Scale I Build

  1. Conversion of a conversion, the Canopy Express is a rare vehicle to begin with. I started this April 1995. *Edit* I made it a 1948, simple to remove the door vent windows. For starters, anyone building the '50 Chevy pickup needs to know, the driveshaft should be assembled the other direction, the end at the differential is fixed, the instructions are incorrect. The other thing I've done so far, is correct the running boards, by shaving down the perimeter so the ribs stand proud, not recessed lines, that's a pet peeve of mine with this kit. Another pet peeve, is the firewall should be flush with the front of the cab, not recessed back, but that requires reworking the recess for the engine, so I have corrected that. Yet another pet peeve, is flat headlight reflectors, that has been corrected. Can't forget the door handles, they were shaved off, will make new ones, that will sag like the real thing. LOL The reason I put this away for so long, the interior needs a total scratch-build. The resin floor with wheel wells is completely incorrect. I am planning to not keep the wood floor boards, but make it like they put in diamond plate or a newer ribbed truck bed (will be last minute decision). I have turned the wheel well form, from Corian using the drill press. I'm now at the cardboard mockup stage, which will become part of the plastic form to vacuum-form the interior panels. I have the tailgate done, used eye glasses hinges, and interior panel is done. I'm now working on the driver seat, which I had previously cut down from the bench seat, but was incorrect. I am also making a new gas tank, based on the drawing in the repair manual that I kept from owning the real '48 5 window. Next steps are: bed sides with "rolled" edge, center taillight and also the other taillights, 4 on the floor gear shift, thinking about making a hood hinge with spring and latch, perhaps a roof rack that would be made of rebar, dings and dents with rust holes, will try some extreme weathering techniques. The final touch, what should the painting company name be (plan is to have spilled paint inside to use up paint)?
  2. Hello, here I show you my 1939 Chevrolet from Revell. The roof is chopped. The rear fenders were widened and moved up. The front fenders were also widened and the running boards were adapted. The chassis is changed, all suspensions and rear axle are selfmade. LS3 engine with Supercharger. The paint is Candy-Blue 2 over silver and 2K clear coat. The rims were created and printed by myself. Also the interior in Corvette C2 style
  3. The idea came afer finishing the 1958 Corvette C1 by Revell. A very nice kit. I wanted to paint it unusual because it's a kind of boring to see another red with white Corvette. I was looking for something different. So I tumbled over a light gold with black C1. This is what I wanted to paint. Black inserts on Gold. Afterwards I'm glad, that my paint wasn't enough for it. So I decided to paint it silver. The fact, that I hat teh Foose C7 already in my shelf, it would fit perfectly to it. A good plan! Aditionaly to that, I was thinking about to build each Generation in silver with black. That was the start of the ides to my "Silver Corvette Collection". A look into my shelf was disapointing: only one kit was there - and that was the 4 door C3 by Monogram. No way. I went on to buy a lot of kits in January till March 2019 (34). Now I was able to built my 7 Generations One main Point is, to Show the Evolution of the design of the Corvette. For that reason I decided, to paint them the same Color all over. Nothing has to be different. The design is in the foregroung. I did the same with the Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am in red. Another Information: they all are painted with the same Color: Revell email #99 to be on the safe side. Every model kit is protected by 2K clear cote. Everything made by airbrush. The kits, which are already done, will be in order of the "real" year of built. The kits, which will be built this year will be added whether in order they are built or at the end ot the year. I don't know so far. Definitely I'll add the convertibles this year. The 1975 C3 and 1998 C5 are in Progress.
  4. While digging through my 62 parts boxes looking for something, I discovered that I had enough parts to build another 62 Bel Air. The first one I built was way back in 2011. I thought about it for while and decided I wanted to build a small block car, namely a 283. Something that the vast majority probably bought new in 62. I sourced some white wall tires from the last release of the AMT 53 Studebaker and found a set of steel rims from the AMT 59 El Camino kit that fit the tires better than the steelies that came in the 62 Bel Air kit. I'll use the poverty caps from one of my Revell 62 kits on this. I just happened to have a 283 engine/trans from the AMT new tool 57 sitting on my bench, I sourced a 2bbl intake from an AMT 55 Cameo pickup kit, valve covers, water pump/timing chain cover, exhaust manifolds, and the starter from Revell old tool 57 Bel Air kit. I'm using the air cleaner from a Revell 65 pickup kit. Then, what to paint it? I wanted something to go along with my current 62 to 64 Impala builds, so nothing to crazy. I settled on Tamiya Mica Silver, not quite the silver that Chevys came in in 1962 but close enough for me for this build. Besides, I would have to order some silver leaf and I feared I'd lose momentum if I stopped to order paint. For my Revell 62 Builds I had bought some Model Car Garage phot-etch because the Impala SS kit did not have any SS badges for it while the PE set did. The PE set also includes bel air scripts, and the 283 fender badging. So I removed the crossed flags and "409" from the front fenders prior to painting. So, how's it going? Check out the Pics to see :-) Other 62s on my bench, Silver Bel Air, white walls, poverty caps, 2 BBL 283; Gold Impala black walls, poverty caps and base (single 4 BBL) 409; Black Impala White walls, full wheel covers, 327 4 BBL Thanks for looking and more later on...
  5. Since everyone is getting excited about Chevrolet finally producing a mid-engine Corvette, dragged this Aerovette out to take a look. It was 1980 (39 years ago) when they ditched the wankel engine and put in a proper V8. I like the design, including the Jalousie windows, and you can see some styling cues were carried into the production cars. Revell produced this in 1998. It's typical Revell quality, some flash, simplified parts, but what is most annoying is the folding box! 🙄 But it does have the highway for display. 🤓 The usual amount of parts. Turbine wheels, not really defined enough at first glance. Now this is what ticks me off about how Revell packaged their kits, I bought it sealed, figuring it could be somewhat collectible. Read about "tire burn" in this forum, opened it up and sure enough. 🤬 I don't want to spend a lot of time correcting or detailing this, just want to build Box Stock. Would replacing the window with sheet plastic disqualify for such a contest class? It would take a bunch of sanding and polishing to fix this, and cause distortion. Have the Bring Out Your Dead project to finish, before I dive into this. Also thinking of painting copper, since I live in Arizona. 😁
  6. For those wanting to make their model really accurate... Images from an eBay listing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1962-chevy-c10-truck-cab-chevrolet-1960-1961-1963-1964-1965-1966-c-10-truck-/322758065568
  7. The AMT 1966 Chevy Nova built to represent my favourite Australian Touring Car Champion - "Stormin Norman" Norm Beechey. Added a scratch built roll bar, wheels and tyres pinched from another kit, homemade decals, a rattle can exterior and vinyl paint interior. First pic is the real thing which now sits in a large private collection of historic Australian race cars.
  8. Done this about a decade ago when i first learned how to draw paths in PS. Started on a rough pencil sketch. Kept on adding details to make this. Did it with a mouse so it was a pain to learn.
  9. So I finished up my AMT 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS LS6 yesterday evening, and I think it came out ok. I will admit that I was inspired by Chris' (hpiguy) build of "Melba Toast". Did mine come out as nice as Chris'? No, not even close, but I am please with the results. I used the Model car Garage 1970 Chevelle P/E set for some interior details (window cranks, SS454 door badges, & rear view mirror). The driver's door mirror is not included in the kit, and it came from Tom's (tbill) parts box. Thanks, Tom. The 1970 Rhode Island license plate came from 15q.net. I also added a P/E radiator cap (just for fun), P/E "COWL INDUCTION" logos, and P/E fender badges.
  10. Hello everyone. I’m new to scale modeling and this is my first diorama ever. I have been experimenting with preserved sheer moss, which I have used as grass. Please, feel free to critique and give some input. It’s still a work in progress as I’m waiting for some materials to arrive. I will repost with updates as I add more details.
  11. Question: I see a 1968 Chevrolet pickup promo for sale, $110 asking price. It has a nasty crack in a bed side, missing fender logos and gas cap (I can make a gas cap). I saw a nice one for $185 at a model show. Would the AMT bed fit ok on this? Is the price out of line?
  12. Hello everyone, i finally got this Fleetside project done, and its about time to post it here. I used a lot of aftermarket photoetching parts from High light model studio and had much fun with detailing and painting progress. I did learn alot about weathering techniques and all painting is done with brush. Im already looking forward to my next project. But less talk now and more photos Workbench topic:
  13. My new project! Im going to use alot of time for detailing and painting and every progress. Hopefully its my masterpiece when its finished and done. So shortly, Its going to be something special Engine has started for progress.. Not much happened so far but maybe on next week i have more time to make some serious progress.. Engine is from kit, and those Edelbrock valvecovers are from some AMT model kit, i believe its `55 Chevy Stepside.. Im using Highlight Model Studio detailing parts for this build, and here are especially photoetch set designed for 64-66 Chevy pick ups.. First i started modifying tail lights, i am filling original places with glue and plastic sprue number plates, then i will sand them smooth and use filler later for really smooth finish.. PE light will be glued there, just when im about doing final detailing.. Body work first..
  14. Finally finished after starting in in June of 1998.
  15. So here is one that I started back in 2002. I want to get it finished because I have decided to do the same kit for the 13th Annual 24 hour build. I figured if I'm going to get one done in 24 hours, then I should get this one done first! Here is where I'm at right now. I did the wheel well trim, seat trim, dash trim, tail light trim, and hood chrome all with a Molotow 2mm chrome pen. I love it! How did I ever get by without it? (By using BMF that's how! PIA it is!) Body is painted with Auto touch up "ultra marine blue with a clear coat (I think) or else I polished it out. It has been too long for me to remember, but I think I just clear coated it. Ken's fuzzy fur carpet. I still need to do more on the dash, like instrument decals and some finer painting of the chrome. Door trim is BMF while seat trim is Molotow pen. I have a decal for the back as well, I just could not resist doing the pen on it though. Outside of tail light bezels are the pen while the inside is Testors Chrome paint. Valve covers and intake are from the AMT 62 BelAir while the block is from the kit. Thanks for looking! All comments welcomed.
  16. I started this one I don't know how long ago, probably around 2015 or so. Anyway, playing with the Yenko Nova and 68 Chevelle I thought I'd get Chevy's other heavy hitter back. What is funny is I compared this body to the AMT 68 Camaro, and I think the AMT version looks a little smaller than it should be. What do you guys think?
  17. My daughter couldn’t wait for Christmas for me to open this one!
  18. Hey guys! This is the 66 Suburban kit from revell, here it is so far.
  19. Getting back to this one final. Did some work on the interior, Tamiya Dark German grey, flat aluminum, ultra bright BMF, and kit supplied decals. I think it come out really well, just some touch up on the aluminum on the front seat. I have some Ken's Fuzzy fur for the carpet area.
  20. Calling this one done. It was a good build. Thank you to Aaronw for the help USFS decals. Might make some wildland tools for the bed in the future.
  21. Hi , guys ! This is my Impala Lowrider. The kit is the Revell police car. Greetings from Jan
  22. Ok so here is a project that I am very excited about! Building Junior Johnson's 1963 Holly Farms Impala. I took a 63' impala kit and am pretty much building the racecar from the ground up. I don't have too many pictures yet of the progress but here are a few... This was my first ever attempt to cut a door off anything. Some progress on the scratch built roll cage
  23. Hi everybody, i didn’t published here for long time ago, but when i see all positive comment on my two other post I will say then I have to show my work here ! I just begin to work on this Elky , I like the new goodies in that edition , soap box, decals and new Torque Thursh wheels and red line tire ! My work began by assembly the rear bed, seats, and the big block Chevy 396 ! I choose to use the Torque Trush wheels with redlined tires! Due to that I removed the white lettering from the yires other side !
  24. 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 ...
  25. 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.
