Scale I Build

Found 260 results

  1. Yes, the wait for the 4x4 version is almost over. I have a '70 long bed on the workbench as a I write this. Photos of the 4x4 parts will be forthcoming, I'm waiting for Fotki to get back on line. Box art is already in the works. Also we're also getting a 65-66 F-100 based on the on the current kit. Dave got the go ahead just last weekend and I saw the 3D artwork at the NNL East. Test shots of the 65-66 kit may be ready by late this summer. Along with the short and long bed stylesides, we'll be getting a stepside for first time. -Steve
  2. Tamiya's Mazda Miata meets Ford Mustang 5.0 V8. I started this in 2001, been sitting in the box until this month. I made most of the difficult modifications long ago, but stalled when I needed to figure out how far to go for engine mounts, and filling in the matching points. I have photo-etch engine accessory parts, which I have never tried before, so hope to find a thread that shows what to do. Meanwhile, I've done the hood with hinges, really easy since the real car is so simple. I have the trunk hinged, with a latch and spring-loaded to stay open. Last night I made the Mustang wing operable as an air brake. So that's where I'm at today after joining this forum.
  3. So a few weeks ago I was getting ready to put my old build up for sale then a paint can can fell on it. This forced me to rebuild the car with the extra mclaren body I had, but I’m not going to sell it. I’m trying to step up my chassis skills with this build as long with the entire detail of the car.
  4. THIS IS A RE-BOOT OF MY OLD THREAD. I first started work on this Galaxie in 2013. The thread for that can be seen here. I hit a problem with the body paint and put the kit back on the shelf… until now! Unfortunately, soon after I put the kit away, Image Shack started charging for their image hosting and all my pictures on that thread were lost! This is why I'm having to re-boot the thread. This kit has always had a special place in my memories. I built a Barris 'Cruisin USA' kit when I was a kid - it was one of my first models I ever build. It came out pretty well (by my standard of the day). I wish I had kept it, but many years down the line I have no idea what happened to that model (but I a few of the parts have turned up in my spare parts box!). I found a more recent re-issue of the Galaxie on eBay. It has been started and is missing the engine. I thought it would be great to do this kit again - only this time, I'd like to think I have a better set of building skills. My intention is to build a 'tough as nails' street machine with modern day 'real-world' upgrades. I'm thinking lowered suspension and monster V8, standard bodywork with simple de-badging and plenty of detail. The first area needing attention is the floor/chassis... Well, that's as much as I can add in one post. There are over 100 more pics chronicling the build right up to the body paint stage - where it all went wrong! I will try to get this thread up to the current stage by posting a batch of images at a time (as I find them). With a little encouragement from everyone out there I hope to rekindle my enthusiasm in this build and finish it off.
  5. Good afternoon all. I recently received a shipment from Custom Squads resin after getting a message from blubaja that they were back in business after a long absence. I have never purchased from them before as I was not into this hobby back then, but I have only heard great things about this company and had seen some of their work in Terry Jessee's books. So I wanted to go ahead and share pictures of some of the items I got. You will have to excuse the quality but they were taken with my phone: First is the Caprice conversion set for the Revell 1994 Impala SS: Up next is one of the center console pieces also specifically designed for the Impala SS. With some adjusting, it should fit into any other vehicle: Then some 1/2-ton wheel covers that Ford used on their trucks/vans from the mid 80's to about the mid 90's: And finally some wheels for medium-duty trucks: Here is their website: http://www.customsquads.com/ They have a multitude of items listed and their service with me was great. I hope some of you find this helpful. Thank you
  6. Something I never thought they made, my dad had one of these in real life back in the late 70s. It was red with a red interior, six and a three on the tree, and poverty hubcaps. I used to drive it around for him. I remember it was LOW, I pretty much towered over the roof (and I'm about 5' 10"). Even with the six it scooted fairly well so to have a 352 in it would have been very scary. I may have to paint this red in tribute to the real one but it will have a v8. More information at the link below. Thanks for looking and enjoy! Pictures of box, box contents, and instructions here
  7. Got some color on the 'bird today, Tamiya TS-60 Pearl green Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed!
  8. Painted Tamiya TS-75 Champagne Gold with TS-65 Pearl clear. Interior will be black. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  9. Another annual review! The thing about these old annuals is, the box tops tend to get boring after awhile!! Have a safe Easter. Pictures of the box, box contents, and instructions here
  10. Another one I just acquired. More pictures of the box, contents and instructions here Thanks for looking
  11. Been wanting one in the collection for awhile. Finally, found one cheap so i got it. SAM_0019 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0020 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0021 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0022 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0023 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0024 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  12. I have a 427 version, but I also wanted the 289 version with the grill and bumpers. It's not a bad kit, but I don't like it in 1/25 scale. It's pretty tiny. SAM_0025 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0026 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0027 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0028 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  13. The "Buy me now" button is sometimes too hard to resist! I got this so I could use the custom pieces on the new AMT 62 Bird, and they work! Super cool eh? Others coming in the next few days are a 62 Ford Galaxie convertible, 64 Ford Thunderbird, 64 Lincoln convertible, and a 65 Thunderbird, all annuals. Then that's it, I've shot my budget for this year. Thanks, enjoy, and stay safe out there !As always, more box pics, contents, and instructions at the link.
  14. Here is another one I just received, the 63 Ford Convertible annual kit. The instructions I got in the kit were bug chewed or something so they were not really photo quality. Lucky I found a set if instructions at the Drastic Plastic Foki site. More pictures of the box contents, box, and a link to the instructions at the link below
  15. Pictures of box, box contents, and instructions here Thank you and enjoy!
  16. This is my dads kit that he has neglected for a while, now me and him are going to finish it. Any bad color choices you can blame on him.
  17. Got this kit at a Hobby Lobby sale. It's an AMT kit. It's not bad at all. Makes for a very nice build. Note that if you put the Continental on the back you will not be able to have the rear plate.

  18. what if ? There's stories of "discussions" between Henry Ford and his engineers with his v8 before he won out with the flathead. But what if he allowed a few of his team to go have fun with his 32 Ford and do what they wanted with a one off? On their own time ... and dime of course... im playing around with rethinking the deuce .. And going gran tourismo
  19. About five years ago, there was a lot of activity in the "What if" thread here (if you haven't gone through it, you should check it out here: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/61461-what-if/). While participating in that thread, I decided to apply some of the body mods to a '67 Ford Galaxie that Chip Foose had done to the '65 Chevy Impala (2015 Ridler winner) that is called The Imposter, below is the resultant PhotoChop: Here is the original for comparison:
  20. Sounds like the 1/25 AMT '63 Ford Galaxie 500 is being reissued in 2020 as kit number 1186. Your guess is as good or better than mine what the box art will look like, so maybe this?
  21. This is my first procharger I built. the motor in this car is really special because it is scratch bulit out of styrene sheets.
  22. Here's my finished version of the Moebius 66 Ford F-100 short bed pickup which is based on the second round test shot. The tooling is about 95% ready to go at this point and final test shots should be available shortly. Colors I used are Rangoon Red over Wimbledon White. Still waiting on the decals which will include some scripts which are missing from my build up. Moebius is shooting for the first release to be before the end of the year, most likely it will be the 66 Flareside version. Look for a display of these kits at the Detroit Show coming up next month. -Steve
  23. I found this 1938 Ford Custom Van from Lindburg a while back...I think at an Ollies. The kit is almost 100% box stock with the exception of the door handles, they came from the spare part box. Took her to the car show...
  24. IMC is a defunct manufacturer, I never heard of them before I saw this in an estate collection. Knew it had to be rare, because I was also not familiar with the GTP J-car, and after reading what little history is online, see that it's the black sheep of GT-40 history. The original owner had broken off the body and chassis parts, and spray painted a pink tinted white, then thankfully put it away. For some weird reason, I had to resurrect and finish this. After stripping with brake fluid, painted the body with flat white paint, then gloss white. The instructions are odd, there are no part numbers, or color references. I had to re-evaluate how to assemble and paint sub assemblies, tack glued together the chassis, so I could take apart to assemble the suspension. I used Alclad, polished aluminum on the chassis, steel for the exhausts, chrome for the inner wheels. Testors magnesium metalizer for the wheel centers, but not rubbed. Best that I could tell, Ford painted the intake plenum gold, but I had to assume the block was blue. Since there is a texture, I assumed the pan had a coating. I need to improve my masking skills, and almost messed up the blue. grrrr I masked the number circle, instead of hoping the decal would work. Lucked out with the decals, they did not fall apart, and stuck with the use of the mild Microsol, but I used Solvaset at the end of the stripes. Since this is a box Stock build, and there is hardly any online reference to dispute inaccuracies, I applied the Shell and IMC decals to. The stripe was also much longer than the rocker panel, so I added to the engine bonnet. I whipped this out in about a week. Next is painting the body clear gloss, , glue on clear parts (lucky the tires did not melt on those parts).
