Scale I Build

Found 2 results

  1. This was an interesting project to be sure. Build two versions of the same car in different scales. 'turned out to be an interesting comparison how two companies approached the same subject. Monogram made the 1/24 kit and MPC made the 1/16 version. Both cars were painted at the same time and 2K clear were used on both. Colours were Tamiya TS40 metallic black and Tamiya TS76 Mica silver. the silver was also used for the interior but was sprayed with Tamiya flat. Then it all got a light was of black to highlight the seams and knock back the silver a little to look more like the vinyl of the car. Both kits had challenges all their own. See the captions below the pictures for more details. Thanks for looking All finished and sitting on their wheels. Most noticeable differences are the badging and the T-tops. Monograms were clear and sprayed with smoke. MPC were solid and painted body colour. Much fitting had to be done to get the MPC t-tops to fit. Rear view of both. The red stripe is vinyl tape cut down. Bodies had to be carefully sprayed to get the graphics right. Kits had decals for this but they were never going to work. Vinyl tape was also used for the very classy Astro Wheels....which are one of my favorites for this year of car. Side by side caomparison. Suspension on the Monogram had to be lowered quite a bit. I made the front wheels poseable as well. The MPC had working steering and spring loaded front suspension. No alterations to ride height was necessary. Overall the Monogram was much better detailed. You would have thought the larger scale would be but this was not the case. Interior of the MPC 1/16. Not too bad but could have had some better detail. Same for the engine on the MPC. At least it all fit. Interior on the Monogram was much better as they provided decals for the dash. Both cars have a grey flock for carpet. Engine on the Monogram was also much better detailed. Decals were a nice touch.
  2. This will be OOB. I decided to start it while waiting on paint for the Daytona Charger. I am thinking maybe of painting it that unique burnt orange color if I can find a good match. I did one a few years ago in basic black.---John
