    Looks like the whole stripe set for a normal 442's in there, all in all two entire versions in one! Still wish they'd stop with the metal wheel supports, but ah well.

    Decal sheet finally came in today so was finally able to finish it up!


    Now just gotta wait for a day when it ain't raining for some decent outdoor pictures.

    Nah, it's too much effort to saw out some panels and replace 'em and I don't particularly wanna just paint 'em on, even though they are truly what makes this edition unique. The decals should be here tomorrow but as of now it's almost completed, just missing the Marlboro badges.

    '91 GMC Syclone Marlboro Edition
    I've completed the 1992 kit of the Syclone a few years ago and wanted to make a Sonoma GT(or a Typhoon, but lost the eBay sale of the resin body) version for funsies but then I found out about the decal sheet in the 2010 re-release having all the stripes for the Marlboro edition, just minus the logos. So I tinkered up a decal sheet, which I had already mostly done for the Typhoon or the Sonoma and figured I'd get started! (Also, I know it's technically a pick up truck but... it has the acceleration to beat era appropriate Corvettes, Porsches and even Ferrari's, plus the dang thing could only hold 500 pounds in the back, even a Toyota Camry could tow that much in the backseats and trunk. So, specifics! D:)
    So far I've wired up the engine, build the chassis and detailed the interior and working on the body as we speak. Using the five spokes from a '94 Impala SS to get nicer blacked out wheels, given the real version has these little Boyd Coddington wheels.


    Plus the little decal sheet I designed for it(them):

    Awh maaannn... genuinely had some hope set on the '68 Cougar, buuummmmer. Shouldve curbed that enthusiasm :c

    Any <1969 Cougar model, updated and all... I'd give an arm and a friggin' leg for that.
  7. echoxrayniner added a post in a topic New kit tool to break cover at this Sunday's NNL Motor City?   

    I'mma try and curb my own enthusiasm as... well, apparently there's ****-all desire for late seventies, early eighties shadow-of-their-former-selves muscle cars(or at least, seemingly), but if there's a '70-'76 Ranchero, '75-'76 Grand Am or dare I say, Can Am, or even as much as a simple, dull late seventies Regal, I'd literally be screaming joy off rooftops. The annuals from MPC back in the day, even though they were objectively quite balls, still make for nice time pieces.
    Hell coming to think of it, wouldn't even be opposed to some proper kitted new gen Ford/Chevy/Dodges.

    Oh definitely! I'm just awaiting the print itself to see if the color came through correctly before pawning off sets, don't wanna half-cock it but if all goes well they should be ready by the end of the month. Also if there's requests and/or suggestions, lemme know!
  9. echoxrayniner added a post in a topic 1984 Hurst Cutlass decals   

    I'm actually in the middle of working on a sheet with the inverted scheme, edited grille decal, Hurst/Olds logos without the 15th Anniversary, single bar reverse lights and Olds logos for the tail lamps and some non-vanity 1984 license plates. You'll need the original 1983 sheet for the side-marker lights, Oldsmobile front bumper logo and dashboard though.
    Edit: 
    Here's the raw sheet so far, smoothing the lines out as we speak.

    '83 Chevrolet Citation X-11
    Earlier this year I bought the 2002 re-release of the Citation which I intended to build mostly cause... it's such a nice little timepiece of a terrible past, but for some reason it just ended up getting lost in the mail, so I ponied up another 40 bucks to buy a second one and ended up making a '80 Citation X-11 with it. Then suddenly three months after, the original arrives after all. They're good little kits even with the super odd lowrider choice(seriously, who in the absolute hell would drive a early eighties rust-coffin AND turn it into a lowrider? All the trim would pop off like Mr. Potato Head parts upon the first bounce!). A lot better than the annual dredges MPC was shoving out the door in the same era.
    Figured I'd give the bumpers the body color, makes it look somewhat sportier in my opinion. And stole some Cowl Injection decals from a Chevelle kit(which happen to be same shade of gold as the X-11 decals, huzzah!) to mimic the High-Output V6 emblem there normally would be.

    I always kinda go at it hamfisted: I drench it in satin black and just rub the excess away from the top layers with my thumb or one of those little foam blocks people use to apply makeup (stole it from the girlfriend, works wonders).

    Edit: Yep there are, sorry I misread and thought of the little hood pins and not the actual hinges, bein' a dummy D:

    Whoops, Green Go's the one! Had a feeling I had the name wrong, thanks for the correction!
  15. echoxrayniner added a post in a topic 1970 Dodge Charger R/T 426 HEMI   

    Thanks! I like vinyl tops in most cases but for some reason, on Chargers and Chevy Camaros especially, I love the ones without the vinyl tops on 'em. The shape and the color pop out so much more, to me at least.
