Tamiya tyrrell p34 1977 Monaco gp 1/20 scale

Recommended Posts

So I've made a start on the 1st of my 2 builds as part of the group build.

1st up is the tamiya tyrrell p34 in 1/20 scale...now this is a build I've wanted to do since a little boy and I'm FINALLY getting to build 1!!!

1st up is the engine assembly...now trying to paint the Ford emblem on top of the rocker covers proved to be interesting...I ended up plumping for using a cocktail tail stick as all my brushe's were far too big and believe me I have some small brushes...20171004_174224.jpg.5b0abd1dfee03d47dde189baac72587a.jpg

Now since speaking to various people I know there could have been easier ways to do this but at the time I didn't know so yeah...just did it my way!!!

Next we have pictures of the complete engine all painted up in various tamiya acrylic paints and finally a wash using tamiya''s black panel line...20171004_180842.jpg.0d702c0010c55009db60eb8b349da691.jpg20171004_180903.jpg.35dd36c6c3e570e7f56e7d44ff7b625f.jpg

Next up was the gearbox/brakes assembly...no real problems here and again painted using tamiya acrylic's...20171004_175446.jpg.2ad4b3d3523082b488ba264d590d3ae0.jpg20171004_175507.jpg.4ecc29c2c7a13b849de4d09cd8c3996b.jpg20171004_175607.jpg.74bfe9492dc1e6440d8a8b739307eaa7.jpg

Next was attaching the exhaust which most will know are a bit of a pain in the rear but got there in the end then attached the gearbox assembly to the engine...few parts didn't want to fit very well so took a bit of fettling to make it all fit properly but got there in the end...20171005_164325.jpg.8946117bd817f6f84cbc9156a8bdfd8c.jpg20171005_164406.jpg.f03505cf8d3412fa746625d7bcd7133f.jpg20171005_164427.jpg.2cd11114a58d76fc2597655ccd8b71ce.jpg20171005_164624.jpg.d9dcaf4f6823131cd6e20dbcb67bc2e4.jpg20171005_164555.jpg.12f5d73fa2b29c353e0321a749c4ae82.jpg

Well that's about it for now...may I just add that no airbrush has been harmed so far in this build!!!

Thanks for looking

Ade

So I got a spare 2 hours tonight so got a bit of work done on the p34...got the engine/gearbox assembly attached to the chassis...20171011_210615.jpg.ce56b0c461c5b2c4bd6ca54b9204b430.jpg20171011_210640.jpg.88e33c4a446fb4a59dbe8acf9dcf03bc.jpg20171011_210655.jpg.86767d02658fb5bc5bbd7181e0b0c4e6.jpg

After that could resist a cheek mock up pic of the shell on it...20171011_210741.jpg.27176f71c4a920d9a81f430ad1d8c5cf.jpg20171011_210800.jpg.39ff1442f29e0db54aad30a700a104fc.jpgthis will be the next job tomorrow...time to break out the airbrush for the 1st time on this build and start spraying!!!

Now as previously mentioned when assembling the front wheels assembly my big hands snapped a small pin for 1 of the hubs so tonight I drilled the hub...arrayed some rod into hole and then built it up...finally I have both front wheel assemblies built...20171011_210835.jpg.94c840e0bfc7a9f71947d3f8a93ed988.jpg

Well that's it for today...thanks for looking...hopefully an update tomorrow with some bodywork in at least primer maybe even Base coat if all goes well!!!

Nice work. I think the wheel nuts look better than they would have done just plain red.

So it's been a while since I posted an update on this build as I had problems with the body when I zero clear lacquered the body she looked horrendous so I put her back in her box and left her for a while whilst I calmed down about it!!!

Anyway yesterday I did some micromeshing on her and then got the decals on her...20171128_155112.jpg.6704d072270dca3fc3975520190f1a5a.jpg20171128_155045.jpg.7680970ef498ce85f29e3bd043101166.jpg20171128_155031.jpg.f602e82298d66e7729f53d4780e612db.jpg20171128_155019.jpg.a5dba9d76a019255b28f91fd4e4aa96f.jpg20171128_155010.jpg.bb62efee0650a23ccf2b168c127a2329.jpg20171128_154959.jpg.258c4c5ff2904ae65225bdce4314d919.jpg

And then this morning I got her in zero 2k diamond clear...this stuff is just unreal for the shine straight out the brush...pity I have animals and therefore get the odd hair in it bit that's just something I got to live with I'm afraid til the animal go to pet heaven...20171129_132004.jpg.68da68139fcc1d601ae6a8637e77c12f.jpgthanks for looking

Nice work Ade.

 

I take it you can't have it as a 'clean room' then so the pets aren't allowed in, or do they come off your clothes as well?

No pets go in there but their hair is all over everything in the house...a long haired dog and 2 cats you could clean all day but still there everywhere 44!!!

Thanks imster

The slowest build will have been the sheene akai yamaha double build and the lancia 037...they took about 5 months in total...mind building 2 bikes and a car at the same time ain't a great idea!!!hahaha

Thanks
