Scale I Build

  1. Just a box stock curbside build. Flocked & detailed interior. Painted with Model Master metallic black & metallic silver with acrylic clear on top.
  2. I need 1/12 scale parts. I purchased the 1/12 scale Foose 1969 Camaro and I am looking to purchase an LS engine for it with a supercharger and a Tremec. I'm also looking for an RS front grille with the hideaway headlight doors. I have pictures of what I'm looking for. Call or text me at (904) 826910 or email me at nfranklin.btbears2017@gmail.com. I will negotiate a fair price for these parts. I prefer unpainted resin parts; because those seem to be cheaper.
  3. 67 Camaro No Time All Motor Street Car. Powered By a Vcg Resins 572(close to 1:1 CI), Turbo 400 Transmission & Dominator Carburetor. Was paid to build as a father day gift the 1:1 is in the pics. The Pro Stars and Drag lites are from Madmodeling. Car is on 28x10.5 slick and stock suspension. Street Cars in grudge racing are classified as Full Interior(Backseats & Fronts, only a roll bar & full exhaust no side exit headers). Has stock fuel cell hood had some last minute paint problems so I will be sending it to him this week. This is probably my only truly complete build Lol & 1st completed 1 of 2015. Hope you all enjoy.
  4. This was built using the Jada Toy plastic body and the rest of the parts came from the good ol parts box. Mr Hobby paint and Slixx decals
  5. This model was built for Moson model show 2015 in Hungary and it took me 8 days from start to finish. Some flaws are present because i was rushing this build, but it will remind me that i have to start building a kit earlier than one week before it needs to be finished The model is almost box stock, i only added engine wiring, BMF trim and light bulbs to the headlights.
  6. Hi there ! Here is my last realisation, a 1969 Camaro SS. This is the 1/25 Baldwin motion kit from Revell. That car has been sitting in a field for a while, so the rust has began to attack the body, but it's still solid and in a pretty good shape... but a restoration is needed... as soon as possible. The last owner has installed a Baldwin Motion style hood and Cragar wheels, but let the car in a field a few years later.... Well, I let you see some pictures !
  7. Loved the first kit so much I went out and got another. There's still a few flaws and I'm putting the finishing touches on them. I just wanted to get the pics while it was nice and sunny out; we're expecting rain soon. The color, of all the big bottles of yellow paint they could have, is Blue Angels Yellow oddly enough. As always I built it stock for my collection.
  8. Call this one done. I could not find a outside mirror for it,but at least 7 rear view mirrors,typical. This one has the rear view mirror molded into the window AMT 68 Camaro Z28,orange car on box,tons of flash and little detail. VCG Resin brake booster. AMT 67 Impala engine.transmission heater hoses and mid-muffler forward exhaust. Shorten drive axle. Tamiya TS30 base and TS13 clear. Stock rallye wheels with Pegasus alu sleeves. Rubber alternator/fan belt cut from rubber sheet i got from Mike DeLuco. Engine decal from VCG Resin and Slixx. Bent some chrome sprue over a candle to try make the exhaust a little fatter. Here are some pictures, Thanks for looking.
  9. hello folks... here is my ´67 Camaro i build as a daily driver. the kit is from revell and i add some modifications i made a vinyl roof, side windows a custom grille with hidden turn signals. i wheels i used are a little to big but i had no other this time. have fun greetings maik
  10. Hello. After little building because of weather i decided it was time to get going again. I thought i`d give this old Camaro a chance. It is molded in "lovely" orange and have tons of flash,but after some clean up,fitting and mock-up it is starting to look like a car. Still have the dead cow in trunk stance,i think it`s mostly because i have not glued the body to the chasis yet,but i`ll get on it. The wheels are sleeves from Pegasus with inserted original Rallye wheels. The engine who follow the kit was a joke. I had a spare 427 from the 67 Impala SS who got it`s home in this one,and it fit pretty good. I will also try use the plumbing from the Impala,and i found a period correct brake booster on Ebay,not to be found in the kit. Color and clear are from Tamiya. I thought i`l let it rest over night before i start fondle with BMF. This is the kit. Here is where i am at now. Thanks for looking.
  11. Hey. I just got this the other day in a trade. I have a long way to go before I undertake this mission such as finding parts that I'd like to use. I may have a few parts from it that I want to get rid of from this. If so, I'll post them up in the trade section. Wheels will be my first quest. Thanks for looking.
  12. Hi all! New member on the forums here, but been lurking for a couple of weeks checking out all the great work I did an intro thread already, but to summarize, this is the first model i've built since i was 10. Learned a lot from the posts here and decided it to give it a full go with the AMT 1970 Baldwin Motion Camaro! I've always loved the look of this car, but not a huge fan of the green color. So i plan to build it OOB and try a different direction with the paint job. I bought this just after Christmas and got straight to work, but i didnt realize how much time it takes to have everything prepped and have all your supplies ready. After some obvious delays, i finally got started. Didnt take any before pics but it was straight out of the box anyway, typical white mold and some chrome pieces. I didn't want any chrome on this biuld so i stripped it all and then got onto the engine assembly. The engine build was pretty straight forward, then i moved onto the chassis and interior. At this point, i wasn't sure what color i was going to paint the body, so i played it safe and went with a gloss black interior, i figured that would look fine with any color of paint. Chassis was painted flat black. Boring i know, but had to start somewhere We're about a week into the build here, working only an hour or so a night. Finally got the chassis set up and moved onto the body. AFter banging my head against the wall to find just the right color, i had a revelation. My wife's digital camera is this fantastic 'satin red' that shimmers just right in the light and is a deep red otherwsie. I thought that would look cool on the sleek body and decided to paint the trim [bumpers, etc] flat black to contrast it. I must have gone to 4 different hobby shops in my area with the camera in hand trying to compare but it was extremely difficult to tell how the color would look paint on plastic. After some research online of different colors, i found some pics that look like what i wanted and traced it back to Testors Red Metal Flake laquer (spray)! So i got a can and went to work, sprayed 2 light coats of the Red Metal Flake and did a side by side comparison of the car and the camera. What do you guys think?
  13. Ok haven't Posted here in a while since projects have either had some bad paint job or go unfinished. Anyway 69 z28 Revelle Camaro kit thinking grudge/Outlaw 275 class. Sits on 275 Drag Radials stock suspension (Leaf Springs The Suspension is not in also btw).Cut trunk lid off & made a fuel pump for first time not sure if i'm going to use that fuel cell though. I Lowered the front suspension, Scratch made the new front bumper, made cowl hood. Made new headers to come out the front bumper like on mustangs, I've only seen 2 with front exits/horns. BBC with turbo 400 trans going to try and detail this engine a lot thinking 4 nitrous systems should get the job done lol and a few colors i'm thinking
  14. I'm trying to build the revell 69 camaro z-28 using the white decals. After applying them, I realize that they are too transparent and show the color underneath. Are there any aftermarket decals available that are more opaque? Maybe I add another set on top?
  15. Really enjoyed building this kit. The interior used upholstery inserts from Scale Motorsports I think the air cleaner is from Model Car Garage Next couple of kits I'm going to try Marcos Cruz' scribing process for panel lines. I think it will help for these darker colored cards.
  16. Ever since I found out they were making the model, I've been excited for it. I think this is the best year for the Camaro from a styling stand point. This was one of the best kits I've ever built. The pieces fit good and everything is there. There were plenty of decals as well. I only had two issues with the kit: 1. While there was a hole in the transmition for the drive shaft, there was not one in the axle of my model. So I drew some blood trying to put one in for it. I don't know if something went wrong with the molding of mine or not. But it was an issue. 2. The other issue was the tires. They have pins which have to be inserted into them. They didn't fit onto the rimes right and it took a lot of playing with it so the tires would be straight. Over all though, I was happy with the kit.
  17. Hello, I am new here to the forums and this is my first post. After several years away from building model cars as a kid, I recently decided to jump back into the hobby. I am trying to build one model a month and have so far built two cars and two trucks. I will post the trucks in the pick-up truck section. This is my first model after many years. It is a box-stock AMT 2006 Chevrolet Camaro Concept. I painted the exterior with Testor's Purple Gloss and the interior with Black Gloss (kit came molded in red). I painted the roof to look like the car had a T-top. This model was built back in March 2014. Overall, this was fun kit to build and I am fairly happy with the way it turned out. Yeah, I know it looks pretty bad but that's alright with me (first model in years)! This next model is a Revell Dodge Magnum SRT8. The exterior is painted with Testor's Red Gloss and the interior with Red, Silver, and Black Gloss. I personalized this model a bit by painting the fenders, skirts, lower parts of the bumpers, and the tail lights with Black Gloss, which was a pretty big modification for me at the time. This was built in May 2014. I am really happy on how this one turned out. That is all for now. Hope you all liked them! Currently working on a not-box-stock AMT 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS (Jack Reacher Issue). Thanks!
  18. Hi! This was the kit i started as i register on this forum a year ago. Have had some issues on the way,been putting it away and pulling it back million times. I tried to figure out a theme for it,did not want huge chromed wheels,and make it look bagged,i do like the style sometimes tho. So it is supposed to represent somthing you can drive everyday,haul down the dragstrip or throw around the track. Drivetrain is LS7 with two massive turbos,this linked to an 6speed manual,big brembo brakes,some meaty tires,the wheels are 17". The body is stock besides shaved markers,door locks,the rear wing,the front spoiler,and it`s lowered and given some agressive camber. Inside is stock beside Viper Coupe seats. I have not finished the exhaust, still waiting on some styrene rods. Color is Tamiya white pearl,the primer is actually red,this is why it looks grey. Then there are decals (i was unlucky some places) from Firebird Design if i remember right. Not everyones cup of tea,but here is some pics.
  19. Good Evening, I am brand new to this site and forum. I used to put together model cars as a teenager just to occupy my OCD, but hadn't done one in YEARS until a few weeks ago. I threw together an '07 Shelby GT500 in just a few days, not putting any effort in. That build brought back the itch, so I needed to do more. The other night I grabbed the '69 Camaro kit to work on. Unfortunately this is going to be another quick build, without the detail I really want. I'm not in a financial position to get all the extra tools and things that I want/need to really slow down and do a great build. Not working with any primer, sanding, etc for now, though I hope to be able to collect these things for future builds. I am still trying to enjoy taking the time and hopefully doing an acceptable job. Below are some pics; I started with the engine block, and added quite a few of the added parts. Any comments, tips, or critiscism is welcome. I'll be posting more as I progress with the project.
  20. Box Stock Revell Kit with the exception of Wheels & Tires from a Vette and I changed the exhaust and added tips. Paint is Testors "Toxic Orange" over black with their wet look clear. The Toxic orange is a close match to the factory "Sunset Orange" . Interior is 2 tone black and grey.
  21. I have yet another question regarding the 1969 COPO ZL-1 Camaro from Revell . I recognise that this kit has de facto SS/RS grille / headlamp doors , as well as RS tail lamps ; however , it is "missing" the RS's back-up lamps . I also have noticed that there's a set of clear , square 'lamps' on the "glass" tree ; are those the RS's back-up lamps ? If so , how would one go about adding them to this COPO ZL-1 Camaro kit ?
  22. Just picked up a IROC-Z Camaro made by Monogram in 1985. The kit # is 2610. Don't see many out there. Anyone had this or know value?
  23. I gave this kit to the wife for Christmas as her first kit. I prepped, primered, & painted the body & she built it. The kit stripes are stickers so I couldn't get them to lay totally flat. Thinking about either removing them altogether or replacing them with waterslide decals. Any suggestions? Sorry for the blurriness of these pics. Still trying to get the lighting figured out.
  24. My finished p/s camaro. Fully wired and plumbed. I added valve stem on rims. 1st time I have detailed one this much, I hope you enjoy looking,
  25. I had some issues with this build, luckily I had a little help from hawk 312, as im sure you know his are some of the best around so I had some pretty good tips, i liked the color it was molded in so I actually have no paint on it, just a ton of polish and wax. The pics dont really show the finish but in person you could never tell it wasn't painted and cleared. I also got the idea of the window sticker from hawk, thanks man. I cant wait to start the build of the new foose I got. This one will get the full paint and polish treatment.
