  1. I also don't use an air brush. I have had good luck with duplicolor rattle can clear over decals. I ususally put on three light coats 20 minutes apart let it sit over night and give it a good coat in the morning. Hope this helps.

    Looks good! I've been thinking about trying this car. What kit did you use and where did you source the wheels? I like it.

    Nice filters!! Are they made using the paper back novel trick?
  4. Datsun 432

    Hey guys got this kit from my uncle a while back. I would like to cut the hood out and maybe hinge it. Saw lots of hinge tricks here great info for that. Was wondering what the best way to cut out the hood would be. Do I just use the back side of my knife and scribe out the hood? Also would like to cut the grill and make one swing the mesh that comes in the kit. Any help would be great guys thanks!!

    Thanks for looking guys!

    So finally got some bench time in. Work had me all over Alberta and B.C. The last week. This may be a slower build as things are picking up work wise. Finally got the hood cut out. Pretty happy with it. Sanded it down everything looks good now that that part is out of the way I'm more motivated to build this project. Found a window louver from a revelle mustang and it seems to fit pretty well. Still in the air about it. Here are a few pics of what I've got so far.

    This is great guys! Who would have thought I'd have learned this much from building a model car.
  9. Datsun 432

    Thanks ken!! Would you know of a good site for reference pics for interior and the engine? I'm guessing that the rear spoiler was also flat black? Just got called to work today so will be away all weekend but I can do some homework on this car in the evenings before I build.

    Few pics under the hood of my uncles car.

    Thanks Chris! Great link, see if my 2 years worth of skills can pull that off.
  12. Datsun 432

    Don't know a lot about these cars but my uncle has a 78 280z has done a lot of the work to it over the years. He used to build models not so much now. He gave me the kit while visiting. I've been showing him lots of pictures of other builds and he asked when I was going to do this one. Figured I'd blow the dust off the box and spend some time on this one in between builds. Originally I wanted to cut out the gril and the hood. Wanted to use the mesh that comes with the kit to custom make a gril. Upon googling this car I've realised the hood is hinged on the front similar to old corvettes where would I hinge it? Skills aren't there yet to attempt all of this. Thinking I'll just leave the gril as is and cut out the hood. Be a shame to put a nice engine in it and cover it up.

    Yes, the kit came with 2 engine choices. I'm leaning towards the one on the right, from what I gather it seems to have a lil more "jam."

    Thanks Stephen! That's kinda what I thought just hesitant in case there was a better way to do it.
  15. Well, it's been a long time since I've built or posted anything. Now that our dog is 2 he likes to lay down for a little bit. Not having to supervise him all the time means I have a little free time. Anyway always liked the look of weathered/beat up vehicles, but was too scared to try one myself. Bought this kit and thought what the heck. If it goes bad spare parts. So I sprayed 3 colours duplicolor semi gloss black, then duplicolor red primar. Then finally krylon for the blue. I waited a day for the final Color to dry and then picked out my Favorite chair in the house and started sanding. After sanding most of the day here is my attempt at what you guys make look so easy. Havent decided if I want to use these wheels and paint the spokes with primar..or use skinnies white walls and black steel wheels. Hope you like it. As always comments welcome! Thanks for looking guys!
  16. Got in late. Had a little time to start interior.
  17. Holy BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH! Very well done! Best wrecker I've seen.
  18. Rat Roaster in gray

  19. Polar Lights '64 GTO

    Nothing to be ashamed of here! Looks sharp love the interior.
  20. 29 Ford NOT What you think!

    This is way cool!! If I had that thing in real life I'd feel like George Jetson!! Keep up the good work really like the idea of turning the fenders around.
  21. This keeps getting better and better!! Love watching you work Joe!
  22. Well guys first of all thanks for looking and for the kind words. Decided to sit down today and do some engine work. Bought Testors Createfx acrylic black wash. Engine was given a light wash since I did earlier with black and thinner. Intake manifold was given 3 wash coats. Carbs were painted gold and washed 4 or 5 times to dull down the gold. Found some copper wire and decided I needed fuel lines. Then found some smaller gauge wire and figured it would make a nice makeshift throttle linkage. Getting cross eyed now so going to call it a night, here are some pics. Let me know what you think usually I stop at plug wires. Comments welcome guys and thanks for lookin!
  23. Project "cruster" 71 Plymouth Duster

    Wow! This I like! Love the old muslemcars customized like this! Lime green is going to be sweet definatley going to be watching this one.
  24. Well not a lot, but a little more this morning. Going to work for the weekend, thought I'll pick away at the interior of the truck. Was hoping to work on the engine but don't want to rush it. I think I might repaint the wheels. Now that I look at them in the picture, not happy with how it covered and my hand slipped I see when I was doing the silver in the lug nuts. So that being said here is one more pic. Again thanks for looking! Comments welcome!
  25. This looks wild!! Like that you decided to lengthen it!
