Hi guys,

I want to show you my second larger conversions:
It's a Minichamps Audi TTS, which I started to build, when I was on vacation in Italy.

Here is the work of three weeks:


First I was getting rid of the paint:

Posted Image


Then I cut to pieces of this out of the lower radiator grill:

Posted Image

After destroying 6 of my 8 cutting wheels, the car looks like this,

Posted Image

A few days later, I began with cutting the radial grill and putting typical S-Lines in,

Posted Image

My draft was a group of pictures of the Audi TTS and I built the car without any rules or other facilities.

Posted Image

Then I filled the Polystyrol contures with smoothing cement.

Posted Image

After that, I burnished the body:

Posted Image

And now, the actual condition:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

The color of the car will be Audi glow orange:

Posted Image

The TTS gets new wheels of an Audi R8 4.2 FSI.


I hope you like it.

I think I have to disappoint you, I'm building most of the cars just for my own collection.
But in the future, there will be some other TT conversions, like the TT RS or a B&B TT500.

I would be glad, if I had some more people interested in my work :hope:

I have another Update for you.

In the last few days, I worked om the following parts:
- Rearbumper/Diffusor
- Interior
- Frontbumper

The orignal diffusor looks like this:

Posted Image
Mine looks like this, but I'm not satisfied with the actual condition.

Working on the seats to close the gaps.

I also closed some holes in one of the doors.

After this, I painted the Seats black,grey will follow, because the Interior will have this combination:
Posted Image


I also started working on the frontbumper:
Cutting out the original lights:

Posted Image
Then I constructed the four bars:

Raidou already indicated me, that they look too heavy and I will rebuild these parts of the bumper.

Hi there,

I have an update for you.
As raidou critized me, I worked 5 1/2 hours on rebuilding the right frontlatice.
The result: I love poystyrene.

The new latice consists of 41 parts, the old one was about 11 parts.
I used 17,7 centimeters of pipeshape and 26,9 cm of quadangleshape.

Here are some photos.

Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image
Posted Image

As I adjusted the new frontlatice, I had to scale down some material. The result: A hole in the middle of the latice....damn!!!!!! I will close the hole in a few days.


Posted Image
Posted Image

Here you can see the direct contrast between the old and the new latice:

Posted Image

I hope you like it.
By the way, does anybody know how to change the title of the topic?

Another custom project thread worth following! Wow, I envy your patience and talent. Very impressive build. That first photo of the paint being stripped off of the model looks down right eerie - as though that model survived a nuclear blast. Posted Image

Guys, here you can watch my "successor" growing up!   :rolleyes:
A little bit more than one year ago Niklas contacted me via my homepage. We developed a lively touch and he wanted to learn all about diecast customizing. From the very first moment I knew that he means business!
He didn't just read and talk but he implemented my advice immediately and without any knowledge or practice before he made it almost perfect at first go.
Just to recall: he's only 17!
That's what I call a real talent!   :occasion14:

It's a pleasure for me to follow Niklas' work and see him getting better and better.
Keep it going, buddy! Posted Image

Niklas, you're an inspiration to us all! That took alot of courage to contact an expert like Rainer and ask to be "shown the ropes." Looking forward to see more of your natural ability. Thanks for taking the time to share and to Rainer for being so gracious! Posted Image
