Scale I Build

  1. Twenty year old Revell kit, and not a bad one too. Wanted a contemporary look without changing the 'structure' too much, so de-chromed throughout, faired-in and cut down bumpers front & rear, steering wheel from a Tamiya R34, the rest is just paint. Tamiya Gunmetal, polished & buffed, not clear coated, a dark red interior which I carried through to the outside accents and finall a little carbon-fibre decalling on the valence. Ta Daaaa !! Wheels & tyres are 18" SA-70s from Aoshima and just don't look right. I'll replace them with 16" when I can, also need to source some brake discs, there's a set in the R34 spares but I'll need to perform a fair bit of surgery to get them to fit the Revell axles. Hope you like it, AFN Ian.
  2. Hello, Currently suffering from severe PHD (Project Hopping Desease).... The Revell snap C7 Corvette body was washed and dried. Shot the first coat of primer. Block sanded and started working the mold lines.The body looks good and straight so far.... No hesitation on color combo: Laguna blue with Kalahari interior..... Stay tuned... Best Regards,
  3. This is a 1:25 Revell Monogram kit of a '67 Corvette 427 Roadster. This is one of many kits generously given to me by a friend from work. It turned out almost exactly as I imagined it. The only differences were the omission of the white hood stripe and the redline tires. The decals were really old and had been stored in a garage with poor air conditions. Some of the decals disintegrated in water. I found a product online, a brush-on film for preserving old decals I can use on future models. Most of the parts under the hood and in the interior have a color scheme based on Corvette part pictures I found online. The Workbench thread is located here:
  4. Hi guys! Since im on winter vacation at this week, i was able to finish another build.. Had some serious issues with chassis, interior body combo.. and im bit unhappy how tail lights came out.. Other than those i liked this kit.. also AMT polyglass tires did not fit so well on kit wheels, but in the dark corner of display shelf its all good.. After i did upload photos i realized that door locks are still in body color, little Molotow will solve that.. Color is Tamiya TS-95 pure metallic red.. Now less talk, and more photos
  5. Just saw the video review of the Revell Olds Cutlass/FE3-X today. Here it is.
  6. First finished build of 2018, Revell 1997 Corvette Coupe. Excellently detailed kit, so much better than the AMT versions. This the second build of a series of Corvette Coupes I'm building Bright Red with tan/black interior and with the same custom wheels (Pictured C2) Paint is Duplicolor Bright Red with several polished clear coats. Only custom part is the aluminum exhaust tips. C2 in the series
  7. Nice kit and love that box cover.. Whats in box.. Check link to finnish modeling site https://forum.fcma.fi/viewtopic.php?f=23&t=12986
  8. Hi guys and merry christmas for you all!! Here is my last one for year 2017, its Revell 29` roadster.. I did plug wires and exhaust end on rear, then i robbed those flames and pinstripes from 32 sedan kit.. Paint is Tamiya TS-89 pearl blue, paint job came out nice and shiny, only panel lines did run off paint, well better luck next time... Here are photos, enjoy
  9. Threw this together for the club build project. I've known about it for a while, but with how the last 4-5 months have been, so I kinda threw this together in the last couple days between work, visiting Mom after work, and sleep, which is why I don't have many build pics of it. Not my best work, and I have a few things I'll do different if I build another one of the '32 Kits. The headlights and shocks/brackets are in the purple pothole (I used a prescription bottle), but those will be in flat black as well and I may paint the shock portion with Future once the black primer is dry.
  10. The kit: * * * First thing to do, trace the mold lines with a marker and sand & polish them out: ]* * * Next, for my own reference, highlight the lift-off nose section, because I'm planning to build this one all opened-up and plumbed/wired to the best of my ability. * * * Ughhh, ugly cut: * * * All separated now, the red 'scars' are where the knife & saw blades slipped and gouged the surface. After the photos, I filled them with Squadron fine (grey) filler and sanded them back with various grades of wet'n dry. * * * This is my 'serious' project to take me through the holidays and well in to the New Year. Stay tuned it could be fun, or it could be a complete dogs dinner, we'll find-out together. AFN Ian.
  11. Hi Guys, I purchased the 1:8 Revell '32 Ford Hot Rod kit years ago and now that i'm retired I would like to built it. HOWEVER , i'm missing the assembly instructions. Would anyone have a copy? Thanks Jerry
  12. Nice kit, modern molds of course. Great pad printed tires, but no brand name. Sweet stock wheels. Nice factory stock version of the car. Check out my Starsky & Hutch kit review for the same kit in the show's 'hopped up' style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UqWtMj7SD0
  13. HI! Got this puppy finished.. Still realized while taking photos that it had side mirrors missing.. I have glued on them now, but does not shown in these pics... Out of box models, but exhaust ending, wheels and tires i did pick up from part box.. I had to use 6-lug wheels since they were only steelies i had free for this build.... But you sure want to see photos?
  14. Hi all, Been a while since I posted one of my builds on here. This is the Revell Foose 65 Impala that I finished up a couple of months ago. I used a lot of engine and interior detail parts from Pro Tech Such as all wiring, plumbing, fittings, carb, air cleaner, oil breathers, oil filter, throttle linkage, distributor setup and seatbelt harness. Also a complete Resin and Aluminum Big Block 572 engine, full exhaust and custom racing seats from Sweet Scale detail. The wheels are parts box wheels that I took off of an old Di-cast a few years ago. There is a PE set form The Model Car Garage used also for the emblems and dash detail. Hope you all enjoy the pics.
  15. Hey! Got new project started with testing my new spray paint booth.. Results with TS-92 metallic orange could be better, since i got bit dust on my paint job, but i can live with it,becouse im building this just as some nice shelf model.. Not in shows to display... Here we go..
  16. Hello friends Being the first jet fighter jet in the world to enter service, my duty had to be to have it in my collection. Although it was late his introduction in service could have recovered the air supremacy for the Luftwaffe in the Second World War. The model is from the Revell brand at 1/48 scale. https://youtu.be/CJK4ZyCcjqE Greetings and I hope you like mates
  17. Have the the HL stores gotten in the Revell/Monogram 70 Charger yet?
  18. Quick build in between the big detail builds. 2015 Mustang GT. I did some mods, hand grafted and molded a unique rear spoiler, hood scoop and removed the front stock grills and replaced with PE mesh. Did the same with the two hood "vents", opened and used mesh. Mirrors are from a 2012 Mustang parts kits I have. Aluminum tubing exhaust tips too.Wheels are Aoshima I accented with some Magnisium buffing paint. I don't like the kit "painted" taillights, so I BMF over them and used a red Sharpie, I think it looks far more realistic. If you note, the biggest thing I did was fabricated a set of actual realistic headlights! Those that might know, this snaptite kit comes with silver painted plastic as headlights. Paint is Duplicolor Stellar Blue with lots of polished and buffed Duplicolor clear coats.
  19. Just finished a long-time build of the Revell 70 Torino GT. I have to say, one of the best detailed kits I've built.Kept it mostly stock with exception of a custom Emerald Green pearlized and highly polished paint job. Lots of detail, opened the front grill center section, and spent some time on engine compartment detailing, which I actually do not enjoy doing unless I'm in a specific mood.Lowered front and rear suspension to "stance" the car better than stock and added some Aoshima custom 6-spoke wheels
  20. I did this as a slump buster. Was disappointed when I opened the box and found no decals, just stickers. Surprisingly they went down pretty well and conformed to curves better than I expected. I am looking forward to the full detail kits of the Ford and Chevy, I have not picked up either yet. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  21. Checking out everything that's in the box with the new 70 Charger. Wonderful kit, crisp molds and sweet redline tires. Will make a great complement to their excellent 68 and 69 kits. Hemi is the only engine option on this one, but other mills ca be purchased all over the interwebs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TelIknzQz6A
  22. I've been working on Revell's awesome new kit for about a month now (I only get a day or two a week to build). All parts are spray painted, it's now time for some detail brush painting, decals, and assembly. I'm hoping to have it done by Thanksgiving. I thought posting here might hold me to that! This is my first build in 3 years, so I'm keeping it close to box stock and fun. I opted to build a Charger 500 by omitting the door scoops and not using any R/T decals. Paint it Testors Hemi Orange and Lacquer Clear. Kit will be box stock except for wheels and tires (plan is to use AMT '70 Chevelle deeper Magnum 500s and L60 tires all around) and maybe a pre-wired distributor. This is a fantastic kit with great proportions, minimal mold lines and beautiful parts fit. I am loving this build, and highly recommend this kit. Thanks for looking, it's good to be back building.
  23. My first build in almost 30 years. This is an old issue Revell 54 Chevy gasser kit that was sitting on my shelf. It was missing quite a few parts like the front door panels, front and rear bumpers, front and rear suspensions, engine, and tranny among other things. What was there was a broken back window, cracked front valence panel and the body was so thin you could almost see through it. I thought about finding a re-issue version but opted for fabrication and robbing my parts boxes. I began with weathering the body to hide some of glue stains and went from there. I used a combination of methods (salt chipping and windex and dusting to achieve the effects you see. The windshield, side windows and back window are scratch built using clear projection sheets from the old style school overhead projectors. This was my first time using BMF and am still learning its challenges and realized this was probably not the best one to start with as most of the body lines were pretty minimal and faint.
  24. 1991 was the last model year that the United States Border Patrol painted their vehicles white over light green (I don't know the exact paint code). Since the BP bought Caprices as their basic patrol sedan that year, they were the last sedans to utilize this paint scheme before the agency switched to all-white cars with a green stripe the following year. The kit is from Revell, Jetsonic light bar is from the AMT Ford Taurus police car kit, and decals are from Billbozo. Paint is Tamiya Pure White over Tamiya Pearl Green and the side molding was made from Evergreen stock. In retrospect, I should have added a cage for prisoner transport but we will just say this is a supervisor's car. This is my second complete kit and again, I learned a lot from it. I mostly got to work on my BMF techniques. The only real mess up I had was that I accidentally spilled glue on the front windshield, something I was not able to fix. The real deal (courtesy of copcar.com):
  25. Hello partners In this hobby always improves with time, so, here I present two models of submarine type VII. The first one I built could be seen the interior, the compartments and different details that represented the development inside the submarine. The second one focuses on doing a more elaborate exterior work, thanks to the Griffon Model photogravure that complements this model of Revell, the termination in my opinion has been very good. A greeting and I hope you like it
