Tamiya 1/12 yamaha virago xv1000.

This is my take on Tamiya's Yamaha XV1000..... Built from the box except that I removed the fake chrome plating and used Alclad for all the metal bits. I decided to paint it in a custom "retro" style scheme with Tamiya's Pearl Clear overall to g[...]

1963 Corvette Stingray, ‘route 66’,1/24 Revell.

And now for something that doesn't shoots, fires at or blows up things. One of the coolest TV shows on in the early 1960's was 'route 66', it had two guys driving across the America[and Canada] in a Corvette, working at odd jobs and interacting[...]

John Deere 4430

I grew up on a farm with green tractors, and as kids my school mates and I used to have tug-of-wars over whether John Deere or IH were the better tractors. Sometime around my early teens I built the Ertl Massey-Ferguson 1155 tractor which was a[...]

1/20 scale Tamiya Snap Loc 1993 T93-00 Lola Ford IndyCar by Don Weixl

I picked up this 1/20th scale kit at an estate sale partially built for $10 Canadian. The original price tag on the box was $35.00. Some minor sub assembly painting was done. The instructions say the kit was released in 1993. I didn’t know what[...]

Tamiya 1/12 YAMAHA YZF-R1M.

This is my Tamiya Yamaha YZF-R1M. Built almost straight from the box using Mr Color and Tamiya lacquer paints. The metallic effects are Alclad but with a couple of coats of Mr Color clear so it looks like automotive lacquer. I lost the suspensio[...]

Kawasaki ZX-RR

Hello again! This is Kawasaki's attempt at a Moto GP bike, boasting their famous 'Ninja' branding. I think this bike is from the 2006 season, so will have a 998cc engine and will generate round the 240bhp mark. The kit is a Tamiya 1/12, and is[...]

Vintage Revell Chevrolet Truck 1955

Following my project to restore or even to build vintage models which bring me good memories, now I went to this 1955 original Revell mold. My oldest brother, 81 now, had one and it was probably the very first scale model I had seen, I suppose[...]

Ford Thunderbird (no, is that a Mustang lol) Tribute

Here's my Thunderbirds Tribute based on a specialty car Ford built. It's based off Revell's 1/24 prepainted 2014 Mustang GT. With a fun build in mind I decided not to do anything that would cause me to cut up the original plastic, only add thing[...]

Tamiya Brabham Martini BT44B – 1/12

Kit: Tamiya 1/12 Brabham BT-44B - 12018-3500 This is an amazing kit, especially considering it was released 45 years ago. The fit is nearly perfect which is saying something given the complexity of the kit. There are in excess of 300 parts wh[...]
