Spanjaard (hetspanjaard)

Delorean Back to Future I - WIP

kit is actually quite good. but i really do not like all the cabling in the sides and the few inside, so i will start replacing all of those with wires from different colors.

This should be a fun watch. I had a friend built a full-scale Delorean out of an AMC Pacer back in the 80s.

14. January 2018, 11:35
for sure! 🙂

after quite some research (and not much modelling)... I am thinking in removing a lot of what makes the kit a BTF Delorean, to make it looks like a "plain" Delorean DMC-12, and then add add all the details from scratch....

Looking good, Spanjaard! Replacing those molded on cables will be worth the extra work. Looking forward to seeing more!
10. February 2018, 12:03
thanks Gordon.

Indeed great work so far. Any thoughts on adding lighting? With all the cabling work, it may be worth it 👍
10. February 2018, 14:05
thanks Alec. i do not have the plan clearly defined for it. but i intend to use some lights on it. time circuits, plutonium meter, front lights... we will see. got some tiny SMD Leds . and Finished! | Album by Kees Kleijwegt (1:24) build was really inspirational 😉 I even got some electrical diagrams from him (thanks again Kees)

I love Back to Future and looking forward to see the finished Delorean. Have much fun Spanjaard.

thanks a lot Stefan. unfortunately, this one will be on hold for a while due to lack of time and energy.

I can't wait to see you finish this one!
14. June 2018, 15:14
thansk d hadley... but it is on hold at the moment. i will come back to it as soon as i can. not going to be in shelf of doom 🙂
14. June 2018, 20:46
I think it ended up on the shelf of doom anyway😛 Maybe a little nudge to the front will help inspire you. You can have some of my plutonium😉
14. July 2020, 19:12
I am impressed and inspired by your removal of the outer body wiring. That would have been no fun to paint, and adding actual wires will look more realistic. I wasn't so sure about taking a knife to mine, but now that I've seen your results I have a bit more confidence for doing the same. (I'm still debating whether to try opening at least one of the doors for better visibility into the cabin.)
14. July 2020, 19:37
@Starbase101, that temptation has come to mind to me too.... I have been playing with the idea of getting a second kit, and try exactly that when I can come back to this one....but it requires a lot more surgery and scratch build that this attempt has....
@JD, shelf of doom... ? kind of of, but i hope to be able to go back to the hobby soon... and this time, actually build rather than comment on what others build😉
14. July 2020, 20:09
Sorry If I was insensitive Spanjaard, I don't know what your situation is, I was just teasing you a little because your last post on this thread was in 2018, and I wanted to see you get back at it. 🙁 🙂
14. July 2020, 20:25
no worries JD no problem. I want to get back at it too 🙂

If all goes according to plan, this will not be gathering more dust soon.... 🙂
