1974 Challenger front clip

30 April 2015 - 10:13 AM

Does anyone remember a '74 Challenger kit that came out, probably in the mid 70's with a front clip like the Superbird?  I just found mine in the attic and am starting to restore it, but it's a mess.  I'm looking for ideas?  Instructions?  

 

Thanks

Firebird Convertible

27 March 2015 - 04:03 AM

Just for kicks I thought I'd show you my Firebird that I recently completed.  After many, many years in our hot attic, I decided to resurrect it.  But one of the tires had melted into the rear glass!

So, what to do?  I made it into a convertible, of course.  Cut out the sunroof panels on the front windshield, fabricated a "trunk" and made a boot from scratch, based on some pictures I found on the world wide web.

So don't throw those old kits out!  Re-purpose them! Thanks for looking

Dodge L-700

I haven't built a truck in a long time, and can't believe I picked this one to start.  I shelved it a number of times, but finally stuck it out long enough to call it finished.

Yes, the doors do open, but I think I'll keep them in the closed position for now!

1958 Baker Impala

21 March 2015 - 04:26 AM

I finally finished this '58 Impala convertible with Buddy Baker's markings.  This was a very fun build, and all started because I bought a kit with no glass.  So I cut down a windshield from a '55 chevy truck, and added duct tape for a frame.  On the Bench pictures can be found at http://www.modelcars...topic=91336&hl=

I wrapped some sprue with yarn to make the roll bar.

Dodge L-700 help please

07 March 2015 - 03:46 PM

Guys:

 

A short while ago I bought the Dodge L-700, the one with the flatbed and the '40 Ford Coupe.  While I've been working on the cab, and the cab working on me (why won't those doors line up????) I put the other parts aside.  But now that I'm working on the trailer I can only find 2 of the outer rims.  Either I lost them somehow, or they weren't in the box to begin with.  

 

Has anyone else had that problem?  

 

Thanks 

 

John
