Matchbox 1/76 M19 Diamond transporter and Rodgers trailer

01 September 2013 - 06:19 PM

This is my first ever attempt at weathering a model.  The truck and trailer are painted faded Olive Drab to show a well-used vehicle. The Airfix M4 Sherman was painted a darker shad to indicate a vehicle fresh from overhaul. The mud, dried mud, dirt , and dust was Walmart acrylic craft paint thinned with alcohol and applied in varying thickness with several brushes. The M19 is bed-loaded with supplies for the unit receiving the refurbished tank. I had a lot of fun with this project.

Ed "Big Daddy" Roth's Rat Fink by Revell

I built one of these in '67 or '68 for my little brother. I bought this one from e-Bay for a stress relief project. It is built old-school with tube glue. I brush-painted it with whatever enamel paints that were lying around on the bench at the time. I like him. He is my modeling mascot now, as he sits where he can watch me butcher plastic at my bench. Adios, Larry.



AMT 1/25th '36 Ford coupe.

27 July 2013 - 03:17 PM





This is my third and latest 1/25th build. It is the AMT '36 Ford coupe that was built from an e-Bay glue-bomb.  It is the 25th anniversary(1981) release of the 1966 kit.  I brush-painted it Humbrol(U.K.) Gloss Lime Green. Interior is Primer White and acrylic yellow craft paint. The engine is the stock flat-head. It is OOB except the rear tires came from the "40 Ford Tudor sedan and the window glass is cut from a sheet of clear packaging material, as the kit glass was unusable. I am a 1/72 airplane builder and I don't own an airbrush. I had to prime the whole model with Plastikote White rattle-can primer after stripping off the original crappy paint.


Adios, Larry.

Here is the '36 with its stable-mates, the AMT '40 Tudor and the AMT '32 Vicky. All are brush-painted and built  98% OOB.








Hawk 1/32 slot car bodies turned in to car model kits.

15 June 2013 - 06:14 PM

This is the box-art from Hawk's slot car body turned 1/32 car kits. I built all four back during the heyday of the slot car craze. The Maserati 5000GT here is the only one that I have left. The glass(?) is Bare Metal Foil(the original stuff). It is the first time that I ever used it. The car is OOB except a blanking plate in the radiator and cowl openings, painted Flat Black and a back window replacing  the open hole in the back of the body. The paint is the original brush-painted Testors #1104 Dark Red, with no polish or clear coat. The tires and wheels are painted with Pactra Hot Rod Primer and Steel. All I have done is washed the car and polished it with a piece of T-shirt.
