    MPC 1974 Plymouth Roadrunner
    I decided to build this model next... I was going to do the daisy duke car (that's the kit I got) but the hood decal got damaged so I am going a different route. I will build it box stock with the exception of BMF, seatbelts and flocking. I will not bother going into extra detail under the hood since it's not accurate at all and poorly detailed.

    Here's the body primed with tamiya white primer, chrome yellow and then automotive clear.

    I have a bunch of parts soaking in bleach that shouldn't be bright chrome. They'll be refinished in alcad chrome for the rims and polished aluminium for the grille

    Thanks guys for all the comments! It was a fun one to build and I plan on doing another one soon. (I have a photo etch set for this kit)

    Hey Tyrone I will dig up some pics of the nova for you. I know I have pics of it being built.

    Hey Tim, here is a short video of the Swinger I'm building... It's like building a model, but a little more expensive! Haha. It's an original 340 4 speed car. Factory hemi orange with black interior. It's going right back to original, but it's proved to be a bigger challenge then first expected! I have about 1000hrs into it so far and the next challenge is the front frame rails. I'm waiting on them so that's why I built this model... I'm still waiting so I'll build another model in the meantime!

    Thanks guys! It's pretty much complete now.. Just have to black wash the hood vents.

    Hey Tyrone, yes I built a 69 tribute charger a while back!

    Thanks guys for the comments! The tape is holding the subframe to the body while the glue dries. My subframe was slightly warped in this kit, so it didn't want to fit tight against the body.

    AMT 1970.5 Camaro Z28 build
    Hey guys, it's been about 2yrs since I've posted on here and built a model.. I haven't left the hobby, but had a lot of things going on that kept me from building models... Mainly my 1:1 car I'm building (1970 340 Swinger) I've still been collecting kits over the past two years and finally decided to start building one up. I have been working on this one for about two weeks and it's almost complete. It went togather pretty good. It had a few little issues but nothing major. I figured I'd post in here and say hi! And show what I've been working on.

    It's box stock with some extra wiring, BMF, flocking and seatbelts.

    It's automotive base clear (custom mixed colour)





    (I touched up the glue stain in this pic)

    Lookin great! I just thought I give you a warning on the rear axle not being centered to the wheel well openings on this kit. The wheels will sit to far back.. It's an easy fix relocating the diff on the springs and shortening the driveshaft a bit. If you have the latest issue of this kit you'll see it being off on the box art pics. I built a 69 charger a few months ago and the only other issue I had was the front roll pan below the bumper not fitting properly.. I glued some tabs on the outer pan out of some thin styrene to hold te corners in place to the fenders.. It solved the problem!

    Can't wait to see more of this build!

    Thanks guys for all the comments! I used the smoke paint from the can TS-71. I couldn't find it in acrylic at the hobby shop.

    I got some of the chassis detailed.. I painted all the brake lines/fuel lines/emergency brake lines, which was a pain to do, since the details weren't raised very high! I also dry brushed some graphite over the whole chassis to add a bit more realism and heat stained the resonator and cat.

    I also made a heat shield out of some cigar foil.

    Thanks! You should pick one up, it be neat to see more of these built, the details and pieces are very nice, the only fitment issue on this kit so far, was the front window.

    got some details done under the hood.

    Thanks guys, it's slowly coming along! That's awesome, what style are you going to build?

    I got the tail lights finished. I got some Tamiya smoke and painted it on the top and bottom part of the tail lights (the tail lights on a 1:1 car are this way) then i put BMF on the back side to make them look reflective, it turned out pretty good i think!


    I also got the chassis painted, once it's dry i'll start detailing it up.

    Not a fan of the rough texture on the chassis..

    Thanks guys! That Omni is looking great!! I'd like to see some pics of it when its finished.

    I got the front window in with a lot of fight... prepare for a lot of sanding on the bottom of the glass if you want the hood sitting flat. The rear glass is glued in and i got the rear louvers painted.

    haha yeah that tomato red is the colour they used... well the daytona for sure!

    Here's how well the rear window louvers fit on the daytona.

    Its actually tomato red automotive pinstripe, i just cut it really thin and it worked out perfect! it sticks great too!

    Thanks! I just finished the red pinstripe, now it looks complete!

    Those Daytona's look great! There's a few pro street Daytona's here at the local track. Is that your omni 024 in your profile pic?

    I got the trim pieces all painted on the body... a ton of masking! I blacked out both grill inserts just like a 1:1 car would have.
