  1. Big, Bad Hemi Charger

    This one started off as the Revell F&F 70 Charger, but took on a new role as the famous Hustlin' Hemi Dart's bigger, supercharged brother. I have a thing for "what if" track cars. Anyway, aside from your standard extra detailing, mods are pretty sparse on this one. I'm one of those types that actually enjoys wiring, so a dual plug Hemi for my first Mopar muscle build was a no-brainer. MAD supplied the valve covers, distributors, and coils to make it happen. The alternator had to be moved to clear the new wiring setup, so a piece of plastic rod was used to extend the pulleys a bit and Detail Master's provided a new alternator and tensioner bracket. Harnesses were made from Tamiya tape colored with a sharpie and some homemade "buckles" were made using bits of plastic. The color is MM Hemi orange with Duplicolor clear and Valspar satin black interior. Slixx beautiful Hustlin' Hemi decals finish her up. Hope you like it and thanks for looking!
  2. Wow, yeah, I give up lol. Your work is seriously unbelievable.
  3. First finished build of the year, 1970 Hemi Cuda

    That's an odd color, but a really cool one. It really goes good with the black wheels.
  4. Plymouth Vip 1967 Twin turbo with U-haul trailer

    Awesome build! That's one mean looking engine
  5. 1967 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport 427

    Very nice!
  6. AMT 40 Ford Straight-liner

    Thank you. Yep, you "nailed" it. Don't mind me, too many adult beverages this evening.
  7. 70 Dodge Charger - New year update

    Thank you! No, I just popped it in there. I had a look at the box, and it does seem rather low, but it looks fine when you build it. It wouldn't be the first time Revell screwed up the box art lol.

    Thanks again guys!
  9. Six for 2018

    Here's my 2018 builds in a nutshell. I only managed to get six done this year, but the complexity of each build is higher than most I've done in previous years, so I'm pretty happy with that number. I'm slowly learning the value of quality over quantity lol
  10. 70 Dodge Charger - New year update

    Well my plan to get this one done by the end of 2018 didn't work out, but no big deal. Here's where I'm at now. Pics are kinda self explanatory, so I'll spare you the long write up.
  11. 2019 Revell (Germany)

    Same. The Deutz, Porsche, and MF that Heller just repoped are on my "stuff to buy after Christmas" list. Weathering heaven lol
  12. 70 Dodge Charger - New year update

    So here's where I'm at for today. Well, so far anyway. I'm trying to get this one wrapped up for the last build of 2018, so if I really grind on it and all goes well, I just may get this done and clog this post up over the next two days. Anyway, I got the engine done with the exception of the blower hat and linkage. I had to kick the belt forward a bit so the alternator would clear the dual distributors, so here's to hoping final assembly goes to plan. Otherwise, this one may be running without a fan shroud. Weight reduction, right? I also tried my hand at making a racing harness from strips of Tamiya tape and plastic strips. It doesn't look nearly as good as the photoetch stuff, but it should add a little interest to an interior that will probably be difficult to see anyway. Gotta love modeling on a tight budget lol.
  13. AMT 40 Ford Straight-liner

    Thanks guys! As always, very much appreciated!
  14. AMT 40 Ford Straight-liner

    Here's my take on the classic AMT 40 Ford coupe. I was given this kit for a club build in which we partner up with someone, then give them a kit from your stash to do themselves. I have a Revell 40 that's going to end up as a hotrod at some point, so I figured the drag option was the way to go with this one. This tool shows its age, with it's shallow engraving and simplified design, but it was still a very enjoyable build, with most complications being caused by myself as usual. Anyway, there isn't much to say about the build that can't be seen. The vast majority of the parts are straight from the kit, with the exceptions being a couple decals, wiring and plumbing, and the scoop that comes from Revell's 55 Chevy street machine. Paint is Duplicolor Sealer (to hide the orange plastic), Duplicolor White Primer, Duplicolor Toyota silver, MM Chrysler Yellow, and Testors Star Spangled Blue. Thanks for looking!
  15. If this is really their plan, that's very unfortunate. I was on the Revell doom and gloom train, but was very pleasantly surprised to see their new lineup under the new owners. Hopefully it'll work out the same way for Moebius. The new tools of off color subjects like Hudsons and such were undeniably great contributions. Now, hopefully I can still get the replacement bodies the guy I talked to has been searching the warehouse for over a year to find lol. Those Melrose Missile and International Prostar kits weren't exactly cheap.
