1:8 & 1:12-SCALE MODELS
This section is devoted to my builds of 1:8 and 1:12-scale, super-detailed models, both my finished models and my works-in-progress.
Works in Progress
I have a number of ’work-in-progress’ models that I am currently working on.
Please click on the article to see the progress of each model.
Details of other future models will be shown here soon.
In early 2020 I presented my first 1:12-scale model at Retromobile 2020. The model was a Ferrari 156 Sharknose which had been built using a Model Factory Hiro kit. In September 2020 I presented my next model, the Bugatti Type 35B, also built from a Model Factory Hiro kit. I have now finished another model built from a kit, an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza, version Monaco Grand Prix, which was due to be presented at Retromobile in February 2021, but will now be shown at the rescheduled show in June 2021. I also plan to make the winner of Le Mans 1933 using the Fernando Pinto transkit. The first scratch-built model will be the Ferrari Dino 206 S Spyder, which is currently a work-in-progress. I am also working on my first scratch-built, 1:8-scale model, which is a Lotus Climax 18.
These 1:8 and 1:12-scale models will be like the 1:43-scale models by LP Creation, so there will be lots of additional details, and where appropriate, the models are opening. I build in a variety of ways, either using the majority of the parts supplied with the kit so as to keep it as simple as possible. Or, where some of the more detailed parts are not supplied with the kit, I make my own scratch-built or photo-etched parts and add or modify to create a more detailed, more accurate model.
I plan to only make one model of any particular version of the car, so that the client will have a unique, one-off piece, complete with a personalised book of photos covering the building of the model. All models are presented on a plexi-glass base (with plexi-glass cover), with an LP Creation logo.
