  1. When I was planning the build for my other '68 Cadillac http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/171623-68-cadillac-deville-convertible/#comment-2575330 I couldn't decide between 2 different styles. Luckily I remembered I has 2 in my stash, so I decided to build them both. This one was already built too, but not as badly as the other one, in fact, I liked the engine so I put it back in just as it was. And I remembered to get a before picture this time.
  2. That turned out great, nice job!
  3. This is the JoHan Boss man kit. When I got it, it was the definition of a glue bomb. It was built with way too much glue and not a drop of paint. I wish I had thought to get a before picture. I was able to get it apart without too much damage. I knew I wasn't going to be able to get the windshield out without destroying the windshield frame, so I cleaned it up as best I could and did paint and chrome with the windshield already installed. I lowered the suspension a bit and used wheels and tires from a Revell Monte Carlo SS kit.
  4. Thanks. The trim around the windows and rockers is BMF and the belt line and wheel well trim is a Molotow chrome pen.
  5. "Your old red Charger is there, but it's new, brand new." I built this from the Revell Foose kit. I sanded down the fender mounted turn signals to make it look more like a '66 and made a screen correct license plate. The movie car has spinner hubcaps, I don't have any, so the Magnum 500 wheels will have to do until I get my hands on some.
  6. I built this from the Revell kit. I redid the door trim to look more like a '59, I ordered the interior decals from Spotlight Hobbies, and I made some screen correct plates.

    Thanks. I didn't know that, I have a later release that I'm planning on making KARR with.

    Thanks. The kit I used to build K.I.T.T. was the old MPC kit.

    "I am the voice of the Knight Industries Two Thousand microprocessor...K.I.T.T for easy reference, KITT if you prefer." I bought this kit partially built years ago. When I finally decided to pull it out and rebuild it, I noticed that the interior was missing. I honestly can't remember if I got it that way, or if I took the interior out to paint it and misplaced it. Either way, I decided I'd make lemonade out of lemons and made some side windows, then blacked all the windows out. I think I remember an episode where all of KITT's windows were blacked out. Anyway, here's what I ended up with.
  10. I prepped and painted the parts from the other kit at the same time and they turned out fine, I have too many parts painted and subassemblies put together to swap colors now. I'm going to give it one more shot and see what happens.
  11. I am using lacquer, it's Duplicolor primer and paint. There's got to be something embedded in the plastic, that's the only variable.
  12. #15 I'm having trouble with the paint on the bed. This is my second attempt. Everything I've painted from the van kit is fine, it's just the truck parts that are giving me a hard time. If I can't figure it out, I'm not going to make it across the finish line this year.
  13. It looks great murdered out, nice job!
  14. Thanks. The wheels were great to work with. No clean up required. I painted them with a Molotow chrome pen.
