' 64 Dodge Polara

19 April 2015 - 08:46 AM

This is the Jo-han Ramchargers kit, but without the dual scoop manifold or the drag headers. I'm using the kit wheels and tires, but I might slip the dog dish caps from the Lindberg ' 64 kit on those wheels. Not sure, yet. I was able to fit the Lindberg front bumper, with a little bit of minor cutting. The paint is Duplicolor medium maui blue, inside and out, but I'm doing a tri-tone interior. Fun kit! :)

1965 Ford Galaxie 500 XL Outdoor Pics!

15 March 2015 - 02:42 AM

So, here it is finally completed after a long break. Totally box stock except for inside/outside mirrors, licence plates/frames, and a strip of styrene to give the illusion that something actually holds up the alternator. Not sure why I needed to add that, since there aren't even any hoses. Still, a nice addition to the Galaxie collection, which now numbers five. I want to do one of each between 1959 - 1970, so I'm one build closer. ;)

1975 Dodge Dart Sport

27 January 2015 - 08:08 AM

First build of this year, though I wish I'd picked a better kit. But, at least I have another Mopar in my collection (that's two now!). Totally box stock, except for the side mirror.

1976 Cadillac Coupe de Ville

14 August 2014 - 06:53 AM

I had only just found out that a co-worker of mine owned this vehicle, and some of the history behind it, when Modelhaus a short time later released their kit of the same car. The mileage you see is original, 00095. To make a long story short, this car was driven on the street exactly once, the day it was purchased. It's been garaged it's entire life, and even though I haven't gotten around to snagging the kit yet, I fully intend to.

I did manage to get my friend to let me photograph it, last spring. A car this original, as in totally original, is for certain an excellent source of reference for someone restoring one, or for builders. Here's a link to the Photobucket album.

' 65 Galaxie

12 August 2014 - 08:21 AM

I decided to do another Galaxie, and since I wanted to do a ' 65 to replicate the car of a fella I used to work with, I figured there's no time like the present. His car was not an XL, but it was gold with a black vinyl roof. So even though I'm doing this box stock, I'm going to use the same color scheme. Here's the body with the paint and clear on it, as well as the vinyl roof, added today.

More to come! :rolleyes:
