  1. Looking for 1/16 scale tires & wheels

    3D Specialties on Shapeways also has 1/16 wheels. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/3d-model-specialties?section=1%2F16+Scale&s=0 And forward resin on ebay has some. I highly recommend his, the casts are better than most found in kits. I used a set of his 1/12 on my camaro. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Resin-1-16-Scale-Cragar-S-S-Mag-Wheels-Standard-Street-Depth/264115507618?hash=item3d7e82d1a2:g:iHMAAOSwBRNbwLqs https://www.ebay.com/itm/Resin-1-16-Scale-15-Steel-Wheels-Front-Rear-Set-Standard-Street-Depth/323400892001?hash=item4b4c31fe61:g:IGEAAOSwHnFVzokl Also watch WalMart for sales on diecast, you can sometimes pick up a car with a nice set of wheels for the same price or less than what most ask for just the tires and wheels.
  2. Another '69 Foose Camaro

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I thought large scale would be easier to build and mod but I was wrong. You can do sooooo much and its hard to know when to stop. There aren't a lot of after market parts for the 1/12 so I had scratch build them as I went.

    Absolutely fabulous!
  4. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T

    Another one of my favorite cars, beautiful color and great build. Do you have a link or supplier for the Zimmermanz wheels?

    Nice, one of my favorite colors and my favorite bird.

    The Aerowagon was painted with paint left over from the Rubicon, Tamiya Light Sand, with several coats of pearl clear and clear. The PG Vette is Tamiya metallic blue over Model Masters diamond dust with several coats of pearl clear and clear. I've picked up Tamiya's light red, green and blue pearls to experiment with. I love the depth and extra metal flake the pearl adds to metallics.

    Thanks for all the comments. Alexis the trailer was scratch built using the Jeep snap kit. The trailer frame was scratch built. I used three kits in total for parts and the scratch building. The fourth kit, Monogram's CJ7 remaining parts where used to build the Jeep gasser.
  8. Another '69 Foose Camaro

    As I said in under glass I haven't been around much the last few years due to family health issues, building a new house and life in general. One of the projects that took me 3 1/2 years to complete was a custom version of the 1/12 scale Foose Camaro. A friend gave the kit shortly after they hit the stores. From the beginning I had to do something special with it. I modded the body, engine, exhaust, interior and suspension. The trim, badges, front and rear bumpers were removed. I added a 3-D printed RS grille and custom taillights. The interior has a custom gauge cluster, 3-D printed Recaro seats and steering wheel, custom center console, flocked carpet and custom made seat belts, buckles and retractors. The engine had a scratch built plenum, throttle body, fuel rails and injectors with custom valve covers, coil, electric fan and engine pulleys. The kit battery was removed from the firewall and the firewall smoothed. I added after market resin wheels and tire with valve stems. I used custom brass made coil springs to replace the kit plastic rods for the front suspension. Custom sub-frame connectors and a side exhaust was added. It was first large scale build and had a lot of fun with it.

    Haven't been around much the last few years due to family health issues, building a new house and life in general. I still managed to get a few builds done so I thought I would post up a few from the last 4 years. First off a couple of Corvettes. My take on the Aerowagon and what I thought would be a Petty Garage vette. A club HotWheels challenge build And a few others
  10. Monogram "Street Fighter" custom

    If you can get the kit with the sunroof, it has the clear glass. I built one a couple of years back. Here is the link to one on ebayl http://www.ebay.com/itm/REVELL-TOM-DANIEL-STREET-FIGHTER-60-CHEVY-SEDAN-DELIVERY-MODEL-KIT-SEALED-/252769845298?hash=item3ada41c032:g:aZ4AAOSwcUBYK5OF
