    Thank you, The seat was a new experiment for me. I scaled some patterns on photoshop and just printed it out on regular paper, sprayed some glue on after sanding the seat and then applied it in two pieces. If I were to do it again I would figure out how to get the paper a little more wet to better lay around the bends but be careful! too wet and the ink runs. More spray glue might do it. I painted the edges with black to seal them and then dry rubbed some dirt powder to give it the "dirty used" look. Its simple but effective. I thought about decals but not sure how they would turn out. This method is far easier for me. Maybe someone here has a better method????? I would be interested in hearing any ideas if they do as I am always looking for new ideas as well.

    Thank you everyone!
  6. Well it is finally finished! Started with the Revell 65 Chevy step side. I used the cab, hood, firewall, seat and door panels, suspensions and parts of the frame, windshield and a few little do dads from the kit. I fabricated from scratch or on a computer and printed the following: Front turn signals, grill and letters, 305 V6 engine, V6 emblems on the hood, mirrors, dash board, rear small window insert, toolbox, entire bed, rear bumper, and 6 lug rims. Other mods include lengthening the frame, new pedal braces, emergency brake lever, steering wheel, raised the seat and made a seat cover, made a shifter, cb radio, antennas, and tailgate chains/ brackets. I am happy with it for the most part. Its not my best work but overall not bad. I go back in and redo the wipers as I dont like how they look. Most of you know I will offer the parts once I get a website put together. My focus right now is getting the 67-69 Ford grills finished and out to market. If you can't wait, I can do some limited sales if you PM me. Thanks for looking and of course comments are welcome!

    Very well executed! Your painting skills are excellent! Nice details and overall a very clean build!
  8. Small update! This is probably the last shot on the workbench for this one! I got the rest of the trim on the bed and cab, the chains on the tailgate, made a toolbox for it, and made some wheels as I found I did not have any 6 lug stock rims. All that is left is Weathering the white on the box sides, mirrors, antenna, engine bay, front bumper, wipers, and door handles. Hope you like it, thanks for following this slow build and thank you all for your positive feedback....see you under glass!

  11. 1/25th scale vintage gas pumps

    Maybe it was just one, it has been a while since I looked. All I remember was that I couldn't quite justify that much plus shipping. My diorama requires 7 of them and there was just no way. That is when I decided to build my own.

    Doozy has some awesome 1/24 scale pumps but at a cost at around $30 for two. I made my own from styrene and tin foil and "other" stuff and made them to light up.
  13. What did you get today? (Model Car Related Items)

    Picked up these at an antique store for $10-17 each. All were opened but complete and unstarted. The 65 Riviera and the Deserter were bought new at HL.

    Thanks Dave, much appreciated!
  15. A Better Grill

    Thanks guys and yes that was considered and attempted but they are just too thin and fragile to get a consistent product from my limited casting abilities. After making a mold and a dozen attempts, I only got 3 that made it out of the mold in one piece, so I scrapped that idea. I appreciate the considerations though!
