    Trade for SMH Resins 77 Buick Century/Regal
    Hi. I am trying to find a SMH Resins 1977 Buick century/Regal resin to make a Indy 500 Pace Car with.  I have some of my own resins to trade or can try to accommodate something else. I have 1973 GTO, 1973 Grand Am, 1974/75 Grand Am, 1976 Grand Prix, 1977 Can Am and 1977 LeMans sedan castings.  PM me if interested. Thanks!

    Got both of them. I have a scan of the Grand Am one because I used it when I built mine.  The other I have somewhere but I just moved so who knows where it is! I'll post it when I find it.

    There was an old Model Cars magazine article about transforming the Nascar Laguna into a street car using mods from a Jo Han 75 Cutlass. If I can find it I will post it.

    Did that one too. This was a build of my 77 Can Am resin that someone else did:

    More fun here. My semi-completed 75 Grand Am Pro Touring car, my 73 GTO kit, and HB Bailey's Nascar Grand Am with my resin body, courtesy of YellowSportWagon:

    This was a model of my car.

    I did a copy of my street car. I'll post the picture when I find it.

    I have seen people use an ultra fine point illustrator's refillable pen for these fine lines.

    I used the Jo Han Cutlass as the basis for my Grand Ams.  I sculpted the body with plastic and Squadron putty with Tamiya White putty and finally lacquer based automotive spot putty.  I then shot with Dupli Color filler primer and repeatedly sanded to sharpen all of the body lines.  I have three notebooks full of pictures of cars and Hemmings Muscle Machines had features on both the 73 Cutlass and 73 GTO.  They do a line drawing of those in the features so I copied those and scaled them down then made tracings of the GTO and overlaid them on the Cutlass drawing.  This allowed me to modify the body lines.  Then I made templates of the body lines and put them on the body to mark it where the lines should be.  I then sculpted the lines with putty just like a real car.  I scratch built the nose, hood and rear deck.  When I thought I had it right I made a rubber mold.  I actually owned a 73 2 door Grand Am which I sold to buy a 73 Grand Am sedan, which I still have.  I then went to the 74/75 Grand Ams, then the 77 Can Am, and then stretched the Can Am into the sedan.  I filled the shaker hole in on the Smokey car.  I built the Grand Prix from a Revell 77 Monte Carlo snap kit.  Same technique although I also went to a junk yard and took photos and measured a real car. Bottom line, it took the better part of a year to do each car.

    Dwayne, it did not take me quite as long to do mine.  I did a 73 Grand Am, 73 GTO, then a 74/75 Grand Am and then did a 77 Can Am after that.  I just took the Can Am and turned it into the LeMans Enforcer.  Like you, I have limited time so I still have not built a 77 LeMans yet.  I am finishing a Pro Touring 74/75 Grand Am and am almost done.  I also did a 76 Hurst Grand Prix.

    This is a fun one to do. I have already done it and it was a great project. Still need to do the interior, though.
