  5. Hi Guys ! Here I would like to introduce you to my Cadillac Escalade. The model is by Revell USA in 1:25 scale. A nice construction kit, but in which the engine is shown only from below in the bottom plate. There are decals for different types of decorative stiffeners, the attachment requires patience. In addition, the kit has two different sets of wheels. Greetings to all from Jan
  6. Movin On Kenworth Hello dear colleagues ! Today I want to introduce my version of the Movin On Truck. In the 1970s, the US series "Movin On" was on television, and the series was about a trucker who had some adventures with his truck on the road, starring Tom Atkins. I painted my Kenworth Colobrigreen Metallic, then applied the decals and sealed with acrylic gloss clearcoat. I have also made a few modifications. At the front of the bumper the towing eye was equipped with the bolt, the mudguards are with mudflaps from a piece of bicycle hose, on the right side of the frame I have a small storage box with kick attached, as well as a handle on the sleeping cabin. On the frame at the holder of the leads for the Trailor are a few Riffelsteel. I hope you like it and I look forward to your comments. Greetings from Jan

  9. Lead Sleds, Top Chop, 49` Mercury Hi guys ! Tidied up the attic a few days ago, found a few Mercurys that I once built more than 30 years ago. These are 2 AMT Mercurys in 1:25 scale. At that time I had built the two with roofing (Topchop). Still with patina from the long camps. Greetings from Jan
  10. Kenworth Tanker / Monogram / AMT Hello friends ! Today I'd like to introduce you to my recently completed Kenworth tanker truck. The tractor is the Kenworth Aerodyne Snap Kit in 1:25. Matching the AMT tank semi-trailer to the same scale. In the Kenworth I have also made a sun visor, and an insect deflector on the hood. Mudflaps from an old bicycle tube were cut from the front and attached to the fenders. On the trailer there is a lot more modifications done. The tank was covered with chrome adhesive foil from the sauna area. There were still long front fenders mounted, as it is regulation in the US. I have seen these additional fenders on every tanker during my travels to the USA. They are designed to protect against whirling stones from the tractor. A second ladder has been added to the front right side. There are then the red-white reflector strips have been attached. The filling fittings at the pump were provided with a protective box and a tool box to be opened. The tanker has gotten the logo of Union 76 on the ladder at the back. In addition, I have some homemade decals attached. The semi-trailer I built more than 3 years ago, had not yet the right tractor. Have fun watching . Greetings from Jan

  13. US Cars , AMC , Pacer Wagon ,Amt 1:25 US Cars, AMC, Pacer Wagon, AMT 1:25 Hi Guys! Today I want to show you a Pacer. The model is the AMC Pacer Wagon from AMT. The model is with the flat bonnet. I then combined the model with the hood of the `normal Pacer kit to represent the Pacer Wagon of my friend. More than 30 years ago, in the late 1980s, we were on the road here in Germany for a lot of American car meetings. Cologne, Hanover, Bremen, Osnabrück, Bielefeld were just some of them. Back then we were out at least once a month in the summer months and had a lot of fun and then saw beautiful American cars. The model was additionally provided by me with Plastiksheet strips, so as to represent the equipment variant Woody. Have fun watching and greetings to All by Jan

  16. Hi Folks ! Thank you for the compliments . The paintjob first was the black body . After drying , i taped it . The roof and the trunk has silver spray coat ( acryllic ) , after drying again , i started to do the lines by covering with tape. After this i use an airbrush for the different colors.

  20. US Cars AMT 1: 2565 Pontiac Grand Slam in lowrider style Hi Guys ! After some time and 2 hospital visits followed by rehab for 2 new knee joints, I'll meet again to introduce something new. It is the AMT kit P65 `Pontiac Grand Slam. I have tried something new in the model. The paint in a nail polish that was diluted by me so far that you could inject it. Another effect varnish. Over it then several layers of clear coat. The roof was first painted with clear coat, then applied to the still wet clearcoat a carrier film with the Rainbowflitter. After about 10 minutes, I pulled off the film again, there were already some parts of the clear coat dry and it was this zebra effect. I then blackened the empty sections with a brush and sealed them with clear lacquer. I look forward to your comments. Greetings from Jan
