Default Re: The Scale Model Thread

Recently when I trooped into Automania to get the Lancia 037 Presentation edition (limited to just 1200 pieces worldwide), I casually glanced among the other models on display. Rakhesh of Automania has some of the best truck models that I have ever seen and though I predominantly collect 1:18 scale models, the truck models looked very tempting.

Whether I cave in to my desires or not will be decided more by my bank balance and not by me. But photographing these models dosen't cost a penny. Here I have attached photographs of some of the truck models at Automania.

These are absolutely fantastic.....

Oh, I painted her maroon an hour ago (i will apply matt effect clear, to have that dull look). I was thinking on your lines with Mahogany (a shade of brown like in the picture) and black, but could not really decide on.

Any ways first coat of paint is over, sanding and onother coat will follow later today. I will clear coat once I apply decals. Final assembly and detailing will follow after that.

Guys,

Final painting is done, tough the paint is still wet I managed to take some pics. I will leave over for 24 hrs to harden.

I am loving it. the shade came out real good. Now just imagine the matt effect on this color .

@Amar: yes, the truck models are absolute drool-maal.. The classic trucks in particular, make me weak kneed !!
@Manish: Turning out real good man - the shade's looking fab !

While we're talking about trucks, here's an elusive beauty I got to lay my hands upon - From Russia with love, nonetheless !! - The "URAL" 4320 Military Truck. 1:43, made in Russia.

Now you are making us weak, awesome awesome. I am over booked and over budgeted but still would like this particular one.

You know they make this one in India too. More can be found here

http://www.uralindia.co.in/dumper.pdf

Approx 1.5 years back in one of the issue of Commercial Vehicle, they featured a stroy on URAL India, which has kolkatta Government as a stake holder.

By the way the other day I spotted an URAL bus (low floor like Volvo 8400), chatted with the sales engineer and took some pictures too.

And here is the picture of real deal

Dear Manish,

Your truck model building is coming out very well and the dark brown shade is apt for the model.
Though late (tied up in house hold chores), I had replied to your Fiat related question on this thread itself (about spare parts availability) as I cannot send you a PM now.

Many years back (almost 15 - 17 years back, when still in college I had designed some bus body styles for ACGL (Automobile Corporation of Goa Limited) and had also executed fairly accurate scale models (1:21) of my designs. These models were built using plastic, metal, thermocol, card board, etc. A photograph of one such model was also published in Auto India, way back in 1994. As digital photography was not known in those days, all images were taken using film camera. If I find some, I will scan and post the images. I used to also build models using resin.

Amar,
Thanks for the kind words, just wanted to know should I clear coat it glossy or matt effect.

For fiat, I got your message but missed replying. Your friend is lucky. Please if possible get me the aluminum tail lights for my car. As I am not lucky enough to visit the gold mine for all of us Fiat lovers.

Nice to know that you were into Busses, I got 3D printing done for my sisters Bus Model for KSRTC. But got no pictures :(.

Manish, I will convey your message to my friend when I next meet him. When I last heard from Sandeep, painting was completed and is a two tone combination. I have received the images and will post them on the same thread where I had earlier posted the images.

Matt effect will look better for your model as it will give the model a "period" look. For rest of the body, how about "cream" of "off-white"? Even "bottle green" will go well with the brown. Remember those old Bedford and Tata Mercedes Benz trucks!

Hi manish, now that is a good job done. wow really appretiate your hard work. I noticed for your load carrier bed, you have some sort of a sticker and just a small idea came to my mind. you can use icecream sticks with a bit of transparent ink to get the real wood finish on it what say??

As of now the modes include.

1. Engine wiring.

2. Engine fuel and brake lines.

3. Leather seats.

4. carpeted interior.

5. Rubber hose with clips for heater air intake.

6. Radiator upper hose with clips.

7. working front headlamps with swich in the load bay.

8. brake lights on push of the button near brake pedal.

All this itself lended a trouble due to size constrains for locally available material, some how mamaged.


P.S.: I have one 37 ford 1:24 which I have given rotting in field effect, have tarnished the body, cut open the doors. Hinges and final assembly is left. I am yet to prepare my rust powder tough. whic will take close to a month or so.

Also have 1:12 Rover mini 1.3i, I plan to have a lot of realism in the car.

It inspires me further when friends and family praise.

I use Bosny paint which are acrylic and come in aerosole spray. (My birthday gift is going to be an air brush ).

I have done 1 coat of grey primer, 2 coat of color, will laquer it once the decals are applied and trims painted or aluminium tape applied. In between sanding with a 600 / 1000 grit water emry. 600 was required beacuse of some imperfection other wise 1000 is good enough.

I have both glossy and matt effect. I plan to have matt effect laquer. I kept the model whole night under table lamp for baking and hardening of paint.
