  1. Wanted: MPC '70 Pontiac GTO kit

    Hi folks, I am looking for this MPC kit: https://www.scalemates.com/kits/mpc-ertl-6281-70-pontiac-gto--539746 If anyone of you has one to sell or trade or knows a shop which carries it, please let me know and we could work something out. Keep in mind I live in Germany so things might not be that easy (or cheap) shipping-wise, but I guess where there's a will there's a way... Feedbacks will be appreciated!
  2. Ferrari 288 GTO Spyder

    While waiting for things to dry on my Pagani build, I was thinking about how cool a 288 Roadster would look. Since my special kit No.9 had a screwed-up bonnet vent, I decided to use it as my test model. I discovered that all the kits I've had molded in the red plastic ALL had the same warped bonnet vents, so I decided to try the white plastic kit No.105, since a friend told me his was fine.....so I ordered two white ones, and they were both fine! What I learned here, is that if you don't want to use the PE vents.....which I don't, then you want NOTHING to do with the kits molded in red. Anyway, I will be playing around with this here and there in between builds.
  3. The OG crow

    You probably seen my replica of Justin’s new car, but I recently had a customer put in a order for the old one and I might as well share the progress.
  4. ISO 1970 GTO

  5. 1971 Pontiac GTO Doyusha

  6. GTO headlight

    Is there any catster or aftermarket that is doing the apparent or visual 68 or 69 GTO frontend like this?
  7. '69 Pontiac GTO Judge

    So I recieved this kit in a 6 car deal. Just did inventory and all parts are here. Problem is he painted the hood, body, and bumper yellow. He had a mix of enemal and acrylic paint. How do I go about sanding this down without hurting the parts? I would just prime over it, but some parts are bubbled and has runs in the paint job. Any help would be great.
  8. I always seem to putter away with two projects at once. In this shot, I've started in earnest on the infamous snap-GTO kit and the AMT Christine model, which I'm trying to turn into a plain '58 Belvedere. I used the same color paint for both, but as you can see the molded red of the AMT kit changed things just a bit. I'll try to post updates as I get time, but here's links to my reference (1:1) shots: GTO: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/358036239100312140/ Belvedere: http://www.classycars.org/Plymouth.1958.Belvedere.661.html
  9. My attempt at giving the old Monogram GTO new life. Sorry about the pic quality. Paint is Tamiya,both base and clear. Engine is 604cid Milodon w auto from VCG Resin. Fujimi wing with carbon,hard to see with the bad quality pics. The same carbon is used on the headlight covers/grill. Added chin spoiler from parts box,same with seats,gear linkage and steeringwheel. Wheels are Aoshima. Brakes are Brembo from "Forward Resin" on Ebay. Instruments,clamps etc are detail master. I could not find any decent mirrors i liked,will add later on. Any thoughts are welcome.
  10. 1969 Pontiac fix.

    Hi. This is an old Monogram The Judge GTO i put together maby 20 years ago. I took it apart and soaked it in grill/oven cleaner for the night,then washed it. I sanded off the GTO emblems,took off the rear spoiler and removed the tack on the hood. Then it`s painted with Tamiya gunmetal and two layers of Tamiya clear. Chassis and tub are just primed. Not sure where i will be going with this,but it`s on the kitchen table for foil right now. Here are some pics of progress.
  11. Is there any decals for the 1969 GTO that are not "The Judge" ? Any special editions etc
  12. AMT 72' GTO

    Happy 2014 all,,hope your staying warm in this crazy weather. Heres what Ive been up to recently,,its the AMT 72' GTO,,a decent kit ,,although it had some "issues" as far as fit+ design,,had to modify a few things to get it together. But it turned out ok,,I used different rims+ tires,but other than that,,with some minor wiring/plumbing thats about all I did to it. Fun kit overall,,have fun and stay warm!
  13. Three 2004 Pontiac GTO's

    These are the pre-painted polar lights "snap" kits, i added a little paint on interior and engines and changed the wheels on 2 of them. Each took one afternoon after work to complete, i did these to take a break from my problematic stalled builds. Anyway here they are:
  14. Getting my kit collection going.

    What are your thoughts?
  15. 1969 Pontiac GTO

    Hey this was my first model i had ever built. I built it about 5 years ago when i was 11. I ran out of the purpleish maroonish color and painted the hood and front bumper blue. It sat like that for about a year or two until i found the purple paint again and finished the paint job. These pics dont show it but after it sat for another 6 months or so and i decided, "It can't get any worse.". So i decided to be stupid and try to lower it! lol it didnt work very well and the wheels are cambered out because i didnt take into affect that the body will hit the tire and slant them. Soo it looks real bad not but ill try and go rebuild it one day. Hopefully i post these pics correctly, I havent been on here for a while. Nothin to write home about, (Still a few things left to re-glue.) but i figured id share my first model with you guys! Mike Still a few things left to re-glue.
  16. 1966 Pontiac GTO

    Hey guys, this is my first build of this year. Took me a bit to get back into it. It was my first time using BMF and first time weathering. Let me know what ya'll think!

  18. Ferrari 288 GTO

    Hi everyone, today i will show you one of my European car in my collection. The best Ferrari ever, they built - the 288 GTO. I build it stock in memory of my first build Ferrari ever in the 80's, that never went out of my collection and always remember me to my first steps in modeling. I didn't had the money for laquer of clearcoat *lol*. So i build the same kit this year again. Nice to see, how i build 20 years ago... The only bad thing is, that the right mirror broke before i made the pictures. One thing always happens on the finish lane...but i can handle it. Thanks for your attention, comments or criticism are always welcome
