  1. 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
  2. 1970 Torino GT

    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
  3. Dale Jr Nationwide car

    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.
  4. Recycled Glue Bomb kit from the 70's

    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.
  5. Revell 66 Impala

    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..
  6. So i have no clue wether this should be under the workbench or glass section as its completed but ill post some building pic's also. The build of my Diablo VT Fully painted with 3 layers of the TS-89 spraycan Final assembly: Completed (although still needs polishing and decals): Quite happy with the outcome of it, must say Revell is alot less detailed than im used to from Tamiya (steering dont work for example), but its fun as a "quick build" depending on how far you go with paint etc...
  7. Jnr's Rookie Season M/C

    Finished on Friday: Revell kit with JWTBM decals (a gift from a mate back in UK), Tamiya 'Italian Red' straight from the rattle-can for the body and Xtracolour & Tamiya enamels everywhere else. Ian.
  8. Mustang GT - Stellar Blue

    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.
  9. Anyone parting out a new Revell '57 Ford sedan or wagon kit? I need the steering box, part # 66: Thanks as always for your help.
  10. 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.
  11. German Navy type VII

    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
  12. Hi all, fresh from my completion of the Subaru, I pulled out next in the line of models to get built. This one is going to be intended as a gift to someone who is a big fan of VW Campers, and I'm going to try shooting it with some slightly interesting paint (first time using an airbrush too). I'm aware for a second go it's very ambitious, but we all need to be challenged, right? I've opted for Zero paints ZP-4032 which is a green-purple flip. I think I'll keep the rest of the colour scheme in line with the box art/as revell intended mostly. I tried painting the whitewalls on the tyres as per the instructions, but that seems to be an express ticket to insanity. I might look into decals, but at the moment I'm quite happy how they look unpainted. Thanks for looking
  13. Got one of these kits at Ollie's and wanted something that was pretty straight forward with no modifications. I had this orange paint sitting around and decided to use it. Once I got the white stripes on I looked at it and thought boy that looks like a Cleveland Browns truck. The only thing missing from the paint job is the real browns helmet has a thin brown strip on the outside of each of the white strip. I thought it still looked very Brownish and still put a custom plate on it. Did not notice how the hood was sitting till after I looked at the photo. I screwed the front decal up a bit.
  14. Most recent build completed. Revell Crusader, 1/12 scale 'Amercan Chopper' style bike. Fun build, a few scratch parts like the HT leads and Brake lines, Paint is Humbrol 51, Sunset Red though over white primer it's more hot pink but I like, it, very hot rod and bright and noticeable.

  15. LaFerrari

    Not the Tamiya 'uber kit', this is the RoG version of the magnificent LaFerrari. Back-story, my 10 year old daughter was in the man-cave with me a few weeks back looking through the stash... "Hey dad, would you build a model just for me ?"... "Yeah of course..." I was thinking a wee Airfix 1:72 or something similar. "Great, can I have this one ?" And she's pulled-out my Fujimi 246 Dino 'enthusiast' series kit. So after some rapid negotiation, she changed to the La Ferrari. She's decided on an electric blue colour which she'd mixed herself from my Tamiya acrylics and it looks incredible. It's going to be a slow-ish build project but so far the only problem it's thrown at me is the exhaust openings in the lower body which need a lot of filing and thinning back to accommodate the pipes and the chassis/diffuser tray. If anybody here has built one of these, I''d be grateful any heads-up you can give for the rest of the build. Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment. Ian.
  16. '98 Firebird

    Second completion this week was this out of the box build of Revell's fourth gen' Firebird. Paint is Tamiya Metallic Orange straight from the rattle-can, looks to my eye like a perfect shoe-in for GM's 'Sunset Orange'. Not too much else to say except I didn't realise until I saw these photo's that the Turtle Wax was still hiding in some of the recesses... it's fixed now and I've also run a black wash in to the door joints which looks much better. All comments, questions and criticism welcomed as usual. AFN Ian.
  17. Hey folks, back with another non-NASCAR vehicle project: This time the excellent Revell ’65 Stepside. No chrome, low-profiles or carbon ceramic discs on this one, just good old sheet steel and skinny cross-plies and brakes the size of milk-bottle tops. Built straight from the box and painted in Tamiya acrylics (my own mix), great relaxing build with no vices apart from the bonnet/hood that doesn’t match the contours of the main body – apparently a common problem with this ‘family’ of molds, but I guess most folks here know that already - I didin't !. No matter I thoroughly enjoyed it. As ever please feel free to ask any questions or make any comments or criticisms. More soon, stay tuned. Ian.
  18. Whose Would Be Better ?

    Changed this inquiry into a poll . Feel free to add your choice(s) to the list ( example : I'd like to see a 1971 GMC Sprint SP-1 or How about a Toyota Stout ! ) . Have fun !
  19. 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
  20. A nice reissue. White styrene, basic tires, one wheel option, your choice of top down or top up. Decals for road racer or stock version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxoV33xKCBA
  21. Revell 65 Chevy Impala "Red Rusty"

    So I'm working on a Revell '66 Impala to be built in the style of my Lime Green '65 and wanted another set of the Foose wheels to keep the build style in tradition to the '65. So I got another Foose '65 for real, put the custom wheels aside in the '66 box and brainstormed ideas for the 2nd '65. I was going to make it a gasser Impy or slapping some mags and painting it baby blue of some sort, but then I saw the rear glass came broken in half in the bag and then I had this odd idea come over me and stumbled upon some rust bucket impalas upon a photo search for some inspiration. This is also my very first rusting, "junking", and weathering attempt along with simulating a "broken" glass, and although not to extreme levels I think it came out good considering just getting sloppy for the hell of it and messing around with Testors rust paint and oxide red primer. Mostly OOB, body paint is Rustoluem Gloss Red as an approximation for 1965 Chevrolet Ralley Red, and the frame is mist coated sears red oxide primer (which is a very close rust color if applied in certain coats). '55 F-100 Custom Hauler carrying this sorry SOS Paired with my LIme Green '65
  22. Revell is back with the full paint and assemble NASCAR kits, first off the line is this Ford Fusion in Kevin Harvick #4 Jimmy John's livery. Looks great, no name tires but that is easily solved and most of us will want to letter those tires for sure. Glass is super thin and prepainted, roll bars are nice and thin, no short shorts or mold issues. Even includes a figure and full decals of course. Aftermarket guys will make a mint selling every race stable colors imaginable. I'm really excited about the Napa Chevy SS kit, I just like the Napa colors. https://youtu.be/GSILqvW28mQ
  23. 64 Impala Lowrider

    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 an airbrush. I realised how much paint I've been wasting, when I looked at my bit of cardboard I use to protect my lawn from the paint.! I think I spent about £50 on paint for this 😳 Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms welcome
  24. 1983 H/O Cutlass

    Here is my take on the Revell 1983 Hurst Olds Cutlass... Body is Painted Testors Model Master Black lacquer and Testors One Coat Diamond Dust. The Interior is painted Tamiya Maroon... Tire decals from Fireball Modelworks. This really is a nice kit. One that I was excited about from it's announcement. It goes together very well. Grab you one, You won't be disappointed. I still have to get some better pictures, but these will have to do for the moment.. And as always, Thanks for looking.
  25. '69 Dart windows

    I'm building a replica of Ron Grable's 1967 Dodge Dart Trans Am race car. I'm using a Revell Dart kit with the engine from a Mopar Kit Car circle track racer. The Dart kit I have doesn't have any windows. Does anybody out there have them? I've attached a picture of the car. I don't own the picture. It's for reference. The most memorable car race I ever watched was in the summer of 1967 at Willow Springs Raceway. It was an SCCA National. Racing for the lead the entire race were Dick Guldstrand in his '67 Camaro and Ron Grable in his 1966 Dart, the car this one replaced. They swapped the lead many times during the race. During the last couple of laps a desert thunder shower started. On the last lap up the hill in Turn 3 Grable dove under Guldstrand as they entered the corner and took the lead again. He then pulled away a little really driving over his head in the quickly getting slippery conditions. Grable came around the big flat sweeping turn 8 and into the nasty decreasing radius hook that was Turn 9 then. Then his car spun around into the infield of the exit of 9. He kept the throttle on full bore and spun around 360° in the infield desert dirt and rocks, lost in the cloud of dirt in the air, and jumped back onto the track nearly T-boning Guldstrand. Somehow, they missed contact and thundered up the front straight for Guldstrand to win by a few feet. From the pits, we could see them gesturing to each other inside the cars as they went around the cool-off lap. Everybody around thought they were arguing. As they pulled into the pits, they both jumped out of their cars and ran towards each other. It was looking like they were going to brawl. But they hugged each other and slapped each other on the back congratulating each other on a great race. They were smiling and laughing. I heard one say "more fun than the law allows".
