McLaren F1 GTR Longtail

Trying to follow Rob's Typhoon posting must be like trying to follow Elvis Presley on stage, so here goes, you can boo me off if you like. When Gordon Murray was McLaren's chief designer he was tasked with designing the ultimate GT road [...]

Kawasaki Ninja ZX-12R

This is another of Tamiya's 1/12 scale motorcycle kits, this time a road going Kawasaki. I originally set out to make only racing bikes, so this one makes a slight change. The ZX-12R was introduced in 1999 to meet the growing demand for [...]

The little Woodie from H#@%*

This is a study of what not to ever do and I did it. I almost took a trip to the GG Bridge, not for me, but to thrown this POS over the side and into the Bay. I got a call to build a model of a 1929 Ford woodie. It is an AMT 1/24th scale [...]

Bike Fest - Ducati Desmosedici

I thought I had better join in the current mini motorbike fest here on iModeler, so, here's the Tamiya 1/12 Ducati Desmosedici Moto GP machine from the 2003 season. Yes, I'm sorry, it's yet another red Ducati, but can you really have too [...]

LA County Sheriff Patrol Car

Well this one happened quite by accident, (no pun intended) I was at the Hobby People in Santa Clarita California talking models with the Dudes when in walked a LA County Sheriff sergeant. It was like the western movies when the sheriff [...]

Revell Ford T 1910 in 1/32

This kit is part of the Revell highway pioneers (for cars included), old kit from the 80's. Done almost 60% from the scratch (windshields and frames, front suspension, horn, retractable top, steering wheel, ...) After this one, I am not [...]

’78 Season Brabham BT-46

This Formula 1 Car was powered by a Alfa-Romeo 12 cylinder engine. The Brabham team was owned by Bernie Eccelstone before he bought F1, designed by Gordon Murray & the #1 car was driven by Niki Lauda . John Watson campaigned the second [...]

The Ghost of Gasoline Alley

Here is one you might have seen around in different publications. I am still kinda proud of this one. Old Monogram kit. I paid bucks for this kit, then they re-released it a few months later. Oh well. Photographed by my son Sean on a [...]
