Scale I Build

  1. 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.
  2. Hi everyone. Here's my new conversion. Restored and made from a damaged Jo-Han's Coupe DeVille kit bought on Ebay earlier this year (see last pictures). The kit was missing a few parts so I decided to turn it into a 4 door sedan version. Color is Olive green over "Sudan Beige", as close as possible. New interior front seats, roof line and pillars, new dual stripes white walls. Hope you'll like it, and thanks for watching.
  3. I just added Cragar SS and white letter tires.
  4. Guess it's time to start a thread on this one. Went old school on the chevy orange for the engine. Also,on the bed, I'm not sure what those weird scribe lines are supposed to be but they are no picnic to try to eliminate. Some filler followed by sanding and sanding.........
  5. Nice reissue. Lots of parts, can be built stock height if you wish, will require parts box wheels and tires for stock look.
  6. I guess this one is kind of finished but I was hoping to find a nice looking set of Mopar Rallye wheels and white letter tires but I wound up just buying a 1/18 GMP '70 Roadrunner. This one has a Hemi but I would have preferred 440 + 6 .
  7. 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.
  8. Here's the Revell 1968 Dodge Dart GTS. What a fantastic kit! Everything fit great, and I had pretty much no issues at all with the build, although I did have to shorten the rear axles to fit the wider tires inside the stock fenderwells. The color is Tamiya TS-53 Deep Metallic Blue over gray primer, and was cleared with Tamiya TS-13. The red stripes are decals from the Revell '68 Charger 2'n1 kit. The seats, door panels and dash are Apple Barrel Gloss Black craft paint. The engine is a mixture of Folkart Dutch Aqua with a touch of Apple Barrel Laguna craft paints. The wheels are from Morgan Automotive Detail and were airbrushed with Molotow Chrome. The rear tires are from Fireball Modelworks, and the fronts are from the parts box, although I'm pretty sure they came from the Revell '68 Chevelle kit. I did the trim in Bare Metal Foil and added door locks, valve stems, and ignition wires for added detail. Again, what a great kit, I really enjoyed this build. I included both indoor and outdoor pics to show how the metallic paint pops in the sun. Thanks for looking!
  9. Just finished Revell's 1969 Boss 302 Mustang. I used a custom mixture of Decoart Jack O' Lantern Orange and Folkart Lipstick Red for the color ( I was going for Calypso Coral, I think I got pretty close) and cleared it with Tamiya TS-13 Clear Gloss. The same colors, but with a slightly different mixture, were used for the chassis. The interior is just Apple Barrel Black with Pledge brushed on the seats, dash, and door panels for the sheen, while the woodgrain is all kit decals. The hood was painted with Krylon Short Shots Flat Black with a quick polish of Novus #2. I used BMF for the window trim, brushed on Molotow for the grille trim, and added heater hoses, ignition wires, door locks , and valve stems for extra detail. This is a great kit, although I wish the interior were a little more detailed, and everything fit together very well. I may have to buy and build another, lol. Thanks for looking!!
  10. Hi guys. Hope everyone's doing good. Here's my last build, this is a very rare R&R Resin kit of a '62 Coupe Deville I have since at least a decade. It is converted from the Fleetwood 60S by JoHan. I had poorly painted it with a saturated turquoise blue back then and had never been happy with it. Needed a good restauration. So, I offered the Cadillac a new two tone dress, as close as "Pompeian Red Metallic" with an off-white top. Black and white interior with black carpeting. Painted accent hubcaps and new hand made chromed V crests. Hope you'll like it. Thanks !
  11. I finished the AMT 1970 Chevelle SS454 yesterday. I know, same old--same old, everybody does them in red, but to me the most iconic Muscle Car is a Red Chevelle SS454. So the color is Tamiya TS-49 Bright Red. I left the interior primer black and brushed satin clear over the dash, door panels, and parts of the seats. I added valve stems, ignition wires, heater hoses, and an Accel Supercoil from MAD for extra details. The trim is Bare Metal Foil and the door handles came from Fireball Modelworks and were painted with Molotow Chrome. The final fit was pretty finicky, but after 4 tries I finally got it to look right, although I'm not happy with the gap between the hood and grille. I also sanded down the door window trim on each side, as it was almost non-existent, and used some .010" x .030" styrene strip for the trim. It's a pretty basic but familiar AMT kit with low parts count, lacking details, and showing it's age, but it turned out pretty good and felt nicely nostalgic.
  12. Hi guys ! Sharing today my latest Cadillac to enter my collection. Again, converted, detailed and restored from a rough promo model. Jo-Han only made the Coupe so why not feeling summer air with a top down version ?. I gave the Caddy new paint, hand sanded clear coats, thin accent stripes, larger white walls, mirrors, wood-ish interior panel doors, carpet etc etc... Hope some will like her!. Thanks for watching.
  13. With special thanks to a fellow Forum member for sending me a missing part, I was finally able to finish the '71 Duster 340 yesterday. The paint is Model Master Go Mango Orange with MM clear, while the hood is just black primer with satin clear brushed on. The interior is just white primer with satin clear airbrushed on and the black floors and dash are also black primer with Pledge brushed on the dash. The gauges are decals and the dash trim is very carefully brushed on Molotow Chrome. I added ignition wires to the engine, and valve stems on the wheels, while the window trim is Bare Metal Foil. What a great kit overall, and a generally fun build. Thanks for looking!
  14. Here's my 1968 Chevelle that I just completed along with a little back story. The owner bought her back in 1997 before the prices of Muscle Cars started going crazy with the intention of doing a complete restoration. Life and other things got in the way so it sat until a few years ago when he finally had time and resources to get working on it. The goal was to have a "triple threat" vehicle that looks and runs like a winner. He wanted it to be right at home at the strip, on the streets as a cruiser, and on the show grounds. After 3 years (actually weeks, lol) he feels like he accomplished his goal. Oh yeah, never mind the boxes on the seat, he just got back from the auto parts store when he took the pics, lol. He kept the 396 badges on the car to keep up the "wolf in sheep's clothing" façade, lol. The owner also kept all of the original parts in case he ever wanted to put it back to factory stock. He pulled the original 396 and replaced it with a 454 bored up to 496 cubic inches (not really, but who can tell in 1/25 scale plastic, lol), and topped it off with an Edelbrock intake and a Holley Carb (from Fireball Modelworks). The air cleaner is a machined unit from Off The Sprue. The paint is Tamiya TS-11 Maroon and is cleared with Tamiya TS-13. The lower panels are painted in Tamiya TS-14 Black and the trim is done with BMF. The interior is done in Black craft paint with some satin varnish mixed in for a little sheen. A column mounted tach was added and a triple gauge pod on the console behind the shifter. The exhaust is custom made with scratch built mufflers and 3/8 inch styrene tubing for the pipes, and the headers came from the AMT '67 Chevelle Pro Street kit. The wheels are custom made deep dish Rally's in the rear and the kit rally's in the front, while the front tires are also from the kit and the rears from Fireball Modelworks. I added Battery Cables, ignition wires, heater hoses, valve stems and door locks for extra details. This is a fantastic kit and was a joy to build. Thanks for looking!
  15. Hi guys. Sharing with you my very new conversion. I have made this 1966 Fleetwood Brougham out of a Jo-Han Coupe DeVille kit. The original kit was unpainted but fully built under thick layers of glue... It needed a refresh and a bit of love. Fleetwood's roofs are higher than DeVilles, so to get closer to the real car I created a new raised and elongated vinyl roof to receive the thin B and larger C pillars, also created new rear vent windows, new doors and interior wood-ish panels, new seats and floor carpet, new lower body molding trims and chromes, hand sanded paint and clear coats, white walls etc...Hope some will like it!
  16. Part of a four car set I built commemorating the Alberta cars we toured with in Division six in the 70's
  17. Hi guys ! Here's my last built of the year. The '76 Eldorado is the last official convertible by Cadillac, and I've made this one from the JoHan's Coupe. New paint, trims, wheels, WWs, detailed interior.... I'll give her a better and more accurate hard boot cover next spring. Hope you'll like it.
  18. Hi guys. Today I share a rare Cadillac I have in my collection. As we know, the 1960 Cadillac promos ( as well as many from 1958 to 1962 ) are all deformed and warped now, but since kit versions were not produced with the same material, some are still straight, like mine. I have replaced the original wheels with the ones from the '59 Eldorado Monogram's kit, which are way more accurate. This Cadillac needs a bit of work and detailing but overall is worth to show its fins !. Hope you'll like it.
  19. Hi guys. Here's a tribute to my own beloved 1973 Cadillac DeVille that I used to drive some years ago. I had a damaged 1973 Eldorado promo left that I wanted to restore with the exact same colours combination than my late DeVille. So here she is, with new paint and polished coats, interior wood-ish door panels, carpeting, white walls, front and rear fender shock absorber lines and detailed bumpers, detailed hood with thin gold lines. Scripts needs attention and I aslo need to find side mirrors, which is quite hard to do !. Anyway, hope that Caddy will please some of you. Cheers.
  20. Here is a 1/25 scale Revell 1949 mercury that I did recently. Headlights and street light are LED with scratch built background and street lamp. The phone booth is from Doozy. Posters are downloaded from the web and are all from 1972, as is the licence plate. The original plan was to do a replica of the Badlands film car, but it looked to dull in plain black Painted with Mostly MIG & Vallejo acrylics + hairspray/salt and Oil weathering.
  21. Hi guys. Today I share my last conversion. I have build it from an old JoHan's 1968 Coupe Deville kit. The kit was damaged so I decided to turn it into the 4 doors Brougham Cadillac was offering that year. The roof is completely new, higher and stretched towards the trunk, with new windows mouldings, new B and C pillars, new vent windows. The shoulder line on the body is also modified, more horizontal than the coupe. The interior is converted with plain front seats and wood-ish door panels, carpetting etc... New lower body mouldings to match the real car and set it apart from the Sedan Deville. Color is as close as "Spectre blue" with hand polished clear coats, and black matte vinyl top. Hope you'll like it.
  22. Built from 1989 issue Prestige kit. Several parts had extremely poor placement and fit on top of being warped. The opening doors and trunk were the worst offenders, so those were glued shut and rescribed. Also, some parts were missing due to rattling in a battered holey box for 30 years. Nonetheless, I was customizing anyway with mods as followed: Twin Supercharged Ford V8 swap comes from Mathew and Debbie Heys T-Bird Pro Street, with a custom made intake as the original munti-piece chrome unit kept hitting the Mercedes hood. Styrene scrap trees bent as intake tubes and oil filters turned into air filters as the original pieces were missing. Electronic fan/radiator comes was also sourced from a Revell Acura Integra. T-Bird Pro Street's side exhaust was used with heavy modifications to exit at the rear Steering wheels comes from AMT Silhouette Mesh screening was used in lieu of kit's vent piece, which was an ill fitting heap when it hit's the inner fenders Front and rear bumpers were omitted to created cleaner look, bumper pins were used to cover up mounting holes. Badging and such were shaved and smoothed. Custom wheels form unknown Revell source, with front tires being Toyos from Revell Honda Civic and rear tires from Revell C5 Corvette. Disc brakes were used from a Revell Corvette Sting Ray III Interior paint is Rustoluem Advanced Formula Flat Brown. Exterior is Tamiya TS-72 Clear Blue over Rustoluem Silver cleared with Pledge
  23. Vintage Revell 1/25. No major issues aside the side glass being severely warped beyond any us and the rear glass not entirely seating down. Went through two sets of the rear windows, the first one literally a slope due to warpage. The second one that's on here isn't a perfect fit ether but looks fine all things considered. First row of mods: Kit's seats were missing, so ones from a AMT 4th Gen Firebird Trans Am were used to fill that void. Exhaust tips of unknown source from spares bin Wheels are custom ones from Revell Acrua RSX, and painted Rustoluem Metallics Pure Gold Brakes are unknown ones from the spares bin and tires are sourced from a Revell SVT Mustang Cobra Front suspension has added upper A arms and springs, which the kit did not originally have Spoiler did not come with the GTP, but was sourced from a parts Revell 90 Grand Prix molded in white GTO/77 Trans Am style hood scoop is actually the optional roof scoop from a Revell Mitsubishi Eclipse Decals are from various sources, Lil Hustler ones being unused leftovers from the previous Datsun 620 build Interior paint is K-mart branded Grey Primer, and exterior is painted Tamiya TS-72 Clear blue over Rustoluem Aluminum cleared with Pledge And now the twist: LS1 motor from parts bin Revell 4th Gen 2002 Camaro SS LS1's T5 transmission was hacked off and replaced with a black molded FWD transmission. It was from an unknown source, but lined up with the LS1 block perfectly To fit this larger motor, some of the frame had to be shaved off and alt driveshafts were used instead of the kit's ones The left part of the engine bay had some work done with removing material and setting it back further so it wouldn't hit it. It was a very tight squeeze even with the work done Headers and K&N filter are spares bin pieces an unknown source, and the Turbo is a resin piece with the tubing from plastic sprue. Intercooler was also converted from a spares bin radiator
  24. Recently reissued 1/25th MPC kit. Fiddly in spots and the side bed pieces were so warped, that I had to glue the tailgate shut and rubber band them all together. Modifications as followed: L28ET SOHC I6 Turbo engine swap from an AMT Datsun 280ZX Turbo Exhaust tip from AMT 4th Gen F-body kits Bucket seats and steering wheel from Revell Datsun 240z. Steering Wheel gauge is kit's custom part and shifter is from unknown source Kit's leaf springs were warped and the left one was snapped on the tree. Kit's rear axle was used with custom 4 link like setup with rear springs. Wheels and tires are custom pieces from a wheels parts baggie of an unknown Revell subject purchased at a swap meet long ago. Brakes were from a AMT '67 Mustang, wheels were painted Rustoluem Metallics Pure Gold Interior paint is Rustoluem Advanced Formula Flat Brown; exterior paint is Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue under Rustoluem Aluminum cleared with Pledge.
  25. Hi guys ! Sharing with you my newest build. Made from a damaged JoHan's 1971 Coupe Eldorado promo, this convertible is starting a new life. New metallic paint and clear coats, new wheels and white walls, detailed interior and dash, soft boot, etc... After a long sleep rusting in a barn, the caddy now enjoys the quite roads of Route 66 . A special thanks for the beautiful diorama made from a talented friend of mine. Times are hard now, so keep safe everybody. Cheers !
