break from a certain "out of my comfort zone" project I'm stuck in and also needed something more colorful than my usual 50 shades of grey aircraft and so I went for my absolute dream car and probably the only Pagani Zonda I'll ever be able to afford As this is my first car build in like 20 years and my first Aoshima kit ever, it kinda stayed in the "out of comfort" zone but it was an absolute pleasure building this kit. The precision with which this kit was engineered totally baffled me and that the build replicates the making of the actual car is a neat little feature for fans, who really are deep into the building process of Pagani and the mechanics of the Zonda. Needless to say, the build was a massive joy. The car goes together very well, even the rear frame with the engine, which seemed a bit fragile at first but it all got sorted out once it was bolted to the floor and the bulkhead of the cockpit. The only fitment issues I had is the rear clamshell, which seems to be warped a bit so it leaves a little gap on one side while closed. Of course that could be rectified by gluing it in place but hiding all the details of the engine wouldn't do it any justice, so I rather park it on my shelf with the gap facing the wall so nobody needs to know it's there And from time to time just prep it open with the metal shafts provided by the kit. It mostly was painted with brush and different Vallejo and Revell paints, for the body Tamiya's Chrome Yellow from a can was used, for the carbon fiber bits Tamiya's semi gloss black. So now I have my favorite supercar in my dream spec on my shelf, I call that a win I also need to get the Huayra at some point, the successor for the Zonda. I love both cars, so it's a given the Huayra will join my collection but the Zonda will always have a special place in my heart. And that's about it. Thanks for watching, hope you like it and have a nice day
  3. here are the pic`s of my Lancia Delta S4: here is the pic of the corrected exhaust manifold I used a very thin mesh from a teabag This kit is incomplete, all parts of the upgrade/detail set are missing. an interesting link to the real car: https://www.girardo.com/car/1985-lancia-delta-s4-corsa-group-b_0/
  4. The Aoshima Vertex Ridge kit turned into a fairly standard spec r Silvia, which is one of my favourite cars. Probably need a few more practice goes on basic models before attempting anything exotic. I thought the separate springs were really cool.
