Scale I Build

    Cars in Songs

    So recently I have been on a muscle car kick, and have been purchasing some muscle car kits from The Big Four. I have found some inspiration for a couple of my builds from TV and music, particularly the 1969 Dodge Charger R/T from The Dukes of Hazzard, and a planned 1964 Pontiac GTO from G.T.O. (1964) by Ronny and the Daytonas. Now, I know that there are lots of cars in media from many different eras (like the 1967 Mustang Fastback in Bullitt); but what really got me thinking were that cars sung about in the 1960s era car songs. Some I have figured out. Little Duce Coupe (1963) by the Beach Boys is about a 1932 Ford Coupe hot rod, but the song that got me thinking about this tonight was The Little Old Lady (from Pasadena) (1964) by Jan and Dean. (Yes, it was also performed by The Beach Boys). The lyric that sparked my interest is "But parked in a rickety old garage, Is a brand new shiny red Super-Stock Dodge". Now, if the song was written & released in the Spring of 1964, my question to the Forum is: "What is the 1964 Super-Stock Dodge they are singing about? Could it be a Charger?" Anyway, see what happens when you have a long drive? Interesting bit of trivia: the B-side to Jan and Dean's The Little Old Lady (from Pasadena) is My Mighty G.T.O.
  2. Hey y'all started up about a year and a half ago. I build everything from movie cars to early 20th century. Working on details and the perfect paint job—an endless struggle I can't seem to get the hang of. I enjoy making movie cars as they give an extra dimension to a build for me. In the near future I'll be looking towards resin and bash builds. Just thought I'd introduce myself.
  3. I wish that I could find an accompanying article for this sad bit of news , but I have only got first-hand news from Martyn L. Schorr : Joe Oldham passed away late last week . Many of you may recognise Oldham from his (in)famous road tests and articles about Muscle Cars back in the 60's and 70's , in addition to Oldham's ties with Baldwin Motion ; he worked for the aforementioned Schorr at High Performance CARS magazine . As new info comes in , I will update this post . R.I.P. , Joe . Here's a direct-link to the article in Hemmings Motor News https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2017/10/30/joe-oldham-consummate-car-guy-and-hemmings-columnist-rip/comment-page-1/#comment-10535420

    here's one of my achievements 1/24 lamborghini miura hasegawa LaFerrari FXXK Tamiya 1/24
  6. This is the Tamiya 1/24 scale kit of the Nissan R390 GT1 Le Mans car, and the body shell was spray-painted with Tamiya Metallic Blue over a base of Silver Leaf. Paint was polished up with MicroMesh 3200 grit thru 12000 grit, then rubbed up with Meguiar's Scratch-X. Mesh was added for vents and grills, and kit decals were used, as well as a few sponsor decals from Scale Motorsport. A lot of stuff added to the engine bay - thermostats were added to the radiators and exhaust system, hand-made shielded cable, fuel line, transmission fluid box, and tail light wiring from Model Factory Hiro, & spark plug wires from Detail Master. Exhausts were given a bit of Tamiya burnt metal powder pigments for added realism. Driver electronics are fully wired from comm. boxes, to temp gauges, to front lights. Front brake air ducts were scratch-built with parts-box leftovers. The P/E rivets and fast-release hood pins are from Scale Motorsport.
  7. Hey fellas - Bob here. I'm a Gulf War veteran and an avid modeler for about 25 years now. My main interest is motorsports...drag racing, endurance racing, F1, oval track and sprint -- if it's competition, I love it. I do stray to other subjects, but not often. I stay pretty focused.
  8. Anyone interested in scale models of all sorts should browse The Internet Craftmanship Museum. A wonderful world of truly unique and amazing scratch built replicas . Cars, ships, steam power, aircraft, engines, guns, and on and on. Most of the scale engines run. Dedicated to miniature machining, metal working, and old school craftsmanship. Individual craftsmen from all over the world are featured. Highly recommended !
  9. Has anybody ever converted a drag car back to stock? I'm thinking about doing it with my 1950 Austin Devon drag car. Looks sorta stupid to me, but mostly because I have a soft spot for slow British cars
  10. Hey All, Anyone know of the 66 Nova pro street on sale? Maybe we should start a link for Model kits on sale at?
  11. I stumbled across this recently, I suspect it appears on one of those 'Premium" cable channels, but, as I am too cheap to pay extra for premium channels,...well, I saw it on YouTube. It combines three of my favorite things in the world: cars, coffee and comedy. You can't go wrong. This episode features a Porsche-powered Karmann Ghia, Joel Hodgson of Mystery Science theatre and a very retro diner/coffee shop. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gie3_zjbF7s
  12. A lot of you probably use or have used them hair brushes with the plastic bristles. Next time you do, take a look at them. They are basically a bunch of shifter handles with ball knobs on 'em. I've used them once or twice in die cast. Let's see how it works for plastic.
