    Those tires were used in the 90's AMT Chevy C1500 and Ford F150 kits, and I was never a fan of them.

    This is an older build that I had packed away because I was planning on doing a bit more to it, but I found it recently and decided to just put it on the shelf as it is. It is a rebuild using the AMT C1500 stepside kit, and converted to a 4WD using parts from the AMT 80's GMC kit.

    Normal shots will be fine, I'm mainly just curious to see what comes in the kit.

    It appears the former thread on this subject was deleted for some reason. I had bumped it to ask if anyone who has the kit would be willing to post some pics of the contents, and the offer still stands.

    Fabulous paint job, and one of the colors I had yet to see on the 1/12th kit! Have any pics of the car you're replicating?

    Other than the 4wd wheels used on the 2wd version of the S10.

    My go-to paint for satin black is the generic stuff from Home Depot that is only like a buck per can. While the price is cheap, it goes on well and dries evenly.

    You need to go to their Shapeway page to order stuff, since that's who they have make it.

    It's a good kit, what are your plans for it?

    I'm in with an International Transtar 4300!

    I can't say much on the authenticity of everything, but as far as I know it builds up well and since you got the older kit, it has the nice extra parts and tires with lettering on them! It does not have parts for the RS version though, so if that was your plan, you'd have to scratch build those parts.

    I like to use the metallic silver Recollections brand markers from Micheals. Medium point seems to be the best balance between area and precision.

    Yes I know it has been about a month since I started this post, but work has been busy lately and I've finally had time to post my progress.
    First up is the body itself. I filled the holes in the firewall where the kit hinges would go, since I'm going to try and make something closer to the 1:1 vehicle. I also filled in the gaps on the rear for the tailgate hinges, filled in the kit spare-carrier holes, shaved the rear sidemarkers (since the '85 had them on the taillights), and filled in a major sinkmark that followed all around the rear wheel arches. Additionally, I filled some holes in the floor, and added some material to the inside walls, since they seemed too thin compared to the 1:1.

    Next is the rollbar. I used part of the kit rollbar (which is meant to be a late 70's style converted to a full cage) and added a piece in the middle to get it to the correct width. I have it clamped to the body to figure out the rear supports.

    The chassis had the pockets filled in where the kit leaf springs would mount, and I attached the skidplate and fuel tank.

    The rear axle had the tubes replaced with styrene tubing, and I created the brake backing plates (will create some drums a bit later).

    Finally, I filled in some holes on the engine (starter mounting holes and a mounting nub on the oil pan) and painted it gloss black. The transmission will be painted silver. I also drilled holes in the valve covers for the oil fill cap and pcv hoses, along with reamed out the valleys for where the mounting bolts would be.

    1/16 1985 Jeep CJ7
    For a while now I've had a Revell 1/16 Jeep Golden Hawk CJ7 kit in my stash, and so I've finally decided what I want to do with it.

    The kit is meant to be a 1979 (based on the copyright date), but will be built into a 1985 version. There are really only minor differences between the years, with the main things being lack of rear sidemarker lenses (attached to the taillights on later models), different seats and a dash pad, and lack of V8 on the newer model. Besides not using the kit decals, I'm going to be scratchbuilding different bumpers, filling in the sunroof holes in the hardtop, making a factory-style spare tire carrier, giving it a bit of a suspension lift, 3D printing some different wheels, and giving it a different engine.
    The engine and transmission I'll be using is a Chevy TPI 350 and T10 4-speed out of one of the 1/16 Camaro kits, which will be connected to the stock transfer case and axles.

    Is there going to be any optional themes or styles? Personally I think there's just too much white space with this new design.
