  1. Thanks. I used the engine from the Deserter kit, it's just box stock, nothing special.
  2. Unfortunately Tony P's Cadillac doesn't get much screen time, so I have to guess at some of the details. I'm going with a white interior with black carpet. I have an extra interior from a Donks kit and I feel like the diamond tuck is appropriate. I also added a shifter to the column, I'm not really sure why Revell didn't include one.
  3. Funny you should mention that. I have a gas can I was thinking about casting so I could paint a couple red for fuel and a couple black for water.
  4. Thanks, unfortunately I didn't take any progress pictures of the rack.i just googled pictures of racks and bent some brass rod into a shape I liked and went from there. The ladder sides are made from solder, it was easier to get the bends I needed.
  5. I built this by combining the body and interior from the '66 Suburban kit and the chassis and drive train from the '84 GMC kit. They required some modifications to fit together, but went together pretty easily. I scratch built the ladder and roof rack. I'll continue to add stuff to the roof rack as I come across things that I think will look good.
  6. Thanks. Here's a picture of the kit when I first got it.
  7. Thanks, I got it from Page Resin.
  8. Nice, I have a '73 wagon I need to build.
  9. This is a resin kit of a '71 Impala Sport Coupe. The kit didn't come with windows or a steering wheel so I made the windows and I thought a chain steering wheel would fit the look of a '70s lowrider. The wheels are from a '70 Impala kit, the tires are from a Revell lowrider. The kit came with a chassis, but I had an extra one from a '76 Caprice that was easier to work with, so I used that. I painted the bumpers gloss black then used Molotow chrome. The paint is a '14 Mustang color.
  10. This is what I used. It's like Molotow chrome in that you can't touch it for a while or it will dull.
  11. I got a little bit done on Tony P's Cadillac. I took a yellow sharpie to some of the chrome to make it look gold. I also used a blue sharpie in the headlight bucket to simulate the HID headlights, and an orange sharpie for the turn signals. I used a molotow chrome pen on the rear axle, driveshaft and engine bay brace. More next time.
  12. It's done, but thanks.
  13. Can I still get in on this? If so I'd like to enter Tony P's Cadillac from Mystery Men. I'll be using Revell's Custom Cadillac Lowrider.
  14. That reminds me a lot of the die cast t bucket from Testors.
