Scale I Build

  1. Working on a project this is one of my Dad's Cars does anyone know where I could find a set of black finned aluminum "WIEAND" valve covers like in the engine picture?
  2. Here is a project ive been working on for a while. Using the Gremlin X kit, and the 1933 Willys Gasser kit as the main donors. The main idea was a wild chromed out gasser show car. Something from the late 70's early 80's show car circuit. Name = Gizmo Color Scheme = Bright Green with Purple Windows and Accents, Chrome Everything Interior = Metal Flake Silver Vinyl with Diamond Pleats Engine = Early 392 Hemi with Hilborn Injection Overall Look = Wild. Here is the progess so far: First thing was to lop off the factory front end and make some new frame rails. I made these the correct width to accept the Willys front axle and springs. Rough Suspension Mockup Check the stance and fit of the hemi Removal of pesky fuel tank, and chassis smoothing. Suspension Mounts and new wheels and tires from Comp Resins. Switch out from the funky willys rear end to the 9" out of the AMT 62 Thunderbird Scratch built some ladder bars, and finished up the chassis mounts. (still need shocks and steering linkage)
  3. Here is my 65 Chevy II Nova, red riding hood gasser nova built from the rat pack nova,

    41 Willys

    This is my next project now that I'm finally getting my shop back together. 1/18 scale diecast 41 Willys. This is going to be a simple repaint and some small detailing.
  5. My first drag car in a while. Box stock, except for some additional engine parts and better wheels. Built to match the box art hope you like it
  6. I bought this a while ago, but I've only just got around to building it. I liked the look of the lace decals, even though the lace is a tad out-of-scale. Gold and purple always go well together, so I used purple candy over a silver base. The horrible kit wheels were replaced with some from a Polar Lights funny car. Now, I've heard it said that this kit has one of the worst Ford SOHC engines in 1/25, so I decided to pep it up a bit. I added resin pulley wheels, intake, oil filter and gear linkage. I also added a Mallory ignition module and rear disc brakes. The engine had no magneto, so I made one that looks kinda like a Vertex. A Detail Master 5-point harness and a fire extinguisher were added to the interior. I had to lift the pickup bed a bit to stop the rear arches rubbing the tyres. A note to anyone who plans to build this kit...The front axle is set too far back. The rear edges of the tyres would foul on the bodywork. I know some guys re-position the leaf springs, but I'd already painted the chassis and installed the axle before I realized my error. Luckily, I'd only fixed the front axle on with CA glue, so it came apart easily and I was able to fit it in a better position with epoxy. The kit decals were dead tricky. They seemed to stick fast, on contact with the paint. I managed to get them all on, but it was a sweaty hour. 'nuff blurb.. Here are the pics: Comments appreciated Hope you like it Thanks for looking
  7. This is my first post on the forum and my latest finished build. I call this build "Rat named Henry". It is the Revell 51 Henry J Gasser. It is rusty dusty and crusty. All of the detail parts used on the interior and motor are all from Pro Tech. Thanks for looking and I hope you guys like the build. Paul
  8. Here is a 58 FC Holden,GMH was 1 of aussies first major car manufacturing company's Any ways Would you class this as a Gasser!It does have nose bleed,If i add some stacks out the hood and and a moon tank maybe??I might get into trouble as this got moved to the pick up section when i first posted it... I think this is where it should be though.Your thoughts? .
  9. My favorite Hot Wheels car as a kid was the '36 Ford NEET STREETER. The look of that chopped 3W coupe all jacked up gasser-style was pure attitude. I wanted a "quick" project to finish for an upcoming contest, so I grabbed an AMT '36 Ford, a Malco '33 Willys, and started putting things together: That 427 Cammer is going to be a tight fit. Notching the X-member got me an extra 3/32" of setback, which may allow the blower drive to clear the radiator. Originally, I was trying to find a Miss Deal to use as a chassis/suspension donor. If I come up on one, that still could happen.
  10. Hey guys, I've been looking at different builds on here for nearly a year now so I suppose it's about time I posted something! I bought a Revell Willys kit a while ago and started it a few weeks ago but I haven't really got any build photos. This is where I'm at so far... As you can see this build is far from finished but the hard work is done. Not sure weather to add decals yet, I might add a couple. Also, as I carry on with this and future builds, I'll get some build photos and post them on the forum. The header looks so low with the body on because I accidently knocked it, but I didn't notice until posting the photos on here! (Doh!) So far, I've been building this Gasser as the kit says (Apart from the colours) But I might add some more stuff like a fire extinguisher for the interior. Here are a few others I'm working on: Any tips/comments will be appreciated and thanks for looking! Pudgey
  11. Hi all, here is my 65 Ford Falcon Gasser I just finished, wired an plumbed out, had a rough time. Someone started it an trashed the body, but, I think I pulled it out ok, ran fuel lines from Moon tank thru grill, plug an dist wires, clean sleak inside, thanks for looking. I'm doing the k.c. spurlock fruit of the loom funny car now, did the deep red car, looks like ox blood red. Post a few pics later,
  12. Just finished building this '57 Chevy "barn find" vintage gasser. You can get all the details and more photos on my site at the link. http://www.svensworldofwheels.com/57_chevy_barn_find_gasser_page.html
  13. greetings everyone, ...some time since I have built a piece and posted one here. finished this today from the new amt issue 40 ford coupe kit. about 3 -4 weeks working slowly, and presto...finally its at least presentable. paint is Tamiya orange spray can, followed by Tamiya spray pearl clear. decals are a mix of this and that,...pretty much a box build,..but removed the stock exhaust and re plated the floor. scratch built traction masters, woody cal custom steering wheel, drivers helmet...I think that's about it. anyhow, maybe I will start another kit this week too. not a great build, but all this old bird can muster up these days. thanks for looking. the ace.........
  14. Here is the 63 gasser vette I been.working on, removed the gas tank and exhaust sys, also.cut out the front molded in A frame, and bars, going to use a Springer type, interrior is started and 427 wired and ready to drop in, will post a few more later. Thanks guys,
  15. Does anyone make correct wrinkle wall slicks sitting at rest, not with the wrinkles up the sidewall under torque? What I'm looking for is wrinkle wall slicks with the pronounced "pooch" at the bottom portion, wrinkle below the bottom of the rim. If you look at wrinkle wall slicks at rest you will notice that they only wrinkle up the sidewall when hooked up under power. At rest they have a pooch resembling a slick that could use some more air.
  16. Here is the OHIO George 33 Gassed I just finished, it is close too the box car with some wiring and a few other things. I did change the color a bit, I feel it came out decent, working on the Green Elephant f/c now,
  17. I want to be able to turn any model into a gasser. Where do I start? Also, how do I set up the axles, suspension etc? Do I take the suspension from existing gasser kits?
  18. I want to build a 2 door post 1955 Chevy old school late 1960's gasser and need some advice. I bought the AMT 2 door post kit and for the body. It looks pretty good. I was slightly disappointed by the front large under bumper pan. I plan to leave the front bumper off and the lip on the pan is, in my option, way to thick and deep. I figure I can message it. The frame/pan will not work however because it has a muffler and exhaust molded in. I bought a Monogram 1955 hard top street machine hoping that frame would work, but it too had mufflers and exhaust molded in. That is that back ground. Here is the questions Is there a tri 5 Chevy kit that does not have mufflers and exhaust molded it? What kit has the best straight axle and springs Any ideas on the best way the make a working tilt nose? What kit has the best big block Chevy engine? Would like to build with old School pie crust slicks and Crager SS or Americans. Any source for those?. Thanks in advance for all and any input.
  19. This is the current release of the AMT 1937 Chevrolet Coupe which is being distributed through Stevens International. I found my example at my LHS, and was drawn in by the nostalgic box art. I'll give some in-box information on the kit. Kit The kit consists of 10 sprues (1 clear, 2 Chrome, and 7 white plastic) which are packed among 7 bags. Another bag contains 2 sets of tires, a metal axle, and transparent red piece. The glass is packed separately in a bubble wrap pouch. The clear sprue contains headlights, and a clear custom hood. The parts are packed, and one will need a lot of luck getting them back in once taken out. This is a 3 in 1 kit, and contains loads of extra parts including Cragar wheels, extra grill, bumpers, and other parts for the parts box. Also, there are two complete engines with this kit; a stovebolt 6 cylinder, and a 427 V8. Body Inspection of the body showed that little cleanup is needed compared to other AMT kits. The fenders are separate, and dry fitting showed promising fit. On the body, there are noticeable mold lines that run the C pillar from the drip molding to the fender. Also, there is a hole on the passenger side just in front of the rear fender that will need filled if the custom gas filler cap is not used. So far, the kit looks good. I will add an update after I build the kit.
