Topics I've Started

Morgan 4/4

19 November 2014 - 01:50 PM

I guess I'm in a British car mood lately. Here's the Tamiya Morgan 4/4








Straight out of the box, paint is just Testors Model Master Clear Gloss over the kit plastic.

James Hunt Mini Cooper

15 November 2014 - 01:09 PM

It's been quite a while since I've built anything. This past season was just about the busiest in my career with 48 race days from April to October. Seems I was on the road just about every weekend.


Anyway, this is the James Hunt Mini from the movie "Rush". I'm sure some of you will notice a few minor details that aren't quite correct. It does lack the auxiliary driving lights because I haven't found anything suitable yet, and then there's the . . . well okay, it's really just the Tamiya kit built straight out of the box with some roundel decals on the doors. But hey, it got me back in the mood to build again and it was fun and easy.


It's built form the Tamiya kit, as I mentioned, the paint is Testors Ford Engine Blue and Classic White. The interior is flat blue and gray. The decals are from an old Fred Cady GT-350 Mustang sheet. I made the registration number plates on the computer.


I certainly wasn't going for contest quality, just having a little fun!

Building a Skeeter!

25 March 2014 - 11:49 AM

Started working on this today:




It's called a "skeeter", sort of a poor mans super modified. And in fact that's what I'm basing the chassis on, the old Monogram Don Edmunds Super Modified. I got the resin body years ago.




Like I said, the chassis is mostly from the old Monogram kit. I moved the roll cage rearward a little bit and made the front and rear bumpers, and side nerf bars from Evergreen .080" rod.


The wing is also made from scratch using Evergreen .010" sheet.


Instead of the kit fuel injection I think this engine will have triple carburetors to more fit the theme of lower budget racer.


What do y'all think?

Revell '57 Ford

20 March 2014 - 07:57 AM

Just finished this Revell '57 Ford.




Mostly stock except for the wheels and tires which came from a Monogram '65 Mustang GT-350 kit.




Paint is Testors Graphite Gray Metallic and Classic Black over Gray primer.


And what about the Holman-Moody logo on the front fender?


Oh, that's for the engine:




The Holman-Moody Ford 429 NASCAR engine came from a Polar Lights Torino kit.
