Scale I Build

Found 61 results

  1. This is the new Revell AAR kit. I bought it with a gift card I got as a bonus from work. I had gotten the old kit when it first cam out, but I bought the wrong paint and did not like the results. This kit is not a bad kit, but it just doesn't look right to me. I like the original kit better. SAM_0047 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0048 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0049 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0050 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr

    GTX

    One of the first car models I ever built was the 1967 GTX. Uncharacteristically of me, I built it as the custom street version. Ever since I have wanted to get another one to build stock. I finally got my chance, as this model was on sale at Hobby Lobby. It's a little different than the one I previously got. I was sad that there were only black stripes, so I had no white stripes to go on my black car. It was also strange it had some of the custom parts, but not the decals or all the modification parts. I made the mistake of using the custom headers as I did not know that the stock were also in the kit, and thought the custom parts were the stock parts. The kit also put together a bit differently than I remember of the old kit. The hood fit isn't that great, but I guess it cam out looking alright. It's a pretty good kit.

  3. I've had this kit sitting in my collection for over a decade now, and thought it's about time I did something with it. I'm starting with the Mr Norm's Revell kit and a photo etch set from MCG. I'm not sure if this will be an exact factory stock build or a very mild custom at this stage. A quick bit of googling and I have some inspiration... I rather like the gold, but we'll see if I can find a good colour match. I've always used automotive spray cans for bodywork, but this time, I'd like to try Zero, Scale Finishes or Tamiya paints. I've never used any of these for a body, so any advice/recommendations would be welcome. First step for me has been to remove the kit hinges and make my own. I do like a precise working hinge on opening panels. I've also reduced the size of the slot in the body where the hinge fits through. According to my reference pic the slot in the kit is too wide. Its still not perfect. I guess the best way to do the hinges in the correct width would have been to make them from brass. This will have to do. Its just a start. I'll post more progress as I go (but I am the world's slowest builder!).
  4. Hi all,,hope alls well for ya during this madness we see around us everyday,,I guess we all get more time to build during this,,the plus side I guess. So,,dug this out a few weeks ago,,Revells Street burner series 70' Superbird. Painted with Testors quikdry rattle can,,,some minor wiring/plumblng,,added a hood scoop{it looked kindof neat when I mocked it up} Hand painted all else. Funny though,,there was no Rdrunner cartoon decal for the side rear wing spars/supports,,maybe a licensing thingee. Anyways,,stay safe,,and enjoy whatever building you do get a chance to do.
  5. Another thread, two nights in a row. Kind of hard to ignore. My build of a '71 Cuda 426. The paint is model master Sublime green. I started and painted this car in January 2018. My first model build with bare metal foil!!! No looking back now. The pictures do not do it justice. The shaker hood scoop needs to be trimmed down. I just painted it and notice it won't let the hood sit flat. What do you think??
  6. I am getting ready to start a 1958 Plymouth kit (The Christine one) and realized this interior is a little more accurate for Plymouth Belvederes of that year. Any idea how one could replicate the interior in the first picture? How would one make the white seat background? How could one recreate the black textured part of the seat? Both are slightly different. Thanks
  7. Hi folks, I did another restoration... This is the 1/24 scale Monogram kit. Bought it some time ago from a modelling mate and it looked like this: The hardest part was getting rid of the white stripe decals that had practically "eaten" into the plastic, even after stripping the paint. I may show some WIP photos of that later on. The paint I used is Testors Plum Crazy to replicate the In Violet Plymouth purple. The first time in decades that I used enamel on a car body and I was quite annoyed by the 72 hours plus dry time so for the next step I used a food dehydrator which helped to save a lot of time and patience. I also did my very first tyre lettering on this kit. By the way, no clear coat on this one, just elbow grease...
  8. Talk about polishing a turd. My dad got me this for Christmas and, if anyone knows me, I like stock vehicles. The Lindberg kit here is not stock. I ordered a Hart's Parts resin hood and got the stripes from eBay. I came out descent, but this kit is a nightmare of issues. The chassis is smaller than the body! I had to apply the glue and hold the body on the chassis for an hour to get it to stay on! The tail lights look horrible, the hood was glued shut because the engine wasn't stock, and I hate that there were no side mirrors. My stripes were also the wrong scale and I had to trim them. The sides are also wrong which caused an issue with the stripes as well. SAM_0447 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0448 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0449 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  9. The very first car model I ever tried to build was a Challenger T/A I got from Hungate's in Independence Mall Wilmington, NC. I always wanted to get another one and do it in Sublime green. I got a few gift cards and decided to use one of them to get this kit. It came out great. The kit is a pleasure to build.

  10. Been wanting one for the collection. Found resin parts from Hart's parts and found some stripes on ebay. Came out alright. The grill is a little warped and the rear end isn't exactly correct, but it does look pretty good for what it is.

  13. Hey ya'll. First time caller, long time listener ha ha. I've been viewing this website now for like, 4 years. Figured it's about time I created an account and posted something. I've learned so much from different members of this group, and I want to say thanks. So here is my current project, 1970 Challenger T/A, pro-touring style, with a 392 Hellcat engine.
  14. AMT's 1/25 scale '71 Plymouth Duster 340, coming in late 2018:
  15. I've noticed some Lindberg Dodge L-700 kits being parted out on eBay; the engine has been referred to as a "361 V8". Is this the same engine as the 361 that was in the early Sixties Mopar passenger cars, and if so, is the IMC unit an accurate representation? I'd like to see if I can use it for the Revell '62 Chrysler Newport. Thanks for your help!
  16. 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.
  17. One of more recent build. I found this kit on eBay for a great price (both rear door panels are missing) but I couldn’t refuse. Its pained model master emeral green metallic spray can with a testors high gloss enamel clear coat spray can. The interior is just flat black and wheels bare metal aluminum spray from Tamiya. Opinions??
  18. Started on this drag team combo of the 80 road runner and 76 dodge dart sport both shot in Panther pink,the 80 will have steel wheels and not sure yet on the 76 ,the 80 will be getting a 440 motor just like the 76 dart will be posting up dates also got a dodge that will be hauling them to in progress shot in panther pink also

  20. Not a bad kit, pleasure to build. Wish I'd have gone with black though. No engine picks, kit was missing some pieces for it.

  21. Couldn't wait for this kit to come out, and when it did I bought one immediately. Been waiting for some time to build it and since I just lost my job I have a lot of new found time on my hands for some builds.

  22. By far my best build & also my proudest build!! My '68 Dodge Charger with a 440 big block. It took me over a month to complete as I submerged myself into the detail of the car. This car truly helped me grow as a builder & I can't wait to see what comes next after this one!!
  23. Hi everybody! Just started some work on a 71 Charger. I managed to sand all the parts and put primer on all the body parts. I also painted the body, hood and chassis with Scalefinishes plum crazy purple. It was the first time I used Scalefinishes product and I'm very happy with it. There is some dust in the paint at the moment, but nothing that can't be sanded out. I'm going to wait a few days before I put some clear on it. I'm building this model for Moson model show in Hungary that will take place in the middle of april and I'm planning to build another kit The pictures are not the best, but you can see something Regards, Andraz
  24. WIP of my entry for this years Cannonball (Aussieball) cbp. Hopefully this is in the right category it's a car but it'll be getting mild 4X4 treatment, if it belongs in the Truck section by all means move it. Anyway like I said it'll be getting mild 4X4 treatment along the lines of the Off road Charger from Furious 7. So the front fenders will be cut and widened a little and the rear fenders will be wide bodied out a little too. Color hasn't been decided on yet, likely flat with some amount of weathering, not going to be show quality in the least. First time cutting fenders completely off, glad it ended well. And I though I had gotten a couple of pics of the work on the rear fenders but I guess not. Will have a few pics of it with primer up later today. Thanks for looking!
  25. G'morn to all,,Just finished the AMT 1994 release of The Dodge Viper,,box stock,except for the rear tires + rims. Great kit ,,went together well. Enjoy all the works posted here @ MCM!!
