  1. Hello all, I am currently building a replica of a 2006 Ford Mustang Shelby GT. I have the Shelby GTH model but it has the incorrect hood. I am searching for the regular Mustang GT hood from the revell kit. If anyone can help me out, please let me know. Thanks, Evans
  2. Well I was getting some models together to build while the lovely state of NC is shut down. I ordered a 73 Carrera rs Porsche by fujimi on ebay. It arrived and much to my dismay the body was crushed. Im talking a pillars broken and cracks on the body. I guess it got mishandled in shipping. So im trying to find a new body for it. I figured this would be a good place to start. If anyone has one of these bodies please let me know so I can avoid throwing this kit in the parts bin. Thanks, Evans
  3. Ok, thanks for the ideas guys. I will give it a try today and see if I can get it done right.
  4. No the flares are already on the body and correct. I just have to fab the side skirts.
  5. For my next project I have decided to convert my 1/24 Revell Lamborghini Countach into the twin turbo concept. The only problem I have is the side skirts. I have tried a few things to attempt to create them with no avail. Any idea on what I could do to create these? Thanks, Evans
  6. Yes they did! The wire wheels that came with the kit were awful. I recieved the wire wheels and tires from a meme bed here on the forum. They are from the Tamiya Jaguar MK2 Saloon.
  7. I didnt really see a way to modify the mounting points but I'm sure if you spend a little time on it you could figure something out. Honestly I think your best bet with the kit is to use a two part epoxy and rig up a way to hold the body to the chassis. That's what I did and it worked quite well.
  8. I didn't even notice the mirrors. Thanks for the tip I'll have to do it.
  9. It is tamiya spray lacquer. I believe the number is ts-58.
  10. This is a kit from fujimi. I added a few period correct accessories to the car to make it look more custom. I added new wheels, antenna, and made a bigger exhaust from aluminum tubing. This is probably one of my favorite builds I’ve done so far. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks, Evans

    I accuired this kit from a friend. It is an Aoshima model. It is a simple kit and looks good done. I added the sleepy eyes to make it look a little different. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks, Evans
  12. The is the revell of Germany version of this kit. I’m not a real big fan of this car but it still is a great looking vehicle. I tried my best to make this model as detailed as possible. I don’t know how the color combo goes together but I think it works. The only problem with this model is fitting the body to the chassis. It has terrible fitment but if you manage to hold it together long enough and use a little jb weld it hold well. Let me know what you think. Thanks, Evans
  13. This is the original issue of this model I picked up at the Concours de Elegance at Amelia Island for a good price. This is a very cool and detailed model for it to be so old. Obviously fitment wasn’t too great but it came out nice in the end. I love the color I chose. Let me know what you think. Thanks, Evans
  14. This is the enthusiast model of the 911 Turbo from fujimi. Overall fitment isn’t too great but if you are patient you can really make a good looking detailed model of this awesome car. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks, Evans
  15. This is the snap-tire version of the 2017 Ford GT from Revell. For being such a simple kit, this model was actually really detailed. I’m looking forward to the release of the full detail kit from Tamiya. I have more photos that I’ll try to upload later because it’s not letting me upload them. Let me know what you think. Thanks, Evans
