Topics I've Started

Up for trade

24 January 2015 - 06:32 AM

I have some up for trade.

 

The Red Motorworks Mustang is missing all of the glass.

The wild breed body is painted.  No clear.  Complete kit.  Just needs a clearcoat and polish.  The paint on this is a very smooth Testors enamel paint job.  Yes it is dry LOL

The T-bird is sealed

The Ferrari us open but complete.

I'm looking for the following.  Would consider trading multiple or even all for certain ones if you have what I am looking for.

 

Porsche 911 kit.  Revell or any 911 kit with a full engine (just not the slant nose cabrio...)

Almost any other Revell Ferrari (except the 458 or Testarossa as I already have those)

Revell 240Z

1969 Olds 442

Mid 70s Corvettes 

65 or 66 Ford Galaxie

Chevy II

Mustangs.  Let me know what you have.

Monogram 57 Corvette

any interesting exotic/muscle/sports car


1969 Mustang Sportsroof

11 January 2015 - 05:52 AM

Well its been 2 and a half years since I sold my 69 Mustang so I think its time to build a scale version. Next maybe I will build a scale version of my current 2006. 

My car was like that really cute girl you knew in high school. Looked great on the outside. Very sexy and clean. Underneath, well she was not quite as put together... :) 

Mine had a 302 so I am going to be using the 289 out of the AMT 67 kit as it looks way more like a 302 than the 428 that comes in the 69 kit.

I am going to take my time because there are many bits and pieces needed to make this like mine. Sometimes I tend to rush through some details and I'm trying not to do that on this build.

Here is where I am. Pretty far but I keep forget in to take pics alone the way. Snapped most of these today.


This is the trunk.  When I do trunks I usually carve the detail out of sheet styrene, and glue it tothe trunk underside.  It's painstaking, and sometimes the shapes are not exactly symmetrical.  I decided to try something different by creating the shapes.  Its a reverse of what I usually do.  

Well...It will look ok but I have cince decided I like the other way better.  Here is the Mustang.

327A0D28-5740-4C2A-883C-964D39F86294-272

This is the "other way".  I think I like this better.  This is from a 66 Mustang I did a couple years back.  Too late now haha.  I don't think one will be that much more noticeable on the built model, but no more experiments HAHA

Sure would like some opinions on this one. Let me know what you think is more authentic looking.

Ferrari 250 California

This is the recent release of the Academy "European Classic Car" kit which is essentially the Italieri kit, and the same as was released as a Testors kit back in the 80s.  No Ferrari decals come in this kit but I had a photo etch fret and some Ferrari decals that I bought from Ebay (even though I only needed the nose decal). 

 

This is straight box stock meaning no extra details added except the Ferrari script and node decal.

 

The paint is Testors gloss Red Lacquer mixed with dept store lacquer thinner and and cleared with decanted Testors Wet Look clear.
