  1. Built this as a gift for a friend, whose daughter is in the Naval Academy. They love Corvettes, I asked what her favorite color is, so tried to match it. It was a free kit, was brush painted, and no engine. I had an engine from a '39 Chevy model done last century. I didn't know the engine was 1/24 scale, until it wasn't fitting! Had to thin out the tunnel until it was paper thin. So I guess it's a 507. LOL I wasn't happy with the paint in some spots, needed to sand and primer as if it's been repaired. The steering wheel is from the parts box, hub is from the decal for the hood spear. I made the antenna retractable. I made a box for it. Got a ribbon at the county fair, just because. It's wired to a Corian base, the wood supports hold it down. Her name is Sarah. GO NAVY!
  2. Chrysler 300 hood ornament

    Bought a very nice '67 Chrysler 300 promo. Complete other missing the hood ornament. With Modelhaus being gone, does anybody have any idea where I can get one?
  3. The best $50 I have ever spent

    Today I got the 1967ish Plymouth satellite for $50. I have now fulfilled a dream of mine to own a 60s mopar muscle car and I am crazy happy!!!!!!! I will be posting some pics of the car on a local drag race Facebook group in on to see if anyone can identify the car so I can get some more info on it and try and learn some history on it. Unfortunately the hood was used as a trailer for behind a quad/snowmobile. Mid you have any question I will do my best to try and answer them. the car will be called the Satellite that fell out of orbit.
  4. 1967 Shelby GT500 SUPER SNAKE

    Hello, all. My name is Arturo, and I'm relatively new to the forum. I'm a Ford Mustang guy, and am currently building a 1968 Shelby Cobra GT500 by AMT in 1/25 scale. The progress is slow, as I want to add in as much detail as possible, and the AMT kit is mediocre at best, but I can't help but think about my next build. I'm looking to replicate this car as closely as possible, down to every last detail: https://www.mecum.com/lots/SC0513-154080/1967-shelby-gt500-super-snake/ I have an AMT 1967 Shelby GT350 that I plan to use the body and parts for this build, but I'm having trouble with two things,;the tires and the engine. Per my research, the engine is the same 427 used in the Leman's winning GT40 MK II, but Shelby modified it for this test run specifically. I've purchased the Revell parts pak 427, for the build, but that comes with a dual intake manifold, and per pictures of the actual engine, I think Shelby used a single cobra hi-riser manifold. The problem is, I can't seem to find a decent cobra hi-rise manifold. The car itself is 1 out of 1 built, and was used to showcase the promotional Goodyear Thunderbolt tires, which is my second issue. I've no idea where to find the tires used, or anything similar. I figured with all the knowledge and expertise on here, someone might be able to steer me in the right direction! Regards, Arturo

  7. '67 GTX

    Where to begin... Well, when I saw the movie Tommy Boy, I fell in love with the GTX. I cringed when they destroyed it in the movie. From the moment in the gas station to when they hit the deer. UGH! I saw this kit at Ollies for 8 beans so I bought 2 of them. My plan was to make a Tommy Boy car ans the other would be a S&M car. First thing I did was cut off the top. I've never built a convertible car before so I was in unchartered waters. After removal, I ground down the excess plastic level with the rear window opening and then went to the front window and started grinding away. As I built the car, I couldn't believe how many pieces were omitted. I know it's a race car but c'mon. The kit had a lot of flash. I've never had to deal with it this much before. The boot was made with a piece of sheet styrene cut down to fit covered with some vinyl I picked up at the fabric store. The heater hoses were made with a busted pair of ear buds. Everything else was pretty much box stock. I added the wipers and battery from my parts bin. Thanks for looking
  8. '67 GTX

    Started on the 1967 Plymouth GTX today. Planning to build this one 'Day 2' with a drop top. Stay Tuned...
  9. '67 Impala

    I built this over 15 years ago. I'm not sure of the color code but I do know it's Duplicolor. I kept this one pretty much box stock. On this one, I applied a little bit of BMF on the emblems and I filled in the gap in the hood where the glue on intake was. I love the lines on the '60's cars. Thanks for looking
  10. '67 Chevelle

    I finished this kit over 15 years ago. I don't know the col other than it's blue ;D I built her pretty much box stock with the exception of wiring up the under hood things. Back then I wasn't that much for painting up the emblems. I never wanted to make it too messy. From the first pic I can see that I added a pin head for a door lock. Too much light! GRRRRRR! Thanks for looking
  11. '67 Corvette

    I started this kit about 15 years ago. All I was able to accomplish was painting the body. If memory serves me correct, the paint is Duplicolor GM Blue. This was the fourth model I've worked on since getting back into the hobby. The interior is Rustoleum white with hand painted details. I did do a wheel and tire swap because I didn't like what the kit came with. The kit did not come with any of the clear trees so I contacted Revell and they have since made it right. Pictures were taken prior to receiving the clear trees. as you can see, poster putty is holding on the chrome trim. One day I'll take some fresh pics and post them here. Thanks for looking
  12. 67 Impala

    Not bad for a kit that was incomplete when I bought it. Wish it had emblem decals, but it came out great.
  13. ......good evening to all you fellow forum members,...I pose a question to those in the know regarding all the various MPC/ AMT 67 GTO kits on ebay, and at my LHS.............what is the opinion of you guys about what issue may be the cleanest, has the best chrome, overall nicer in general to start a project with, as some versions that are weak or poorly produced as the years have gone by. I saw a pale blue one online a few days ago, looked good, or what I could see thru the bags,,,,,anyhow, jump in here and give me an idea as what version, or box art I should grab.....regards, and thanks in advance,....the Ace........
  14. 67 Camaro

    Loved the first kit so much I went out and got another. There's still a few flaws and I'm putting the finishing touches on them. I just wanted to get the pics while it was nice and sunny out; we're expecting rain soon. The color, of all the big bottles of yellow paint they could have, is Blue Angels Yellow oddly enough. As always I built it stock for my collection.
  15. 67 Camaro

    Ever since I found out they were making the model, I've been excited for it. I think this is the best year for the Camaro from a styling stand point. This was one of the best kits I've ever built. The pieces fit good and everything is there. There were plenty of decals as well. I only had two issues with the kit: 1. While there was a hole in the transmition for the drive shaft, there was not one in the axle of my model. So I drew some blood trying to put one in for it. I don't know if something went wrong with the molding of mine or not. But it was an issue. 2. The other issue was the tires. They have pins which have to be inserted into them. They didn't fit onto the rimes right and it took a lot of playing with it so the tires would be straight. Over all though, I was happy with the kit.
  16. 67 Comet

    Been busy with work, but finally found the time to work on something.
