Va.Beach model club

09 April 2014 - 06:00 AM

If you live in the Va. Beach, Va. area and you're interested in a model car club, we're the club for you.

We are TAMS (Tidewater Automotive Modelers Society). 

Our club was founded in 1990.   We meet the second Sunday of each month at 2:00pm at Hobbytown USA located at 4000 Va.Beach Blvd. in the Loehmans Plaza shopping center just behind the Applebee's resturaunt.

 

 

We have no monthly dues and take part in many of the area car shows and contests as well as hosting or own model car contest each October.

 

We are a low key club and all we ask is that you have fun and enjoy model cars.

 

If interested check us out on our website: www.tamsgang.weebly.com.

 

Our next meeting is this Sunday April 13th at 2:00 pm.     Bring any finished models or projects for our show & tell session, and have fun.

 

Look forward to seeing you there.

Chrysler kit cars

06 November 2013 - 02:23 AM

Looking for some color pictures of the Chrysler kit cars from the mid 1970's.  In particular Jim Cushmans Plymouth Duster.  I've done the google search, but cannot see the color of the interior.

Thanks, Vernon


Revell/Foose '67 Dodge Charger

23 September 2013 - 01:22 AM

First of all, no pictures yet.   I'm an old dog trying to learn how to be hi-tech.   

With that behind us,  The Foose Charger is out and in my opinion is well worth the $25.00 I spent on it.

  The only down fall is the car sits at stock height.   I played around with mine over the weekend and found by sanding the inside of the front inner wheel well of the body (upper portion)(almost paper thin) as well as a little from the inside of the front fender, you can get the tires to fit up inside the body.  Of course now you have to modify the front suspension to get the front end down.  You may want to drop the rear just a little.

 

In addition to already excellent 1967 Charger kit, you'll get a set of Foose Mopar road wheels, new bucket seats (front & back), steering wheel, and the most impressive 'SHAKER HOOD,scoop, and air cleaner assemby.

 

Revell has also left the stock parts in this kit so you can build it as a stock version.

 

As I said before, not bad for the standard price of $24.95.

 

With a little work here and there, this should be a fun kit to build.    Hopefully someone (with more smarts than me) will post some pictures.

 

Get one, and have FUN!!!
