  8. What would YOU like to see as a model

    Recently thought of a few more I'd like to see in 1/25, in Revell/Moebius quality: a 1965 Dodge Dart GT, a 1970-73 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am, 1965-66 Mustang 2+2 GT, and a 1968 Plymouth Barracuda hardtop. I'm sure I'll think of more, but for now this is enough butting my head against a wall.

  10. Trade question

    Going to be getting rid of many models soon. What i would like to know before posting is there anyone here that has HO-1/87 trains they would be willing to trade. I ask this before posting pics because if not they go to the other site for sale. Thought I might give first shot here though. Thanks for your time.

  15. 57 Chevy Nomad - revell

    Well the adventure has begun. I've taken a 4 year hiatus from model building but the bug has bit again after dusting off my neglected ones recently. My re-entry is a 57 Chevy nomad which I first built as a young kid. I loved that car so much I used to take it everywhere with me. Eventually it met it's end when I left it on the dash of my aunt's car during a hot summer day. Back then I just assembled the kits without paint but was still deeply upset when I found the twisted/warped remains after a day at the zoo. So off to fleabay and I found this opened kit for a good price and pulled the trigger. For the past 20 years I've built primarily tamiya and fujimi kits because they are straight and require little work to get them to piece together correctly. Having started on this nomad I'm reminded how terrible these older kits are in comparison. Some of the injection molding did not take completely and the chrome is awful with satin mottling everywhere as well as excessive flashing. Then there is the molded trim which is uneven and blends into the body at places. Fortunately I've been able to correct most of the body issues but the engine which suffered most from the improper injections is going in the garbage. Instead I've order a resin kit of a 400 small block chevy from BNL resins. I'm also going to try my hand at re-chroming the trim parts with molotow and an airbrush. I've never used that stuff before so this will be an experience that I hope brings satisfactory results. If not I'm going to black out the car so I haven't yet decided what the paint will be yet. I'm also going to try my hand at building leaf springs for the rear suspension using styrene strips and am pulling out the stops for all the other detailing items I typically skip over. This means it will be a slow build. So far I'm happy with the shell after 12 or so hours of filing, sanding and fitting parts. As a kid I recall it was tricky to get all the opening parts to line up so this time I've spent extra time to ensure I get the gaps even. Getting the headlight trim to sit flush has been a challenge. I'm going to have to fill and my 15 year old tube of model putty is no good so back to the hobby store. Going to toss the hood and get a resin high rise with chrome delete instead. This will allow me to toss the hood hinge and fill in the firewall where the hinge openings are currently. Finally I need some wheels. Don't want to go 20" low profile but would like to get something a little more updated. Haven't decided on anything yet so if there are suggestions please let me know your thoughts. Anyways this is the start of what I hope to be my best build yet.

  19. Comet might be on the coarse side, but most cleansers (with plenty of water) work pretty well. I've never mixed cleanser with Dawn dish soap...not saying it doesn't work though. Too, do the cleaning BEFORE doing any sanding, filing, or grinding on the parts.

  25. Loadstar Brush Truck

    This weekend provided some time to get some additional work done on the Loadstar. The tank and body are still separate pieces which made painting them much easier. The tank was painted first and set aside. Then the front and side panels of the body were painted red. After the red was dry it was masked off and the rest was painted with engine black, a semi-gloss. Finally the treadplate deck was painted with chrome silver. I added the trim rings to the rear tail lights and now have to drill them out for the lenses. Next up will be to finish the front bar work that is still hanging out in space. In the top photo the winch cable is just hanging for now. It will be set in place once the bar work is done.
