  1. hello fellow modellers, I want to share some progress of this project. so far it has been quite fun and enjoyable to build. I found very useful this post by Pappy (from 2008!) here's my first WIP
  2. Morning all, I trust everyone is enjoying the Bank Holiday. I have just started the old Bandai/Otaki/Doyusha 1/12 BMW E9 3.5 CSL, I got a bit of a glue bomb off eBay a couple of months ago and I've stripped it down and given the shell a bath in Mr Muscle to get rid of the paint and decals, so I'm just about to start putting it back together. As part of my car collection I want to modify the model from the 1975 IMSA spec to 1976 European Group 5 spec, I saw the cars run at the inaugural Silverstone 6 Hour meeting and the Fitzpatrick/Walkinshaw car won it in an exciting finish fro
  3. EL-5A Mouse Droid 1/12 3D Print I've recently bought a 3D printer (Elegoo Mars Pro), and have been slowly finding my feet with that and Fusion 360. I wanted something fairly simple as an initial print, and there's very little that's simpler than Nigel. He objected to a digital doppelganger though, so this initial print has become EL-5A who's now betrothed to Nigel in some kind of weird mouse droid arranged marriage. The print came out fairly well, although there are some things I need to tweak, both with the printing and with the original file. The upper body was done at
  4. This is my modification to a large scale die cast model of the Gulf Porsche 917, I did a WIP thread here Basically I started with a CMR (nee Minichamps) ready made model of the famous #20 car from 1970 Le Mans but wanted to add some extra detail. This is what I started with, And after stripping down, some scratch building and detailing I finished with this, It's not perfect, the weathering is a bit clumsy (no airbrush) but is inspired by both the movie images a
  5. 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
  6. HI all, not really a WIP, just some shots of a half built model. After a long break from modelling I fancied the newly released Alfa from Italeri. It's OK. Fit is very good, sink marks not so good. Detail is pretty good too overall. Anyway, here's where I'm up to:- So far I've:- Drilled out all of the kit 'bolts' indistinct plastic blobs, and replaced them with proper resin items Drilled out the core plugs, built up the outers and fitted brass core plugs turned 4 ali filler caps for the rocke
  7. 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
  8. For you delectation may I offer my 1/12 Ferrari 312T as driven by a Mr N. Lauda at the USGP West Long Beach March 28 1976? It's the venerable Tamiya kit, but in it's later upgraded guise with etched metal fittings. I managed to obtain this several years ago from a member of my old club, @Covjets13 thanks Si! Bet you wish you'd charged me more as these things have rocketed in value in the last couple of years. I didn't use very much of new etch parts in the kit, they didn't seem to add much in my opinion. I remember building this back in the late 70's and the parts don't seemed to hav
  9. I picked this kit up last year but upon opening the box was a bit disappointed. I found to be much simpler than I was expecting, more akin to a scaled up 1/24 kit. Anyways, in looking to distract myself from the pair of B-25s lingering on my bench I decided to give it a whirl. One of the first things I noticed when I opened the box is that the kit uses stickers instead any decals for the various markings as well as the IP. Starting with the engine and front drivetrain, I noticed a fair bit of flash as well as odd marks in the moul
  10. Hi Folks, A friend of mine is building the Tamiya 1/12 Caterham and would like to replace the Brake/fuel lines. Can anyone suggest a source for braided lines? Thanks in advance Kev
  11. R-33K Protocol Droid Bandai 1/12 Another repaint of Bandai's C-3PO to add to the collection (I still haven't built this kit as it's intended subject yet). As with the previous ones, this is a non-movie droid of my own design by the name of R-33K, or Reek to his friends (if he had any). He's clearly not had the best of lives, and is probably even more decrepit and useless than Boris. No real modifications to the kit apart from the various hacks and gashes, and the missing arm, the joint for which was made from spares box bits and a few lengths of wire.

    Hi all Richard - new member from Nottingham area Been modelling for 50+ years but looking to up my game regarding detailing rather than just building kits This is my first project delivered yesterday by the postie, no 1 in my alltime road car list Many rank amateur questions to follow if you can help, I will start a separate build thread
  13. Hi Folk's, inspired by Lee's superb Suzuki build I thought I would have a crack at my first bike kit for donkey's years.Despite being a biker for many years and a modeller even longer bikes have never been my thing model wise,kit was a little over £12 so can't fault it and being Tamiya you know what you are getting,so not expecting as quick build as I'm snowed under aircraft wise but made a start with the early stages of the engine so here goes.Box art. Engine and carbs/airbox assembled.
  14. So this was my first ever bike build, and must admit I was really looking forward to it. But things didnt start well, the paint I was using which was a Halfords Automotive rattle can, just didnt sit well and so I had to strip, sand and start again....I later discovered I hadnt shaken the can well enough. So I decided to pack the kit away, as I had a few other builds and come back to it later. And after a few weeks I picked the kit up again, and it just all fell together. I had a couple of issues with the decals, but nothing a bit of touch up paint would clear up.
  15. Hi guys, well that went together super quick, really enjoyed this build, great engineering. Instructions were not quite up to Tamiya's standards and not a beginner’s kit, for example the fuel tap was in 3 sections, a beautiful copy of the real thing, but the instructions were a bit vague as to how it all fitted. Lucky for me that I had seen an original tap up close and knew how it all should look, also at this scale this bike had loads of very fiddly cables and tubes to be cut to length and fitted in place. I painted the kit supplied chrome parts with a wash of AK grease enamel, I wanted the b
  16. Hi Guys, Having finished a Revell BMW 507 last week I had the choice to start working on: - a diorama I have started (only thing is.. next step is photo etching, bit anxious to start that); or: - something I've been thinking of for more than a year, a Formula one car by Tamiya, scale 1/12. After quite a bit of thought I've chosen the latter, which choice was made easier knowing that a beautiful aftermarket-set was just released for a beautiful and almost legendary car. I'll build the McLaren MP4/6 powered by the 12-cilinder RA121-E. Honda managed to squeeze 720 horsepower out of this 3,
  17. This is my first bike build of 2019. I normally have finished at least one bike build at this point in the year, but I haven't had much free time to build a kit until now. Hasagawa got the model designation wrong, this bike is a K model not a B, Suzuki had a weird habit of launching models with the letter J and ending not with A but with B, confused? Example, GT750J 1st year of production 1971, followed by GT750K in the 2nd year of production, updates included a move to a single disc front brake, dropping the front drum brake from the 1st model. Anyway, this should be a fun build, looks a grea
  18. Hi there guys, Beginning of this month I decided to start an out of box-build to allow myself to some modelling without thinking too much, setting the Delage 15-S-8 scratchbuild project on hold for a bit. I'll certainly resume that later, so no worries there. Introduction The Honda RA273 was a Formula 1 car from the '60s... not really successfull but it looked beautiful and sounded impressive. I chose Youtube vlogs as a medium to present the build to my colleague modellers. As my daughter participates and she doesn't speak English, the spoken language is Dutch but
  19. NSR500 Mich Doohan 1998, bought 12.11.2000, completed today! Decals Shunko Models, paints Zeropaints, front folk TopStudio. Construction report:
  20. Hallo, this is a kit that I bought many years ago and had no courage to start. Originally it should be build as MoviStar machine, but I managed to spoil the decal, so it will be Repsol's bike. Aftermarket decal is from Shunko Models and it is absolute trash. Avoid it! On the positive side is Zeropaints set - absolute joy to work with ))) VG K.
  21. This is the Airfix 1/12 Yeoman of the Guard, slightly altered...
  22. This piece was kindly given to me by Patrick Camilleri, who cast the parts from his kit and assembled most of them for me, now mounted on a base with my old badges.
