1:8 & 1:12-SCALE ONE-OFF MODELS
This section is devoted to my builds of one-off 1:8 and 1:12-scale, super-detailed models, either scratch-built, or built from a kit. Please scroll down using the buttons on the right to find out more about my large-scale models and my works-in-progress.
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, followed by another model built from a kit, an Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 Monza, version Monaco Grand Prix.
My latest model, finished in early 2022, is my first scratch-built model, the Ferrari Dino 206 S Spyder.
I am currently working on 2 new, large-scale models; my first in 1:8-scale model is another scratch-built, model, a Lotus Climax 18; and the second is another version of the Alfa Romeo 8C 2300 in 1:12-scale, the winner of Le Mans 1933 based on the Italeri kit of the Monza, and transformed using the Fernando Pinto transkit.
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), awith an LP Creation logo.
