  1. Post pics of your fave paint jobs!

    Revell 57 painted Testors' Icy Blue.
  2. Moebius & AMT Pontiacs

    This one is the Ventura, started these this week, I do like how the finned brake drums turned out. Closeup of Pontiac Wheels. Centers were painted Tamiya aluminum while outside was painted Testors' silver. Can't leave the Catalina out of this, can I? Wheels are kit supplied while I sourced the parts box for the BF Goodrich Radial T/As And since I'm building Catalinas, here is the AMT version. Wheels are from AMT 65 Pontiacs while tires are parts box items. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  3. AT 65 Pontiac 2 + 2

    First completion since January 2017, got this one done November 30 of this year. Painted Testors' Fathom Green, with various shades of grey for interior. Tires/Wheels are Pegasus "23" Ts" Thanks for looking, comments welcomed.
  4. A heads up, if any of you have picked up the "Gear Hustler" 65 El Camino with the intention of using the deep dish chrome reverse wheels with the L60x15 kit supplied tires, be aware. The rims fall off the tires and the backing plates that come in the kit are too wide to work. I found that a set of backing plates from the AMT 57 Belair works nicely to keep the wheels in place. They will have to be glued to the wheels though. You will need to glue the wheel onto the axle as well since they tend to fall off.
  5. I wanted to build one with the Edsel tail lights and Desoto front bumper, so I started this one. I also found some fin extensions and a set of wild fender skirts. What do you all think? I got lots of sandingin my future!
  6. I have an original issue 57 Ford that I have the style line parts from and I wanted to use them, so here is the result so far. I am using the "Kandy Kart" front and the extended rear on this one. Lots of gaps to fill! I found someone on ebay selling the older chrome trees for this kit, the one with the chrome suspensions so I got that. I also ordered a set of double stripe AMT tires for it. I'll be using the deep dish wheels and baby moons on this build. Thanks
  7. The wheels and hubcaps came from the Revell Chevy 150 sedan kit.
  8. Yet Another AMT 57 Bel Air (New Tool)

    Got some work done on the interior of this one yesterday. painted with Humbrol Satin 174 red, which I think came out too shiny so I'm going to paint over all the red with matt 60 red. I used MCG flocking for the carpet and I did not get the results I wanted. I really like Ken's fuzzy fur but I don't have any red, so I will have to see if I can fix this better. I was going to have this one with a red and white interior but the red ran in the crevices so much I decided it needed to be red and black :-) I still need to do the BMF on this and paint the rubber floor mats a flat red. That's it for now!
  9. Getting back to this one final. Did some work on the interior, Tamiya Dark German grey, flat aluminum, ultra bright BMF, and kit supplied decals. I think it come out really well, just some touch up on the aluminum on the front seat. I have some Ken's Fuzzy fur for the carpet area.
  10. AMT 1957 chevy in progres pics

    Engine looks good! Watch out for the frame, it is tricky and tends to be warped.
  11. Started a few days ago with a body that I had painted years ago, I reshot some Tamiya Italian Red over it. The wheels are a set of AMT 69 Chevelle SS Wheels that actually inspired this build. Engine is from the kit, with an intake from the AMT 55 Chevy Sedan kit. Parts box "Corvette" valve covers and metallic grey painted headers. Frame is done. I used the stock exhaust and just mated it to the headers. Thanks for looking! Al l comments welcomed.
  12. AMT and Revell 57 Chevys

    While I am at it, a couple more on the back burner, started about 6 years ago. Silver and grey interior, single 4 bbl and auto Silver and gun metal (Tamiya colors) with duel 4 barrel intake from the new tool AMT kit. I started this one before the convertibles were out.
  13. AMT and Revell 57 Chevys

    The mild custom will be a green, I am up in the air on the full custom right now. Not even a clue as to what color it will be. Perhaps Aztec Gold? (Testors' one coat lacquer).
  14. AMT and Revell 57 Chevys

    Funny you should mention that, here are two I started years ago. Both will be black with red/silver interior for convert and red/black for sedan. I'm also using the continental kit and skirts on this Revell 2 door sedan.
  15. AMT and Revell 57 Chevys

    Yes, the skirts are taped on. Thanks for the tip.
