  1. Miniman Factory M1008 CUCV kit in 1/35 This will be my first all resin (and PE) kit build. kit contents The following are side by sides with the MENG "Toyota" Tomorrow I'll post pics of the Miniman Factory Chevy cab next to 1/24 and 1/25 scale truck kits. Thanks for looking ...
  2. The Chevrolet Corvette Prototype (GM intern EX-52) 1952 began its life as a scatch on a paper napkin. Shortly was introduced the First American Sport Car in the Motorama show in 1953. The car is existing still today but the engine was changed by Mr. Zora Duntov to a V8 engine. So the car to see today is the very first Corvette V8 ! I modified a Corvette 1953 Revell kit back to prototype: on outside was not very much to do. More differences were in the engine compartment. Here I got help with two photos from GM Media Archive. Enjoy the pictures and any comments are welcome.
  3. Good day everyone... I am wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket caster that might make a 1954 Chevy Pick up and also a 1978 Chevy C10 long bed I have 2 friends that are wanting builds done of their trucks. A while back someone gave me the name of a caster that had a bunch of different bodies but for the life of me I can not remember who it was. As always thanks for any and all information Mike
  4. Decided to merge a bit of my favorite JDM tuning influences with a rock-star of a US sportscar. The original HOtwheels version was nice enough but had some glaring issues such as the big/little wheels sizes. Putting a smaller wheel on the rear meant there was a wider wheel gap and a slumped down rear end. This is the first time I work with modelling putty. Work done: Lowered. Wheel well filled in. Widebody conversion. Custom front splitter. Rocketbunny style rear spoiler. Side mirrors. Wheels cut and reassembled further out to sit flush with wider track. IMG_3597.xmp
  5. I was going to wait a little while longer before I started this thread on my 1976 Chevrolet Bison stake truck so I had more progress to show; but since we are already close to the end of the month, and the rules do say "monthly updates" I figured no time like the present. Here is the kit that I am starting with: Yes, the venerable AMT Chevrolet Bison. The plan is to replace the 8V92 that comes in the kit with a 6V92T, shorten the hood to a 108" BBC from the kits 116" BBC, swap out the air ride suspension for the spring suspension from the AMT GMC Astro/95, then add the stake body from the AMT Ford C600 kit (thank you, Aaron). I have had the Auslowe Detroit Diesel 6V92T kit kicking around for a while now, and I figured this would be perfect: Oh, man, was I ever wrong! Ever since I started building this engine back on January 1st, it's been one step forward & two steps back! I'm going to toss the Auslowe engine idea, and replace it with a 6V92T from GW Trucks. Hopefully more progress next month!
  6. I am using the AMT 57 Corvette frame and engine under the AMT 55 Corvette body because I feel the 57 frame is overall superior to what comes in the 53/55 kits. I have the front spindles in so I could see how it would sit. Overall look Rear close up Front close up I also did some boring things like paint the engine, sand some on the body, etc.. The AMT 57 Corvette frame really works great on the 55 body. Thanks for looking.
  7. Hi guys I`m Cosmo and this is my first post in here. I`m working on a conversion project that started from a MPC `76 Chevy Caprice 2-door coupe version. For some reason the body part was not molded well when I received the model and I think it`s beyond repairable. So I decieded to chop the damaged A-pillar and fender section and replace it with epoxy-bounded Foil material and gave it a damaged appearance. I always have a thing for the big, full-size american 4 door sedan in the 60`s and 70`s. So I converted the MPC 2-door coupe version to a 4-door sedan. I cut the B-pillar and fill the quarter window because I prefer a more traditional and thicker C-pillar which is different from the actual `76 Caprice sedan, but personally I prefer the look. I also rescribed the door panel lines and trunk. I used sterene sheet to reform the roof section and I sanded off the side trim to give the Caprice a more "base model" appearance. -------------------------------------------------------- I`ll keep the progress updated in here. Comments are greatfully appreciated!
  8. This took only 2 days to build. A nice kit, sprayed in One Coat De Ja Blue and Blazing Black 2-tone with dark grey interior. Extra decals by Dirty Donny.
  9. Just finished this last night. I call it "Mack The Knife". Based on Revell's '57 Chevy Ragtop and inspired by a real one I had seen at Lead East a couple of years ago. Very fun kit to build. It is Tamiya White with red black and white interior. The top is krylons flat white. the caps are from Modelhaus and the spots are parts box finds.
  10. This one will be hitting my bench shortly. Music is my main hobby, and I'm a huge fan of 80s metal and rock, so when I saw this kit, I had to have it. Testor's call it the Boyd's Hauler, I call it the Van Hauler. I find it amusing that they keep referring to the unnamed rock star. Licensing I guess. Anyway, lots of detail in this kit. Much better than the usual AMT Chev trucks, although I'll have to compare to my 454SS kit and see how close they are for tooling. Comes with the Van Halen decals sheet, Van Halen stripe wheels, Corvette engine and suspension. Building this one box stock, with a few extra details.
  11. I plan on build Caprice coupe with the fishbowl glass 77-79. I have required the interior,body and glass. Does anyone know if there was made any kit`s,diecast or aftermarket options for the early versions? Any suggestions are welcome but in 1:24/1:25 scale only. Thanks Tommy
  12. Had an issue with the cab trying to get it on the chassis which caused much cursing, but it finally came out looking great.
  13. Just completed! SS badging from the Monte Carlo SS kit... (hard to see) Trim - Gloss Black, Body - Inca Gold, Top - Black Vinyl... Hood stripes - '69 Camaro... "CHEVROLET" lettering - Chevy Pickup kit....
  14. I'm back on cars after a number of truck builds.... this is the AMT kit. I actually like the Supercharger in this kit.... Typical musclecar black interior with silver highlights.... Tamiya Gloss Black basecoat and One-Coat Inca Gold... And Black Vinyl Top to be finished today, followed by silver trim....
  15. Thought I should share some pictures of my current project, a factory stock Chevrolet Blazer.
  16. I haven't done fire decals on a model since I was a kid, so I figured I'd play around with what I've collected. Kit is an AMT Snap kit recently reissued, and I decided to throw on some paints and details to make it better. Entire kit was done in a weekend, even while I was working on my "Phantom" van! Interior was done in Semi Gloss Black and Fabric Gray with silver gauges and trim. Body paint is a mixture of One Coat Firey Red and One Coat Mystical Maroon (maroon color darker at the top half, lighter red at the bottom half...). Undercarriage was a light brushing of aluminum paint for the muffler and piping, and gunmetal for the bottom of the engine (hardly any detail in them anyway...).
  17. Good Evening, I am brand new to this site and forum. I used to put together model cars as a teenager just to occupy my OCD, but hadn't done one in YEARS until a few weeks ago. I threw together an '07 Shelby GT500 in just a few days, not putting any effort in. That build brought back the itch, so I needed to do more. The other night I grabbed the '69 Camaro kit to work on. Unfortunately this is going to be another quick build, without the detail I really want. I'm not in a financial position to get all the extra tools and things that I want/need to really slow down and do a great build. Not working with any primer, sanding, etc for now, though I hope to be able to collect these things for future builds. I am still trying to enjoy taking the time and hopefully doing an acceptable job. Below are some pics; I started with the engine block, and added quite a few of the added parts. Any comments, tips, or critiscism is welcome. I'll be posting more as I progress with the project.
  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. Hello, I am new here to the forums and this is my first post. After several years away from building model cars as a kid, I recently decided to jump back into the hobby. I am trying to build one model a month and have so far built two cars and two trucks. I will post the trucks in the pick-up truck section. This is my first model after many years. It is a box-stock AMT 2006 Chevrolet Camaro Concept. I painted the exterior with Testor's Purple Gloss and the interior with Black Gloss (kit came molded in red). I painted the roof to look like the car had a T-top. This model was built back in March 2014. Overall, this was fun kit to build and I am fairly happy with the way it turned out. Yeah, I know it looks pretty bad but that's alright with me (first model in years)! This next model is a Revell Dodge Magnum SRT8. The exterior is painted with Testor's Red Gloss and the interior with Red, Silver, and Black Gloss. I personalized this model a bit by painting the fenders, skirts, lower parts of the bumpers, and the tail lights with Black Gloss, which was a pretty big modification for me at the time. This was built in May 2014. I am really happy on how this one turned out. That is all for now. Hope you all liked them! Currently working on a not-box-stock AMT 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (Jack Reacher Issue). Thanks!
  20. A while ago I posted a topic where I was asking how should I build a Pro Mod car body, as they are far from original bodies. I got excellent responses, and here I am starting my first true Pro Modified build. My plan is to build a car that could actually race and that would be NHRA Legal. This is actually practising for my next Pro Modified Drag Car that will be a '60 Impala. I haven't done much progress yet, but I wanted to post this thread here already and do this as a Step By Step build simply because then the Pro Mod guys on this forum can point out if I make mistakes easily before it's too late to fix them. And when this build is completed some day (It will take a lot of time), hopefully this thread can help other people building their Pro Mods, too. If not, then this thread can be named "How Not To Build A Pro Mod" . So I hope that everyone will point out my mistakes and give advice when I'm in trouble... Constructive criticism is highly appreciated here! Anyway the car I'm building will be '82 Chevy Corvette that I got in a trade a few years ago. It was mainly unstarted, but the previous owner had made some room for wider Drag Slicks by cutting the chassis. At first this was going to be an Outlaw Street car, but because of the poor quality of this kit I decided to make a Pro Mod of it. So this is the kit: As an inspiration I will be using a Corvette Pro Mod from Finland, driven by Marko Lantto. I don't have any measurements or anything like that from his car, but luckily there are pictures in the internet that I can use, and they will sure be helpful in this project. I started by taking a couple of measurements. In Pro Modified, the car's wheelbase must be between 104 and 115 inches. The original wheelbase on '82 Corvette is 98 inches, so it needs to be stretched a little. I will be using Good Year Frontrunner tires on this one, and with them I can make the wheel openings a bit smaller in the front. By moving the front wheels a bit further away, I measured that my model had 100,8 inch wheelbase. When the front tire was in its' regular place, the wheelbase was exactly 98 inches. I'm going to stretch my wheelbase with 5 inches, which means that in scale I will stretch the body 0.20 inches. Here are a couple of pics of the original body. The firewall was molded to the body as one piece, so it had to go first. With my razor saw, I cut it away and then I glued the hood shut, as Pro Mods have one piece nose. Today I decided to cut the front end off to wait for stretching. I used Dymo-tape as a quide and used my razor saw again. This picture shows how much the wheelbase must be stretched. I will use a Supercharged Hemi on my build. And I have a question regarding that... What engine you suggest? I have a Top Fuel Hemi that could be modified into Pro Mod Hemi with a little work. I have a Blower and the injector hat already. Another choice would be Ross Gibson engine, but I've seen many opinions on their quality. Are they worth their price, as to me they seem a bit expensive even though I've never built one? I want to thank everyone who has posted their Pro Modified builds in here... I've been reading those threads really actively.
  21. Hey guys. Figured I would show you what I'm Currently working on. It's a kit bash of a 1965 Chevy race car hauler. Have had the two kits for a while just sitting in the closet and one day I had the idea of combining the two together and some parts boxes to do it. Let me know what what you guys think and also open to ideas as well. kind of " wingin " it. Debating if I want to run one ton suspension and a dual rear tire axle on the back or not The two kits i'm using are Revell Monogram 1965 Chevy stepside kit # 85-7249 Amt/Ertl Model King Open Road Camper and Racers Wedge Model King #21453p Here's a few pictures of what I got done so far. Bare with the crappy camera, still trying to figure it out not to mention it was a cloudy day I went with a flat white for the ramp bed. the color is a gloss burgundy with a gloss white top cut the rear frame of the 65 pick up and re worked it but still have to add some frame rails so it will be a full frame plain jane interior. Flat white and some detail done
  22. Sitting at the dealer
  23. I'm building a 1965 El Camino, from the AMT 1/25 kit. But there is a problem with the taillights, look like too smalls ! Maybe there are chrome bezels, but I don't find anythings in the kit... A picture will explain : Anyone has built that kit ?
