TINGOS, The interior King.

Posted by jevries on Wednesday, October 26, 2011,


As soon as the custom work of Agustine Villegas aka Tingos hit Lay it Low all eyes were on him.
He creates incredible looking 1/25 scale custom interiors with an old school lowrider touch using all kinds of
materials like felt, flocking, mirror plastic, foam sheets, fabrics, etc. Tingos is a great artist when it comes down to combining all kinds of wild colors creating cool patterns that perfectly match the painted body of the lowrider model.
Tingos is a proud member of Los Underground model car...

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.

The main focus with this model is to create an authentic looking rear drive setup complete with drive shaft.

I tried diffe...

This is one of my latest creations and work in progress a 1/12 radio controlled lowrider tricycle. This miniature trike rolls back and forth, steers, hops the front and has a 4GB MP3 player with amplifier on board.
Initially it had some problems with steering but after adding a micro differential it steers perfect!
The overall style of this tricycle is inspired by Latin Active II a cr...

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...
