Tutorials

The tutorials below show you exactly my way of doing things. They may not necessarily mean that these are the best procedures to follow out there, but they are the methods I found best to work with. I have experimented with many different procedures over time and finally made up my own from all the experiences I've come across. I believe that every modeller has his own ways of doing things, so feel free to view my tutorials and adapt them for yourself.

Applying Flocking

Whenever I post pictures of my completed interiors, people ask me about how I lay down the carpets! So when I started doing the Fujimi Civic EK interior, I saw it as the perfect base to document the whole flocking process.

Lowering a Fujimi Honda Civic (EK model)


If you're building a Fujimi Honda Civic EK, most probably you're thinking about lowering the body on the wheels. When I built my own Civic, I figured out the best method for me and documented the whole process to help other modeller do the same!

Getting a Body ready for Primer

This is the complete procedure I follow from the moment I take a body out of the box, until I lay primer on it. People often ask me what method, tools or sandpaper I use to prepare a body... well, wonder no more... it's inside this tutorial!! 

Fitting Male Wheel adaptors

This tutorial is about fitting male adaptors to the back of our rims and then using them on female brakes, mostly popular with Tamiya kits. This is to show you my way of fitting them at a 90° angle with the rim, which is important to fit the wheel straight

Modifying the Wheels depth

Nowadays many of us are using a combination of tires and rims to get the required look. But sometimes, the rims are wider than the tires and therefore would require cutting out to get to size. This tutorial explains my way of getting them the same size!

Lowering certain Tamiya kits, the easier way!

Lowering a model car may sometimes be a headache as it involves lots of thinking and work. But with certain Tamiya kits, this headache can be saved since there's an easy procedure you can follow, which will leave your wheels rotating freely too!
