My last Caterham....

Kit / Model  

Caterham Super Seven BDR



Item Code  





Hi friends, this is my last model a very modified
I think this is my best of the last years, I mixed a lot of ideas, wide rear tires, cycle fenders, tonneau cover for the co-driver seat, aero screen instead the conventional windshield, which gives a vintage looking.
Also the motor has lot of custom handmade modifications.
All the modifications were scratchbuilt, using plastic, cooper, steel, resin copies and parts of my spare box, no afterparts were used.

Enjoy and thanks for reading!

Qué buena explicación de cómo barnizar! leí tu nota Gracias marioc!!!

Si barnicé como dije con esmalte clear X22 de Tamiya. En 2000 escribí una pequeña nota acerca de como realizo está técnica, que utiliza materiales de modelismo comunes.

aaahhh, mirà vos, te quedò impecable y muy novedosa la pintura. No utilizaste barniz?. Espero poder ver el artìculo de tu modelo!!! Felicitaciones nuevamente.

Hola Sergio, la pintura es Model Master OLD ENGINE BLUE, y encima tiene esmalte clear de Tamiya, el cula fue aplicado 15 minutos después de aplicar la pintura. Si tiene lavados, con óloes...etc, pero por la escala, 1/12, no son notorios. En Abril un artículo completo.

Hola marioc!!!! impresionante te quedò, sobretodo la pintura, cuàl usas, las de autos de verdad?. A mi gusto, le hubiera hecho unas aguaditas en el blok motor y en los encuentros de las mangueras con èste ùltimo. Pero no me lleves el apunte, està impecable. Te felicito, sos todo un artista!!!
