Scale I Build

Found 16 results

  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. I received this cheap kit yesterday, and I could not resist getting the body out to have a look. This kit was started already, but only a few parts were painted, and everything is still in it’s tree thankfully. The body had been roughly painted inside with alu silver, I’ll probably leave it and go over again with the AB. I’m thinking deep gloss black with no stripes, satin black or metalized gunmetal for the brightwork. Kit chrome is, as always, too bright. I have gone over the shell with scalpel for the shut lines, small files and grit to re-shape and crisp up the slightly flabby front end. I have opened up all the intakes a little, to gain that agressive cobra look that the molding seems to miss. Proportions are excellent though. Next up will be some minor filler detailing, and I should probably then leave it alone and get some other WIPs under glass! I’m loving that naked body!! Thanks for watching Here’s the studio setup for those interested 🤫
  3. I've pushed everything else aside for my latest obsession, building this unique 1966 Fairlane AWB. It will be loosely based on the rather obscure Prestone Silencer car. A Hilborn injected Cammer will provide the power. An AMT Fairlane GT and a Kings Comet will donate to the cause.
  4. I could use some whole seats, some partial seats, or just the backrest section of the seat. I can hack off the backrest from a 1968 seat and attach it to a 1971-76 seat bottom, like i did with the one at right. They have to come from the 1968 kit since the 1969 and 1970 seats were molded from warpy vinyl. I have plenty of 1/20 Corvette stuff to trade. Both MPC & Monogram ALSO looking for suggestions on where i can find a 1/20 or 1/16 master cylinder. The MPC 1/20 Corvettes look a little naked under the hood with no master cyl. Ya, these kits have a lot of other shortcomings but i have soft spot for them.
  5. Howdy folks,,just finished a swap meet 15$ MPC 1/16 84' Vette. S-built : Roll bar,,hood scoops,belts,rear wing, I added the rear tires from a MPC 1/16 Cobra kit. Rims came w/the kit. Used Testors Transparent Grape over dollar store F-Blk primer. Hardware store Autumn Red interior. Neat vintage kit. Thanks for looking,keep up the great works!
  6. My version of the '32 Deuce Coupe from the Revell 5-Window kit. I decided to trade in the Hemi and stuff a Blown 427 Ford from a "Revell Parts Paks" kit. And I do mean STUFF! It was tight. I tossed out the body for a Jimmy Flintstone chopped version. Wanted it chopped, but I didn't have the cajones to try it! Some things best left to the pros. Got some big fat meats off eBay called "Mickey Thompson Sportsman's" that gave me that little extra badness I wanted and to help the rake since I was not channeling this baby. Went with a bright yellow (Rustoleum Sun Yellow) because I haven't done a yellow car yet and not to replicate Milner's from American Graffitti. No fenders for me! Tried my rookie hand at blacking out the grill. Oh yeah, I almost forgot to mention that I snapped the body down one whole side while trying to massage it into shape. I almost lost my mind! SNAP!!!!!! Arrrrrrgh. Fixed it pretty good though. It snapped on the A and B pillars all the way to the rear fender well on the right side of the car. We can still see it, but I tried my rookie hand had a Tamiya putty job. And here is the interior that no one can see! LOL. I lost the Fuel Gauge decal, but found it stuck to my arm hours after I gave up looking and painted it black! Thanx for looking and once again thanx to ALL of the members of this board that provide guidance and support to everyone. Next up for me, a 53 Jeep Wagon (my dad's).
  7. Hi all,,got this at a recent DAMM swap meet show,,10$-- 1/2 started glue blob. I ez-offed every thing,,and went for this burnt orange/root beer color ,,testors quik dry spray,,,and decided to change the intake of the big 427. as well. Hardware store nylon step washers/spacers {8 cents a piece} for the injector tips,,scratch built injector tubes,,gonna do a few other "non-normal" things to this one. Well see what happens,,keep up the great woks! S
  8. Not sure at first where to go with this but did settle for a subtile street machine. Older AMT,got it built up as a Nascar,tried to improve it a bit. Comments and constructive critism is welcome. Thanks for looking,here are some pictures.
  9. Call this one done. I could not find a outside mirror for it,but at least 7 rear view mirrors,typical. This one has the rear view mirror molded into the window AMT 68 Camaro Z28,orange car on box,tons of flash and little detail. VCG Resin brake booster. AMT 67 Impala engine.transmission heater hoses and mid-muffler forward exhaust. Shorten drive axle. Tamiya TS30 base and TS13 clear. Stock rallye wheels with Pegasus alu sleeves. Rubber alternator/fan belt cut from rubber sheet i got from Mike DeLuco. Engine decal from VCG Resin and Slixx. Bent some chrome sprue over a candle to try make the exhaust a little fatter. Here are some pictures, Thanks for looking.
  10. Hello. After little building because of weather i decided it was time to get going again. I thought i`d give this old Camaro a chance. It is molded in "lovely" orange and have tons of flash,but after some clean up,fitting and mock-up it is starting to look like a car. Still have the dead cow in trunk stance,i think it`s mostly because i have not glued the body to the chasis yet,but i`ll get on it. The wheels are sleeves from Pegasus with inserted original Rallye wheels. The engine who follow the kit was a joke. I had a spare 427 from the 67 Impala SS who got it`s home in this one,and it fit pretty good. I will also try use the plumbing from the Impala,and i found a period correct brake booster on Ebay,not to be found in the kit. Color and clear are from Tamiya. I thought i`l let it rest over night before i start fondle with BMF. This is the kit. Here is where i am at now. Thanks for looking.
  11. This came out well. It's now one of my new favorites.
  12. Hi all,,heres my version of the 1/25th Revell 68' vette,,,,I did it as a combo car,,drag/Tran-am style,,sortof like you could use the car for either style. I did a few mods to it,,different windshield,rims + tires,scratch built roll bar,put wing on the trunk deck. Side pipe headers are from the spare parts bx. Put different headrests on seats. Other than that its the stock kit. Just a different spin on the Vette,,thanks for looking,,and happy building!
  13. This one was fun! Ive had it for over a year. The engine and most of the suspension is all aluminumed out. The heads are flat black, there are red and blue fittings accents all over.The engine was my favorite part.This kit has a beautiful engine! The body was a quicky, I used krylon blue turned out decent. Sports car club of america sticker under the hood that you cant see cause of my useless camera. The drive shaft is not in there correctly but I dont wanna go back and fix it. Once again sorry for the poor photos. Enjoi!

    Cobra 427 S/C

    Hi all. This is the first model I have completed in probably 6 years. Until now I just have not had a dedicated place to work on my kits. I'm very happy with the way it turned out, I just wanted to finish it and get it on the shelf. Color is Tamiya Mica Blue, hood is from rattle can, rest of body was airbrushed. This won't be my only Cobra by any means, I have ideas for a few more. Hope everyone likes it. Sean
  15. I built my 427 Cobra back in 2001. I built a "street" Cobra S/C 428 FE for it with 400 rwhp, solid flat tappet cam, worked over iron heads. I now built a all new casting, Genesis 427 side oiler, punched out to 527 cubes, large solid roller cam, custom aluminum heads etc,.... haven't chassis dynoed it yet, but should be between 600-650 rwhp & TQ. We raced 360/410 winged dirt sprint cars for 12 years then retired, so I have several 1:18 scale 427 Cobra's, one being a Franklin Mint, all aluminum body and many sprints. I just bought my first 1:64 18 wheeler. My brother-in-law is a trucker, so I'm wanting to use it for a diorama I'm planning on building for him. Here's a photo link for my Cobra. - http://s509.photobucket.com/albums/s331/427HISS/My%201966%20Ford%20427%20Shelby%20Cobra%20Replica/ Story of my Cobra, photo's & other toys- http://www.motortopia.com/427HISS Some, of my diecasts so far- http://s509.photobucket.com/albums/s331/427HISS/Diecasts/#!cpZZ1QQtppZZ32 Thank you, Kevin
