Topics I've Started

Deuce Sedan

Yesterday, 10:06 AM

This was the Revell first issue of the kit, finished about 4 years ago.  It's box-stock except for a couple of decals and the column-mounted shifter.  I tried painting an eyeball on that.  And, I added a basic tach to the firewall with a Wizard's O and a decal, and the front plate is from the "Green Hornet" kit.  Weathering was done with some washes, a bit of real rust and some genuine Long Island dirt (I have a good supply of that!)  Dullcote protects everything from fingerprints.  Your comments are welcome. 











Johan 67 Fury

I'm looking for a Johan '67 Fury.  A full, unbuilt, complete kit would be really nice but I would definitely consider a complete (no parts missing), intact (no parts broken) built-up; maybe even a "glue bomb".  Thanks .

Thirty-nine Ford

Yep, it's an AMT '39 Ford, built just about box stock and completed about... 8(?) years ago.  I don't remember if the tach on the dash came with the kit and I know the license plate frame didn't- it's an NNL East item.  I didn't even drill out the exhaust or the intakes.  I used Testors Olive Drab with Dullcote to protect it from fingerprints.  Your comments are welcome.











Semi-homemade trailer and wagon

25 June 2014 - 09:45 AM

With apologies to Sandra Lee, the trailer is semi-homemade.  I used the bed from the Lindberg '34 Ford pickup and fabricated a frame from Evergreen square styrene stock.  I don't remember if the springs and axle are from my parts box or fabricated.  The taillight brackets were fabricated from aluminum (Coke can material); they were left unpainted because I wanted them that way.  The simple wiring harness was also fab'd from wire and aluminum tubing.  Wheels and old Firestones are from my parts box and the license plate was computer-generated.  The trailer was brush-painted one of Testors FS greens, the bed is a forgotten shade of brown and light weathering was applied.  Stuff in the trailer is from my parts box.


The wagon is a resin repop of the original item from the Orange Blossom Special kit.  The handle and front wheels are posable and the wheels are from a Hot Wheels pickup.  Decals are from my stash. 











Super Stock Dodges

16 June 2014 - 10:33 AM

A couple of older builds based on the Polar Lights pre-painted kits.  They were built a few years apart.  I replaced the kits' 6-cylinder distributor in each with parts box parts, added some flock, co-ordinating paint and BMF to the interiors and used dot matrix printer pins for antennas.  The red car has some BMF for the exterior trim and steelies from my parts box.  The exhaust tips on the black car are styrene tubing.  Decals are from my parts box, the peace sign is a fingernail applique and the Nixon bumper sticker is a photo-reduced item (I still have the original!).  As usual, comments and critiques are welcome.  Thanks for looking.
