  1. Wow! Beautiful design and superior execution. Too kool!
  2. Bluesmobile is my guess. I agree, it is glaringly absent in 1/25 scale. Here’s hoping!
  3. Wow, perfect channeled hot rod! The third image (profile view) has me drooling. So good!
  4. Straight outta the little pages! Too cool! Love your taillight/fin treatment. Such a clean build.
  5. Thanks, everyone! Glad you like the color combo. I was wavering, but stuck with my original plan from years ago. Zippi - I used some thinned Tamiya acrylic NATO Black, two coats. If the thinned black gets on the raised coils, it knocks down the shine nicely, giving a metal look to the parts.
  6. I just finished this yesterday. I started it five years ago when it was new but, for some reason, boxed it up just short of final assembly. One week of detail painting and assembly, and here she is. Beautiful kit - well engineered, nicely detailed, and it looks great when done. Go build one, if you haven’t already. Paint is Tamiya TS-15 Blue over gray primer, replicating 1:1 Washington Blue. Engine block is TS-75 Champagne Gold. Interior is Tamiya AS-15 Sand. I had originally planned blue steel wheels and caps, but just bought a re-released roadster and went with the Halibrands. The only part I added that wasn’t in the box was a Revell ‘40 Ford steering wheel painted Racing White. Thanks for looking!
  7. Same question with the 1/12 and 1/8 Revell vintage chopper kits - Rough Rider, Chain Gang, LA Street Chopper, etc.
  8. Thank you, James, for the superb coverage! The Rat Roaster conversion is very exciting. The worst part about the original was the interior, IMHO. And who doesn’t love a well-fitted Duvall? Great news.
  9. Very cool! Beautiful build. Last I knew, Model King Dave Burket was planning a ‘65 Dodge AWB…
  10. Great point about the parts layout, Craig. It would be more work to omit them than include them. Fingers crossed!
  11. And they use Ford advertising artwork for the boxes. Not always indicative of what’s inside the box.
  12. I don’t know. I emailed them about a replacement part, per the instruction manual.
  13. I picked one up this weekend at Michaels. (Thank you to the folks with that info!) However, the hood was up against the body’s A-pillars in the bag and it may have been too warm when packaged, causing it to spread. I have a replacement request in with Revell…
  14. WOW! Here’s hoping this is the case. And Gofer just released their parts pack featuring the other dragster frame. Good times.

    I got you covered. New set out of a parts kit. I’ll PM you…
  16. Just finished this project that was mothballed since 2008, until about two weeks ago. Revell Rough Rider kit from 1972 with an Imai Wild Chopper girder front end. House of Kolor Kandy Gold over a Duplicolor gold base. Taillight is from a 1/25 Lindberg ‘34 Ford pickup and the headlight is from a 1/25 Revell ‘32 coupe. Very fun, but challenging, build. On to the next… Thanks fer lookin’ In-progress photos here: https://public.fotki.com/fivets/my-model-motorcycles/revell-112-rough-ri/
  17. Mine is arriving today. I’m planning on using Testors Lacquer Emerald Green on it.
  18. Yeah, looks right! I’ll have to get to Hobby Lobby…
  19. Very cool! Thanks for setting this up and photographing. My favorite is the 99. 🙂
