  1. Looks great to me, I dig the colour. A really great looking build. Interested in see your next one.
  2. All good guys, I appreciate the interest. We build for the pleasure it gives us. I like to challenge myself with complicated, tedious proscesses such as cutting all those dashes, just to see if I can do it.
  3. Beautiful build. Glass smooth paint .
  4. Thanks Immy. The faces are just cast resin, using two part silicon putty to make a basic one part mold and Tamiya pit crew faces as the masters. The paint effect is a series of layering and latex of black over "chrome" paint. Simply paint your base colour, splatter the latex over it with a tooth brush then paint the second colour.
  5. This started out as a pre built evilBay acquisition. It was completely assembly and missing a rear wing, and the drivers side (right side drive) hub/brake duct assembly, many of the locating pins for the rear suspension had to be redrilled and pined. For the missing parts I cast new bits from another 787b kit I have. Immy gave me some PE bits which are on this, such as the from intake grills, wing ends, gas filler rings and rad faces. I added in the support rods for the intake box and the wiring you can see. I originally started this a year ago this past Halloween with that as my main theme, hence the faces which leave the build with a macabre feel. This is all paint no decals at all. All the dashes were hand cut masks measuring 1mmx3mm, they took 8hrs to cut, then 4hrs to lay down over the chrome base and another 1hr to remove them all. Over all there is about 15hrs in the paint alone.
  6. Real sharp looking build. Very nice looking engine detail, very nice hard line work.
  7. This is simply an incredible amount of detail showcasing some really mad skills. You plane guys sure put a ton of work and detail into areas that are only seen once during the assembly process then forever hidden away. Awesome work all round.
  8. Thanks, I agree, Totally weird, not my bag either but was fun just the same.
  9. I built this about 9yrs ago for a friend. Lots of add on's and non kit specs such as the engine, wheels, just some more fun and out of the box build.
  10. Nice clean build, the wheels are spot on.
  11. Wow, beautiful work. The work on the pipes is killer.
  12. Very cool and very unique, I dig it.
  13. Ha, I liked this on fb over the weekend. Top notch piece or work.
  14. Absolutly amazing work and attention to micro detailing. Fantastic Immy.
  15. Uglier then ever, sooo many winglets here and there.
  16. First build back after about a year, not without it's issues. Still good to be back. Lighting sucks, sorry, my iPad does not like the spectrum from the LEDs. Edit: I couldn't stand looking at that messed up windshield and the fact I totally forgot to do the panel lines. Polished the crap out of the windshield with the following wet sand paper, 400/600/1500/2000/2400/3200/4000/6000/8000/12000 then a mix of corn startch and ultra sound gel. Then added more weathering. Last three pics are of fixed build.
  17. A beautiful F1 car and a beautiful. Back in the day when F1 cars were works of art and actually had flow.
  18. Wow, very nice looking build. I have never seen one of these built up before, super work all round.
  19. Stunning! I really dig it. The red with the black really makes this car sing. The detail pick out of the body hardware is a very nice touch.
  20. Wicked looking ripper. How many coats of clear are on there? It looks awesome.
  21. Some really great looking paint and carbon work on this build, beautiful colour. Congrats. Btw I see two signs on the pillar between the doors of the garage, one is no smoking, what is the other one, no vaping? Just curious. I don't recognize it.
  22. Wow! What a fantastic build, clean and crisp. I really dig it. Two thumbs up on this one.
