Scale I Build

Found 11 results

  1. My latest project, a Revell '64 Impala SS done as a street machine. I am taking the engine and tires/wheels from the AMT 68 El Camino Street Machine kit and transporting them onto the Revell Chevy. I am going to use the lowered suspension for this build. The tires are big and littles so I will have a rake once it's done. Color I think will be Mythical Maroon. 396 Big block with street blower from El Camino kit. I'm still in the process of building the engine. Tires, wheels, from El Camino kit with headers from AMT 70 Impala kit. I had to move the transmission crossmember back for proper alignment of the engine.
  2. The next one was supposed to be the new (a few years ago at least) Super Shaker 64. But I had trouble with the paint so I found this old body as a stand in. Painted with Testors' Classic White. You are seeing the tire/wheel combo I'm using for it. I took the 327 from the 65 Chevelle wagon kit and turned it into a 283 (by swapping out the valve covers for ones that say 'Chevrolet"). More later....
  3. This one used to be a rose, I decided I did not like it so I shot it with Hugger orange. Some slots from the parts box, wide good year tires from someplace, and firestone fronts. The backing plates were done by using two sets of front chromed backing plates from the AMT 63 Impala kit and painting them with Tamiya clear red. Kit supplied engine with intake from AMT 62 Bel Air kit. Interior is Tamiya tan.
  4. I got this because I liked the roses along the side. It sat for years until I decided to give it a coat of clear. I put some Pegasus gold low rider wheels on it. Parts box air cleaner I painted the carpet area and put in the custom wheel from the Super Shaker version of this kit. I'm going to use the custom nose and rear on this one. More later....
  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. Hi, putting this pics into the good topic. Here's my personal conversion of a 1964 JoHan's Cadillac convertible into the Eldorado model. I am a beginner but I think the result is decent enough to share. Hope it'll please some of you. Thanks !
  7. I understand this isn't for the faint of heart Mopar nuts and some of ya are gonna spout out "YOU PUT A WHAT IN THAT POOR OLD DODGE?!". But, since the 330 had a slant six on the base models this combo pays a modern homage to those slant sixers with a twist. This was the AMT boxed Lindberg kit i got on markdown for $7.50 at HL, and since I rarely do things OOB I brainstormed some customizing ideas on what to do with it. I found a resin 2JZ and resin turbos that a friend gave me a while back in my stash and that got the spark going for my next project on top of a closet full of kits i plan to chip away at. Interior is Testors light gray rattle can and basically OOB, added a dash gauge cluster piece (from a Revell pro stock of some sort) and a 57 'Vette steering wheel with a custom stick on the steering column to replicate a shiftier on the wheel type config. 2JZ resin motor has resin twin turbos mounted on modified headers from a Ferrari Boxer 12, plastic tubing as intake pipes, and a custom side exhaust made from a Mustang muffler and Lamborghini exhaust tips. Cadiator from a AMT Dodge Viper, and suspension is pretty much stock but added new drive shaft to go to 2JZ tranny and modified engine mounts on suspension and transmission brace. Wheels and tires are from a AMT Dodge Concept Car builder (that looked as some child did his/her own "crash testing" as it's body all broken, but wheels were intact for only $1). Paint is Tamiya TS-60 Pearl Green cleared with Pledge, and the frame is Krylon Stainless Steel Finish. I also added a Japanese Licence plate from a Aoshima Skyline of some sort because why not. To those who appreciate homages, I hope you enjoy!
  8. I was almost finished with the paint on this car and made some pretty dumb mistakes. This was the first car I chose since getting back into the hobby. She spent a few days in the purple pond and then Dawn Detergent and water. I've decided to spray Duplicolor Primer/Sealer to hopefully ensure that I don't have ant issues from the previous work. I'll sand her down tomorrow and shoot the second coat. Then it'll be time for Duplicolor Universal Black! I'm posting from my iPhone and it isn't very friendly with the text box and adding attachments. Here's some before and after and then after the strip down pictures. After those are photos with the new primer.
  9. I bought this kit back in 2001. I dug this kit outta my mom's garage a couple weeks ago. I had originally painted it with a Testors Red and didn't like how it looked. It spent some time in the purple pond (you may begin to see a trend here) and I stripped and sanded it all down. I sprayed it with Duplicolor Primer/Sealer and will sand it down tomorrow and spray the second coat. In currently undecided on what color I should do this car in! I've been researching it like crazy and just can't choose one. Hopefully I'll figure that out soon.
  10. Does anyone know if someone offers stock hood for the 64 Mercury Comet? The ones i have seen so far are the teardrop and the one with the huge air intakes in front. I need the stock one.
  11. Just finish the Lindberg Plymouth Belvedere. Nice kit imo,AMT and Revell should take notice on how to mold plated parts like bumpers from Lindberg. It`s more or less box stock besides i used Magnum wheels and new tires from the AMT tire pack and some heater hoses. The interior is gold with tan inserts in seats and doorpanels. Sadly i dont have any decent picture,should have taken before assembly. You could build this with the slant 6,but of course i had to go with the 426 Commando. I`m not sure the engine color match the real deal,but i tried to make it look original. The 6cyl will be saved until a later on wagon project. Anyway,it`s done and here are some pictures.
