  1. Been wanting one in the collection for awhile. The kit isn't bad. Still AMT puzzles me with their kits. You finally start to put side mirrors with the kit. Excellent. You also add decals that are more than lisence plates and race decals. Awesome! However, once placed on the model you can barely see the decal. Not cool. Also, you have headlight lenses for the custom kit, but not the stock version. WTF?!

  2. Here’s my AMT ‘77 Pinto! Painted Tamiya X-7 gloss red exterior with Folk Art Engine Red craft paint on the interior. This kit is pretty low in detail and the final fit and finish isn’t great, but it all comes together pretty good in the end. I’m definitely pleased with the final results!
  3. Something I never thought they made, my dad had one of these in real life back in the late 70s. It was red with a red interior, six and a three on the tree, and poverty hubcaps. I used to drive it around for him. I remember it was LOW, I pretty much towered over the roof (and I'm about 5' 10"). Even with the six it scooted fairly well so to have a 352 in it would have been very scary. I may have to paint this red in tribute to the real one but it will have a v8. More information at the link below. Thanks for looking and enjoy! Pictures of box, box contents, and instructions here
  4. Painted Tamiya TS-75 Champagne Gold with TS-65 Pearl clear. Interior will be black. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  5. Got some color on the 'bird today, Tamiya TS-60 Pearl green Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed!
  6. Another annual review! The thing about these old annuals is, the box tops tend to get boring after awhile!! Have a safe Easter. Pictures of the box, box contents, and instructions here
  7. Another one I just acquired. More pictures of the box, contents and instructions here Thanks for looking
  8. I have a 427 version, but I also wanted the 289 version with the grill and bumpers. It's not a bad kit, but I don't like it in 1/25 scale. It's pretty tiny. SAM_0025 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0026 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0027 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0028 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  9. Been wanting one in the collection for awhile. Finally, found one cheap so i got it. SAM_0019 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0020 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0021 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0022 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0023 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0024 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  10. The "Buy me now" button is sometimes too hard to resist! I got this so I could use the custom pieces on the new AMT 62 Bird, and they work! Super cool eh? Others coming in the next few days are a 62 Ford Galaxie convertible, 64 Ford Thunderbird, 64 Lincoln convertible, and a 65 Thunderbird, all annuals. Then that's it, I've shot my budget for this year. Thanks, enjoy, and stay safe out there !As always, more box pics, contents, and instructions at the link.
  11. Here is another one I just received, the 63 Ford Convertible annual kit. The instructions I got in the kit were bug chewed or something so they were not really photo quality. Lucky I found a set if instructions at the Drastic Plastic Foki site. More pictures of the box contents, box, and a link to the instructions at the link below
  12. Pictures of box, box contents, and instructions here Thank you and enjoy!
  13. Got this kit at a Hobby Lobby sale. It's an AMT kit. It's not bad at all. Makes for a very nice build. Note that if you put the Continental on the back you will not be able to have the rear plate.

  14. THIS IS A RE-BOOT OF MY OLD THREAD. I first started work on this Galaxie in 2013. The thread for that can be seen here. I hit a problem with the body paint and put the kit back on the shelf… until now! Unfortunately, soon after I put the kit away, Image Shack started charging for their image hosting and all my pictures on that thread were lost! This is why I'm having to re-boot the thread. This kit has always had a special place in my memories. I built a Barris 'Cruisin USA' kit when I was a kid - it was one of my first models I ever build. It came out pretty well (by my standard of the day). I wish I had kept it, but many years down the line I have no idea what happened to that model (but I a few of the parts have turned up in my spare parts box!). I found a more recent re-issue of the Galaxie on eBay. It has been started and is missing the engine. I thought it would be great to do this kit again - only this time, I'd like to think I have a better set of building skills. My intention is to build a 'tough as nails' street machine with modern day 'real-world' upgrades. I'm thinking lowered suspension and monster V8, standard bodywork with simple de-badging and plenty of detail. The first area needing attention is the floor/chassis... Well, that's as much as I can add in one post. There are over 100 more pics chronicling the build right up to the body paint stage - where it all went wrong! I will try to get this thread up to the current stage by posting a batch of images at a time (as I find them). With a little encouragement from everyone out there I hope to rekindle my enthusiasm in this build and finish it off.
  15. I found this 1938 Ford Custom Van from Lindburg a while back...I think at an Ollies. The kit is almost 100% box stock with the exception of the door handles, they came from the spare part box. Took her to the car show...
  16. Sounds like the 1/25 AMT '63 Ford Galaxie 500 is being reissued in 2020 as kit number 1186. Your guess is as good or better than mine what the box art will look like, so maybe this?
  17. After a 10 year hiatus, I started building again this year. I am putting this up to get some motivation to stay on target, any suggestion welcome. I am starting with 2007 Revell version of 1932 "big duce". I have combined my love of hot rods and ww2 airplanes, I have seen some on the net and thought I do my interpretation, and try to look a little deferent then the others. This is going to take some time, but I have to finish this one or the wife will kill me, this one is pricy. ( I have a lot half fished kits in the closet ,over the years) So I am building it based on a p-51 mustang " Rebel Queen" flown by four time ace Fred Glover. I building it as if he or his mechanic built it after the war in 1947. It will have shinny paint and some chrome, as if it was going to be a show car or what they fantasized what the p-51 could of looked like if not in war. Channeled body, laid back wind screen, Fighter gages, bomber seats, joystick handle shifter and other goody's. Wish me luck. Laz The first pic, the plane. The second, the nose art with Crew Chief S/Sgt. John E. Wilson The third, is Major Frederick W. Glover. The forth, is the car I started with for photo shop. The fifth, is final rendering.

    49 Ford

    I think this is a '49 but I built it so long ago, I ain't sure. It was on display in a Johan case for many years. Now it's gone baby gone. When I was a kid, a teenager two doors down had one of these with loud mufflers. M dog would chase him every time he passed the house.
  19. Looking to take the 65 F100 and make it into a dually. I know that the F350s had larger diameter wheel wells up front but I am not too worried about that. My main concern is the suspension. Specifically, would those be I-beams as well? I knew that they introduced them in 65, but would the 2wd F350s just be a straight axle with leafs? Or what are they. Cannot tell from pictures. Thanks.
  20. I am looking for some info on this old Falcon junker I got years ago in a big parts lot. It is molded in white plastic like a regular model kit. Is not the funky plastic some promos are made of. Can't seem to figure out the year it represents. 60,61,62,63? Seats seem to be a different pattern from any others I have seen. Thanks for any help.
  21. AMT 1994 Ford Mustang GT built pretty much OOB but swapped the wheels out for Fujimi aftermarket units along with meaty disc brakes behind. Body badges cast separately using silicon molds and liquid styrene, then painted silver. Side scoops and bonnet vents opened up. Rattle can yellow exterior and black interior.
  22. Another Norm Beechey car. This was the first ever Ford Mustang in the world to win a touring car race. The AMT Mustang kit was built pretty much out of the box. The plain steel wheels were detailed and tyres taken from my parts box. Decals are Patto's Place and paint is rattle can. The rear of the grille was sanded down and replaced with a fine mesh. The piece under the front bumper represents an oil cooler and the stance mirrors the real car. The window glass was replaced with clear acetate all round.
  23. Good morning all, I finally was able to get back to the bench after a long absence do to shoulder surgery and I jumped in with the new Boss 302 kit from Revell I did like this kit and thought it went together well I started by adding the basic plug wires and heater hoses but didn't go to extreme on details as I really was using only 1 arm then at the advise of my Brother inlaw I went with a Calypso Coral paint scheme i am happy with the way it turned out please enjoy and any comments or critiques are always welcome Thank you

    Ford GT

    I started this one a months back and put it back in the box several times. Mainly to finish my Audi s1 rally car. This has been a chore, it’s been re-painted three times. Started out as French Blue. Then dropped twice with various parts flying off. It painted like the Shelby team GT 40 . Colors are semi gloss metallic grey and semi gloss black for the nose. Carbon decals ( Tamiya extra fine) were used in the interior and the rockers and rear diffuser and on the nose trim. As well in the engine area. Wheels are sprayed titanium silver. It has a gold huge to it. Not my best effort, but done. Just have to add the license plate. I wanna take a picture outside in the sun tomorrow.
