    That's it! I'm giving up on modeling and taking up crochet. That is just spectacular. The paint looks a mile deep. Fantastic.

    Thank you all!
    I realized after I posted the pictures were of very poor quality. Here's some much better pictures.
    I also realized I forgot to paint the door handles!

    1975 Dart Sport
    Greetings All!

    When I saw the Dart Sport in my LHS I knew I had to build one. My original plan was to build granny's slant 6 econo grocery getter. I was planning on cutting the console out of the interior and going bench seat. But as I got into the kit, I decided just to build it as a simple fun build. I did buy resin dog-dishes on ebay, and stole steel wheels out of a '62 AMT Corvette kit. The color is Testors Lacquer Chrysler Bronze with One Coat clear. My Dad's '69 Valiant was the same color.
    This was a simple, fun build.
    Comments welcome.
    Thanks!!

    One thing that you might want to consider in your builds. The windshield is incredibly thick and you have to remove the vent window glass. I used a black sharpie around the perimeter. That hides the thickness.

    Just built mine. A lot of flash, and terrible tail lights, but overall a simple and fun kit to build. The gauge decals really help the interior.

    Thanks everyone! I took the body off last night and found the issue; the metal rear axle was too long. I bit of trimming and the body is hinged open. I'll post pics later.

    Thanks David. I wish the camera could pick up the flake in the paint. It's like a bass boat.

    Revell Chi-Town Hustler
    Greetings all!

    I finally finished a model I've been working on for a long time. This was a easy to assemble and fun kit!
    The finish is a Duplicolor Metal Specks finish with Testors clear over the decals. I'd love to show the chassis but the rear axle it a bit too wide...the tires won't clear the body to allow it to hinge open!

    I was most excited about the finish anyway. The entire kit is box stock including the motor.

    Comments welcome.

    Thanks,

    Eric

    1962 Corvette
    Greetings All!!

    Here's another model I just finished. This is the Revel 1962 Corvette. I was surprised how much flash my copy had, but overall it went together well. The color is Testors One Coat Bronze.

    I added white walls using a Gelly Roll pen...a great skill I learned right here.

    Thanks for looking!

    1978 Trans Am
    Greetings all!

    So far this summer has started off with a couple of fun builds that I'd like to share.
    The first is a Monogram/Revell 1978 Pontiac Trans Am.
    I painted the Trans Am with Testors Lacquer in Root Beer which I think pretty well captures Pontiac Brentwood Brown (which was the color of my first car, a 1:1 1977 Pontiac Catalina).
    Super simple build. My only gripe...no Trans Am lettering, so I stole it from a MPC Blackbird kit.

    Thanks!

    Eric

    '78 Trans Am
    I had the bug to build a Trans Am to go with the '79 Z-28 I built earlier, so here's my rendition of a '79 T/A. The kit is Monogram, and the paint is Testors Root Beer lacquer.
    Thanks for looking !
