    1977 Dodge Monaco 4 door
    Here is one that I posted a very long time ago in the work bench section. This one I could not get the hood to set right but over all was a fun build. I will say there are a few things I will correct when I build the next one like the gap in the inner fenders where you can see the tires through the gap. Enjoy!

    The chassis was a Dodge product of some type. I lean towards the possibility of it being from a 1970 Coronet. It was under a built 66 Charger I bought so I am not sure. The wheels were parts box and I am not sure what kit they are originally from. I wish I knew. Oh and as far as the blackwash on the grille, I did it 7 times and was never happy with it on this car. The grille is so shallow in detail molding that I'm struggling with this one.

    1970 Monte Carlo Pro Street
    Hey everyone! This is mainly a parts box build up. I started out with the Fast and Furious Monte Carlo and modified a pro street chassis. I had to work the body in the blind spots a lot to allow the tubs as well. It has the kit 454 engine. has a little aftermarket like Detail Master ignition wires, distributor, and air cleaner. The paint is Testors Lacquer one shot "Mythical Maroon" with wet look clear coat. I hope you like it. I had fun as I normally do not do pro street cars.

    Hello friends
    Hey everyone. It's been a long time since I've posted here. Not sure why. A lot had to do with my life having a few changes that were out of my hands. Some included not building much. I am back into the swing of things and even have a couple things done. I want to say sorry to all the community builds that I was in and never finished. I think there were a few I never started for that matter. I just wanted to say hi to the people that know me and also a hello to anyone new. I even had to figure out Photobucket again as it's been a long time since I've used it
    Anyway, Off to post one of my new creations Under Glass.

  6. Railfreak78 added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    Here is my score from the Desert Scale Classic show. All built ups cost me about $10 Found 2 Nissan trucks that are the body style of my Pathfinder. I traded a drag car for the Jeff Gordon autograph and clock. My buddy hooked me up with the Pegasus wheels. One of my cars was picked for the MCM photo op and I hope it makes it. I also brought home some hardware for Ecto-1a.

  8. Railfreak78 added a post in a topic Does Plug Wire Color Really Matter?   

    I use yellow on older cars for the idea of Accel wires. Someone else said they used them a lot and me too. It's all I used on V8 engines. Plus Mallory and MSD use red. Some use blue. I agree only factory stock is plain jane grey or black.

    Jonathan I like your bike. I would say in my opinion, If your going to detail the clutch and throttle cables, you should at least give it spark plug wires. The rest looks great! I love how you made the seat look. Nice work!

    Just thinking about it eh? Hey Danno! Miss ya bud. See you tomorrow!
  11. Railfreak78 added a post in a topic 1988 Budweiser Monte Carlo   

    Great looking Monte Carlos. The Bud ones that Terry and Darrell drove were some of my favorites even though I don't like the Beer. When I build one I'll be happy if it comes out half as good as yours

    Desert Scale Classic
    I'm excited for tomorrow's show. I am not taking much as I have not been able to build a lot this year. My job takes me 70 miles a day in rush hour and my wife has a lot of health issues that require me doing most of the running around lately. I have a couple I'll take but I really just want to go hang out with fellow modelers. Last year a lot of you guys showed up from all over which was really cool to meet you. I hope to see a lot of you again. Anyway happy modeling!
