  1. Revells alternomad question

    I wouldn't worry about the decals too much. There are just soooo many ways to decorate this monster right! Here's mine with some of "Donny's" skulls added for effect...
  2. Lincoln LIMO

    I keep expecting to see a swimming pool in the trunk. Nice job!
  3. Let's see some police cars

    Chesterfield County, VA Sheriff's Office and Fire Marshall...
  4. Let's see some police cars

    VA State Trooper -
  5. Christine trashed , FINISHED ! !

    Pick up this kit... It has a close approximation of the engine you need, and builds up nicely like this...
  6. Post pics of your fave long roof(wagon)

    Two of my recent longroofs... Alternomad... Cadillac Hearse
  7. Starsky and Hutch Gran Torino

    Part 2... Another fun build, but those stripes can be a royal pain.
  8. Starsky and Hutch Gran Torino

    Another easy build, this one I used ModelMaster Italian Red after spraying it with primer. This red is much better than the original mold.
  9. Herbie - The Love Bug!

    I also added more detail to the interior... Not a bad build, just wish the stickers were better.
  10. Herbie - The Love Bug!

    I added BMF to the body lines and hood area, then painted silver trim around the taillights.
  11. Herbie - The Love Bug!

    This is the Polar Lights build. The glue on the back of the racing stripes and "53" were bad, resulting in stickers that would not stay on. Good thing I scanned them in before using them, as I can now print them on decal paper! Pictures without the stickers...
  12. 68-69 revell dodge charger

    Pro Tip: If you buy both the 68 and 69 kits, you can swap the bodies in order to get a vinyl roof 68 or a hardtop 69. The only thing that would need to be altered are the front side turn signals, otherwise they are the same.
  13. Model car builders are cheapskates, right?

    Let's see: Jo-han Heavenly Hearse - $65 Jo-han Cadillac Ambulance - $60 Fujimi Toyota Supra "Hi-Mechanism" kit - $75 Mad Max Interceptor - $50 So somewhere around $50 ~ $75
  14. Monogram '69 Dodge 440 Six-Pack (Super Bee)

    Testors One-coats look great on these musclecars, and yours did great! One small thing, you might want to catch the bottom end of those "Superbee" decals before they curl out. Something like Micro-Set should tame them. Otherwise, awesome Mopar!
  15. Looks really nice! As a minor suggestion, get some thin sheet styrene, cut out some small rectangular pieces out of it, then glue them to the inside of your hardtop and paint them black. It will keep the top from bouncing around and allow it to sit better to the cab. Like this... And my tailgate has the same gap as well. Must be the nature of the kit. Great work!!!
