  1. Just for fun 48 Ford

    Always thought this was a cool car when the movie first came out, so when my wife got me the kit for Christmas, I just had to build it. Love the decals. Done in Duplicolor Competition White. Now if I could only find a scale Olivia Newton John in those black leathers!!! Only addition was the BMF. Comments welcome.

  5. First for 19

    I used evergreen strips for both the trim and the "seams" item #102. I sanded the "seams" down as well as the trim. I used Tamiya flat white as a base on the roof. After that dried I shot the roof with Tamiya gloss white from a distance, maybe 18-24 inches away. This gave me a splattering effect. After that dried another coat of flat white. I cant take all the credit. I searched this on this board and found this method. Thanks for the comments and hope it helps.
  6. First for 19

    The Revell 66 GTO built with my first ever vinyl top attempt. MCW Mist Blue Metallic 6509 was used. The engine is wired with MAD distributor.

  13. Couple of completions before the new year

    Just finished these, probably the last for 2018. the 62 Buick done in Duplicolor Silver. Right from the box with plug wires. The 69 Dart is painted Electric Blue from MCW. Wheels and poverty caps from Fireball, tires from the AMT parts pack. Thanks for looking.
  14. Were these issed kits or kitbashed?

    I saw this picture on another model car web site and thought the models were really cool and be a hoot to build. I tried finding a listing for them in the Modell Car Directory, with no luck. The Little Tub looks like it could be from the Red Chariot kit, the Little Drag looks like it has parts from the Green Hornet, while the Little Rod possibly from the Little T? Any help?
  15. 69 Shelby Convertible
