Revell 1:24 Mercedes-Benz 300 SLR “Uhlenhaut Coupé”

Every now and then I like to build some cars in 1:24 or 1:25 scale. It makes a change from aircraft and camouflage. I mostly like all the technical stuff which usualy gets hidden when a build is ready and completed. The re-edition of the famous [...]

Airfix 1/12th scale Bentley ‘Blower’

Hi all This is my first post after just joining imodeler. Cars are not my usual subject having been a vintage aircraft enthusiast (when I say vintage I mean from about 1915 up to about 1965 so Eindecker to Vulcan really!) since I was the age of [...]

Pirana,The Man from Uncle Spy car 1/24

Bitten by the nostalgia bug when AMT reissued this kit, I quickly acquired one, not realizing that the packaging was better then the kit, or maybe I shouldn't do autos,I couldn't wait to finish it. this kit was so fiddly and ill fitting I almost[...]

Revell 1/24 1960 Corvette

Something a little different for me, a car. Haven't build one since I was 14, and I remember it being a gray gull wing Mercedes. Was prodded into doing this kit from a coworker who builds lots of cars and trucks. The kit was boxed as Skips Drive[...]

This was an Airfix kit I got some years ago "for my daughter". It's about 1/16th scale I'd guess. Something fun and different to build. Had to convert Wallace from standing to sitting and added some carrots from my daughters 'My little pony' se[...]

WW1 Model-T Ford Ambulance, Western Front 1918

ICM 1/35 scale with Master box figures. Nice simple little kit that was fun to build. Well except for the decals! Not sure if I just got a bad bunch but they were a nightmare to apply. As soon as they came out of the water they kept folding over[...]

1/6 Scale Tamiya Harley-Davidson AMF Electra-Glide FLH1200

Recently acquired this one and, since it's a hard-to-find kit I'll be building this one with some special attention to details. While searching for a release date for this kit I discovered that it is not listed any longer on the Tamiya web si[...]
