Scale I Build

Found 100 results

  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. Finally finished the Monogram 1966 Shelby GT350. This one fought me pretty good, the closer I got to finishing it, the more it fought me. I was also fighting some motivational issues, I even put it away to work on my GSX that I posted a few weeks ago. The color is Tamiya TS-51 Racing Blue over Testors One Coat Diamond Dust, and the interior is done in an Apple Barrel craft paint mixture of Gloss and Flat Black. I added ignition wires and used BMF for the window trim. I also used a spare pair of bigger tires for the rear because I felt that the kit tires looked too skinny back there. The next four builds I have planned are going to be NASCAR cars, and I hope to have those done by May so I can get going on some street cars again. Thanks for looking!
  4. I'm looking for some resin copies of the CJ hood scoop found in the Revell 1968 & 70 CJ Mustang kits. Thx Ron
  5. Was getting ready to start a conversion to build a '70 Ford Mustang Quarter Horse and was curious if anyone else has attempted this? I know I need the dash from a Mercury Cougar and the front clip from the '70 Shelby GT500 and the back end from the '70 Boss or Mach 1 kits. Probably going to use the Monogram kits since they are pretty common. I'm not sure if I should take the front clip and graft it to the Boss body or the rear tail piece from the Boss and graft it to the back end of the GT500. Linky to what I'm trying to create. https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2011/06/29/the-quarter-horse-fords-stillborn-bitsa-mustang/
  6. This is my first procharger I built. the motor in this car is really special because it is scratch bulit out of styrene sheets.
  7. Below are some slot car bodies I made for a friend. He had a pretty good stash so we worked out a deal where I got a kit of MY choosing and he would select a kit for the body. I would detail out the body for him and get to keep all the rest of the kit for parts. The silver Super Bee turned out really nice. Note: the wheels shown were only for mock up pics.
  8. This one is done in Model Master Citrus Yellow Metallic over Testors One Coat Lacquer Diamond Dust, and cleared with Model Master Gloss Clear. Some of the extras include ignition wires, vacuum advance line, valve stems and white letters on the tires from Fireball Modelworks. I initially wasn't going to put the spoiler or louvers on, but went ahead and put them on "temporarily" with some clear elmer's glue. The interior is a custom mixture and is done in craft paints. I printed my own gauges for the dash, but my printer wasn't up to the challenge for doing the black background and they came out with a green tint. At least they go with the green theme of the car, LOL. They actually look like they are illuminated at night, so I'll go with that. The chassis was sprayed with craft paint also, as was the "overspray", although I don't think I put enough on. Even though the interior lacks detail and I would like to see some more suspension parts, I really like this kit. I did three of them in my younger days that I don't still have, and will probably add more to my current collection. Thanks for looking!
  9. While the Charger is swimming in the pond, I thought I'd start another project. First pic is the underside of the chassis with the subframe connectors. Second is plug wire detail. Third is engine in color and my grubby mitt.
  10. This model was built mostly box stock. The color is a really pretty Jade Metallic green from Testors long ago. The wheels are Minilites as used on vintage Trans Am racers. The side stripes are silver water slides from Keith Marks. This model spent a couple of years in pieces after our cat knocked it off of a high shelf. Fortunately nothing was lost because I keep everything in a zip-lock baggie. And for your really attentive people, yes I know the spoiler is on backwards. I did that on purpose because I think the "right" way just looks wrong.
  11. Almost complete on this. Still needs some chassis and engine compartment detailing.
  12. My first new vehicle (I was 45) was a 1989 Ford Mustang LX 5.0. It was my mid life crazy car, only taken out on good days, etc. I did all the usual upgrades popular at that time, and it was a lot of fun. So I wanted to build one just like it and got the Revell 5.0 drag race version - number 85-4195. It has the stock parts, and I am building it as such. The problem is, while it includes the stock parts, there is no mention of them in the instructions. Of course most of them are intuitive, but the underpinnings (i.e. suspension, steering) are a bit confusing. I understand that this is a sister kit of the Revell Police Intercepter Mustang, which does give instructions that would be useful to me. I tried Revell's website, Ebay, Google and Youtube to get the instructions, but to no avail. So my question is........how can I obtain a copy of those instructions? Your help would be greatly appreciated! Bill Retired guy in Spring Texas.............
  13. When you love something you don't leave it. Well when you build you build a model you like, you build it again and again and that is what this project is about. I have done this one about 5 times. I did the motorcraft 3 times, the folgers twice. 3 I sold and two end up in a part box. But I wanted to start having a build collection. I have many but in boxes still and when I get a deal I buy them. Love the wheels and other parts for other racing projects. But I wanted to build it for me so I started to do more reserch on the car I found great references and now with more paciens and experience on the kit I decided to go for it.
  14. My latest completion. A Revell SCCA MUSTANG. I think it raced back in 91 or so in the Trans Am Series. I added some extra details not included in the kit. Also corrected the front clip, attaching the front spoiler to the chasie and covering the scribe lines from the hood lines. the race car does not have that. the seat belts and net and toe loops are scratch built, the kits decals were ruined so I got a new set from indycals.
  15. Shambles

    SVO Mustang

    Ain't sure about the year, but this was one of many Mustang models I built. Some kinda kick-ass turbo 4 cylinder.
  16. I wonder if the tooling still exists for the ol' Monogram 1/32 scale Datsun Pickup ? How about the others ? 1955 Chevy , 1979 Mustang , etc. , etc. ? These would be fantastic slump-busters !
  17. Another Norm Beechey car. This was the first ever Ford Mustang in the world to win a touring car race. The AMT Mustang kit was built pretty much out of the box. The plain steel wheels were detailed and tyres taken from my parts box. Decals are Patto's Place and paint is rattle can. The rear of the grille was sanded down and replaced with a fine mesh. The piece under the front bumper represents an oil cooler and the stance mirrors the real car. The window glass was replaced with clear acetate all round.
  18. AMT 1994 Ford Mustang GT built pretty much OOB but swapped the wheels out for Fujimi aftermarket units along with meaty disc brakes behind. Body badges cast separately using silicon molds and liquid styrene, then painted silver. Side scoops and bonnet vents opened up. Rattle can yellow exterior and black interior.
  19. Good morning all, I finally was able to get back to the bench after a long absence do to shoulder surgery and I jumped in with the new Boss 302 kit from Revell I did like this kit and thought it went together well I started by adding the basic plug wires and heater hoses but didn't go to extreme on details as I really was using only 1 arm then at the advise of my Brother inlaw I went with a Calypso Coral paint scheme i am happy with the way it turned out please enjoy and any comments or critiques are always welcome Thank you
  20. MPC Mustang FC 72 (HOTROD MAGAZINE) this was my 1st detailed build & contest entree. I installed every aftermarket plumbing, Aluminum Billet pulleys, A/N color coded fittings, Wrinkle Wall Slicks, even added the Chrome Valve Stems on it...for a EXTREMELY SIMPLE "BOX STOCK" build that would only take most beginners a few days to complete, took me about 350+ hours...(and I still wished I had 25-30 more to do everything that was in my head.. I had nothing but FUN all the way through.....
  21. Hi folks, I finished this kit recently. As we all know, unfortunately there is only a Revell snap-kit for this 6th generation of the Pony. That kit isn't bad at all as a snapper and it sure has a nice body shape, but of course, it lacks a lot of details. That's why I put some work into it as follows: - lowered the body - added 19" rims + tyres - added brake discs from the spare parts bin - added windscreen wipers from the spare parts bin - added interior mirror from the spare parts bin - added exterior mirrors from the Shelby GT 500 kit - drilled the exhaust area open and added metal ferrules - added selfmade headlight printouts in tinted look in order to replace the horrible kit's parts I used Tamiya TS-101 primer to cover the kit's red plastic. I then painted the body using Tamiya dark metaillic Blue TS-53, cleared with Testors Wet Look. 'Nuff said, hope you like it: On the left hand side, you can see the "basic product", built by my son in 15 minutes. It took me 15 days to get my own done...
  22. Hey, everyone!, I just wanted to show you the shifter I made for a friend. It was a fun project - in itself...a model all its own...Hope you like, thanks for looking!!
  23. When I found out that this model was coming out I almost cried. If it wasn't for the 1969 Mustang I would never have become a car guy and would never have gotten into model car building. By chance, one Sunday while getting ready for church, I passed a show on SPEED TV called the American Muscle Car and the 1969 Mustang was the subject of the show. They made the car sound like the greatest thing ever built and I became hooked on cars from that day forward. I watched the show every week, absorbing as much knowledge as I could. The color is Blue Angels Yellow. I had two issues with an otherwise excellent kit. The hood did not fit right, and the stripes for the hood got messed up, so i have to order new ones. Haven't had a chance to put on the clear coat yet. SAM_0450 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0451 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  24. My favorite 4 eye. Color is Ford mineral grey. Updated the engine with and 87 Thunderbird turbo coupe, and added front intercooler
