Hi Old_Skul_SR,

Haven't seen you for a while at Festival Mall.... no wonder... your busy with your scale modelling... kaya pala one time na naglaro ka nakita ko may bitbit ka na kahon of a scale model. smile.gif

Ganda ng mga works mo Bro... mga magkano ba ang isang scale model box Bro. Gusto ko sana mag-try, dati TAMIYA Mini4WD Collection ko, but now since naglalaro me Wangan, gusto ko sana magkaron ng scale model sa loob ng lancer ko pampagana lang sa loob.

Thanks Bro... Astig ka... kagaya ng Subaru Alcyone mo... tama ba ako ;-)


Woops! My countryman forgot that this is an int'l section of the thread :)

Here's the translation.

Hi Old_Skul_SR,

Haven't seen you for a while at festival mall... no wonder...your busy with your scale modeling... so that's why I saw you one time when you were playing, you were carrying a box load of scale models. smile.gif

You're works are great bro...how much is a scale model? I want to try scale modeling. I collected TAMIYA mini4WD Collection before, but now, since I'm playing Wangan, I want to have a scale model car inside my Lancer to excite me on.

Thnaks bro...you're cool... like your Subaru Alcyone...am I correct? ;-)

Yo bro! he's one cool dude. You're lucky you've met him already. i only know him from the scale plastic modeling boards and here at wangan.

ill be dropping by later the arcades and the model shop. im in need of some tubing for my project. :D :D

oh, here's a peek at the evo. :D

Pretty Cool Old_School...

Wow I'm amazed... I want to have a Skyline and Evo model car displayed on my dashboard. Yeah I know the store, I bought my Tamiya Mini4WD there also but sometimes I travel to Lil's Hobby at Makati... I guess I will have a new venture.

I'm amaze how you fabricate the body... what materials do you use? I need some fabrication on my real car also... like damaged vents and son on and so forth.

Your work just amazes me Bro... am not artistic though. So I guess I will just buy a model and assembled it.

Paste your finished work here Bro. Have seen you at Festi talking to Onins.

Hi bro!

Old_Skul uses prepaid cards to fabricate/make custom body iits. impressive yes? :)

I've seen some of his works posted on another board and it's really awesome! :o

He even does the interiors of the cars with roll cages and seat belts :)

Astounding Works Old_Skul...

I want to approach you but you know... I'm a loner while playing at Festi... silent-type person Bro. :shifty:

BTW... what's a good brand of primer/paint (Pylox etc.) Is it customary to sand the plastic first then put in primer before actually painting the model car? I'm a newbie, that's why I don't know how to use those professional painting kits. :rolleyes:

What do you use to attach the intelligent prepaid card kits? Mighty Bond or just and ordinary glue?

Thanks for the info in advance Bro. God Bless. Your ingenuity and works are amazing.

@kapeman, approach me, im a nice person. tomorrow ill be there again. and ill be able to teach you more. BTW, whats your card name?

but for your questions, yes, it is ideal to sand the body first so that the paint will adhere firmly, and sanding between paints. ii use krylon or RJ paint grey primer.

the cards and body kit? i just use mighty bond then smoothen with putty and sanding. :D

Hi Old_Skul_Sr,

Wow... your works really amazes me. I like that effect on the drift car.... "battle tested" look huh. That's nice.

Putty? What brand of putty should I use for fabricating parts myself? Does it cost much? :ermm:

actually i use two part epoxy, some call cards and patience for the rought body shape. then sand it down and then use tamiya putty to finish it off. it only costs around 130Php

u can see the putty in the evo 5 pics. :D(its all the pinkish stuff)

we gotta talk if you want to learn more. :D :D

Just within this topic area; you can click on this link.

http://wmexpressway.net/index.php?showtopic=26845&st=25

Just like you, I purchased a Datsun 240Z produced by Jada Toys, luckily i found one in blue! hope you can find one for yourself too!

old_skool_SR was looking forward to the Corolla TE27... how is it? that car simply resemble "you". Hope you can share photos of that car in its final fit and finish. if ever you have a new topic about it, can you give me a link for it?

long time no see in this forums... :-)
