Scale I Build

  1. For those of you who have "lost" the list of "which engines come in which kits" that FORCE had restructured into a "usable" format, it can be found on the 13th page of this category, have tried to just add a comment to it and bring it back into the active topics, but...…. DJ
  2. This White Western Star morphed from an east coaster to a west coaster. In the process, the chassis was lengthened, as was the sleeper, & it got dual exhaust among some other goodies. The paint is a nice tasty cinnamon & chocolate.
  3. Hi Guys I am a brazilian modeler and new in the car modeling universe. I´d like to build the 1979 Ford Bronco as seen in the 240 Robert TV show. I am using the 1/24 Monogram ´80 Ford Bronco 2 ´n 1 model kit but the tires and wheels are not accurate. Could you please tell me where to get the correct set? Many Thanks in advance
  4. Does anyone know the Fruehauf & Wilson model numbers for these AMT trailers? Just for general curiosity. Thanks
  5. Country Road Diorama. More coming soon.
  6. Here is a very good site for truck kit instructions, box art and a lot more useful stuff. https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/truckkit_instructions/ https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/ This could maybe be pinned on top of the first page so it's easy to find.
  7. These lovely 1:24 or 1:25 scale fire trucks are part of the collection of a small fire-fighting museum in Brockton, Massachusetts. My notes credit Dave Frazer as their builder. There are also a few examples of horse-drawn apparatus among the collection that I believe were built or modified from a particular range of mixed-media "craftsman kits" produced here in Mass. in the late '40s / early '50s era. Two pages worth of pictures of the models in my album: I wish their website was more informative: https://www.brocktonhistoricalsociety.org/bhs/firemus.html
  8. I had several kits and projects going a few months ago, then took a leave of absence to remodel my house. I never liked the yellow wheels or the graphics on this model, so my first mods were to change that. I removed all of the graphics and painted the wheels black. I'll make new water slide decals for the finished wrecker. I saw another wrecker on eBay pretty cheap, and a 1:24 resin dump body and thought it would be cool to make a 1953 dump truck. Last night I got the first wrecker disassembled, and that was no easy task! Getting this all put back together will be a challenge to say the least.
  9. Hey guys, I just wanted to share another build I completed a few weeks ago for a customer
  10. Thinking about getting another 66 Suburban to do as a 4x4. Wondering where to find suspension parts to do this. Does anyone do a resin conversion for this kit, or is there a kit that would work. I don't want a drastic lift like the MPC Deserter pickup, but more of a stock 4x4 height.
  11. My third diorama begins. The theme is around whiskey. I decided to build a section of an older building with an arch as the entrance to the club. There will be a section of some sort of water body on the right.
  12. Hello everyone. I’m new to scale modeling and this is my first diorama ever. I have been experimenting with preserved sheer moss, which I have used as grass. Please, feel free to critique and give some input. It’s still a work in progress as I’m waiting for some materials to arrive. I will repost with updates as I add more details.
  13. I started on a replica for a customer of his truck, I really wish i had another kit I could back half and do it up
  14. I want to make a model of my son's 1:1 1981 Chevy truck he inherited from my dad. I've got the body itself sorted out, including scratch building the camper shell, but I need to figure out the grille. I did a Google search and found a picture of a model with the correct grille. The grille looks like it is resin. I'm looking for that EXACT grille.
  15. I'm looking to make a scaled model of GMC's big block 305 V6 engine and I can't find any specs or actual dimensions or drawings of the engine. If someone already has it modeled in CAD let me know since I want to model the engine in Solidworks to make a GMC version of Revell's Suburban kit and 3D print everything. I just want to have the correct specs to model it properly. If you have the actual engine and you measured it or you know someone with the dimensions of the engine or if you somehow have GMC original blueprints of the engine that would be great.. I won't ask questions lol. I know about the gmcguy6066 website but I couldn't find any drawings with dimensions.
  16. One of my Better looking trucks. Came out real nice. Very good kit. 1 (92) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (94) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (97) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (99) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (100) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (101) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2199 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2200 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  17. http://www.autoworldstore.com/product_p/amt1046.htm It's a 'Future Release' and 'Pre-order' deal at Autoworld. My comments are: I owned a White/GMC Road Boss II for a brief moment. Detroit 8V92 Road Ranger transmission. Turbocharger over Suipercharger(the big one). Those are the engines you let off the throttle and they make a rapid 'Rap-Rap-Rap'. That's because they are two stroke engines. This is a neat kit. From the old days.
  18. This is my version of the ATM White Freightliner. I wanted to make a very tired and weathered truck and liked the look of the dual drive day cab. I used the salt method with a base of brown under the green and then added some more weathering with acrylics. The cab was very fiddly to put together, but other than that, I found it went together well. I shortened the stacks a bit and add some air hoses. I'm pretty happy with it and felt I didn't rush it with my second model kit since I was a teenager (I always got frustrated with models when I was young). Thanks for looking!
  19. My favorite truck in my collection. SAM_2347 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2349 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2350 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2351 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2352 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2353 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2354 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  20. I was going thru my build ups that have been packed away and I found this... Old prescription bottles make great wheel tubs. My brother told me about this years ago. Stay tuned...
  21. I felt dirty after getting the Ford Bronco kit. I've always been a GM guy. So, I went out and picked this kit up. I made it to look like the truck I would love to own.
  22. Here's my 1994 Snake Bite Monster Truck. I started this when I was a kid over 20 years ago. I stopped after I glued up the engine, and after some of the body was painted. I decided to finish the kit for a model contest. Sadly, Snake Bite didn't win, but it took 3 months to build and detail it. I built it with the body able to come off. So I can remove the hood/cab or just the box. The hood has all the scales/ridges outlined black to show thru the transparent red paint.I also switched out the metal axles since they were short and couldn't hold the weight of the tires. I used a coat hanger and that works just right to support the tires weight and is now long enough to work. I ended using the one of the axles on my Graffiti coupe since the plastic bars couldn't fit since they were too short over the motor. I filled in the gap for the grill with a cut piece of the spare hood for the Graffiti coupe. This is probably going to be my last monster truck since I forgot how much I hate kits with frames. Monster trucks now fail in the pain in the kits to build with dragsters, and NASCAR cars. .
  23. This here is a model my Dad had been tinkering with every now and then for the past few years. His hands hurt a little to much to enjoy building and he's very busy with work and life type stuff so he offered to me last week to either part out or scrap all together. Naturally I'm doing neither, instead I'm going to tear it down and re-build/restore it for him as a late Father's Day present. Going in a Overhaulin' style with it, he knows it's happening but won't really get to see it until it's finished. I'll be taking a few idea's he's thrown around for his 1:1 Suburban and add few of my own in as well. The end result will be something along the lines of a Overhaulin'/ Fast & Furious/ resto-mod type'ish (lots of "ish" in there) custom truck. Some of the idea's are as follows. The one big thing he'd like to see is the bare metal finish that's becoming quite popular. Got a plan that proved to be very promising. But I'm open to hearing ideas too, backup plans are always good to have. It's going bumper less. Among some of the ideas he's tossed around for his 1:1 removing the bumpers has been something he mentions often so I'll be applying that to this build. Changing the tail light set up in the back. Not going with the usual Corvette treatment, instead I'll go with a tail light design he's very found of and that's the '67 GTO's quad light. Big horsepower, naturally. Swapping the Standard 283 small block with the 396 big block out of the '67 Pro-street Chevelle. Tossing a supercharger on it to for good measure. Custom grill and a few other ideas that I'm still working out. I was initially hoping to have it done before Father's Day but 7 days in and I'm still doing body work. There's a ton more to be done after that and as nice as it would be I'm not going to rush it, I want to do it right and to the very best of my ability. Picture time. Starting point: Believe it or not that color is that $1.29 bottle paint in Wal-Marts craft section, brushed on even. That stuff's not half bad. Rims will also be getting stripped due to the paint and scratches on them. After stripping. Removed the grill mounts to make room for the custom grill. Removed the gas cap and side trim for a smooth body. Will also be bodying in the door handles as the handles themselves are missing. Lower plate for the back with the GTO style lights. And after the first round of body work, starting on the second round. Thanks for looking, more to come.
