  5. Hot Wheels Tribute 1/25 Custom Cougar

    Thanks, Dave. Yes, this is the 6th of 16 I have completed. Here are the other 5 completed so far
  6. 66 Le Mans winning GT40

    Wow! That's stunning
  7. I have been on a building quest of re-creating the original Sweet 16 Hot Wheels cars from 1968. This is #6, the Custom Cougar. Started with the Modelhaus 1967 Cougar, shaved the door handles, emblems, wipers, and drip rails. Molded in the hood "bumps" most all Hot Wheels have some variation. Wheels are Pegasus "T's" big and little's, used a black and red Sharpie to recreate the Redlines. Aluminum tubing for the "zoomies" side exhaust. Color is Peridot - FolkArt craft paint and several coats of Duplicolor clear polished. Interior I used Desert Beige to replicate the darker interior color. The Hot Wheels Diecast
  8. 67 Corvette (Monogram)

    Very nice! Great color choices
  9. AMT 1969 Mercury Cougar CJ428

    No offense at all! Corvette generation layout: C1 > 1953-1962 / C2 > 1963-1967 / C3 > 1968-1982 with three variations I call C3.1 > 1968-1972 / C3.2 > 1973-1979 / C3.3 > 1980-1982 - NO 1983 model Corvette even though it was the 30th Anniversary. C4 > 1984-1996 with two variations of the front and rear bumpers and interiors 1984-1989 and 1990-1996 / C5 > 1997-2004 / C6 > 2005-2013 / C7 > 2014-current Sounds great, do a brick/maroon theme, can't wait to see them, I'm a Vette nut by the way...

    Thanks, Mike, appreciate the comment and the C3 has become one of my favorite builds, I owned an 81 for 6-months back in the 80's. Yes, I'm building all generations in this same theme, a complete C1 to C7. Next on the bench is a 1990 C4. I'll also be building the other two C3's because they are different, a C3.1 -1969 / C3.2 - 1976.
  13. 63 Corvette

    Looks great, nice work on this basic kit especially
  14. Lil' Red Corvettes

    Snake, that's cool, thanks for the tribute picture, yours all look great, even the diecast, you should build a C6!
  15. Lil' Red Corvettes

    Jim, thanks, the wheels are Pegasus Elite wheels and the deep rears are Pegasus aluminum sleeves that the smaller wheels slide into
