Nigel Chapman Started the paint stages at last. White primer has gone well apart from scratching part of the chassis so having to repaint the damaged area Doh!
28. October at 18:44:33
Munkyslut Looks good just in primer! The mods are perfect, brilliant job

Nigel Chapman Thanks guys. All those episodes of Kindig Design, Iron Resurrection, Texas Metal, Speed is the new black and Gas Monkey I've watched are starting to pay off.
29. October at 07:44:42
Munkyslut I think you've got better taste than that lot Nigel ;)
29. October at 09:59:13
Nigel Chapman Thanks. I've always been a custom car fan, reading copies of Street Machine and Custom Car from an early age to nowadays watching the TV shows. They are great for showing the build process particularly chassis construction (Texas metal) and body prep/paint (Iron Resurrection) which I try to apply to my model building. It's taken around 30 years but I think I'm getting there.
29. October at 23:27:51
Nigel Chapman Well after 3 days dodging rain shows running to/from the garage I now have my paint job - Subaru Satin White Metallic with Tamiya red splatter. Chris Greathouse - I owe you man, that comment in August was a good call !

Bill Newcomer Did the kit come with all those radios?
28. July at 22:25:55
Nigel Chapman Yes no idea why - so there was one amp, graphic equaliser, what looks like a CD and 2 head units. All had positions on the instructions
29. July at 06:08:50
Munkyslut Nice work Nigel! I love the mag wheels, they look like Radir Rockets, floorpan detailing up to your usual top draw standards too. A pleasure to look at ;)

Nigel Chapman Ok thanks will have a look
24. July at 20:17:12
Munkyslut That's a great link Dominik, thanks for posting. Did the hinges you have break easily?
24. July at 20:51:02
Tim Heimer Dominik, nice work on those doors! Thanks for showing.
24. July at 21:31:59
Nigel Chapman Just had a quick look, some great ideas and inspiration
24. July at 22:06:16
Dominik Weitzer Thank you Mates! much appreciated.

no hinge is broken till yet. On every Event a take it with me, i open and Close the doors for Transport.
25. July at 13:09:13
Bill Newcomer I just viewed the process for what it takes to make working doors on the van. OMG!
28. July at 22:39:58
Nigel Chapman I know that's why I haven't up the courage to try
29. July at 06:07:49
Dominik Weitzer Try it Nigel. I had to figure that out also. It is completely different on the van to make those rear or sliding doors working as on a cars doors. It was a challenge for me also ;)

Any one got ideas on how to make vehicle antennas & aerial's in 1/24-1/25 scale ?
Someone suggested stripped down guitar strings.
Thanks Nigel
15. June at 15:53:28 Share
Ian Oostelbos Auslow in Australia have CB aerials with or without spring mounts for trucks. Only a few dollars Great site actually
https://auslowe.com.au/
16. June at 07:49:43
Nigel Chapman Thanks Ian never thought of that. I think KFS import Auslowe products
16. June at 10:35:09
Spanjaard Stretched spruce?
17. June at 20:26:46
Nigel Chapman Thanks something to consider though never tried it
18. June at 08:16:49
Spanjaard Very easy, and impossible to make it cheaper :P of course, a metallic one is better, specially since it should no break. You can also buy steel wire in different thicknesses, and try which one looks better.
18. June at 20:28:00
Nigel Chapman Thanks, some things to try
18. June at 20:46:56
Ian Oostelbos Spotmodel I just noticed has car aerials for rally etc.
9. July at 12:03:43
Munkyslut Stretched sprue for me too, you can make it whatever shape or thickness you want, cut it to size easily, even in situ
9. July at 12:17:07
Nigel Chapman Thanks for the replies, I wimped out and bought some CB antennas from Auslowe.

However I will try the stretched sprue method as I want to recreate the long whipcord Ariel's that were around the UK in the seventies
9. July at 16:26:33
Munkyslut Just what I intended on the Transit! CB whippers were alll over the U.K. late 70's
9. July at 16:38:05
Nigel Chapman You can still see them sometimes if you look carefully.
9. July at 16:40:00
Ian Oostelbos Still have mine for when I go bush....man I'm old lol

Munkyslut Different! Some very cool looking Appliance 5 spokes there, flame decals are actually a very good style, most decal flames are absolute shite
2. July at 22:08:14
Nigel Chapman Too right, the Japanese do make high quality kits. It was the 70's vibe that made me get it off e-bay.
This is my first rat-look model which I have thoroughly enjoyed building. Just waiting for some bits 'n' pieces from Australia to finish. Photo album will set up shortly

Nigel Chapman All were Slixx decals using their drag racing goodie sheet #2, NASCAR and current style contingency sheets. Each decal was applied individually
