Topics I've Started

1964 T-Bird

17 August 2014 - 03:43 AM

Been a while, had to take a break due to buying a new house. All moved in and set up with my new shop/office and ready to build again. Here's the first quickie done. AMT promotional bought off the 'Bay. Took it apart, cleaned it, interior is done in white and black, roof was shot in white enamel gloss, body is original Florentine Green, buffed out, and applied BMF. Front bumper is done in Spaz-Stix.

'62 Imperial Crown 4 door hardtop

I've had this kit for about 25 years, molded in maroon, built and needing a restoration. Finally did something with it. The Foxcraft fender skirts were glued so tight that I could not attempt getting them off without breaking the quarters, so they live on. This is an old Revell kit from late '61, and no replacement parts are available, so I had to be careful. The color is '62 Mopar Sapphire Blue metallic, laquer with several coats of DuPont 7480S clear. It is built as a curbside due to lack of detail under the hood. Interior is a matching blue with charcoal metallic dash, and black flocking for carpet and rear deck. Chrome is done in Spaz-Stix. After looking at it for 25 years in it's former sad state, I'm happy to have it done now.

1979 Plymouth Horizon TC-3

17 June 2014 - 08:42 AM

Got this kit from Al Rich (thatz4u) in an awesome trade deal! Thanks Al! I changed it from a TC-3 Sport, to a base model TC-3 by removing the molded in rear spoiler, removing the molded in quarter window half louvers, and adding white wall tires. It's finished to simulate Nightwatch Blue, but it's a little bright in the sun. Straight enamel with Dupont 7480S clear. What a junk kit these things are. Nothing fits, everything is pretty much a guess. Man how I don't miss the '80s! It sits a tad high and the wheels should be tucked in a bit, but that would call for quite a bit of fabrication. Just a shelf model of an odd subject.

'07 base model Corvette

Extremely quick detail of an Atomic Orange metallic Revell dealer promo. Revell did a great job on these........the only thing left to be done was the black on the A pillars, around the drip rails and the door handles. Not crazy about these cars, just wanted one in my collection to represent this style of 'Vette.

'61 Oldsmobile F-85 Deluxe wagon

I've had this kit since the early 80's and just got around to building it now. I replaced the skinny white walls with a more correct set of wide whites, color is to simulate '61 Olds Garnet Mist metallic, interior is satin maroon and silver, with maroon flocking. DuPont 7480S clear. Lot's of BMF, I think I'll build a dragster next to get a break from it for a while.
