Topics I've Started

MPC 1:20 AMX Box Stock

10 December 2014 - 10:13 AM

I wasn't happy when I picked this up and found out the proper stripes weren't included. So I went to Google Images and saw this two tone, stripes weren't needed. I painted it Testors big bad blue lacquer and Tamiya's gloss black two tone. 3 coats of Testors wet look clear for top coat and Tamiya clear blue for the window tint. The interior was done in Tamiya semi-gloss black. This is a nice kit with the exception to the tires, which seem a little big.

Let me know what you think.

58 Lincoln MK III

I bought this 2 years ago at the NNL East and forgot all about it. Wednesday I was going through my stash and found it. This is a Modelhaus kit and very well done. I painted it Dupli-color Dark Toreador Red with Wet Look Clear top coats. The interior was done in Krylon Dark Merlot and I tinted the glass with light coats of Tamiya's Clear Blue. I'm very happy with the finish on this one, a very rewarding build.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks for looking.

59 Edsel Conv. Finished!

17 November 2014 - 09:14 AM

I finished the Edsel in a long build for me, in 3 days. I painted it Krylon turquoise with Tamiya's ptimer white for the body and seat inserts and finished it off with 3 coats of Testors wetlook clear. 3 very light coat of Tamiya's clear blue was applied to the windshield to give it a nice tint. I waited a long time to find a clean 59 Edsel and I think the wait was worth it. I'm still waiting on the fender ornimates from The Modelhaus.

Thanks for looking.

59 Edsel & 67 Chrysler 300 Edsel's Done!

09 November 2014 - 03:43 PM

I picked these up yesturday at the LIARS show. Both are original unpainted and unmolested condition. The Edsel will be done in turquoise with white, but I need some suggestions for the Chrysler. I got both of these for under a hundred bucks.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Rare 62 Revell Imperial Restored

29 October 2014 - 12:10 PM

This one took me almost a year to finish. The body was badly warped and the only replacement parts The Modelhaus carries for a 62 Imperial are for the AMT verision except the taillights. I straightened the body the best I could and painted in Tamiya Pearl Light Blue, Testors Wet Look Clear and Tamiya's Clear Blue for window tint. The interior was finished in Testors Maroon Lacquer. This car used a whole steet of BMF, which included front and rear bumpers and grill. The taillight are from The Modelhaus, Note!!! The bumpers The Modelhaus carries are for the AMT kit only. I was lucky and sold mine to a friend who had the AMT version.

Let me know what you think about the color combo, it's a combo my dad's 64 Chrysler 300 and like the way it looked.
