Scale I Build

Found 16 results

  1. Talk about polishing a turd. My dad got me this for Christmas and, if anyone knows me, I like stock vehicles. The Lindberg kit here is not stock. I ordered a Hart's Parts resin hood and got the stripes from eBay. I came out descent, but this kit is a nightmare of issues. The chassis is smaller than the body! I had to apply the glue and hold the body on the chassis for an hour to get it to stay on! The tail lights look horrible, the hood was glued shut because the engine wasn't stock, and I hate that there were no side mirrors. My stripes were also the wrong scale and I had to trim them. The sides are also wrong which caused an issue with the stripes as well. SAM_0447 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0448 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0449 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. The very first car model I ever tried to build was a Challenger T/A I got from Hungate's in Independence Mall Wilmington, NC. I always wanted to get another one and do it in Sublime green. I got a few gift cards and decided to use one of them to get this kit. It came out great. The kit is a pleasure to build.

  3. Been wanting one for the collection. Found resin parts from Hart's parts and found some stripes on ebay. Came out alright. The grill is a little warped and the rear end isn't exactly correct, but it does look pretty good for what it is.

  4. A while back I had pick up some of the Revell 2009 Dodge Challengers and when I went to Ollies some time ago my son and I picked up some Revell Dodge Ram VTS Pickups. I built one of the Rams and my son had started on the other. All he finished was the engine and put it away to do a WW2 tank model. This evening he pulled the model out and was looking at it. He then pulled one of the Challengers out and started "playing" around with them. He then placed the Challenger on my desk with the V10 in it. I took a look at it and if I modify the intake and oil pan it might fit right into the engine bay. What do you guys think? Should I take his idea further? This might just give a Hellcat or Demon a run for their money
  5. Gonna start posting some of my older stuff since my old photos are lost from photobucket. 1 (2) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (3) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (4) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (5) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  6. Hello all I am looking for a set of finned valve covers for a 340 mopar like these I have lots of parts to trade Thank you
  7. Hi all! It's been quite a while since I posted any progress on any of my models. I recently set up a new model desk and finally finished up my Dodge Challenger, so here are some studio pictures of the finished build. Enjoy!
  8. Picked up the 09 Challenger special edition kit from Revell over the holidays and decided it needed something different. Was ging to drop in an old school Hemi from an old AMT kit and do a drag car, but decided instead to build up the modern Hemi with a scratch built centrifugal supercharger, shave off the 6.1L badging and add 7.0L badging to it. I kept the engine near stock, with the addition of fuel injectors and fuel rails. fuel lines will be added once I am satisfied with the supercharger and related ductwork. I will post images of that once it all comes together. body was clean overall and needed little smoothing before it was ready for paint. All the body pieces fit rather well. hood hinges need a little shaving down to let the hood rest in place properly, but that's typical. I did however spend some quaility time with the nose of the car. I like to open up the grill along with any other front end openings that typically just get painted in black. Typically one would just buy some photo-etched pieces for a new grill, but I decided instead to carefully shave the back side of the grill area and opened up the grill that way. It came out really nice and leaves the badges in place without having to reattach them later. After the paint sat for a week, I laid down some bare metal foil on the badges and painted the grill area semigloss black, rubbing the raised letters clean after the black set up a little. picture doesn't do it justice, it's hard to get good pictures with this dark color. The under body is left fairly mod free, with only addition of more foil to the exhaust pipes for that stainless exhaust look. I may weather the exhaust and underbody a little for that used look, but I am not decided on that yet. Going to have to either make some white stripes myself or see if any of the lesser challenger kits out there have what I'm looking for, since the red stripes supplied with the kit just arn't going to cut it. More to come as the build progresses, may be a while, I'm tend to let things sit between stages, as I ponder different ways to take the build.
  9. Before the end of 2015 I picked three of the Revell Streetburner 70 Challenger kits for less than 10 bucks each. The first was built to match the box art. This one I'm thinking of taking a bit farther, and the first part of that will be a grill cover. The grill work was done using .20 rod approximately 3" (75 mm) long, since I wanted light to pass through, and for the chrome and headlamps to still be visible behind it, the spacing is about .20 as well. Step 1. Building the jig. Starting with a base of tacky putty, I pressed the grill from the clip in far enough to provide the outline. Saved a lot of measuring, and gave me the points to set my corners. Placing each horizontal piece, I then alternated with standard size staples for uniform spacing. I then applied liquid glue to the verticals and placed them on. The mockup above does show the verticals under the horizontals. That was a first run through, and it made more sense to apply the verticals from the top rather than try and cement them underneath. 2. Placement Once the glue had set, I eased out of the jig with #10 blade, since I may want to use the jig again. Her's a shot of the grill laid over the front of the car. I used a marker to mark the ends of the horizontals for trimming to fit inside the setback over the headlamps and grill. That bit of rough texture visible in the picture is some of the tacky stuff that still needed to be removed. and here's a shot after trimming to fit. The top vertical was cut to fit the width of the hood opening. Cleaning and painting. I'm going black on this one. And here's another fitting after painting. Also thinking of carrying the same grill to the lower opening, but haven't decided on black or body color. Your comments are always welcome.
  10. So another step closer to getting in the swing of building again. I saw these kits on the shelves of Wal-Mart along with the Camaro and Mustang. Unfortunately, Wal-Mart pulled the kits before I made a purchase. Hobby Lobby had this one discounted, so I bought it. The paint finish is excellent, too bad Revell doesn't smooth the parting lines before painting. I guess Revell is trying to help the beginner builder by molding parts in different colors and painting the body. The interior is molded in a dark charcoal and the chassis is molded in a metallic charcoal. The builder is given some simple paint instructions to enhance the kit. I didn't put a lot of effort into detailing, because it's just a shelf model. The chassis and interior are simple, but can be detailed to look good. The exhaust is wrong for the 2013 SRT8 and the primary muffler (nicknamed the suitcase) should be two smaller mufflers. The only disappointment are the wheels. I think they are supposed to be Vapor wheels which should be a black chrome. The mold is soft and the detail is lost after chroming. I just painted them metallic black and rubbed the edge to give a different look. One other thing, I forgot to paint the rear lower valence black. Have a look.
  11. It's been almost 3 years since I completed last model. Now I got time and will to continue this amazing hobby and I decided to start working on 3 models at the same time, because this models are very similar with similar paints and parts. The models I'm working on are: Revell 2008 Dodge Challenger SRT8, Revell 2006 Dodge Magnum SRT8 and Lindberg Dodge Charger SRT8. All the parts were prepared for painting in the last couple of days and today some of them were painted with aluminum revell enamel 99. The body colors will be Brilliant Black Crystal Pearlcoat for Charger and Magnum and Plum Crazy Purple for Challenger. Sorry for bad pics taken with my phone. And while I wasn't building models I certainly was buying them Here is my Mopar collection to date :wink: Best regards, Andraz
  12. hi at all... this is what i have build out of the ´70 Challenger 2´n1 kit from Revell. have fun... greetings maik
  13. Well,it`s green so it blends in lol. This is the Monogram you can build T/A or streetmachine. I wanted somthing a little diffrent. Paint and primer is Tamiya,i did a fatal mistake of polish it with compound instead of polish, both bottles are close to identical,sloppy of me. I used the 440 Magnum engine from the 69 Revell Charger,coupled with the kit 4speed,i also used the exhaust with some modifications. Put on some R/T and six pack emblems,antenna,exhaust tips,some tire decals,these where not shaped correct so they are not perfect fit. It still got the 340 six pack air cleaner and air grabber. The engine room is very spartan on detail,so i try add heater box and hoses,also an windsheild wiper motor. Then some decals/warnings. The radiator is modifies original coupled with the 69 Charger fan cover. Ok,here are some pictures. I might go with side decals later on,thanks for looking.
  14. This is my rendition if Hollywood remade the movie Vanishing Point with the newer style Challenger. It started life as a Revell model kit, with the Revell Chip Foose 67 Charger wheel's. I painted it in gloss white rattle can, with a semi gloss black/ gloss black interior. I did a console delete and a pistol grip shifter like the 1970 Challenger. I weathered the exterior and undercarriage as if it was in the dessert for a long period of time and also had an over flow spills from the gas cap. Theres a few small details under the hood but otherwise then that mostly box stock. Enjoy
  15. So a few weeks back I got searching the interweb and came across this article on 2 guys taking a "Kowalski Edition" Challenger and rein-acting the race that took place in the movie. So doing a little research I picked up the Revell Special Edition Dodge Challenger and ordered some wheel's from the Revell Chip Foose 1967 Dodge Charger kit and went from there. This is what I have done so far. ** update 2/18/14 ** Finished up the Challenger today except for a few touch ups. I weathered as it would have been in the dessert. "Kowalski Edition" Challenger actual Chip Foose wheels mine from the model kit with gray center. Bad picture quality console delete with a pistol grip shifter
