Scale I Build

Found 66 results

  1. Hey guys, I'm planning out a gasser and I was wanting some advice. So far I have a 41 Plymouth body on a 53 Ford frame and a Hemi from the Willy Borsch Winged Express kit. Slicks and deep dish steelies in the back (53 Chevy kit) and thinner Firestones with steelies in the front. I can scratchbuild some stuff. The idea is a dirty, rougher home-grown effort with attitude.

    '71 Hemi Cuda

    My girlfriend and I just finished our latest project together, this time we decided to do a Hemi Cuda in plum crazy. We're pretty pleased with this one other than the fit and finish of the kit itself in places but it happens. A big thank you to the site for providing techniques on how to strip the chrome off the bumpers. Much happier with them in body colour. Now on to the next one!
  3. Building this one for the Ohio challenge at the Buckeye classic this coming March. I ran through a ton of ideas and options and decided on this for my "inspiration" quick mock-up and we are in business
  4. .....this won't be the hot tip for today for the Chrysler / Mopar drag builders I'm sure, but thought I would share some info for this build that I just was playing around with. if you are not impressed with the headers that AMT provides in the Roadrunner and GTX kits, the nice race style headers from the Revell 67 GTX kits and 67 coronet Drag on lady coronet seem to fit nicely, without any pain. I'm starting a 68 'runner to build as a late 60s-early 70s super stock or mod. prod. car, so gathering up the goodies is first as we know. anyhow, I had a couple extra sets of these around, and they seem to do the job nicely. also, that stock oil pan in the 'runner Hemi is easily made into a deep race pan with some plastic added , then worked out a bit. so, don't turf it for another until you spend an hour or 2 modifying that stock one...it too will do nicely. just thought I'd pass this info along for some that it may end up being useful ................regards,...the Ace......
  5. got a tweedy pie re-issue and just don't know how to leave well'nuff alone. this is a preliminary mock up to get a majority of the fabrication started, i plan on detailing everything along with final fit and finish before primer. to start, swapped out the chevy 283 and ford three speed (which looks like a one ton, cool!) for a good'ol chrysler 426 with stock B -body manifolds and a833 4 speed from a 68 roadrunner. cut out and made a new trans mount, and mocked up a kind of K frame for the hemi (note how you can still reach+change the oil filter and where the drainplug on the pan woukd be). modified the transmisstion tailshaft to afford space for a drive shaft and what should be a B-body dana 60 on custom coils and what i plan to be a paralell 4-link ( step up for hemi cars from an 8.75 was supposed to be dana 60, but in 1:25 it looks too small) then chopped the windshield, and modified the tweedy pie side steer to clear the scatter-shield, put chrysler brake master in frame and started on the single side exit exaust. need to make a steering centerlink, motor mounts, and decide what to do in the rear. then finish the floor pan, fire wall and....uh....everything else. brutally honest critisism welcomed. i know it looms ruff and the stringers bother mee too. good work is tidy work, but unfortunately im an 'artist'. i really just wanted feedback, and see the mock up of the stance. never been called anything on the internet i cant laugh at, thanks for looking.
  6. Ok all, my '69 GTX is all done. This was the opening door and trunk project, but I backed out on that, I just wanted to have it done. I am experimenting with learning to take proper pictures of my models, some of these turned out really good I think. I can tell if I take better pictures I better clean up my modeling, all the warts really show. In any case, it is on the shelf now, and on to new projects. Enjoy! Sean
  7. Hello. Does anybody have the instructions for this kit? I`m after the picture of the instructions for the hemi engine in this kit,the rest is not important. Thanks Tommy
  8. Revell 1/24 '71 HEMIĀ® 'Cuda Hardtop I saw this model at my local drug store and it was on sale, so I got it. This is a picture of the painted body sitting on the frame: I put some 19" rims with low profile tires on it, I think they look much better than the stock ones that come with the kit I need to do a little detail work with the black strip, but i really like it on the lime green. and of course The Hemi: I will try to post more as it get it done.
  9. Some pics of my first build in progress, i'd like some feedback! Thanks guys!
  10. Some pics of my first build in progress, i'd like some feedback! Thanks guys!
  11. My main entry for this years Cannonball Run CBP. Plans are to replicate the '68 Dart I have on Forza 4. I'll get a picture of it up at a little later on. Nothing wild or over the top just something a normal car guy with moderate building experience could pull off. Well maybe little above that. Starting point First order of business is to cut the doors and trunk lid open. The cuts ended up being very clean so I might have the body work and some base color on it over the weekend. Thanks for looking!
  12. I just wanted a share a couple of pictures with you guys. I've seen lots of cool stuff in this section and I think this is worth sharing. It is a '31 Ford Model A from Finland, with an original steel body that has been chopped 4,5" and channeled 4". The frame is also modified to make it lower. The engine is an Early Hemi with six chromed Stromberg carbs. Those pipes are Loud! Here's a video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rH0K2my3H4I There are more cars I can post, too if anyone is interested in seeing more of these from Finland.
  13. Got this one painted as the sun is out and there is some warm weather. Done the foil,put on decal and the some coat of clear. Maby not the most exciting color,it`s tamiya champagne. Since the pro street style is a bit crazy,i thought tone it down with the color,so white top,decal and interior. Here are some pics. The chassis is half AMT and half Revell. Not done painting. Interior. Some flocking and bmf added. No cage and i still wanted back seat. Tires and wheels. The wheels are machined aluminium from "customs by terry" on Ebay. The body so far. Needs some side marker painted,door handles,wipers,bumpers and other small things. Not made an decission on engine but the 426 with supercharger is one option. Another is the Gibson engines,but they cost a lot so not sure. Some pro mod converted to street gas would be cool,got to think about it a little more. I guess it`s not everyone cup of tea but comments are welcome by anyone. Thanks for looking.
  14. Here is the first of hopefully three entries into this years Cannonball Run over in the Community Builds. It's a '67 Plymouth GTX sporting a 426 Hemi power plant. Painted Rust-O-leum Charcoal Grey Metallic, cleared with their X2 coverage Gloss Clear. There's also a little story behind this build. Some of you may remember that I built a '67 GTX for last years run too. Well I ended up breaking the windshield posts trying to lower the roof. I found this kit on eBay later that day so I bought just in case I could not fix mine. I was able to fix it and so parts from this one have been sitting on my desk since. While cleaning my desk from an earlier build in preparation to work on my original entries I found the body and thought to myself, it didn't get to be in last years run so why not build it up for this year's run? So here it is all built up, it's not perfect I did have to respray the front passenger fender and trunk lid so they are a little darker than the rest of the body. But I think it gives it a nice flawed charm, it's not meant to be a perfect big budget show car just something a relatively regular person could have built to run across country. I did make a few modifications and they are as follows. Smoothed the body removing the trim from the side, fenders and roof as well as all emblems. Recessed the gas cap to make it flush with the body. Modified the stock hood scoop to more match that of the '68 Dart's. Blacked out the chrome bumpers. I've seen a few '69 Super Bee's that had the bumpers blacked out and thought it looked cool. Plus all the chrome from this kit being perfect went on last years GTX. The chrome from last year's GTX ended up on this one lol. Cut out the old turbo style muffers and made some Cherry bombs (my muffler of choice). Also borrowed a que from the boys at GM and made some C6 Corvette style exhaust tips. And last but certainly not least made some purple fuzzy dice at Gene aka Speedfreak's suggestion. Well enough blabbering here it is "over" glass rather than under. Thanks for looking, more pics up in a few.
  15. Revell 69 Charger pro modeler kit,build one or two ways,very nice kit if i might say so. As for me i had in mind stock,but this always seem to fail as it goes on. Ok,some facts,primer and paint are Tamiya TS. Distributor is MAD,the supercharger is BNL,i used Alclad on this,the carburators,the air intake is body color (hard to see). Engine is the 426 from the kit (It also comes with an 440 magnum). 4speed manual,stock interior with some foil and attempt at woodgrain paint.flocked the floor and the shelf behind the rear seats. The body is all stock. The floor/chassis is AMT and Revell put together,70/30. Oh yeah,i forgot the mirrior inside the car,also i dont have any braided wire for fuel so i could attempt detail a little more. I belive the washer container should be white,but i took the chance and painted blue on the inside,and its clear. I consider try getting some sort of jig for fuel/brake lines later on,its extremely difficult holding with one hand and fix with the other lol. Wheels are "Customs by Terry" on Ebay. The supercharger belt is from Mike DeLuco "Shucky",yeah i think thats about it. This is my first pro street car so i hope you like it. Also i would like to thank Jeremy Newman "outkast1027" for the rear tires. Here are some pictures.
  16.

  18. I love my Chevelles, my Challenger, and my Charger.......but I haven't been able to stop messing with this thing since I finished it. It came out better than expected!
  19. So i started one more kit (dont ask why lol) and some ideas popped in as i went along. I`m pretty sure it`s been done before,but it is a first time for me trying to scratch build things as frames and modify the body. The donor is the Dodge Viper GTS from AMT. Only thing left of the original frame is the mid section. I also modified the firewall to get engine enough backwards so it went clear of steering components. This again gives a lot of room in front of the engine and in real life,nice weight distribution. Well,here are some progress. Comments are welcome.
  20. Greetings from Motown!,,just finished this "Woody". Its kindof what you might call a "GT" package if it were ever to be offered back in the day,,lol. Lots of scratch built stuff,,no after market parts on this,,just leftovers from the junk bxs. Some of the pcs were missing when I got the kit{ swap meet kit} so had to use the thunderbird tire cover in back,,different rear bumper,turn signals on front fenders,scratch built,,And the mtr is some hemi out of a prostock kit,,have no idea which one. Tinted the windshield + wing windows blue Scratch built visors,,roll bar,,seatbelts. I really like the AMT kit supplied " woodgrain" inner panel decals for the sides,,nice feature. They went on with no problems. Its a bit different than the stock version,,but what a fun version it would be to drive!
  21. I think it came out well
  22. i have been working on this model for a long time . i have gone through two bodies. countless rear fenders . a couple hoods, and three frames . it's sat in a parts box for a few years . While waiting for parts to show up on another build I decided to bring some of my stalled projects out to see if i can breath new life into them . This is one of them this model is in its rough stages . the plan is to have a 6.1 hemi, viper front and rear suspension air bags and as low as i can go . now for some pics
  23. I'll spare the details as it can be found in my build thread "One fun wrangler" so here's the finished product. Let me know what you all think.
  24. Thought i`d just post it as finish before i was tempted to throw it in the dumpster. Did so many errors and faults i could write several pages on it,but i`ll cut it short. I forgot to paint mirrors,messed up decals for the interiour,forgot to paint the underside of the hood,wrong color on the radiator beam,forgot to paint the top of the front housing the lights,grill etc. I painted the shaker in the same color as the surrounding of the grill,but the paint was really weird,like it got sand in it. So i stripped it,then painted it satin black,with flat black gasket,but this paint was weird too,it was only flat on spots and i stired the can really good before paint,so it`s in strip right now. And to top it all,i was painting an Chrysler 300C the other day,the Cuda was getting clear on the same day. It was in the same room,but far away from where i painted the Chrysler. Even so,it`s full of paint dust from i was painting the Chrysler,the list go on and on and on The paint is Tamiya. Decals i found on parts on Ebay. Tires are from Revell 69 Charger. Wheels are from Scenes Unlimited. Plug wires are Hobby Design. I do not recomend these,way to stiff. Radiator hose from Scale Production. Heater hose,i dont remember. Plates and quarter decals are from 71 Cuda Street Machine,MPC? Some photos. Thanks for looking.
