    Caterham R500 Race car - Custom Build - 1/12

    Some great work going on with this - could sit and study it all day!

    Ferrari 812 Superfast

    Here’s my next build - the Ferrari 812 Superfast from Alpha Model. First impressions are very good. Minimal flash and parts fit looks good.

    Ferrari 812 Superfast

    This will be a full video build as well, so here’s the first one:
  4. I started this back in October, but only just getting back to it and realised I'd not posted it up here. So here goes. The first post will be the box contents and some of the extras I plan to use. I picked up the Hobby Design set before even getting the kit, but then I found the Studio 27 set so just had to have that. Box art in all it's glory: On to the contents. I'll let the parts speak for themselves On recommendation, I went for the Hobby Design wheels. Having done a bit of research, they are technically incorrect for the red DTM car, but I'm going to go with them as I prefer the look and it makes it a bit different from all the others Studio 27 CF decals Kit decals. Great to see they are printed by Cartograph so I don't expect any problems from them First detail set - this one from Hobby Design includes lots of photo etch, resin and turned metal rivets Next is the S27 set. Even more detail and quite a bit of white metal parts included. Instructions for both detail sets Studio 27 decals. These are also printed by Cartograph and look high quality as you would expect

    Fantastic Angus! I have that same 3d printer on my wish list, they look really cool!

    Tamiya Ducati 916 (first bike - 2015)

    Nice work, especially for your first bike kit. I know what you mean about kids and time, and it only gets worse! Although, with any luck they will want to join you and you can build together

    Nice clean build Lee.

    Nice little details 👍

    Protar MV Augusta F4

    I love MV’s, but the lack of detail puts me off, plus I’ve not heard good things about Protar kits. I’m not sure I want the hassle of having to rework everything and then end up with an odd-size bike in my cabinet. I’ll be keenly following this and see if you can convince me to get one... 👍

    Tamiya Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti DTM

    Thanks @mueller. I’d had a few requests for a video like this and something I’ve wanted to do for a while, so a perfect opportunity to combine the two.

    Tamiya Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti DTM

    This last update should bring me up to date - I decided to do a video for doing the carbon body, as I'd had a few requests for this:

    Tamiya Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti DTM

    I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but I'm doing this as a dual-build. This one is full detail and will be in the main livery colours - the second is fairly basic, but does have a full carbon body on it...

    Tamiya Alfa Romeo 155 V6 Ti DTM

    Sorry guys - I've been a bit slack on the updates recently, so hopefully this will bring it up to date a bit. The front anti-roll bar is very visible on the real car, but the kit has nothing to represent it, so the rear area in the engine bay is very empty looking. I decided to replicate this with some scratch-building. Using various thickness wire, brass rod, solder wire, plastic sprue and lots of turned metal bolts, rivets and rod ends and hex nuts from RB Motion, Top Studio, T2M and Hobby design - what a mix! PE brackets were also used which I had spares of from years ago. The main bar made up and all the separate components waiting to be attached to it All assembled and painted up - getting on for 60 parts in this little assembly! Final position:

    Tamiya AMG GT3 dual build

    These look to be great kits. Double trouble doing a dual -build. Looking forward to watching them come together.

    Red Porsche Killer Revell 1/9

    Nice work. Certainly something different. I was watching the build progress, although I was quiet for the most part.

    Tamiya Yamaha R1M

    So what started off as a basic, ‘out of the box’ build of the new Tamiya kit, it turned into something more. The kit just begged for extra detail to be added and I had to oblige. Thanks to everyone who followed along the WIP, but to highlight, Zero paints used pretty much throughout with my own paint job on it, finished with 2K diamond clear amd polished up. A few extra wires were added and the kit wires replaced for more accurate scaled equivalent. A bunch of Top Studio, Hobby Design and T2M nuts, bolts and PE heads were fitted throughout. Magnets replace the screws for the fairings and the rest were either covered up or replaced with aluminium tube.

    Tamiya Yamaha R1M

    Great. Thanks Mark. Top Studio have just released a detail set for it as well - currently on pre-order. That's definitely going on my list for me next one.

    That Yammy looks great 👍 Very similar style to the CB400 I've currently got parked.

    Tamiya 1/32nd De Havilland Mosquito

    Planes aren’t really my thing, although I have build a couple. That’s not stopped me from following along with this one from start to finish! I really appreciate you sharing the progress along with your own learning experiences and trials with it. It’s an encouragement to others to try the same and do things they wouldn’t necessarily normally do. It’s hard to believe that you haven’t build planes before this as you’ve built it like a pro.
