Kool and Klean: Featured builder Kris H.

Still on an international (virtual that is) trip I’m now in the land of wind mills clogs and plenty of flat lands to bring you Kris Hoekstras klean builds.

I started seeing his builds back in 2008 when I bumped into automotive forums and SPC web sites. (More on those later) I’ve always been amazed by his builds. So when it comes to klean and simple details Kris has no problems getting them down. With car show shines or patina, a lowered stance or stock height and a nice set of wheels anything can happen in his hands. Varying from all makes and models to 4 wheels or 2, he will not disappoint.

Here’s some more on the man himself .

“I’m Kris Hoekstra and I’m 26 years old. I live in the Netherlands and have been building models for about 11 years now.

My main interest are cars and motorbikes. I have no particular kind of style I build. I’m a big VAG fan and I really love the old aircooled VW’s so I build them often. I build anything cause I like and respect every kind of modified cars. JDM, Muscle cars, VIP, Clean, and even the ”tupperware” tuning from a few years ago. I’d like to build simple projects. My main motto is keep it simple. Any car will look good with a nice set of rims, lowered rideheight and a nice paintjob and a few cool details.

Since a year of two ago, I was asked to build commissioned builds for others. Which is very cool off course cause I can improve my scratchbuilding skills. I also build for a Dutch modelling magazine. It’s great to see people reading an article about my own work!

Here are a couple of my latest projects:

1/24 Tamiya Mitsubishi Lancer Evo. VI
1/24 Fujimi EM Porsche 356A Speedster
1/24 Hasegawa VW T1
1/24 Revell VW T1 Jagermeister
1/25 AMT 1955 Chevrolet Stepside pick up
1/25 Revell Dodge Challenger SRT-8
1/24 Revell Ferrari California
1/24 Fujimi VW Golf MK1 GTI
1/24 Hasegawa VW T1
1/6 Tamiya BMW R75/5

In the future I hope to build till I die, cause I have a life time stash waiting to be build.

Cheers,

Kris Hoekstra”
