lotus 79 rebaque -08

and the lotus 79 "rebaque" is finished too!

I would like to thank Edgar MirĂ³ for his invaluable help (I'm still wanting to see your absolutely fantastic F-2007 finished...) and everyone who encouraged me during the building of this nice car!

thanks to all!

and next will be the fujimi's sauber C30! (I wanted to start the mp4/27 or the RB6 but I'm still thinking wich kind of paints I will use, so the sauber won the pole!)

best regards to all!

lotus 79 martini -08

Finally the lotus 79 "martini" it's finished!
It has been a long time since I started this car and had some problems using the 2K clear coat for first time but I'm quite happy with the result achieved!


lotus 79 martini -07

I also glued the body parts on the martini's lotus! only need to add the side plates on the front wing, the rear wing and the wheels. Then the car will be finished! Hope to do it this week!!!

lotus 79 rebaque -07

after all painting problems and the building of the porsche 911, finally I could work on the lotus again. I hope I will finish it this week!

new kits!

christmas is always a good time to have nice presents!!!!!
this year I received three new kits, the fujimi's sauber C30 and mclaren mp4/27 and tamiya's red bull RB6!
I'm really happy with them and hope to start the work on the sauber soon! 

porsche 911 turbo '88

This is one of the reasons I couldn't finish the two lotus before.....
A very good friend celebrated his 40th birthday and I built a porsche 911 turbo as a present for him.
Is the first time I built a non-formula one model and it was quite difficult to achieve a good result. The kit is very basic (it has no engine detail) but, as always in tamiya kits, the fitting is perfect. I also used a homemade decals (the same he has in the original car) and they worked well.
let's go to finish the two lotus!
