A couple of quick ones – Fujimi 1/24 Porsche 917s

The Porsche 917 is one of the most iconic sports racing cars of all time, largely for its high speeds and power outputs. It was made into a movie star by Steve McQueen in his 1971 film The 24 Hours of Le Mans. The 917 is a race car which gave [...]

Tyrrell 020

Tyrrell 020, Tamiya kit, very simple, painted with Tamiya spray cans and acrylics/Humbrol enamel. I added little detail, photo-etched bolts and nuts, Studio27 seatbels, wires, cables and some foil to replicate the heat shield in engine compartm[...]

Mr Ugly, a mail delivery van with a sting

Had an AMT Ford ´40 Delivery van in 1/25 scale lying in my cellar since 2005. The quality wasn´t great and I had lost my heart finishing it right after opening the box more than a decade ago. The good side of this I had a fresh start when I fina[...]

Kawasaki Ninja H2R

Merry Xmas everyone. This is my last build of 2017, the Tamiya 1/12 H2R. To label the bike a Ninja is somewhat misleading... One would just assume another Ninja would be an evolution of Kawasaki's flagship sports bike... The H2R is a non street [...]

Nissan GT-R ‘Z-Tune’

Well here's a thing - not a race-car, not an 'exotic', not even a NASCAR, just a VERY fast limited edition (only 20 units (re)built) of one of the greatest cars you've never heard of !! Not going to go in to the history of Nissan's GT-R series [...]

VW Buss

Another old build I did many years back. A 1/24 scale VW buss.I just getting the hand of weathering rust and aging effects on my models. I still had a long way to go but it is nice to see how far one has gotten over the many years of modeling.

Zis 151 6×6 Truck

Here is a very very old build. It is a 1/35 scale zis truck. The only effect I added was a slight hue tint to make the photo look slightly aged. I thought it looked convincing enough.

(..yet another) Porsche – 911 GT1

Not too much to say. I bought the kit from a UK seller on eBay - because the box was worn & scuffed, it was a steal even with the postage down here to Middle Earth. It arrived on a Monday and by the Wednesday I was deep in to the build and [...]

Time for another Porsche

This is another Tamiya 1/24 kit, this time the Porsche 934 Turbo RSR. Based on the 930 Turbo road car, the 934 was developed to race in the then Group 4 racing category started in 1976. The 2993cc engine had a maximum output of 485 bhp, 50 car[...]

Ferrari 250 GTO

I took a break from building air racers and put this together for a club contest. Basically done right out of the box with the exception of the plug wires, from the Fugimi kit.
