Questions • Decals for thee Matchbox Surtees TS16?

Fri, 08/12/2022 - 23:46
I did something stupid. I bought another Matchbox Surtees and have no idea of what to do with it.
Are there any different decals to be found for it? If my Alps printer had been working I could have made something.

Completed Projects • Brabham BT44 1974

Wed, 08/10/2022 - 07:40
A summer job, the 1974 Brabham BT44, Tamiya 1/12

Basically it is an old kit of the BT44B martini that had yellowed decals, so having bought the new re-edition I decided to make it with a set of S27 decals of the 1974 version, when Carlos Reutemann (R.I.P) obtained his first victory..

Hope you like it !

Open Seating • Hobby Search Question

Sun, 08/07/2022 - 23:59
I’m looking for an alternative to Hobby Link Japan and I’m wondering if anyone in the USA has used Hobby Search. I haven’t created an account yet and I would appreciate any feedback before doing so. One thing that puzzles me is stock. I can’t tell if they have an item in stock. How is their shipping compared to HLJ, etc?

Open Seating • Anyone interested in building an authentic Lego F-1 Car that works?

Mon, 08/01/2022 - 14:52
Just something a little bit different other than just doing detailed modelling stuffs. Anyone here who would like to do something a wee bit different, with Lego? At the very least, no glue, no paint, no mess, just follow a bunch of instructions and you got a 1:5 OR 1:8 huge F-1 Car that the steering works, engine that piston moves and pretty real with decals (no waterslide for potential cracking, solvents, cotton swabs, hair dryers, order for duplicates just in case and crying when they dissolve right in front your eyes .....)

I watched a video by a Dutch Lego Expert for a Mclaren M23 Speed Build, it was the best of both worlds. The TECHNIC portion which the engine pistons work and steerable front, plus the realism of the real model and a huge scale as well. For those who does not have a lot of space or cannot afford that much for such huge kits. (Yes, Lego is ridiculous when a Titanic kit sells for $899.99 CAD at your local Lego Store.) A duplicated smaller 1:27 Scale of the collection is also available. This YouTube video of the 1:8 scale was right there:


Then he described that he ordered the instructions from His name is Luca Rusconi, an Italian engineer by trade (Is that even a surprise hahaha? ) Then I looked into his website and was blown away with the variety of the F-1 kits he created using Lego. From the classic Lotus 43, Matra MS-80, Brabham BT52, Toleman TG184, Ferrari 126C2, Mclaren MP4-4 and so on. I believed that if you are interested, you need to buy his instructions and decals, then go to Brink (now owned by Lego) for the Lego and Technic pieces to built it yourself.

Here is his website. Pretty amazing and looks really good on the shelf.

Also an amazing interview from an Italian Lego Enthusiast Group on Mr. Rusconi himself. Some of his ideas and using latest computer modelling to design his Formula-1 Lego kits are just unreal. ... Jz_92hTtBw

Please let me know what you think. Thanks for reading.
