  1. Well here i am again, starting another model. I happen to be a fan of strange/uncommon cars and engines, which makes this build super interesting for me! The plans are to lower the truck, add some cool fender flares, and some killer wheels. But you cant have a ridiculous truck without a ridiculous engine, i'm currently torn between four engine choices (1994 Corvette Ls, 1968-73 Corvette engine, adding a supercharger to the stock 4 banger) I'm now out of school working full time, so progress may be slow but hopefully I can keep progress onthis one.
  2. Donnie Allison Mercury Cyclone II - Coke

    Hi everyone, Here's a build I finished up a couple months ago but neglected to post photos of. It's Donnie Allison's 1969 Mercury Cyclone II. Or sort of. He never drove the flat-nosed Cyclone II, just the "W" nose. But I only realized this halfway through the build and decided to just finish it as-is. It's the Polar Lights re-release from a couple years ago and goodness was it a lot of trouble! The chassis fit was poor, engine details were soft, and of course it wasn't even the right car. Not wanting to waste too much on a kit that isn't up to par, I built this out-of-box. One nice thing about this kit is that you get 2 full engines. I went with the 427 and added the 429 to the spare parts bin. The red is Tamiya acrylic flat red shot through my airbrush, and the gold is a Mr. Color lacquer that is just stunning. I used Testors Ultra-Gloss Clear (I think). I used the kit decals and they were very nice. The chrome pieces were too bright, so I sprayed some Tamiya TS-79 semi-gloss clear over them. Despite all the issues, I enjoyed the build and am pleased with the result. And as this uploads I think I'll go pour myself a glass of Coke... Thanks for looking, Jake
  3. 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.
  4. 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 !
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. They look like they could be semi-important and am gonna ask before i drop them into the trash hamper
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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 ?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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!
  14. Nice reissue. Lots of parts, can be built stock height if you wish, will require parts box wheels and tires for stock look.
  15. AMT '71 Thunderbird

    Pics of what you get straight from the box.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.

  21. 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!
  22. 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,
  23. 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
  24. 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...
  25. 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.
