1977 Dodge Monaco 4 door

20 July 2011 - 05:38 PM

Here is one that I posted a very long time ago in the work bench section. This one I could not get the hood to set right but over all was a fun build. I will say there are a few things I will correct when I build the next one like the gap in the inner fenders where you can see the tires through the gap. Enjoy!

1970 Monte Carlo Pro Street

19 July 2011 - 07:35 PM

Hey everyone! This is mainly a parts box build up. I started out with the Fast and Furious Monte Carlo and modified a pro street chassis. I had to work the body in the blind spots a lot to allow the tubs as well. It has the kit 454 engine. has a little aftermarket like Detail Master ignition wires, distributor, and air cleaner. The paint is Testors Lacquer one shot "Mythical Maroon" with wet look clear coat. I hope you like it. I had fun as I normally do not do pro street cars.

Hello friends

19 July 2011 - 07:27 PM

Hey everyone. It's been a long time since I've posted here. Not sure why. A lot had to do with my life having a few changes that were out of my hands. Some included not building much. I am back into the swing of things and even have a couple things done. I want to say sorry to all the community builds that I was in and never finished. I think there were a few I never started for that matter. I just wanted to say hi to the people that know me and also a hello to anyone new. I even had to figure out Photobucket again as it's been a long time since I've used it
:lol: Anyway, Off to post one of my new creations Under Glass.

Desert Scale Classic

15 April 2011 - 11:17 AM

I'm excited for tomorrow's show. I am not taking much as I have not been able to build a lot this year. My job takes me 70 miles a day in rush hour and my wife has a lot of health issues that require me doing most of the running around lately. I have a couple I'll take but I really just want to go hang out with fellow modelers. Last year a lot of you guys showed up from all over which was really cool to meet you. I hope to see a lot of you again. Anyway happy modeling!

A question for those that buy from Japan on Ebay

07 March 2011 - 06:04 PM

Hey everyone. I have been chasing 2 kits that I want and typically only find On Ebay. Most of these listings are from Japan and I've noticed a trend lately. A lot of the sellers are listing pretty cheap shipping but they are leaving customs up to the buyer. I used to see that the seller handled all of it but the bid prices were higher. Has anyone here had to go through customs with a purchase? What does it entail? How much estimated would it cost from Japan to say western U.S.? I have no experience in this but am curious. Here are the kits ( any variation ) that I'm looking at to give an idea. These are a bit pricey to me from U.S. sellers but maybe worth it? Thanks for any feed back everyone :unsure:
