Scale I Build

Found 215 results

  1. One that I picked up today, 1963 Mercury Marauder annual kit, set the way back machine to 1963! More box pictures, box contents, and instructions at this link: AMT 1963 Mercury Marauder Annual
  2. I found out that the interior and frame from the AMT 66 Mercury will fit, so I don't have to try and clean up the old stuff. I think the color will be a turquoise, kind of like the drawing on the box cover. The first pictures were taken right after it came out of the purple pond, cleaned up really well. I noticed some body damage on the drivers side I'll have to fix. The next few pictures are with the new parts taped on. I was able to remove all the old pieces except for the hood scoop, I'll just have to live with the one that is on there. New front pan and grill section New chrome roof bar and rear window extension. The skirts are from the AMT 64 Mercury Marauder kit while the wire wheels are from the 65 Lincoln convertible kit. I don't like how it looks without the skirts. Thanks for looking!
  3. I was going to wait a bit before I started this but, the urge was too strong!. Here it is with the beginning coats of Tamiya TS-19 Metallic Blue. Engine is almost done. And the stock wheel covers are done. Now, believe it or not, I also scored a 65 Merc with the custom pieces on it. My plan is to redo the custom with the newer custom pieces from the kit I just got. Here are some pics the seller posted on evil bay. Thanks for looking!
  4. I got this one two days ago, surprising that except for the hardtop body, the kits contents are the same as the recently released convertible version, which will help on the building of this kit since the chrome trees are on the satin chrome side of things. Pics of contents, box art, and instructions at this link
  5. AMT's 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne Pickup. I used to own a 1969, standard model without the fancy interior and extra side trim, it was sold in Safford, AZ and still had the Protecto plate in the Owner's Manual, bought from a friend whose grandpa was the original owner, made an agreement to sell back when he had the money, but he died, nephew contacted me to buy it back. It worked on a ranch, so it had the strange back bumper, it had been repainted after the front right corner was wrecked, I removed the saddle tanks, plastic bed liner, and chromed bed edge protectors, so off the bat it's not really an accurate replica. I took other liberties, some things if I fixed it up sort of things, and not doing the air-conditioning parts. WIP: AMT - 1969 Chevrolet pickup: The Green Barge I made several pieces such as the the taillight section, tailgate, bench seat, door panels, toolbox, etc that I could sell resin copies of. Fireball Modelworks resin slotted mag wheels, with tires from the Italeri Ferrari 275. Splash paint. The real truck, first day I drove it: Day I sold it: My studio, 1968 pickup. Someday will build that.
  6. I owned this 1969 Chevrolet C-10, got from a friend who needed the money, died last year, nephew bought it because it was sold new in Safford (still had the service plate with the manual) to a relative. It grew on me, found out why they are very coveted, much like the model kits! 😳 I nicknamed it The Green Barge because a friend owned a nice motorcycle named The Green Monster. Currently own a 1968 C-10, so can use for reference (which is the same blue this model was painted). Going to build for a future diorama idea, so not going to scratch-build an accurate chassis, but will grind off the left exhaust to replicate this truck (I wanted to put on twice pipes). Bought off Facebook Marketplace, it was built half decent, seller had stripped the body, I'm stripping and rebuilding the rest. The plan is to improve some things, and modify to resemble the trim specifications. The interior is going to be a major scratch-build: cut out the bucket seats and make a bench seat from Corian, dash will get gauges behind 'glass' (minus little auxiliary ones), add shift lever and turn signal, pedals, door panels were steel with simple arm rest. Exterior will have the upper trim removed, the raised wood grain needs to be removed from the lower trim, tailgate will be a major change, drill stakebed holes, modify the front bumper, sidelights need to be basic, and fix the horrible taillights. Scratch-build: the license plates, rear bumper, mirrors, toolbox, steps, driving lights (which came off my MINI). Aftermarket details: gauge faces, slotted mags, and the big deal item is the '69 grill! I took reference pictures with the tape measure in the picture when I sold it, will post them as I get to those parts. Start off with these photos to give an idea. Hauling flagstone: Hauling mountain bike: Replaced the perfectly bumper that I snagged on the fence post: Day that I said goodbye: Most of the parts, instructions with notes: The rest of the parts: Cleaning up parts of mold lines, and starting assembly. Puttying the massive ejection pin marks. Going to order Splash paint per paint chart, 503. The original owner had it repainted, including the interior! When I replaced the left headlight, discovered why. 🤨
  7. Hey, everyone!, I recently had an old friend move here from Santa Cruz, California. We use to build together over a decade ago, and now he wants to start it up again! I asked him which car he wanted to build, and he chose AMT's 1970 Baldwin Motion Camaro, so that's what we're doing. I mostly build exotics, but I do have a TON of muscle car kits, this however, will be my very first GM build.....i'm pretty stoked!! The 1970 Camaro is my favorite year for that car, in fact, 1970 was the BEST year for muscle cars from ALL the manufacturers! If you are familiar with how I build, this will come as no surprise....its almost imposable for me to NOT change things. This is no exception, lol. He will build his in a more traditional Hot rod way, which I will also post here as we go. Heres a riddle for mine; what do you get when mix the following cars, and styles together?...
  8. Just got this one Box contents and instruction pictures at the link: http://carmodelingcorner.com/KitReviews/AMT_1965_Mercury_Parklane.htm
  9. THIS IS A RE-BOOT OF MY OLD THREAD. I first started work on this Galaxie in 2013. The thread for that can be seen here. I hit a problem with the body paint and put the kit back on the shelf… until now! Unfortunately, soon after I put the kit away, Image Shack started charging for their image hosting and all my pictures on that thread were lost! This is why I'm having to re-boot the thread. This kit has always had a special place in my memories. I built a Barris 'Cruisin USA' kit when I was a kid - it was one of my first models I ever build. It came out pretty well (by my standard of the day). I wish I had kept it, but many years down the line I have no idea what happened to that model (but I a few of the parts have turned up in my spare parts box!). I found a more recent re-issue of the Galaxie on eBay. It has been started and is missing the engine. I thought it would be great to do this kit again - only this time, I'd like to think I have a better set of building skills. My intention is to build a 'tough as nails' street machine with modern day 'real-world' upgrades. I'm thinking lowered suspension and monster V8, standard bodywork with simple de-badging and plenty of detail. The first area needing attention is the floor/chassis... Well, that's as much as I can add in one post. There are over 100 more pics chronicling the build right up to the body paint stage - where it all went wrong! I will try to get this thread up to the current stage by posting a batch of images at a time (as I find them). With a little encouragement from everyone out there I hope to rekindle my enthusiasm in this build and finish it off.
  10. does anyone know when the original amt modified stockers series,,,64 ford, 66 skylark, 65 olds 88, etc, hit the stores back in the day. I built 3 of the original issues in late 1977, but found some of them hard to find in most stores around here back then. also, does anybody remember if all 9 came out at once, or were they issued 2 or 3 at a time. I am building the 64 ford re issue at present and have always had a soft spot for them,,,just thought I would ask. thanks, a.c.
  11. Started on this build last week and have been making progress slowly but surely. I am building the coupe version from the Retro Deluxe release from a few years ago. Needless to say it has been a time consuming build due to the amount of flash I've had to deal with. The front end has about a half hour or more in cleaning the flash and removing the huge parting lines from the fenders. I also have several hours in removing flash, parting lines and ejector marks from the rest of the parts. The easiest task in the build process was stripping the chrome! Color will be either Testors Star Spangled Blue or their Icy Blue over Testors Diamond Dust Silver. The interior will be Testors metal flake blue. The body and all other parts will be primed using white and gray Tamiya primers..
  12. I was given several boxes of parts years ago and am trying to see what kits they are for. I am assuming these were from an AMT Funny Car kit from ?. I don't have a need for them and if none of my friends need them I'll be posting them in the trade thread. Thanks
  13. Thinning out the spare parts boxes. 2 sets (8 pieces) of wheel covers and 8 wheel inner rings from the AMT 70 impala kit. Outer edges may need some touchup of the chrome. Trade for 2 sets of the wheel covers from the AMT Retro edition 53 Ford pickup Prefer US trades only to keep shipping costs reasonable.
  14. Looks like i found another old project that needs to get done. It will be a full detail build with parts from a Revell 66 GTO.
  15. Started working on an AMT 53 Ford Pickup about a week ago, have seen a lot of nice builds and always wanted to get one going. Doing all the basics right now, soaked the body and main parts in some dawn and water, scrubbed the stuff down, scribed out the doors, vent and windshield. Removed the door handles, locks and filling in the gas filling area. Also smoothed out the running boards, have them glazed with some Evercoat at the moment. Looking at the chassis and stance at the moment, started assembling the engine. My goal is build a nice 60's style cruiser out of this. I've also been posting a bit more on my Instagram, if anyone is there feel free to drop in at qstick99
  16. Just got the new release of the AMT 63 Impala yesterday. The body does not look too bad. There seems to be a little gap at the leading edge of the hood, I think the radiator support is a bit too wide, should be an easy fix. Tail lights are molded in, but should not be too hard to detail now a days. Engine is a bit of a mis-mash. The block, heads, fan, fan belts, alternator, the two carburetors, and distributor are from the AMT 64 Impala kit. The intake and exhaust manifolds, valve covers, and air cleaner are from the AMT 62 Bel Air kit. I'll be using the kit supplied frame on this build. More later!
  17. Started in 2008, finally got it on the shelf. Painted Testors' Root Beer.
  18. Hey, everyone!, heres another build i started three years ago.....time to work on it again.
  19. Well, it took me about 16 years to get this one done, but here it is. AMT 65 Pontiac 2+2 with the custom nose, tail, and interior from the AMT 65 Bonneville. I picked the 2+2 body because it had less stuff to sand off. I quickly found out the Bonneville custom body parts were not a straight swap onto this body. But with patience and lots of putty, I got them to fit. Painted Testors' Da Ja blue with wet look clear. Wheels are Pegasus low rider wheels while the tires are from the latest version of the AMT GP kit. Blower setup is from the AMT Pontiac GP kit while the custom seats, dash, and center console are from the Bonneville kit. Thanks for looking and all comment are welcomed.
  20. I spotted this in the new truck kits thread and zoomed in; take a close look: Sorry if this has been mentioned before. There certainly could be some interesting decal possibilities for new issues.
  21. This was include in a purchase I made of some original AMT 32 Ford boxes, decals and instructions. It is approximately 4 X 6 1/2 Anyone ever see this type of card in any of the other early Trophy kits such as the 25 T, 32 roadsters , 40 Fords or early annual kits. In all my searches on that auction sight for AMT 32 and 40 Fords kits,decals or parts , none of these ever showed up in any pictures or descriptions of what was up for auction, not even in the background. There are more pics of the boxes and contents on page 772 on the "What Did You Get Today" thread.
  22. Hi all, I am making my first attempt at sharing pics of one of my builds. It was done quite awhile ago. I hope you guys like it.
  23. KNIt's the 30th Anniversary of the '89 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am 20th Anniversary TTA. I got model last Saturday and once I got home and looked up close. It was missing the front glass, I should have looked more when I was buying it. Or I could have bought it 2 years ago when I saw it for the same price , sealed 2 years ago. Anyway, I got a donor glass from my stash. The MPC Knight Rider has an extra clear glass tree. Ending 2019 with a F body build!
  24. The next one was supposed to be the new (a few years ago at least) Super Shaker 64. But I had trouble with the paint so I found this old body as a stand in. Painted with Testors' Classic White. You are seeing the tire/wheel combo I'm using for it. I took the 327 from the 65 Chevelle wagon kit and turned it into a 283 (by swapping out the valve covers for ones that say 'Chevrolet"). More later....
  25. While digging through my 62 parts boxes looking for something, I discovered that I had enough parts to build another 62 Bel Air. The first one I built was way back in 2011. I thought about it for while and decided I wanted to build a small block car, namely a 283. Something that the vast majority probably bought new in 62. I sourced some white wall tires from the last release of the AMT 53 Studebaker and found a set of steel rims from the AMT 59 El Camino kit that fit the tires better than the steelies that came in the 62 Bel Air kit. I'll use the poverty caps from one of my Revell 62 kits on this. I just happened to have a 283 engine/trans from the AMT new tool 57 sitting on my bench, I sourced a 2bbl intake from an AMT 55 Cameo pickup kit, valve covers, water pump/timing chain cover, exhaust manifolds, and the starter from Revell old tool 57 Bel Air kit. I'm using the air cleaner from a Revell 65 pickup kit. Then, what to paint it? I wanted something to go along with my current 62 to 64 Impala builds, so nothing to crazy. I settled on Tamiya Mica Silver, not quite the silver that Chevys came in in 1962 but close enough for me for this build. Besides, I would have to order some silver leaf and I feared I'd lose momentum if I stopped to order paint. For my Revell 62 Builds I had bought some Model Car Garage phot-etch because the Impala SS kit did not have any SS badges for it while the PE set did. The PE set also includes bel air scripts, and the 283 fender badging. So I removed the crossed flags and "409" from the front fenders prior to painting. So, how's it going? Check out the Pics to see :-) Other 62s on my bench, Silver Bel Air, white walls, poverty caps, 2 BBL 283; Gold Impala black walls, poverty caps and base (single 4 BBL) 409; Black Impala White walls, full wheel covers, 327 4 BBL Thanks for looking and more later on...
