'79 Ford Bronco

30 June 2015 - 07:47 AM

Just rolled (not literally LOL) this one off the bench.  It's the Model King repop built basically box stock.  I went with the deluxe two-tone paint scheme and added the necessary chrome trim for it.  For colors, I was inspired by one in an old ad Ford ran when the full size Bronco came out in 1978.  Colors are Duplicolor Bright Red & Super White, while the interior was treated to Rustoleum Regal Red.  I noticed after taking the pics I should add some black wash to the vents on the cowl.  Other than a few finicky assembly steps, and vague instructions, it was a fun and enjoyable build and looks good when finished.

Revell 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona

07 April 2015 - 08:51 AM

Here's my third one off the bench this year, finishing it this morning.  The kit went together very well, though the radiator core support is a very tight squeeze during final assembly and took some finessing. I moved the rear axle forward slightly to center up the tires in the wheelwells.  The tires are AMT pad-printed units, and the Torque Thrusts are from the Revell '68 Mustang GT. Paint is Duplicolor Universal Black polished out with MCW Buff-EZ and Final Finish, with no clearcoat. I used Duplicolor GM Orange-Red Engine enamel over a black basecoat for the spoiler for a pretty close match to the decal stripe.  I had put the Charger script decals on the roof and tail light panel, but removed them as they had silvered pretty bad and looked like garbage. The air cleaner decal was a real pain as well, and didn't come out the best, but it's there.  Now to figure out what to build next......

79 Camaro Z/28

24 February 2015 - 11:18 AM

I finished this one up last week, my second completion of 2015.  It's the Revell Streetburner release, a pretty basic kit but builds into a good looking shelfer.  It's not my best build, but I'm happy with it.  I'm not a big fan of t-tops on these Camaro's (but I do like them on the Firebirds, don't ask me why I don't know lol  :blink:) so I broke out the spot putty and got to work filling in the seams. Colors are Model Master Nassau Blue Met. with Duplicolor Light Blue Metallic for the interior.  Tire lettering is Fireball Modelworks decals, and I used some aluminum tubing for the exhaust tips. I just realized I forgot to get some silver paint onto the lugnuts, so I'll address that tonight.  Thanks for looking and any comments good or bad.

Dick Landy '68 Dart GTS

03 January 2015 - 02:54 PM

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.
