Another fine example of the Porsche 911 in 1/18 scale from GT-Spirit, This time it’s the Carrera Coupe in dark green. As I continue to slim down my collection this one will be shipped on Monday to it’s new home. … Continue reading Another one bites the dust!!
I would dearly love to get my hands on a real one of these. I bought this 1/18 scale one to try and satisfy my graw for the real thing – how ridiculous!! Manufactured by Minichamps with an all opening body, it is beautifully finished and weighs very chunkily in the hand. Continue reading “For Sale – a little Gem – Audi A4 Avant Quattro”
Returning to a previous job of trimming down “doubles” in my collection, this 992 Turbo is now up for sale on eBay. This is the first time (since I bought it) it has been out of the box to take these photo’s. Continue reading “For Sale 1/18 Minichamps 2020 Porsche Turbo S Coupe”
Following on from yesterdays post I did some further chopping on both Porsches. I was saying that the maroon interior (in what is to become the road going replica of the Safari Martini Porsche) really didn’t look great and was going to have to come out. Continue reading “Autoart / Norev Porsche conversion in 1/18”
That was short and sweet – “it’s great to be back” and then Nothing!
More (later) on those flat figures I mentioned in the last post – when was that I hear you say – lets not go there. Anyway, I discovered that my problem with posting up progress here is down to two things;
1. I have a habit of posting directly from my phone to Instagram and 2, I tend not to be organised for posting here, and then, as time moves on, the unposted stuff becomes irrelevant. Hopefully I can correct that with this piece of work. Continue reading “False Start and Autoart to Norev in 1/18”
After a long layoff the brushes are out the paints are mixed and hopefully some paint will be laid down – well sort of! Since the last time I made any contribution here, loads of things have changed, I’m way … Continue reading At Long Last!
The pictures speak for themselves but briefly, a plain white body looks a bit boring! I mean, it’s an excellent model by Minichamps, but for my own liking, I’d like to see some aspects of the car highlighted. Although, as I think about it more, I’m looking at it from the unlikely position of a prospective (real) Porsche buyer – and that’s very unlikely!! Continue reading “Modifying 1/18 Minichamps Porsche GT3 RS”
This is another Porsche GT2 Evo by GT-Spirit in 1/18 scale. A sealed resin body with superb detail, and a sublime paint finish. Having said that, I’m inclined to want to perform some modifications to it – I know, it sounds daft, and kind of arrogant! Continue reading “…………..more of my 1/18 scale collection!”
Something I never seem to have the time to do, sorry, I should rephrase that; Something I never seem to make time for is, reviewing my diecast collection!. Over the last couple of years I have been ferreting away diecasts of my favorite cars with the intention of making a proper display case for them in fact, that’s the real problem! Many of the most beautiful model cars I have are still in their original packaging and carefully stored in a dark press, away from any preying eyes or little sticky fingers! Continue reading “Some of my 1/18 diecasts”
I eventually got finishing the figure of Akira Nakai San. I went for the orange tint in the hair department and from a photo (which I now can’t find too much stuff!!) I gave him a pair of combats. I left his sneakers well worn – from all the crawling around he does underneath the cars (making sure his creations look as good under the skin as they do outside)!
