Scale I Build

Found 3 results

  1. Just wrapped up this Revell 1969 Chevy Nova, overall was a fun build and what I needed to build some motivation. My goal was initially to build this mostly box stock (for the most part it is) and have it completed in about a month or so (which it was not). As many modelers do, I have ton of projects going but needed something to build and actually complete, I think the last model I completed was my 36 Ford in 2017/early 2018. This kit built out very nice, only issue I really ran into was the front grill, fit very tight, using automotive clear may have contributed a little but I should have worked that area over a little better. The stance was lowered a little, I stole the redlines and rally's from Revell's 1968 Chevelle kit, the front needed to be worked over quite a bit to get them to clear the inner fenders. Added some engine details, has been years since I used the braided line and could not find my fittings, so I cut down some round tubing. Otherwise, added some ignition wire, fuel line and battery cables. The interior is mostly kit stock, I added charcoal flocking to the floor and package tray. The body is stock, it was scribed then cleaned the seam lines and general mold stuff up, primed it with Tamiya primer, then wet sanded it all with 1500 and 2k grit paper before shooting some House of Kolor Kandy Base Coat down, went with Pagan Gold and covered that with Deltron Clear. Did a little color sanding and polishing but nothing crazy. I'll most likely add an air cleaner and license plates, just looking for some aftermarket stuff I have put away somewhere. Thanks to all that followed the build in the WIP section and hope you enjoy the pics. Now onto the next project!
  2. Hi Guys, I haven't put a build on here for a while so I thought I'd post some pics of a project I completed today.
  3. Hi Guys, Here are some pictures of the '40 Ford Coupe that I completed over the weekend:
