Topics I've Started

Dick Landy '68 Dart GTS

I finished this one earlier today.  It's the Revell kit with added wiring under the hood.  The decals were a royal pain to get settled down decently (particularly the blue ones).  Speaking of decals, the Goodyear logos for the fenders were not included on the sheet, so I found some in my parts box and added them (along with the tire lettering).  Aside from the decaling it was an enjoyable build.

Had a lot of fun building this one.  It's the Model King/AMT Comet bashed with the drivetrain & chassis from a Revell Thunderbolt.  MCW resin hood, Modelhaus Howard Competition mags, Slixx decals. Raised the suspension for a more accurate stance. Parts box front tires (could be a little narrower but I'm ok with 'em) and created just enough room for the rear slicks to tuck into the fenders without rubbing.  Interior wise all I added was a clutch pedal, shifter, and tach.  For the rear quarter windows I trimmed down the Thunderbolt units. The 427 was treated to coil & ignition wires, and a set of stamped "Mercury" valve covers from a AMT '66 Parklane. I was kinda irked that I had forgotten to remove the chrome caps on the front fenders, but I'll live with it.  She's not 100%, but close enough for me.   I wanted to take some outdoor pics, but didn't want to take it out into the 15 degrees and wind so I made do with some pics by a living room window, along with a couple others that came out kinda dark.  Not sure why, but the red areas on the car look kinda blotchy (at least on my computer) and don't know why.  Tried uploading them twice to photobucket with the same results both times. The actual pics look clear and just fine, so who knows?......... :wacko:













a few more shortly....

Monogram 1/48 B-58 Hustler

I don't think I've ever posted this build before.  I was doing some cleaning, and afterwards decided to take this bird outside for a few pics.  It is not a recent build however, but was built back in the summer of 1996.  I was fresh out of high school and my dad was battling cancer.  He was sick enough to the point where he was unable to build his models anymore and had asked me if I would build the B-58 for him. I gladly obliged, and dug it out of his stash.  I did the best I could at the time (I was 18) and got it done in a couple months.  He was happy with how it turned out and proud of the work I did, which made me feel good in return. He ended up passing away that October, so I was extremely happy that he got to see it finished, as it was one of his favorite birds of all-time, as it is mine, too.  As for the build it is box stock, and believe all the paint is Testors.  It has withstood the test of time pretty well, only having to reattach a few bits that had broken off.  I wouldn't mind finding another one of these to build some day, even though it's size takes up a lot of acreage. Anyways, on to the pics....













1999 Mustang Cobra

It's been a busy year cutting into my building time, but here is my 3rd completed model of the year. It's the original issue Revell/Monogram kit, built straight out of the box.  Duplicolor Cardinal Red was sprayed onto the body, then polished out. The decals were shot so there's no underhood markings but was no biggie to me.  I left off the running horse in the grille as it had broke when I tried removing it from the tree. No big issues in building this one, only the front suspension gave a lil fuss. After taking the pics, I see I overlooked a couple small items I'll address shortly, namely blacking out the face of the scoop on the rear fenders. It doesn't really show up in the pics, but I did paint the rear side marker lights. I may give them another coat of paint to make them pop out a little more.  Enough with my rambling, on to the pics......
