  1. Revell is back with the full paint and assemble NASCAR kits, first off the line is this Ford Fusion in Kevin Harvick #4 Jimmy John's livery. Looks great, no name tires but that is easily solved and most of us will want to letter those tires for sure. Glass is super thin and prepainted, roll bars are nice and thin, no short shorts or mold issues. Even includes a figure and full decals of course. Aftermarket guys will make a mint selling every race stable colors imaginable. I'm really excited about the Napa Chevy SS kit, I just like the Napa colors. https://youtu.be/GSILqvW28mQ
  2. I finally got it done! I'm blown away by the detail the Lowrider guys put into their cars. Some of them are more like jewellery, than cars. I hope to get better at building lowriders and get my paint more precise. I love the chrome and the wild colours and I want to build more of these. I only added a few bits n bobs; Subwoofers, Pegasus Daytons, resin rotors and calipers. But most of the time was spent masking, painting and waiting for it all to dry between the many coats of clear (15, I think). Then a lot of wet sanding and polishing. Paint was from rattle cans, which prompted me to order an airbrush. I realised how much paint I've been wasting, when I looked at my bit of cardboard I use to protect my lawn from the paint.! I think I spent about £50 on paint for this 😳 Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms welcome

    1983 H/O Cutlass

    Here is my take on the Revell 1983 Hurst Olds Cutlass... Body is Painted Testors Model Master Black lacquer and Testors One Coat Diamond Dust. The Interior is painted Tamiya Maroon... Tire decals from Fireball Modelworks. This really is a nice kit. One that I was excited about from it's announcement. It goes together very well. Grab you one, You won't be disappointed. I still have to get some better pictures, but these will have to do for the moment.. And as always, Thanks for looking.
  4. I'm building a replica of Ron Grable's 1967 Dodge Dart Trans Am race car. I'm using a Revell Dart kit with the engine from a Mopar Kit Car circle track racer. The Dart kit I have doesn't have any windows. Does anybody out there have them? I've attached a picture of the car. I don't own the picture. It's for reference. The most memorable car race I ever watched was in the summer of 1967 at Willow Springs Raceway. It was an SCCA National. Racing for the lead the entire race were Dick Guldstrand in his '67 Camaro and Ron Grable in his 1966 Dart, the car this one replaced. They swapped the lead many times during the race. During the last couple of laps a desert thunder shower started. On the last lap up the hill in Turn 3 Grable dove under Guldstrand as they entered the corner and took the lead again. He then pulled away a little really driving over his head in the quickly getting slippery conditions. Grable came around the big flat sweeping turn 8 and into the nasty decreasing radius hook that was Turn 9 then. Then his car spun around into the infield of the exit of 9. He kept the throttle on full bore and spun around 360° in the infield desert dirt and rocks, lost in the cloud of dirt in the air, and jumped back onto the track nearly T-boning Guldstrand. Somehow, they missed contact and thundered up the front straight for Guldstrand to win by a few feet. From the pits, we could see them gesturing to each other inside the cars as they went around the cool-off lap. Everybody around thought they were arguing. As they pulled into the pits, they both jumped out of their cars and ran towards each other. It was looking like they were going to brawl. But they hugged each other and slapped each other on the back congratulating each other on a great race. They were smiling and laughing. I heard one say "more fun than the law allows".
  5. My '77 k-10 Chevy. I absolutely loved this build & look forward to building more trucks in the future. This is my first taste of two tone painting & am very pleased with the way it turned out. I put a lot more time & detail into the engine & cab & I really believe they make the truck much more outstanding. If anyone has any comments, or constructive criticism please give a reply. I really want to get better. Thank y'all
  6. My '65 Chevy c-10 stepside. This was the second model car I ever built. I actually went back & redid a lot of the paint but as you can tell I'm sure, all of the glass is missing. Glue was smeared all over it so I thought it looked better without it. Very proud of this & I'm very happy that my builds have only gotten better as time has gone on
  7. Here's my revell '69 stingray corvette with a 427 size engine. This is an older build of mine so it is not near the quality I would like, but I still take great pride in this as a part of me is invested. If anyone sees anything I could improve upon or do better please say something. I want to get better
  8. Here's my revell '69 nova SS with a 350 size engine. This was a huge milestone in my building as this was my first paint job to turn out flawlessly. I absolutely loved this build and I put as many drag racing options as I could into it, while still keeping it a street car. If anyone sees anything I could improve upon or do better please say something. I want to get better
  9. Know about the whole Photobucket thing and I never liked that service much anyway, so now I can post directly on the forum Anyway, here's 1/2 RX7s i'm working on on top of everything else on my plate. One is mostly the Cafe Racer with a big a$$ turbo and some other upgrades, and its already painted Tamiya Deep Blue Peril (will post that one later). This one is getting further body adjustments (opened up the headlight to put in some clear ones with sliver backing), suspension upgrades, and a 2005 GTO LS1 with a supercharger from the spares box. Note this may not be to everyone's taste, and this isn't some 100% perfect show stopping contest build, but a fun build. Color is undecided for this one, so stay tuned!
  10. I saw this kit on sale at my local drug store. Right away I knew what I was going to do before I even made it to the check out. The body is painted with Testors star spangled blue and the interior is a simple white. The kit is pretty much stock except lowered the suspension a bit, but once I got done you can not tell much. Took the car out for a drive on the road and apparently enjoyed the 396 too much and was caught. Thanks for looking.
  11. Revell's brand new Scooby Doo Mystery Machine. Goes together better than any other US brand snap kit I've ever assembled, really nice for the kiddos to get into kits and for us cartoon fans to enjoy a great kit too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A2tFjmN9wMg Sorry, direct URL linking is not working on the forums today or I'd embed the video as usual. I'll come back tomorrow and see if it's working yet.
  12. Is anyone building the new Revell '60s Bronco kit and not using the undersized kit wheels? I could use a set for one of my compact car projects since they scale out to 13". Trade or ? Thanks!
  13. I was bored yesterday and decided to challenge myself by building a car in less than a day. My kit of choice was Revell's re-release of the Porsche 911 carrera 3.0 which I've built as an Outlaw. I already knew tires were completely wrong so I'd already dug out another set, but I also had to find another set of wheels because the originals were simply too badly molded... I also need to find another set of door handles due to the same reason but so far no good. Other than wheels and tires it's got a bit of lowering done to it, otherwise it's box stock. The body is painted with a light dusting of Tamiya solid black, and misc. details are painted using Humbrol paints and sharpies. I'm pretty satisfied with the result considering it only took eight hours from start to finish. Here are a few pics of the car together with my first Outlaw 911, enjoy!
  14. Hello, This is my latest build. Kit from Revell, Corvette Stingray 2014. It 's still in progress so far most of the cabin has done. It is waiting to satin varnish.
  15. 1991 was the last model year that the United States Border Patrol painted their vehicles white over light green (I don't know the exact paint code). Since the BP bought Caprices as their basic patrol sedan that year, they were the last sedans to utilize this paint scheme before the agency switched to all-white cars with a green stripe the following year. The kit is from Revell, Jetsonic light bar is from the AMT Ford Taurus police car kit, and decals are from Billbozo. Paint is Tamiya Pure White over Tamiya Pearl Green and the side molding was made from Evergreen stock. In retrospect, I should have added a cage for prisoner transport but we will just say this is a supervisor's car. This is my second complete kit and again, I learned a lot from it. I mostly got to work on my BMF techniques. The only real mess up I had was that I accidentally spilled glue on the front windshield, something I was not able to fix. The real deal (courtesy of copcar.com):
  16. Looking for the wheels and tires from a Revell 1/25 scale Z06 Corvette. As shown below. Will trade if I have something you need. Thank You!
  17. A newer release from Revell, similar to the Vette racecar I reviewed. Low parts count and prepainted glass should make for a nice weekender build. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XpfWDc82oxI
  18. SSP Reissue. Build as drag coupe only, includes box art replication decals and Pirelli branded front tires, smooth no-name rear slicks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXgV48W6GUs
  19. Nice reissue. Lots of parts, can be built stock height if you wish, will require parts box wheels and tires for stock look.
  20. The latest off my bench. Revell kit went together very easily. I'm a sucker for base model cars so that's how I did this one, blackwalls, one taillight, etc. Harry would probably give me grief for no rearview mirror, but if I'm not mistaken those weren't standard equipment until much later so I left it off. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  21. The Revell Ferrari California. Paint is Tamiya. Click HERE for a look at the build process... (2012)
  22. Hey everyone! I decided to pick up one of the Revell 2015 Mustang GT kits from the build and play series. I got tired of waiting to see if there would be a full detail kit coming soon. Are you listening, Revell? People will buy this kit! Anyway, I decided to detail the interior and what little that I could on this kit, for as simply detailed it is as it stand. I just wanted a quick and satisfying build. The body was painted in Duplicolor's Storm Gray over Duplicolor gray primer. The color is close to Ford's Guardsman Gray Metallic. I'll hopefully be able to get the clear coat sprayed tomorrow and I'll try and get the interior pictures up tonight or tomorrow. Thanks for looking!
  23. Finished up the Revell Starsky and Hutch Gran Torino last week. On this build, I tried to add depth to the panel lines and I went a bit over board. This is a real nice kit and a lot of fun to build. I've got an idea for a modern take on the old striped tomato. Enjoy! Feel free to leave some constructive feedback!
  24. I used an annual 1958 Sunliner and the original Ranchero kit
  25. Probably my most ambitious bodywork project, to date. a tribute to the 1:1 I saw at a show Revell kit, with parts box engine, Pegasus wheels. Flocked, wired & foiled. Thanks for looking
