Topics I've Started

2007 Mustang GT Ultraviolet

29 June 2014 - 03:39 PM

This kit is a definite custom/kitbash effort. In play here are side scoops from the 2006 Hertz kit, Resin 'Eleanor' style hood and side-window scoops from eBay. The wheel and tire treatment was donated from the 2010 Shelby Mustang kit, and the power is supplied by the supercharged 2007 Shelby kit. The unique nose is comprised of an upper-grille from the 2006 Hertz (also the California Special front bumper available from Ford) and the lower section of the nose is from the 2007 Shelby kit. I also extended the splitter since that nose was originally intended for a race-conversion build. The Interior is from the Hertz with '07 Shelby Cobra seats. The paint is Testors Ultraviolet Pearl, which is a 1996 Ford color, and wet-look clear.

Request to Dupe My Hood

18 June 2014 - 07:23 PM

I have a resin hood from RDSFX2 from eBay. He's long-gone except the FB page, and I'm not sure whom did the master or where else this piece came from. I'd really love to get a few copies. Any takers?

 

This hood fits the 06 Mustang GT and Hertz Revell kits.

2010 Mustang GT Convertible

15 June 2014 - 06:56 AM

This one is the SnapTite release of the '10 convertible with a twist. The hood was cut out and and the chassis and engine from the 2007 GT Hertz kit was transplanted to turn it into a full-detail kit. It's a bit of a custom, with a two-tone interior treatment. Painters Touch Apple Red with Testors Wet-Look Clear.

1997 Dodge Viper GTS

19 February 2014 - 02:43 PM

This one was built with the Revell Viper kit, with nothing too special going on. The kit overall went together well, aside from the hood where it meets the nose. There's a lil gap there, but all in all no complaints. I lost the decal sheet, so it's sans the racing stripes (probably wouldn't have used them anyway) and the paint is Model Master GTS Blue Pearl, which I have to thank MartinFan for reassuring me the quality and ease of use would be different than my experiences years ago with that line of paint.

Ferrari Testarossa

18 October 2013 - 09:01 AM

This one was a very annoying Revell Testarossa convertible. The fit of body to chassis was very finicky and didn't make sense to me. I got it the way it simply could work and left it at that. I bought the kit open and partially started/taken apart. Hopefully the hardtop will go better. Made it up like the hero car from the Sega game OutRun. Awaiting some decal paper so I can make the license plate. Apple Red with Future.
