Scale I Build

  1. Hello, I have a 1968 Camaro modified with all the technology of the 2010 Camaro. The front & rear axle with all the suspensions were installed. Also the exhaust system is from the 2010 Camaro. The center section of the new model was integrated into the hood. The taillights I have made with 3D printing. The decals are self made.
  2. First stage of painting on BM Camaro is done. I shot the auto-touch up white yesterday and the MCW rally green today. Plans call for installing the decals then clearing it with some Tamiya TS-13. Thanks for looking all comments welcomed.
  3. Yesterday I used almost a whole can of flat black paint to do the interiors and frames on two of these builds. I just had to see how they looked sitting on wheels. Thank you for looking all comments welcomed.
  4. Another Camaro project started. This time it's the convertible by Revell. Painted Tamiya TS-86 Pure Red. Here it is before the paint, mocked up with a set of AMT Firestone tires and Revell 69 Nova SS wheels. I finally figured out what is wrong with the Revell SS wheels, they are molded without the trim rings installed. A set of these from the AMT 69/70 Chevelle kit looks much better. They are the ones I'm using on the Revell 69 Chevelle. Thanks, all comments welcomed.
  5. I needed to get the 65 Impala for the engine for another project (home grown ZL1 69 Camaro). I got a Revell 69 Z/28 Camaro to build it and would have a left over 302. What to do? I'm taking the valve covers from the Revell 64 Impala and putting them on this 302, instant 327! The engine looks small in there. I have used the victor intake from a Moebius 64 Nova kit and almost have the engine built, but no pics. Here is how I'm building it. I've secured a set of Cragers from an AMT 65 El Camino kit and I need to find some tires.
  6. Another MCW body I got back in December, I am combining this with the AMT 62 Bel Air frame and the six cylinder from the AMT 60 Chevy pickup.
  7. I got this body from MCW resins and decided to combine it with a Revell 1966 Frame. The parts line up really well. Still working on tires/wheels.
  8. I recently acquired one of these for a really good price. After having a lot of the re-issues (prestige kit, the green kit one, and the latest) I was not sure what I would find. I have to tell you that the original issue of this kit blew me away on accuracy of body, engine detail, and chrome tree execution. Okay, the exhaust manifolds look more like small block ones than 409 exhausts but, it was a nicely designed kit with (except for the hideous {my opinion} custom treatment) was well executed. It's too bad Round two could not bring back all the original pieces for this kit. Thanks for looking, enjoy! More box pics and contents here!
  9. Hello again everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. The trip to Baltimore from South Dakota went great, very little rain, no snow sleet or ice! Visiting the grand kids was cool. Now, on with the business at hand, the AMT 63 Impala convertible had been soaking in purple power for ten days. I took it out and a lot of the original blue did come off, but I shot it with some easy off oven cleaner and let it soak for a couple of hours. Then I scrubbed it with a brush and here are the final results. While on vacation I kept tabs on that auction site and managed to pick up some 63 Impala original parts. Mostly all there except for the engine and body, but it also has a set of tires, hubcaps, fresh frame, and an unpainted interior. The spare parts came with original front and rear bumpers and the original box too. And the up top, which is just sitting on there right now. A little tire burn on the side, but that should be fixable. Here is how it looked when I got it. I'm not sure if I am going to use the injected engine or go with a stock one. Thanks for looking, it's nice to be back! All comments welcomed.
  10. My hometown of Oskaloosa Iowa had an amazing 1/2 mile dirt track, with Eldon Iowa, about 40 miles to the southeast, also having a very good 1/2 mile dirt oval. Both ran stock cars; Oskaloosa on Wednesday nights, and Eldon on Saturday nights. What I'm picturing here is a representative of what could be found on those tracks back in the 1970s.
  11. Painted (I think) Testors Italian Red with ultra gloss clear, interior is Tamiya medium grey. This one is the original issue. Built box stock except for swapping out the 3 barrel for triple duces. Started in 2012 and just finished today. I had to super glue the top of the firewall to the body and then the front subframe to the body to get it all together. Frustrating kit for final fitting but looks good when done. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  12. Thanks to a suggestion from this board that I build a Corvair in hugger orange, I thought instead I should get this one done first. Started back in 2008. Painted Honduras Maroon with clear coat, I have the engine done and the interior painted with Tamiya TS-69 linoleum brown. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  13. After five years, it is done! I started this one back on January 15, 2015 and just now got it done August 7th of this year. Painted Testors White Lightening with wet look clear, interior is Tamiya TS-69 linoleum brown, straight out of the box. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  14. As a companion piece to both the 69 Chevelle SS396 and 69 Camaro, I decided to build the small block version of Revell's Nova in hugger orange with Testors wet look clear. Thank you for looking, all comments welcomed.
  15. Started today, this is a companion piece for my hugger orange 69 Camaro. Painted Testors hugger orange with wet look clear. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  16. Started yesterday, I believe that anyone that builds Camaros needs to have a Hugger Orange 69 on their shelf. Here is mine. Painted with Testors Hugger Orange and wet look clear. I took off the Camaro emblems for a cleaner look. This will be built out of the box except for tires and wheels. In other words, the cross ram intake with headers and the barely there exhaust system. I'm using the non SS grille on this build as well. I have a simple black interior to go along with the orange body. I want to put the black stripes on this, I hope they cooperate. Thanks for looking and all comments welcomed.
  17. Started this one a few days ago, painted Testors Fiery orange with wet look clear. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  18. Started in 2011, I gave it a Tamiya Metallic red paint job with a wooden deck tan interior. I have some of the trim BMF but need to finish it. This got interrupted by those Corvette kits!
  19. Before I decided to get my 5 year old Corvette projects done, I started this one. Basically box stock except for a tire and wheel swap. The chrome trim on the side has held me up on this one. I need to get back to it soon though.
  20. Started back in 2015, this AMT kit is an adventure. The front and rear bumpers did not fit well so there was a lot of sanding and puttying done to correct it. Painted Testors Fiery Orange with wet look clear, interior is Tamiya TS-69 linoleum deck brown. The 454 has the single 4bbl intake. Tires are from the new release MPC 70 Bonneville kit. I still have some fitment issues to deal with. I also have an MPC 74 Corvette convertible painted the same color that I am building as a companion piece to this one.
  21. Somewhat of a partial kit, I started this one in 2015. Tires/wheels and brakes (I think) are from a Revell 59 Corvette kit, painted Tamiya TS-20 metallic green. This will have the "bag of snakes" side pipes and a tri-power 454 big block.
  22. Started in 2015, painted Tamiya TS-97 pearl yellow with TS-69 linoleum deck brown interior. This one has a singe 4bbl big block and kit supplied custom mags, tires are from Model Haus.
  23. Started back in 2015, I am finally getting around to finishing it. Painted Testors Nassau blue with Tamiya TS-54 light metallic blue interior. This will have the tri power big block in it.
  24. Finished today, painted Testors' Hugger Orange with Tamiya TS-13 clear, box stock except for the Firestone tires from an MRC tire/wheel combo. Thank you for looking, all comments welcomed.
