1974 Hornet Pro Mod Engine UPDATE 8/25/14

26 July 2014 - 12:33 PM

I have wanted to build this car for a VERY long time but had no luck finding a reasonably priced Hornet.

Thanks to some diligent searching and being in the right place at the right time I picked this bad boy up for an EXCELLENT price:

This body is NOT RESIN. It is an original JoHan Hornet funny car body! It took forever to strip that yellow paint off. but It's pretty clean now. I cut open the hood and hatch and the doors will be next.

I'll be using this as a fill in while I wrap up the Malibu. I need to order some parts before I can go much further anyway. Thanks for looking!!

 

 

 

 


1979 Malibu Pro Mod Finished! 8-1-14

08 July 2014 - 02:50 PM

Hobby Lobby had Revell "Jukebox" Fords on clearance. They had three on the shelf so I bought 'em all. This allowed me to start on a few more cars. I am really enjoying these drag builds as I love big motor cars with stock bodies.

 

This body is from Bandit resins. It is a little thick so I am not going to open the doors and I may put the trunk back on. This one will be white with black bumpers, grille and trim. Power will come from a big block Chevy with a turbo 400 transmission. I figured I would try something different with the power plant on this one.

 

I made the cowl induction hood using an El Camino Hood with a scoop off a Revell Nova.

 

As always thanks for looking!!

Volvo 850 Wagon UPDATED 5/18/14

13 May 2014 - 03:07 PM

I was digging through the stash looking for something unique for my next project. This Tamiya Volvo 850 Race car kit just screamed to be pro-modded. I already built one box stock and I couldn't stop thinking about how this would look with a blower sticking out of the hood. So here goes.......

 

This is a curbside kit so I had to cut the hood open first.

I'm concentrating on finishing the Falcon but this will be a fill in until the Ford is done......Thanks for looking!


Rockford Files '74 Pontiac Firebird UPDATED 4-28

11 April 2014 - 03:39 AM

I've always wanted to do a model of one of "Jims" Firebirds. The whitwalle tires were a real turn off for me though. Then I watched the pilot episode and the 'Bird is wearing Goodyear RWL tires. Now this was something I could build.

 

I had a mint unbuilt '74 in my stash so I got to work. I will be combining the MPC 'bird with a new tool '70 Camaro. I got the resin hood from an online vendor and had to narrow it very slightly.

I cut the engine bay out of the Camaro:

With a little sanding the Camaro floor/chassis drop right into the 'Bird.
