  1. Question: I see a 1968 Chevrolet pickup promo for sale, $110 asking price. It has a nasty crack in a bed side, missing fender logos and gas cap (I can make a gas cap). I saw a nice one for $185 at a model show. Would the AMT bed fit ok on this? Is the price out of line?
  2. Hello everyone, i finally got this Fleetside project done, and its about time to post it here. I used a lot of aftermarket photoetching parts from High light model studio and had much fun with detailing and painting progress. I did learn alot about weathering techniques and all painting is done with brush. Im already looking forward to my next project. But less talk now and more photos Workbench topic:
  3. 1953 Chevy 3100 Truck.

    Hello everyone. I’m new to scale modeling and this is my first diorama ever. I have been experimenting with preserved sheer moss, which I have used as grass. Please, feel free to critique and give some input. It’s still a work in progress as I’m waiting for some materials to arrive. I will repost with updates as I add more details.
  4. AMT 70 Monte Carlo

    Finally finished after starting in in June of 1998.
  5. So here is one that I started back in 2002. I want to get it finished because I have decided to do the same kit for the 13th Annual 24 hour build. I figured if I'm going to get one done in 24 hours, then I should get this one done first! Here is where I'm at right now. I did the wheel well trim, seat trim, dash trim, tail light trim, and hood chrome all with a Molotow 2mm chrome pen. I love it! How did I ever get by without it? (By using BMF that's how! PIA it is!) Body is painted with Auto touch up "ultra marine blue with a clear coat (I think) or else I polished it out. It has been too long for me to remember, but I think I just clear coated it. Ken's fuzzy fur carpet. I still need to do more on the dash, like instrument decals and some finer painting of the chrome. Door trim is BMF while seat trim is Molotow pen. I have a decal for the back as well, I just could not resist doing the pen on it though. Outside of tail light bezels are the pen while the inside is Testors Chrome paint. Valve covers and intake are from the AMT 62 BelAir while the block is from the kit. Thanks for looking! All comments welcomed.
  6. Revell 69 Camaro

    I started this one I don't know how long ago, probably around 2015 or so. Anyway, playing with the Yenko Nova and 68 Chevelle I thought I'd get Chevy's other heavy hitter back. What is funny is I compared this body to the AMT 68 Camaro, and I think the AMT version looks a little smaller than it should be. What do you guys think?
  7. Started on these today. Got the frames down and will wait for good weather to paint them. Thanks for looking!
  8. My daughter couldn’t wait for Christmas for me to open this one!
  9. Hey guys! This is the 66 Suburban kit from revell, here it is so far.
  10. Conversion of a conversion, the Canopy Express is a rare vehicle to begin with. I started this April 1995. *Edit* I made it a 1948, simple to remove the door vent windows. For starters, anyone building the '50 Chevy pickup needs to know, the driveshaft should be assembled the other direction, the end at the differential is fixed, the instructions are incorrect. The other thing I've done so far, is correct the running boards, by shaving down the perimeter so the ribs stand proud, not recessed lines, that's a pet peeve of mine with this kit. Another pet peeve, is the firewall should be flush with the front of the cab, not recessed back, but that requires reworking the recess for the engine, so I have corrected that. Yet another pet peeve, is flat headlight reflectors, that has been corrected. Can't forget the door handles, they were shaved off, will make new ones, that will sag like the real thing. LOL The reason I put this away for so long, the interior needs a total scratch-build. The resin floor with wheel wells is completely incorrect. I am planning to not keep the wood floor boards, but make it like they put in diamond plate or a newer ribbed truck bed (will be last minute decision). I have turned the wheel well form, from Corian using the drill press. I'm now at the cardboard mockup stage, which will become part of the plastic form to vacuum-form the interior panels. I have the tailgate done, used eye glasses hinges, and interior panel is done. I'm now working on the driver seat, which I had previously cut down from the bench seat, but was incorrect. I am also making a new gas tank, based on the drawing in the repair manual that I kept from owning the real '48 5 window. Next steps are: bed sides with "rolled" edge, center taillight and also the other taillights, 4 on the floor gear shift, thinking about making a hood hinge with spring and latch, perhaps a roof rack that would be made of rebar, dings and dents with rust holes, will try some extreme weathering techniques. The final touch, what should the painting company name be (plan is to have spilled paint inside to use up paint)?
  11. Getting back to this one final. Did some work on the interior, Tamiya Dark German grey, flat aluminum, ultra bright BMF, and kit supplied decals. I think it come out really well, just some touch up on the aluminum on the front seat. I have some Ken's Fuzzy fur for the carpet area.
  12. My new project! Im going to use alot of time for detailing and painting and every progress. Hopefully its my masterpiece when its finished and done. So shortly, Its going to be something special Engine has started for progress.. Not much happened so far but maybe on next week i have more time to make some serious progress.. Engine is from kit, and those Edelbrock valvecovers are from some AMT model kit, i believe its `55 Chevy Stepside.. Im using Highlight Model Studio detailing parts for this build, and here are especially photoetch set designed for 64-66 Chevy pick ups.. First i started modifying tail lights, i am filling original places with glue and plastic sprue number plates, then i will sand them smooth and use filler later for really smooth finish.. PE light will be glued there, just when im about doing final detailing.. Body work first..
  13. Chevrolet Impala

    Hi , guys ! This is my Impala Lowrider. The kit is the Revell police car. Greetings from Jan
  14. Calling this one done. It was a good build. Thank you to Aaronw for the help USFS decals. Might make some wildland tools for the bed in the future.
  15. Camaro restomod

    Done this about a decade ago when i first learned how to draw paths in PS. Started on a rough pencil sketch. Kept on adding details to make this. Did it with a mouse so it was a pain to learn.
  16. For those wanting to make their model really accurate... Images from an eBay listing. https://www.ebay.com/itm/1962-chevy-c10-truck-cab-chevrolet-1960-1961-1963-1964-1965-1966-c-10-truck-/322758065568
  17. 1968 Chevrolet ElCamino SS396

    Hi everybody, i didn’t published here for long time ago, but when i see all positive comment on my two other post I will say then I have to show my work here ! I just begin to work on this Elky , I like the new goodies in that edition , soap box, decals and new Torque Thursh wheels and red line tire ! My work began by assembly the rear bed, seats, and the big block Chevy 396 ! I choose to use the Torque Trush wheels with redlined tires! Due to that I removed the white lettering from the yires other side !

  19. The very first Corvette

    The Chevrolet Corvette Prototype (GM intern EX-52) 1952 began its life as a scatch on a paper napkin. Shortly was introduced the First American Sport Car in the Motorama show in 1953. The car is existing still today but the engine was changed by Mr. Zora Duntov to a V8 engine. So the car to see today is the very first Corvette V8 ! I modified a Corvette 1953 Revell kit back to prototype: on outside was not very much to do. More differences were in the engine compartment. Here I got help with two photos from GM Media Archive. Enjoy the pictures and any comments are welcome.
  20. 1991 was the last model year that the United States Border Patrol painted their vehicles white over light green (I don't know the exact paint code). Since the BP bought Caprices as their basic patrol sedan that year, they were the last sedans to utilize this paint scheme before the agency switched to all-white cars with a green stripe the following year. The kit is from Revell, Jetsonic light bar is from the AMT Ford Taurus police car kit, and decals are from Billbozo. Paint is Tamiya Pure White over Tamiya Pearl Green and the side molding was made from Evergreen stock. In retrospect, I should have added a cage for prisoner transport but we will just say this is a supervisor's car. This is my second complete kit and again, I learned a lot from it. I mostly got to work on my BMF techniques. The only real mess up I had was that I accidentally spilled glue on the front windshield, something I was not able to fix. The real deal (courtesy of copcar.com):
  21. Good day everyone... I am wondering if anyone knows of an aftermarket caster that might make a 1954 Chevy Pick up and also a 1978 Chevy C10 long bed I have 2 friends that are wanting builds done of their trucks. A while back someone gave me the name of a caster that had a bunch of different bodies but for the life of me I can not remember who it was. As always thanks for any and all information Mike
  22. I was going to wait a little while longer before I started this thread on my 1976 Chevrolet Bison stake truck so I had more progress to show; but since we are already close to the end of the month, and the rules do say "monthly updates" I figured no time like the present. Here is the kit that I am starting with: Yes, the venerable AMT Chevrolet Bison. The plan is to replace the 8V92 that comes in the kit with a 6V92T, shorten the hood to a 108" BBC from the kits 116" BBC, swap out the air ride suspension for the spring suspension from the AMT GMC Astro/95, then add the stake body from the AMT Ford C600 kit (thank you, Aaron). I have had the Auslowe Detroit Diesel 6V92T kit kicking around for a while now, and I figured this would be perfect: Oh, man, was I ever wrong! Ever since I started building this engine back on January 1st, it's been one step forward & two steps back! I'm going to toss the Auslowe engine idea, and replace it with a 6V92T from GW Trucks. Hopefully more progress next month!
  23. Decided to merge a bit of my favorite JDM tuning influences with a rock-star of a US sportscar. The original HOtwheels version was nice enough but had some glaring issues such as the big/little wheels sizes. Putting a smaller wheel on the rear meant there was a wider wheel gap and a slumped down rear end. This is the first time I work with modelling putty. Work done: Lowered. Wheel well filled in. Widebody conversion. Custom front splitter. Rocketbunny style rear spoiler. Side mirrors. Wheels cut and reassembled further out to sit flush with wider track. IMG_3597.xmp
  24. I am using the AMT 57 Corvette frame and engine under the AMT 55 Corvette body because I feel the 57 frame is overall superior to what comes in the 53/55 kits. I have the front spindles in so I could see how it would sit. Overall look Rear close up Front close up I also did some boring things like paint the engine, sand some on the body, etc.. The AMT 57 Corvette frame really works great on the 55 body. Thanks for looking.
  25. Not perfect, but at least I like the style!
