So far I've only done one replica, for a friend of mine, but plan on replicating my '72 Charger and '80 Capri sometime soon. Here's mine, a '68 Plymouth Satellite, 318, vinyl top, added the side trim, and painted in a color that was as close of a match as I could get with a faded picture from 1974! Jay was extremely happy when he got his hands on this baby, he even shrunk himself and his son so they could get in the picture! :D

Here's a 1980s effort to model my first car. I took an AMT 57 Chevy and swapped roofs with an MPC 57 Gasser, then I used paint that came with the 1:1 car when I got it. The model sat unassembled in the attic for decades because I wasn't happy with the roof swap. Then, I glued it together after purchasing the modern Revell 57 Bel-Air, to sort of get a practice run:

And here is my modern-era build:

The mag wheels on the back came from a friend's Camaro that he was taking back to stock. I had a mishap when I tried to install Moon disks that left me with two leaky stock rims. The things we learn about cars in high school.... The black humps on the package shelf were some 1970s add-in speakers. Only one channel worked, which altered the sound of Sgt. Pepper.

Posted Image

I built mine with single exhaust. I wanted duals but could never afford it working part-time after school at a grocery store.

Posted Image

The "street machine" air cleaner that came with the kit looks almost exactly like the one on my otherwise stock 283. It came with a generator when I bought it, but a friend with a 56 4-door helped me convert it to alternator power.

Posted Image

Alas, I had to sell the 1:1 in 1988 for $1400. I have dreams I still own the car, and the model sits on a bookshelf in my office at work.

Started this one a good while back. And it still sits unfinished on the shelf. Maybe someday. The car it's to relicate was sold nearly 6 years ago.
Original 1970 issue MPC body and interior , with the newer AMT undercarriage added for greater detail. Engine is from the AMT 1971 Duster kit

I'm working on one of mine now; 78 Monte Carlo. And I've got another one in my stash but I have to get a body for it; 69 Dodge A100 series van. Unfortunately I'll never be able to build my current one without a LOT of scratchbuilding. No one makes a kit of a 2009 Malibu.

Very nice work on this second-generation Taurus, Tom. How did you convert the SHO kit, and how did you do those wheelcovers?

AMT 1969 GTX . I built this right ater it came out , back in the early 90's. It's supposed to replicate the actual car I had at the time.
This was my 1st attempt at an opening hinged decklid.
Scratchbuilt the underhood a/c system with parts from unknown kits back then. Exterior was painted the same shade of medium green metallic my old car was.Vinyl top was done with masking tape , then brush painted green.
