Topics I've Started

1964 Chevy P/U

28 July 2014 - 11:37 AM

Hey guys finished this one up the other day.

A Revell 1964 Chevy pickup fleetside, painted with Boyd's Cheezoom Teal Pearl

decanted and cleared with Model Master Ultra Gloss decanted then airbrushed

 3 coats of each, wet sanded and polished.

I did a little kit bashing on this one used the seats, console, steering wheel, engine

from the AMT 1967 Chevelle pro street kit ( the green max rat kit ) the body got messed 

up somehow so I have been robbing parts from it

The interior is done in all craft acrylic paints except for the dash.

The bed is also done with craft acrylic paint and I made some washes from the same

paints just used a couple different shades of brown the grain was done with a

mechanicle pencil then it was cleared with Ceramcoat acrylic semi-gloss urethane,

then BMF was applied.

Engine is a Chevy 427, used Parts by Parks distributor and coil the headers were

completely disassembled and cut reshaped put back together to make shorty headers

to drop straight down because they would not work in their original form  you can

see on the underneath pic

I lowered the truck just enough to give it the old hot rod look, buy removing the

front spindles and repositioning then and I shaved the rear spring disks to match.

baby moons are from Parts by Parks.  

 

Thanks for looking   :) 


SNAKE BIT

30 May 2014 - 11:23 AM

Well fellas, here is the 4th installment of my Fairlane series, a little bit different from the rest a Resto Mod this time.

 

Paint is Testors orange pearl decanted mixed 1/2 with Boyds sunburst decanted and sprayed with my airbrush, Model Master ultra gloss clear wet sanded and polished with Novis, interior is all done with craft acrylics except the dash and cleared with an acrylic semi gloss clear. Also I learned a little trick from Chris Chapman on the headliner, taking a styrafoam plate and cut out the headliner, paint and glue in, it works great.

 

Suspension, running gear and engine come from the Revell 2007 Ford Shelby GT500 as did the cobra emblems and the dash gauges, steering wheel center, front SVT tag and brake rotors and calipers.

 

Wheels and tires came from a Revell 69 Camaro kit.  Mirrors, steering wheel, shifter, rear tag all came from my parts box and of course plenty of BMF

 

As always guys Thanks for looking and all comments WELCOME!!   

 

ENJOY!!   B) 


Sad News: Another LHS closing

25 April 2014 - 03:31 PM

I stopped by my local hobby shop today to pick up some paint and was informed by the owner that they were calling it quits after 26 years.   :(    He said he and his wife were ready to retire which I don't blame them one bit, as they said they felt it was time. They have tried to sell it to someone else and have had two or three people interested but just can't work out a deal, even went through a broker but no bites, so everything in the store is 40% off until the end of next month which is when they plan on shutting it down. Yes I bought a kit and a bottle of Alcad chrome and a can of testors wet look clear for $20 and some change a real good deal I thought.

 

It is still sad that so many LHS are closing, and this one is not because he didn't have the business, so I guess I will have to buy more stuff online now as the next closest hobby shop is about 25 miles and this one is only 5 blocks from the house. So until they close I am going to take advantage of the 40% off everything and try to stock up on some stuff and I don't have to have a one item 40% coupon either!  :)
