  1. Cougar II

    Very nice! I too attempted to build this as a kid in the 70's and lost interest due to all the finicky moving parts. I have one of these in my build stash, after seeing yours, I want to move it up the list to build, and I too will opt for non-moving parts build. Thanks to post this one!
  2. 68 Cougar GT

    wow! beautiful build
  3. 1/25 Tribute Hot Wheels Custom Camaro

    Thanks everyone for the nice comments, I'm having fun building these, I'll post more as I build them
  4. 1967 Cougar - Modelhaus

    Thanks for the compliment. Yes, the white dash would not have been a factory color with the white interior. When I first built this model I was intending it to be a Hot Wheels tribute build, which has all white interior. I changed my mind to not make it an actual Hot Wheels tribute build after i had completed the model and could not change the dash pad to black color. here is the Cougar I actually made into a Hot Wheels tribute with the brown interior after this one was built
  5. AMT 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT, 390 4-speed.

    Excellent builds, well done especially on the Cougar, love it!
  6. 1/25 Tribute Hot Wheels Custom Camaro

    Thanks, yes the AMT 68 kit, actually not a bad kit overall
  7. Some of you may have seen previously my tribute builds of the original Sweet 16 Hot Wheels released 50-years ago in 1968. I purchased all 16 1/25 kits and have been slowly building them. I have 7 now complete, almost halfway! The most recent is the Hot Wheels Custom Camaro I have attempted to re-create as closely as possible the custom body modifications, such as the hood "bumps" as for this one and the "zoomies" are aluminum tubing. Wheels are Pegasus "T's" I've detailed to resemble the Redlines, using black and red Sharpies, pretty basic but for me, they look pretty nice. Paint is Duplicolor Electron Blue
  8. You still have models built long ago?

    Another oldie I saved Custom "Streaker Vette" modified a lot!
  9. You still have models built long ago?

    I love seeing everyone's old original builds! I was lucky to save some as well from the 70's This one is one of my most detailed, 71 Cougar XR7 I built when I was 13-14 Back when we used thread run through bees-wax for wiring Check out the air-shock filler and handmade ladder brackets. hand painted "Sweet Emotion" was the name of the car when I recall naming cars was a thing. Wish I could detail paint like that again. Back when having a beer in the car wasn't a big deal. That's a COOR's on the open glove-compartment
  10. Fantastic builds, always enjoy seeing them
  11. Let's see your TV and movie cars!

    I did a "what-if" the show was back on the air today restomod build of the Starksy and Hutch Stripped Tomato. Molded in the front bumper, added a hood scoop, custom wheels and low-profile tires and stanced ride height, recaro seats replace the bench seat and of course a total redesign of the big fat stripe.
  12. Lamborghini Countach biturbo

    Bella! That is a beauty of a build, well done!
  13. 1969-1970 Chevy Pickup grill and bumper

    Thanks for the update, I was just going to order tonight from his site directly. Sorry to hear he's laid-up and can't work. I'll look him up in the future.
  14. 1969-1970 Chevy Pickup grill and bumper

    Fantastic! Thank you Tommy! I thought I had seen one available, just couldn't find who had it and of course, I forgot about Bandit Resin to search.
  15. I've searched this forum and about everywhere else, looking for info on a 1969 or 1970 Chevy pickup grill and bumper if anyone has cast one. I'd like to convert the 1972 kit to tribute a build of a buddies 1970
