  1. Terrific work on this custom rod!
  2. '32 Channeled Nailhead Roadster UPDATED 11/26/17

    Outstanding build, Dennis! Lovin' the prototypically accurate engineering. Though now my budget has to accommodate TWO Revell kits for nailhead parts, dammit!
  3. Monogram Yellow Jacket

    Outstanding work on this meticulous build, Bob!
  4. 1909 EMF Racer

    Incredible. What a treat to see such a rare old kit built so well.
  5. 1903 Cadillac

    Wow, that's amazing. So great to see a build of this vintage kit.
  6. 1912 Ford Model T Pickup

    Love it.
  7. 1/25 AMT '58 Edsel Pacer

    While it's pretty crude in the detail department, I think the original 1958-vintage kit has better body proportions and shape...
  8. 1910 Ford Model T Torpedo

    Very impressive! I've always wanted to try one of these.
  9. 1/25 AMT '58 Edsel Pacer

    The engine in the Edsel kit represents the 361 4V FE shared by all Ford-based Edsels, including the Pacer, Ranger, and all wagons. The 410 4V MEL engine was only available in the Merc-based Edsel Citation and Corsair.
  10. Another 40 Ford coupe

    Nice clean build! Love that color, too.
  11. Monogram Yellow Jacket

    Nice kit! Love the real rubber tire that are in these early issues. Some careful knife work with a fresh #11 blade to thin down the spokes on the wire wheels can make a huge difference.
  12. '58 Fairlane 500 Semi-Custom! Interior!!

    Thanks, Bill! Give it a try, Bill – embrace the simplicity! Everybody needs at least one '58 Ford! Thanks, Chris! On the lower A arms I usually let the difference between gloss and flat black, and careful painting, define the shape of the piece. When viewed from the front the shiny A arm pops a little and the flat black lays back in shadow. The oil pan will also get some gloss color. Thanks, Dave! It also helps the illusion of detail in an area that one's eye might be drawn to due to the chrome tailpipes that I'll add later.
  13. 1960 Mercury Comet Restoration

    Really nice work. Excellent choice of color and that interior makes it!
  14. What's your holy grail kit?

    An unbuilt AMT '63 Bonneville hardtop I can actually afford!
  15. '58 Fairlane 500 Semi-Custom! Interior!!

    Recently decided to take another step to enhance the curbside view of this model by opening up the space underneath the molded-on rear leaf springs to give the parts some visual separation from the frame. Hogged them out with a Dremel tool and finished up with knife, file, and sandpaper. I added the missing portion of spring over the axle with the appropriate piece from a Revell '59 Ford Skyliner rear end. Also, as usual with AMT's 1959 kit chassis, this one has large C-notches that need filling in the frame behind the front suspension where custom lake pipes were meant to be attached. A section of sprue, a piece of square rod, and some cyano did the trick. The photos show it compared to an unmodified '59 Ford chassis in another '58 Ford.
