Hi to all:

I'm presently doing Fujimi's 1/24 Sil-80 (Mako's car).

I've made some minor improvements as opening the front air intakes, building an intercooler, making some improvments to the exaust system and changing the seats and the stearing whell. I'll still need to add the 4pt safety belts and some other stuff.

Update

Thank you guys for all your kind words!

I've had some problems with the body paint finish and had to completly strip it!

My interest for cars is quite recent and my previous models were mainly about military themes, were bright, highly polished finishes are not very important!

The undercarriege and the interior are allmost done! Here are some newer photos!

Hope you like them!

P.S.: I live in Portugal and I bought this model at Hobby Link Japan! The models them selfs are not very expensive, but as it comes from outside the EC I had to pay many € for taxes and other expenses in the costums!!! I also have the Tak (Takumi)'s Ae86, but the undercarriege details is not quite so good!

I bought Bunta's Impreza model kit a while ago - painted it blue rather than steel blue mica like the directions told me to.

Here are pics.

Although not really related, my latest project is an MK4 Toyota Supra.
Will need some work converting it to the 1995/7 model, since the Tamiya kit is of the 1993 version. And gonna need 18'inches Volks TE37 wheels...

Hope you like it!

Now, I'm working on takumi's ride, the tofu shop ae86. I'm also using the fujimi kit, but this one is far poorer in detail (mainly in the undercariage). I'm try to detail it somehow!

Here is a photo:

By the way, anybody has photos from the front and rear suspension of these toyotas? They would be very helpfull if you could share them!

Thanks

I'm from Italy, in 2005, august I made a trip in Japan and Ibought some merchandise at Mandarake (Shibuya, Tokyo) and Mr Craft (Ebisu, Tokyo)
See the photo below

I paid about 8 US dollars for the Fujimi's Hachi-Roku model! biggrin.gif , 4 for the EK9's keyring and less than 2 for the Project D's FD in a Capsule Station

Ehm I don't know... When I was in Tokyo the Project D was in progress on TV...
When I bought the EK9 I chose between the Civic and the Hachi-roku

(The paper in the photo refers to the FD, not ot hte keyring happy.gif

Hi:

R33skyline, the picture you 've posted shows the box of the model I'm presently doing!
It's a pain to look to the chassis!!! Body and interiors are OK!

Yesterday I spent a couple of hours doing the brake disks for the front and rear wheels!
But I still have to figure out how I'm going to but them in place! My best guess is to glue them directly to the wheel (the wheels wounln't turn after assembly)! I'm rebuilding part of the suspension, mainly in the rear axis!

I'll post some more pictures in a near future (at least I hope so, because my work is leaving less and less time for models)!

Thanks for all your interest and kind works

Cheers

Wow, looks great.

Marco, what kind of paint did you use for the body of the SilEighty? You said it has a couple flaws but it looks great in the pics.

Also did the model come with English instructions or is it just kind of follow the pics/diagrams? I am looking at the BNR32 GT-R model. Thanks smile.gif

Thanks again for your ever kind words!

javierel22, I'm from Portugal and I don't find fijimi ID kits around here either! I had to order them from an online shop, but paid extra € for custom taxes and fees!!!

As you can imagine, the instructions were in japonese!!! I just follow the diagrams, but for most of it you can recognise the parts even without a diagram!!!

dub-c, I used Tamiya TS-XX medium blue (I don't remember the numbers - I'll check them when I arive home), and above that aplyed some coats of TS-13 clear! To top it up, a couple of polishing sessions with Tamiya compound!

And believe me when I say thare are many mistakes!!! For instance, I usually aply every coat with my airbrush (even Tamiya aerosol paints)! But when applying the 1st clear coat, I got laisy and applyed it direct from the can!!! As I'm not used to it, I overlood the model in clear, creating huge runs the totaly destroyed the blue finish! I had to sand everything and worked with what surface detail was left!

I hope to avoid this type of errors in my future models!!!

Cheers

Marco Preto

Thanks for the response Marco.

I was at a hobby shop over the weekend and they had the Intitial D FD, 86, and R32 GT-R. I may go back and get the R32 GT-R soon.

Hi:


Dub-c, if you buy that R-32 GTR tell us how good it is!

I intend to do the black sinister bnr32, but I woun't use the fujimi kit! I got a great deal with a Tamiya Skyline GT-R (R-32) and I can't prase this kit enougth!!!

It's (or at least looks like) a great model, very well detailed, and includes the full engine bay!

As the ID GT-R is allmost stock, I'll use this kit to do it (just don't know when)!

If you like to see what is possible to do with this kit, take a look at http://www.spc.org.uk/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=56

This guy realy knows how to do his models!!!

Cheers

Marco Preto

P.S.: By the way www.spc.org.uk is a great source of inspiration/informtion!
