Scale I Build

  1. Recent "Original Art" series reissue of AMT 1/25th scale kit. Modifications as followed: Custom "Aero" front and rear bumper parts that came with Monza were used. GTO style hoot tach bump from unknown source. Most of LT1 motor from AMT '94 Camaro manifold; oil pan and water pump/pulley pieces came from AMT Monza V8 Custom headers (may have been the ones for the 350 turbo setup) from a MPC 82 Knight Rider Firebird Custom side exhaust made from scrap plastic sprue and muffler+tip from unknown subject Ricardo like seats and shiftier from MPC '70 Super Bee Pro Street Kit came with 3 dashboards, one was a newly tooled piece with better details that was used. Little did I know it was such a poor fitting piece that it required trimming to get in the grooves in the door panels. It worked out, but still Round 2 double check these things! Wheels are custom ones from a Revell '50 Ford F-150, painted Rustoluem Metallics Pure Gold. Front suspension was lowered as it sat too high, rear was left as-is. Yet again, front tires are from a Revell Acura RSX, and the wider rears come from what could be an AMT Fast and Furious Veilside Toyota Supra. Brakes are from a Revell 4th Gen Camaro Interior paint is Krylon Rose Gold Metallic; exterior paint is Rustoluem Color Shift Galaxy Blue cleared with Pledge.

  2. My dad bought this car brand new in 1977, I was nine years old. I remember going to the dealership with them. I remember questioning why he wouldn’t buy the 280Z. This car had a backseat, though it wasn’t much. As I grew, it became more difficult to climb back there. I was taller than anyone in my family. Eventually, he bought a 1990 Chevy Cavalier. I inherited the Datsun. I drove it for about two years. Rust had taken over the car. It started to become unsafe to drive. It was a fast little car, it had the Nissan truck motor in it. It also had a five speed manual. I learned to drive a stick on that car. The dealer installed the stripes after purchase. They also gave him a set of upgraded hubcaps. The only plastic kits I ever found this car came from overseas. They are models of the Sylvia. That is the name of the same car in European configuration. To sell the car over here they had to add 5 mile an hour bumpers. The front and rear bumpers are exactly the same. I separated the taillight panel from the rear bumper and fabricated panel that goes in between the taillights and rear US bumper. The hardest part will be trying to create the new grill below. This is probably one of my favorite cars that I’ve owned. I wish I could find one today!
  3. Not a bad kit at all. Very easy to build, bit of a fit issue with the shaker hood though. Over all a very good model.

  4. (Delete if not appropriate) Please no tirekickers. How many would be interested and for sure purchase a trans-kit of the 77 Monaco/Crestwood? It would come with body,rear bumper,tailights and tub/tub extension. Not sure yet if there should be trim for the wood,or leave that up to the builder. This would be mastered and produced by a professional who today produce very high quality aftermarket products,so it will not be anything as the resin blob offered on eBay. The price range my guess will be in the range $45-$60. You will have to supply donor-kit and extra glass. For now just checking interest. If the response is good i`ll get back with more details.

  5. I bought this model because I love wreckers of all kind. But when researching this particular model I found little to nothing. So I decided to post this build. I don't wanna keep it stock, so I made a custom 8-10 inch lift kit by using the snow plow mounts from the Gmc snow plow truck 1/24 model. I will keep you guys updated thanks in advance.
  6. I plan on build Caprice coupe with the fishbowl glass 77-79. I have required the interior,body and glass. Does anyone know if there was made any kit`s,diecast or aftermarket options for the early versions? Any suggestions are welcome but in 1:24/1:25 scale only. Thanks Tommy
