Scale I Build

Found 4 results

  1. Rust In Portugal http://rust-in-portugal.blogspot.com/ Example... a Chevrolet hearse. I think it may have started as a "flat-top" four door hardtop.
  2. Built one of these as a kid, at a time when I sill played with models in the carpet. I dutifully glued the wheels/hubs onto the axles over the slip-fit tires, so it did roll. Didn't corner worth beans, of course. The single remaining part in my parts box from mine is the 4-spoke steering wheel, center front in the pic below. Found all the rest as a parts-missing glue bomb on ebay just recently (tragic that it has a crack in the windshield), and it's handy that there is an ebay seller out there with reproduction decals (with silver metallic printing instead of the kit's silver foil, though). For the flames, lazy that I am these days on painting, I think I prefer the decals out of the Revell '67 Chevelle Streetburner version. Always liked this overall Tom Daniel design but have issues with various elements of it, such as the full width taillight lens, the bumperless rolled pan look, and the wheels. What I'm aiming for is a slightly de-tuned street machine custom look with regular front / deep dish rear rally wheels (hence my question about 24th scale vs 25th scale ones here), quad Buick taillights, a cowl induction-only hood, and a return of chrome bumpers. The clear roof panel begs for some kind of load in the back. My first thought was for several crates' worth of Mercury model car boxes on top of a folding table, as though it was all destined for setup at a model car swap meet, but then I could imagine some smart aleck saying they'd all melt in the sun. Then I remembered I had several giftaways of Hot Wheels from the GSL contests, one of them being a '49 Mercury. It'll fit just fine between the fender wells, and with a bit of detailing, it could pass for a 1/3rd scale model, or an overdone pedal car. Toss in a couple of old AMT kit trophies and it might look like something hauled in a car like this. Good excuse to cover over the stained carpet material as a way to salvage it..... Stay tuned.
  3. This is a model of an El Camino I owned many years ago . It had a 283 / 4 speed and was painted Roman Red with the Impala trim . The model is a Revell '60 Impala with the roof and bed from the AMT '59 El Camino grafted on . I had to lengthen the bed about 1/4 " to line everything up , and modified the tailgate and rear bumper . I used the Revell chassis and modified it to show the bed floor and a new gas tank . The headers and exhaust were made from aluminum rod . The engine and tranny are from the revel '63 Impala . The tires are from Fireball Modelworks and I don't know where the Cragars came from , they were in my parts box . I tried to replicate everything just like it was , right down to the 1987 license plate !
  4. I thought I'd share a few pics of what's on my bench right now . It's still a bit rough but I mocked it up to get a feel for what it will look like . Hope you like it !
