  1. Decided to do a base hood version of the Cuda. Blue Angels Yellow paint. SAM_0355 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0360 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0367 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0368 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. Hi everyone I've been building and scrapping this build for going on 3 years. This is my first model build I've ever done. I would love to get ideas, help, or any other feedback to help me move this baby along. I have a bunch of ideas I want to incorporate into it from some of my favorite builds. So far I'm going to be making a efi itb dodge NASCAR engine. I made the wide 5 wheels from some wheels off of eBay. I think I definitely need some kind of flares to widen the stance (I think it looks too narrow under the stock fenders). I'll post some quick mock up pics below. Thanks for looking and look forward to see what you all think.
  3. I just finished this one after a 5+ year build. It's is a representation of the documented last 'Cuda convertible to roll off the line. There is much conjecture as to why it ended up with the non-matching orange seats! I used a seat from the AMT Duster kit, and re-scribed the pattern on it to represent the base trim level 'Cuda seat. I then cloned that seat in resin to make the other seat. The pattern is carried over to the rear seat. The dash has a Rallye instrument cluster grafted in from an AMT kit. The steering wheel is modified from a Coronet. The engine was borrowed from the Monogram Challenger T/A, changed over to 4-bbl carb. Feel free to comment. I hope you like it!
  4. These are the only two photos I have of one of my early efforts. I built this in about 1975, I think, from the kit pictured. I recall having to remove the rear suspension from the kit chassis and replace it with leaf springs and scratch built shackles. Like my Chevelle, I built it per NHRA's 1975 rules for Modified Production--from the same rule book I'm currently using! Anyway, the photos are barely worth sharing (the model probably wasn't that great, either!), but, I was proud of it, even so!
  5. Third ever build was a 1970 Plymouth barracuda. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Missed some spots with paint in the engine since I don't have an airburish. There's also a very small gap at the top of the windshield but I'll take it. On to the next one.
  6. New AAR hood for the new Revell 1:25 scale Cuda kit. This is not based on the old Revell AAR Cuda hood. This is my own creation. I used my friend's AAR Cuda hood for measurements. It should be availbale in about a week or so. I need to do some more finish work on it. I'm thinking of posting these on eModelCars, since a lot of people seem to not like ebay. I can sell for less on eModelCars without all the ebay fees. If you're interested let me know what you think. Sam

    '71 Hemi Cuda

    My girlfriend and I just finished our latest project together, this time we decided to do a Hemi Cuda in plum crazy. We're pretty pleased with this one other than the fit and finish of the kit itself in places but it happens. A big thank you to the site for providing techniques on how to strip the chrome off the bumpers. Much happier with them in body colour. Now on to the next one!
  8. Revell 1/24 '71 HEMI® 'Cuda Hardtop I saw this model at my local drug store and it was on sale, so I got it. This is a picture of the painted body sitting on the frame: I put some 19" rims with low profile tires on it, I think they look much better than the stock ones that come with the kit I need to do a little detail work with the black strip, but i really like it on the lime green. and of course The Hemi: I will try to post more as it get it done.
  9. Hi. Had this old 70 Cuda laying around and i thought give it a new chance,had some parts missing and overall in pretty rough shape. Not really sure what style it`s got,i just wanted it to look really mean,street machine with some 70s race car flares and 80s tuning style decals and so on. It`s obviously an bastard since there never was any T/A Cuda`s? There is also lot`s of inspiration from Japan car scene,with the wheels,flares,the oil cooler up front. I added fuel injection with 8 separate throttle bodys,(This maby make six pack sound dumb,oh well). I added Momo steering wheel,half cage,the interiour was going to match the decals,also added a Hurst shifter and some gauge decals. I tried give some under hood detail,these kits dont really have much,so a little improvment is better then nothing. I kinda like the outcome,low,fat and nasty. Here are some pics,hope you like it and comments are welcome.
  10. Does anyone make headers for the 340 small block?
  11. The WIP: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=88641 The Unboxing Video: The Painting of the body: The Painting of the smaller parts: http://youtu.be/O1c6ez5oS_g Thanks for watching!!
  12. I love my Chevelles, my Challenger, and my Charger.......but I haven't been able to stop messing with this thing since I finished it. It came out better than expected!
  13. Thought i`d just post it as finish before i was tempted to throw it in the dumpster. Did so many errors and faults i could write several pages on it,but i`ll cut it short. I forgot to paint mirrors,messed up decals for the interiour,forgot to paint the underside of the hood,wrong color on the radiator beam,forgot to paint the top of the front housing the lights,grill etc. I painted the shaker in the same color as the surrounding of the grill,but the paint was really weird,like it got sand in it. So i stripped it,then painted it satin black,with flat black gasket,but this paint was weird too,it was only flat on spots and i stired the can really good before paint,so it`s in strip right now. And to top it all,i was painting an Chrysler 300C the other day,the Cuda was getting clear on the same day. It was in the same room,but far away from where i painted the Chrysler. Even so,it`s full of paint dust from i was painting the Chrysler,the list go on and on and on The paint is Tamiya. Decals i found on parts on Ebay. Tires are from Revell 69 Charger. Wheels are from Scenes Unlimited. Plug wires are Hobby Design. I do not recomend these,way to stiff. Radiator hose from Scale Production. Heater hose,i dont remember. Plates and quarter decals are from 71 Cuda Street Machine,MPC? Some photos. Thanks for looking.
  14. With the 2013 Cannonball drawing closer I thought I'd post my entry from 2011. It was my first time being in a cbp and a total blast to be apart of. The color is Testors One Coat Lime Ice, the model itself went together very well. I would like to note that this was the first car I was ever brave enough to buff down with sanding pads, until this the thought of taking anything across the paint job was considered suicidal. But it turned out really well in the end and I'm happy I did it. Anyway before I turn this into a long and likely boring story I'll just start showing pics. I'll have a few more pictures up shortly, thanks for looking!
  15. Since i have been waiting for parts for my other projects and got overwhelmed by boredom i started a new kit. It`s the Nash Bridges Cuda from Revell. I`m not sure why but yellow was never a favorite color of mine,it kinda mess up the lines of cars and make chrome "disappear". So i went for a blue metallic,since it`s not meant to look like any factory option or 100% stock i thought no harm would be done except for maby anoying the purist. This is my first time with BMF,and omg what a nightmare and the result there after (more to do) I want to keep this clean and simple,and got steelies with dogdish in the same color as the car. Not sure how to lower it but i`m working on it. Engine will be stock,and i thought i give it a shot on try wire it for the first time,and i hope it`s a little more easy then this BMF stuff. Also it will get white interiour and white hemi decals on rear panels. Hopefully it will look good. Comments are welcome. Here are some crappy pics,only have my phone so.
  16. Where do i find decals for the the 1970 Plymouth Cuda? These are the one i`m searching for (see picture)
  17. Not sure where to post,but check out these cool illustrations from this blog: http://ebodies.blogspot.no/ Maby some good ideas for a model kit?
  18. The 1970-1971 Plymouth Rapid Transit System [RTS] Road Show cars are all found and restored (as necessary) , and are in the collection of one Steven Juliano . The attachment is of the 1970 Duster from that show . Has anyone attempted to replicate one or all of the cars from this collection ?
  19. This is a work in progress started several years ago. The engine of course received the bulk of the detailing. Since Monogram's old Hemi had little detail with only an inaccurate timing cover, I began by scratch buildng the whole front of the engine. I adedd the oil pump and filter, and created a water pump. once satisfied with the look of the basic engine. I added plug wires and fuel lines. The engine compartment on this kit is very sparse and still in need of completion. firewall and water pump was drilled for heater hose, and lines added, as was the was the master brake cylinder vac line. Still needed as some will notice are heater blower motor and batery + cable, along with wiper motor and a few other small bits. On the suspension, as with this old kit there are some details lacking, but I kept it simple with only the addition of rear shocks and drilling out the exhaust tips. One bit of detail I concentrated on with this kit was the suspension markings used on the real counterparts from the factory. A keen Mopar guy will pick out discrepancy in colors used, but this was done using various images of concourse restorations of other Mopars I have seen over the years. Hope you enjoy picking an old guys efforts apart. Will have more projects to post soon.
  20. I have tracked down that one of the 9 - 11 '71 Cuda Convertibles built was Hemi Orange with white billboard markings. I did not find the interior color. I presume the only choices would be white, black and orange if they had orange. Any references? Thanks, joe.
  21. The Cuda I bought after my house burned down when I was 18. It is currently under construction, it's about 3 years old. The Super Bee was an unpainted glue bomb I recently salvaged. Suprisingly it came apart clean with no breaks. It now has more detail than in the pictures. I'll get up new pics when they're done. Thanks for looking.
