ford bronco engine question.

15 October 2013 - 06:23 AM

Hi guys,ive started another kit a amt ertl ford bronco.

This will be the a better version of the revell 4x4 bronco that was out years ago.

So just need to know,is the engine in the kit the best detailed engine for a bronco.

If not is there a better looking engine that can be used.

Also over here on the otherside of the pond,getting testors paint isn't easy.

So would this be the correct paint for ford blue humrol 15 midnight sky.

This is how my amt bronco will look,and I'll be using parts from this kit.

help and ideas for my 69 camaro

24 September 2013 - 08:27 AM

Me again guys............

 

Ok I'm halfway through building the US revell 69 z-28 camaro.

And i need some help and ideas to finish it off.

 

What's the beat way and how to make a racing style dash.

Just want to panel off the car dials area.

 

I've lost some parts of the kit engine,so what other Chevy engine would fit this kit,or is there any resin ones available.

 

I don't want to use the kit exhaust,and want somthing better looking.

Somthing eaither side exit or straight through rear exit.

Any ideas as I'll need to use somthing with a replaced engine.

 

I will put some pics up in the build section so you can see what I've done so far.

Will title it my z-28 camaro police car

 

Thanks,

Rich


opinion on these wheels

23 September 2013 - 03:51 AM

ok had this build going on for ages and want to wrap it up.

the idea of this car,is to be a mad max style interceptor.

if mad max was to have had a US muscle car my idea would of been a 69 camaro.

now the wheels im stuck on what would suit this style of car and how its finished.

what your thoughts on these wheels to be finished in matt or satin black.

ford Talladega/ford falcon

08 September 2013 - 05:27 AM

Been looking into getting the aoshima mad max interceptor.
But prices are crazy and i don't want it as the second movie car but the first movie.
So been looking into building my own version of a interceptor.
The only car i can find close to a falcon is a ford Talladega.
Is there anywhere that does a simlar bonnet/hood like the falcon,to fit the Talladega.
Also which Talladega is better.amt,mongram or revell.
Thanks in advance,and please move if in the wrong section.

Hi guys,not been on here for a while but nice to see the forum is still going strong,and and super models being made.
Ok over the weekend a few good films where on and one being every which way but loose,one of my favourate films.
And after seeinf this film lots and lots of times,i only just noticed the pickup truck that was pushed into the water.
What i seen of it,it was great looking like a brown/bronze in colour and had some nice pinstriping to it.
So could someone please tell me what truck this was,and if there is a kit available.

Massive thanks,
