Some christmas projects

Post  brian on Wed Jan 01, 2014 5:52 pm

I was asked to make 2 models for people over christmas. The first one I had plenty time to build but as thats not being given to the person until this weekend, i wont post photos of that build yet.

With the second build however time was very tight. I bought the model kit online the day I was contacted but after taking 2 and a half weeks to arrive from Japan, it left me with 10 days to get the work done. As it was another road car (yes another one  Very Happy) it took a lot of modifying to make the cage fit, as well sorting out how to mount it to the base since 1/24s dont have any areas to mount it to a base plate. The white decals for the windows didnt arrive in time to go on the model. They arrived about 2 hours after the courier took the model away.

Very happy with this one i have to say. Very simple livery but it works well. It a model of Peter Wilsons honda civic from the Monaghan Rally 2010

Thanks guys. Kind of wish I had made a second for myself.

Yes its a 1/24 plastic kit made by Hasegawa. I had to make a base as kits dont have any way to mount them. Its bolted onto a teak base with the nuts encased in a plasticard block under the seats. This way it can be removed and reattached easily if needed.

Brian, I agree with the comments from my esteemed bretheren above.  scratch  Great build, well done.

I've used the same method for driver's names on windows myself, so it's good to see a professional do the same.  sunny

Not sure about professional now.

I had to use this method as a last resort. As this was such a last minute model, i had all the artwork ready to go when the kit arrived, but still had to scale them and get the white decals done by someone in England that didnt arrive back in time. I would have prefered to wait and put them on but had i left if another day, it wouldnt have arrived in time for christmas.

The other model i had to build before christmas was a model of Shane Kenneally Honda Civic. It was presented to him as a gift at the Plasicbags.ie awards night saterday night. This is a Fujimi kit and was surprised how good the kit is. Everything fits really well and has loads of extra bits to make various versions of the civic. Its a very difficult colour to photograph properly as in daylight it looks washed out. Didnt have a load of time to set up lighting etc so daylight will have to do. I only noticed that id forgotten the wipers after seeing the pictures so it pays to take pictures

Sounds painful and skillful at the same time, balancing on a clock without falling off. Unless it's a big or spongey clock, of course!  Very Happy 

Careful you don't flatten it, Brian!!
