Post your finished builds here guys!

The 1:12 Brabham BT44b is finished. Lots of detail, so lot's of photos..... sorry.

Really nice kit from Tamiya which went together with just a couple of minor problems. Being large scale I added a lot of extra detail. You can check it out in the WIP here

I decided to change the Tamiy supplied and way out of scale HT leads for something in scale. I also took the opportunity to include the plug boots.

The model represents the car of Carlos Reutemann at the German GP of 1975.

During the cars three year life it won only five races with Reutemann taking four of those wins. However, the team did take second place in the constructors championship of 1975, despite only winning two races.

Thanks Ash.

Sure you can have it at a price. Now let's see, at basic national wages and 100+ hours, it's going to cost you £650+.

Deal?

The Duesenberg is finally finished.  It's been awhile since I did a big scale model and enjoyed getting back to it.  

The Fishtail Weymann Speedster was built for George Whittell Jr. of California.  Born into a wealthy family, he luckily pulled all his investments out of the stock market weeks before the crash of 1929.  He used this car almost exclusively for parades (as an honorary California Fire Marshall).  He had other Duesenbergs for daily use.  When the car was bought by the Harrah Collection in the 1960's it only had 1342 miles on it.

Occasionally the left side of the hood pops up because of a tight fit. It held tight for the pictures with the top on it, though.

A really fun build.
