  1. Hi guys. This Cadillac is a Page Resin kit. The cast was very good but needed some prep. Originally looking more like a regular DeVille series, I've turned and built it into the Fleetwood series, with lower body trims added, a matching interior and a "Brougham-ish" upholstery. Definitely one of my favourite Cadillac in my collection.
  2. Hi ! Here is my very first Cadillac conversion, made a couple of years ago. JoHan only produced Eldorado Coupes from 1971 to 1976, so I took a old "76' Eldorado Rancher" kit to make this specific version. As 1978 would be the final year for the full sized Cadillac Eldorado, I wanted to make the highest trim level. The "Custom Classic" was very distinctive with its 2 tones exterior body and also a duo-tone pillowed leather interior ( done with clay ). 2000 Classics have been built that year, only 25 with a sunroof, like my version. I unfortunately couldn't get the exact same colours at the time I built the model ( Arizona Beige and Demitasse Brown Metallic ) but I tried to get as close as I could. As she's my first conversion, some mistakes here and there..., like a missing "Eldorado" script on the front edge of the hood. Rear bumper and taillights have been modified, as well as the rear window. Shock absorber fender and trunk lines sculpted. It was so fun to do though , but putting the 1mm black line decals on fenders ?....no so much !
  3. Hi everyone ! Here's one of the last conversion I have done in 2018. As JoHan Models have made Cadillac Fleetwood promos only from 1958 to 1962, since years and years I wanted so bad a 63 or 64 Fleetwood to add my Cadillac collection. So I started this one from the Convertible kit, and have used a old twisted donor model for the roof. Lower body trims are created with styrene rods and strips. Interior is not perfectly accurate, I am still learning ! She's almost done, some details to add, such as mirrors and scripts here and there... Hope you'll like it.
  4. Just picked this up at a flee market for 5 smackers! It looks pretty old and has already been started. I plan on restoring this to something better then original. Now time to dig in and dismantle!
  5. They look like they could be semi-important and am gonna ask before i drop them into the trash hamper
  6. I know it is likely this topic has been posted many times before, but I can't seem to find a solid answer. I am very new to this hobby and have started working on my first car. ( 1/24 Monogram BMW 635 CSI) I decided this to be the first car to work on. I realized that this kit was missing a wheel and rim. The remaining rims, which are basically just "plates" which lay on top of the wheel. (See attached). I was wondering, where could I buy replacement wheels and rims, for cheap? This kit is in 1/24 scale, and so I would probably need those wheels. Is there a certain place I could buy? Do they need to be modified heavily to work with certain kits? You can probably tell, I am pretty new to this Thank you for reading.
  7. Hello from New Mexico

    Hello everyone, my name is Alex, I’m a diesel technician and I love diesels wether they’re light, medium, or heavy duty! I’m new to building Scale models and this “White Freightliner” kit by AMT (1:25) is my first ever model I’ve ever built. I am very hooked on this hobby and I look forward to seeing everyone else’s builds and pick everyone’s brains a little bit.
  8. M/T 275 Pro Radials

    Anyone know where I can find a decent set of M/T 275 Pro or 315 Pro drag radials in 1/25 or 1/12 ?
  9. Freightliner COE Questions

    I have a few questions about the AMT White Freightliner cabovers (DD with sleeper) 1. What year of Freightliner is the kit based off of? What confuses me is the steps. Most early 70s Freightliner cabovers I've seen just have a looped strap for a step under the door and behind the front wheels. It appears that 1975 the style of steps on the kit came out, but if I remember correctly White Freightliner split and just became Freightliner. 2. How common was the Detroit 8v71T in Freightliner cabovers? I have a resin 8v71T/8v92 that has been sitting around for a while that I want to use in place of the stock Cummins. If anyone can help, it will be greatly appreciated. Top picture is a 1975, bottom picture is a 1970. Notice the difference in the steps leading into the door.
  10. Hi guys, I'm a new member here, although almost 4 decades in this hobby. I don't fancy my self as some supa-dupa (this is some Aussie lingo for ya) detailed modeler, but I definitively enjoy this hobby to the max. I'm into 50's, 60's and early 70's sport and racing cars. If I can't have them all in 1:1, at least I can make them as scale models. From time to time, I'm reading forums on this site with a great interest, but the special reason to join just now, was to reach one of the members through messages, although it seems that I scarred him? Anyway, maybe someone else can help me? Same as so many of you, I have models that I bought even 30+ years ago and they are still waiting for all those more important things in life to finally happen so I can start putting them together. One of those models is Heller Porsche 908 for which, during last 25 years in my possession, I unfortunately managed to lose the instruction manual. As I just finished 906 and 910, I though it would be good to continue with 908 too, before doing 917, to stick to chronological order of Porsche development. I tried various modelers instructions data banks on internet, I even contacted Heller in France directly and all to no avail. Heller customer department advised that they don't keep instruction for old models. What?!? So, dear brothers in hobby, if anyone has this model, can I, please ask him to trouble himself and run instruction sheets trough scanner and send them to me. As I'm new here, I hope I didn't broke any golden rule of this site by asking this and if I did, dear moderators, feel free to teach me how to avoid that in future. Cheers, Vukan
  11. C5 Z06 Vette Wheels/Tires

    Looking for the wheels and tires from a Revell 1/25 scale Z06 Corvette. As shown below. Will trade if I have something you need. Thank You!
  12. Nice reissue. Lots of parts, can be built stock height if you wish, will require parts box wheels and tires for stock look.
  13. AMT '71 Thunderbird

    Pics of what you get straight from the box.
  14. ModelKing/Revell Firebird Match Racer

    Hi All, Didn't build a lot this year, but I'm glad to have finished this, This is done box stock, except for the color and the decals. Basicly, I bought the kit for the decals. They fought me al the way though ... All in all I'm pretty happy with the outcome.
  15. Hi there ! Here is my last build, a '73 Mercury Cougar. Rusty, missing parts, should be a nice project car The kit is from AMT, 1/25 scale.
  16. I see (in someone's avatar...you know who you are ) the 1/25 Lindberg '66 Chevelle Super Sport kit is about to be reissued very soon, so until Round2 puts something up on their 'site, super-hobby has some very shots of the included parts from the last go 'round: http://www.super-hobby.com/products/1966-Chevy-Chevelle-Super-Sport.html IIRC this one one of Lindberg best offerings during their brief renaissance back in the '90s, so I'm looking forward to seeing how Round2 packages this kit this time around.

  19. Getting back into some hot rod modeling I am trying to find the best / most accurate parts to build a '50's to early '60's T bucket model in 1/25th scale. I have been out of the hobby for some time, but I have been digging through my stash and I realized I do have a wide selection of parts and kits to work from. In my stash: Revell Vintage Parts Pack T Bucket Chassis - complete Vintage Parts Pack '23 T Bucket body - complete Vintage parts Pack Speed Equipment - complete New Reissuse Roth's Tweedie Pie Butterra Chassis T Sedan and Phaeton - well detailed but too new for my current tastes for a chassis AMT Vintage Street Rod Series '23 T Full Fendered Roadster - complete Vintage Street Rod Series '25 Tall T Coupe - complete Various Double T kit parts and model - built-ups Parts Pack Drag T Chassis MPC Tognotti's T Show Rod - Started but no paint - some sub assemblies BlackJack T Street Rod Any suggestions? I want to do something like Tommy Ivo's T or the Kookie Car to early 50's in style and maybe a Rat Rod. I am impatiently waiting for my local shop to get in the double T kit and the '25T fruit wagon kits. Online dealers maybe cheaper but the shipping makes them more expensive IMO. What do you think of the suspension from the '29 A truck from Revell? Some pics of my sta-a-a-a-sh!
  20. Here is a Revell vw bus I completed for a friend. Easy build. Did the in side with tie-dye, has a home made table. With a reel to reel tape deck, tamyia paint an clear, custom decals. Detailed rims. Came out decent , hope u like it,
  21. Hi there ! I'll post here some pictures of my actual building, a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500, for my junkyard diorama. This car is from an AMT kit. I like that one because doors are openable. I've done some scratches and holes on the body : I've put an Iron base paint, before painting. I often do that to see the rust come from under the paint
  22. 1970 Pontiac Grand Prix

    Hey. I got this promo in a package deal a while back and I couldn't just let it go to waste. There was a big crack in the roof, no chrome (other than the headlights), missing pillars and it had no chassis. Thanks to The Modelhaus, my parts box, and my wife's nail polish collection, I was able to give it a new lease on life. It has a '69 front bumper/grille but I can live with it; I covered the rear "1969" license plate with a custom plate. Thanks for lookin'. I'll post more pictures later. Before... After...
  23. Here's the AMT 1953 Studebaker Starliner kit that I modified. It received the most votes in the jalopyjournal.com H.A.M.B. online salt flats racer model contest ending on January 14, 2011. The mechanics of the car loosely follows the SanChez '53 Stude racer from the early '60s. The color is a coral orange color that I mixed from Accu-Flex model railroad water-based paint then used their clear gloss and a lot of polishing. The kit's headlight covers, custom front pan and chopped top were used. Most of the trim was removed/filled and a B pillar was added along with door panel scribing on the roof. The engine is the kit's optional 392 Hemi with a front-driven blower and related parts from the ex-Aurora Carl Casper Undertaker dragster kit. Inside, the basics of the Stude kit's roll cage was augmented with additional styrene rod. An Early Years Resin seat and the '53 Stude's steering wheel adorn the kit's tub that got a new styrene floor and had most of the molded-in detail removed. The chassis is from the '53 kit with the floor boards between the frame rails replaced with sheet styrene and new pieces added for engine mounts. I Z'd the front frame rails while the rear has lowering blocks between the springs and the axle tubes. The Halibrand rear end and race tires are Early Years Resin pieces, the headers are from the Revell '69 Landy Dodge Charger (OK, they're from a 426 Hemi, so shoot me) and the exhaust pipes are aluminum tubing. The moon discs are real aluminum pieces from Scale Repro's Plus with three spots of dark grey paint on each one to simulate mounting screws.
  24. The stock 1960 Starliner by 70mach1 here on the Under Glass forum is gorgeous! Here's a different take on the same kit. I built this for the H.A.M.B. jalopyjournal.com (website for pre-'64 traditional hot rods and customs) custom model contest in 2011. It came in a distant second place in the radical custom class online voting by the mostly 1:1 forum members. The AMT '60 Ford kit body was pie-cut to create a wedge shape, as seen from above, but in such a way that that the front and rear of the car did not become V shaped. The bubble top and interior are from the Revell "Big Daddy" Roth Beatnik Bandit. My idea was to build something that might have been a Ford concept car in about 1957 to see how the public would respond to some of the 1960 styling cues. Paint is a custom mix of House of Color silver-white pearl and Trueblue pearl with several clear coats of Pledge (Future) floor finish. Here are some views of the body during construction. It's a curbside model but this shows the basics. I later removed the engine and only attached the air cleaner to the body. To see the other entries in the H.A.M.B. contest, go to http://www.jalopyjournal.com/forum/showthread.php?t=596428 -- mine is the Radical Custom #8 entry.
  25. Dodge A-100 Delivery Van

    Hi buddies, here is my last built in 2011 - completed in November. My Dodge A-100 Delivery Van: It based on the old IMC-Kit and a Resinbody (i think you know it) from Jimmy Flintstone To this body i will say, that it fixed perfect! The quality was really good and so i had only cut a little bit on the front and backframe. Also the windows and Doorpanels fixed perfect. Well done Jimmy! That was a easy and funny built. Enought of words, here are some pics - enjoy it ...more coming up... ... ...for a look inside the van...
