    Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312T F1 car from the biopic Rush, Hasegawa 1/20 kit

    I stripped the chrome off the wing parts and sprayed Alclad polished aluminum in its place. The effect is far more realistic. The decals are from the kit and are really nicely printed, with very little carrier around the print. And its at this stage I really forgot about taking pictures, ran...

    Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312T F1 car from the biopic Rush, Hasegawa 1/20 kit

    Id recommend a Tamiya 1/20 scale kit for a first time build, they are a bit simpler in construction and still offer great detail. The newer releases are a bit pricey but you should be able to find some of the older kits at a decent price.

    Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312T F1 car from the biopic Rush, Hasegawa 1/20 kit

    AS with most car kits, the build starts with the engine... In this case, engine, gearbox and rear suspension. The engine in an F1 car is a stressed member of the chassis, so a few extra braces too. I added some ignition wire to liven things up a little.

    Niki Lauda's Ferrari 312T F1 car from the biopic Rush, Hasegawa 1/20 kit

Comes with markings for both team cars, Niki Lauda #12 winning entry, and Clay Regazzoni's #11. The car is featured prominently in Ron...

    Trumpeter 1/35 Geschützwagen Tiger für 17cm Kanone (or Big Honkin Gun)

    They are similar to the E100 tracks, wether they use the late KT or the E100 tracks is beyond me. Im leaning on the late King Tiger tracks, since the GW Tiger shares much of its parts with the KT. From what I can tell though, the Hobby Boss tracks are meant to be used with the Tamiya or Dragon...

    Trumpeter 1/35 Geschützwagen Tiger für 17cm Kanone (or Big Honkin Gun)

    I know he's used the Fruile tracks for his build, but Im not sure if there is a specific set for the GW Tiger. They are a bit out of my price range anyways. Hobby Boss makes a set in styrene thats priced right @ $10 a set and made for the Dragon or Tamiya King Tiger, i think thier sprockets are...
