  1. After a week away, today I got a start on the next project. Well, I say a start, but I've done the spraying of the body coloured bits and some of the bigger satin black parts over summer so technically I started this way back when we were all locked down. Although the kit is getting on a bit now, first impressions are that it's a good, well engineered and detailed kit (actually first impression is that the car is massive, which at least is realistic) with quite a bit to keep me occupied, despite being close to 30 years old now. I've only seen these cars in the flesh in two colours, dark metall
  2. Hello fellows, Let me show my WIP - The Citroën Fourgon Type H 1/24 from Heller. I was hooked with this model, after seeing the awesome work made by MBdesignart in Britmodeller, and his choice as a Guiness Van. So, I decided to make the same subjet...I grab the model in a store in Barcelona (24 Euros), and ordered the decals to Motobitz. In few days the decals arrived at home... Let's start with some pics. Your comments will be appreciate!
  3. This is back to Plan A for me. I decided a while ago to make the Airfix's 1/24th Spitfire for the BoB GB. But then got distracted by the prospect of Eduard's new 1/48 Mk1 which after a couple of resin Spitfires in the STGB seemed an easier option, which may well be true. But on reflection I expect there will be many of the new Eduard kits appearing here, and better made than I can manage. And there's the challenge of the big Airfix kit which bizarrely has its attractions for me . I made it when it first came out in 1970. The obligatory sprue shots;
  4. Build number one ready to go, a Renault Vivastella (1981) - brought this off eBay last year as part of a “bogof” package - this was brand new the freeby was a Heller Citroen Trefle that had been started badly and had warped runners. Hoping it turns out as well as the Trefle
  5. Copyright on the instruction dates this release to 1990, its been in my stash since around that time, and its turn has finally come around...I fancied doing something BoB this year, and chose this beastie, however lockdown and I did not get on, progress has been spectacularly slow after the mojo evaporated, only picking up again recently. Overall 2020 is likely to see only two kits come to completion, and one of those was started in 2019. I can only hope that next year is better all round...anyhow, to catch up with the progress since March, we kick off with what all old kits need, a good sound
  6. This won't be a long build since I've done a bit already. Unfortunately I didn't take too many photos up to now because I was busy enjoying the build. So anyway, I introduce Le Mans Miniatures' 1/24 Mazda MXR-01 from the 1992 Le Mans 24 Hours. The MXR-01 was Mazda's attempt to repeat its 1991 LM win, and on the face of it the omens were good: Mazda got Tom Walkinshaw Racing to pair a modified ASTEC-built XJR-14 tub with a Judd 3.5-litre V10, which the Japanese company re-named the Mazda MV10. So in reality the Mazda was actually a Judd-engined Jaguar. Neverthess,
  7. Hello All, This is the build I have been looking forwards to this year. It will be of the most flamboyantly liveried Hurricane from my Grandad's squadron, which had an RAF roundel on the spinner and a lightning strike down the side of the fuselage. It appears the squadron rotated several times between Tangmere and Exeter during the Battle of Britain and the clearest photo I have seen comes from Exeter: The photo below is linked from another Britmodeller thread This is the kit I will be using: IMG_20200707_102503_658 by Outcast
  8. Didn't take long (by my standards at least) to get this one completed. As suggested by the restoration tag, this one is a restoration of a build first done about 30 years ago back when I was barely a teenager. The kit itself is a snap together (Snap-Loc in Tamiyaspeak), and I understand is based on a radio-controlled model. That would certainly explain the way that it only has about 20 pieces excluding the motor, and half of those are in the wheels and axles! So not a challenge then, perfect for a younger builder building up kits quickly. The real thing ran in this livery at Le Ma
  9. Hi all, I intend to combine all of these kits to produce a diorama featuring some of the main characters and vehicles in Mad Max 2. I will be converting the Wallis Military Gyrocopter into the one seen in the movie, I will be swapping out the engine and using the one from the VW Beetle and I will have to scratch build the twin tail fin assembly. I was lucky to find the resin figures for sale on eBay, they were the last of a limited number produced, no idea by who, but they are nicely cast and look pretty accurate. To complement the figures I bought the kit with the dog, as I wanted to have Max
  10. Hello everyone, This is my entry into the GB; Airfix's big ole' Hurricane: Just a few little extras. A test fit of the kit showed some warping of the major components, hopefully not too bad so as to hinder the build. Cheers, Mark.
  11. After the detailed (and it must be said enjoyable) build which was the Fiesta, time for something a little simpler. Or a lot simpler to be exact - as I understand it Tamiya's Porsche 961 started life as a radio-controlled car before becoming this snap-fit model. Probably simpler that I would buy nowadays, but this one left the shop and was originally built by my younger self somewhere in the very early '90s or possibly very late '80s. The car itself is the one which ran at Le Mans in (if memory serves correctly) 1986, and has one of the simplest racing liveries you're likely to come across on
  12. Time to present my latest completion - Belkits Fiesta S2000. This one is their second kit, and there are indications that they are still finding their way a bit. One such example would be that many of the pegs are semi-circular which is very good for locating parts correctly, but a couple of the pegs are the wrong way around. Overall though, this is a very good kit with just a few bits which need trimming, but it's got a very good level of detail, 'proper' seatbelts, photoetch and lots and lots of decals. In fact, this would be close to being one of the best kits I've done if it wasn't for the
  13. With the Challenger completed, it's time to move onto the next project. First in the set of "cars which share a name-and-not-much-else with cars I've owned", this will be Belkits' Fiesta S2000, which I believe is only the second kit they made. Of course, after I bought this Belkits released their newer Fiesta with the Aston-style grille which would have been much nearer mine, but this will be close enough - after all being a rally car it's never going to be the same as a 1-litre supermini. Unlike @pau10wen's excellent ongoing project, this is going to be pretty much out of the box so I hope yo
  14. The vehicle is an exceptionally well-engineered kit. However, it is not perfect and I struggled in a couple of places. Page on my web site: Doing the Samba
  15. So, seeing as the lockdown and social isolation continues, i thought i would grab another box down off the shelf to occupy my evenings. As the titla and tags suggest it is the Subaru Impreza Sports Wagon WRX in 1/24 from Hasegawa. A nice little curbside kit that should go together well. The mouldings lok crisp with minimal cleanup looking to be required. There are a few parts in the box not required as it looks like some Impreza sprues with the Wagon stuff added on top, so the kit bash spares box continues to grow. Included are some window masks for the clea
  16. Hi all, been a little quiet recently. This is the finished model for the last comp I entered. I sadly had to enter it unfinished due to a missed deadline, but here it is in its full finished state. The kit built well, and the over fender kit wasn't too much extra effort. The wheels are also not the OOB wheels and the whole thing has been lowered. Enjoy and thanks for looking, Coops
  17. I have now completed my entry into the Orange Countach club. I started this quite a while ago, but having a bit more time on my hands at the moment, I've been able to finish what was quite a challenging kit Build post here, if your interested: Painted in Lamborghini original Arancio California from Zero paints, with Zero pre-thinned clear. Only extra, besides a bit of sratch build extra detail was after-market ignition leads I took a picture of the interior before putting it all together. Details I know will never been seen by
  18. Giddey to all! Here is my first build of the Lancia 037 Rally - my favorite rally car! This is the first version, the other is the evoluzione type (the later version) All comments welcome as usual, especially if you can suggest something I can do better! Hope you like it! Chhers Andreas
  19. Hello All, I have had this one on the back-burner for years. I have finally decided, what with the FIAT 500 nearly done and another couple of cars nearing completion as well, to resurrect this one. It's the Fujimi 1/24 246 Dino. It's one of their 'enthusiast' kits, meaning loads of fiddly tiny parts. I have already done a couple of the Porsche enthusiast kits and apart from a few niggles, they went together well. I just wish I knew where I had put them in the loft for safe keeping. I started it a while ago and then put into storage, where it got forgotten for a long while
  20. Moderators, if this is in the wrong forum, please advise and feel free to move. We've seen a number of 1/24 scale injection molded kits of popular World War II fighters and these appear to be quite popular. My internet research shows that there's been only one series of 1/24 jets, the Airfix 1/24 Harrier. Given that 1/24 appears to be growing in popularity, what would be the most likely 1/24 jet fighter or trainer kit to appear in the future? My guess would be one of the following: A-4 Skyhawk and F-86 Sabre. Both have seen world wide service and both open the possibility of a wide
  21. Giddey to all! Here is my first build of the Lancia 037 Rally - my favorite rally car! This is the first version, the other is the evoluzione type (the later version) All comments welcome as usual, especially if you can suggest something I can do better! Hope you like it! Cheers Andreas
  22. Well now! I had this: ..and this...: and - with a little imagination - ended up with this: I present to you - Feline Female! I hope you like it (couldn't call her - you know what - but Feline Female - or FF for short - should be OK?) Cheers Hans J
  23. Well hello there and welcome to my latest endevour. "The Airfix Messerschmitt 109-e 1/24" This will be my biggest and first build at 1/24 Scale, I plan to scratch some stuff together as I want to be able to take The cowl off and expose the engine. It's a lovely looking kit to go with a lovely looking subject. I bought this while having a few swift halves on a caravaning trip to the new forest, Ebay special £19 I had planned to build it OOB only using scratch additions but that has gone out of the window already. I hope you will follow me on a bit of a bumpy ride through a wonder
  24. This model ticked off a number of firsts for me in model building....first 'civilian' vehicle, first 1/24 scale, first salt and hairspray weathering, so was really an ongoing experiment all the way through. The bus is the excellent Revell 1/24 Samba bus. The side doors, load bay and engine cover all open but the front door hinges were so fragile that I glued them shut. The figures are Masterbox and the wall is made from an old piece of laminate flooring painted to look like a concrete wall, with AK graffiti transfers. Paint was Vallejo, Tamiya and some oils for weathering. All co
  25. Hi All, Another one that I have had for many, many years. I was a Christmas present from my ever-suffering wife and, after several years I decided I needed to get a move on with this one. So here we go: A handsome vehicle to my eyes. I have assembled the engine: I primed the body with Tamiya XF-4 before spraying a colour code that consisted of the following: Tamiya XF-16, Tamiya Clear blue and something else (I can't remember the proportions:. I'll look it up later) That's where I
