Thought I'd have a dabble in 1:43 scale. So picked up these two Porsche 935's. They arrived today and cannot believe the amount of detail on these cars considering they're only 100mm Long x 45mm wide.

1. Truescale 935 K3 Coke Le Mans 1981






2. Spark 935 K3 Sachs Le Mans 1980






I'm really impressed with these models, so much so I've ordered another couple 935's.

I like those. 1/43 are appealing due to the cost factor and the ease of storage. Display cabinets are more viable, too.

Crumbs, it's intimidating to post in here with so much cool stuff on display! Is this the right place to post completed kits? I offered to build a kit for my mate and he requested a ’68 Charger in red with a white top, 426 hemi and a few war wounds. Well, I didn’t need telling twice (though as usual it took me ages to actually get round to building it). This is Revell’s 1/25 kit from 2008, a nice kit by Revell standards. I added a little wiring, a few fag packets and some dirt.

Certainly is, indeed early in the thread there were plenty of models people had built from kits but recently it has all been pre-built model cars. I love to see people's modelling skills smile

Nice work and it's in the right place, I've posted some of my completed kits in here somewhere. The engine detail on yours is spot on thumbup

Any plans for another build?

Thanks gents smile

Next build is another give-away, this time a Sea King for my brother, who wants to get models of the various helicopters he has ridden in. I do like people who want models for Xmas, nice 'n simple! Last year I did this Chinook for him, it's the Airfix kit which I understand is not quite up to the mark compared to the more recent Chinook kits from elsewhere. Looks like it could have done with another blow over with matt lacquer to be honest, but he was happy with it.

Looks good, incidentally I know a chap who flies or flew Chinooks and owned a TVR Tuscan, not him is it?

'Fraid not, he drives a ragged Mercedes A140! Though he did have an E36 M3 for a while.

few pictures from today's ipms show

http://www.flickr.com/photos/42427406@N05/sets/721...

this is my fav model from the show



Fav moment of the show was an guy came up to me telling me how much he liked my Catalina and that he said it was the most beautifulest plane he had ever seen.

I asked him why as if i was considering my beautifulest's planes i wouldn't even consider it. He then went on to tell me how he was a hurricane pilot that then went onto spitfire's and one time he was shot down and was in the sea for 4 hours almost losing all hope until coming over the horizon came a catalina and ever since then he's maintained it's the most beautifulest he had ever seen. It's one of those stories i doubt you would even read about.

Has been on the forums a few times. I built one, because of its size its quite an easy build, but I have been sucked into paper craft models over the last year or so, really must get some pics up of what I've done.

That's v nice indeed. Who's it made by and what scale? Had two of the Burago incarnation that I destroyed as a nipper and always fancied another, as the real thing is stil somewhat out of reach!

1/5th Scale Porsches (996 GT3 RS & 993 GT2)

Not the best of shots as all taken from phone and in a hurry.
