69 Cougar 428CJ convertible

11 August 2014 - 06:50 PM

Here is one that I have been wanting to build for some time now and had finally got around to doing it. This is a 69 Cougar 428CJ convertible. This started out as the 428CJ coupe kit. Not much was needed to turn this into a convertible. I cut the top off and used the boot from the 73 Cougar kit. That kit has a convertible boot even though it is only a hardtop kit. Leftover part from the 70 Cougar kit days. I changed out the front bumper for an older issue that had the bumper guards. Then added the trunk rack from the 72 Corvette kit.

Let me know what you think of this one?

55 Chevy Bel Air Pace Car

This is another one of my recently finished models. This one is pretty much built right from the box. It is Revells 55 Chevrolet Bel Air Pace Car convertible. This is a very nice kit that I really enjoyed building. I only had one issue with mine. The kit decals were bad and would not stick to the body. That was a first for me they had also yellowed badly and while it was not noticeable on the red panels, it was obvious on the white sections. I found some Fred Cady decals on eBay to finish it up.

Johan 69 Javelin SST

I thought I would take the time and show off one of my builds that I finished up earlier this year. I have not been posting much of my stuff or even taking photos of what I have been up to.

Here is one of my big restoration projects. This took a few years to gather everything up and get the project going. This is a Johan 69 Javelin SST that I built starting with two broken up bodies that I will post up also. But first here is the finished build. Any questions just ask and I will do my best to answer them.
