Scale I Build

  1. I have always felt that Revell’s 1968 and 1969 Corvette kits captured the look and feel of that C3 body style the best. My only beef with this kit is that the rear window is incorrect. But I don’t feel the need to correct all of them. Maybe just the replicas of my father’s car. Over the years, they have been offered in many different variations. The 68 has been offered as a convertible only. A couple times with the “rare” small block hood. Oddly, I never cared much for the big block 427 hood. I did like the L88 hood much better. I may be biased because my father has an aftermarket L88 hood on his 69 Corvette. Here is an assortment of just some of the issues of these cars. It is not by any means all of them. Since the 68 was only offered as a convertible on 69 only offered as a hardtop, I will be swapping parts from one to the other to make the missing links. The 68 hardtop is currently in prime at work. And may be in paint by tomorrow night. 69 convertible is also there and will probably be in prime tomorrow. Two of the cars are earmarked to replicate my father‘s car. The first one will be a medium blue metallic with a small block hood in place, and the rally wheels that came with it. The second one will have the L88 hood and American Racing Vector wheels that are currently on his car. All in all, there should be at least six builds in this thread along. Probably more! Lord knows I have enough kits. Can anybody really say that? Anyway, here is four of the first six. Correcting the small block hood was a bit of a challenge to make correct, or at least to my standards. I bought one off of eBay that somebody had resin cast a few years ago. To say the least it was horrible. For some unknown reason they sanded down the front and rear of it. It fits like garbage. And that’s being kind. The hood out of the box has a depression in the middle of the insulation on the underside. This was so you could cut out a giant rectangle for a blower to stick through the hood. On a convertible? Really? Is that a thing? I know, I’ve seen it. But it looks real dangerous! Anyway, the seller made a halfhearted attempt to fill that area but it was still smooth. So I did my best to fill that area with a section from an extra hood so that it would have the insulation texture. I don’t think it came out too bad. So I made a mold and cast more of them in resin. I resisted the urge to sand down the front and back of them like the other guy did! LOL! I think it came out pretty well! That’s it so far. I’ll take some more pictures of the other two at work tomorrow. Questions and comments always welcome good or bad!
  2. Hi guys ! Sharing with you today this Jo-Han's 1969 Cadillac Deville convertible, my first build of 2019. It's a promo that I have converted into the convertible version, as Jo-Han never proposed this specific model. ( just the Coupe Deville and the Eldorado ). If I recall, I think I got that promo for 3 bucks about 15 years ago because it was totally damaged. Half of the roof was gone, such as A pillars and windshield. The body looked like a cat had chew big parts of it, was full of little dents and most of the original paint was scratched. I didn't know what to do with it at the time but I couldn't let it go, so I kept it and restored it. I have detailed the interior with carpet, wood-ish inside panels, created a soft boot and added front seat's headrests and wider white walls. For the colour, I tried to get as close as its original one, such as Sapphire blue Met. Still a few details to finish yet, such as antenna, scripts and mirrors but overall this is it. Hope you'll like it.
  3. Gonna start posting some of my pics that got lost. Here is a 1969 Charger that I did a few years ago. Guards Red and Black 1 (7) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (8) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (9) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (10) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (12) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  4. When I found out that this model was coming out I almost cried. If it wasn't for the 1969 Mustang I would never have become a car guy and would never have gotten into model car building. By chance, one Sunday while getting ready for church, I passed a show on SPEED TV called the American Muscle Car and the 1969 Mustang was the subject of the show. They made the car sound like the greatest thing ever built and I became hooked on cars from that day forward. I watched the show every week, absorbing as much knowledge as I could. The color is Blue Angels Yellow. I had two issues with an otherwise excellent kit. The hood did not fit right, and the stripes for the hood got messed up, so i have to order new ones. Haven't had a chance to put on the clear coat yet. SAM_0450 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0451 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  5. This was a really cool project. It had been on my mind for a couple years. I saw the car in an episode of Muscle Car Of The Week. It’s an online YouTube show bringing mostly cars from the Brothers collection. LOTS of inspiration! Special guest appearance from Linda Vaughn! The shifter and platform are removable. I figured four ease of transportation to and from shows and club nights, this would be a good idea. The platform doesn’t mount to the bumper the same way it does on the real car. So what do you guys think? I’d love to hear any questions or comments. Thanks for following along, I really enjoyed this build!
  6. The major mods to the 69 Hurst Olds convertible body are complete! I’m liking the way it looks so far! I’m using the ‘72 Indianapolis Olds convertible as a donor kit. I worked from the front of the car to the back. Reason being, the windshield dictates were the up-top will live. The underside of the cowl has mounting pins for the windshield. Next I narrowed the rear seat. For now the interior is mocked up with the ‘72 side panels. Windsield temporarily mounted. With the up-top in place, I could get a feel for where the tulip panel would live. The tulip panel all trimmed up. Here are a bunch of mock-up pictures. Hope you all like it! All questions and comments always welcome!
  7. Built this a few years ago. I ended up displaying it in a mode l shop near where I live. Unfortunately the guy who owned the shop ended up closing, and stole 8 of my models including this one. Today all I have is pictures, but at least I hope its under somebody's glass somewhere.
  8. Not a bad kit, pleasure to build. Wish I'd have gone with black though. No engine picks, kit was missing some pieces for it.

  9. I am in need of parts to put a 1/18 die cast DOH '69 Charger back together. Someone robbed a bunch of pieces off of mine and it would be nice to make it complete again. It's just a shelf piece and will display OK once it is complete again. The body and paint are in excellent condition on the model - not sure why someone would have ripped a bunch pf parts off of it, but people do what they do. Mine is not to reason why, as they say.List of needed parts is as follows: 1) door mirror 2) pair of vent windows 3)windshield wipers 4) gas cap 5) steering wheel and column 6) complete exhaust system Or would be happy to obtain a damaged or worn Charger that I can use for the parts. Can purchase or trade. Thanks in advance.
  10. Hi Gang: Looking for 1-5 pcs of the Custom Jeepster Wheelcovers. Got a few Jeepster parts to trade if that's what it takes. Not interested in resin or substitutes from other kits. PM please and Thank You
  11. Got the new Yenko Corvette kit. I love it! The kit came out great.
  12. Hello everyone. Well this isn't really on the work bench yet as my plans are to enter in the model car show in February. But, I do need some help. This wheel be my first time lowering a model car and I would like to keep the realism of it if possible. The rear end I have figured out. The front suspension is another story. A-arm is mounted to the frame and there isn't a lot of room to hack off the spindle. I was thinking of sawing off the A-arm to bring it up some but there ain't a lot of room to do that. So any suggestions, advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
  13. Been questioning whether or not to get the kit as I hated the 68 kit. I must say this was worth the money and it came out looking not to bad.
  14. Hi all! I am new to the forum and would like to share pictures of my Dodge Charger model which I'm currently building: I picked this up from a yard sale last year for maybe $5. The model quality is quite bad, so I figured I'd do something custom and not build it as the General Lee. The chrome on this model was terrible, I stripped everything for re-chroming with Alclad. The engine was primed and sprayed using Zero Paints Orange. The valve covers which came chrome were stripped and painted matte black. The wheels and roll cage were painted in Zero Paints Gold. The wheels actually had great detail after stripping off the old thick chrome. Detailing the wheels. After spraying the stripped parts with Alclad you can really see a difference in quality. Stripping the chrome basically saved this model from looking like a cheap kids toy. Detailed the engine with some spark plug wires which was a first for me. Also created my own pulleys and fan belt using black tape. For the interior I wanted to do something stock so I went with a blue interior. I sprayed Zero Paints light blue metallic over black so that it will be a couple shades darker then the exterior which will be done over white primer. I added a touch of red to the tachometer for something different.
  15. Moebius 1969 Ford SWB converted to 4x4 using the AMT '78 Ford kit for all 4wd parts as well as lights, tires, and roll bar. I still have to make or buy front locking hubs.
  16. Just found this gem whilst perusing eBay ; 1969 Mod Top decal : http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dodge-Plymouth-Blue-Mod-Top-Vinyl-Top-decal/251887116041?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D444000%26algo%3DSOI.DEFAULT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D29005%26meid%3Da2024ee2180c42be8871576ea342b252%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D251888101545&rt=nc I recognise that this seller --at least in-name -- is new ; any-one have experience with their product(s) ?
  17. Hi! This was the kit i started as i register on this forum a year ago. Have had some issues on the way,been putting it away and pulling it back million times. I tried to figure out a theme for it,did not want huge chromed wheels,and make it look bagged,i do like the style sometimes tho. So it is supposed to represent somthing you can drive everyday,haul down the dragstrip or throw around the track. Drivetrain is LS7 with two massive turbos,this linked to an 6speed manual,big brembo brakes,some meaty tires,the wheels are 17". The body is stock besides shaved markers,door locks,the rear wing,the front spoiler,and it`s lowered and given some agressive camber. Inside is stock beside Viper Coupe seats. I have not finished the exhaust, still waiting on some styrene rods. Color is Tamiya white pearl,the primer is actually red,this is why it looks grey. Then there are decals (i was unlucky some places) from Firebird Design if i remember right. Not everyones cup of tea,but here is some pics.
  18. Old build, fresh pics. I built this one twenty years ago, but it has held up pretty well. See all the details at the link... http://www.svensworldofwheels.com/69_pontiac_trans_am_page.html
  19. I have yet another question regarding the 1969 COPO ZL-1 Camaro from Revell . I recognise that this kit has de facto SS/RS grille / headlamp doors , as well as RS tail lamps ; however , it is "missing" the RS's back-up lamps . I also have noticed that there's a set of clear , square 'lamps' on the "glass" tree ; are those the RS's back-up lamps ? If so , how would one go about adding them to this COPO ZL-1 Camaro kit ?
  20. I think I did a pretty good job on these considering the kits weren't much.
  21. One of my favorite Ford builds.
  22. Hi All, Finishing a 1969 Stingray, I pulled the motor, wheels and some suspension parts from a Z06. In England now on business and hope to finish up early March. Regards, Nels
