Red Bull 7 Almost Complete
My Red Bull 7 kit is almost complete. I have applied all of the stickers to the main body and just have a few details such as the wing mirrors left to add.
Red Bull 7 Progress Racing Body
After cutting the body out with my lexan scissors I had some bits to tidy up that were tricky to get to with scissors.
Chevy Impala Police Car Complete
I finally finished a model for the first time in a while. There is still some tidying up I could do but considering my back log of half built kits its done for now.
I decided to build a police car after playing Need for Speed Rivals and its not something I would usually build. In fact this is probably the first road car I have ever finished.
I am pleased with the results and hopefully this will inspire me to tackle some of the more challenging kits on the pile.
I purchased two police officers from eBay to fit into the kit. These required cutting down and even then I only just managed to squeeze them in.
They add a lot to the model and Continue reading Chevy Impala Police Car Complete
Chevy Impala Police Car Part 3
I have started applying to the car body.
This is the part I have been looking forward too most as it turns a plain body shell into something much more detailed.
Chevy Impala Police Car Part 2
This has been an interesting model to paint, requiring lots of careful hand painting around the window frames and other areas. I still have a bit of tidying to do but its getting there.
One thing I found useful with this kit is a lot of it snaps into place meaning you can test fit parts easier before making them permanently attached. I am not sure if this it common Continue reading Chevy Impala Police Car Part 2
Red Bull 7 Preparing the Bodyshell

The long awaited racing body arrived last week and was found in my local green Continue reading Red Bull 7 Preparing the Bodyshell
Revell 1:25 scale Chevy Impala Police Car Part 1
This is something a little different I have been working on over the holiday.
I got the desire to build a police car from playing Needs for Speed rivals on my PC.
I managed to find a kit in the distinctive black and white livery used on American police cars in the game.

F1 Lotus Front Wing and Nose
Tamiya Lotus F1 type 102B RC Kit Part 1
This was a Christmas present I have been working on over the past few weeks.
There are a few reasons I like this kit.
The first is the car has the classic F1 shape that has been lost over the years as aerodynamics technology has moved forward.
The other main reason is the style. I like racing green and this kit reminds me of the recent all green Caterham F1 cars.
Lastly the year this car ran Team Lotus were sponsored by Tamiya which I thought was quite cool since it is a Tamiya kit.
