  1. I've been meaning to get into this group build for a while, but coming up with a kit took some doing - a lot of the more memorable kits I built in my youth are quite rare and expensive these days (Airfix Saturn IB and Boy Scout spring to mind, as do a lot of Aurora kits). I knew I had this kit, but it was in my secondary stash in my mum's loft, and I've only been able to retrieve it recently due to the lockdown. Back in 1973, when I was 9 or 10 years old, I built a lot of the Aurora glow-in-the-dark monster kits, missing just King Kong and Godzilla. For some reason I remember they
  2. This is a commission build for a customer who has the full size bike that I have been doing some restoration work on. He bought this kit from another BMW owner, it’s a very nice looking kit, but no pinstripe decals are provided, so I will have to paint them on. Overall this is the same model kit as my previous build of the RT model, the only real difference is the more sporty nosecone fairing and sports seat, however the client has a standard passenger seat that is also in the kit, so it will not be as the box art. Shame really, as I like the look of the sport seat unit. I will show more build
  3. Hi everyone, well I am calling this done, I scratch built the tote bag on the rear carrier and made the bungee cords. I also added the notched trim around the centre of the rear panniers or bags, for this I cut up a zip tie [cable tie] and epoxied them to the panniers. The original panniers had some similar details. Although I went for a shiny finish on the paintwork, I also wanted to add some road grime and so the look I was shooting for was a the rider and his companion had just spent 4 hours on the road in some pretty lousy weather, heavy rain, road spray and gusty winds between more thunde
  4. Hi, to everybody. I’m italian and a big vw fan (i have a couple of mk3) I started 2 years ago the collection of this 1/8 golf GTI (100 issues) only for italian market and the collection is now terminated......my model not (some stop due to work on a couple of 1/8 Delta WRC) I’ve started a tuned/stanced project but i decided to remade it with extra details to add more realism to my model. I work on this model when I'll made some work pause on Mclarem Here the status (i've stated to rework in July)
  5. This kit dates back to 1987/88, I picked it up off eBay as an unstarted kit, just before Christmas, been itching to start it. As I am very familiar with the full size machine and it was a very popular bike in its day, known as the "Airhead" models, due to being an opposed air-cooled flat twin or boxer, it should hopefully build up into something very interesting to look at. I have built Hellers R750/5 machine in the past, so I am familiar with how the engine is put together and the cycle parts are very similar also. I hope to update you very soon with progress.
  6. Last years (like every years) was the biggest model expo in Italy (Verona) Modelspace Italy asked me to show my MP4....was a pleasure but was also a moment to think about my build. Watching my Mclaren i'm not satisfy with the result, so i decide to improve it After thinking about it i decide to restore my Mp4/4. After 4 years of modelling and after 4 years which i lightly improved my skills, i decide to make this: - Add all carbon to car - Try to add all missing extra detail I think that put the decal on front wing will be quite easy.
  7. Golf and Mp4/4 are stopped ........are stopped because i started a commissioned work to finish at the end of this year (later in first 15 days of January). I started this work in 10 october The subject is a 1/8 hachette (very poor and detailless model) Lancia Delta Martini.....The person that commissioned me this model ask to me a little work to leave a bit the "toy effect"....so I (re)started to work on this third Delta. The rally will be the San Remo (italy) 1991, pilot Biasion e co-driver will be Siviero. So, I started to dismantled the model mounted by
  8. so here are some of the sprue from the Heller Ty 125 kit. The are very nicely moulded. In stead of vinyl tube you get a vinyl sprue(black) for the cables that have to be held in place between the parts they connect to rather than pushed on. The bottom pic(figure 10) shows how you make the 2 rear shocks using the piece of wire and the jig, nice but I will see how they turn out before probably dipping into my toolroom box of springs. Looks like a very good kit so let's get started with the piston head fins which are a separate parts a nice touch remove the horrible chrome from the wheels and oth
  9. I was excited to build a brand new 1/8 scale kit from a new company after building so many Pocher kits over the years. Here are my quick building impressions of the new LeGrand 1/8 Collection VW Beetle kit (a complete kit version of the DeAgostini/ModelSpace partworks kit) a decorative metal sign is included body parts are prepainted with all necessary scripts and trim, wheels are metal, tires are softer than Pocher plastic parts are prepainted, bagged and boxed in groups (no sprues to cut!) the screws are nicely prepackaged in three compartmentalized boxes (you will have
  10. Hello again. A new project has begun. Or rather, 2 almost identical models. Both models are of the Scania Lt 141 type from 1979. They were ordered on the same day by the two owners and I took the challenge of building them simultaneously. I started preparing the drawings in November 2018 and here are the pictures of the results for now. They are built in scale 1/8 and are basically 100% scratch built. I made sure to make molds for as many of the parts as possible. It simplifies the work on the other model - and maybe on future projects as well.
  11. Hi all, this is the final reveal of the 1972 Kawasaki 750 H2. This was the most powerful and unpredictable bike to own in that era and carved out a reputation for itself as a bit of a Hooligan. To emphasize the character of the bike I decided to ditch the centre stand, as any hard rider would find it a limitation in the ground clearance. Also I have scraped the chrome on the underside of the exhausts, which was a common occurrence when leaning this bike over into bends. As a final detail I wanted to show the oil tank gauge indicator which was basically a clear tube that exited and
  12. Hi all, here is the start of another 70's classic superbike build. The Kawasaki Z900A4 or KZ900 in the US. This is going to be a kitbash of sorts as this kit is not available. I bought two kits which I will take parts from to build the Z900A4. Don't fret! I have a plan for a workshop diorama in the future, for the leftover parts. As you can see I have made a start on the bodywork, the paint colour is diamond dark green. I used the Z1000 decals for the side panels and cut them and painted in the number 9. There was some subtle differences between the Z1000 and the Z750 which eventua
  13. Hi guys, this is the final reveal of the 1/8 Heller BMW R750/5, which my friend asked me to build for his elder brother and some pics of the real bike. His brother who is now 57 bought the bike when he was 19 and toured Europe on his Honeymoon!
  14. Lamborghini Aventador Roadster LP700-4 Pocher 1/8 kit, with detailing and LEDs Follow up post of my build thread, where I talked a lot about everything. Here I'll let the images speak:
  15. Hi guys, well here we are again with another classic 70's motorbike build. This time I was given this kit by the brother of the owner of the actual bike in the pictures. I have carried out restoration work on the motorcycle and as the bike is almost finished, I have been asked to build a replica of the bike, so I will be painting the model black and adding the white pinstripes as their is no decals in the kit, wish me luck with that! The kit is nicely molded but is really not designed to be painted as it asks you to add soft vinyl parts during the assembly, making painting an added
  16. Hello everyone, I came across this forum while doing some research (Google image search), and found the work of roymattblack. I originally had bought my Aventador as a decoration for my living room, so the goal was to complete it asap. I was already halfway through and about to connect the engine part to the passenger cabin when I saw what Roy did to his kit. Wow! I loved the tiny little details he added and was so inspired that I started taking my almost completed rear part apart again. I did more research and found more and more things looking wrong on my model. I did build a couple of Re
  17. Hello all, On request from Poul and Rich, I’m posting a WIP on my Pocher F12 engine duobuild. The build has been stalled for about 6 months mainly due to other builds getting my full attention. But I need to continue work on these as the parts take up a lot of real estate space in my work area, as you will soon notice. A colleague had acquired this kit but he isn’t a modeler so he asked me to build it for him. As I had the same kit in my stash as well, I started both kits simultaneously, as I would otherwise probably not build my own kit anytime soon. I also thought that it wouldn’t
  18. I was looking into this kit while evaluating what might be next and found very lttle information about it here in the forum. So I thought why not start an official discussion about this upcoming kit, possible release dates, first reviews and misc. stuff. Contributions welcome. Found this image on twitter of the actual kit car as shown @ Nurnberg toy fair early 2016. All other images lurking around are CAD renders. I saw a discussion somewhere based on these Images. I for my part highly doubt the cockpit will be as detailed as in the renders. I found old renders of the Aventador and the kit
  19. I bought this a couple of years ago and have wanted an excuse to dig it out of the stash for a while. I'm going to be building it as an operational combat variant in camouflage with lighting. There's some nice detail on the base. The main torso parts came in a poly bag already off the sprue, I popped them together to give a better idea of the size.
  20. I really hope DeAg release this in the UK at some point: http://deagostini.jp/site/lcl/pretop/index.html Mike D.
  21. Hi folks, I'm not sure why I put off finishing this for a month, it didn't actually take all that long to do the final assembly, wiring and scenics. But it's done now! (click for bigger/more pictures on Flickr) The kit is from Industria Mechanika, and is a resin cast of a 3D-printed master of a model by a guy called Mike Jensen. My original plan was to do something a bit shinier and cleaner, but I found that the surface was basically too complex to polish, and opted for a weathered finish instead The inspiration was District 9, and more specifically Neill Blomkamp's earlier short Tet
  22. Hi folks, I figured I should stop ogling the Industria Mechanika kits and actually build some of them I've been cleaning up the Fichtenfish but I wanted to have a go at the sniper when it appeared since it's big and cool and an antidote to this fiddly 1/144 scale hovercraft I've been building. I'm a total resin novice, I've used a couple of resin aftermarket parts but that's it, so please point and laugh or suggest things to save me from my own stupidity according to taste I started by soaking the bits in warm soapy water, scrubbed them with an old toothbrush and rinsed them off. They
