Topics I've Started

68 Dart/Pro Touring

19 August 2013 - 07:46 AM

Hello all, here is my latest build, mostly out of the box, just lowered quite a bit and gave it some Pegasus aluminum sleeves with the rims from the 09 Challenger.

Engine is stock but I added the air cleaner from the Challenger as well.

 

Let me know what you think.

Update: the air cleaner is actually from the Revell 70 Challenger kit, my bad.

Slammed 09 Silverado

29 March 2013 - 07:47 PM

Hello everyone, I thought I would share my latest creation.

This is a 09 Chevy Silverado just about laying frame.

Only a curbside, no engine or chassis detail.

 

This started out as a John Deer toy found in the local farm supply store.

Modified quite a bit as the toy did not have much for detail.

It's about 1/16 scale I guess, not sure exactly.

 

Modifications:

Body sectioned out from a crew cab to a "club cab I guess".

Bed mostly removed, crued "raised" engine compartment removed.

Steering through the steering wheel retained.

Headlight sections extended back, bumper extended rearward.

 

Scratch built items:

Wheels

Headlight buckets and glass

Taillight buckets and glass

Tow hooks

Bed cover

Mirrors (3)

Wipers

Satellite antenna

 

Tires are modified RC car items

 

Krylon paint, clear, rubbed out and waxed

 

Grill, headlight/taillight buckets, mirrors painted with Alclad, my first time using and I'm pretty satisfied with it.

 

Let me know what you all think of it..

Pro Touring El Camino

16 December 2012 - 06:22 PM

Hello everyone, here is my latest project I thought I would share.
 
This started out for me as an ebay glue bomb, I parted out a Monogram 2002 Camaro for most of the parts, rear and front suspension including the front sub frame piece, engine, gas tank and side mirrors.
 
Seats from a Nissan 300, wheels and tires from a Skyline r35.
 
I scratch built a twin intake system and used solder for the tubes, with resin air filters.
 
Aluminum tube driveshaft, mufflers and tips, solder exhaust, home made roll bars, shifter and steering wheel from a 69 Vette, scratched gauges from aluminum tube and printed out faces, scratch built racing belts.
 
Bed top is home made.
 
Brake rotors are scratch built with 99 Vette calipers.
 
I made the front bumper from scratch as well after destroying the original by trying to shorten it with a flame..
 
Paint is Wal mart brand black with Krylon clear.
 
 
Comments and critiques are welcome.
 
Steve
