  1. I started anothe truck build for another customer, this one is simple but gonna be nice as well
  2. Monogram 1/24 Terry Labonte 1984 Piedmont Chevy

    Hi everyone, My first finished build of the year. Texas Terry was my favorite driver growing up and I've always loved the look of the Hagan cars and the pre-aerocoupe Monte Carlo SS body. This build is stock, with the exception of Chimneyville Decals. Overall, the kit was a nice, fun build. I used Tamiya rattle can for the body and chassis. I went for an early season red chassis because I like the bright interior. For the rest of the car, I used Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. My biggest issue was with the aftermarket decals, which peeled on the edges when applying clear. But it's going on the shelf and overall I'm fairly happy with it.
  3. 68 Chevelle

    Well, if you haven't noticed by my profile pic, I'm a Chevelle guy. When I saw this kit coming out I knew I had to have it. This is the Chevelle I always wanted. I wanted to be the first to post, but because of work wasn't able to get the job done, so I got beat by a couple days.

  4. Tony Stewart 2016 Coke Throwback

    Hi everyone! My name is Jake and I'm new to the forum. It's tough finding a good NASCAR model community so I'm really pleased to join y'all. Here are some photos of my first NASCAR build, which I finished about a year and a half ago. I started with a Jimmie Johnson Snaptite kit and was pretty impressed with it. I didn't do much modification, just some minor detailing here and there. I used (I think) Slixx decals for the Coke throwback and some extra hood pins I got from Mike's Decals. Paint was TS-8 for the red and Vallejo acrylics for the gold. I just started the Bobby Allison Coke Mercury Cyclone from Polar Lights and cannot wait to get the 2 cars side by side. Thanks for looking!
  5. Revell 69 Nova 350 SS

    I had no clue as to what color I originally wanted to paint this one since it had been so long since I started it, (2014) but finally decided on Testor's Italian Red. Not too bad. I'll get rid of that finger print! Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  6. Revell 69 Nova SS 396

    The original plan was to paint this Tamiya Metallic green, but something happened on the way to the painting station. I decided to paint it Fathom Green Metallic instead. Here's some pics Thanks for looking! All comments welcomed.
  7. Trying to copy my son's 1:1 pickup

    I want to make a model of my son's 1:1 1981 Chevy truck he inherited from my dad. I've got the body itself sorted out, including scratch building the camper shell, but I need to figure out the grille. I did a Google search and found a picture of a model with the correct grille. The grille looks like it is resin. I'm looking for that EXACT grille.
  8. 2015 Kyle Larson Axe White Label WIP

    I posted previously about Kodiak Supply decal paper here. It's pretty amazing stuff. I'm a career graphic designer who specializes in motorsports design. Specifically dirt oval. That being said, Kyle Larson is my guy. With this being one of my first cars of making my own decals, I wanted it to be fairly simple so I can working out the kinks of the process. You'll be seeing quite a few more of his more specialized cars. I want to tackle the AXE Peace car next. I'll keep you posted on how the build progresses.
  9. I'm not a model builder. More of a model tinkerer. I'm hoping to improve as I've never actually successfully completed a model. I hope to learn the skills needed to be satisfied enough to actually complete one and mover onto number 2. I'm a Chevy guy by nature and mostly want to find 51 Chevy kits but will be practicing with others as well as trying to build the 69 Nova (I'd actually want to build a 70) . I missed out on the 51 Fleetlines and so will be looking to build those as well as get some resin 51's in other body styles. I'd like to also build a Christine 1958 Plymouth. I've been into model cars before and watch several youtube channels but I just never seem to stick with it enough to improve. I can look over ones I've started in the past and see where I could have done better so I guess that's progress.
  10. AMT 1959 El Caminos

    First up, started back in 2003 or so, painted in short cuts "Iris," I'm trying out the red window glass from the new release in it. What do you think? Next, remember when this was a new release? Well, that is when I started this one! I lowered the rear suspension by trimming the mounting tabs and then cutting a hole in the floor above the rear axle so the pumpkin could set lower. It is still not as low as the front but it will work for me. Tires are from the new issue 55 Cameo while it's sporting a set of AMT 64 Chevrolet SS hubcaps. It's truly a period piece because I am using the 63 Mercury grill in it as well. Last, but not least, the "retro rod" build. Engine is from the Revell 57 150 kit with the standard shift. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  11. AMT 57 Bel Air

    Painted Tamiya pure white and TS-44 Bright blue, this was supposed to be a rebuild of an older one. The older one is still soaking in the paint remover so I decided to start a new one. The engine is from the original issue of the 57 kit while the twin 4-bbl intake and valve covers are from the new tool AMY 57. That's it for now, thanks for looking!
  12. AMT 1957 chevy in progres pics

    hi everybody here is some in progress pics of my Chevy. it is the latest release of the somewhat new tool bel air from AMT. I am surprised by the level of detail this kit has. It includes spark plug wires and a firing order diagram it also has some bare metal foil and a full sheet of photo etch witch has the aluminum side panel inserts and all of the badges the one thing I don't like isthat it has plastic inserts for the white wall tires
  13. 1957 "Ch-emi" Nomad

    Its finally finished. My kit bashed, garage sale special, franken-chev is now officially under glass!! Thanks to all the help and support I got on this kit! Please excuse the saturated pictures, my phone not the best.
  14. The newbie here... OK typos aside, this thing is for sure... A 1/16 scale kit. This is my WIP 1957 Chevy Nomad garage sale special. It began its life as a incomplete model, but soon became something that I can tick my Chevy and Chrysler friends off. The simple reason on why I put a 1969 General Lee Hemi in it, is because... why not. The Dodge began its life as a complete model, though after some time it got somewhat destroyed. My hopes are to give the 57 "Ch-emi" the look of a rat rod, on top of the look of an old school street rod. Neat things done: Lowered car, put in a Hemi, roll cage, side exhaust, fuel lines, break lines, ignition wires, and cut out firewall. Neat things to be done: Transmission, electrical wires, finish model.
  15. I started on a replica for a customer of his truck, I really wish i had another kit I could back half and do it up
  16. I recently got a few older Revell 57 Chevy Nomad kits and these parts were in with one of the kits. There was also a 59 ElCamino bumper. I think maybe the 3 wheels & tires are from the Elky? They are Firestone Supremes. I have no idea what the rear end or engine/partial frame are from. Thanks for any help.
  17. I know I’ve said this before but this will be one of the last salvage builds I do from decommissioned builds I’ve done. I was just experimenting with stuff and decided to start on this
  18. This is probably the first model I created that I'm happy with the end result. With that said, it's far from perfect. Being that I'm still learning, there's plenty of imperfections like the misaligned front passenger side wheel, sub-par body paint job, and the overzealous amount of glue on the rear tires. There's also plenty of small details that I simply couldn't add in due to my lack of experience (although, I was able to paint all the Chevy logos gold, both on the grille and hubcaps). But I'm mostly happy with how it turned out, it's definitely unique, and I'm a fan of emergency vehicles. The model also came with a stretcher and some other emergency equipment, which I glued to the stretcher and kept separate. This thing is also difficult to handle, as it has many delicate details like the mirrors and siren that will fall off at the slightest touch. Anyway, thanks for looking and tell me what you think. I've got a Honda Odyssey lined up for one of my next builds, so hopefully that van can at least turn out as good as this one. Also, I found this old, crappy photo I got back when the van was still being built. As you can see, I didn't mask the rear floor completely, but I wasn't too worried since you cant see it very well. This vehicle does have a complete engine, but its mostly covered up and there's no hood to remove. Even if you could, the engine is mostly under the engine cover in between the seats.
  19. 58 Impala Roadster

    Greetings from mtr cty,,heres what I would do to a 58 Impala if $$ was no object for the 1:1 car. Its a kit from the 90's,, AMT 3n1 I got at a swap meet,,10$ I think. Modified parts are: Removed hard top,, Intake for the 409 mtr. Rims,,rear tires,,sidepipes,used custom front airdam that came in kit. Painted w/ Testors quickdry enamel. Hand painted interior. Kit came w/opening doors,,but they took alot of sanding+ size/fit work to get them to close decently. Hand painted sidetrim work as well. No BMF anywhere on this,,just taped it off w/tamiya tape,,and painted it. I think its one of Chevy's best designed body styles. So unique. Enjoy all the works here,,keep on building!
  20. 58 Impala

    Started on a Cuda, but was immediately disappointed with the model quality, so I shelved that for this model. Decided to go with a metallic grape,with a white roof. Not breaking the creative meter, but my apprenticeship must continue before I start modding builds. I imagine I'll be heavy modding whenever I get a 3d printer. I finally found an affordable printer capable of 1/24 scale.
  21. Gasser Front Clip

    I am trying to build a 55 Chevy gasser and would like it to have a removable front clip. How could I do this? The kit is Monograms 55 Chevy Street Machine kit.
  22. Hi everybody, I am looking for some engine ideas for a few builds. First is an engine for a 37 Ford I want to build as a gasser style. I also would like to build a 66 Fairlane in a Pro Touring or restomod style. Next is a 66 El Camino. I'm thinking about possibly a different engine for my 99 SVT Cobra but I may stick with stock. Finally is for a 1992 Firebird. 1992 is the year I was born and would like to build it as sort of a dream car/ birthday gift.
  23. So, I'm building the MPC Vending Machine kit, which is a replica of the 1:1 car. On the full-size the starter is mounted above the top of the block, it looks like: the kit has the starter mounted down on the driver's side of the block so I'll need to correct that...but I'm not an expert on SBCs at all...is the placement in the pic above standard for a particular year of SBC, or something custom for this one car? I'm trying to find some reference material to work out the proper placement and blankets and stuff...
  24. Greetings from Mtr Cty,, a recent 10$ find at a swap meet,,AMT's 55' Chevy Cameo. Such a beautiful body design,,and trim ect. Added a few "improvised" { AKA "Scratchbuilt"} bits,,rims,,headrests,,tires. Although the width of the top of the bed//front is wider than the cab rear. Not sure about the tooling on that one. Still a fun +simple kit to do. Sprayed w/Testors Quickdry laq,,,Burnt orange. Just a cruiser w/the 265 stock mtr,,nothin major. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program,,Cheers!
