  1. Accurate Miniatures Grand Sport Corvette

    I think it looks pretty nice myself, paint, side marker lights, wheel detail and decals add to the authenticity value. I have four of these kits, two are under construction, Chassis #003 and 005. I have not seen any twist in my frames, but I noticed you filled the chanels in the frame tubes as many of us have done. Could the twist could have happened then?
  2. Snap Tite 1957 Chevy

    I see the problem, your using the wrong beer! But really, great job on the 57, cleanly built and nicely detailed...
  3. '69 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (Revell, 1/25 scale)

    Good looking 'maro

    Thanks DJ...
  5. Enforcer Custom Corvette

    This about where it's at. This is a real POS, I tried very hard from the beginning test fitting, checking, rechecking and more test fitting. By the time I figure there was no way the glass would fit I was swamped. Now it's just a matter of pride to finish it...
  6. AMT '62 Corvette

    Nice work here...
  7. Gonna attempt IMCA Mod.

    Good looking vacuform. The Tobias chassis is really outdated for these types of cars. Depending on your skills a scratch built chassis can be made to order or one of the old ASA kits could be modified to fill the need. This is an ASA chassis with a vintage look... You could also use one of the Rat Trap Vega style kits Feel free to browse thru the link, I use to build quite a few short trackers. http://s176.photobucket.com/user/fredjames_2007/library/34 Ford Modified?sort=2&page=1
  8. 1970 Chevelle SS - Brother's Birthday Car

    Absolute lovely model! Very clean build and your attention to detail shows throughout...
  9. 67 Camaro Street

    Piddle'n with the engine...
  10. I built a raced version of this subject once and this one is stunning. Great detail and cleanly built. The attention to accuracy is evident. Nice job!
  11. Looking pretty nice so far, Any chance you can get the nose up some for a more gasser like appearance...

    Here are some comparison pixs and also the interior door panel arched to fit the tubs. You'll notice the location holes for the leaf springs are in the same spot and while I did narrow the axle tubes for the tires they do fit under the body as seen in the previous profile. Keep in mind as I stated this is a mini tub chassis!

    Are you suggesting they don't fit?

    I hope you guys don't mind, I have quite a few WIP going. This time of year is building time for me, being near single digit temps and snow daily. Not just because of the inability to paint but because there is not much reason to go outside! This is the Revell kit and I have had this build in mind since it's release. Using my friend's "Jerry's House of Resin" https://www.ebay.com/usr/jerome6970?_trksid=p2053788.m1543.l2754 mini tub chassis to get some wider rubber underneath. After some clean up I had to adjust the interior pan to fit. Also the interior door panels need rearched. I used the kit front suspension, modified for a lower stance. The rear axle just fell in place. Wheels are from the AMT 57 Gasser Vette and the rear tires are PPP, front spare parts. The hood is a combined effort from the kit and a Revell 69 Nova piece grafted together. Thanks for checking in, comments welcome...
