    Smer 1/32 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost

    Well I've filled and sprayed the body, this in now going to be a street rod, I sprayed the mud guards and the paint reacted weirdly (went all lumpy with holes in it) tried removing the paint with clean spirit (it's an ecologically friendly brush cleaner you wash out with water) and the mud guards melted, I mean to the point it looks like a blob of melted plastic. I've used this stuff before with no trouble.
  2. Hi all i bought this kit from our LMS, not a great kit. Loads of flash and the fit is awful, is this what Smer kits are normally like.

    Hi all here is the next update, This sub assy is finished (well as much as I'm prepared to do) I like the unpainted brass standing out against the weathered painted parts, i just wish I had the skills to use all the PE (although to be honest I don't think you would notice the bits I've left out)

    Hi all loads still to add to this part, slow going but I do feel I'm getting there I will admit due to my abysmally poor modelling skills I've missed some pe out, as a bit of fun can you spot out the bits I've missed out. I think PE is pretty much beyond my ability now so I can't see me buying any more.

    Hi all It's finished I must say I enjoyed it. Since I mentioned turning the 1/8 traction avant into a steampunk vehicle I think this looks like it would be fairly easy to turn into a steampunk vehicle so I may practice on this one first.

    1/8 Citroen V8 traction maybe?

    Hi all well this is As far as this is going looking like this anyway, it's off the bench while I do a bit of research and catch up on some of my stalled builds. When it returns to the bench I'm going to attempt to do it as a steampunk car.

    I'm really enjoying this kit, being Tamiya everything is a great fit, I'm loving the clever way they designed the rear and front windscreen, no gluing all push fit and I like that they supply masks for said windscreen anyway here's the next lot of progress.

    Hi all here is the next update
  13. Hi all well I've decided to start this one, it's supposed to be a see through model but I didn't like the fact that the roof of the clear body had the Tamiya brand moulded into it which you could clearly see so I decided to spray the body a solid colour.

    1/8 Citroen V8 traction maybe?

    Hi all well I don't like the bulge in the boot with the tyre so I'm doing away with it and am going to go without a spare. Not decided yet but I may add a spolier to the boot.

    Hi all, well I seem to have so little time for modelling these days, i would have done double this in a day a yr ago, it's annoying how little time I get for modelling these days.
