Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Hi All. I've spent a fair amount of time lurking around this forum admiring all of the great models and getting some fantastic tips and ideas and now I'm finally getting around to posting pics of my completed models to, maybe, inspire someone else. The enjoyment of modeling, for me, is 'kit bashing', taking whatever parts, kits or previously completed models that I have laying around, to make something new and different. My latest effort could best be described as a Competition Coupe dragster but since NHRA doesn't have that class anymore this model would now run in something like the Good-Guys Nostalgia Eliminator class. I built this racecar by combining AMT's Willys Van with AMT's Tommy Ivo rear-engine fueler. I piecut chopped the body and layed the windshield back. I raised and moved forward the fenders. I also layed the grill back and then merged the Ivo rail body in between. Then I had to swap the roll cage and the engine location (remember, I'm trying to use what's available). After completing bodywork I made my own inkjet decals and tried doing an airbrush paintjob. All of my previous models were painted with spray cans. I definitely need more practice to get proficient with an airbrush and learning how to use the various kinds of paints. I'm looking forward to seeing other heavily modified/customized models by others.
