Nissan R390 GT1 racing car, Tamiya 1/24

Model, text and images by Stewart Reid

A very fulfilling and frustrating build.

Achieved the gloss finish in the end using tamiya x1 with mr color levelling thinner and pressure set to 12 - 15psi.

Bought some little cables from ebay to denote cable work.


There are tons and tons of video-tutorials about scale models, dispersed on the Net. But only a few are truly worth to watch. We select the best and only the best video-tutorials: building, detailing, painting, weathering, dioramas and more.

We just finished to tag all the videos in our archives, and the first results is here: a selection of tutorials about the weathering in scale models: all what you need to know to give to your models the perfect dirty or dusty or rusty look!
