Scale I Build

  1. WIP: "Barn find" Italeri's Lamborghini Miura with link to article that was the inspiration. What I do with kits that aren't accurate or detailed enough, is make derelicts. If it wasn't mostly made of aluminum, would have added rust. Since this car was kept in a garage, protected from weather and rodents, it was well preserved. Built as Box Stock, the only modification was dropping the rear axel, and using another front badge. Last build for 2021! The real car's bonnet opens up this much, but the exhaust pipes lift the rear wheels off the ground. 😂
  2. How can you hate a Miura? When it's a poorly done, sort of curbside kit that is eclipsed by the Hasegawa kit. What can be done to improve such a kit, besides step on it? I've done several models of such kits, as beaters or abandoned derelicts, because it's not worth spending months on it when better kits exist. When I saw this PETROLICOUS: This Lamborghini Miura Is A Family Heirloom Barn Find article, I knew what to build. Today in my search, found two other cars that were found abandoned, so it's a ripe subject. There are some things that I could change to be faithful to the car, grip shift handle, custom air filters, steering wheel design, some plaques, but I won't. So here goes, totally Box Stock, will not modify, switch parts, make parts, nothing but give it the crummiest paint job possible. 😏 Box art is nice, with the 50th anniversary logo. To be fair, most of the parts don't need much cleanup. The wheels are nicely detailed, but one end has more flashing than the other end. The body is reasonably accurate, mold lines are very minimal. There is one booger that I *had to* fix. If this was to be a contest model, there are some minor spots that should be puttied. Glued together sub-assemblies. Separating the body parts was dicey, could not use sprue cutters, so I sawed them apart. Some parts that were elsewhere on the sprues, are Tacky glued near parts to be painted the same color. First paint session. Quick coat of Tamiya primer on the body. Model Master flat black (this is sort of like watching someone die a slow death, what am I going to use when it's used up?) everywhere, the interior of the subject car is black. Alclad magnesium on the wheels, polished aluminum steering wheel, headlights and spinners, (regular) aluminum carbs, engine bottom and hood hinges. The chassis and interior are done. I painted the air cleaner tops with Alclad white aluminum. Testors canopy glue the headlight lenses and back window. Flattened the tires before sticking them on the plastic shafts. That interior sucks, look at the legroom! 🤣 So much wrong with it, but when the windows are dusted, won't see it. Maybe I'll paint the body orange tonight.
  3. My first build in almost 30 years. This is an old issue Revell 54 Chevy gasser kit that was sitting on my shelf. It was missing quite a few parts like the front door panels, front and rear bumpers, front and rear suspensions, engine, and tranny among other things. What was there was a broken back window, cracked front valence panel and the body was so thin you could almost see through it. I thought about finding a re-issue version but opted for fabrication and robbing my parts boxes. I began with weathering the body to hide some of glue stains and went from there. I used a combination of methods (salt chipping and windex and dusting to achieve the effects you see. The windshield, side windows and back window are scratch built using clear projection sheets from the old style school overhead projectors. This was my first time using BMF and am still learning its challenges and realized this was probably not the best one to start with as most of the body lines were pretty minimal and faint.
  4. Hi there ! Here is my last realisation, a 1969 Camaro SS. This is the 1/25 Baldwin motion kit from Revell. That car has been sitting in a field for a while, so the rust has began to attack the body, but it's still solid and in a pretty good shape... but a restoration is needed... as soon as possible. The last owner has installed a Baldwin Motion style hood and Cragar wheels, but let the car in a field a few years later.... Well, I let you see some pictures !
  5. Just finished building this '57 Chevy "barn find" vintage gasser. You can get all the details and more photos on my site at the link. http://www.svensworldofwheels.com/57_chevy_barn_find_gasser_page.html
  6. This is a 1/25th scale Camaro by revel that has been forgotten about.
