    1/12 Porsche 956

    Imster - this build in awesome - much like the "Newman" done by Eric Cole on f1m.com. a while back. Your attention to detail is fantastic. On the brake calipers - the "brass" bits you turned are they accurate? for the time period? I don't have the MFH 956 book you have but I question the accuracy of the modification you made to the "caliper pistons" - the cars I remember of that period used 2 separate caliper halves that were bolted together and the caliper pistons entered from the middle of the caliper into the cast and machined bores. Were the calipers a single casting for that era? On modern brakes where a single casting is used or on billet brakes like you see on some motorcycles "Yamaha" they used this technique you used on the 956 calipers, but I'm interested to know if that was also used on the 956? I have the MFH 88' 962 "Shell" #17 kit in the stash for later along with my XJR9-LM and 787B. I would expect that if yours are correct for the period then I will need to do the same on the calipers of the 962 I have. You have come such a long way since the first time I saw your work on "eScale". I think you do some of the best WIPs around - lots of pics and clear descriptions of what you did - I have learned much from your builds. Please let us know when you are back at the bench once you are set up in Canada - You will make a great addition to the North American builders - lol Cheers John

    Thanks John. Yes, that would be the more obvious place for them, but I like to be different ๐Ÿ˜. As for the tint, I did that on the Ducati I built, this was just trying to show an alternative method ๐Ÿ‘

    Thanks Mates. Mark, the font is called nothing_you_could_do But you still have to edit it in a vector program. The SVG file I can provide you with if you like. Can you easily cut in a plotter.

    Nice work Mueller, I have this bike myself! Just a question, what font did you use for the 'Red Porshe killer' logo, I need to make some myself if I can... Mark D

    Not sure to be honest. Most of the time Iโ€™m fortunate and donโ€™t get hit by customs.

    67 Corvette

    I scored this recently on ebay for a good price. I was going to use it for another project but when i opened it i decided to build it. i am going to build it box stock apart from the wheels i am using the wheels from a revell 32 ford that have been dechromed. So far i have painted the chassis and suspension and painted the wheels. her are a few photos and a mock up of what it will look like. Thanks for looking Lee

    Red Porsche Killer

    Update ! The font I have revised again. Is now closer to the original. Let it dry first ...... On the weekends comes the clearcoat .
  19. Really nice work. Can I ask why youโ€™ve masked off the area for the badge before clear coat?

    30 model a coupe

    I do not even know American cars, but your Hot Rod looks very nice! In the movie American Graffiti, there is such a car, is this also a 30 Ford?
  21. Class .... and very nice to look at, are the valves even with it?

    Honda RC166

    Imster, your work is top notch. I am just getting started on the RC 166 and have a question. How did you remove the factory 'bolts' on the tachometer mounting plate without damaging the raised lip around the edge? I'm trying to add as much detail as I can along with the Tamiya upgrade kits for this awesome bike.

    Tamiya Yamaha YZF-R1M

    Followed along Dallas both the videos and the postings - Really well done Your artistic license with the paint scheme and the decals is great. Much better than what everyone else had done. The only thing I would have done different would be to have put the decals of "the Doctor" on the windscreen and not the side fairing Also the way I tint the windscreens is to paint them with Tamiya TS "smoke" sprayed thru an airbrush.and airbrushed to the underside of the windscreen It allows for varying the "darkness" of the tint depending on how many coats you apply - Anyhow - great addition to the website Dallas Cheers John
