  1. I am not a truck builder but went out and purchased one at 75 dollars. Went to my club meeting last week and one of our model vendors had one for 50 and yes, I purchased it. They are very nice. Now if only I can have a million pictures of the 1/1 engine, it would make me very happy. Even ordered a nice P/E Detail Set for it.....
  2. Thank you guys, really had a blast putting this one together. It is an excellent kit!!!!
  3. Hi there fellas, long time don't see. This is a build of the Tamiya Datsun 240ZG. Paint is Scalefinishes Persimmon Red (factory color) with Testors Wet Look Clear. Plumbed and wired engine and a few other details here and there. Had a lot of fun building this one, very impressive and complete kit. Hope you guys like it!!!

  7. Got this baby done yesterday. Color is Scalefinishes Lexus Liquid Glue. Carbon fiber decals by Scalemotorsports as well as rims and tires. Just had to do very little altering of suspension to get it to look like this. Fun build!

  9. Something a I had put together a few years back. Brings back memories of the passion of the Puerto Rican car culture at the time.

  12. AMT 1968 Camaro for a friend. Not really crazy about these basic AMT kits but I just had to build this one for someone very deserving. Paint is simply Tamiya Bright Red, no clear. He also wanted a vinyl roof on it. Basically a box stock build.....

    Thank you guys, I didn´t find it finicky, the challenge was maintaining it upright while building it being that it only has two tires vs the four usually found on the regular car model builds. The plastic spokes were replaced with guitar string and hypodermic needles were used for the nipples that hold the spokes...

    Thank you and yes, the slotted mags are a new item from Fireball....
  15. These were the ones completed this year, gotta thank the pandemic a bit for the time at home.....
  16. Thanks, I use a Dremel disc, cut it at a certain depth and just twist it off. I will smooth out the end with the flat area of the disc itself.....
  17. Thank you my friend, yes, I just touched up the bare plastic with the Molotow marker. Thank you for the link, I use hypodermic needles for a lot of things, these are always very useful...
  18. Thank you, I used guitar string for the spokes, cut a pair at a time and replaced them with the string. I used hypodermic needles cut to lenght for the nipples. A little tedious but the results are pretty unique.....
  19. Decided to do something a little different and give myself a little break from the cars. Picked up this model at a model car show last November and thought it was a good idea to build it. First thing I did was to replace the ugly and way out of scale spokes on this thing. I used guitar string for this. I also decided not to use the ugly and also way out of scale brake, transmission and tachometer lines. Didn't have any orange color in my stash of paints so I just went ahead and mixed my own. Kind of a finicky kit but with a little patience, I think it turns out pretty decent....
