Topics I've Started

Revell 2013 Mustang Boss 302

31 March 2014 - 04:31 PM

Just got a few of these in the mail today, couldn't wait had to start on one.  I removed the few mold lines that there were, the body was really nice, not much work needed.  I was going to go with "gotta have it green" but decided to just use Tamiya Lime Candy instead.  I will be building it like the boxart using the decals. I will be lowering it a bit, and replacing the tires for sure.

Quick build MPC " Milk Trike"

02 February 2014 - 11:08 PM

While waiting on odds and ends to dry, and parts to come in for my `Cuda replica build; I decided to start a quick project, that I can finish in a fairly timely manner. I picked up a set of these Re-issue MPC trikes a few days ago, and decided that the Milk Trike would be a good subject for a fairly quick build.

The body comes in 2 separate parts, so I started by putting them together, and getting rid of the seams.

Not overly impressed with the kit tires, so I dug through the stash and found a nice set of meaty Mickey Thompsons.... much better!

I will update as I progress. Any input/critisisms are welcomed and much appretiated.


1970 Hemi Cuda Replica Build

09 January 2014 - 10:48 AM

During discussion in the Cuda Review thread, Photos of this car were posted, and I immediately fell in love with it. I started gathering parts, and decided that I must use Fireball Modelworks 295/50/15 tires. I got a set of deep/shallow Scenes Unlimited resin Mopar steelies, and a set of Missing Link resin hubcaps.

Problem now, is that the Scenes Unlimited Mopar steelies are 1;25, while the tires are 1:24  and I believe the steelies are also 14" , so first task was finding some scrap wheels, and cutting the Barrel to fit the steelies. Wheels will be all black with chrome hubcaps, pay no attention to the chrome lips. The wheels still require allot of work, but you se the basic concept.

1990 Mustang "Street Machine"

06 January 2014 - 11:10 PM

Here is my first project of the new year.  Will be slow going, as I work out of town for weeks at a time, thus have minimal time to build. I am using the Mike Schnur Mastered/ Greg Wann  Beautifully cast, correct body and a resin cowl from Rdsxfan2 on ebay. I will also be using a set of Joseph ( Fireball Modelworks) 295/50/15s out back.  A while back I had send some random parts out for chrome, the intake for a 2006 Mustang being one..... I will be using the engine/trans from that never mustang for this build.
