  1. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

    Back on the Charger! I finished the interior and chassis and got them assembled. I love this color! The wheels seem a little larger than I had expected, but I can live with it. I hope to finish the Charger today. More to come...

    Thanks Howard! No, the battery tie-down came with the battery.
  3. Bullitt '68 Ford Mustang GT

    Thank you everyone! I appreciate the nice comments! It's funny that as I look over this build, I am now finding little things that need touch ups and corrections. I will fix those items as I look over this model.
  4. Bullitt 1968 Ford Mustang GT

    I have finished my Bullitt Mustang and it is posted in Under Glass. I would like to thank all those who have taken the time to view and to comment on my WIP.
  5. Bullitt '68 Ford Mustang GT

    This is my Bullitt '68 Mustang painted with Highland Green Metallic by Scalefinishes with a Tamiya Semi-Gloss Black interior, wheels and tires from two Revell '32 Fords, headers from the Revell '68 Mustang GT 2+2, resin carburetor, seat belts buckles from Model Car Garage, wired engine, and a resin Optima battery.
  6. Bullitt 1968 Ford Mustang GT

    One of the things missing from this kit and from Marcos Cruz's Bullitt Mustang are brakes. They are clearly missing from Marcos' Bullitt and I decided to replicate these. The rear drum brakes I made from a couple of flat washers and drilled out the centers to fit over the wheels hubs. These will be painted with Tamiya X-18 Semi-Gloss Black paint. Since I am replacing the wheels and tires with front wheels and tires from two Revell '32 Fords, I kept the disc brakes and glued them to the wheel hubs. More to come...
  7. 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409

    The rules for building Box Stock in the Club Challenge state that I can correct any manufacturers defects and while the shape of the part has a slight taper to it, it is not really a manufacturers defect and therefore, cannot be altered. You really have to look at the part to see the taper and once painted, decaled and installed, the taper does not show.
  8. 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409

    Thank you Ray! The tapered canister was part of the kit and I can't change it. I have to use what's in the box. Thank you Michael, but I already knew that primer color can change the shade of your basecoat.
  9. 1961 Chevrolet Impala SS 409

    I got tired of polishing my Bullitt Mustang and the '70 Charger R/T, so I decided to start a little assembly of the 409 CID engine. One thing I didn't like about this engine was that the oil filter was moulded with the oil pan. I used a P/E saw and removed the oil filter. More to come...
  10. 1968 Bullitt Mustang

    You did a great job on your Bullitt Mustang, Steve!
  11. 1971 Dodge Charger

    This build is looking great! Keep going!
  12. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

    I set my dehydrator at 105 degrees for at least 4 hours. More depending on which paint I use.
  13. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

    Thank you David! There will be more to come!
  14. Bullitt 1968 Ford Mustang GT

    Douglas, I hope you can see that my Bullitt Mustang has been painted with Highland Green Metallic paint from Scalefinishes. Thanks for the tips!
  15. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

    With the paintbooth up and running this morning, I clearcoated the Charger. More to come...
