  1. 1959 Imperial Convertible

    Ramming speed! Nice take on it. I just bought two of these, can’t wait to build them.
  2. 1963 Plymouth Fury (Jo Han)

    Really nice job. Love the interior.
  3. 1962 Bel Air

    Thanks again all. Dave, I mixed kens fuzzy fur green and blue together for the carpet.
  4. 1955 Dodge

    The tri-tone is really cool. I have a bunch of MCW cars in the queue. Any global tips?
  5. 1962 Bel Air

    Thanks everybody! As for the seats, I made decals of the cloth fabric seat inserts using a swatch from the '62 Chevrolet dealer album repeated over and over and then shrunk down to 1/25. That is still an experimental process for me.
  6. 1962 Bel Air

    This kit (the AMT Northwind variant) was rather troublesome in final assembly, nothing seemed to fit right. Or perhaps I was the cause of my own trouble... Anyway, you see these cars all the time in red or white, I decided to try code 965 (Twilight Turquoise over Twilight Blue).
  7. Thank you all for the feedback and compliments. the trouble seems to be with the tub, since the body fits well on the chassis without it (see photo of firewall as it butts up against the floor pan). I think it is either the windshield hitting the dash or the back window hitting the parcel shelf. Kit is the Northwind type and I've got the windows glued in against the roof as far as they will go, I think.
  8. Hello everyone. i'm having some difficulty getting the final assembly done on the AMT 62 Bel Air. It seems no matter where i grind with the dremel, the body and tub won't sit on the chassis plate low enough. and the tub wont't sit high enough in the body ...the photos show both problems. Has anyone else had similar issues with this kit, and if so, any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  9. 62 VW Samba Bus

    Really nice work! I have the flower power bus kit that i will build one of these days. It looks complicated....
  10. Johan Cadillac Glue Bombs

    Inspired by Tom99's awesome glue bomb resurrections, here are a couple of mine...Johan '63 Cadillac Series 62 Coupe in Cardiff Gray and a '64 Cadillac de Ville Convertible in Sandalwood. Must figure out a way to get the hoods to sit flat.

    Beautiful work. Super nice rescue on the Invicta.
  12. 1958 Edsel Pacer - AMT

    superb work. love the tri-tone exterior.
  13. 1961 Pontiac Catalina Ventura

    Thank you! here are a couple of other photos of the gold one. Good luck with your StratoChief.
  14. 1961 Pontiac Catalina Ventura

    Thanks all. Mr. Obsessive's tips are what helped me through this build (thank you Bill)! As to the core support, most of the upper portion has to be removed, out to about half of the grille pin receptors on each side. I also removed a little of the backside of the grille/bumper piece. Actually this is the second Moebius Ventura that i built; on the first one (finished in Mayan Gold and Cherrywood Bronze), i chickened out on the 8 lugs and went for the steel wheels and poverty caps. After going to a local car show recently and taking a bunch of photos of 8 lugs in 1:1, i finally got my act together and conquered the scale versions.
  15. Sorry for being late to the party...I finally finished this car, Jadestone Green with a Seacrest Green top. Took a while to get though the issues with the 8 lugs, the front glass, and the front grille/core support.
