  1. 76 Buick Century Project

    To paraphrase Robert DuVall in Apocalypse Now, "I love the smell of bondo in the morning."
  2. 76 Buick Century Project

    My latest two projects are Collonade Buicks: 73 Gran Sport and a 76 Century Indy pace Car. The 73 just needs final touches: grille, marker lights, locks and bumpers and it is pretty well done . The 76 is a work in progress. The Pace Car version had the formal roof with the V shaped rear window so I started with a glue bomb 75 JoHan Cutlass for the correct body scale and the roof of a 77 Revell Monte Carlo that I had chopped up for something else. Strip styrene to get the correct shape as well as grinding off the "pontoons" on the side of the Cutlass. Glued on the front end of a 77 Cutlass resin Nascar body and got out the Dremel and Squadron and Tamiya putty. Just like bodywork on a car to get the lines right.
  3. 1973-74 ? Pontiac Grand Am in resin ?

    I can still do the Can Ams. Right now I am almost done with the 73 Gran Sport prototype. I am also working on a 76 Century Pace Car prototype as well as a 74 GTO. Thanks!
  4. 1973-74 ? Pontiac Grand Am in resin ?

    You could take a 74 Grand Am body and the 73 LeMans/GTO front end and kit bash one. You would have to change the grilles and tail lights but that would not be too hard to do.
  5. New Project 73 Buick Gran Sport

    My Collonade go-to, Jo-Han 75 Cutlass. This is actually a project started by Ron Lambert. He got stalled and handed it off to me so I took what he had started and am trying to finish it up. The Cutlass has the correct wheelbase and a basic interior tub so with a little work you can transform it into other Collonade coupes.
  6. New Project 73 Buick Gran Sport

    New project to work on: 73 Buick Gran Sport. This continues my pursuit of GM Collonades-my favorite cars. Left side mostly done-I have to put in marker lights and fenderwell and rocker moldings. Then on to passenger side and front and rear. Then interior-dash, console, door panels, seats. Now that it is getting cold, I need an inside project.
  7. 1973-74 ? Pontiac Grand Am in resin ?

    I make both, as well as 73 GTO, 76 Grand Prix, 77 Can Am and 77 LeMans sedan.
  8. 73-77 Pontiacs: LeMans/GTO, Grand Am, Can Am

    I still do them occasionally as work schedule permits. My next two projects are the 73 Gran Sport and 76 Regal Indy Pace Car. I also have done a 76 Hurst T Top Grand Prix in addition to the Grand Am projects. The Cutlass chassis will work with mods. Th picture is one of my bodies done by someone on the board.
  9. SMH Resins 1977 Buick Century/Regal

    I have a semi-completed master for the 73 Gran Sport done and can certainly do my own 76 to cast, but was trying to avoid it by starting with the SMH car. However, it looks like they are hard to come by so this winter I may be doing Buicks.
  10. 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!
  11. SMH Resins 1977 Buick Century/Regal

    Looking for a SMH Resins 1977 Buick Regal/Century for a Indianapolis 500 Pace Car build. I have some of my own resin castings that I could swap: 1973 GTO, 1973 Grand Am, 1974/75 Grand Am, 1976 Grand Prix, 1977 Can Am or 1977 LeMans 4 door sedan. PM if interested. Thanks!
  12. '75 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna S3

    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.
  13. '75 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna S3

    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.
  14. '75 Chevrolet Chevelle Laguna S3

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