    The fleece and the floor mats are very lovingly implemented and class details on the dashboard.
  3. Hi guys Here I will start a WIP which will probably take some time to get ready. First and foremost, this is not even about the construction but the 3D printing. And I want to share this with you. The first thing on the plan was to reprint the rims of the YZR. Unfortunately, I did not find any drawings on the internet, so I printed them the way I liked them the most. It was not an easy task, because I did not want to succeed in the first 3 D pressure. Constructed with DesignSpark Mechanical. Printed with Elegoo Mars right side kit rim see you next time :)
  4. Fantastic work and the printed parts are a perfect match!

    I am always the devils advocate, and as much as the detail leaves me with my jaw on the floor, The paint job leaves a lot to be desired. ! 😞 "Orange peel' is the curse of all modellers, especially when using the Zero type paints, and something, no matter HOW much 'clear' one lays over the top of the 'finished' colour coats, it will never cover or reduce the dimpled effect to let you have a finish like the real car has. I avoid acrylics and lacquers like the plague, as they have the tendency to dry in mid flight from the air brush nozzel to the model as they are being sprayed, causing the dreaded orange peel effect that is impossible to overcome. Where as, the enamel paints will happily 'lay down' and settle into a mirror finish without any drama when the consistency is right. This 'orange peel' effect robbs a model of a grand finish, no matter how good the detailing. Your build has given me much inspiration to do much more than I usually do, and for that, I am extremely grateful. Thank you for sharing a most interesting build. Red Roo. (y)

    Thanks imster. You have to give it a go! i enjoy building hot rods and modifying models and solving the problems that turn up when you start altering parts.

    Nice work man! Paint is on point especially considering its a rattle can job, stance looks awesome, I love this build! One day I plan to build a custom car, just gotta build up the motivation to do it.

    66 Chevy Suburban

    Here is my version of the Revell 66 Chevy suburban. I have lowered it by fitting a Motobitz front crossmember and suspension and scratch building a rear crossmember to take coilover shocks and notching the frame for axle clearance. I have also scratch built the exhaust as the kit one would no longer fit as the car now sits so low. Wheels are Motobitz resin 22" with the kit hub caps. Paint is Tamiya rattle can French blue with a pearl white roof and finished with Tamiya clear. Thanks for looking, Lee

    I tried to improve the brake pedal and the footpegs.... I filed the pegs below and attached a small piece of pe net to simulate the antiskid ....

    Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Apologies for the over saturated photos, but I got some new 2k hardener so was able to get it cleared and polished so here are the results. I decided to give the Hobby Design carbon decals a try and I got good results. They conform nice and with no tears. A little more work that SMS, but that’s mainly due to them being a little thicker.

    thanks imster nearly finished this one just wrapping up the exhaust as i had to scratch build it so i can get ground clearance. Lee
  28. Based on the glorious 1/12 Tamiya Caterham kit, the only part of the original kit is really just the chassis and body panels (yellow and blue) - just about everything else is scratch built, including 3D printing recently - commissioned by a very patient chap in 2002, lots learnt since! Totally finished now - so on to the pictures! The WIP build can be found here: Thanks for watching! I'll post some photos of the 'source' cars below....to compare!
