Never seen a KP61 starlet model b4. Where did u find it and who make these? I've bee looking for one. Cool build btw.


Thank you very much! This was modified to look like a Starlet using a Toyota Tercel kit ( hard to find as well).
A lot of cutting, reshaping and whatnot.
In no way perfect , but its a nice add to my collection.

I am guessing that is the Aoshima 'Grand Chan' edition of the laurel.

first question you are gonna get on that 510 is where can one buy it? Is it resin or scratchbuilt?
Will you make more? :mrgreen:

Awesome looking laurel and the dime wagon is sweet. So far the 4th one have seen someone make. I have plans to make one as well, just not so soon..lol

Brendon, thats a sweet little truck. Engine detail and all. 8) what did you use as a donor kit? Looks like a dato 720??

Long time lurker...first time poster.

Recently decided to start getting back into modeling after about 7 years...I used to suck at it, lets hope my OCD ways now will make them better.

Went to the local hobby shop last week and picked this up:
Image

Ordered a set of Fujimi OZ Futura's off ebay..I'll make em fit.

For the time being I laid the body over a set of TE37's I have from a Corolla kit that I've never done.
Image

Going to get another model after I get paid...figure if I have two or three going at once it'll prevent me from rushing one.

Bought it for $5, only fault is that the windshield is split in two. :C

Smells like the 80's too.

I love those City Turbos

I've started many models but these two are the only ones I've ever finished.

I apologise for the dim phone pics and for posting about a car from 1999 on a classic car forum.
I don't have the patience for model building (or the skill), and I have incredibly unsteady hands, so generally when I try building some cheap revell kit, I fail because something about revell kits just makes them take forever to set. So it falls apart, I get discouraged, and abandon the model. But on both of these Tamiya GT-Ones I had no trouble at all, even when I was doing the really difficult to get right turbo-intercooler setup. The black car is sort of the runt, during building I placed the bulkhead backwards, and that same quick-set that made the model so easy also made it impossible to fix without breaking the body, so I had to leave the engine unfinished and sealed the engine cover on. I also was unable to do the taillamps, so I gave it a really unrealistic central lamp off a little toy Ducati that I broke. The paint is just basic matte spray-paint. It did warp the plastic (An effect I was unaware of when painting the model for the first time ever) but it's only really on the undertray. I had to remove the wheels before painting (because i knew the paint would not be kind to the tyres) so the black car does not roll. It's also got a bit too much camber from very slowly settling on itself, like some sort of bizarre stanced race car. I didn't mean for that to happen

The white car is the one I bought in case I botched the other one, which proved shrewd as I did exactly that. It didn't get paint because I was very paranoid about ruining both of my expensive Tamiyas (this was before I had a job) and the decals were minimal to keep with the style the car inadvertently got by my laziness and inability to place a decal without tearing it. It has no paint, but I did black out the pillars, and some bits in the engine bay (brake ducts and part of the intercoolers mainly). I fully intend to build more Tamiya kits, but I'm probably just going to have a bunch of white cars with white interiors and really strangely chromed internals. I'm fine with that though, because at least they will all match

Also, I'm sorry if my poor model-building skills make anyone mad that I did a terrible job on TWO Tamiya kits. I know they might not be accurate, but at the very least, they don't look bad (unless accuracy is something on which you judge models, in which case, yes they look bad. i apologise)
