Petty Pontiac

22 January 2015 - 04:47 PM

This is the Monogram STP Curb Racing Pontiac from 1984.  I didn't do anything special with this at all.  I was kinda in a slump so I did this to get off my arse and do something.  The tires had melted parts of the body including the A-pillars, as well as parts of the windshield and rear window, so I did a little bit of patching and made do.  I used the kit decals, but I figured the color would bleed through pretty badly, so I made copies and laid down white decal paper first.  This definitely helped most of the decals not to bleed through as they would have otherwise, though I forgot to do this for the passenger side numbers.  Anyway, on to the pics.

Aston Martin DB4

23 November 2014 - 05:55 AM

Here's the Revell reissue of the Aurora Aston Martin DB4.  The clear plastic parts were a bit messed up and would not fit.  I had to use clear glue to fill the gaps between where the windows ended and where the window frames began.  The glass was also cracked in a few spots and was generally not in good shape.  It took a bit of work, but it all finally came together.  I added flocking for the carpeting in the interior cabin and in the trunk.  I also stripped the chrome (since it was not in good shape) and I sprayed the chrome pieces with Alclad.  I hope you like it

This is the AMT King Cobra kit.  I based this build not on any particular car, but just on an idea.  I knew a few guys back in the 80s that loved to cruise.  They (alright, me too) would run slicks when able to, and they would do what they could to hop things up, but they kept the cars street legal.  That's how I decided to build this kit.

Jaguar XK SS

This is the Revell Germany release of this kit.  I modeled it after my Uncle Al's car.  I had planned on doing a few things to it, but the kit is not simple and I ended up happy just to have completed it.  At the end, few parts would fit properly without adjustments/drilling/trimming/cutting of some sort.  It is mostly box stock with flocking and Alclad being the only "adjustments" I made to the kit.

Fireball's '64 Galaxie

02 November 2014 - 05:23 AM

I built this car from the AMT '64 Galaxie kit.  I used a Modelhaus interior, dash, and seat with homemade decals for the dashboard.  I scratched up the rollcage with styrene rod.  I used brass tubing for the exhaust.  The wheels and tires are homemade resin pieces.  The decals are from Fred Cady.  The hood and trunk pins are needles and wire with sequins for the plates.  I used Alclad on the bumpers and grill. The paint is a custom mix using Creatix paints.
