Pantera

20 July 2014 - 07:57 AM

This is the Testor's kit of the Pantera GTS.  My son decided on the colors (black with gold wheels) and the interior colors (grey with red trim).  The only thing I changed was the front spoiler.  I didn't like the square cut front edge of the kit body, so I rounded it off.  Also, it was missing the front axles, so I made some with styrene rod.  The rest is box-stock.  It's a curbside kit so there is no engine detail at all.

Hurst Hemi Under Glass

13 July 2014 - 05:34 AM

This was built from the Model King re-release of the Hurst Hemi Under Glass.  It's a pretty simple kit without alot of parts.  I used Slixx decals instead of the kit decals and I wired the engine.  This was also my first time trying to do a fading paint job.

Here's a couple of pics of the engine:

The decals came with the sponsors for under the car as well.  Unfortunately, in order for this to fit, it would have to connect to the front springs, which would be a little unrealistic.  I figured I would use this as a small advertising sign for the car instead.

And what good would a wheel-stander be without a picture of it doing a wheelie?

Lamborghini Diablo

30 June 2014 - 05:07 AM

This is the AMT Lamborghini Diablo kit.  I built it straight from the box.  The only changes I did were to add flocking to the interior and opened up the vents below the windshield.  It was kinda fun to do a model without any extra effort that I honestly didn't really care for - it took all the pressure off trying to make it perfect.  The kit is not that great but if you see one at a flea market then it might be a good buy.  Anyway, hope you enjoy it.

AJ Foyt '65 Galaxie

15 June 2014 - 02:14 PM

This car started as the stock AMT '65 Galaxie kit.  I trimmed the chrome trim off the body and smoothed it out.  I had to modify the chassis to remove the molded in exhaust.  I used plastic tubing for the exhaust.  I modified the interior and scratched up the rollcage.  I added seat belts and shoulder belts along with buckles and bolsters.  I fabbed up a fuel cell for the trunk and made shocks from plastic tubing and rod.  I removed the emblem from the grill and stripped the chrome, replacing it all with Alclad.  The wheels and tires were made by me from resin.  I fabbed up the hood and trunk pins.  I wired the engine and used an air cleaner from the parts box.  The decals are a combination of Penngwen decals and some of my own homemade decals.

Chrysler Sebring

02 June 2014 - 04:16 AM

This is the Lindberg Chrysler Sebring model kit.  It's a curbside snap-together kit.  I wanted to build this like my old Sebring that I used to own.  I also tried my hand at photo-etching for the first time and I learned a few things.  The seat belts are from craft store ribbon and the buckles and latches are my first attempt at photo-etching anything.  Overall, I'm pleased with how it came out, though I wish it had been a more detailed kit and I wish my p/e parts came out better.
