Scale I Build

  1. I just recently took all the vacation, sick time and FMLA in order to come to U of W to have both knees receive a new interior meniscus cartilage tissue from cadaver. No weight for 8 weeks so my dear wife purchased this Level 2, 1970 1/2 Chevy Camaro model to build because she knows her attorney husband will go crazy just watching television or reading books and legal materials! I haven’t put a model together since I was 10 yrs old, so this is a first for me really, but I’m looking for a site that sells 1/18th or larger scale models to build.
  2. I'm building a kit bash camaro. I am wondering if anyone makes resin car seats. Does anyone make camaro seats? Is there a site I can go to and find custom interior for models? Worst case if anything let me know what kind of model kit to search out for these parts. I'm trying to find these exact seats/interior for my build. I believe these are from a 73 camaro.
  3. Nice re-release of the classic 83 Z28 kit. Minimal flash, nice chrome work, decal sheet is clear. No big new surprises on this one, just a good repop of an older kit. Would have liked some different tires though, just personal opinion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mLIfObfE2oY
  4. Soooooo a question about paint..... The yellow on the hood and the yellow on the body are different shades. I put another layer of paint on the body to try and even it out, as that's the lighter of the two. What else can I do to improve the look, and make it look really glossy??
  5. Got this 2010 Chevy AMT Showroom Replicas Camaro kit from eBay a long time ago and final had a cool idea. I ordered the decals from Bill Bozo and painted the car with German Silver metalic. The decals are top notch and well worth the almost month long wait. Took some artistic license in placing the decals on the front. The words could not be placed together as they are in the Chargers because of the vent on the front. Took a bit of artistic license with the blue interior tail lights. Found a "Call #677" plate and scaled it down. The two antennas on the drivers side are custom built, while the ones on the passenger side I found in a box or spare parts. You can see the radar display mounted to the dash behind the windshield. The radar itself is made from various sizes of styrene with pieces of clear sprue in each end. The spotlight is made from a head light from a '29 Ford Roadster. I made the computer out of a piece of styrene in which I printed a screen and keyboard then attached it to a piece of round styrene and attached it to the center console. Hard to see in this picture, but there is a custom CB radio in the center console, just in front of the cup holder. Caught some young whipper snappers out driving their '66 El Camino on the back roads. Thank you for looking.
  6. Coming in August 2017...
  7. Happy Saint Patrick's Day, friends! I stopped at Hobby Lobby after work and picked up this brand new Round 2/AMT 2017 Camaro SS "Fifty" edition. I haven't seen a review for this kit, so I decided to take some photos and let you know what I think about it! Please leave some feedback and share your thoughts on this kit. I've only been back into building for the last couple of years, so please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this is the first completely "new" kit from any of the Round 2 brands. I've been looking forward to this one and I'm not even the biggest fan of Camaros. The body is molded in what looks like the factory correct color "Nightfall Gray Metallic", credit to RandyB. for identifying that color. The shrinkwrap sticker on the box said this kit was molded in black, so I was surprised to see the body molded in this color. You're going to need to paint it as the plastic is very swirly. The body on this kit feels very flimsy and thin. You can see the actual print through the roof when held to the light and you can also so how thin the plastic is near the door handles. Very disappointed in that! There are a couple mold lines to look out for on the front clip and over the rear wheel well. Note: This is looking from the top of the car and down. The area near the door handles look almost like a non-fill issue. The piece count is very nice for this kit. The parts are molded in black, metallic gray, silver, clear, chrome and transparent red. I'll go into a more detailed look at these trees down below. As like the body, all of the large pieces in this kit feel brittle and flimsy at the same time. I really hope that only my kit is like this and it's not an issue across the board. That would be a real bummer. The frame, chassis and floor pans are all one solid piece. This may be similar to the snap version of this kit, but I'm not sure. If you look, you'll see the driveshaft is even molded in. The rear seat detail will disappear under a coat or two of paint. Very poorly molded or mastered. The wheels look pretty cool for this car. I wish that the bow tie was a lot more visible, instead of the blob it looks like. The clear parts in this kit however, are some of the best I've ever seen! Lots of detail and thought went into these pieces. I love the tail lights and the defrost lines in the rear window. The black window trim is a great touch and gives you one less problem when detailing the kit! The tires look good and they're directional. They are not branded, however. I hope that Round 2 doesn't go the same way Revell-Monogram has gone. The last photo is of the decals. Like all of the other Round 2 releases, these are very brilliantly printed. If you've stuck around through my ramblings this long, I thank you for your time. I'm not sure that I'll ever get around to building this kit. I've got so many other projects started or that I want to start and I don't see this one knocking any of those out anytime soon. It's a nice kit and looks very accurate, but it has flaws that shouldn't exist on a newly tooled kit that was made 3 months ago. If you have one, let me know how yours is! Until next time!
  8. With this being the 50th Anniversary of the Camaro I thought it might be fun to start a build thread for those interested. Any Camaro from the past 50 years, stock, race, etc could be done. I was thinking the build could be for fun, no prizes. I really don't know how to run a group build or what needs to be done to get one off the ground. Thoughts?
  9. One of my other builds I started with a big scratch built turbo. It's gonna be another small tire car with a tube chassis.
  10. This is the monogram motorworks 85 Z/28. Anyone who knows this kit, knows the kit came with a 305ci Cross fire injection engine. The motor is a two piece design. The lower half was molded to the chasis. The upper half was pushed into the lower, and the intake pushed into the upper. The driveshaft, panhard rod(torque arm), and rear axle were all one piece as well. I cut the motor out of the chasis and the driveshaft and torque arm off the axle. I replaced the 305 with a 350 from another camaro. Took the valve covers out of my parts box. And bought a tuned port injection on ebay. The driveshaft is out of the parts box as well as the torque arm which is more of a tubular performance look than the standard arm. The wheels are pegasus 19" iroks and I put the disc brakes on it again from the parts box. Wish I still had the mirrors. Paint is actual chevy color. Cut down and painted springs up front. Hope you like it!
  11. Hey all! I'm still pretty new to the model scene but have loved so far what I've seen on this forum. There's a lot of amazing talent around here and it's definitely inspiring. This is my first finished model while being a member on this forum. I always want to improve on my model building so constructive criticism is always welcome. Thanks for looking!
  12. Built back in the 1982 to 1984 era. I liked this one! In fact, I liked it so much I got a sealed kit from ebay a few years ago to redo it. Painted Testors' White enamel with a black interior. I made a custom twin turbo intake system for it :-) Pictures of the sealed kit I have. Thanks for looking :-)
  13. Box isn't in as good of shape as the 92 was :-) Nothing is wrong with the kit, I just didn't have the frame in right. The instruction sheet. I'm using this kit for the frame and engine. Thanks for looking!
  14. A couple of weeks ago I managed to get this kit from Evil-Bay & thought I'd share the contents. When I got the kit it was still sealed :-) so I just had to smell that smog laced 1992 air that was in the box :-) The box cover models look really good, I give kudos to the person(s) who built them. One side showing the red "custom" version and 2 of the 3 engine options.. The other side giving the specs of the car and kit. Cool huh? The sheet is not too bad, two sets of stripes in red and black, the trunk lid "25th anniversary" decal, and some under hood markings. Not to shabby although I wish they had included a dash decal as well. The stock wheels are molded closed, so I'm going to have to open up those slots by sanding down the back of them. A pretty good set of Goodyear tires. The only bad place on the body after a quick examination. Shouldn't be too hard to fix. One of the better small blocks AMT/MPC made, lots of detail and separate parts :-) The funky "O Ring" equipped exhaust manifolds are for the turbo installation. Yes, they were still putting on a single exhaust system on Camaros in 92! Roll cage & car phone! Remember those? A fairly decently detailed suspension system with pose-able front wheels, cool! To do the nose right, I should cut out the driving lights and open those slots up. Not sure if I will or not though. Some choice selections from the instructions. The basic engine assembly, here you choose which intake to use. We can't forget that radar detector now can we? Cool place for the car phone. Thanks for joining me in this trip down memory lane :-)
  15. I've been away from models for a while but have just recently got back in and couldn't be happier. This build will be using the Reher Morrison third gen camaro, but will be built a little different. I've always loved third gens and have a 1:1 of my own. I will be adding some extra details with parts from Ted's modelling marketplace. Thanks for looking!
  16. Wow,,been seeing some great stuff on here today,,{not refering to mine as much} Anyways,,I dig the NNL shows here in SE Mich. I was at last one DAMM show,,and its cool the stuff you find in ziplock bags for 3-5$,,1/2 started glueblobs of beauty. This was such a case,,its supposed to be a turbo mtr,,and it came w/the turbo setup,but I like the reg mtr setup,,so modified that to reg carb setup,scratch built some side pipes,scratch built roll bar,did some minor wiring.plumbing in mtr bay. Painted w/testors quikdry enamel,,and flat sand interior. It didnt have the stock front grill in kit,so I got a grill from the spare parts bx,mounted behind air inlet in front grill area. All in all,it was worth the 5$. Just a hats off to MCM for adding my 1/12 67 Vette in your 2016 contest mag,,i grabbed 3 copies! Thanks so much,,S
  17. A great eBay purchase. Bought on Wednesday and arrived today. Have some duplicates of the Mustangs, but that is quite alright! This is my second attempt. Sorry Harry, but would you please move this to "What did you get today" Thanks
  18. My good friends bought this restored 327 1967 Camaro last year and of course with the excellent Revell kit out, had to build a tribute for them. Hand made the cowl hood, steering wheel, BM QuickShifter and hand-painted the "Camaro Club of the Rockies" logo sticker on the rear window, and photo-shopped their actual Colorado Vintage license plate. Pretty happy with the build. The 1:1... of course The tribute... The actual car and Club decal 1:1 Hand made steering wheel with Camaro PE center, added door locks and hand-made BM Quickshifter Handmade triangle air-cleaner and MSD system on firewall
  19. So, im back, unfortunatly the bel air and the f1 im planning to build has to go on the back burner as i need to get my 1:1 scale car on the road by july for bug jam, if i can, and i need every penny i can for that, so i will be doing some stuff with the kits i have that are in boxes or that im part way through,i got this and a vw beetle that i will be working on for the mean time. So, i got this kit a little while just for the sake of it, it was cheap, i like the camaro, the '69 aint my fave year but its the best set the model shop had. Not sure what i will do to it, i will probably just go stock, or close to it, which will be strange for me as i like to just go all or nothing with kits and my 1:1 car, but it will be some good practice. And here is the build so far, engine painted, chassis put together, the rest is just dry fitted: And there it is for now, i will be painting the dash and sorting that out tomorow, and will look more into the engine in question, i dont know how that particular dual carb setup works, i understand the dual carbs that are in front of each other, but im not sure where the throtle goes, or where teh fuel plumbs in, i also havent got the distributor on yet, i lost it... i will also be putting up my vw beetle build, and try to work on both. there is also a secret project that im working on, but im not happy with brush painting after painting that set, so im waiting until i paint it with a car before i upload that one.
  20. The El Camaro you see here is a project I started during Winter 2014, and just recently completed a couple of days ago. The Model is a mix of an unfinished Revell 1978 El Camino Model I had laying around, and Monogram's Frank Iaconio's Pro Stock Camaro. I have always wanted to see what an IROC style El Camino would have looked like, so this was a great chance to try something and have a bit of fun with the surgery. The final bodywork is not my best but I just wanted to wrap up the project and move on to something new. The Interior is basically the stock El Camino interior except for the seats which are from another IROC donor model. I hope you guys enjoy the pics!
  21. My last model of this year, a Camaro modified to look like a Pontiac trans am (please don’t killme) a little work on the front the rest is out of the box, yes I design and print the decal, no more to say enjoy and comment
  22. Hey folks Could do with a little guidance. I have the Revell Yenko Camaro which to my eye is a superb kit, so nice that I'd like to get at least one more, but I'm a wee bit unsure as to which of the currently available kits are (relatively) new releases and which are re-treads of the older Monogram kit. Over to you folks, any help is very welcome. Ian.
  23. Hello. I'm new to these forums. I've got a few post-apocalypse cars in my collection that I'd love to share. Here's my favorite and the last model that I have completed. It's a AMT1970 Baldwin Camaro. Had a blast making it. Hope you enjoy. http:// http:// http:// http:// http://
  24. C1 Models from the UK. The Mustang kit consists of fender flares, deck lid spoiler, front splitter and intake ducts
  25. Big Tire N/T Camaro "Copper Head" with a 5.3 Bore Space Nitrous car pics do no justice to this color im thinking a decal on the scoop not sure what grill to go with will most likely be black. Backhalf car = stock location firewall and stock front frame rails w.i.p still. Pics are outside
