Vande added a topic in GeneralDoes anyone know anything about this model?My wife and I were at the local thrift store the other day, I picked up a model that is missing many of the pieces, including the sidecar, but looks like with a little work, could be a nice model. The only thing I could find on it is this:
Does anyone happen to have more information on it? I am hoping I found something cool, I watched a guy walking around with a 12th scale porsche kit he found right before I walked in...

Vande added a topic in Wanted!Revell 66 Malibu SS Parts Needed...So I found one of the kits I was trying to find from my youth, actually found 4 kits at a local thrift store. Of the 4, 2 were still in the package, and the Malibu is missing at least 2 parts I need.
I am looking for the tilt front end, and the interior tub for the car.
I do have a 65 el camino and the 24 hrs of daytona corvette c5 both outer boxes opened, but the interior bags are sealed, can trade as needed!

Vande added a topic in Drag Racing ModelsHemi Powered Impala - Iron-ManOkay so while working on the engine for my impala AWB/Gasser, I stumbled on to a color combination that gave me a theme idea for the car. I will be slow working on this one, but here are a couple pics.
Most of the parts are being snagged from one of my new kits, here is a shot of my most recent purchases.
On to the good photos:
More once I get some more work done!

Vande added a topic in On the Workbench: Pickups, Vans, SUVs, Light CommercialModified Fujimi Chevy Astro - "Astro Glyder"Okay before anyone thinks I am nuts, the name is actually based on what my wife calls her Astro, nothing more!
I started working on this kit a little while back, and just picked it back up recently after finding this site, and getting inspiration. Here is where it sits so far:
Front end smoothed and slammed to the ground:
Side shot sitting at the planned height:
My first major mod after reading this site: (cut out the step bumper and smoothed it)
I just like this shot, it was my first attempt at a photo of the model with my cell phone:
Lots more in store, I have started to mold in an impala lowrider suspension under the body, then I can work on getting the interior straightened out. I have several parts and pieces from scale dreams for the interior, from batteries to hydros to speakers and amps.
I am thinking I will keep the flat black once everything is smoothed, it makes the rims and chrome pop. I still need to add the side skirts and smooth them down, I like the look of the stock molding.

Vande added a topic in Truck Aftermarket / Resin1st Generation S10/S15 Blazer Kit?I have been looking for a couple years to see if any company ever released a first generation (pre-1994) S10 Blazer/S15 Jimmy/Oldsmobile Bravada kit. I am looking for the body to do a concept of the 1:1 I am building as a tribute truck. So far I have had no luck finding one, and I have seen a lot of rare kits on here, so I am hoping someone has seen one.
There is a long story behing the truck I am building, if I can ever find a body to do a model, I will explain when I start on it. Thanks for the help!
