Thumbs up Re: DIY: Handmade Scale Models, using Thermocol

Amazing work!
During my childhood I use to 'build' vehicles using playing cards on a toy truck/car/bus chassis

How about some 'original' designs?

Fantastic. This hobby can develop to a great business proposition. To make a beginning
you can consider organizing an exhibition at Kochi.

Actually only the Punto has been colored - using permanent marker. Others have been left as they are.
There exists some risk in coloring. Attaining a good surface finish is quite difficult.

Thanks for your suggestion.
I will consider the exhibition once I have a handful of models

Recognition always feels good; even more so,when it comes from where it should.

Thank you
I heard a Jetta facelift had landed in India for homologation.I'll certainly consider it once VW rolls out the facelift.
But before that, there is another Volkswagen coming up: The 2011 Passat. I had scaled down the car in 2012; later I tried to do some modifications which ended up in ruins. I'm not giving up(there is a particular interest because we do own a Passat)- It 'll be revived soon.

Sagar, the Ecosport looks fabulous. However, i still feel you can do better with the alloys. If you can get that part sorted, it would appear OEM.

@Sagz - Excellent results - Kudos to your effort. Do you have any video of putting this together? I do have a plan to replicate a big box Store (US type Brick & Mortar) this information from would certainly help.

Thanks for your time and keep doing this.
