Scale I Build

  1. HI! This lowrider model is based on a 1/25 promo which had no information of model company that has made it. Promo was packed in white cardboard box with color prints of drawn pics of red Regal and large Buick- logos. Maybe it´s made by Brooklin or MPC or AMT... I don´t know. Same company has obviously made the Buick Reatta promo bcause it it so similar to this Regal. But on to model: I Disassembled the promo and painted it with tamiya paints. Body has: Surfacer white + Light pearl red + lame flake ( PS) + clear + metallic orange ( thin mist layers ) + clear Some modifications to rear subrame
  2. I finally got it done! I'm blown away by the detail the Lowrider guys put into their cars. Some of them are more like jewellery, than cars. I hope to get better at building lowriders and get my paint more precise. I love the chrome and the wild colours and I want to build more of these. I only added a few bits n bobs; Subwoofers, Pegasus Daytons, resin rotors and calipers. But most of the time was spent masking, painting and waiting for it all to dry between the many coats of clear (15, I think). Then a lot of wet sanding and polishing. Paint was from rattle cans, which prompted me to order
  3. Just finished my first lowrider. I think it came out pretty good. By accident, I modified it to do 3 wheel motion and have the back dropped. Will be doing this kit again.
  4. Hey all! This is a Chevelle that I wrapped up late last week. This was built as an auction piece to raise money for the family of a fallen model car club brother. If your interested, the auction will be hosted on my Instagram page: "detailjunkees" Exterior: custom patterned roof which was done by club brother Jesus Cardenas. patina on the lower half was done with the salt method and the Tamiya weathering kit. coon tail antenna topper. Thermador swamp cooler. Kit bashed Cragars w/ Pegasus lowrider tires. Interior: custom printed fabric sarape seat covers and headliner. scratchbuilt air ri
  5. Ladies and Gents, This will be the official Lowrider Tour that will cover lowriders. The CBP will go from 10/1/16 to 10/1/17. It will be long enough for all those who wish to participate, and long enough for those who love to take their time on models! rules: 1) must be a lowrider, for obvious reasons. This means, it must have lowrider wheels (spokes).2) you can build it out of the box or you can go all out custom.3) the build must be a brand new build or barely started, please post pictures4) the build will start on 10/1/16 and last through 10/1/175) have fun!we can have public votin
  6. Well picked this project up at a hobby show in Taunton Ma basically because it came with a lowrider bicycle that I thought was pretty cool! Well it's going along pretty well so far but not exactly sure what Ima do with the paint and interior! Here are a few pics: frame and underpan: Few engine shots:
  7. Built this couple years ago but never got around to sharing on this forum. Basically it was a quick build to get the creative juices flowing again and get me out of a rut/slump and motivated to build again. Total build time was around 48hrs. Being that it was built quickly, it has no chassis detail or engine so pretty much a curbside. As some of you might recognize its done in a style(my trademark colours you could say) that I have done many times before on other builds. Paint Body: Tamiya TS-14 gloss black Interior: Tamiya TS-49 bright red which was over-coated with Alclad ALC 314 klear kot
  8. Another build done in the exact same style as the 72 Chevelle I posted recently. This was built back in 2012 for a community build(2012 Lowrider tour) on this forum, but it seems I never posted it in the Under Glass section.
  9. Here’s my latest, the AMT ’60 Ford Starliner. I lowered the suspension, filled the antenna hole in the front wing. MCG PE details were used, but I didn’t use the PE grille, as you need to buy separate headlight buckets, from Modelhaus or somewhere else… Thanks MCG. That cost me $20 and it was all but useless. Why not include resin buckets in with the PE set? I mean, how much more would it cost? Anyway, I replaced the dash switches and the dials. I flocked the carpets and wired the engine. Wheels are from Pegasus and I made the exhaust system from lead solder, with polished aluminium Bel
  10. Not much to show yet, but I just started today on my '60 Chevrolet pickup. My first order of business to narrow up my AMT Parts Pack '60 Mercury grille to fit the width of the pickup's opening, and to clearance the opening so the grille will nestle back into it. I removed six grille bars per side, and you can see the grille opening modified on one side. When it goes back together, the inner headlights should hide the seams.
  11. So heres a project i've been working on for some time. got the kit sometime back and wanted to do something different, so i racked my brain and got to work. Working on the skirts with suff corners and made some F&B bumper guards and new style mouldings.
  12. saw this one on the net, and knew I had to use it for inspiration. wont be an exactl replica, I just liked the different twist on your normal Camaro. started by making lowered spindles and narrowing the rear a bit to mount the Pegasus wheels I got. initial stance, I think this could work well, the rear will probably come up a tad. Just going for a quicker clean build on this one. Taking a break after finishing the Mustang. Thanks for looking
  13. Every once in a while I get the urge to do a wild paint job on something. This time the candidate was a 62' Impala that had some paint issues with it's last paint job. I've been wanting to build a lowrider for a while so I decided to try out a roof pattern on it. After hours of taping and spraying I ended up with this. The plan is to make it sit on airbag suspension with Pegasus wheels. Oh and I've decided to name it "Playing With Kandy" since that's exactly what I was doing with the paint job. Thanks for looking! All comments/criticisms welcome. Billy
  14. My first build of 2014..............I always build hot rods so i thought i would throw this in the mix...lol A mild custom with a kit bash.......soon to paint the roof.........(hopfully tonight) Still got to figure out the rear bumper.....Finish the motor and interior.....................:-)
  15. This is my a 1977 Revell Snap Tite, hope yall like it! thanks for viewing!
  16. Finally, I finished a build this year! The car got its name from my 8 year old digital camera's fear to take a decent pic of this red ride. Or maybe its just me being a hack photographer? Hey, I'm a baker not a young George Barris...The colors looked decent on my flat screen T.V., but look way flat and lifeless on the laptop. Either way time to upgrade and get on with the pics. A full shave and molded everything http:// Custom made grill insert. Headlights? Are those important?? http:// Mishmash of two rollpans. Indecision has left me taillight-less as well. http:// In the real world
  17. In my humble opinion, the line drawn between customs and lowriders in the 70's was a blurry one. Maybe a hazy one is more apt for the decade, but I've been interested in that pre-Dayton era for a few years now. The first gen Riviera is probably Detroit's best factory custom effort (with the 58 Impala coming a close second) and needs little to cruise the streets in style. A gray plastic AMT 65 Rivera is the (un)lucky subject of this build, so less writing and on with some pics okay? Like most AMT kits of the era, this one has a basic floor pan with all the detail molded in along with tho
  18. First off, happy New Year to you and yours! Lets hope 2013 brings us all good luck and happiness. Named after the famous Boston gentleman's club the Golden Banana is a 61 Impala late model custom based on Lindberg's kit. Ill let the pics tell the story.

  19. Giving this some fresh paint, the purple is pretty average and there were a few sink marks i didn't fix. So i will change colours and fix the imperfections in the body. while its in pieces i will show a pic of the interior, it has 67 impala seats because my 67 got the bench seats. basicly im just giving the body a respray so i wont be doing much to the chassis or interior.
  20. Here is my second Lowrider, a 1970 Buick Wildcat (1/25) by Model King THANKS AGAIN FOR VIEWING!
