Topics I've Started

My last ride

11 February 2015 - 08:16 AM

This is a model of the last car I was assigned to. I actually received a replacement for this six weeks before retirement but I rarely drove the new one.










Rustoleum Gloss White with airbrushed Tamiya Semi-Gloss Black for the trim. I used Tamiya spray bomb Navy Blue for the interior. Decals are a mix of Chimneyvill and home made to better depict what we had back then. Police equipment is from my spares box adapted to again, look like what we used.



AST Ford Expedition

Here's my take on the snap kit. Rustoleum Gloss White and Tamiya Semi-Gloss Black for the body. Rustoleum Khaki for the interior. Decals by Bill Bozo. The markings are for a newer vehicle that this but hey who cares. This is for my lovely wife anyway and she digs the bear.  









Panzer III G Afrika Korps

14 September 2014 - 01:46 PM

This is what I've been working on with what little spare time I've had recently.  I also posted this in the "All the Rest Community Build".


This is the older DML Pz III G with Panzer Art barrel/mantlet assembly. I scratchbuilt the jerry can rack and added some Value gear stowage. This is built as one of the original tanks in the theatre from Panzer Regiment 5. They hadn't quite gotten around to adding the stowage rack on the rear yet. They did realize the need for spare track and roadwheels though. The track sections also served as add on armor.


It's painted with my Tamiya mix for RAL 8000 over Tamiya Panzer Gray. I weathered it with oils, enamels and pastels.


The mottled appearence replicates how they looked what with the initial shortage of paint. I bought a case and made the desert base from modelling clay.











It's about time for another '32 Ford

20 May 2014 - 01:00 PM

I have been building military subjects nonstop for the better part of a year. I decided it's time to take a break and build a car.


One of my favorites is any deuce with an Ardun head engine. I found this while wondering around Wally World today, it has the appropriate Ardun engine.




When I got home I dug this moldy oldy from the stash.




I began by modifying the cross member to accept the shorter engine.






A bit o' frame work.




You can see where the front motor mounts will be located.




Nothing's been cleaned up yet. I'm tacking things together to check the fit. This was a later issue of the venerable '32 Ford Three Window and in my eyes the molds are certainly showing their age.




Sounding good

12 May 2014 - 04:09 PM

I was at a light yesterday evening sitting beside a honey in a Foxbody convertible. The car was a bit rough but that 5.0 sounded real sweet when the light went green.


I had almost  forgotten that sound, brought back some memories.


What "does it" for you?
