  1. Well, sheesh! I'm so used to seeing them relocated under the bed...
  2. I'm so excited for this kit! Great design, great kitbashing opportunities. I just went through the instructions online. Did anyone else notice the lack of a fuel tank? Kinda funny.
  3. No. I means that every other post will be "Why didn't the make it stock?"
  4. Definitely has a Factory Five feel to it. Looks great so far!
  5. Link to the On the Workbench thread. Here are the photos of our completed build. It won the "Black and Orange" mini-contest out our MCMA meeting on Sunday. Thanks to evilbenny for giving us the kit. Here's the Caped Crusader at the meeting:
  6. Thanks for all the kind words everyone. He's already started to think about the next build. His 7 yr old older brother is also. His next one will be more independent. Hopefully we can do a snap together or something so he can handle it all on his own. That is, if I can resist "helping", LOL.
  7. I started building a 1989 Batmobile with my 5 year old son. The kit was given to us by evilbenny, a fellow member of the Metroplex Car Modeler's Association (MCMA). The kit was missing the wheels and tires, which were generously supplied by some members of this forum. Thanks again to midknightprowler and afx for you help. Here's the kit: Here's what we've done so far - glued in the interior and painted the wheels: The boys like the gold-ish wheels shown on the side panel of the box, so we painted the wheels Model Master bronze and will black-wash it next. They don't want to paint anything, so it'll be faster. At one point I was scraping off some flash and my son said "Daddy, I don't want it to be too pretty" meaning I was taking too long, LOL. When we get ready to build he'll go get everything and carry it to the kitchen table, which is big enough for us to all have access to the kit while building. He's pretty motivated.
  8. Some final shots: I posted in Under Glass here.
  9. Getting Organized.

    You could also use a tackle box, there are a ton of different configurations...
  10. 32 Ford

    There is actually a Jag type IRS in the Revell 26 Sedan Delivery Kit, if you would rather kitbash it...
  11. How do I do THIS?

    Evergreen makes plastic in various shapes and sizes. It's pretty available in the US. You could also use Plastruct. You could also use pieces of sprue.
  12. 48 Chevy Aerosedan

    Looks great! I'd go with the Supremes, personally. Actually, I need to get a set of those for my Aerosedan.
  13. Can someone tell me what is the transmission that comes in the AMT Phantom Vickie kit? Thanks.
  14. Thanks for the info. I was going through my kits looking at which engines I wasn't planning to use, thinking about what might be good to back up the C5 and C6 LS's that I plan to swap into various projects. Would the transmissions from the 06 based Mustangs be good? They look pretty nice, detail wise and I don't plan to use those engines now that the Coyote 5.0 is out.
  15. So, it's not a good Trans to mate to an LS7?
  16. The next question is: where can I get a decent Crown Vic front suspension for the popular conversion?
  17. It's not the first time a manufacturer has mislabeled something. A 53 Chevy panel truck looks something like this (This is a 54): Again, I love the progress so far...
  18. I love the weathering, especially the roof. Not to be nit-picky, but this is sedan delivery, not a panel truck.
  19. I'm not a huge fan of the super duty trucks, but this kit is amazing! Great work so far!
  20. Can someone post photos of the actual wheels and tires?
  21. The Revell 64 fleetside and 65 Stepside Chevy Trucks have a decent set of staggered torque thrusts.
  22. Revell LaFerrari

    Hopefully Revell won't mess up the final stance of the kit like it did with the 458, and just about every other recent kit, most notably the '05 Mustang series.
  23. Gary, in order avoid the eventual shrinkage (Jerry, you didn't tell her about the shrinkage?!) associated with one-part fillers, you should use a 2 part catalyzed putty like Bondo or Evercoat.
  24. Which wheels do you want to use? The kit supplied steel wheels, or the kit supplied torque thrusts? The torque thrusts will be too wide for those AMT tires. FYI, the torque thrust wheels and tires are 2 different sizes. The smaller ones go in the front. In your photos above it looks like you have the smaller wheels on the back. Here's a photo of an in-progress build I have using that same chassis and wheels and tires: Also, you might need to remove the inner fender skirting. It's how most full sized truck guys get theirs to sit super low.
  25. 32 - ford sedan , from back in the day,

    My guess is the brakes are from Replicas and Miniatures of Maryland.
