  1. 1970 Buick GSX

    I'm pretty sure I used MCW Saturn Yellow. Any really bright yellow will work, Tamiya has one that would work well.
  2. 1970 Buick GSX

    One of the first models I built when I got back into the hobby as an adult. A Stage 2 Buick GSX was faster than a Plymouth Hemi Roadrunner at the time, probably making it the fastest muscle car of the era.
  3. Bandai Space Battleship Yamato

    It's even more direct than that: in the show they raised the Yamato from the ocean and fixed her up to be the starship.
  4. Bandai Space Battleship Yamato

    From the old Star Blazers show. 1:1000 scale. My first sci-fi model in 30+ years, a good friend gave me this kit.
  5. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville

    Thanks for the compliment! The rear window is still a mess, so I took the picture so you can't see it, LOL.
  6. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville

    Not a problem, we're all here to show off our stuff and to improve our skills.
  7. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville

    Hi Steve, Thanks for the feedback, it's very much appreciated. And I agree, the seams are too close together, it's something I noticed was an issue only after the model was completed. I'll make sure to make the seams further apart on any future builds.
  8. 1967 Pontiac Bonneville

    I bought this as a glue bomb off eBay. It wasn't in great shape, and in some places I couldn't completely save it, but I did strip it down, rebuild and repaint it as best I could. To me this is the best looking of the big Pontiacs of the era.
  9. Casey Atwood #27 Castrol Chevy

    This is Casey Atwood’s Busch Series Castrol ride, 1999 or so. He won 2 races in this car in the Busch series for Brewco. Atwood was supposed to be the next great young driver but his career never really took off. Slixx decals over Tamiya paint
  10. '66 Chevy Impala

    Sometimes models can relate to family. This is a ‘66 Chevy Impala kit; my parents owned this car in this exact color scheme when I was very young. I even made up license plates for the model to match the ones on the real car (RI plates PX429). My very earliest memories include this car. Willow green over a dark green interior. Paints were from MCW.
  11. Monogram '65 Chevy Impala

    I built this one in the box cover color of Evening Orchid metallic. This is a great kit, although I somehow got some glue on the windows like a fool. But I love the lines and the color.
  12. 1959 Cadillac Eldorado

    Thanks, I think the GM color I was aiming for is called Kensington Green.
  13. 1959 Cadillac Eldorado

    Probably the most advanced kit Revell/Monogram had ever made at the time it was released. Tamiya Green Pearl on this one.
  14. '70 Olds 442 convertible

    Honestly, they may not have. I know at one point this era of Cutlass offered the color, but I may well have used the color on the incorrect year. But I loved the color so much when I saw pictures of it that I decided to use it on this kit anyway. This kit is probably my absolute high point as a builder in terms of getting a finished product close to the image I had of it in my brain pre-build. I built it box stock because I wanted to see what I could do with just making it look as good as possible with basic techniques.
  15. 1971 Plymouth Hemi Cuda

    My first Hemi! Testors Plum Crazy lacquer spray paint
