  1. 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

    Hi all Richard - new member from Nottingham area Been modelling for 50+ years but looking to up my game regarding detailing rather than just building kits This is my first project delivered yesterday by the postie, no 1 in my alltime road car list Many rank amateur questions to follow if you can help, I will start a separate build thread
  3. So I have had this kit for quite a few years now, and after getting a few kits under my belt I thought I would make a start. I ordered a Photo Etch kit, and just used a few pieces from it as I am new to photo etch parts. Paint wise I used a Ford Automotive Purple straight out of a rattle can.
  4. Hello All, This one has also been on the 'shelf of doom' for some time. Probably about 4 or 5 years... It's the Hasegawa Ferrari 348 tb. It'll go well with the other Ferraris that I have been working on. What with the 308 having been finished, and the 288 GTO nearly complete, I thought that I would clear the decks of old builds and add this one to the list of 'in progress'. The box. A pretty car, if not quite so beautiful as the 308 & 288... The sprues. It doesn't look a lot, but the engine is already built and almost ready to be put aside. ...
  5. This kit was bought from a charity shop together with a Jaguar Something or other. Cost about £5.00 some ten years ago. My last modelling a diorama took some months I was looking for something easy and cheap to bash out hopefully over a weekend. The chassis went together really well with all four wheels touching the glass plate. There after most things went wrong. I tried a quick spray gloss on the clear parts.... that didn't work even after days of sanding and polishing. A home made decal to hide some of the worst areas of the glass didnt work it came out far too pale. I made some clear part
  6. Finished about 30mins ago, so please don't touch the paintwork yet, OK ? Not the best fitting or most detailed kit, but as a car it's utterly jaw-dropping !. Please feel free as ever to ask any questions, make any comments or add any criticism. Next car build will probably be another RoG kit, either a 599 or a McLaren. AFN Ian.
  7. Hi all Haven't posted much in the way of build photos as this one just didn't seem to appeal to many. It may still be that way but it is what it is and I enjoy doing them. So, this is a hand carved Ferrari (the eighth I've done of this model), but this time I wanted to hack it from nice woods ... mahogany and padauk ... with some light coloured veneer, then give everything a highly polished lacquer finish. Decided to do a matching pattern on the base just for fun. Not highly detailed as I like my wooden models mostly to emphasize and concentrate on the
  8. Finished this today. Niki Lauda's 1974 Formula 1 Ferrari 312B/74 in 1/43rd by CAR, an acronym for Costruzione Automodelli Roma. I got this kit off eBay and had never heard of the maker. I also picked up one more kit made by them of a Shadow DN9B which I kind of started today. Information on the net is thin but judging by notations on the instructions it appears to be from 1983 and CAR was based in Rome. There is some indication of a connection to Bosica later...maybe someone involved with CAR went on to found or work for Bosica, I'm not really sure. Regardl
  9. Next on the bench - a pair of 'Prancing Horses': Fujimi's 246 'Dino' - my first 'enthusiast series' kit with a parts count of 237 according to the box-lid. Building this simply because it was the first Ferrari I ever saw in the flesh, it was pale yellow, driving through Southport sometime on a Saturday afternoon, in the early 1970's... and nobody in school would believe me when I told them on the Monday. The 458 is the RoG kit and is a much easier build ! For both cars I used the
  10. Hi everyone, It's been a while since my last post and it's about time I get back on here. Today I'm sharing a build that just finished up a couple weeks ago. It's Fujimi's 1/20 Ferrari F92A (reboot of an old Modeler's kit). The Ferrari F92A was Ferrari's challenger for the 1992 F1 season. And it was one hell of a challenge. Equipped with an ill-designed active suspension and experimental aerodynamics, the car proved to be an absolute handful. The drivers were Ivan Capelli, an up-and-coming young driver, and Jean Alesi, a man no-one in the paddock could argue lacked tale
  11. We have 2 new or re-issued Tamiya car kits in stock now. First up is the new 1/20 Ferrari SF70H. This has marking options for Vettel's or Raikkonen's car at the 2017 Australian Grand Prix Also now in stock is the re-issued Tamiya 1/12 Caterham Super Seven BDR kit This is a limited re-issue and they are selling fast
  12. More Ferrari time. Here is Jody Scheckter's Ferrari 312T4 driven to the 1979 World Driver's Championship. Built from the Racing 43 kit, box stock with Tamiya acrylics, lacquers and PPG auto urethane clear. Nice kit, no real issues in building it except the windscreen, which I'm less than happy with. Rather than provide a vacform screen you're given a paper template and a rather stiff piece of clear acetate to form it from. Far from ideal. I've got a few others that use the same method and I'm contemplating just ignoring the windscreen all together....or hunting down so
  13. Marching forth with more Ferraris. Here we have the 1/43rd Hi-Fi Automodelli kit of the 1981 Ferrari 126 depicting the car Villeneuve raced at Monaco that year. Built box stock with addition of a photoetch Tameo racing harness. Tamiya acrylics & lacquers with PPG urethane clear for paint. Kit built without problems and looks OK in the end, though it's probably one of my less favorite F-1 Ferraris from any era.
  14. OK, on with the Ferrari postings. Here is the 1988 F1/87-88 in 1/43rd from Tameo depicting the Italian Grand Prix wing car of Gerhard Berger. Berger and his teammate, Michele Albereto, took 1-2 that day and it proved to be the only race of the '88 season not won by McLaren. I love Luca Tameo's F-1 kits. I've built a few and each one has been a tour de force in engineering, mastery and execution. Even his very earliest less sophisticated efforts. This one built easily and quickly, and I used my standard Tamiya lacquers, acrylics and two part auto urethane in completing
  15. Well, we're pretty much settled in after our move and I'm back at it. Here's my 1985 Ferrari 156/85. Built from the Hi-Fi Automodelli kit box stock except the addition of belts. Tamiya paints with two part urethane clear. This is the last of my Hi-Fi Ferraris. I think they largely where produced concurrent with the F-1 seasons through the 80s, like this one likely came out in '86. They're simple kits, much like Tameo's early efforts, but engineered and executed pretty well so they build up nice enough. Decals can be a little finicky, but do the job. I've enjoyed building them (I've
  16. Last one for a while, we're packing up for a move next week and then I have my next round of chemo right after so I've no idea when I'll be able to get back to building. 1986 Ferrari F1/86 1/43rd Scale from Hi-Fi Automodelli. Pretty much like the others, essentially box stock with addition of foil & etch racing harness. Tamiya paints, urethane clear. One exception. The upper A-arms where missing from my kit so I had to carve new ones. Just once piece that slides through the nose. Made it out of sheet plastic, fortunately it's the same part in a kit I had of the late season '85
  17. Yet another F-1 Ferrari, this time the Contructor's Championship winning 1983 Ferrari 126C3 of Rene Arnoux. Built box stock, with the addition of seat belts, from the 1/43rd Hi-Fi Automodelli kit. Plus a couple group shots of my collection so far. And here are a couple group shots. 1970, 1974, 1983, 1984, 1987. I will be finishing the 1986 car soon and will post new group shots then.
  18. Yeah, it's all I've been building lately. This 1/43rd 1987 Ferrari F1.87 is from Hi-Fi Automodelli. Box stock except for the addition of a racing harness. Tamiya paints, urethane clear. Very simple, clean, quick building kit. I love these late 80s turbo cars. They had nice, simple, clean lines....I guess the early 90s naturally aspirated cars did too though, so...
  19. Here's a 1970 Ferrari 312B. SMTS 1/43rd, Clay Regazzoni, 1st-Monza. Box stock. Tamiya paints with urethane clear. SMTS kits tend to build themselves once painted. No complaints.
  20. Finished this 1984 Ferrari 126C4 Formula 1 car recently. 1/43rd, Hi-Fi by Automodelli. Box stock except the addition of belts from food wrapper foil and some spare BBR PE hardware. Tamiya paints with urethane clear. I've got a number of these Hi-Fi F-1 Ferraris I'm slowly working my way through. They're simple but nice kits that don't present much in the way of problems except sometimes the decals are kind of dried out.
  21. Today I finished this 1/43rd Starter Ferrari 312PB. It represents the car Mario Andretti and Jacky Ickx drove to win the 6 Hours of Daytona in 1972. Box stock. Largely Tamiya paints, acrylic and lacquer, with two part urethane automotive clear. The decals had dried out and a number of them shattered as I was applying them. I eventually wised up and coated the rest with Micro Scale liquid decal film. I love old Ferrari racing cars and these simplified Starter kits are loads of fun to build and paint.
  22. Hello All, I'm calling this done. Finally got the decals on. All six of them! Apart from that front wheel, I am really pleased with this one. So, pictures: On the whole, I enjoyed working with this kit. It would however, seem that Italeri kits suffer from wheels that stick out a bit from the body. The same happened with the Lamborghini Diablo... Thanks for looking. Cheers, Alan.
  23. Such is my appetite for modelling at the minute, I don't think the GB's I've entered are going to be enough for me. I've therefore decided to start a WIP for the F2007 which has been calling to me for quite some time now. Just to set expectations, I plan to dip in and out of the build over the coming months and it may even turn out to be a KUTA subject. Anyhow, the kit came with some aftermarket decals and I originally wanted to use the 'Marlboro' wording. However, I've decided to build the Kimi / Brazil configuration which, as many of you will be aware, was the 2007 winning combi
  24. Here's the Ferrari F2007 that Kimi raced back in 2007 at the British GP. Not a bad build and went together well considering it's a Revell model.
  25. Took a l-o-n-g time to get finished, but finally completed the Esci Ferrari 'Berlinetta' last week. Definitely not my best work and half of the reason for that is my own lack of skills, but the other 50% is down to the quality (or lack of) in the kit. That said, if you really want a 1:24 SWB in your cabinet, and I did, then other than finding a rare Italeri or Ultra-rare Gunze kit, then this is pretty much your only choice. OK enough talking here's some photos: Please feel free to make any cr
