  1. Thanx guys! The comments are most welcomed. When it came to building this car I noticed a bunch of people building them "Stock" like they were ready for service. I didn't want to follow the crowd so I did it like I would have done a 1:1. Glad ya like, and thanx again for the comments.
  2. Thanx for the comments guys. Yeah now that Revell/Monogram has brought out the "Notchback" Monte the AeroCoupe is quickly becomin' like the 1:1. Rare and hard to find. I had a lot of fun rebuilding this car and it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. I have plently of other "Yard Sale" or "Flea Market" find builds planned in the future, so keep a look out for them. Thanx again.
  3. Thanx for the comments guys. If I didn't live clear across the country right now I would go attend the NNL. I'd have to spruce up the ole girl for the shindig too. I had a ton of fun building this one off custom and I have plenty of more to come in the future. Again Thanx guys.
  4. Ok, now that I have your attention and scratching your head. You're right, Dodge didn't produce such a vehicle after 1987/8. The Dodge Rampage was originally a FWD car based truck off the Omni O24/Charger (Shelby)/Horizon O24/Turismo 2 Dr Hatchback Platform to compete up against the likes of VW with their Rabbit Truck. Well I wanted to bring this truck into the next century. I am basing this one off the 300C/Charger/Magnum Platform and mostly the Magnum Wagon Car. So far I have chopped off the roof, reconstructed a new top and rear glass using bits from the original Magnum Roof (removing the sunroof) and rear liftgate. I've completed the conversion of making this into a Truck by grafting the bed of a Dodge Sidewinder into place under the new railings around the bed portion. Made new Sail Panels with a faux window. Scratchbuilt a new tailgate (the original was too curved) and got it hinged. The rear bumper is also boxed in and ready for some putty, plus the interior mods are completed. Enjoy!

  5. Well this is something you don't find everyday. I got this car, a resin hearse, and a casket off Ebay many years back. Well I'm not that big a fan of Ghostbusters, but have owned 2 1:1 Hearses in my life. So what do you do with a retired hearse that's been retired again? I turned mine into a Spookster! I lowered the car down 3 scale inches, threw on some 18's from the Black Force Slammer Kit, Opened the rear door for the casket, and handmade a vinyl top. Painted the interior Blood Red and the exterior Satin Black. Enjoy! More Pics here: http://s21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/Tumbler75/Completed%20Model%20Cars/1959%20Cadillac%20Hearse/
  6. This car started life as a Yard Sale find for $.50 cents. The paint was Cheap Spray Bomb Paint and it etched the plastic and glass. So I bought it and put it away for a later project. Well I was rummaging at a Flea Market and ran across a guy selling model parts minus bodies (used them for slot cars) so I bought the entire lot. Once was a Monte Carlo, had everything except the Body. Well I dug it out, found a resin hood I had ordered some time ago, and got out the parts box and set to work. The paint is Copper Orange MetalSpeck by DupliColor with 4 coats of clear. Interior is done in Semi, Flat, and Satin Black and is flocked. Engine is 65% scratchbuilt from parts box and sheet styrene. Exhaust is also scratchbuilt from the headers to their exit tips. Enjoy! More Pics here: http://s21.photobucket.com/albums/b278/Tum...SS%20AeroCoupe/
  7. This was one of the first builds I looked at when I joined here. All I can say is I'm absolutely BLOWN AWAY by the work put into this ride. Great job! This is a Best In Show and Best All Around Winner to me! Hope the best for you at NNL!! Keep those absolutely Gorgous Builds comin' through.
  8. I first off want to say Hello People! I'm new here at MCM and have seen a ton of great works here. Figured I'd join in on the fun. Name is Jason, currently residing in Kansas City, MO and I'm 33 yrs old. Well this car is a spin off of a 1:1 Concept Car I saw online. I like the style of the Mercury Cougar and when I saw it in convertible form I knew I had to build it. It took me 2 yrs of long hard work to graft parts from a 1992 Mustang to the Cougar and make it all blend together. It has a custom Scratchbuilt Front Bumper, Solder Exhaust Tips, Mustang Interior Tub Rear Half and Front Seats, 3.8L Supercharged Engine from the 92 T-Bird Kit, Wheels from defunct Satco America.
