  1. I'm looking for a lower front pan for the AMT '59 El Camino (the part below the bumper): Trade or ? Thanks!
  2. The perennial favorite is back. Nice moldings, everything has stayed straight, no warps. GREAT decal sheet though not as big or as much as I had hoped for given other new decal sheets from Round2, but still nice. Aftermarket can fill those extra wants as needed. Tires are Firestone Transports. Two chrome trees, but the tanks are molded in white. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uvxeBj1m-I
  3. Entry number 3 in my Corvette project, C3 Stingray. AMT kit went together very well, I was impressed by the details under the hood and the LT-1 small block. This kit also has some of the best Chevy Rallye wheels I've seen. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  4. Hi all! This is my first model in this community. Model was build 1,5 year ago and it was my first completely finished build. During the process of assembly, the elements of the suspension, engine, body, interrior were modified. I used some photo etching parts (locks of belts, engine parts, wipers), wire (cables), flock, BMF foil for chromium imitation, Alcad II, Elf headlights, rubber hose cords, string and syringe needle for antenna, 2k putty (mirrors, washer reservoirs). Windows(glass) except for the back are made of transparent plastic 0.5mm. The body is painted with a Model Master Nassau Blue Metallic paint and covered with 2k varnish. The rest of the details are painted with colors from the range of Tamiya and Testors. Interior was build in two-colors. I decided to paint the blue elements of the interior with the same metallic as the body, but due to different varnishes (matte in the interior and glossy on the body), the materials look differently and the interior turned out quite similar to the photos of real cars. Enjoy....
  5. Just completed this one recently (it may get some light weathering in future, though. We'll see...). This is a project that was started in 2013, sat in the box for years, and then sat partially assembled for over a year before I decided to make a few changes and finish it up. Some notes: -AMT 29 roadster, AMT '34 Ford flathead with aluminum intake stacks and scratchbuilt wire looms. Headers modified from Revell '32 Tudor kit, AMT '34 Ford wire wheels on Johan Mercedes 500k tires out back, and Revell '31 Woody wire wheels/tires in front. Firewall was modified with extra flanges to look more like the 1:1, and it has a flattened front crossmember and AMT '34 Ford coupe front axle to get the front end down. Cut-down steering wheel, '31 Woody door handles, and the windshield frame was chopped and removed from the stanchions then attached to the chopped-down roadster roof--so they can be removed as a unit for that stripped-down racer appearance. The headlights and taillight/license plate are held on with wire clips and are also removeable. Thanks for looking!
  6. Hey everybody, I started building this vintage VW Rabbit by AMT. It's going to be unrestored with rusty paint but lowered on nice Zender wheels. Here's what the 1.6 litre 4 cylinder engine looks like so far. I took a pic next to a Ford Cobra 5.8 litre V8 so you guys can see how little the VW engine is
  7. Quickie build. I've always preferred the '68-69 to the '70. Box stock, typical vintage AMT kit had fit issues. Only thing I added from the parts box, a voice in the back of my head kept saying "rearview mirror". Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  8. For many years I've wanted to do a '61 Pontiac Tempest; finally I got a reasonably-priced and near-mint builtup on eBay: Managed to get it apart without much trouble - almost no glue was used. To me, the biggest problem with this kit is the overly-thick and crooked window pillars. To wit: (eBay and Hemmings images; real car has baseline trim) So I made the following modifications: I also thinned down the window frames considerably. Note that only on the driver's side the B-pillar is crooked; the one on the passenger side is correct. Here's where I am now: Some more little things have to be finessed, like the windshield and rear window trim, body seams and the wavy areas of the hood (where AMT put cutaway lines for louvers), but I'm getting there. Plans so far are to keep it curbside, and maybe add an underdash A/C unit. Hope this is of some help to anyone else tackling one of these little Ponchos - one idea: NASCAR had a compact class in which a few of these sedans raced alongside Falcons and Corvairs (while the Valiants mopped the floor with them!). Happy modeling!
  9. I really enjoyed building this one. Replica stock, I did juice up the flathead with dual carbs and aluminum heads, all stealthily hidden under the hood. No major fit problems. Comments welcome, thanks for looking!
  10. Greetings and hello to all,,, Built for MODIFIED PRODUCTION class, similar in equipment to a Sox and Martin, Landy, Grotheer style Mopar door slammer from the late 60s early 70s era I suppose. Added some goodies from the parts stash, decals, and a bit of this and that as well.....paint is Testors Inca gold, then Tamiya clear, and finally Tamiya pearlcoat , and finally polished and waxed out. That's about it, and about all this ol' bird here can muster up for now. I welcome comments, or anything that you may want to ask .... all the best,,,,the Ace.....
  11. 3n1 re-release with new decals and pad printed tires. This does include the trailer as well. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeNVoyHzsRI
  12. Just finished this one. She started life as a Sedan Delivery a long time ago. I bought her as a built up in need of restoration from a friend. Like I had a Coupe body in my parts box, I decided to actually transform the Sedan delivery into a coupe. A little dig in the parts box found the body, the glass and interior tube from another old build I got already taken apart with a parts lot. Stripped the paint from all parts, repaired some crazing the body had, and started repainting things. Had to add the reinforcement bar to the fenders to stiff things up, as it had to be removed when building the Sedan Delivery. Decided to paint the car black, and used automotive enamel to do so. Did some restoration to the chrome parts by washing them with an old toothbrush and soap. That took off the dust, and brought back almost all the shine. Had to refinish the headlight doors with foil, as the chrome was very thin on that parts. The resulting model is almost box stock AMT, with just the addition of a tailpipe, and vent windows made out of acetate, as the body came without the stock AMT parts. Hope you guys like this little coupe.

  13. Finished this one today. Really nice, detailed kit, one of the newer AMT tools. I did a Google image search and found one with this unusual color scheme, so 1950's. Comments welcome as always, thanks for looking!
  14. Currently working on this model, I heard this isn't a easy build but I got the kit for 10 bucks at Michaels with a 60% coupon. Slowly detailing it and b uilding my the motor. Stay tuned I will be posting more pics as soon as I get my primer (ordered 4 cans of plastikote on eBay for 30 and got a can for free!)
  15. Got trounced last weekend on eBay bidding on these so I'm not too optimistic, but: They were in the original AMT '62 Bonneville hardtop kit (and the reissued "Polyglas Gasser" version) but not in the convertible. Anyone have a set? Trade or ? Thanks for looking.
  16. The weather is starting to get warmer in Northern Virginia and I'm getting the fever to build again. I figured I'd start out with a bang by bringing this old AMT Trophy Series 32 Ford Roadster back to life. It's an older kit, and some might gasp at the thought of chopping it up, but that's what they're here for. I paid $11 for the box, which included this stripped down roadster and another, almost pristine stock version. As the seller told me, "The roadster is rough.." and rough it is. It looks like it was put together with a hot glue gun or clear caulking. Certain adhesives interact poorly with styrene, so this has some "dents" in it, which is ok with me. The rumble seat that normally fold ups and down on this kit has been glued shut and a wide gap is left at the bottom (don't you love this?). There is no floorboard beyond the bench seat which has been glued to the body with what could be a liberal dousing of JB Weld. That's ok though, a little balsa wood or a flattened out piece of a Coke can will do the trick. The frame is mostly ok and whatever hot glue or caulking was used on this kit to put it together is mostly forgiving (the areas with Crazy Glue however, are not). The front axle is broken in two places, but the broken part is there, so I could be difficult and not use a replacement from he parts bin. In case you're wondering, the axle is broken because the builder didn't have a second metal rod that came with the AMT kits, so he glued the rims straight to the axle. The engine didn't come from his kit and is the kind that has a short transmission area that matchs up with the molded in transmission similar to some of the older Jo-Han kits. In order to make this engine fit, pieces of sprue were cut and glued onto the frame. The nubs for the radiator shroud are still there, so that won't be an issue. The tires are interesting, I can't tell if the whitewalls were painted or if they came that way. I usually replace the tires on glue bombs like this with the nice AMT whitewall Firestones available recently, but I kinda like these. The Cragar style rims definitely did not come with this kit, and even though I do kind of like how they look, they might be replaced with parts box steelies. Appropriately this guy will be turned into a black primer-ed rat rod, maybe with a little rust thrown in. So there's going to be a lot of work; lots of filing, scraping, sanding. I'm looking forward to it.
  17. Here is the rerelease of the Mack R685ST kit. Looks nice, molds have held up. New wheels look great, clear glass, 280+ parts. GREAT decals in this issue! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MNQqOlG0c-A
  18. ...........Just thought I would mention that an ebay seller has just listed the new reissues of the VW superbug gasser and 57 Ford some of us were waiting for.....chance's are more seller's will have their supply in the next day or two as well..........thought I'd just mention for those interested......the Ace......
  19. .......Just thought I would ask our always informed member's if someone could school me on the general detail's and content's of a 1995 issue of the AMT 56 FORD, that was apparently sold in a plain white shipping box in the 1995-96 era I'm told......wondered if all the custom and race part's were there, slick's, decal's, etc....thanks in advance......the Ace...
  20. Hi, I'm looking for any AMT 32 Ford parts (especially front suspension) or gluebomb kits you might not want anymore. Thanks!
  21. I know that I have seen a list somewhere online years ago that had all the original issue dates for AMT's big rigs. I have searched some tonight and have had no luck. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Thanks!
  22. Happy Saint Patrick's Day, friends! I stopped at Hobby Lobby after work and picked up this brand new Round 2/AMT 2017 Camaro SS "Fifty" edition. I haven't seen a review for this kit, so I decided to take some photos and let you know what I think about it! Please leave some feedback and share your thoughts on this kit. I've only been back into building for the last couple of years, so please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the first completely "new" kit from any of the Round 2 brands. I've been looking forward to this one and I'm not even the biggest fan of Camaros. The body is molded in what looks like the factory correct color "Nightfall Gray Metallic", credit to RandyB. for identifying that color. The shrinkwrap sticker on the box said this kit was molded in black, so I was surprised to see the body molded in this color. You're going to need to paint it as the plastic is very swirly. The body on this kit feels very flimsy and thin. You can see the actual print through the roof when held to the light and you can also so how thin the plastic is near the door handles. Very disappointed in that! There are a couple mold lines to look out for on the front clip and over the rear wheel well. Note: This is looking from the top of the car and down. The area near the door handles look almost like a non-fill issue. The piece count is very nice for this kit. The parts are molded in black, metallic gray, silver, clear, chrome and transparent red. I'll go into a more detailed look at these trees down below. As like the body, all of the large pieces in this kit feel brittle and flimsy at the same time. I really hope that only my kit is like this and it's not an issue across the board. That would be a real bummer. The frame, chassis and floor pans are all one solid piece. This may be similar to the snap version of this kit, but I'm not sure. If you look, you'll see the driveshaft is even molded in. The rear seat detail will disappear under a coat or two of paint. Very poorly molded or mastered. The wheels look pretty cool for this car. I wish that the bow tie was a lot more visible, instead of the blob it looks like. The clear parts in this kit however, are some of the best I've ever seen! Lots of detail and thought went into these pieces. I love the tail lights and the defrost lines in the rear window. The black window trim is a great touch and gives you one less problem when detailing the kit! The tires look good and they're directional. They are not branded, however. I hope that Round 2 doesn't go the same way Revell-Monogram has gone. The last photo is of the decals. Like all of the other Round 2 releases, these are very brilliantly printed. If you've stuck around through my ramblings this long, I thank you for your time. I'm not sure that I'll ever get around to building this kit. I've got so many other projects started or that I want to start and I don't see this one knocking any of those out anytime soon. It's a nice kit and looks very accurate, but it has flaws that shouldn't exist on a newly tooled kit that was made 3 months ago. If you have one, let me know how yours is! Until next time!
  23. hello to all,,,, lately I have had problem's with some of newer issue Round2 decal sheets.....that is to say, when some are removed from the sealed bag they are packed in, the yellow backing paper is stuck to the sheet in some case's, thus pulling the coating from some image's and leaving chip's or ' pock' mark's on most decal's.. ..I find that it happens when you open a kit that may have been in stock for a period of time, where brand new issue's that are opened and checked seem to be just fine. It seems the longer the sheet is sealed in the cello, with the backing paper pressed into it, with the weight of the content's of the entire kit on top, the worse they get as time goes on. I bought the new 49 Ford when first release, and the sheet is great,,,but just this weekend bought and opened two new kit's of the 63 Corvette, and 37 Chevy gasser, and both sheet's have the damage mentioned. I also opened my second awb 65 Mustang that has been around here for a couple of year's, and when removed from the cello bag the decal's were stuck to the backing paper causing damage once again. In checking other kit's that were released WITHOUT the plastic cello bag on the decal's, all of mine are just perfect.... I have had this happen now a few time's.... have any of you had the same dilemma......the Ace....
