Revell/Renwal Ferrari 275gtb

While I'm at it, has anyone attempted to build and detail this old kit?  I've actually never seen one completed.

1/12 Revell Mercedes 300SL

How many of you have built this kit and what did you experience with it?


I have one that I've let sit for years and years (like so many of my "must have" models), and I am considering paying ridiculous bucks for the new diecast version rather than building the Revell version.  The Revell seems ok, but compared to all my other 1/12 models it doesn't seem very detailed or well molded.  Plus, it looks like all the bright work is attached by most visible areas and the chrome will be ruined when detaching.  What's your solution for this?

'57 Nomad project

Do any of you think this could be taken apart and rebuilt into a mild street rod/machine Nomad?  It's the only 1/2 scale Nomad out there as far as I know, and I've played with the idea of converting one of the Monogram coupes, but the whole rear tailgate and window arrangement would be almost impossible to replicate.

Found this on ebaaaay:




Does this look good enough to consider?  Some pics don't look so good, but can't tell.  Kinda pricey, too.

1/8 '65 Vette WIP needs wire mags

07 September 2013 - 04:11 PM

I have put aside this project for awhile, but would like to get back to it.  I want to replicate my 1965 Corvette that I restored into a mild resto-mod in 1984.  I chose a set of Enkei wire mags to with the theme, but have not been able to find such a wheel in 1/8 scale.  I have a set of resin "snowflakes" like the Pontiac TransAms used, but the difference just bothers me.  Any sources or suggestions?

Here's my first build of the model where I used the original stock color and wheel covers.  I dismantled it, saved the chassis, and started over with the body.
