Topics I've Started

Rambler, Jeep, AMC straight 6.

25 May 2012 - 10:11 AM

Hi guys!

There are some kits that have AMC, Rambler, Jeep straight sixes. I'd like too replicate a '70s Jeep 258 cui for a Cherokee Chief project I've started.
Now, is there a resinversion out there? Or do I have too source one from a Pacer, '65 American, or something else in styrene?

Air-Trax '62 Opel Rekord Coupe

Hi!

Just got this picture from Finland.

I don't know which donor that would be the best at the moment, but sees there are missing tires, springs, kingpins, and rear axel. Price will be about 100 euros if compared to theire other kits with equal details. Air-Trax is a company in evolvment. The more practice in the technics of casting, the better they will be doing so. With this I mean some of theire older castings need more work then some of theire newer.
This Opel is mastered by Juha Airio, and I got the picture from him. If interest in theire models, I'm willing to help. No extra charges.

I'm not sure which gasser class it would be put into, probably better of as Brackett. Still inspiration is from the good old gassers.

Lime green, and Bare Metal.
This is where it stays today, and have been during a building drought with hardly any models finished. But I got inspired by Gothic Kustomz Tilted Glasshouse , so this will be found, and finished.

Mack AC COE

The Monogram AC must be one of the best modelkits out there. Those that have yet too build one, have something too look forward to.
This was my first try on the kit, but off course, I did it non stock. I moved the cabin all the way up front, on top of the engine, and in front of the radiator. Look closely, and You will see that I've used most of the kits hood, just flattened it, and mounted it verically. I scratched a new ring arround the M logo, as I think that was the weakest point in the kit. Carveing the M out was a bit tidius, but it was worth it.
I scratched the flatbed from styrene, using only some brasstubing as supports for the long stacks.
I imagined this truck at a cotton farm, or sugarcane farm, or something simular.
