Hi all, Today I actually managed to start my first model... the Tamiya 1966 VW Beetle. I was originally going to build this to be the same as the beetle I used to own however I believe it would be too difficult for a first model, I would have to change too much on it as mine was a ‘74 and therefore had different lights, bumpers etc. So I’ve decided to do it from the box (I may fit the opening rear windows I’ve seen on HighlightModelstudio.com). I’ve spent ages searching through the Hycote colours online to find one I like, I originally was looking at VW colours but got drawn to some Ford colours I like instead... I ordered Ford Green Jade Metallic originally, not realising it was actually out of stock so I’m still waiting for that to arrive, and in the meantime found Ford Sierra Beige and decided that suits the car much more and ordered and received that very quickly. I haven’t done loads to start, I have laid down 2 coats of primer (Optima grey plastic primer) and 1 coat of Hycote Ford Sierra Beige Quite happy with the colour and how it’s looking so far... for a first attempt. comments and criticism please people.
Waiting for the dimensions of the 1927 Delage I temporarily resumed work on a project I abandoned three years ago, a 1970 Volkswagen Beetle. Revell says it's a 1968 car but the standing headlights and other characteristics do not match that. I'll give a picture summary of the work till now, whereas the recent works will be elaborated on (slightly). The purpose of these new works is to practice the lathe and milling machine for the benefit of the Delage build. The original texts (for a forum in the Dutch language) are extensive. If anyone is interested in knowing more of a certain picture, you're very welcome to ask. I'll use the original numbering. 6. 7. 10. 13. 16. 18. 28. 31. 32. 52. 53. 57. 62. 72. 73. 76. 79. 85. 90. 92. 96. 101. 106. 109. 114. 118. 123. 135. 141. 143. 150. 155. 168. 176. So far for the work done until May 2014. In another post I'll describe the 2017 progress.
I started this model in "Hornet STGB" but failed to finish in time http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234941171-aussie-special-bug/ Three weeks are hopefully enough to get her finished. This is what I have at the moment:
