    Therapy '66 Ford Fairlane
    This is a commission build I did over last summer for a gentleman's 50th birthday. The Malibu in some of the pics is also a commission build I did for this guys friend. Both of the real cars travel to various shows in New England so, if you see them around you may see the models with them. Feel free to ask them about the builds. It's a cool story. Anyway, on to the model. I based it on AMT's '66 Fairlane 427. I notched the rear bumper and made custom exhaust. I modified the rocker moldings and added wheels and tires from Revell's '62 Chevy kit. I also photo reduced the plates and side emblems. I also made a custom front bench seat using the rear seat from a donor kit. The paint is a custom match of Acapulco Blue acrylic enamel. First pic is the real car this is modeled after. All in all, it was a fun build. Would love to do one for myself someday.

    Thanks J
    They are the reissue dodge lancer hubcaps from Modelhaus. Sadly you may not be able to get them from there for a long time as they have shut down their web site last I checked till further notice as they are swamped with orders. May find a set on ebay or a local model show.

    Thanks everybody! Carrucha here ya go. This was a mock up... I decided to go a bit different with the seats. Tired of red and black.

    Mack The Knife
    Just finished this last night. I call it "Mack The Knife". Based on Revell's '57 Chevy Ragtop and inspired by a real one I had seen at Lead East a couple of years ago. Very fun kit to build. It is Tamiya White with red black and white interior. The top is krylons flat white. the caps are from Modelhaus and the spots are parts box finds.

    "Society's Child" 67 Chevy Impala
    Finally got this done in time for NNL East this year. Up till that point it sat in a box 3/4's of the way finished. I had a real hard time with the fit of the windshield. After many attemps I gave up, till one night when I was in a mood, I said to myself, self lets do this!
    Surprisingly In my 1st attempt proved to be the right move. I finished the car the next day.
    It is basically built out of the box with the only addition of the wheels which were parts box finds slid into hand painted white wall tires. The Paint is Dupli-color Champagne with black and white interior.

    Wicked 66 Malibu
    Just finished this build last week for a friend of mine. It is base on a real car that they love. I used the 66 Malibu from Lindberg and added a few features to make it as close as possible to it's 1:1 model. One of which was adding the 3" cowl inducted hood scoop over the stock ports as well as removing all scripts to make way for the P.E. Replacements. The wheels are from Fujimi with parts box disc brakes. Paint is Krylon Maroon Fusion polished out.
    Overall this was a nice kit to build. I have plans on doing one for myself someday.
