'69 Charger

19 October 2014 - 06:52 AM

Here's the Revell '69 Charger kit.  This was mostly box-stock with the exception of flocking for the carpeting, BMF for the trim, and wiring up the engine.  Nothing too fancy, but it was kinda fun.

GT40

29 September 2014 - 06:12 AM

This is the Revell release of the Ford GT40 MKII #98 driven at the Daytona 24 Hours race back in 1966.  I think it's a repackaging of the old Fujii kit.  This is a curbside kit so there's no engine.  It was built box stock without anything special.  It was fun.

Heller Bugatti T.50

29 September 2014 - 06:08 AM

This is the Heller release of the Bugatti T.50.  When I opened the kit, I found that the body was missing.  I wrote Heller and they shipped me a new body, but it arrived broken in five pieces.  After a bit of bodywork, I got started on the rest of the build.  That's when I noticed that the chrome tree was missing.  Once again, I wrote and waited.  It arrived unbroken, but the chrome was not very well done.  I ended up stripping the chrome and used Alclad.  The fit on alot of the parts was not exact, so it took a bit of finessing to get it together.  The body is sitting all the way down on the chassis, but it still sits a bit high.  The car is finally complete, but I'm not sure if I want to try another Heller car model or not.  Here's the pics:\

With windows all around, it was tough getting a pic of the interior, but here's what I ended up with

Danica Patrick 2012 Impala

13 September 2014 - 06:09 PM

Here's the 2012 Impala driven by Danica Patrick.  The kit was the AMT Jeff Gordon car with a homemade nose and Powerslide decals.  I made a few modifications such as adding missing roll cage bars, rear springs, modified the dash, and wired up the ignition modules.  Overall I'm happy with how it came out, though there are a few things I would like to have done a little differently.

1964 Ford Galaxie

31 August 2014 - 07:16 AM

This was the AMT kit built box-stock.  I didn't change up anything on this.  The kit was based on a promo.  As such, it's curbside with no engine and retains the solid metal axles and one-piece chassis.  It was kinda fun just having a simple build that didn't require alot of thinking or effort.  All I did was add BMF and flocking to the interior.
