My older builds
Posted 28 September 2010 - 06:41 AM
My first model ever was '60 Ford Starliner. I built it stock and basis was AMT's kit. That kit was great, and I'll buy it again some day... Car is painted by brush and 'cause it's my first model ever, there are no details all around. I built this in age of six, so it's seven years ago.
My second model was '59 Fairlane, but I have only one picture from it, I post it later. But my third model was '58 Plymouth Belvedere, it's built from AMT kit, if I remember correctly. It's also painted by brush and wow, two tone colour on it... No details added to this one... It was great kit too!

I thaught, it was time to build something else... So I built Revell '71 Plymouth GTX. I used decals from '57 Fairlane kit, 9'' slicks are from Fairlane kit and I raised that rearend a bit. Now it looks like mix of NASCAR and Drag Race car... But I was happy with it. It's paited with a brush...
More comes tomorrow, comments and questions welcome, and I try to answer. But now, good night!

And after Malibu was built, I bought other new release from old Monogram's kit... This time it was '55 Chevy Gasser, wich was ''BadMan'' originally... This is PAINTED BY SPRAY CAN!!! So, it's my first model painted with spray can and it went quite well. This kit is not so good, because engine is too small, not meaning cubic inches. I mean that it's looking way too small on there... Chassis was pretty good and that front axle system looks pretty good so now I bought BadMan's front axle to '57 Nomad, wich will be finished soon. This one is not one of my best ones, but I like the style of this build.
And yes, it's matt black.
Scoop is from '66 Malibu...
After Bel Air I build '32 Ford with 302'' and blower but it felt to floor and now I'm working it again.

After this Chevelle I built '72 Nova Pro Stock but I have to go and take pictures from it later, so I'll post it later...
Then I built '64 Pontiac GTO. It's Revell's kit and that kit is pretty good too... It has 455'' Big Block and Hillborn fuel injection system is from '57 Fairlane... Interior is built stock and this is pretty simple model, don't mean the kit! Wheels and tires are looking good, I think. Painted by spray gun and it has few coats of clear on it. I'm pretty happy with this model, all body trim is painted by Revell Enamel colours...
More comes tomorrow, comments and questions are very welcome!

After '64 GTO, I built '71 Plymouth Duster FC. It's the "Cop Out Duster" from Revell, originally from Monogram. I left Police lights and decals away from it, there is now detailing parts used, painted by spray can but it went quite wrong...

After Vega, I built '55 Ford pickup for a gasser style, but now years later, front suspension has broke down a bit and not frontend is much lower than it was. But this is NOT a "Basic Farmtruck", because under the hood, there is 351'' Cobra Jet with Blower. This kit had originally Vortech Supercharger, but it was too modern. Wheels and tires were looking funny= low profile tires with big wheels so I changed them. It's quite fast build. No details, painted with spraycan.
More on the next post... It comes tomorrow.

After Ford Pickup, I bought very interesting kit from '63 Chevrolet Chevy II. It's AMT's Altered wheelbase kit, wich is not so good. There are no vinyl tires, as usual they must be painted! Chassis piece is too short, I mean there leaves a big hole to the back... Engine is a little simple, there are no details at all. Interior is quite good, there comes awesome looking bucket seats and so on. Body looks cool and some day I buy this again and built it to '66 Nova's chassis wich is much better than this. It's painted by spray can and there are no detail parts used...
After AWB racer I built '71 Buick GSX. It's "Revell Muscle" kit and that kit is very good. There is an option: You can build a stock version or street machine version with Tunnel Ram- manifold. I built it like street machine, there are original wheels and tires, hole on the hood and there comes manifold, carburetors and air cleaners. It's painted by spray can. Decals are in quite bad shape right now, after many years...
Something went wrong with the clear...

After '57 Vette, I built '78 Pontiac Firebird. It's Revell kit. Quite good quality, but some fit issues, not too bad. Painted with spray can, engine is 455" but I did not put any wires, hoses etc for it, this kit is also built box stock. Well, maybe I added some decals but otherwise... Great kit, car is nice and there are lots of useful parts in the kit. I'm happy, how this one came out, it looks good to me like how it is right now.
