1/24 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VI Rally (NZ)

I built this model almost one and a half year ago. That time this is my first attempt at rally cars. This is a Tamiya 1/24 Evo VI Rally (New Zealand Rally) driven by Tommi Makinen. Well, being my first rally car, I decided to keep things simple. The body color , interior are almost accurate. But the chasssis are paint flat black as the chassis is too colorful and I am lack of colors. Well, decided to weather it a bit. What you guys think?

I have another version of it built up as the Proton PERT MK1 Rally and another one still unfixed. Maybe I will do the Freddy version or either convert it to another Proton MK2 Hokkaido Rally as I have leftover decals from the Proton PERT decals( produced by Studio 27)

TOMY Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII RC...

Well, as the great fan of the Mitsubishi Evo, I should not miss this car in my collection. However, I can't figure out the reason while I didn't buy it last time and I can't find it anywhere after that. Luckily, I made a trade with Tom, a Vietnam collector and got this! Thanks Tom !!

Well, nothing much to complain as this is meant to be a remote control car toy. The body shape is accurate and stickers for lamps, mesh , and side mirrors are given. The scale is between 1/24 to 1/30. Soon, I will post another TOMY RC car that is the AE86 once i finish assembling it.

Papercraft: Proton PERT (BFA 876) Rally Car

BFA 876 found me when I was looking for some Proton Wira rally photos. Since then, I have been following his blog whenever I have the time. Well, seems I have some free time, so I decided I might do a simple papercraft dedicate to him.

Here is the summary of himself
'''I was born a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo III RS and built by Ralliart Japan as a Group N4 rally car in 1996. PERT purchased me in 1997 and renamed me PERT Proton Wira 4wd Turbo. I've had an illustrious rally career from 1997-2003 in MRC and APRC. In 2008, I was bought over by JMT and here I am.... Rallying Again !!! ''''

This is how he looks like..

Papercraft Download: Proton Wira Rally

Well, I noticed that there are lots of PERT (Petronas EON Racing Team) fans on the Internet. Well, here I would like to share a simple papercraft that I designed based on a template I took from the Internet.

It's the Proton Wira Rally and basically it's the legendary Evolution II. Feel free to distribute it. Remember, sharing is caring. Oh ya, please show the completed photos once you guys finish building it.

I will continue to post some of my papercrafts on my webpage for visitors to download. What you guys think about it ?

How to build it? It's easy. A pen knife, pair of scissors, color printer, ruler, glue and most important a thick piece of paper. Enjoy !

Motormax 1/18 Acura NSX


Acura NSX is the American branding for the original Honda NSX that debuted in Japan in the early 90's. It has a rear engine and rear wheel drive system and was powered by an all-aluminumV6 gasoline engine featuring Honda's unique "variable valve timing and lift electronic control" VTEC system. (Sourced from Wikipedia)

Back to this model, I always loved Motormax 1/18 diecasts. They provide good detail cars model at a low price. This Acura NSX model features opeable engine hood, front bonnet, and doors. Everything is detail from the engine block and there's a decent interior for it.

The paint job is blue in color and it's well done to me. Well, at least it's better than Maisto's paintjob quality. Lastly, it's a worth model to have in my collection as I am a Japanese car freak.

Proton Wira Rally Project (1/24 Scale) Progress

Well, there has been progress regarding my project that is replicating the Proton PERT in 1/24 scale. The base kit used will be the Hasegawa Evolution III kit. Basically,it will have a basic rally interior and all the rally livery. Wondering whose car I will replicate? Of course the legendary Karamjit Singh and his co driver Allen Oh's car that participate in the Network Q rally years ago.

So this is the car that I will be replicating. Base on the photos, I manage to use my Photoshop skills and rebuild some sponsors and stickers that are hard to find online and reference photos.

Now I manage to get all the livery correctly, I lay them out on my papercraft version of the Proton Wira rally so that it will be easier for my friend (Hanzel Chocas from Philipines) to resize and redraw them. It's like a dream come true to replicate one of my favourite rally cars all time.

Thanks Hanzel for helping me to replicate the decals of this Proton Wira 4wD turbo rally car.
If I manage to finish this project, the upcoming project will be the Proton PERT Mk2 ( Evo VII ).

Thanks for reading !

Papercraft: Proton Wira 4WD Rally

Well, Proton Wira rally is a machine based on the legendary Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III. It is basically a rebadge of the Evo and driven by the flying 'Singh' that is Karamjit Singh and he is a legend.

I got this idea to do the papercraft version of the Wira a few years ago. That time I was still new thus it's not that good in terms of texturing. I just did it because there's no way I can purchase a kit/transkit or a diecast version of it. Just don't think I am wierd because I do simple papercrafts too.

1/10 Remote Control Ferrari FXX

Weird stuff ! It's a knock off product from a China company. Well, however, it manage to capture the features of the real Ferrari FXX. Such madness. Everything well replicated and the details are all correct except for the Ferrari embleems and the FXX wording (I removed it).

The front and rear lamps can light on when you push it fordward or reserve with the remote. Such a beauty. I never see a well made knock off RC before in my life and for RM 70, tt's worth paying the money.

Here it is with a Hotwheels basic car, so figure how big is this Ferrari FXX remote control car.
Enjoy !
