Pics from HMCA show in Indy 5/2/15

Today, 12:48 PM

I took some photos of the Hoosier Model Car Association Contest this past Saturday.  I thought I would share them with all of you. Just click on the link below.


 I had a great time, saw a lot of very nice built models, and found some good deals at the swap meet, ($12 for a complete '64 T-bolt kit)   and got to talk with some old friends that I haven't seen in awhile.

Red '90 Mustang Coupe

10 January 2015 - 02:56 PM

Here is a build I completed a couple months ago.  I started with the Revell kit and the Greg Wann resin body.


The resin body and the kit went together like a hand in a glove. I changed a few things, like the wheels and brakes from a Revell Saleen Speedster kit, seats from the 1:24 Revell 1993 Mustang Cobra kit. (Which fit really nice) I modified the engine compartment a little and added the Manifold, heads and headers from the '93 Cobra kit.

I added the strut tower brace from a late model Mustang kit and added an aluminum radiator from my parts box.

I put together an exhaust system from parts box parts. I made upper and lower control arms for the rear axle from scratch. Added sub frame connectors made from scrap styrene.

I cut the middle out of the resin hood and added the middle, but slightly bigger, part of the plastic kit hood to make a scale 2" cowl induction hood.


Everything that came with the resin body is shown in the last picture. All the parts are nicely cast, nice and crisp detail, smooth finish.
