  1. I built this one box stock 30 some years ago when it first came out. The testors enamel paint has held up good over the years. I use meguiar’s quick wax spray with a micro fiber towel to clean the dust off them. These revell thunder bolts are one of the finest super stock’s to come out of a box. happy Father’s Day everyone and as always thanks for looking. Mike
  2. A nice job on a great kit that has a lot of possibilities. The paint color is killer.
  3. I constructed this one from a Fremont resin body an amt 33 Willy’s, and a amt parts pack hemi. The wheels came from the parts box. The color is testors Daytona yellow lacquer, and the decals are by Fremont. Oh yeah the injector scoop is from revell’s Tony Nancy kit As always thanks for checking it out mike
  4. WOW what a neat little altered rod cool color combo
  5. Actually the decals went on with no fuss thanks for the nice complement
  6. The decals came with the resin body from mcw paint and resins. I would like to do a book some time. I have a lot more to do. Thanks for all your nice feedback
  7. This is mostly a out of the box mpc 1969 barracuda. It has the following modifications. amt blue streak slicks parts box wheels the engine is from the kit with the missing super stock hemi parts from my stash of mopar parts. The headers are made from solder and aluminum tubing paint is tamyia and decals are slixx there are a lot of different aftermarket decals available for this kit, and converting them into a super stocker is fairly easy to do. as always thanks for looking,and all the nice complements, Mike
  8. Nice clean build I really like the Matt primer finish. Very cool 😎
  9. I built this one from a mcw resin body and decal set. The chassis, front and back glass is from a salvaged amt 65 gto. The Z-11 427 engine is from the amt 62 super stock bel air along with the front and back wheels. The pie crust slicks are amt parts pack. The dash, steering wheel, tac, and shifter came from amt’s 1965 Elcamino. The roll bar is made from 0.80 styrene rod. It would be really nice to see this produced as a amt kit aside from the body all the parts are amt. which was a amt body originally. This is a great match race car from a time Chevy driver’s we’re stuck with a out dated big block, to do battle with the hemi mopars , and hi reving 427 ford fe motors. Malcolm Durham was one of the true early heroes of drag racing a Chevy man to the end.
  10. Outstanding job the tamyia light blue pearl is the joint.
  11. Box stock amt 1959 Elcamino with tamyia light blue pearl paint, parts pack white wall slicks, and Smp decals make a cool looking stocker. My only fit issue is the air cleaner interfeares with the hood. In the future I might file down the carburetors to adjust the fit. I painted the chassis white as that was a pretty common custom trick back then. I have a 1:1 60 Elcamino with remnants of white paint on it.
  12. Thanks my it’s my favorite out of the two, and it’s such a easy conversion
  13. Yea I know what you mean about the decal sharpness. The decals on the bel air are kit decals thirty years ago slixx was just getting started. From what I understand they subcontracted out the decal printing. I think some of their sheets are better then others. Not so much with the resolution but with the way they respond to setting solutions. Some crack and others soften, and settle right down. Right now I’m just glad to have all these choices from the different decal makers. Even with the difference in quality it’s way better than that time when all we had was Fred caddy decals and snail male.
