62 Dart rebuild

26 March 2015 - 01:01 PM

I've been trying to post this model for several days, and the post always disappears. If this works, I'll add details later.

Here's my old Jo-Han 62 Dodge Dart made into a base 2 door sedan pro street-type car.

What is the Chrysler engine from AMT 49 Mercury?

12 March 2015 - 02:58 PM

Does anyone know which Chrysler engine is included in the old AMT 49 Mercury kit? I have the engine from a very old kit, but I'm not savvy enough to identify it. It has a cross ram manifold with 2 carbs sitting diagonally. The kit instructions just call it a "ram induction engine." I plan to use it in an old  Jo-Han 62 Dart I'm making into a pro street type of model. It looks like a Max Wedge 426, but I'm not sure if is. Thanks,



Revell 57 Chevy Bel Air Snap-Tite

Hey, guys, here's my first build of 2015 - a Revell Snap-Tite 57 Chevy. It was on sale at Michael's, so I bought it. It's an OOB build, painted with Testors gloss black with a tan and orange interior. Foiling took longer than painting and building! The seat cushion stickers were black, but I wanted orange, so I sprayed them orange, then applied them. It worked! It's not my best build, but it was quick and fun! I plan to use it on my car show diorama, since just about every car show has a 57 Chevy in it! The photos could be better, too. Comments welcome!


Sam's class of 2014

29 December 2014 - 09:19 AM

Here are my seven builds for 2014. Last year I did 17. Lots of other things going on this year. There is an army Jeep, a 58 Edsel prepainted kit, a 59 Ford Skyliner (tough build), a 49 Merc wagon, a 60 Ranchero with a resin six engine, and a Willys COE car hauler with a Kurtis midget racer. No super detailing or super shiny paint, just basic models that I liked building. I hope you guys liked them too! 

41 Willys car hauler w/Kurtis midget racer

Hey guys, here are my final builds for 2014: a 41 Willys COE car hauler and a Kurtis midget. The truck is a resin body mounted on a 39 Chevy frame. The bed is sheet styrene and uses the 39 Chevy fenders and the floor of the trailer that comes with the midget kit. It tilts and the floor slides back for loading and unloading. The rear of the bed is an ancient custom tailgate from the parts box with 60 T-Bird taillights. I'll add a license plate soon. Wheels are from the Revell 58 Impala kit, bumper is 40 Ford, parts box mirrors, and the grille is a cut down 49 Merc. The truck was a fun project, and not too hard to make. The midget is a nice kit, but has too many tiny, fiddly parts for my 65 year old eyes! Comments welcome!
