  1. How did you use the boiling water to straighten the windshield post? Did you pour the water over the affected area only, or ? I ask because it looks really good after. Nice build. I have a friend with a 1:1 CRX, cool little cars.
  2. Well, at least you can remember the 70's. I can't. Cause I was born at the tail end, in '79.🤣 Thanks for all the kind words, folks.
  3. Looks like you're off to a good start. I agree, the shine needs to be knocked down on the interior. I also suffer from 1/10th RC addiction and 1/24 & 1/25 model cars, but I guess there's a lot worse things to be addicted to.
  4. This is the Dirty Donnie's van kit. This is the first and only(so far) kit that I opened the doors on. Had to open the hood too as it was sealed, which is wierd as it includes an engine. Added the sunroof, Fujimi wheels and tires, and painted with Duplicolor Ford medium blue metallic with Duplicolor clear. Used the kit decals. Seems like I can only upload 2 pics for whatever reason, oh well🤔

  6. Thanks for all the comments guys! espo, that was a good read, thanks for the info.
  7. Thank you. Love the user name. I'm a bit of a Mopar afficianado myself, I own three of them. Albeit, one is a Caravan 🤣. I've not heard of the club. I'll send you an e-mail. Wasn't the 350 a one year option?
  8. Thank you. The air cleaners come from the Johan 1962 Chrysler 300.
  9. Thanks, that's a possibility. I was also considering a bumper from a 57 Fury, which I think, is available in resin.
  10. Thanks guys. Yeah, lot of work taking that side molding off. I think I used a chisel tipped exacto blade to get the bulk of it off.
  11. Bought this kit at a swap meet and immediately tore into it. I was inspired at the time by Steve Bouttes? custom Oldsmobile he was building in a dark green. Don't think I reached his quality but I tried😁. Shaved the side trim and most everything else, except the door handles. Lowered it quite a bit, had to raise the driveshaft tunnel in doing so. Removed the rear bumper and wish I would've filled in the rear roll pan. This too, was a strip and repaint as the testors clear I used was an older can and wouldn't dry, even after sitting for 2 weeks. The paint is a duplicolor GM pearl green touch up paint from Canadian Tire cleared with Tamiya ts13. The roof is Tamiya racing white. The interior was flocked and the rear and front seats are the custom pieces from the 62 Pontiac Catalina. The door panels and rear package tray have tuck n roll made from Plastruc panels. The engine is the kit supplied mess. It looks mainly like a big block Mopar to me so I modded the intake to resemble a big block and added the distributor to the front and added my own cast copies of Johan air cleaners from the 62 Chrysler 300 kit. I made my own Lucas style headlights using pieces from the same Catalina kit, the wheels too. I can't stand the front bumper and wish I would've done something different, I might still change it eventually. Was aiming for an early sixties custom.

    I tried to go for a period correct color, seemed like there were a lot more brown cars in the late 70's/early 80's........And you`re right about the rotary rims, they were actually available on the real cars.

    Thank you. Painted with testors aluminum, dry brushed testors brown for the rust and then went over it with Tamiya dark brown and black panel liner.
