  1. Awesome progress of the sedan conversion! Cant`t wait for the following results. Good job sir.
  2. Thanks Dwayne! I used aluminum foil to duplicate the fender and hood and then I damaged them. I used epoxy on the backside to secure the foil afterwards and glue them on to the styrene body with super glue. You can see my whole process in here: Good luck with your builds too.
  3. Fantastic work! Please check out my 4DR build too:
  4. Thank you Michael, I got the flat hood from here: http://www.reliableresin.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=4&products_id=77 Can you show me where can I buy the mopar volcano wheel that you 3D printed?
  5. Hi Michael, super impressive work! I`m building a base model `70 Challenger would like to use your mopar volcano hubcaps, could you post a link of that your casting hubcap item on ebay?
  6. I used pencil to draw the outline on the primer body first, ant then I just used X-acto knife to slightly do some strokes along the pencil line (free hand). After a couple of strokes for the depth I pushed harder to achieve the desired depth for the door lines. I think it just takes some patience and a fresh blade
  7. Thank you Charlie. Haha I`ll put it in my calendar, next one should be an accurate "glasshouse" style 4-door sedan with the correct Caprice full trim.
  8. Thank you very much! Good luck with your own build too. One modifucation I did to this model was to reshape the C-pillar. The original shape was missing a triangle area so I had to use styrene to fix it.
  9. Thanks, I really like to put side windows on a car model so it looks it can be properly left on the curbside.
  10. Thank you Kevin! I actually didn`t really fix the rear bumper, I just shaved the body rear panel and used bondo to make it to fit the bumper.
  11. Thank you for sharing your experience, Steve. I like to build model cars based on my childhood memories, that`s why I`m more into cars in the 70`s. I grew up in China in 1980`s and we had a few American tv show and movies on screen, like <Hunter> and <Superman>. I remember there were a lot of the full-size cars in those media which were from the 1970s and were not in a good condition. But those images were always a big inspiration for me in that time era and I really think those last generation full-size cars during malaise era are really cool! Especially when they turn into curbside beaters and lose all the hubcaps and then I can feel the authenticity.
  12. Thank you very much. I found the correct fonts and sticker images online, and then I used Adobe illustrator for the graphic design and print it out with tin can glued to the back.
  13. Thank you, yes I still remember those crappy orange plastic parts and huge flashes everywhere, not to mention those incorrect wheel position. It took me quite a while to clean it up but I`m happy with what turns out in the end
