    CoolGerman scale tuning

    Moin
    the same procedure as every year, I look whats new in the GT-scene.
    The first car this year for long dark winter evenings comes out of PA/USA
    The inspiration for this long vehicle was the pictures from octopel meeting.
    Its not really the same trailer,but this is the German answer.
    I'm not sleeping in a tent
    And now, here we go!

    Hi
    This year after a long time out , i make new GT-Models in all scale whats in trade.
    I will show the GT-models from time to time here.
    All this cars are unicats and looks like the original GT by special owners!!
    More pics from the past models are also in my member album!

    Here is the second 1:18 in white/red and one in 1:43 i delivered two weeks ago.










    The next project is a 1:18 in stratos blue with buckskin interieur and BBS wheels
    The 1:18 become also seat belts and rear vent side windows!
    One yello GT/J is also in work with wolfrace (Mug) wheels

    In production at time is a special 1:43 red with tan interieur! I must only make a front-airdam , side skirts and a rear window louver!!
    And yes Gordon this 1:43 have also seat belts!

    German scale tuning

    I've made a lot of plastic models of cars and planes ever since I was a kid, but I could never paint the details like the window rubber, metal trim, or interiors well. These models look amazing good job!

    cat stairs

    Norbert, My daughter's cats would love that ! Great work !
    I would like better a 1.1 engine in 1:25 scale to put in a GT to duplicate mine.
    These kits include a 1.9 engine and a Buick engine, also 73? wheels and custom wheels.
    Do you ( or anyone reading this ) have a spare 1.1 engine and also 4 1969 4 slot wheels
    in 1:25 scale ? Shipping of this engine should be far cheaper than a 1.5 head. ha ha.
    Radiator is smaller with 1.1 engine also. Anyone have parts or ideas ? Thanks, Roy

    I must have been sleeping these past few years. I didn't know that you have been making replicas of other Opelers' Opels.


    I therefore place my order for a replica of this car and trailer:

    Pherrley is the regional Grand Poobah of the Secret Society and Holy Order of Opelists. However, he is also a Grand Master Poobah of the Super Secret Society of Scifi Guys. It's sort of like the Red Hat Society for old ladies, but this one is for crotchety old whackadoodle guys who do crazy shiite to their GT's and paint'em red!


    "Cat Stairs"? I thought louvers were actually stadium seating for pidgeons so that they could group poop on my car?
