packard > into hotrod > scale 1/16 - ish > bonneville weathered

20 July 2014 - 12:25 AM

hi all ,

this model rod is very special to me ! , this is the one that started my modelbuilding "career"

i got this packard for free a few years back , new in the box bit it was a bit damaged ...

i started to play around with this die-cast and turned it into a hotrod , i didnt have any tools , paint or ... never build models when i got this packard ...

after this packard i got the modelbuild fever and after bying a nother die-cast (bug) and playing around with that i started to find awsome 1/24 and 1/25 builds online and got my first plastic kit :)

this was the packard when i got it

i build a hotrod out of the packard .. then changed it later on and ordered a 1/18 blown engine ...
i took a 1/16 ferrari v8 and merged the parts with the other engine

last week i took the rod out of storage and gave it some powders and played around with it

this morning i figured why not make it like its been on the salt flats ...

so i put it on the bench and this was the result > (used white pigment powder)

just thought i'd share it here .. again its a very old build and changed 2 times , when i was just starting building .. beside the weathering i dont want to upgrade anything because this is the one that started it all :)

in the future and with a lote more learnt since this rod i want to start a 1/8 hotrod build

FORD BRONCO revell , slammed on white walls and chrome steelies

15 April 2014 - 12:02 AM

hey all , starting on this revell ford bronco ..

Now i got this kit in a shoebox with the build description , it supposed to be a kit of the bronco with a trailer and powerboat , i only have the bronco and not the trailer and boat ..
the plastic has become yellow , like from age ?? i dont know the kit is from 1991 going from the all yellowed build description.
The kit is fairly simple to put together but not real bad in detail

what i got in a shoebox (got this from a guy who stopped with building due to health issues )

the grille is cool its already open .. the headlights suck they are one piece and no glass in the kit for those .. so maybe open them up and make reflectors and cust glass to put in would be cool

the body , i hate the shape of the wheel wells , now i cant really find good pictures of this kit or the boxart , i did find one other kit and those flares supposed to resemble / be rubber ?
anyway my plan is to cut open the wheel wells and get some cool wheels on it and make it a bit rough looking ..
i ven think changing the body like where the hardtop on the bed sits and make that whole with the body so its one piece could be cool ..not sure yet
the roof window will be closed up i dont like that really .. overal it needs to becomea bit smoother overall , bit custom

the tails are also a cast so i will make some taillight myself ..

69 dodge charger

08 April 2014 - 11:17 PM

this is my version of the 69 dodge charger , kind of restomod style .. but not to modern ..

insted of the chrome bumpers i incorporated the front and rear splash pan in the body like re worked them and made the corners flow into the body

dropped it down on its belly , airride style , some may hate it but i kind of liked the idea and look :)

'69 dodge charger R/T _ clear coat and 3d rt logos

09 March 2014 - 06:01 AM

started on a revell / monogram 1969 dodge charger r/t ..

the plan is to do it a bit like the restomods .. i will use the kit engine and leave that stock ..
but the idea is to build it as close to stock body wise but change a few things so it will have that more modern feel without anything sticking out

1888452_429932520472997_1699386937_n.jpg

weird build plan it looks like they want you to put the taillights against the back but imo they need to sit like this from behind ..

1507584_429934107139505_28053388_n.jpg

first i flattened the whole bottom of the rear bumper so the bottom line is straight

10006203_429934103806172_18598137_n.jpg

then sanded of the chrome .. not bothered to dechrome because i will sand a lot of material of the rear bumper anyway and reshape it

1939991_429934113806171_1279623315_n.jpg

because i wanted flush seems and the seem below the bumper is very wide on a real dodge i placed it against the bottom .. that way the recess for the lisense plate on the bumper met up with the ongoing recess in the bottom splash pan ...

1800255_429934143806168_520927293_n.jpg

the made it all flat so the bumper was flush with the splash pan and didnt stick out the sides , platicwelded some styrene on the top
