Scale I Build

Found 5 results

  1. This is a '66 Malibu SS (Revell Monogram). The body paint is Testors Metallic Black enamel. The interior is Testors Yellow enamel. I used a Molotow Chrome pen on the windows. On the rear chrome I painted with Model Master flat black acrylic, and then used a toothpick to scrape off the raised letters. The lettering on the tires was originally flat white enamel, but I found after 2 weeks that it never dries. I rubbed it off with thinner and repainted with white acrylic. I used flat black acrylic in the radiator and on the engine heads. I put a coating of Future on, but didn't think it was glossy enough, so I kept layering on coatings until it became a big mess. Then I sprayed it down with Windex and ran it under the sink faucet and all the Future rubbed off easily. But not before I accidentally scraped up some of the paint. Two coatings of Future with a Q-tip eliminated almost all the scratches. This model has a poor design for fitting parts together. The side frames for the engine actually interfere with the exhaust pipes. I had a really tough time with that. Also, I had a tough time getting the front to stay on and had to end up using superglue, which unfortunately shows up on the seams. The workbench thread is here.
  2. I've been working on this '66 Malibu SS by Revell Monogram. The painting is mostly done, and I've just started assembly. The kit called for a gloss black exterior and red interior. I'm using a metallic black exterior and yellow interior. The trim is done using Molotow chrome pen.
  3. I just recently took all the vacation, sick time and FMLA in order to come to U of W to have both knees receive a new interior meniscus cartilage tissue from cadaver. No weight for 8 weeks so my dear wife purchased this Level 2, 1970 1/2 Chevy Camaro model to build because she knows her attorney husband will go crazy just watching television or reading books and legal materials! I haven’t put a model together since I was 10 yrs old, so this is a first for me really, but I’m looking for a site that sells 1/18th or larger scale models to build.
  4. Came out Great..
  5. This was created box stock from a 2000 release of a Revell snapper. The color is from testors lacquer line of rattle cans. It lays on too thick and fought me the whole time. It would be nice to get an air bush sometime. Since doing my first vinyl top a few years ago I like doing them now and saw it fit to do it to this car because of deleting the stripes. Comments welcome thank you for looking! Happy Holidays!
