Question for all customizers...

1041 Views 12 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  SSpray
I know we have a few customizers on board who love to show their, thank you as I love looking at it :giggle

I keep all my custom on the very top of my cabinets in 1:18 cases as I like to display them separately. I am looking at them right now and tried to figure out which I like the best. :tempted

Really couldn't pick just one so I chose these two.

Which of your very own custom pieces do you like the best :feedback

Those look sweet, Darrick. Do you have any "before" shots for comparison?

Here is a before of the MB SLR, I don't have any before pics of the Enzo.

I love all my customs. The only problem is I have too many to display and most still need some work!

One of my favourites is the lifted ram in my signiture. I would like to redo the front suspension on that too!
I also have some moded F40's, a targa, complete roof chop (inspired by one that Allan Model did) and I'm working on some racers too. I don't have any picts of them in a suitible state to show though. I am hoping to get into some serious modding this summer! (I am in the Southern Hemisphere!)

Thanks, Darrick. I like that new color for the interior!
That SLR looks awesome! :tongue
How did you take apart your SLR to get ot the interior, Darrick? I've tried with mine but I can only remove one screw and I don't want to risk breaking the model. :feedback
My proudest custom work is the work that I did on my Dodge Charger. Although I made no body mods, I'm really happy with how the engine bay and interior turned out after working on them.

My proudest work is this GT2. So many things are changed or painted.
Nearly all parts.
I will do the same work with other rims and double pipe exhaust.
Still waiting for a GT2.

Both of these took alot of work to finish. The EXT won't look like this soon, its going in for more work but the Supra still looks this way. I still love my Autoart Murcielago more than anything even though I only put on new rims.

My favorite custom sofar is my '89 MB 500SL. I didn't really start customizing my diecast until '02 ...(just maybe a dark wash here and there)
Here are two of my cars that I will never sell.

The first is an Ertl 275 GTB/4 . It was origianlly white. I repainted it yellow and added the front & rear suspension from a Hot Wheels 365 GTS/4 .
The second is an Ertl 1970 Chevelle Street Machine. It was originally purple. I repainted it silver and added wheels from the YM Gasser vette.

my fav custom was my walkinshaw limousine, there was a heck of alot of work in it, and i said i would never sell it then one day i had it on display in my local model shop and was offered au$2000 for it. it was a hard decission, but i have all the moulds for the interior and side panels etc if i do decide to make another one for my collection.
as for my other customs, they are still scattered around the place till i get my cabinet to display them
How did you do the wheels on the SLR so well?

The SLR looks great!
