Topics I've Started

65 Corvair Corsa

18 November 2014 - 04:36 PM

Here is a built-up I resurrected, an original AMT '65 Corvair Corsa Hardtop, which I painted with Testors' Evening Orchid Lacquer, with a White interior, trimmed in Black.






Installing that Turbo 6 was a bear, but it had to be there.




The paint was a fight, but I had to stick with the color. I had never had one of these  when I was a kid, even though I liked Corvairs.


I have a '62 Ex-Glue-bomb on deck to be finished.





The glue-bombiness has been exorcised from this one, and it's ready for primer. I also have a '63 Convertible, a '64 Coupe, and a '60 Sedan, which has been cleaned up, and is ready for paint.



Here's one I have been working on a long time, a 55 Chevy

I started on this one when Revell first introduced this kit, and it is not done yet.




Excuse me, but this is the only picture I took of this one. It's just mocked up, and far from done, but it was one of those models I had sitting in the box, and I just have to finish it. I painted it with Model Car World '55 Chevy Coral, with a Testors' Charcoal Gray enamel. This is my favorite color combination for this car.


I have about 2-3 more hour's work on this one but it is close to being done.

1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS

20 October 2014 - 11:28 AM

I decided to do a couple of things different with my Revell Camaro. I decided to do it as a RS/SS, by scratchbuilding a grille surround to use with the Model Car Garage photoetch, which I am going to use, as well as scratchbuilding the parking and back up lamps used on the Rally Sport option..






I also upgraded the standard intereor to the "Deluxe" interior trim seats and door panels.





I plan to put it in primer this week, and if everythig goes as planned it will be painted this weekend.

New project, resurrecting a '60 Ford Wagon Glue-Bomb.

Here it is in all it's glory, an un-painted, gule-bombed Hubley '60 Ford Wagon.




The kit accessories were heavilly glued on.




The quarter panels did not escape the glue-burn.




Once I removed the accessories and cleaned up the glue-burn, It does not look too bad.




It cleaned up nicely, and now it has a "Ranch Wagon" vibe now.

Happy 50th Birthday Ford Mustang! Post a Mustang!
