  1. MPC 79 Nova Challange

    I have built models to represent all the cars I've owned and all the models went with the real cars when I sold them... here is my latest Nova and it's 1/25th scale replica...
  2. MPC 79 Nova Challange

    I'm not aware of AMT having a police car version of the 75-79 Nova. I know the MPC version had the Squad Rod...but the kit you have built here is the AMT. I can tell because the proportions aren't correct to the 1.1. I have titled and insured 18 of these Novas and parted out atleast 30... I love the cars myself... my favorite bodystyle... The MPC 4th gen nova is the better one, although I have built dozens of the AMT kits too.
  3. MPC 79 Nova Challange

    That looks like a 78... Looks good, nice build.
  4. MPC 79 Nova Challange

    I want to build the concept Hurst Edition GTO can you imagine what effect this baby would've had on that era?
  5. MPC 79 Nova Challange

    The major thing that has to be done is to seperate the engine bay (wheelwells and firewall) from the interior floor that will allow you to use the MPC interior...
  6. It's not mine, it belongs to a member of the local club I'm in. He's got like 10 of those ultra rare 65 chevelle kits. And he does some pretty weird stuff so I wouldn't put it past him... lol! I'm not even exaggerating either This guy has more than 6,000 kits in his bacement... it looks like a warehouse full of models! here is proof of the Chevelles!
  7. I'm quite embarrassed to say that I haven't been able to get any model car work accomplished for awhile. Yesterday was the club meet and the first time in a month since l touched a model. I gotta get back on the horse. lol! No excuses but I currently have my house listed for sale and with all the small repair projects and cleaning up, just been too busy with goings on around here... Here is what I dug out and will try to get back on before the month's end... with any luck, thanks guys... Also letting my fellow club menbers down isn't the norm for me but they are still busy building and that inspires me...
  8. Dang! I thought I was bad... Oh wait I am just as bad...😁... I vote on the Olds Rallye 350 also... That's a nice Phantom build ya got going... MOF, all those stalled builds will be nice when finished...
  9. This Guy built a Prostreet car using part of the Max Rat chassis. It was in a collection I got that was built in the early 90's, shelved, and it appears to have collected dust for 20 years. I forgot that It was a build up. I thought it was a stalled project... I immediately disassembled it and cleaned everything up. I'm excited to see yours come to life... I've had a few of these over the years, the Red Malibu was the other issue... I hear Revell is going to Re-issue the kit soon, so I look forward to seeing it molded in white for the first time... Hmmm?... now I might have to paint this one white...🤔
  10. That sounds cool! I have one that was started in the 80's... It came to me in a collection. I already undid all his work but I been wanting to get it out and do my thing to it. I'll wait to see what you do to yours...
  11. Volvo 850 Turbo Wagon

    Soak it in hot water to soften up the styrene... That may get the pillers back in shape? It's a neat kit, wagons are cool no matter what brand.☺
  12. Hee! Hee! Hee! Hi, I'm Disco and I too am powerless over styrene... Thanks for sharing... I'm probably gonna start with my 55 Ford chopped top, Chevy powered, BBQ Tailgate Hot Rod. It has its own Workbench thread in the Truck section. I'll be adding updates there too.
  13. Lol! I believe Snake has here with this thread! I'm glad I'm not alone... I just wished I had the stalled builds that I've gotten rid of over the years (probably 100).☹
  14. I spent some time sorting out and picking my next Stalled projects for the BOYD Round 3 challenge. I have 7 or 8 choices to get back to work on. I know I have a problem but seriously, I am getting help for it. 😁
