  1. Riviera

    Built this awhile back, but didn't have a chance to post it until now. Not bad for an AMT model. SAM_2539 by Eric Lucas, on Fli SAM_2542 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2541 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2540 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. Hut Stricklen

    Built back in the '90s, always liked the flags on the hood. Hut Stricklen took over the ride after Bobby Allison's near-death crash at Pocono. Thanks for looking.
  3. I have Monogram's '70 Buick GSX kit, and I'd like to build a '71 GS convertible. I ordered a resin convertible body from Mill City Replicas. The only other real differences between the years are the bumpers and the grill. --> Does anyone know if there is a '71 version of the bumpers and grill out there that I can use? Someone making them in resin or something? If not, I'll have to fabricate them. Below are pictures of the front and rear of the 1971 GS, which is slightly different from '70, the Monogram 1970 kit, and the resin convertible body I ordered.
  4. 1988 Buick Regal Lowrider

    HI! This lowrider model is based on a 1/25 promo which had no information of model company that has made it. Promo was packed in white cardboard box with color prints of drawn pics of red Regal and large Buick- logos. Maybe it´s made by Brooklin or MPC or AMT... I don´t know. Same company has obviously made the Buick Reatta promo bcause it it so similar to this Regal. But on to model: I Disassembled the promo and painted it with tamiya paints. Body has: Surfacer white + Light pearl red + lame flake ( PS) + clear + metallic orange ( thin mist layers ) + clear Some modifications to rear subrame was done also and finally I added Pegasus wheels. Pics:
  5. 1961 Buick

    Bought this eons ago mint in the box. Two-tone color combo inspired by picture in brochure. Colors custom mixed lacquer inside and out. Body coated in Dupont two-part clear. 3-toning the 1-piece interior was quite the challenge! Added as much underhood detail as I could get away with... Thanks for looking!
  6. I finished this model in february 2010. It's a Hasegawa 1:24 scale kit of a 1966 Buick Wildcat. Texts (spanish only, sorry): http://www.angelnoes.es/2016/03/buick-wildcat-custom-1966-hasegawa-124.html
  7. Anyone up for roast?

    Served by grandpa`s Buick. On a serious note,is it much work to convert the Monogram Stage1 into an GS? I like the wimbeldon white Stage1,but it has been done so many times i kinda wanted to try do an GS version,or even more plane jane Skylark.
  8. Does anyone know of a 1960 buick lesabre kit or a resin body? thanks
  9. Hi everybody, here is my 66 Riviera - to make three, in this section this week, complete. After a failed paintjob for a cool Lowrider, a missing enginebay in the kit, i had "no other chance" to safe him not to throw in the trash. Take a look at my Lowrider... stay a while for the pics inside...
  10. Well this is the first time I've ever attempted to build a model car..a quick history, if anyone acually cares: I own an '84 mustang, and decided to build a model of my car. I've done alotta work to my car so of course it looks much different than the model kit. I wanted to build an exact model, so I embarked into the model car world. I located and immediately bought 3 of the monogram 83/84 mustang convertible kits. One from a guy in my car club who is doing the same thing. He put me on to this forum. I wanted to start building my model, But I figured I'd do a practice run before I started it. Since I've been here, I'm amazed at some of the work I've seen..especially the junkyard models. I immediately wanted to track down the resin parts to customize the model, but I decided to stay "out of the box" and get a feel for things. I fell in love with the hobby immediately, and I stopped at a local hobby store and bought a Grand National, since its a similar era car...and to be honest, minimal exterior trim, plus I like 'em. So here goes the progress, I have to fight my impulses to keep it 'stock", but I think I'm gonna get some Weld-style wheels and slicks, thats down the road. Hope you enjoy the build as much as I am.
  11. Buick Grand National - 1987

    Hallo everybody, today i want to show you a newer car out of my collection. The 1987 Buick Grand National with supercharged V-6 engine. What i like on this car? Because, it has a dark shining when you stay in front of it and always sold in black - i think so. The only thing i was not painting like the original is the interieur. i hate all the grey stuff in it and so i made my own upholstery. Also this car has a story. His owner is a bounty hunter - take a look! wait a minute...to be continued...
