Topics I've Started

'75 MPC Dodge Dart Pro Stock WIP

03 May 2014 - 01:27 PM

Here's a second one that I'm working on while the '69 Chevelle is drying out.

The paint here is Testors one coat lacquer. I'd like to add lace to the body and some decals from the kit. The wheels are from an AMT drag car. A chute and wheelie bar could be in the works, along with some interior alterations.

Comments welcome!

'69 Chevelle Convertible WIP

Here's a Hugger Orange box stock that I'm currently working on. It will have a white interior and convertible boot, with a white stripe along the body.

Comments welcome!

1960 Ford Wagon Hubley

Here's a promo model that I found cheap because of the split in the hood and worn chrome. I'm still in the process of painting and finishing it. I want to alclad the chrome and finish painting and flocking the interior.

 

If you have any opinions on the wheels (I'm thinking chrome reverse or mag maybe?) or how to remove the discoloration in the windshield, please let me know. Comments welcome!

Here's what I started with:

1937 AMT Chevy Convertible Jalopy

19 January 2014 - 02:50 PM

I built this one like a late '50s, early '60s teenager hot rod. This was my first attempt at full scale weathering a model. I wired the engine, used speed parts from the kit, and cut an aluminum tube for the carbs. I also modified some pieces to fit the rear fender area, omitted the front fenders, bumpers, and moved the tail lights and license plate. The grille and engine parts have been dechromed.

 

After I took the photos, I noticed the windshield is too weathered for actual driving, as you can't see out after I applied the dull coat.
