    Custom 68 Charger RestoMod
  2. Studebaker Atlantic custom concept

    Wow! so cool, great design and workmanship
  3. Fantastic build, the 67 Pontiac's are in my opinion the best looking of all the years, your Bonny looks perfect, a great addition to your collection.
  4. Well done! Outstanding build and nicely detailed
  5. Post pics of your fave paint jobs!

    Custom C7 Stingray blended with C3 styling. Duplicolor Bahama Blue with several polished clear coats.
  6. I love Corvettes and when the new generation C7 came out in 2014 I liked but not a fan of the taillights. I decided to customize one to have the classic round C3 styling and went as far to change the rear window to the original "sail-panel" rear window. Lots of modifications including a completely new nose and grafted an L88 hood. Also filled in one of the three vents in the fenders, smoothed out the hip line and added rear wheel flares and grafted rear bumperettes like the C3's have. Some build pics show some of the major bodywork I did. Paint is Duplicolor Bahama Blue Metallic. Comparison to a "stock" C7
  7. Eldora Low 1970 Custom Cadillac

    Very nice custom. I can see all the work you did and compliment you on a piece of art you've created
  8. 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!
  9. 68 Cougar GT

    wow! beautiful build
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. AMT 1968 Mercury Cougar XR-7 GT, 390 4-speed.

    Excellent builds, well done especially on the Cougar, love it!
  13. 1/25 Tribute Hot Wheels Custom Camaro

    Thanks, yes the AMT 68 kit, actually not a bad kit overall
  14. 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
