Artwork by Freeflow 1/12 scale '64 Impala

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, June 17, 2012,


On my last trip to Indonesia I left one of my 1/12 scale 1964 Impala models with Fahmi Freeflow in Bandung.
You wouldn't say but Freeflow never worked on a scale model before. He's known in Asia for his outstanding
 paintjobs and pinstriping on cars, motorcycles and helmets. Check out his work:

I used Hasegawa Mirror Finish foil for the chrome trimm. It's a micro thin plastic type of foil stretchable and it 
sticks very well. It's a bit harder to work wit...

NEW Edition True 13"Wire Wheels 1/25 scale.

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, December 4, 2011,


Been working hard on a new edition of True 13" lowrider wire wheels lately. These new wire wheels feature all 
the details and 
are the most authentic looking wire wheels up to date created by Jevries. Each individual spoke

the right side holds 5 sets of white walls.
The p...

J-Sonic 1/25 scale Color Bar FINAL batch!

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, October 9, 2011,


The final batch of the J-Sonic Color Bar for your 1/25 scale cruiser. I created quite a lot of these really cool miniature
Color Bars but it's a very time consuming process that's why this is the last batch I will ever make.
The Color Bar is super tiny and fits perfect under the dashboard of a classic 1/25 scaled model cars. It comes already
assambled including a micro switch, battery and miniature packaging you only need to use a piece of electrical
tape to 
mount the prongs to the battery.

R.I.P. Ryan Happe aka 1ofaknd

Posted by Jevries on Wednesday, August 31, 2011,


I have known Ryan aka 1ofaknd for a long time and even though we never met in person I really enjoyed 
the conversations and friendship we shared online. 
Ryan was an excellent model car creator and above all a great person who you could trust and depend on.
Working with him creating the 
famous Real Deal '64 model was a great experience we both enjoyed.
Ryan was the owner of Scale Lows and was planning to get back in business and serve people around the globe 
selling custom model parts. Unfortuna...

1/25 scale lowrider TRUE 13"s finished!

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, August 15, 2010,


Creating the TRUE 13" lowrider wire wheels took quite some time and patience. Combining two slices of the Aoshima rims was hard because they are tappered and don't line up. Bondo and lot's of carefull sanding resulted in a clean looking dish with nipples resambling the OG 13" lowrider style wheel.



For the spokes/ wires I used an old style deep dish Pegasus wire wheel. They have a better definition and depth than the new style Pegasus wheels which look quite flat more like a euro wire wheel. I ...

Coming soon: TRUE 13 inch see thru wire wheels & 5.20 tires

Posted by Jevries on Saturday, July 17, 2010,


I'm always looking for ways to improve and come up with new model low stuff like these TRUE 13 inch wire wheels complete with 5.20 tires. Many modelers out there like the fact that you can see thru the spokes just like the real thing. The Pegasus see thru wire wheels are way to big and don't have the extra rim details. I used two Aoshima resin casted hubs and milled Pegasus see thru wires to come up with this all TRUE 13 inch wire wheel that has the right size and details in 1/25 scale.
I will...

1/25 scale Chevy Monte Carlo LS clip part 2

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, May 16, 2010,


After I placed and cut all the tiny pieces of styrene between the horizontal bars I glued small strips on top to give the vertical bars a cleaner look. I created a small silicone mold and casted the grill using Smooth-on 300 urethane resin. Using a pressure pot is a must to make sure all the tiny details will be preserved. The resin copy looks great and it's a the big plus that the result is not a solid resin grill that you find in standard model kits but you can really see thru it.
I decided ...

Scale wire wheels & Knock offs part 2

Posted by Jervries on Sunday, May 16, 2010,


Creating the 1/25 scale Aoshima copy wire wheels it became clear that casting the small tires using black urethane rubber is a difficult and time consuming process. The urethane rubber needs to cure for over 16 hours and pouring the honey thick material inside the small silicone mold was annoying. I decided to create a new silicone mold with the true 5.20 tire placed on the rim and casted in white urethane resin. This material cures in about 10 minutes so I can produce a lot more copies in a ...

Remastering a 1/25 1996 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham model

Mario Montano's '90's Cadillac Fleetwood lowrider

 
For years it has been a wish of mine to create a 1/25 radio controled ' '96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham model also know as the big body Cadillac.
Years ago I bought an original All American Resin limo model cut it in half to create a regular four door version but patience ran dry and I never got the nerves to finish it. This model finally ended up in the US and after an unfortunate series of events the remains where send to my friend Kris Diaz ...

The 1/10 scale '96 Cadillac Fleetwood Big Body

Posted by Jevries on Wednesday, March 17, 2010,

picture by El Volo

I'm obsessed with the '96 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham for many years now and that's the reason why I wanted to create a large scale model of it. 5 years ago I started to build one but I did not prepare myself enough to pull it of. 

 

 A year ago I gave it another shot collecting hundreds of pictures from the internet and with help of my homie Mario Montano from Imperials C.C. in Phoenix who did all the measuring using his own Cadillac Fleetwood.

 
 
I started out using two RC 1/1...

Creating the 1/24 RC Cadillac Brougham

Posted by Jevries on Monday, February 22, 2010,

 
 Way before I build Real Deal '64 Impala I had this idea in mind to create a full function RC 1/24 miniature lowrider that performs almost every trick and still feature an interior.

  

After I finished Real Deal '64 I started working on the design for the setup that differs from Real Deal because I wanted it to be very solid and pretty maintance free. The front setup is solid enough to make it hop although in this case I left the hopping out since I wanted to build a classic lowrider cru...
