Scale I Build

  1. I happen to be working nights right now, and sleeping during the day proves a little bit difficult at times. This afternoon while trying to sleep I noticed I had duplicates of the 1970 Corvette. When I went to combine the two kids into one box, I noticed one was molded in gray and the other in orange. I thought to myself it might look cool if I built the Corvette using different color parts for all the assemblies. So I tried it this afternoon. The results look better in my head then the actual model. It might come off a little better as a convertible. I do have a convertible kit and a whole bunch of orange pieces. The convertible kit is turquoise. So I might just do this again. Honestly this would’ve looked a little better if the T tops and the doors were gray. The interior engine and chassis came out pretty much the way I had envisioned. What do you think? In the end, I had a lot of fun! And that’s what it’s all about!
  2. The 1968 Baldwin Motion hood is in a mold box and awaiting silicon molding. But that won’t happen until Wednesday night. In the meantime, since I will be pouring silicone, I figured I would pop out another custom hood for casting. As you may have guessed from the title, it’s a hood for a First Generation Monte Carlo. Baldwin Motion never offered the Monte Carlo as a package in their Phase III line up, but I have always wanted to build a “what if“. The L88 hood was and natural choice for me since that’s what they put on the 1970 Chevelle. Plus the Monte Carlo has such long hood, the could be made longer, as on the 1973 and later Corvettes. I would also like to put the 1969 Camaro cowl induction hood on a Monte Carlo hood. It too will need a little lengthening.
  3. This one was completed due to in joining the “Dring out your dead” thread in the On the Workbench. Thanks to Snake45 for starting this thread and helping me to “Gitter done” Thaks for looking!
  4. I was thinking of improving my airbrush skills and wanted to build something more or less OOB, and concentrate on trying out paint techniques. This popped up on eBay for £20. 38 years old and stil in cellophane! The box interior had that 'old' smell. The Barris decals are rub-on transfers and there's a sheet of self adhesive prismatic sticker material. I'm not going to use either of these, as I intend to paint designs on the body. I removed all the scripts and door handles. The mould seams n the body were feint but there were a few sink marks to deal with. I used the custom rear window and filled the gaps After a fruitless search for Pegasus wheels online, I opted for some nice rims from the AMT 60 Starliner kit, shod with narrow whites from the sorely missed Modelhaus.. A big canvas for some creativity!

  8. Couldn't wait for this kit to come out, and when it did I bought one immediately. Been waiting for some time to build it and since I just lost my job I have a lot of new found time on my hands for some builds.

  9. I have the AMT 1970 Ford Galaxie police car kit and I want to make it in the Las Vegas version. There aren't many stickers for this version which is fine, but there isn't anything in the kit that tells you where to put the numbers for the squad car. I have looked at the pictures on the internet for "Diamonds are Forever" cop cars, but since it is all night time scenes it is really hard to see where the number might be. I think there is a number on the passenger side trunk near the tail light, correct me if I'm wrong. If anyone out there knows the correct location of the squad car numbers, please let me know.
  10. Third ever build was a 1970 Plymouth barracuda. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Missed some spots with paint in the engine since I don't have an airburish. There's also a very small gap at the top of the windshield but I'll take it. On to the next one.
  11. So i got some stuff from a good buddy of mine and he passed me on this what looks like a PROMO kit but i'm not too sure cause i've searched on ebay and can't seem to find one close enough promo wise to it. Can anyone help me out here and let me know what this actually is? It's a really nice clean car, well kept.
  12. Hi all! It's been quite a while since I posted any progress on any of my models. I recently set up a new model desk and finally finished up my Dodge Challenger, so here are some studio pictures of the finished build. Enjoy!
  13. This is the Mustang 1970 Boss 429 I just finished. First model in 20+ year for me and I must admit that I'm quite happy with the result. Far from perfect but I've learnt so many things while doing it, it's only going to make the next model better. Body Color: Testor Competition Orange/Flat Black, Tamiya Clear Coat. (all rattle can...don't have an airbush yet...) Scratchbuilt the battery (and cables),front shocks and spring, windshield washer fluid tank, wired the engine ignition...(well partially...)

  14. Here is my Hobby Heaven 1/25th scale Custom 500. I was inspired by the film "Magnum Force" and wanted to build a 1970's police inspector's car like Harry Callahan's. I decided to paint the car a Ford Medium Brown Metallic, a correct color for that model and year. The paint is actual auto paint - a two part finish with a color base and a clear coat. I did not like the dog dish hubcaps that came with the car, so ordered a set of aluminum hub caps from Park's Parts. I detailed the interior and dash, using authentic gauge images supplied by Best Model, along with the correct license plates for that period. I added a strobe light, courtesy of the Starsky and Hutch kit, and ordered a pico LED from Police Models. I also wired the engine to make it more realistic. The engine supplied with the kit is not the correct one, but used it anyway. The air cleaner came from another kit.
  15. Thought the car looked pretty cool, plus you never see many kits of the full size cars, so I picked it up.
  16. Just got the kit a couple weeks ago. It's not a bad kit, though I don't like the thin metal emblems. Almost lost them, and on top of that I bent the metal that goes over the tail lights. Over all though it came out good.
  17. Could have been better, but the kit isn't that great. Wish it had the stock stripes too.
  18. Hello, I just finished this model car. Took about a month total, which is the longest I have ever taken to build a model (usually takes me a week to do ). The kit is an AMT 1970 Chevelle SS (Jack Reacher Issue). I used colors from Testor's Special Value Acrylic Paint set. It has the LS6 motor in it. Had a lot of trouble putting on the front bumper, needed to shave headlight openings like instructions suggested but did not go all way due to fear of breaking it. Hood doesn't not fit on properly because I cut it into thirds and glued it back to make hole so the engine could be seen. Scratch-built Modifications include: custom roll cage, side exit exhausts, side view mirrors (kit does not come with any ), windshield decal, and rear spoiler. I had a lot of fun building it, learned a lot. On a scale of "shelf of doom" to "completely awesome" I rate it an overall "meh". Could be much better but I'm really happy with they way it turned out. Thanks for reading! Beep Beep! Here comes the pictures... Non-staged photos: wait there's more...
  19. I missed this kit the last time around...has anyone gotten the new release?
  20. Well,it`s green so it blends in lol. This is the Monogram you can build T/A or streetmachine. I wanted somthing a little diffrent. Paint and primer is Tamiya,i did a fatal mistake of polish it with compound instead of polish, both bottles are close to identical,sloppy of me. I used the 440 Magnum engine from the 69 Revell Charger,coupled with the kit 4speed,i also used the exhaust with some modifications. Put on some R/T and six pack emblems,antenna,exhaust tips,some tire decals,these where not shaped correct so they are not perfect fit. It still got the 340 six pack air cleaner and air grabber. The engine room is very spartan on detail,so i try add heater box and hoses,also an windsheild wiper motor. Then some decals/warnings. The radiator is modifies original coupled with the 69 Charger fan cover. Ok,here are some pictures. I might go with side decals later on,thanks for looking.
  21. I love my Chevelles, my Challenger, and my Charger.......but I haven't been able to stop messing with this thing since I finished it. It came out better than expected!
  22. I think I did a pretty good job on these considering the kits weren't much.
  23. This was created box stock from a 2000 release of a Revell snapper. The color is from testors lacquer line of rattle cans. It lays on too thick and fought me the whole time. It would be nice to get an air bush sometime. Since doing my first vinyl top a few years ago I like doing them now and saw it fit to do it to this car because of deleting the stripes. Comments welcome thank you for looking! Happy Holidays!
  24. Where do i find decals for the the 1970 Plymouth Cuda? These are the one i`m searching for (see picture)
