Mr. Unswitchable - Update 4-9-15

24 March 2015 - 12:19 PM

I started work on this probably two years ago and haven't really touched it in 18 months .  

I pulled it out last week and finished up the grille and bumpers , then found some wheels and tires to take these photos .  It needs some body work and the flares added to wheel openings and to the roof opening .

 

Like the title says this will be a long project but it's back on my bench and I hope to get the body finished in a couple of weeks , then start the custom chassis !

A Very Rare T'rantula !

06 February 2015 - 11:26 AM

This is a rare Tom Daniel kit that most don't even know exists ,  the "Li'l T'rantula" .

 

I filled the body seams ,  painted it Sub-Lime Green ,  added home made decals ,  and cleared it with TS-13 .  A few pieces from my parts box and some Alcad Chrome finishes it off .

 

Thanks for looking !

Monogram Blue Beetle

17 January 2015 - 08:23 AM

 This is a restoration of an original model that I actually built when I was a kid ,  maybe 11 or 12 years old !   I used only the original parts with no extra detailing or aftermarket goodies ,  and the only modification I made was to add the poseable steering . 

It was in pretty bad shape so after I cleaned everything I polished the blue plastic and cleared it with TS-13 .  The chrome was stripped and sprayed with Alcad Chrome .  And I made my own decals .

 

Here's what I started with

And here's the finished restoration .
