  3. 1965 Corvette Jump Start with More Pictures

    I would be interested in popping a mold off of one of your spare hoods. It looks like the AMT hood to me; as does your yellow Vette. Am I correct here? You can PM me or e-mail me at lowcab36@epix.net. I dig your roadster by the way! Ed
  4. Carl Casper`s : Phonebooth: Finished Pictures

    I was going to say exactly the same thing! You have really blown me away with this build; and not just because I like the subject matter! This needs to be shown to anyone who thinks that model cars are not an art form!
  5. 1/24 Monogram Blue Bandito '29 Ford Street Rod

    Just to clear things up for anyone that comes across this thread again. This IS an original issue Blue Beetle that I built a number of years ago. I simply polished the bare plastic out rather than paint the body because I liked the color so much; and wanted to stay more true to the kit. While not being 100% faithful to the box art; I could not get past the parts that were painted red in the artwork..........it just goes against anything tasteful in my mind. Other than picking out some minor details (like the carbs, firewall, steering wheel, etc.) with some brush detailing, the only thing else I did was to swap out the front wheels and taller kit white wall tires for the front mag wheels/tires from the Monogram Little Coffin.......a sister kit. The decals in my original kit were no longer useable; so I had Greg Holland (previously mentioned here) make new ones based on my originals (if I recall correctly.....it has been around 7 years)...............and they went on flawlessly!

  7. New tuck'n roll interiors

    If anyone would like to snag another one of these interiors while I still have some left; or has not been able to spare the funds I would be willing to do some horse trading for any of the kits listed below. I know that a few of the kits are worth more than the 'average' kit; so I would be willing to work something out in that event. I thought this way I might be able to help some of you out; and we can both make out. AMT ’69 Chevelle SS (early issues 2212, 6567, 6202, or older) AMT ’62 Impala convertible AMT ’69 Hurst Olds AMT ’70 Corvette (kit #6218) AMT ’70 Super bee (stock version…….#6117 or latest box art issue) AMT ’68 Road Runner (kit #6515) AMT ’70 Chevelle (kit #8940 or older) AMT ’72 Chevelle (older the better) AMT ’67 Mustang fastback (stock issue) AMT ’68 Shelby GT500 Mustang (#6541) AMT ’65 Mustang fastback AMT ’66 Nova AMT ’62 Impala Bel Air (#8716) AMT ’67 Fairlane (not the new tooled ’66 427 or GTA) Revell ’68 Hurst Hemi Dart Revell ’67 GTX Revell ’69 Baldwin Motion Corvette Revell ’70 ½ Baldwin Motion Camaro Revell ’62 Corvette (stock issue) Revell ’69 Z28 Camaro Pro Modeler ’59 Corvette MPC ’67 GTO (older issue molded in blue #6318 or #1-0730) MPC ’70 GTO MPC ’69 Charger 500 (#6284) Johan ’70 Olds Cutlass Johan ’69 Road Runner

    Thanks Mike! One thing I just noticed the other day is that there is a slight fitment issue with the mounting tabs on the front seat for the '57 Chevy interior. My molds are getting older; and the plug for the front seat in both molds must be flexing just enough to allow the width between the mounting tabs to become a hair shorter. I think I may have found a remedy for that. Basically, the front seat won't drop right into the mounting holes in the kit supplied floor pan now. So, you will either need to open up the slots in the floor pan a hair on each side; sand the mounting tabs down (on the inside surface), or remove them from the bottom of the seat all together. Other than that, I cannot see any other issues with the front seat. I just thought I would let you guys know what I discovered so you didn't think I goofed up some how! LOL!
  9. Are these exact wheels available in resin?

    I cast these rear 15" Americans; which I thought looked the same as the ones you are after; but they might not be exact.....hard to tell from the tiny photo you posted. These are the rears in the AMT '63 Corvette kit; and have the 'bead' around the edge of the rim. They do not come plated; and I removed the axle post in order to make an open pour mold of them rather than a 2-part mold to keep the cost down. Shoot me a PM if you are interested in them. The ones pictured below were the originals before I used them to make the mold. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    I appreciate the support guys! If anyone gets to building something with these interiors done up I would love to see some photos!

    The one thing I like about pinning the door handles and window cranks is that it makes it easier to paint them. I can brush a coat of Testors gloss black on them and let them sit overnight before brushing two coats of Alclad on them. Any more than that and they lose the chrome look.
  12. New tuck'n roll interiors

    I just thought I would show you guys (who have purchased interiors from me) how I attach the door handles and window cranks to the door panels. The photos here show a personal build ('40 Ford coupe) that I have slowly been working on for years; but the method would be the same. I also thinned out the door handles and window cranks to make them look more accurate; and stand off of the door panels. Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki Hosted on Fotki

    My old web site is no longer up; but you can e-mail me for a link to a temporary site I have up; and my Fotki albums. lowcab36@epix.net
  14. New tuck'n roll interiors

    Thanks for the kind words guys! At this point I have around 5 or 6 of each interior left in stock; and I do not think that the molds will hold out for too much longer. They are decent right now; but I wanted to give anyone who might still be on the fence a heads up in case they wait too long. I will probably cast a few more up and see where things stand. I made the molds back in 2014 so I can't complain.

    I am sorry to say that the '50 Olds interior has been off-line for over a year now....maybe two; and I just sold the last two I had from my personal 'stash'! LOL!
