  1. Snaptite kit. Tamiya TS-11 Maroon. Wheels Pegasus Chrome T's 19' 23' combo and Pegasus disc brakes. Nice and low just how I like them.
  2. This one is done in Model Master Citrus Yellow Metallic over Testors One Coat Lacquer Diamond Dust, and cleared with Model Master Gloss Clear. Some of the extras include ignition wires, vacuum advance line, valve stems and white letters on the tires from Fireball Modelworks. I initially wasn't going to put the spoiler or louvers on, but went ahead and put them on "temporarily" with some clear elmer's glue. The interior is a custom mixture and is done in craft paints. I printed my own gauges for the dash, but my printer wasn't up to the challenge for doing the black background and they came out with a green tint. At least they go with the green theme of the car, LOL. They actually look like they are illuminated at night, so I'll go with that. The chassis was sprayed with craft paint also, as was the "overspray", although I don't think I put enough on. Even though the interior lacks detail and I would like to see some more suspension parts, I really like this kit. I did three of them in my younger days that I don't still have, and will probably add more to my current collection. Thanks for looking!
  3. Finished this one up a couple of weeks ago, but I didn't post any pics until now since it was for a box stock build-off for one of my facebook groups that ended on Dec. 1. It's the Revell 1968 Corvette Roadster done box stock with the only addition being approved BMF for the trim. This is a really nice kit and I had a lot of fun building it. The kit was painted with Chroma Molten Metals Acrylic craft paint custom mixed by my wife which I then sprayed through my airbrush, making it my very first airbrush paint job. The interior was also craft paint through my airbrush, as was the chassis. In fact, everything except a few small parts and certain details was done with craft paints (about 95% of the car) and mostly sprayed through the airbrush. The toughest part of the whole thing , I think, was picking out which pics to use for the contest. I like the looks of each variation-- No top, Soft top and Hard top-- so I ended up using one pic of each for the three allotted body shot angles. I am still learning new things, but the biggest thing I still need to learn is to be more patient and not to rush. Thanks for looking!
  4. Video and photos of the new Land Rover Series III kit, let me say, I am impressed with the kit so far, everything looks really good. And the photos, please note, these are still's from the video, so the quality is lacking and they are not color corrected like in the video.
  5. Finished with my Scooby Doo tribute build for his 50th "birthday". Revell 1969 Camaro Z28 done in Testors Root Beer One Coat Lacquer and finished with Testors Wet Look Clear. Interior is done in Rustoleum Satin Canyon Black with some BMF on the door panels. I added plug wires on the engine for added detail there and used a Metallic Silver Sharpie on the molded in brake and fuel lines. I did add a few more details on this one that I haven't done before. Thanks to some help on this forum I was able to make a pair of deep dish rims for the rear. I added valve stems on all four wheels thanks to Pat Cardinal from one of the Facebook model groups I'm in for that tutorial. I also added door lock knobs on the door panels using pretty much the same technique as the valve stems. You might not be able to tell in the pics, but I also drilled out the hidden headlight doors to show the headlights. This one fought me a little bit even though I had no problems building the same kit last year. Most of the problems were self inflicted due to rushing the project. For some reason I kept repeating my mistakes and will chalk this one up to sometimes things just don't go your way. I have to say that despite the self inflicted issues, I'm pretty happy with my Scooby Doo Tribute Car. Thanks for looking!
  6. While the Charger is swimming in the pond, I thought I'd start another project. First pic is the underside of the chassis with the subframe connectors. Second is plug wire detail. Third is engine in color and my grubby mitt.
  7. My latest project, a Revell '64 Impala SS done as a street machine. I am taking the engine and tires/wheels from the AMT 68 El Camino Street Machine kit and transporting them onto the Revell Chevy. I am going to use the lowered suspension for this build. The tires are big and littles so I will have a rake once it's done. Color I think will be Mythical Maroon. 396 Big block with street blower from El Camino kit. I'm still in the process of building the engine. Tires, wheels, from El Camino kit with headers from AMT 70 Impala kit. I had to move the transmission crossmember back for proper alignment of the engine.
  8. The 1/25 Revell '57 Ford Sedan Gasser kit seems to have slipped through the cracks, so now it has its own dedicated topic. It was mentioned (hunted at, more accurately) by Tim Boyd here...: ....that this (and it looks like another or a slightly different) variant had been planned, but never released, until now. Here are some images of the completed box stock model, courtesy of the Revell website: Chris/hpiguy has a video review, too:
  9. Hi, Well, the Revell 1990 5.0 Mustang "Drag Car" was coming along beautifully, and I got to the point of applying the suspension/steering components. While I thought I had all the parts cleaned up and painted, I realized I had not taken part # 30, the front sway bar off the sprue. As you could guess, the thing snapped in two, even though I used nippers to remove it. While often these things can be repaired, I could not do it with this. This front sway bar is part # 30, and identical with Revell's kit 4195 ('90 Mustang Drag Racer) and kit 4252 ('90 Mustang 2 in 1- police version). So I got on Revell's site and submitted a plea for a replacement. The site indicated they were "swamped" and it would be a week before I got a reply. Well, its been longer than that and my hope is failing. I realize this part will likely never be noticed as missing, but its driving me nuts. Anyone have any idea on where/how to secure one? Thank you, Bill Anderson
  10. 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! πŸ™„ But it does have the highway for display. πŸ€“ 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. 😁
  11. Revell #4496, 1/24 1986 Chevy Monte Carlo SS 2'n1, coming...soon? πŸ€”
  12. I picked up this sealed kit at the Carlisle Chrysler Nationals this year for $12. Primed and painted Tamiya Italian Red, brushed painted the wood (need to apply decals in the panels yet) with enamels. Used a light Tan and the dry brushed Dark Tan for some wood grain. Used Leather color for panels in case the decals are a little small for the panels. Cleared with Tamiya Clear. Debating on Black or Dark Tan roof. Interior will be Tan of some sorts.
  13. I'd been wanting to build a replica of an early Miata for a while, and I saw the original 1989 Miata showcar on the Mazda display at the New York auto show a couple of months back and took a bunch of pics to make a replica of the first of these cars that the world got to see. I used the Revell kit - from looking at pics online the Tamiya kit of the same model Miata looks a LOT better but is curbside, so I wanted to try one of these to get an idea of how it goes together and to see what I could learn about it for the next time I build one (or bash one from the Revell AND Tamiya kits). The kit goes together ok - you need to remove about 1/16th - 1/8th of an inch from the bottom of the windshield or it won't assemble properly, and I removed about a scale inch from the subframes to get it sitting more like the ride height of a stock Miata too. Even so, it looks a touch high, but then unlowered Miatas often do. The bumpers don't fit on there well...actually, they fit GREAT, they snap right into place but the gaps between them and the body are a little big for my liking, the rear lights would be better off being replaced with some vacuum formed ones in clear plastic (so you can paint them how Mazda intended a little easier) or the Tamiya ones would probably fit pretty well too. My kit also had a BUNCH of short-shotted parts - I had to make some engine parts from scratch, both of the windshield wipers were completely useless (so they're not on there, but that's not too obvious at least with the hood open, which is how I planned to display it anyway) and next time I do one I'd like to sand off those oversized doorhandles and get some more in-scale ones 3d printed. That said, this was a fun build, and I miss my 1:1 Miatas, so it was cool to get to put one on my shelf! I used Createx bright red paint for the body, replaced the Revell gauge decals with a photo-reduced copy from a real Miata, added some missing plumbing and wiring to the engine bay and used a couple of little photo etched pieces where a part was missing or looked a little clunky. I'll definitely be building another, even with the various shortcomings that I didn't enjoy with this kit, and it makes me want to go blast around some winding roads on a warm day with the roof down! Thanks for looking!
  14. I love Corvettes and when the new generation C7 came out in 2014 I liked but not a fan of the taillights. I decided to customize one to have the classic round C3 styling and went as far to change the rear window to the original "sail-panel" rear window. Lots of modifications including a completely new nose and grafted an L88 hood. Also filled in one of the three vents in the fenders, smoothed out the hip line and added rear wheel flares and grafted rear bumperettes like the C3's have. Some build pics show some of the major bodywork I did. Paint is Duplicolor Bahama Blue Metallic. Comparison to a "stock" C7

    570S

    RoG's McLaren 570S all done, finished in Tamiya TS21 Gold, with Semi Gloss Black and Alclad Dark Aluminium details. Interior is my own 'cream' and 'light black' acrylic mixes. The CF decals are from Ka Models of Korea (highly recommended). Not a great kit and fought me all the way to the very end - the final assembly is a proper PitA. I knew to attach the dash onto the lip BEFORE adding the interior because I'd read and seen so many build reviews. Even so, the final fit is truly dreadful... All that said, like the Ferrari 458, the finished car is truly a thing of beauty to my eye. Please feel free to make any comments or ask any questions (yes I know the exhausts aren't on yet). Best from NZ. Ian.
  16. 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
  17. Kitbash of the classic Monogram Ferrari 275P curbside/slot-car, a 1990 reissue of the 1964 kit, and the Revell 360 Modena Spyder that is sort of a curbside since the hood did not open, but had a window over the engine. Work In Progress I found the 275P at a Phoenix model swap last month, then saw the Modena and it was crazy time. Started Tax Day with a mock up, started butchering on the 18th, worked like a dog until the 3rd at Noon, just before heading up to GSL, 132 hours. I did rush it, could have spent a couple of weeks sanding and polishing, and it would probably would have ended up in the box like a few other projects. I just wanted something different than the typical super dooper shiny muscle car on the table. I didn't have time to write a build document, but had this for the description: Blasphemous and sacrilegious kitbash of a historic Ferrari race car that won Le Mans two years in a row, and another Ferrari that only has a 3586 cc 395 HP V8. Story is, this car was found in a chicken coop somewhere in Venezuela, missing the 3285cc 320 HP V12 engine and transmission, the aluminum tub was badly corroded from chicken poop. The Modena was bought at a tax auction, it was rolled by the drug dealer during a police chase. Built by a shop wanting to do a reality TV show, but never got funding because it’s just a Ferrari and not an American muscle car. Some of these pictures were taken at Page on the way home.
  18. I’m looking at options for the 50 Years of Mach 1 CBP, and I was wondering - is there a difference between these kits? If so, what is different? Thanks in advance!
  19. Does anyone make this hood in resin or 3d printed. Also looking for the decals as well in white or gold. GOD Bless, Thanks for Any Help ....

    Corvette C7

    Finished the last in the series. I like this kit, although its fairly simplified it went together well. The tough part was painting the black out ducts on the body. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  22. Gestation happened in my Monogram Ferrari 275P vintage kit review thread. I started by barely tacking the engine together and onto the chassis pan. Measured and drew plans to figure out where to chop and modify. I thought cutting down the engine components would help, and considering the way Revell engineered it, nobody would notice. Each surface was filed down before reassembling with just a little more glue, but still can separate to paint. Cut apart the plenum, air filter and canister part. Sawed off the engine bay sides. I sawed, and in some cases scribed and broke apart the chassis pan. The suspension is really non-existent, lower A-arms were easy to relocate. The back has been narrowed. Shortened the pan behind the front axle line. I glued all this with regular toxic Testors glue, and Flex-i-file liquid cement, much like welding. That way if I needed to adjust, could pull apart, and I could squirm it around for adjustment (supergluing does not allow this). I used the Dremel with this bit for everything, here I just removed the edge of the pan. I really cut apart the interior tub, with a saw, and filed down and straightened the cuts. I needed to keep this as a separate piece, for being able to get the struts in later. I tacked parts onto the pan, but welded all together as I went. I adjusted my plan as needed, kept the tunnel which will need some modification to the chrome trim part. I really like the tunnels, so cut off the rear body part, made several saw cuts. Front of the pan was sawed off, some Dremel grinding to shape, real rough at this time. But it all fits in great, and don't need an engine hump! Thinking of how to add fender flares, simple round bumps most likely. Still need to shorten front axles. Modified the rear, decided to keep the original grills, but going to be modified at the bottom, and will be mesh. Drilled holes for the Mondial taillights, have also done for the headlights. The valance edge will be refined later. I was going to have the exhausts exit through holes similar to the Mondial, but it will be easier (I hope) to direct down from the mufflers into the tunnels, and then back. Now I need to leave it alone, so the cement will cure. I discovered the body is twisted, so need to consider how to straighten with strategic body mounts using screws. The fender flares will be fun. Interior should have simple door panels, and dashboard. Need to figure out the radiator in front, thinking laid almost flat, with channels exiting before the wheels. Then when all that is done, cut off the engine lid, and then will need to fabricate chassis box thingies and framework continued from the engine part. Two more radiators in back, modify the body ducts. Then exhaust pipes. Then seats, I got some cool aftermarket units at the DSC show. Color, Ferrari red with a pearl overcoat. Dann will hate that.
  23. Rolled her off the assembly line this morning, not to happy with the final paint finish, or the ill fitting hood, but it's done and I can go on to the other Chargers I have. Painted with Testors' Sub Lime green and wet look clear, roof is Tamiya semi gloss black white the interior is Testors' lacquer primer white and Tamiya semi gloss black door panels and dash. The Hemi came from the Revell 68 Charger kit and I had to modify the exhaust system to work with the headers. Rear Frame supports (black things in front of the rear sprigs) came from a Revell 70 Charger kit. Thank you and all comments welcomed! Now, on with the show! Thanks again!
  24. Hi again! Anyone building up a Revell '68 Dart as the Hemi version? I need the stock 440's Torqueflite transmission - just the engine block halves and trans pan (parts 53, 54 and 61). Thanks!
  25. Hey, everyone!, I just wanted to show you the shifter I made for a friend. It was a fun project - in itself...a model all its own...Hope you like, thanks for looking!!
