Scale I Build

  1. First stage of painting on BM Camaro is done. I shot the auto-touch up white yesterday and the MCW rally green today. Plans call for installing the decals then clearing it with some Tamiya TS-13. Thanks for looking all comments welcomed.
  2. Yesterday I used almost a whole can of flat black paint to do the interiors and frames on two of these builds. I just had to see how they looked sitting on wheels. Thank you for looking all comments welcomed.
  3. Another Camaro project started. This time it's the convertible by Revell. Painted Tamiya TS-86 Pure Red. Here it is before the paint, mocked up with a set of AMT Firestone tires and Revell 69 Nova SS wheels. I finally figured out what is wrong with the Revell SS wheels, they are molded without the trim rings installed. A set of these from the AMT 69/70 Chevelle kit looks much better. They are the ones I'm using on the Revell 69 Chevelle. Thanks, all comments welcomed.
  4. Started yesterday, I believe that anyone that builds Camaros needs to have a Hugger Orange 69 on their shelf. Here is mine. Painted with Testors Hugger Orange and wet look clear. I took off the Camaro emblems for a cleaner look. This will be built out of the box except for tires and wheels. In other words, the cross ram intake with headers and the barely there exhaust system. I'm using the non SS grille on this build as well. I have a simple black interior to go along with the orange body. I want to put the black stripes on this, I hope they cooperate. Thanks for looking and all comments welcomed.
  5. Another MCW body I got back in December, I am combining this with the AMT 62 Bel Air frame and the six cylinder from the AMT 60 Chevy pickup.
  6. I got this body from MCW resins and decided to combine it with a Revell 1966 Frame. The parts line up really well. Still working on tires/wheels.
  7. I needed to get the 65 Impala for the engine for another project (home grown ZL1 69 Camaro). I got a Revell 69 Z/28 Camaro to build it and would have a left over 302. What to do? I'm taking the valve covers from the Revell 64 Impala and putting them on this 302, instant 327! The engine looks small in there. I have used the victor intake from a Moebius 64 Nova kit and almost have the engine built, but no pics. Here is how I'm building it. I've secured a set of Cragers from an AMT 65 El Camino kit and I need to find some tires.
  8. I recently acquired one of these for a really good price. After having a lot of the re-issues (prestige kit, the green kit one, and the latest) I was not sure what I would find. I have to tell you that the original issue of this kit blew me away on accuracy of body, engine detail, and chrome tree execution. Okay, the exhaust manifolds look more like small block ones than 409 exhausts but, it was a nicely designed kit with (except for the hideous {my opinion} custom treatment) was well executed. It's too bad Round two could not bring back all the original pieces for this kit. Thanks for looking, enjoy! More box pics and contents here!
  9. Hello again everyone! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving. The trip to Baltimore from South Dakota went great, very little rain, no snow sleet or ice! Visiting the grand kids was cool. Now, on with the business at hand, the AMT 63 Impala convertible had been soaking in purple power for ten days. I took it out and a lot of the original blue did come off, but I shot it with some easy off oven cleaner and let it soak for a couple of hours. Then I scrubbed it with a brush and here are the final results. While on vacation I kept tabs on that auction site and managed to pick up some 63 Impala original parts. Mostly all there except for the engine and body, but it also has a set of tires, hubcaps, fresh frame, and an unpainted interior. The spare parts came with original front and rear bumpers and the original box too. And the up top, which is just sitting on there right now. A little tire burn on the side, but that should be fixable. Here is how it looked when I got it. I'm not sure if I am going to use the injected engine or go with a stock one. Thanks for looking, it's nice to be back! All comments welcomed.
  10. I owned this 1969 Chevrolet C-10, got from a friend who needed the money, died last year, nephew bought it because it was sold new in Safford (still had the service plate with the manual) to a relative. It grew on me, found out why they are very coveted, much like the model kits! ? I nicknamed it The Green Barge because a friend owned a nice motorcycle named The Green Monster. Currently own a 1968 C-10, so can use for reference (which is the same blue this model was painted). Going to build for a future diorama idea, so not going to scratch-build an accurate chassis, but will grind off the left exhaust to replicate this truck (I wanted to put on twice pipes). Bought off Facebook Marketplace, it was built half decent, seller had stripped the body, I'm stripping and rebuilding the rest. The plan is to improve some things, and modify to resemble the trim specifications. The interior is going to be a major scratch-build: cut out the bucket seats and make a bench seat from Corian, dash will get gauges behind 'glass' (minus little auxiliary ones), add shift lever and turn signal, pedals, door panels were steel with simple arm rest. Exterior will have the upper trim removed, the raised wood grain needs to be removed from the lower trim, tailgate will be a major change, drill stakebed holes, modify the front bumper, sidelights need to be basic, and fix the horrible taillights. Scratch-build: the license plates, rear bumper, mirrors, toolbox, steps, driving lights (which came off my MINI). Aftermarket details: gauge faces, slotted mags, and the big deal item is the '69 grill! I took reference pictures with the tape measure in the picture when I sold it, will post them as I get to those parts. Start off with these photos to give an idea. Hauling flagstone: Hauling mountain bike: Replaced the perfectly bumper that I snagged on the fence post: Day that I said goodbye: Most of the parts, instructions with notes: The rest of the parts: Cleaning up parts of mold lines, and starting assembly. Puttying the massive ejection pin marks. Going to order Splash paint per paint chart, 503. The original owner had it repainted, including the interior! When I replaced the left headlight, discovered why. ?
  11. My hometown of Oskaloosa Iowa had an amazing 1/2 mile dirt track, with Eldon Iowa, about 40 miles to the southeast, also having a very good 1/2 mile dirt oval. Both ran stock cars; Oskaloosa on Wednesday nights, and Eldon on Saturday nights. What I'm picturing here is a representative of what could be found on those tracks back in the 1970s.
  12. 1948 Chevrolet COE, started with AMT 1950 3100 Pickup kit. Partsbox model, based on a resin Cab Over Engine body. Built this when film cameras was the thing, ran this through my studio shoot for Desert Scale Classic COVID Special contest (not entering). If I recall correctly, the COE resin body was All American Models, ordered from a magazine ad, not available now; required massaging the hood, and fenders. I had the bed left over from my Canopy Express project. The headlights, taillights, wheel centers, and 409 decals are from the 1962 Chevrolet Impala 409, which I made a demolition derby for the other magazine contest. Tires are from the horrible Nitto Lamborghini Countach kit, had someone turn aluminum rims. Front bumper is modified AMT Ferrari 250 SWB kit. Mirrors from the Tamiya Volvo BTCC Estate. Resin copy of Tamiya Vehicross gas cap. Detail Master photo etch wipers. Plastistruct diamond plate, the Bare Metal foil has wrinkled up, really need to rip all that off and make new parts, then paint with Alclad. Real Cherry wood bed rails with dovetail corners. Corian is the frame, since it's a true Curbside. Parma fluorescent yellow paint. Scratch-built the grill, running boards, license plate the moves up for trailer hitch. This is the second street rod I ever built, and no plans to build more. Thanks for looking!
  13. Thanks to a suggestion from this board that I build a Corvair in hugger orange, I thought instead I should get this one done first. Started back in 2008. Painted Honduras Maroon with clear coat, I have the engine done and the interior painted with Tamiya TS-69 linoleum brown. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  14. Started this one a few days ago, painted Testors Fiery orange with wet look clear. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  15. After five years, it is done! I started this one back on January 15, 2015 and just now got it done August 7th of this year. Painted Testors White Lightening with wet look clear, interior is Tamiya TS-69 linoleum brown, straight out of the box. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  16. Painted (I think) Testors Italian Red with ultra gloss clear, interior is Tamiya medium grey. This one is the original issue. Built box stock except for swapping out the 3 barrel for triple duces. Started in 2012 and just finished today. I had to super glue the top of the firewall to the body and then the front subframe to the body to get it all together. Frustrating kit for final fitting but looks good when done. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  17. As a companion piece to both the 69 Chevelle SS396 and 69 Camaro, I decided to build the small block version of Revell's Nova in hugger orange with Testors wet look clear. Thank you for looking, all comments welcomed.
  18. Started today, this is a companion piece for my hugger orange 69 Camaro. Painted Testors hugger orange with wet look clear. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  19. Started in 2011, I gave it a Tamiya Metallic red paint job with a wooden deck tan interior. I have some of the trim BMF but need to finish it. This got interrupted by those Corvette kits!
  20. Before I decided to get my 5 year old Corvette projects done, I started this one. Basically box stock except for a tire and wheel swap. The chrome trim on the side has held me up on this one. I need to get back to it soon though.
  21. Started back in 2015, I am finally getting around to finishing it. Painted Testors Nassau blue with Tamiya TS-54 light metallic blue interior. This will have the tri power big block in it.
  22. Started back in 2015, this AMT kit is an adventure. The front and rear bumpers did not fit well so there was a lot of sanding and puttying done to correct it. Painted Testors Fiery Orange with wet look clear, interior is Tamiya TS-69 linoleum deck brown. The 454 has the single 4bbl intake. Tires are from the new release MPC 70 Bonneville kit. I still have some fitment issues to deal with. I also have an MPC 74 Corvette convertible painted the same color that I am building as a companion piece to this one.
  23. Somewhat of a partial kit, I started this one in 2015. Tires/wheels and brakes (I think) are from a Revell 59 Corvette kit, painted Tamiya TS-20 metallic green. This will have the "bag of snakes" side pipes and a tri-power 454 big block.
  24. Started in 2015, painted Tamiya TS-97 pearl yellow with TS-69 linoleum deck brown interior. This one has a singe 4bbl big block and kit supplied custom mags, tires are from Model Haus.
