Scale I Build

  1. This is just the very beginning stages but you gotta start somewhere. A slight touch with the Dremel and some light sanding with an emery board then a little dab of Tamiya filler Putty and the side scoops are a thing of the past. I'll let that dry overnight. Next I'll have to make a Ram Air Air cleaner. For this I was able to trim the bottom half if the shaker scoop and the top half of an extra Deserter Air cleaner. The rally lls are soaking in Mr. Clean as they way too shiny chrome and need to be painted Argent. Revell did a pretty good job on these also. You just need a little paint detailing work. The Firestone Wide Ovals are really nice. I think I might just keep the front spoiler and the wheel well pices. I know the y were specific to the T/A , but I kinda like the look of those. The same for the engine turned instrument panel applique. I always liked the look of that over the boring, wood grain of the Formula. They give you a nice decal for that.
  2. So its 8 degrees here today,,{how nice} and its perfect model building weather. Completed is the Revell 70' Trans am. One of my fav GM body styles. When I lived in Ann Arbor Mi in the late 70's,,a girl I dated had her father who owned a T/A like this one,, she used to take us out in it,,she let me drive it a few times,,what an awsome car! So heres my recent version. Kit was tough to build on a few things,,had to make clearance for chassis to fit up under body,,but I always assemble all body fronts,,valences ect 1st,,then paint as one assembled unit,,so maybe that contributed to the fit issue. Sprayed can hardware store blue,,hand painted everything else. And some basic wiring,,pretty simple but looks cool on the shelf! Cheers!
  3. Hi. I recently bought a mint MPC 73 Firebird formula,the 3 in 1 kit,and i consider getting some body`s and formula hoods casted. Would the 1:24 scale 70 Trans Am from Revell/Monogram do good as a donor? The donor parts for the resin would be. Complete tailights. Rear bumper. Grill. Front headlights. Tub & interior. Glass. Firewall. Chassis. Have anyone attempted this?
