JackieCheyenne added a topic in Under GlassMy two latest 1/25 scale Hot WheelsHere are my two latest Hot Wheels in 1/25 scale. First is the Custom AMX, done in "Spectraflame" Blue.
This was a builtup I picked up off the 'Bay.
Next is the GMC Motor Home. I NEVER thought I'd fill this hole but I got lucky and came up with a used but salvageable Hess promo.
I decided to do the rarer green enamel version as opposed to the orange. The green version substituted black for the blue on the orange. While the stripes are Pactra vinyl tape, the "sun" was cut from white decal sheet that was painted yellow and the "Palm Beach" and palm tree were hand painted.
It looks like the next one in this series will be the Monza 2+2, one of the last of the Redlines. I just got one off the 'Bay yesterday. I'll most likely do it in the rare lime green enamel.
I also took new photos of all that I've done so far. They're the latest additions to my Fotki folder.

JackieCheyenne added a topic in General69 Marauder X-100 is still in the works
The 69 Marauder X-100 that I started work on (what seems like) years ago is still a go. It's just in limbo at the moment. I had a person willing to do the photoetched emblems for the master but that deal never produced. The emblems are my biggest block right now. If anyone can help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it.
The 68 Park Lane convertible is also still in the works, needing the emblems as well. I still have quite a bit of grinding to do on the body. TKM must get their resin cheap as they use a ton of it. I've taken at least 1/8" off the entire inside of the body and it's still too thick for my liking. But both are still in the works. Just thought I'd let y'all know.

JackieCheyenne added a topic in GeneralNew person in the groupLooks like I finally found the right spot. Many here know me already but, for those that don't, my Name is Jackie and I've been building model cars for longer than any woman wants to admit to being alive....lol! I prefer showroom stock although I have been known to build a mild custom or two. If I had to say, my biggest achievement was scratch building a GMC RTS II transit bus that I made into a motor home conversion. Otherwise, I'm known for my vinyl tops and baseline conversions. You know, Trans Am to Esprit, Galaxie to Custom 500, GTX to Satellite, etc. I'm also known for my 1/25 scale Hot Wheels collection, which now numbers thirty-two with more always on the way. The two current projects are the Custom AMX and the GMC Motorhome. I have all but one of the original Sweet 16 Hot Wheels done in 1/25 scale and all of the Spoilers. The one original I'm missing is the Ford J car. I'm always willing to share my tricks, give advise or, if I have the parts, share them as well.
