E-Code '57

Today, 01:37 PM

Built this '57 Custom Tudor as a factory E-Code car. 

Nice sleeper color, gunmetal gray, and just a little stance adjustment (read it as a little bit lowered)

 

Hope you guys like it

While the paint dries.

25 May 2015 - 02:40 PM

What to do while the paint dries...

I put together the engines I'm not using!!

I do so in the same way I build the entire cars: Don't worry about adding extra stuff on most cases, just use the parts supplied. Only add some spark plug wires (not always) and a eventual fuel line (even more rare).

 

Here are some of them:

 

Chevy six from the AMT Fleetline kit:

1948 Ford corner (Testors IMC) Post 'em if you got 'em!

04 May 2015 - 07:56 PM

I'm starting this post just out of frustration. 

When I was building mine '48, I only found a couple built on google, and the pictures were not that good. 

So, if you have one built, please post some pictures. I refuse to believe there's only about three or four around!??

So, post 'em if you got 'em!!!

 

This one is mine. Three months and about a few white hairs more after I started it I was able to call it good, or so so.

1948 Ford Super Deluxe Coupe.

02 May 2015 - 09:02 AM

I'm working on this Testors '48 Ford for the past three months. The kind of on and off work, as every single part needed to be massaged in some way to fit so so. At this point I'm giving up and calling it good. 

A little taste of what happened during the build:

I bought the kit about three years ago, on evilbay. It was already old, came opened, but I made an inventory and found it to be complete. 

Well, as I started the build, parts started disappearing. The radiator hoses vanished. Had to make new ones from sprue. The original tires melted inside the box. That's right, melted. The vinyl turned into a gelly gunk. I was disappointed at least, as I wanted to use the most of the original kit's parts as possible, and the tires are the kind of parts that appear a lot. I was going to use AMT tires, but a friend of mine had a set of the original Testors tires from a convertible he hot rodded. 

Another part that vanished was the pair of taillight lenses. Had to make new ones with 10 minute epoxy painted with Tamiya acrylic transparent red. 

The last part to turn unusable was the chrome mylar adhesive trim that came with the kit. To remedy that, I made trim out of sheet styrene, glued it to the body, and foiled it. 

By the way, all foil is candy wrap foil, and foil leave adhesive. 

The paint is automotive synthetic enamel. 

Interior, frame and engine were all painted with Model Master acrylics. 

 

Well, let's stop talking and start showing some pictures. 

Here is the finished thing, and I only finished it because I happen to REALLY love Fords.

1937 Ford.

24 April 2015 - 09:45 AM

Have this one for a long time. Accompanied me in two moves and managed to stay in one piece. It was inside his box, and is dusty anyway. How about that for age? Have to clean it up... The kit is Revell, and was built all box stock.
