    Not grampas ol' 53
    Hello guys. Here's my latest build It's A Lindbergh 1/25th scale 53 Ford Victoria. Painted in testors metallic red straight out of the little bottle thinned with lacquer thinner then clear coated with tamyia glosscoat..this kit took me way too long do too too many obstacles in the way of model building time. Getting the lowered stance was a bit of a headache but hopefully it looks pretty good this is a great kit it just has lots of detail small parts..hope you guys like it...

    Heres an update got suspention done..interior also..sorry guys but went with the stock flathead motor..tried to put a motor from an extra kit i had but it would have taken me too long...I dont get much hobby time so trying to hurry through this one and figured the stock motor is just easier..besides its kind of a cool looking motor..thanks

    Beautiful job!! Thats an awsome paint job.. I love the 58 body style, I grow up in east los angeles the lowrider capitol so I know a thing or two about shorts ...my opinion you got cheated out of 1st place..just my opinion

    No problem..Using the testors enamel / laquer thinner method I used, you really dont need to primer and sand unless theres lots of flaws and mold lines on the kit.. but..on this kit I primed and painted in a different color using acrylic. I didnt like how it came out so I stripped off the paint and primer using "off oven cleaner" then carefully brushed some paint thinner to strip back down to the bare plastic and repainted without any primer..

    Probably just use the original drivetrain not much of the mechanical type so don't know what other drivetrain to put in it. Have any ideas I would greatly appreciate it.. As far as the Rims just got them online they're Pegasus rim and tire sets

    Heres a bit of a mock up of my next project..the lindberg 53 ford victoria..its painted with testors metallic red out of 1he 1/4oz bottle thinned with lacquer thinner 1 part paint to 1 part thinner..that seems to be a perfect ratio. Ill probably go with light tan interion..wish me luck..thanks

    '71 Hemi Cuda
    Hey guys heres my latest project..Revell Muscle '71 Hemi Cuda it was a fun build it went together pretty well most parts were clean and well molded. I built it pretty much box stock like the box art..I airbrushed it with aztek pearl purple acrylic and clear coated with future about 2-3 coats. About the only issue I had was when I did the final assebmbly the engine set up too high and the hood wouldnt close so I had to cut the motor mounts for proper fitment..hope you like it THANKS...also how would i be able to post more than 3 pics at a time..thats all I was allowed on this post I will add more pics next...
