Scale I Build

Found 6 results

  1. This is a 1969 Hurst Olds I finished awhile back. It started as an open eBay purchase that was fortunately complete. The only issue was that the decal sheet had been wetted then dried. It was built basically box stock with some minor mods. I did my trademark widened rear wheels and tires. The gold detail painting on the wheels was a challenge. I had to get the gold only on the spokes and not on the lugnuts, center caps or hole trim. They actually came out perfect. I was quite pleased. I removed the locator pegs from the tail light lenses and BMF'd the backs to make them more realistic. I added a Detail Master triple gauge set under dash to compliment the "His and Hers" Hurst shifter. I got the triple carbs and manifold from a 69 Olds 442 kit. The air cleaner element was painted with transparent aqua. The fit and finish of this kit was amazing for an AMT offering. It has been years since I had a body drop right onto a chassis perfectly without having to trim or tweak something. The bumpers actually fit perfectly as well. The only trouble I had was that the windows are barely bigger than the frame leaving very little overlap for gluing. The chassis is quite detailed including separate pieces for control arms, springs and shocks. The decals did require soaking about 5 times longer than usual to release from the backing paper but they held together well. I really wish I had a wired distributor to top off the engine. I highly recommend this kit as I had very little frustration building it. In fact this is the first model I have ever built where the steering actually WORKS!
  2. This was a really cool project. It had been on my mind for a couple years. I saw the car in an episode of Muscle Car Of The Week. It’s an online YouTube show bringing mostly cars from the Brothers collection. LOTS of inspiration! Special guest appearance from Linda Vaughn! The shifter and platform are removable. I figured four ease of transportation to and from shows and club nights, this would be a good idea. The platform doesn’t mount to the bumper the same way it does on the real car. So what do you guys think? I’d love to hear any questions or comments. Thanks for following along, I really enjoyed this build!
  3. The major mods to the 69 Hurst Olds convertible body are complete! I’m liking the way it looks so far! I’m using the ‘72 Indianapolis Olds convertible as a donor kit. I worked from the front of the car to the back. Reason being, the windshield dictates were the up-top will live. The underside of the cowl has mounting pins for the windshield. Next I narrowed the rear seat. For now the interior is mocked up with the ‘72 side panels. Windsield temporarily mounted. With the up-top in place, I could get a feel for where the tulip panel would live. The tulip panel all trimmed up. Here are a bunch of mock-up pictures. Hope you all like it! All questions and comments always welcome!

    '66 Olds 442

    I've been away from modelling for a while. This is the first kit I've worked on in 15 years... This kit went together really well. I had no problems with any of the fitment. This was a great kit to get back into the hobby with. The color is Duplicolor GM Blue (lacquer). The top is Rustoleum white (enamel).First I sprayed the car with blue then tried to spray the white. Big nono. As you may guessed, the white paint cracked. It took me a minute to figure out what happened. Then I fixed my situation. I also invested in a lighted magnifier. Best purchase ever! Thanks for looking
