  1. Hello fellow modellers, I have been dying to ask this question but haven't got many answers. I want to attempt a custom wideobody on a 1/24 scale car. It is virtually impossible to get tamiya 2 part epoxy putty in the uk from my experience. If you know anywhere that sells it please let me know. I have looked around and milliput seems to be coming up a lot. Which type of milliput would be the best for my purpose as there is the standard, turquoise, black, white etc. If not milliput what else could I use that would work well. I have heard about gr
  2. Hi All, The rule is as simple as this: If it's a motorbike, car or truck, it's in (including AFVs) !! Sport, Rally, Road, Commercial, Recreational, Old, New, Military, Public; the list is endless. wimbledon99 (Co-Host ) Black Knight Col.

  3. This is my build of the Lamborghini Aventador Anniversario from Aoshima. Done with Tamiya spray paints. [/url
  4. Hi Everyone. It has been a while but I am still plodding along with my kit building when I can. Those who know of me will know that I usually like to add lighting to my builds but as there isn't any kits that take my fancy at present I am building some kits without lighting. This is my latest project, the 1:25 scale Revell '55 Chevy Indy Pace Car. I'm not really into highly polished showroom cars but one thing that always gets our attention is all of the chrome parts that these kits usually have and this is one of those kits. I believe that it must be an old moulding or something as on
  5. Revell 1:25 '68 Chevy Chevelle SS 396 I am obsessed with American car shows, Fast ‘n Loud with Gas Monkey garage being my favourite. Richard Rawlings scours the ‘Interweb’ for old classic cars and re-builds them or flips them for a few dollars profit. The ’68 Chevy SS would be a prime candidate for the monkeys to get their hands on, and when this 1:25 scale Chevy landed on the doormat I was very happy! The 68 Chevy SS, SS is for Super Sport is powered by an all American 6.5L (or 396 cubic inches) V8. The Chevelle SS is a popular muscle car, and many have been restored or modified b
  6. The following article popped up in my Facebook feed the other day, it's about cleaning up and "detailing" as in polishing model cars. It's more about diecast models but might work for plastic kits, especially if painted with automotive paint. I didn't want to post the article without trying it myself and I happened to find a Bburago Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa that I built from a kit a long time ago. I think I was a teenager, no idea if you can even buy these kits any more. Link here to article. Here it is in "barn find" condition having sat in an open box in
  7. Waiting to be able to go out and get some paint for the other builds I stumbled on this box in the stash and knew I had to built it in this GB.
  8. Just finished this kit, and really pleased with the outcome. No real issues with it, apart from the bonnet fit which was terrible.
  9. Revell Porsche 934rsr Martini 1:24 The Porsche 934 is the race version of the iconic 911 Turbo, built for the group 4 FIA rules for the 1976 season. By the time it was replaced in 1978 41 had been produced for the race track. It had a 3l flat six engine mounted at the rear producing from 480-550 bhp. Revell have produced a kit of this car in the classic Martini team colours to sit alongside the other versions including the orange Jargermeister version. This kit is classed as a level 3 kit and is in the normal flimsy end opening box, that is packed with plastic. The body she
  10. Decided to get back into modelling as find it quite therapeutic and love making things. This is the first model I have made in over 10 years so taking some time!! Found the Tamiya MP4/8 kit and the S27 Carbon decals on eBay. Also purchased the photo etched kit which I'll use some of, a full set of decals and an old Tamiya driver & engineer set I'll try to incorporate Here are some pics of my progress so far: Managed to add some small valves to
  11. While looking for something else, I came across this: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/cars/824087/maserati-forumla-one-racing-scale-model-car-auction It piqued my nterest enough to put here, even though the auction took place in 2017.
  12. Hi Everyone, Thanks for having me! I'm a total newbie to Britmodller or indeed posting models on any forum but this place seems to have some really high quality builders/artists. I want to improve my techniques so I'm here to learn from the best. I could quite easily just lurk on here, appreciating everyone's efforts but I've forced myself to post this in order to get better at this great hobby! Nothing like a bit of pressure to get the best out of ya! Like most, I stated modelling as a kid then had a short break of about 25 years. A few years ago, I got the Tamiya Will
  13. Hi While renewing all of the pictures of the builds that I have done because of this Photobucket saga, I came across a few pictures of the build in progress for this kit. They show some of the details that are not visible when the kit was finished. The link to the finished build can be found in the RFI section or by clicking HERE Thanks for viewing.
  14. 'Surf Woody' custom car 1:25 kit from AMT Here we have something completely different, a scale model of a car built by George Barris of Barris Kustoms in the USA. If you don’t know the Barris name you probably know his work including the original Batmobile (from the 60s TV series) and many more film and TV vehicles. The ‘Surf Woody’ was created to carry a motorised surf board with its twin rear wheels to help it drive on the beach and with this kit you can build one of 3 versions, the Surf Woody, Surf Hearse or as a Street Rod. The kit comes in box and is packed with part
  15. One of the few models where I have not added any lights to. I really had a close look but I did not think I would have the patience to add any with such little space to work in. So this is the finished article. Despite the pictures it does have a glossy sheen to it but I need to study and work harder at improving that side of things. Looking at KonaDawgs finished kit I lost heart, as his finished model is amazing. I've never had the patience regarding polishing and have tried a few short (cheap) cuts but it seems I will have to invest in the decent materials and just sit and polish a
  16. A quick question: What type of car would be used by a german WW1 pilot? in 1/32 - would it be german - like a Mercedes or could it be any sort of car? I'm contemplating doing a vignette in 1/32 and would like to include a car, but which one? Can I use any of Airfix' classic carkits? Can you help? Cheers Hans J
  17. Good morning, as my Kawasaki ZX-14 build is nearing completion, I am planning to start on this one next. I haven't made up my mind which colour to go with yet, but i think I might have a go with some Zero paints, especially as they do colour-matched paints for this car. I know a couple of companies make PE sets for this kit, so I may have a look at those too. Any advice you may have on using Zero paints, and building car kits in general, gratefully received! Stayed tuned, I'll put some pictures up later. Cheers, Andrew
  18. Hi Everyone, Here is my 2nd completed project of 2015. This is Revell's 1:24 scale Volkswagen Beetle New Style. This is an almost exact replica of my own car. The colour is very similar and as the model was made in Germany, the model is left hand drive rather than the UKs right hand drive. The kit is painted in Tamiya X-4 blue and black paint. Anyway here are the photos. Thanks as always for looking. Cheers, Rick
  19. Ferrari 250 GTO 1:24 Revell plastic kit The Ferrari 250 GTO was developed as a homogenisation car for Ferrari to enter the FIA group 3 GT car category, built between 1962-64 the GTO means Gran Turismo Omologata in Italian, or Grand Turismo Homologated in English, only 39 where built. The Tubular chassis holds the 3l V12 engine up front, driving the rear wheels through a 5 speed manual gear box. The car carries a Berlinetta style body, (Italian for sporty couple) that was designed using a wind tunnel and track testing; it was unusual in not being designed by a design house or an individu
  20. Hi everybody . I have little problem. I lost my manual where were camos and i searched on internet but i dont found them. Can you post me some camos with colors which can i use, exactly that camo with grey and some blue ? Thanks Marty
  21. UK vehicle registration plates and HGV signage. from BECC signs and flags I have received some samples from a company called BECC who make real reflective stickers, as part of this bundle are samples aimed at vehicle modellers, firstly I received a set of warning and legal signage for UK trucks, and some real reflective registration plates again aimed at UK registered vehicles. All sets come in a zip-lock style bag with some instructions on their use The first set on the review bench is the set aimed at truck models, the sheet is real reflective vinyl that is peal and stick, a
  22. Mercedes Benz 300SL-24 1:24 plastic kit from Revell The Mercedes Benz SL class is the light weight grand tourer of the Mercedes car range, the SL stands for Sport Leicht, or Sport Lightweight car, the SL moniker was first applied to the 300SL gull wing.. The model that has been kitted by Revell came into production in 1989, and production continued until 2003, this car hosted some new safety and comfort features for Mercedes, including an automatically deployed roll over bar, and a massive choice of engines from the 2.8l, through to the mighty V12 in the AMG equipped model, with a choice
