  1. Have we ever had a single type group build for a car? What else could offer more variety in both colourful prototype cars and a plethora of kits than the original Pony Car the Ford Mustang? None! So; any scale, any material, any year, any kit, for street, for strip, for a raceway with turns too, factory stock, street machine, race car, Shelby or "secretary" Mustang, Mach 1, Boss 302/429, GT, Bullitt, 1964 1/2 to 2021; this is it as long as it's a Ford Mustang! Any takers? V-P 1) vppelt68 (host) 2) Kitkent 3) johnlambert 4) cmatthewbacon 5) TonyW 6) Alan R
  2. Belkits 1/24 Ford Escort RS1600 This kit was brought back from Japan a couple of weeks ago by a good friend of mine. The other three kits I’m making at the moment have been put on hold until this one’s done. I’ve owned three Escort MkIs over many years which can be curse and a blessing when it comes to being so familiar with the real thing. I'll just give a brief intro until I can find the camera lead to download some pics and will continue the commentary at the same time. The box is full: the body shell is packed in its own carton with the rest of the space filled by four sprues many of wh
  3. What started out as a Ford transit UK police kit I wanted to build something different and unique there is lots more work to be done but here is my progress so far, any feedback is welcome and hope you like. Progress has been slow due to me going back to work but here is where the transit van is currently at, I've decided I want to turn this transit into a campervan, I've lined the rear sides out in wood, with the roof awaiting to be done, I've got for the beach towel over the seats (this is far from perfect) and I decided to take my hand a
  4. I hope these are OK to post here, I've got a few 1:148 scale 3D printed cars, mainly as scenic accessories for my model railway, but they are quite nice on their own and quite challenging in their own way. You can't get many 1970s or '80s cars in 1:144 so the 3D prints are a good way to add to the collection (even if they are very pricey). This is the current selection, some glued to cotton buds to hold them whilst painting. There are 3 different Ford Escort Mk3s (XR3 plus standard 5 and 3-door hatchback). I've also got a Renault 5 and Vauxhall Cavalier in (slow) progress.
  5. Hi all, well considering how basic this kit was when I first looked it over, I think it has turned out looking pretty spiffy. The kit really was going to have to be super detailed to make it look convincing; I used a basecoat colour that I had mixed for a motorcycle tank I was respraying for a client. It was Suzuki Maui blue; it seemed to match the full size car's colour perfectly. Not one of Hasegawa's finest, there was some nasty fit issues, around the front fender, the lower valance did not want to fit, as well as the rear wheel covers. I had to replace the front windscreen and quarter side
  6. Hi guys, here is another car project and I really do have my work cut out with this one, it’s been in my stash for about 5 years, dug it out last week and took a peek at it, good points are that it has a very nice accurate looking body and all the fenders and details on the outside of the car look good, however inside was very poor, no engine bay, and worst of all very inaccurate seats and dash. Not surprising really as the 66 T-Bird had very elaborate seat and dash detailing, so what to do? Well, looking at YouTube videos I found that the convertible versions looked much better, so I dec
  7. Model T 1917 Touring WWI Australian Service (35667) ANZAC Drivers 1917-19 (35707) 1:35 ICM Via Hannants Formed in 1914, the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) played a substantial part in WWI often in areas that are seldom given the prominence of the Western Front. They were a major player in Gallipoli where they were heavily mauled due to the Lions led by Donkeys approach that pervaded at the time. They also served in Palestine and Egypt, and it was the former where they used the then new Ford Model T to replace the previous vehicles that were sufferi
  8. Revell 1:24 Ford GT Le-Mans Revell have a history of some very good race car kits in there 1:24 range, they have now produced a copy of the 2017 Le-Mans Ford GT. Ford re-released the GT road car a few years ago now to replicate the original GT40, but with modern luxury, and power. The GT was always a performance car so the cross over to the track is an obvious one. Revell have produced a road version as part of there ‘easy Click’ range and Mike has reviewed one previously. . This Le-Mans version is not part of the easy click range and is a fully detailed model kit and is officially l
  9. Model WOT6 British WWII Truck (35507) 1:35 ICM During WWII, Ford UK built a great many vehicles for the British war effort, as well as some 34,000 Merlin engines for Spitfires, Lancasters and Hurricanes. The WOT.6 was a 4x4 light truck (3 ton capacity) with a short cab that housed a 3.6L V8 engine pumping out a fairly paltry 85hp that could get it to 75mph eventually. The engine's location under the cab gave the load bed plenty of space on the chassis rail, and also gave the truck a sit-up-and-beg look. The heat from the radiator had to be redirected by a
  10. This was a little simple project to keep me out of trouble over Christmas and has just been finished. The Revell Snaptite Ford Expedition in 1/25, it comes all black with stickers for the white bits in it's intended police car model. The CFD decals are old ones from Chimneyville and the lightbar comes from the Ghostbusters model.It was brush painted using Humbrol enamels and finished with Winsor & Newton Galeria varnishes which were also brushed on. Because it was a simple idea I didn't bother with an interior although the model comes with some bits to put in the back, so I opt
  11. So far so good. Can't wait to give you more. Flickrhttps://www.flickr.com/gp/154999142@N05/E96N05
  12. I haven't done a RFI for sometime. In fact I think I've only ever done one, maybe two This the old Airfix 1/32 1912 Ford Model T converted to a post-1917 Model T Pick-up Its far from perfect tho. Main things done were; steering connections made changed to left-hand drive instrument panel and instruments added the scuttle, radiator and engine bonnet rounded the rear deck extended and the pick-up/stake body built of plastic card windscreen glazed and mid-way bar added tilt roof rear window glazed exhaust end pipe extended wit
  13. Anyone remember the programme? In the late 70's early 80's, created by the same guy who created "CHiPs" and hot on the heels of the classic "Emergency!" 240 Robert was the callsign of the Bronco used by two Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies who were also search and rescue paramedics. The programme focused on this aspect rather than the policing role, it only lasted 15 episodes and one of the main characters was played by Mark Harmon, later of NCIS fame. As a young kid in West Yorkshire, I loved it, I think it was on ITV on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Of course now through t

  16. I am doing a Ford Fiesta of the Paraguayan driver Augusto Bestard, which I had the pleasure of seeing in person in Erechim, in the year 2015. He competed for the South American stage of that year. This is the car: He is a Ford Fiesta R5, category below the WRC. I'm going to use a Fiesta WRC from Belkits, it's not the same car because WRCs are different from the R5 in some aspects of the body, but since I live in Brazil, buying a transkit is practically the price of a new kit (and the Two together gets really heavy on price), so sadly he'd been left with those differences. The belkits k
  17. Hello A few pictures on my project that I have finished in Aughust. It's Revell Ford 32 in 1:25 scale for someone who like post apocalypse universe and films. Enjoy. Cheers Mike
  18. Finished this a couple of days ago, something a little different for me, picked the kit up earlier this year in California for a tidy sum of $9.99, so I got two. Nicely made, couple of little bits inside to go with the police stickers - yes stickers not decals. Moulded in black which made the white paint a pain. The decals are from JBOT (who still seems to be off line), the light bar is from police car hobbies and a few stick on glittery things to simulate the LEDs that adorn most emergency vehicles these days. You may ask why Ontario Provincial Police out of Thunder Bay? Well, I could li
  19. Time to post my new project. I have build this kit a few years ago but I since it was one of my first models I did make a few mistakes while building it. The bumper broke off a few times, paint snapped off, glue on the clearcoat... The main reason why I always fixed it up was because I painted the stripes myself. Here it is newly build: The new kit: unboxing: https://www.facebook.com/mgscalemodels/photos/?tab=album&album_id=1174778152583795 All the body parts: Painted these Zero Paints Jet Black And this is now the 7th Mustang I build I pretty much know this kit inside ou
  20. Most of the work in progress was done last weekend however I managed to get some hours in this week. I battled through the fit issues of this old kit, it didn't come with any white wall tyre inserts or any decals. I used Alclad black base over a grey primer, I then used an Automotive 2K clear over the Alclad base to give the shine. For the seats and the interior door panels I used Revell Purpurrot Aqua Color which was brushed over with a Automotive 2K clear matte lacquer, this gave the effect of a leather type material on the seats. I was struggling to get certain items correct as I was trying
  21. Well I decided to dig this out to use as a stress reliever build to go alongside my Days of Thunder build and well, just look what happened in 3hrs Ok so it was a stalled build from last year lol. Better explanation to come in a WIP I'm going to start about a Capri with a Turbo Eye's peeled everyone lol. TTFN Ashley
  22. I picked up this kit off eBay at a really ridiculously cheap price. Not sure if anyone else in the forum has built this kit, I think it dates from around 1980 however it is very well detailed for the age of the kit. Quite a bit of flash here and there but nothing that can't be sorted. Although this is a 48 Ford, the kit gives you the option to build the car into a 47 or 46 model so I decided to build a 46 Ford that was modelled on the car that the character "Biff" drove in the Back to the Future movies. This particular car had distinctive stainless steel strips running down the bodywork, I dec
  23. Heres a few models ive made over the last 6 months or so. First up, two Tamiya F1 kits, the 1/20 scale Ferrari 640 and Williams FW11. The Ferrari went quite well, only really the nose doesnt quite fit properly, it doesnt quite meet up with the panel surrounding the suspension arms. I used Halfords Vauxhall Flame red, looks ok but im not really bothered if its not 100% right. The Marlboro decals with Mansells name on were plain with no "marlboro" on them so i printed some on decal paper and added it, looks much better imo. Im still getting to grips with spraying paint and theres some signs of
  24. Ford Canada CMP of the 5th Canadian Armoured Division, 12th Infantry Battalion, 2nd Artillery co. - Italy, 1943 Finished just in time for New Years, my Peerless/Max Chevy 15CWT converted to a Ford CMP, hope you enjoy, and a belated Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year to everyone ! Colin - On CMP: - Modified from Chevy to Ford with Eduard's photo-etch grill, Ford instrument panel, "Ford Canada" and "Ford" logos on front - Detailed cab with rear internal structure, detailed Lee-Enfield .303 rifles, added slings (stowed behind seats), round Ford style clutch and brake pedals, shortened
  25. This is the original 15Cwt CMP and 6 pounder anti-tank gun from Peerless/Max. I know there are newer, better kits out there, but this is the one I have, and its fun seeing what I can do with it. On the gun, I've replaced all the tie-downs with fine copper wire, drilled out the elevation wheel, filled the sink holes in the carriage tongues and replaced the weld beads, added pins and chains at the spade end and refined the spades, and on the forward splinter shield, made hinges on the lower shield and hooks and eyes from fine brass wire so that it is articulated. On the CMP, I've open
