Scale I Build

Found 108 results

  1. Howdy all,,this is the Revell muscle series 2n1 kit,,I decided to do the race version. And as always I do a different paint scheme than what is normally pictured on box art. Here I was in a "Shelby" N "Shindona" mood when I built this,,hence the blue w/white stripes,,and the spoiler on trunk,,blacked out rear lens area. Air scoops on sides behind doors. Revell did a great job with the motor choices,,interior and everything else,,, looks good,,but I dont understand the design of the rims with the "ribs" going all around the insides making it near impossible to mount the tires on? Really? I always like the traditional 2 pc rims that can be put together 1/2 at a time as I always paint my rims one way or another on most builds. And after painting these I kept the front rims after dremmeling off "The Ribs" on rims for front,,and changed the back rims to traditional Rally 2 pc rims. Used testors quikdry blue,,hand painted the rest, all in all,,I happy with the kit,,I have yet to build the Hemi Cuda Muscle series kit,,fun kits ,,and they look decent when done. We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.
  2. My goal is to build the worst Foxbody I can imagine. I'm starting with AMT's 88 GT kit. I am using a few unused bits from a 90LX that Revell released, I recently built as well. I will be scratching out whatever I need to complete the vision. Enjoy... Went into primer... I am going with a targa roof instead of T-Tops. I was having trouble getting the lower front valance so i cut the whole clip off and worked these pieces together. This is how the real car is built, so I figured nothing would look funny once it's all together. The fog lights have beaten out of their housings and the airdam is far from aerodynamic. This thing will be several colors, so perfection isn't my aim here. Scribed the panel lines, worked the dents into the body with candle heat. I'm giving this hog beast the big cowl hood to clear what I believe to be a stroked, nitrous huffing Chevy motor. This heap will be a fully neglected death trap, complete with improper safety equipment and unsafe components. Peep these bald 4 lug OEM front wheels... Sure it does 11's but the only thing holding it together is a thick coat of grime and rust... I've seen 1 foxbody in my whole life that had a stereo in it. The glovebox latch is broken and the passenger door panel is long gone. Got some color laid out and I am going to keep the patina for now. Focusing on interior, I found a grant style aftermarket wheel that was screaming for a trip back to the 80's. Scratched out a ratchet shifter and some nitrous tanks. Color and Style... With the tall valve covers I believe this to be a stroker setup on a 350 cast. Wired and plumed all the bits as best as I can tell. Manual brakes, no A/C, no power steering, cut the heater lines, so not much needed under the hood... I scratched out the harmonic balancer, alt bracket, serp belt, plug wires, wet shot intake and brake lines. It's running shorty headers, and I had to reverse the oil pan instead of modifying the K member 🤫 But it all tucks in nicely. It's going to have electric fans, but I'm having trouble with the core support fitting properly. Can you spot the coolant leak? This is where I am now. 7 months and counting...
  3. Hi there & happy New Year to you all. Looking for some oddball items. Have some '69 Camaro stuff '66 Fairlane & other stuff kicking to trade. AMT 1/43(!) '69 Fastback ft. bumper/grill & rr. bumper '90 LX police parts (computer, radio, light bar etc.) & hood Any MPC early 80's Mustang chassis and suspension parts Finally I think I think I've seen an early 80's notchback in resin. (Like 82-86) Does this actually exist? Thanks for the help.
  4. Here’s my first for 2021, a ‘79 Mustang Turbo Hatch. It’s from MPC’s first issue of the Fox Body, the Mustang Turbo Cobra kit. It took several attempts to score this kit from eBay... and I spent way too much for it ? but I am ecstatic to have an early Fox Body in my collection! The fit and detail on this kit is really nice, with only some minor trimming to get the body to mate the chassis properly. Unfortunately, the original Cobra decals were in poor condition so I just built it as the regular Turbo trim. It’s painted Tamiya X-7 red with XF-55 deck tan for the interior, and two coats of Future on the body. I’m very pleased with this one, hopefully I did this rare kit some justice!
  5. Here are my two builds from the beginning and end of the long running third generation Mustang Fox Body. MPC’s 1979 Mustang Turbo Hatchback and Monogram’s 1992 Mustang GT Convertible. Enjoy!
  6. I loved the kit and thought about buying another one to make a Mach 1. After all, I remembered the kit having the scoops in it. Well I started to cut out the holes to put the scoops in when I noticed; the scoops are from the GT-500 kit, not the Mach 1! So, now I have a red 302 and a yellow. Couldn't find my decal setting solution, so I was kinda angry I couldn't get the hood right.

  7. Here is my Monogram “1992” Mustang GT Convertible. I built this kit as a color scheme tribute to my 1:1 Mustang, a 1993 2.3 LX. My original idea was to kit bash this GT with an SVO or ‘83 GLX to create an LX ‘vert but all three of these kits are expensive on eBay today and I just don’t have the skills or stomach yet to cut up two $40-$60+ kits ?. So I settled for my car, but as a GT! I used Swarovski Crystals (meant for ladies’ custom nails) from Hobby Lobby to simulate the headlight and turn signal bulbs. And I used the actual belt line stripe tape left over from my 1:1, cut down for the 1:24 belt line stripe. To do those blasted cheese grater taillights, I painted them all white first, then used silver and red gel pens to color the lens sections. It’s a little sloppy but looks good enough. I messed up the clear coat on the hood too so I’ll have to repaint it at some point but it’s not that noticeable in these iPhone pictures ?. You’ll notice that the parade boot is grey when it probably should be white or blue. But my 1:1 came with a grey boot so I painted this to match! The previous owner also shaved the trunk luggage rack so I did the same here. I’m very pleased with this one and can’t wait for a nice day to photograph both cars together!
  8. This is likely going to be an extended build but thought it would be fun to share the progress (or no progress as it may be) here with others. The goal is to build up a 1/25 scale of my actual 1969 Mustang Coupe that I've had since 1974. I finally have the car back on the road after way too long although it still needs details completed. I really should be working on the real one instead of this but I hope this will rebuild my motivation for the big car. I've messed with cutting up a kit to get the coupe roof line long ago but was never happy with what I could accomplish. Having run across the resin Grande coupe body some time ago I knew that was what I needed BUT the prices were over $100 on every auction and that was too much for me. Recently I received an alert from my ebay notices that there was a "69 Mustang Resin" for sale but figured it was another one of the decorations or 1/43 scale version. I checked it out anyhow and it had a very reasonable buy it now so I clicked it without any second thoughts. This is the resin kit pieces although I may use the CJ hood with the hole is the standard scoop will cover it. In any manner I want the air filter just peaking through the hood under the scoop like the real car does. Engine wise I want to match the 347 that I've built for the car as well which generally will not be a problem except for maybe the shorty Cobra filter that I've never seen anywhere else. The rest is pretty easy as the Cobra T pan is out there and covers and I found an intake that closely matches the old F4B I've kept on the car. I put a Mcleod scatter shield and TKO 3550 in the car and have found a close trans out of an early 90's Mustang kit. In fact, I bought the Mustang Cobra Combo kit to get not only the 1969 base parts but the rack and pinion to fit the rack I used in the real car and the fox body seats that I used as well. The Fox Cobra is 1/24 though so I may have to do some fitting on the seats as they already seem over sized. I plan on painting up / detailing the engine as close as I can to my actual build as well as the electric fuel pump setup, slapper traction bars, etc. I'm still debating on opening up the doors and trunk. It's a lot of work and sometimes doesn't actually add any value but then again I do not plan on building another one of these. One of the first things I had to do was remove the molded in battery from under the hood as mine is in the trunk. I'm thinking I'll rebuild the shock towers as well as the kit looks more like the Boss 429 laid back towers than my stock ones. The front suspension detail is so lacking on this kit as well so I may build up some custom shocks/springs and upper arms. I'm pretty familiar with the 1969 Mustang having put a passenger side shock tower and battery tray panel in the real car so I know how it should look :-) The other thing I have to do is remove the molded in power steering linkage as I'll be using a rack like the real car has. Little detail but I figure what the heck, I want to do this as close to the 1:1 that I can. Cool thing is I can always walk out to the garage and take pics, measurements, etc if I need to in order to validate the end results! Stephen
  9. Wanted to get back into building cars again so I opened up the easiest one I have in inventory. A metal pre-painted Testors 1971 Boss 351 Mustang in my favorite color combo Blue and Silver. I started to do some research to find out how to detail it appropriately and learned that is NOT a '71 but a '73 with only a '71 grille. I plan on changing the interior to factory white/black. Follow along if you are interested.
  10. 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.
  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. 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!
  13. I'm looking for some resin copies of the CJ hood scoop found in the Revell 1968 & 70 CJ Mustang kits. Thx Ron
  14. 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/
  15. This is my first procharger I built. the motor in this car is really special because it is scratch bulit out of styrene sheets.
  16. 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.
  17. 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!
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Almost complete on this. Still needs some chassis and engine compartment detailing.
  21. 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.............
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
