    '56 Chevy

    I would have done it a little more accurate..but it was a replica of someone's car.
  2. Thanks guys. In the last pic the windows weren't in yet.
  3. My first NASCAR kit. Needed a change of pace and this was a lot of fun.
  4. Nicely done. And I love the blonde in the background...
  5. Thanks everyone. This ones not complete(missing mirrors,some trim,wrong wheels,etc.) but it's finished..next one will have a more '60's style wheel combo and be a little lighter shade of green, and be a 4-door.
  6. Haven't been on in awhile, so here's one to start with. This is a practice run before I build my Modelhaus 4-door version of how I want my 1:1 car to look like. Paint is a custom mix. Other than that it's basically a curbside, interior is all black, no engine detail. Thanks for looking. More to come soon.
  7. It should work fine with a little practice. Check the fancy paper displays also,as they often have a selection of velvety paper that works great(it's similar in texture to the red velvet Christmas bows,for example). I've used cheap wallet linings,fake leather handbags,etc.-those can always be found cheap at thrift stores. Most of these materials can be painted also,so look for a light color. Here's a couple examples...
  8. I've been keeping an eye out for this kit,so I'll be checking this out for sure.Can't wait to see what you do with it,as I have the Heller Delahaye Bonneville in waiting,which is somewhat similar to this.Show me the way!
  9. Maybe the chassis from the Revell(?) '90 Grand Prix would be a good fit. I don't know if it is 24th or 25th scale though.
  10. OK,finally got a starting point. This is an Aoshima Nissan Cedric/Gloria 330. This is a curbside kit with a basic chassis,I may end up swapping to a different chassis so it can be more detailed(?). Pretty nice kit other than that... ...now,here's where I throw you off a little,some mis-wired part of my brain has always thought these would lend themselves well to being built as a '60s style custom. Mild top chop,maybe a slight section,shaved moldings and emblems,tuck-n-roll interior,new trim,reworked front and rear grills/bumpers/lights,topped off with a satin/suede paint job and some whitewalls. I'm not sure yet if it will be "period correct" or more of a modern/retro look. Anyway,here's what I'm starting with-let the fun begin!
  11. Hey guys,just checking in,you haven't lost me. I was hoping to have my kit before the weekend. It's scheduled for delivery tomorrow,so I'll be joining in soon.Good work so far! Also, I was just thinking that it's pretty cool that the builds are all unrelated-totally different makes and models built in unrelated styles-should make for some interesting work!
  12. Try doing a search for reviews of the kit,as a lot of times they will have photos of instruction sheets also. Some sellers(e-hobbies?,HLJ?) often show parts trees and instructions also. I often will check auction sites to see what a kit consists of because the kits are usually are open and have decent pictures of the contents. Hope this may be of help..
  13. In the picture of the Camaro, there is a ruler propped up with a measuring tape,just looked kinda funny that's all.
  14. Tommy,I think your next purchase should be a new "measuring tool"... (with the 1/12 Camaro,so I don't have to repost it all again)
