  1. Followed along closely on instagram. Again, wonderful job!
  2. Thank you Gene, I'll try to post updates as I continue to make progress. All that's left is to paint and assemble the chassis, and assemble the engine. I have a resin big block based off a 572 that I'm planning on using a hat injected tunnel ram.
  3. I've been working on this again, since the last update she's gotten paint and new wheels.
  4. Thanks! This is only the second time I've used it and I've had good luck both times.
  5. Thanks guys! Thank you for the suggestion, I noticed that I got the color wrong after I got the car all together. Unfortunately it's too late because I already gave it to my teacher.
  6. They're very nice but $60 is a little rich for my blood I'll PM you and see what you have
  7. This car started off as a glue bomb that I built years ago. I wanted to build a gift for my high school shop teacher so I pulled it apart and started building. I originally wanted to build a late 70's style bracket car but as I shared the build on my instagram ( Brunelles_scalemodels ) account, many urged me to build a Yenko style replica. I made way too many modifications to list so please ask questions if there's something you'd like to know. The paint is Plastikote metallic gold, the same color I used to repaint the brake booster on my truck. Feel free to ask questions and give me advice!
  8. I'm doing my first consignment build for a fellow friend and racer. His '72 nova currently has Mickey Thompson drag radials which I'll be ordering from Chief Joseph but I don't know who makes something close to a 15x9 or 15x10 rear draglite that small. I know there are resin pieces out there but I need a pre-chromed set because I'm not set up to airbrush.
  9. Not sure if I ever posted the 427 ford from my cannonball project, I detailed this one almost to the best of my ability with a limited budget.
  10. Revell 1964 Ford Fairlane. Painted testors hunter green and weathered with the salt method and thinned acrylic washes. For the most part, everything come out of the box. I detailed the 427 with ignition wiring and wire looms, dipsticks, throttle linkage and return springs, fuel line, a one wire alternator, and even battery cable to the starter. I didn't modify the chassis much as it was already mini tubbed and came with coil over shocks and a 9" rear end. I made a full 10 point roll cage out of aluminum that cannot be seen from the outside of the car, and color coordinated the interior. I used some BFG drag radials from chief Joseph? I believe with some parts box front tires. I did some other minor details including the removal of side trim, opening up the grille, and tinting the side and rear windows.
  11. Thank you for all the comments, I appreciate them! Thanks for pointing that out, I'll make sure that gets done!
  12. Thank you for the feedback! No, I'm waiting to add taillights until I can find something I like a little better than the kit pieces, good eye though!
  13. Nice progress on the square tube chassis!
  14. There's not a whole lot to say about this one. It's simply the Revell Rat Roaster kit, I lowered the front end, changed the wheels, threw a tunnel ram and dual carbs at it, and slung some paint on it and called it a day. For me it was more of a quick box stock style build that didn't require much modification. The paint is Testors lacquer, wheels are generic revell steelies, tunnel ram is amt, and velocity stacks are scratch built. The BMF turned out mediocre, I should have scribed all the trim before hand. Let's just say the pictures are helping it out a bit.
  15. It's been a while, it's time I dig this one back out and finish it up!
