Scale I Build

Found 167 results

  1. So I got an order in for a customer to do a build on their race car so I’m going all out on this one, I’ve been working non stop for the past few days and this is what I have so far
  2. Hello everyone. Well this isn't really on the work bench yet as my plans are to enter in the model car show in February. But, I do need some help. This wheel be my first time lowering a model car and I would like to keep the realism of it if possible. The rear end I have figured out. The front suspension is another story. A-arm is mounted to the frame and there isn't a lot of room to hack off the spindle. I was thinking of sawing off the A-arm to bring it up some but there ain't a lot of room to do that. So any suggestions, advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
  3. Here is my 70 SS Chevelle, removed the roof an put Cutlass Convertible on! Used Woopie kat decals
  4. I started this one about 8 years ago. I decided to take the 409 from Revell's 62 Impala kit and transplant it into the 64. Simple right? Both cars have basically the same frame in real life so it should not have been a big deal to put the engine in it. This is how much of the 64 frame I had to grind away to get the engine to fit. But, I got the engine to fit! Shot the Testors 64 Chevy Silver blue paint on it today. The interior will either be a metallic blue or white and black, not sure right now.
  5. I recently started building a Revell '69 Chevy Nova and can't really decide how to build it. I'd like to see some of your Novas. Different wheel and color combinations are welcome.
  6. Completed my 1969 Chevy Nova. Was a fun and fairly relaxing build. Only issue I had what with my clear coat. For whatever reason, when Insprayed my Future Clear coat after drying for a few days it started to spider web. Any ideas as to what could have caused it?
  7. The original plan was to paint this Tamiya Metallic green, but something happened on the way to the painting station. I decided to paint it Fathom Green Metallic instead. Here's some pics Thanks for looking! All comments welcomed.
  8. Hey guys, I just wanted to share another build I completed a few weeks ago for a customer
  9. I started this build last year and finally got motivation to post it, this one is gonna be one of the best if not the best build I’ve done so far, so I’m not going to rush it.
  10. I did a poll on my Instagram (@muurcreations) a few days ago and they wanted me to build barefoot Ronnie’s old nova so I’m giving them what they want lol. I’m my opinion, his car is really under appreciated because it really is beautiful
  11. Shambles

    56 Chevy

    Another old build I no longer have. Nice kit, I forget the brand but I think it was a 1/24 scale.
  12. Hi everyone, My first finished build of the year. Texas Terry was my favorite driver growing up and I've always loved the look of the Hagan cars and the pre-aerocoupe Monte Carlo SS body. This build is stock, with the exception of Chimneyville Decals. Overall, the kit was a nice, fun build. I used Tamiya rattle can for the body and chassis. I went for an early season red chassis because I like the bright interior. For the rest of the car, I used Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. My biggest issue was with the aftermarket decals, which peeled on the edges when applying clear. But it's going on the shelf and overall I'm fairly happy with it.
  13. I started anothe truck build for another customer, this one is simple but gonna be nice as well
  14. I started on a replica for a customer of his truck, I really wish i had another kit I could back half and do it up
  15. Well, if you haven't noticed by my profile pic, I'm a Chevelle guy. When I saw this kit coming out I knew I had to have it. This is the Chevelle I always wanted. I wanted to be the first to post, but because of work wasn't able to get the job done, so I got beat by a couple days.

  16. Hi everyone! My name is Jake and I'm new to the forum. It's tough finding a good NASCAR model community so I'm really pleased to join y'all. Here are some photos of my first NASCAR build, which I finished about a year and a half ago. I started with a Jimmie Johnson Snaptite kit and was pretty impressed with it. I didn't do much modification, just some minor detailing here and there. I used (I think) Slixx decals for the Coke throwback and some extra hood pins I got from Mike's Decals. Paint was TS-8 for the red and Vallejo acrylics for the gold. I just started the Bobby Allison Coke Mercury Cyclone from Polar Lights and cannot wait to get the 2 cars side by side. Thanks for looking!
  17. I posted previously about Kodiak Supply decal paper here. It's pretty amazing stuff. I'm a career graphic designer who specializes in motorsports design. Specifically dirt oval. That being said, Kyle Larson is my guy. With this being one of my first cars of making my own decals, I wanted it to be fairly simple so I can working out the kinks of the process. You'll be seeing quite a few more of his more specialized cars. I want to tackle the AXE Peace car next. I'll keep you posted on how the build progresses.
  18. I had no clue as to what color I originally wanted to paint this one since it had been so long since I started it, (2014) but finally decided on Testor's Italian Red. Not too bad. I'll get rid of that finger print! Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  19. I want to make a model of my son's 1:1 1981 Chevy truck he inherited from my dad. I've got the body itself sorted out, including scratch building the camper shell, but I need to figure out the grille. I did a Google search and found a picture of a model with the correct grille. The grille looks like it is resin. I'm looking for that EXACT grille.
  20. I'm not a model builder. More of a model tinkerer. I'm hoping to improve as I've never actually successfully completed a model. I hope to learn the skills needed to be satisfied enough to actually complete one and mover onto number 2. I'm a Chevy guy by nature and mostly want to find 51 Chevy kits but will be practicing with others as well as trying to build the 69 Nova (I'd actually want to build a 70) . I missed out on the 51 Fleetlines and so will be looking to build those as well as get some resin 51's in other body styles. I'd like to also build a Christine 1958 Plymouth. I've been into model cars before and watch several youtube channels but I just never seem to stick with it enough to improve. I can look over ones I've started in the past and see where I could have done better so I guess that's progress.
  21. Started on a Cuda, but was immediately disappointed with the model quality, so I shelved that for this model. Decided to go with a metallic grape,with a white roof. Not breaking the creative meter, but my apprenticeship must continue before I start modding builds. I imagine I'll be heavy modding whenever I get a 3d printer. I finally found an affordable printer capable of 1/24 scale.
  22. First up, started back in 2003 or so, painted in short cuts "Iris," I'm trying out the red window glass from the new release in it. What do you think? Next, remember when this was a new release? Well, that is when I started this one! I lowered the rear suspension by trimming the mounting tabs and then cutting a hole in the floor above the rear axle so the pumpkin could set lower. It is still not as low as the front but it will work for me. Tires are from the new issue 55 Cameo while it's sporting a set of AMT 64 Chevrolet SS hubcaps. It's truly a period piece because I am using the 63 Mercury grill in it as well. Last, but not least, the "retro rod" build. Engine is from the Revell 57 150 kit with the standard shift. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  23. Painted Tamiya pure white and TS-44 Bright blue, this was supposed to be a rebuild of an older one. The older one is still soaking in the paint remover so I decided to start a new one. The engine is from the original issue of the 57 kit while the twin 4-bbl intake and valve covers are from the new tool AMY 57. That's it for now, thanks for looking!
  24. hi everybody here is some in progress pics of my Chevy. it is the latest release of the somewhat new tool bel air from AMT. I am surprised by the level of detail this kit has. It includes spark plug wires and a firing order diagram it also has some bare metal foil and a full sheet of photo etch witch has the aluminum side panel inserts and all of the badges the one thing I don't like isthat it has plastic inserts for the white wall tires
