  1. One of many wrecks

    Thanks for the responses. I bought that built kit on eBay. It was a fairly nice build but coming apart. At the time, I was doing my salvage yard diorama and had quite a few wrecks in it. I'll post some more photos of wrecks when I get through with remodeling at the house. Hope to have room for some more dioramas too. http://www.shamblesmodels.com/dioramas.html
  2. '71 Duster 340

    I've never tried a pre-painted kit but I will. Yours looks outstanding!
  3. 71 duster 340

    Nice job Michelle! Good photos too.
  4. 1953 Hudson Hornet

    Beautiful! Impressive work with the foil. I've yet to achieve good results but ain't giving up.

    Just saw this message. I was in Ocala today. Are you a member?

    Cool project. Love me some old Impalas!
  7. Revell 1970 Mustang

    Impressive build. Love that color combo.
  8. 1951 Chevy De Luxe Convertible

    I like what you got going on there. I've built a few of those back in the day: http://www.shamblesmodels.com/50-s-chevys.html

    Hey, Mark. Naw, that's OK, go ahead and post your photos on this thread. I looked as your photobuck pics and looks like some great work. Seems like we have common NASCAR interests.
  10. Bare Metal '32 Ford Highboy Roadster

    Very nice work. A little dull coat on the tires would look good. http://www.shamblesmodels.com

    Thanks, Mark. I've. used that method before but on these '58 kits the side trim is really thick so I thought I'd try grinding it off. It's one of several projects I have on hold until my house projects are don.

    This is just one Nascar project, but got a couple of kits to experiment. Back then, some left the chrome trim on, some removed it. I tried grinding off all of the trim then using putty to smooth it over. I'm still working on that.

    There was no bare metal foil back then, so I made my own from renolds wrap.
  14. 1970 Buick GSX

    I hope you won the contest. Beautiful build.

    NASCAR has gotten pretty boring lately. I loved it back in the 50s, 60, and 70s when they were still "stock" cars. I'm enjoying researching the old stock car drivers and my goal is to make models of some of them that the model kit makers didn't. This a Buc Baker project. On hold until i get my new model room set up.
