  1. Hi ! Here is my very first Cadillac conversion, made a couple of years ago. JoHan only produced Eldorado Coupes from 1971 to 1976, so I took a old "76' Eldorado Rancher" kit to make this specific version. As 1978 would be the final year for the full sized Cadillac Eldorado, I wanted to make the highest trim level. The "Custom Classic" was very distinctive with its 2 tones exterior body and also a duo-tone pillowed leather interior ( done with clay ). 2000 Classics have been built that year, only 25 with a sunroof, like my version. I unfortunately couldn't get the exact same colours at the time I built the model ( Arizona Beige and Demitasse Brown Metallic ) but I tried to get as close as I could. As she's my first conversion, some mistakes here and there..., like a missing "Eldorado" script on the front edge of the hood. Rear bumper and taillights have been modified, as well as the rear window. Shock absorber fender and trunk lines sculpted. It was so fun to do though , but putting the 1mm black line decals on fenders ?....no so much !
  2. Know about the whole Photobucket thing and I never liked that service much anyway, so now I can post directly on the forum Anyway, here's 1/2 RX7s i'm working on on top of everything else on my plate. One is mostly the Cafe Racer with a big a$$ turbo and some other upgrades, and its already painted Tamiya Deep Blue Peril (will post that one later). This one is getting further body adjustments (opened up the headlight to put in some clear ones with sliver backing), suspension upgrades, and a 2005 GTO LS1 with a supercharger from the spares box. Note this may not be to everyone's taste, and this isn't some 100% perfect show stopping contest build, but a fun build. Color is undecided for this one, so stay tuned!
  3. Girlfriend's '78 Trans Am

    Hello there! Happy to be making my first contribution to this site. I've been building models since I was 8 years old with my dad and have been hooked ever since. But over the past few years life has come first and my hobby has taken a back seat but over the past year I've got back into it full swing and have also brought my girlfriend into the hobby as well! She loves it and is an amazing painter. She usually paints and I glue and assemble. It's great to have something we both love and can do together. This is her '78 T/A dream car that she wants to build one day just like this. Am I a lucky guy or what!? lol This was her vission she painted all the pieces and I assembled she's amazing at what she does this was only her 2nd model!
  4. Just started this one. I fell like messing with different plastic right now, I plan to use some Caddy avalanchy interior and stereo equipment. Hoping all goes well to plan...
  5. heres my 78 f350 dually I'm about 99% done with it all i need to do is add the last few decals and the truck itself should be done...this is going to be a hotrod magazine drag set..i might get the amt Louisville kit to haul the car on the ramp body and tow the truck on a trailer...Gooseneck trailer was built from scrap pieces laying around...enjoy
  6. Hey guys, I no i'm going out on a long shot but I was wondering if anly company or anyone makes after market Pontiac Trans Am decals? I'm looking to build a Macho T/a which was a specail order car kind of like the GM COPO and YENKO. They only made 203 that year so I no its probally not possible if anyone makes decals for them. Any feedback or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks
  7. Just an ordinary AMC Pacer with a roll bar and only 426 HP nothing special. It does have a cowl intake from I think it was either the revell daytona or amt 68 gtx. Color is left over sapphire blue from my shelby blue crew cars. The fitment of the body before i even put the hemi in was frustrating, and i still gotta do the radiator hose. For some reason my mom's camera though that my replica of my truck and future replica dads dart were a better thing to focus on.
