    '70 Chevy Chevelle Revell Monogram
    Newest addition to my model builds. This is a great kit by the way. My mom picked it up at a Hobby Lobby near where she lives in Southern Arkansas in order for me to complete it for her since she had a car similar to this one when she was younger. I haven't seen this model in any of my LHSs and I have a great selection here in Cincinnati. Oh well, at least i was able to build it!

    I've got some spare Torq Thrust wheels that could looks similar to those wheels if painted the right color and weathered of course along with running over the wheels with a lawnmower...

    I don't even know where to start. I one day dream of being able to do detailing like that, especially on the interior. I know a lot of it has to do with the kit but still... The detailing is outrageous!!! I am soon fixing to start a Tamiya Ferrari Spider and I hope it turns out half as good as this one. Great build!

    I'm really liking this. You did a good job. Good contrast on the tonnaeu (sp?) cover.

    '72 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible
    I wanted to share my latest model that I finished the other day. This is a 1972 Oldsmobile Cutlass Convertible made by Revell. The two tone body is Model Master Hot Pink Pearl and Model Master Gloss Black and the underbody is Alclad II Steel with Alclad II Aluminum pipes, mufflers, suspension. All paint was shot through an air brush. Went above and beyond on a couple of things including flocking on the floorboard, BMF on the interior, spark plug wires on the engine.

    I know, I know, this is the exact model Revell shows on their box for this kit, but unfortunately my girlfriend wanted me to make her this car and she seemed to just love the black on pink so I went ahead and did it anyways.

    By the way this is one of the better $20 Revell kits I've ever done. They provided a lot of extras with this kit that I haven't seen in many other kits such as real metal exhaust tips, real metal axels, along with a few other tidbits that take a model that extra mile. A great kit and I would suggest anybody go out and get it.

    Also, this is a random question but I'm sure somebody will read this and be able to answer it. The other day I was at the hobby store and noticed a Revell model on the bottom shelf that was in a rectangle box shaped like a Tamiya car model box. I picked it up and the quality of the box was great and the model was $50?! By Revell?! The box said nothing as to what was different between this long rectangular type model and the cube-type box (most common). Are these type of models just better quality or whats the deal here?

    Thanks for looking!!

    This is a great tutorial. Thanks a lot!

    One thing I might add though to make the process of obtaining pictures easier..
    Instead of using 3rd party applications to obtain the pictures (I think the tutorial mentioned Grabit!) just push the "Print Screen" button on your keyboard when the image you want is displayed on the monitor then open up MS Paint or MS Word and then press "Ctrl+V" or "Paste." Then voila! Your picture is open inside the editor. No worrying about saving files here or there. Of course you will have to crop the picture... Just a little easier IMO.

    Get some clear drying glue. I use a type of clear glue made by Testors, it has a purple label on it. When it dries you can hardly see the residue left over. I use this for all windows and love it.

    I use a LOT of the testors one coat lacquer and i love with Dupli Color sandable primer, couple coats of the Testors one coat lacquer, then clear with either future or Dupli Color Clear Coat.
  11. peanutskeeter added a post in a topic What did you get today?   

    About 5 sets of Detail Master PE part, lots of flocking, some Alclad aluminum.

    I like this a lot! Especially the motor, you did a good job on detailing it. Why no paint job? That looks like it is the color of the styrene.

    Here is another view of the motor.

    The reason I put them where I did was because that's where the towers were to mount a small wire. Your advice is noted, thanks for the input.
