Oh My Goodness.

These are quite an amazing piece of works. The attention to the details is simply mindblowing. Hats off to your patience.I'm sure you will find anything and everything here at T-BHP in whatever you're searching for.

Such a pleasure to see your work and others (as pointed by Rehaan in the beginning)

Gregor my friend - "Sie sind ein Super- Künstler, Wunderbar !!"

Wow Gregor!! That is really an amazing job.

Can you also please share the tools you use? Also what kind of paints do you use? The paint quality looks top notch. I was thinking of developing a similar hobby for myself.
My son would love it.

Thanks.

Default Modelcars from Gregor Mager

Hallo there

Now I make a new Thread of my model cars because these car's are never driven in India.

My first model car in scale 1: 10 is a Imperial Demonstrator, a Kit car from UK.
The owner is my brother in law and he has this car since 25 years.
The car was imported from UK to Germany. Only 3 cars exist.
The original has a Ford Cortina Motor with 78 Hp. ca. 140 km/h.

I built this car in Wood. I made one in scale 1:10 and two in 1:87

Hello again

This model car is a LOTUS SUPER SEVEN built in brass.
I made this car for Radio Control and it was very fast... too fast.. and it damaged the wall. Then I repaired the Lotus and painted it NEW.
The Name of the colour is "Tornado Red" from Volkswagen.

Herr Mager, wunderbar

The attention to detail on the models is mind blowing.

Now all we need is a DSLR toting professional to do justice to the brilliant cars!

Now I show you my third modelcar in scale 1:10.

I built the ASTON MARTIN DB 5 Convertible in Wood.
The bumpers and all other things are in Wood. You can open all.
The dashboard was very difficult to make. The steering works.
I painted the car with air brush in original British Racing green.
The Borrani Wheels I made in brass. I solder iron on a Form and put them in a rim (the rim was a top of a tin), then I put a gum from a Lorry Wheel in scale 1:8 of the Aston.

I needed about 450 hours to make the wonderful car.


Now Show and enjoy.
Best Gregor.

Amazing talent Gregor. How do you model these cars ?I mean how do you get the dimensions on the paper and on to the cutting boards?

After many hundreds of hours of blood and sweat....the Bhopal Bentley 6.5 L by Thrupp & Maberly in 1/24 scale.

I have lost enough precious O -ve blood, poking and cutting myself, it isn't funny anymore.

Many balsa trees, miles of kitchen aluminium foil, tens of decapitated plastic beads and many square yards of plastic sheet all gave their lives in this creation.

It is almost all scratch built, save for the headlamps, winglamps, cowl lamps, steering wheel and tires. The Grebels are reshaped plastic beads.

Very well crafted. I always wanted to learn how to make scale model cars-I've made a RC plane before but the detailing needed on a static car is in another league.
Kudos to your passion and attention to detail. More pictures awaited

Does it also have a working steering and suspension setup?
