  1. 1970 Baldwin Motion Chevelle

    Everything under the skin of the new Revell 68 Chevelle is so nice, I figured I would beat Revell to the punch and use it to make a decent 1970 Chevelle. I’ve always thought the Revell snaps-tight Chevelle had a wel proportioned body, high detail door panels, and its super smooth! So out came my cut off wheel, razor saws and sanding sticks! Here is where I’m at so far. I started by checking the fit of the floor pan assembly. It fit like a glove! Then, I carefully removed the hood with the back of a #11 technique. I removed the upper cowl from the 68 and mounted it in the 70. To locate it properly, I tacked the 68 interior together with the firewall in place too. Positioned the upper cowl in line with the firewall and tacked it to the fenders. Then I swapped out in the inner fender sides to give the hood something to sit on. Satisfied with that start, I moved to the interior. I cut out the floor of the 70 first, then slowly started sanding the bottom of the rear seat until it sat in the right position. I built off the rear seat with the interior sides to the dashboard. Then after numerous test fits with the 68 floor, sanding, fitting and sanding some more.... I got it in place and in line with the firewall again! That’s where it stands right now. I have to find my L88 hood for the 70 now. I mastered and cast it for the AMT 70 Chevelle years ago and I think it will fit with a little modification. If not, it will give up it’s scoop to make a new one. Hope you like it, and maybe try this yourself! Questions and comments always welcome.
  2. A little comic relief Corvette

    I happen to be working nights right now, and sleeping during the day proves a little bit difficult at times. This afternoon while trying to sleep I noticed I had duplicates of the 1970 Corvette. When I went to combine the two kids into one box, I noticed one was molded in gray and the other in orange. I thought to myself it might look cool if I built the Corvette using different color parts for all the assemblies. So I tried it this afternoon. The results look better in my head then the actual model. It might come off a little better as a convertible. I do have a convertible kit and a whole bunch of orange pieces. The convertible kit is turquoise. So I might just do this again. Honestly this would’ve looked a little better if the T tops and the doors were gray. The interior engine and chassis came out pretty much the way I had envisioned. What do you think? In the end, I had a lot of fun! And that’s what it’s all about!
  3. 1970 Monte Carlo custom L88 hood

    The 1968 Baldwin Motion hood is in a mold box and awaiting silicon molding. But that won’t happen until Wednesday night. In the meantime, since I will be pouring silicone, I figured I would pop out another custom hood for casting. As you may have guessed from the title, it’s a hood for a First Generation Monte Carlo. Baldwin Motion never offered the Monte Carlo as a package in their Phase III line up, but I have always wanted to build a “what if“. The L88 hood was and natural choice for me since that’s what they put on the 1970 Chevelle. Plus the Monte Carlo has such long hood, the could be made longer, as on the 1973 and later Corvettes. I would also like to put the 1969 Camaro cowl induction hood on a Monte Carlo hood. It too will need a little lengthening.
  4. 1970 Buick GSX in Saturn Yellow

    This one was completed due to in joining the “Dring out your dead” thread in the On the Workbench. Thanks to Snake45 for starting this thread and helping me to “Gitter done” Thaks for looking!
  5. 70 Cuda

    Decided to do a base hood version of the Cuda. Blue Angels Yellow paint. SAM_0355 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0360 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0367 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0368 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  6. I was thinking of improving my airbrush skills and wanted to build something more or less OOB, and concentrate on trying out paint techniques. This popped up on eBay for £20. 38 years old and stil in cellophane! The box interior had that 'old' smell. The Barris decals are rub-on transfers and there's a sheet of self adhesive prismatic sticker material. I'm not going to use either of these, as I intend to paint designs on the body. I removed all the scripts and door handles. The mould seams n the body were feint but there were a few sink marks to deal with. I used the custom rear window and filled the gaps After a fruitless search for Pegasus wheels online, I opted for some nice rims from the AMT 60 Starliner kit, shod with narrow whites from the sorely missed Modelhaus.. A big canvas for some creativity!

  9. 70 Charger

    Couldn't wait for this kit to come out, and when it did I bought one immediately. Been waiting for some time to build it and since I just lost my job I have a lot of new found time on my hands for some builds.

  10. I have the AMT 1970 Ford Galaxie police car kit and I want to make it in the Las Vegas version. There aren't many stickers for this version which is fine, but there isn't anything in the kit that tells you where to put the numbers for the squad car. I have looked at the pictures on the internet for "Diamonds are Forever" cop cars, but since it is all night time scenes it is really hard to see where the number might be. I think there is a number on the passenger side trunk near the tail light, correct me if I'm wrong. If anyone out there knows the correct location of the squad car numbers, please let me know.
  11. 1970 barracuda

    Third ever build was a 1970 Plymouth barracuda. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Missed some spots with paint in the engine since I don't have an airburish. There's also a very small gap at the top of the windshield but I'll take it. On to the next one.
  12. 1970 Dodge Challenger

    Hi all! It's been quite a while since I posted any progress on any of my models. I recently set up a new model desk and finally finished up my Dodge Challenger, so here are some studio pictures of the finished build. Enjoy!
  13. CHEVELLE HELP!!!

    So i got some stuff from a good buddy of mine and he passed me on this what looks like a PROMO kit but i'm not too sure cause i've searched on ebay and can't seem to find one close enough promo wise to it. Can anyone help me out here and let me know what this actually is? It's a really nice clean car, well kept.
  14. Mustang 1970 - Boss 429

    This is the Mustang 1970 Boss 429 I just finished. First model in 20+ year for me and I must admit that I'm quite happy with the result. Far from perfect but I've learnt so many things while doing it, it's only going to make the next model better. Body Color: Testor Competition Orange/Flat Black, Tamiya Clear Coat. (all rattle can...don't have an airbush yet...) Scratchbuilt the battery (and cables),front shocks and spring, windshield washer fluid tank, wired the engine ignition...(well partially...)

  15. Here is my Hobby Heaven 1/25th scale Custom 500. I was inspired by the film "Magnum Force" and wanted to build a 1970's police inspector's car like Harry Callahan's. I decided to paint the car a Ford Medium Brown Metallic, a correct color for that model and year. The paint is actual auto paint - a two part finish with a color base and a clear coat. I did not like the dog dish hubcaps that came with the car, so ordered a set of aluminum hub caps from Park's Parts. I detailed the interior and dash, using authentic gauge images supplied by Best Model, along with the correct license plates for that period. I added a strobe light, courtesy of the Starsky and Hutch kit, and ordered a pico LED from Police Models. I also wired the engine to make it more realistic. The engine supplied with the kit is not the correct one, but used it anyway. The air cleaner came from another kit.
  16. 1970 Chevelle SS 454

  17. 70 Bonneville

    Thought the car looked pretty cool, plus you never see many kits of the full size cars, so I picked it up.
  18. 70 Torino

    Just got the kit a couple weeks ago. It's not a bad kit, though I don't like the thin metal emblems. Almost lost them, and on top of that I bent the metal that goes over the tail lights. Over all though it came out good.
  19. 70 AMX

    Could have been better, but the kit isn't that great. Wish it had the stock stripes too.
  20. AMT 1970 Chevelle SS

    Hello, I just finished this model car. Took about a month total, which is the longest I have ever taken to build a model (usually takes me a week to do ). The kit is an AMT 1970 Chevelle SS (Jack Reacher Issue). I used colors from Testor's Special Value Acrylic Paint set. It has the LS6 motor in it. Had a lot of trouble putting on the front bumper, needed to shave headlight openings like instructions suggested but did not go all way due to fear of breaking it. Hood doesn't not fit on properly because I cut it into thirds and glued it back to make hole so the engine could be seen. Scratch-built Modifications include: custom roll cage, side exit exhausts, side view mirrors (kit does not come with any ), windshield decal, and rear spoiler. I had a lot of fun building it, learned a lot. On a scale of "shelf of doom" to "completely awesome" I rate it an overall "meh". Could be much better but I'm really happy with they way it turned out. Thanks for reading! Beep Beep! Here comes the pictures... Non-staged photos: wait there's more...
  21. I missed this kit the last time around...has anyone gotten the new release?
  22. Well,it`s green so it blends in lol. This is the Monogram you can build T/A or streetmachine. I wanted somthing a little diffrent. Paint and primer is Tamiya,i did a fatal mistake of polish it with compound instead of polish, both bottles are close to identical,sloppy of me. I used the 440 Magnum engine from the 69 Revell Charger,coupled with the kit 4speed,i also used the exhaust with some modifications. Put on some R/T and six pack emblems,antenna,exhaust tips,some tire decals,these where not shaped correct so they are not perfect fit. It still got the 340 six pack air cleaner and air grabber. The engine room is very spartan on detail,so i try add heater box and hoses,also an windsheild wiper motor. Then some decals/warnings. The radiator is modifies original coupled with the 69 Charger fan cover. Ok,here are some pictures. I might go with side decals later on,thanks for looking.
  23. 1970 Cuda

    I love my Chevelles, my Challenger, and my Charger.......but I haven't been able to stop messing with this thing since I finished it. It came out better than expected!
  24. Mopars

    I think I did a pretty good job on these considering the kits weren't much.
  25. This was created box stock from a 2000 release of a Revell snapper. The color is from testors lacquer line of rattle cans. It lays on too thick and fought me the whole time. It would be nice to get an air bush sometime. Since doing my first vinyl top a few years ago I like doing them now and saw it fit to do it to this car because of deleting the stripes. Comments welcome thank you for looking! Happy Holidays!
