Work in Progress

1/32-1/35 Mille Miglia 1931

Posted by Challenger77 on 28 Feb 2023, 20:49

Hello M :-D ates a small Update on the SSKL. First i added a bit Plasticcard over the nice Detail on the Gastank, Matchbox made this good, but on the Originalcar there was a Sheetmetal installed. Recreate with Plasticcard the Sheetmetal under the 3 Exhaustpipes in the Bonnet. They must me flush with the Bonnet. The Exhaust was made out of a bit brasstube, slightly bend and on the End pressed Flat.Also added the body piping with thin Aluminiumwire. I rebuild the Mudguardmountings with Brassrod and T Profile. not 100% but way better than Matchbox. Also with Brasstube , 0.9 mm and 1.4 mm created the Headlight Mounting. The lights self are from ELF, not entirly correct but i want to install lights, you know.... :P This was a Pain in the Axx....fiddling Work, last thing Today was the Registrationlighting also Brasstube.
The Lights are once again SMD LED , around 0.5 mm "big".......

Just another fiddling Pimp Up...the Softtop and Linkage are only rudimentary plasticblobs. So i cut it down, add on each Side 3 small Brasstubes, 0.7 mm flat pressed on one end, and a Small Part U-Profile, with a Pinhead i simulate the Hinge. The remind of the Softtop covered with some Fabrictape to add a bit of Surfacedetai. And then i added 2 Strips of crap Etchframe and etched Buckles.

Hello one more Time :-D First testing the Lights.....Then i added the last Details. The Quickrelease Gascap, pimped the Kitpart with small Copper and Brass Wire/Tube,scratched the Licenseplate and Nationalityplate, Mudguard "Extensions" and the Stoneguard before the Radiator. Not entirly 100% correct, but i think it looks not bad.

You make a great build. You work out the details beautifully. In this way she develops a realistic composition of Dios.
Just fantastic. I admire your eagerness to work. the amount of time you put into this dio is enormous. I wish you a lot of fun building. :yeah: :yeah: :yeah:

The last Details done, new Toolbox, a "Jerry"can from Miniart, both with Tamiyatape "Belt" and etched Buckles. New Quickreleases for the Fuelfiller and the Sparetires with Copper, Brass and the cutdown Kitparts, and of Course the Figures. These are a Mix of immense Miniatures Feets & Heads, Bodies from Penelope & MRRC,and Arms from the Crapbox. To blend the Codriver in, i use putty from Greenstuff. The belt, Buckle and small handles on the Enginecover i will mounted after Painting.

Funny Fact, not a Single Manafacturer , no Matter if its a Diecast or a Kit, got this well documented Car right. Even the 19.000 € Amalgammodel is Wrong and incomplete, all made too much holes in the frame, wrong or simply not there Details. So i try my best to get as close i can. Some Parts are a Compromise, such as the Tires, with a §D Printer this would be simple, but i don't have one :shock:

Greetings :-D :wave: :-D :wave:

:-D Hello Mates
First Paintcoat is drying, so i added some more tiny Details.

Image

First the Penelope Pitlane Steeringwheel gets a bigger Hub and the 2 levers for ignition and mixture adjustment .

Image

Image

Also added the 3pointed Star on the Pewter Knockoffs

Image

Next was the Rear View Mirror, that is only good visible on the Studio Shots same Car after the Nürburgring Race. The MM Pics are retoched to death or simply bad Quality. Only on one frontshot you can see clearly there was a Mirror.
Here on the mille Miglia

Image

Same car and Driver oon the Nürburgring

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

And then 2 Carjacks, if I am not wrong, on the Sideboard. On the Photos not really identifiable, i found on ebay a Jack from that era. I think its not far away from the real thing. First Pic show the Real ones vs the Amalgam Model. The later looks a bit odd.....

Image

This is the Ebay One

Image

And my Tryout

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Jerrycan and the Hood got etched Buckles and some paint

Image

Image

I hope i got it :-D

Hello Mates :wink:
here's a little update. Its a very timeconsumpting kit, much more Work as the Alfas and the Bug. And i was on an Oldtimerrally with my Club, i haven't a oldie but a very rare mart Roadster Coupe :P ....So here is at first the "pimped" Exhaust. Added to the Kitpart a Brasstube, sqeeze it Flat on the End to recreate the Fishtailexhaust like the Original. Added 3 Suspensions from Meatbox-Alufoil, painted with different Alclad metals. The Chromed anifolds are painted with Greenstuff Chrome for Brushes, a fantastic Paint !

Image

Image

Image

Image

Next i painted the tank cap also with Greentstuff.

Image

Image

The Radiator get a new Stoneguard out of Eduard Etched Mesh, Evergreen strip, a etched selfadheshive Star and a Roccopart for the Lockbase whre the KitCap fits in.

Image

Image

i sand down the Leather Strap on the Hood and recrate it with 3M Tape ( the same Stuff as Tamiyas, but much cheaper! ) added 4 Etchparts.
Image

Image

Then it was Time to Paint and assemble....still a lot to Work.....

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Some Setailwork and the Hood, the come the fun artt, the Weatherring.... :P :P :P
