If that is the new testors laquer, it lays really nice from the can. The gloss coat in the same line is very nice as well. Goes on too thick it appears, but it thins out and shrinks up very nicely. Good job on the paint!


Thats exactly what happened. went on thick, almost ran (but didn't :mrgreen: ) then as it dried it became thin and even. Thanks for the comments, as soon as i committed to opening a Pete Brock kit i knew i wasn't going to half ass my efforts.
The tail panel and grill will be blacked out. more pics to follow today.

Yay for fart cans!

Went a little crazy with the last order...
Image
Image
Image
Image

then to make the current 1:1 car...
this for the engine.
Image

and the car itself...
Image

Now what to do with the soarer? Bozo it of course!
Image

The Silhouette cars are old motorized chassis models, but they look the part when finished. Now I just have to find the time to do some modeling. I do have a four door Japan Skyline Bozo in progress right now as well. Aoshima needs to quit putting out cool parts and wheels. They are getting me in trouble with the wife!!!

To Build or not to build?: A friend gave me an original Pete Brock Bre Datsun 510 Model, Its sealed and in near mint condition. I know what there worth but i also know that i am not going to sell it. You buy a model for the experience of building it right? Not to put it on a shelf unopened.


Did you check to see if there's a "R" in the model number? If so, it's the '90s re-issue not the early '70s issue. Might make the decision for you. :mrgreen:

Think the originaly model number is #1440 and the re-issue is #1440R? Either way it should have a copyright date on it.

so would i be a fool to open this box?


If it's the original issue, yes. :P

As was mentioned earlier, either get one of the '90s re-issues or better yet use one of the readily available (and cheap) "510 Tuner" kits. It's basically the same kit only with a stock dash, seats, and radiator. :tu:

Yup, got a couple of those kits myself. You can still find them readily available.

This weekend I visited a local store to buy some folders etc. about my 4G Galant. While being there the owner pointed me some model kits of Japanese cars, that according to him have probably been lying there for more than 15 years. The only thing that is missing as far as I know is the electric motor of the Galant (according to the boxes both kits are motorized). Sorry for the bad pictures, I took them with my laptop.

I have been looking through this thread am seeing some very nice workmanship, (and a few people I have seen on other modeling forums…). I thought I’d share this Nostalgic Japanese Car model I built several years ago to offer something a little different.
I think this Mazda 360 was produced by LS, but I am not 100% sure. It is 1/32nd scale and was engineered to have a pull-back motor. In reality it is about the size of a standard 1/43rd scale model.
I used BMF and Alclad for the chrome, the color is a Tamiya aircraft color (a German Light Blue) that looked close enough to one of the factory colors.

Time for another build :twisted:

I decided that my OS Giken TC16 needed some company, so I decided to work on his big brother...a TC24 B1 :twisted: Just like the TC16, I started off from scratch instead of using the stock L24 engine included in the Fujimi S30 kit. I started off fabricating a F54 casting L28 block, then moving on to the head, valve cover, and timing cover. ATM, I've got the long block completed. Here's what I have so far:

Image

Now, she's starting to look at home:D

I also started working on a better engine bay since Fujimi's suck:

Image

That's it for now...

Anyone know if this car came as a plastic 1/24 kit?

Nichimo and Marui did RX3 Savanna's that could be used as a base to build that car. But they are curbside and a bit toy-like as far as the details.

Thanks for the info guys. Just ordered one of them yesterday John.

I suppose it's just matter of getting a kit with a series 1 nose cone (10A) and the smaller flairs/spoilers and getting a sticker set made, but who would make stickers for it?

What is that stuff? Never heard of it, and I don't have a printer either.
