AMT 1940 Willys Coupe

28 January 2015 - 04:52 AM

Howzit Guys…While I was building the latest version of the AMT 1940 Willys as a pick-up I liked the kit so much I went back to the local hobby shop to get a another kit to build as a Coupe!  Thanks to Round 2 for bringing these old kits back form our childhood so we can build ‘em right this time! B)

 

While the pick-up was built pretty much out the box tis one has some parts box pieces and aftermarket stuff.

 

The decals are one of Slixx new Gasser mini sheets.

The wheels are from AMT’s latest edition of the Chevy 62 Bel Air (Northwind stocker),  The wheels have been widened.

The blower scoop and rear tires are from a Revell SWC Willys.

The Valve stems are pro tech.

The paint is a custom mixed pearl burgundy over a black base with a lacquer clear covering it all

Thanks for takin’ a look, Aloha…Pete

AMT 1940 Wiillys Pickup

15 November 2014 - 06:31 AM

This is AMT's latest reissue of the 1940 Wiilys 2 'N' 1 kit built 100% out the box except for one decal on the tailgate.  Base color is Krylon Peek a Boo Blue, followed by a thin coat of pearl blue flip flop, and some urethane clear to seal it all.  This was a favorite kit when I was a kid and it still builds pretty much hassle free  after all these years.  The kit builds into a pretty nice model with a little work...it does need some tweaking here and there but doesn't need a lot of additional detailing to look good sitting on the shelf.  The new wheels and tires included in this issue are a big improvement compared to the old ones. 

 

All in all, a fun build with a whole bunch of nostalgia thrown in.  Thanks for takin' time to have a look.

 

Aloha...Pete
