Scale I Build

Found 6 results

  1. Like many of you, Hot Wheels cars were a big part of my childhood. I believe those little redline mag wheels got me hooked on cars when I was 6 years old. The past few months I've decided to build tributes to the original "Sweet 16" Hot Wheels introduced in 1968. I have acquired, at a huge cost, one of all 16 cars and have started the build collection with first the Custom Cougar, Deora and Hot Heap. Finished the Custom T-Bird 7/17 I will be adding to this thread as I build them. I'm not building high detailed models, in fact I'm trying to replicate what these would be as bigger 1/25 scale versions, even with silver painted chassis and engine compartments with chrome engines if I can as I did with the Hot Heap, so be fair in judgement these are not built to be Best of Show models. The "Redline" wheels are Pegasus "T's". I used black and red sharpies to create the illusion of the Redline wheels. Hope you enjoy looking at these, as much as I'm having fun building them. 1967 Custom Cougar - Deora - Handmade surf-boards were fun to make from plastifoam board Hot Heap - Built this for a stock 1913 Model T kit from Russia I found on ebay, hard to find full-fendered T models. I heavily modified this to look like the Hot Wheel. I know, there is an MPC kit to build this from but hard to find and crazy money. 1967 T-Bird- Added the "custom hood bump"
  2. Hi there ! Here is my last build, a '73 Mercury Cougar. Rusty, missing parts, should be a nice project car The kit is from AMT, 1/25 scale.
  3. Due to arrive in February/March 2015 in two versions, molded in either white or orange. Check out the kit's contents here: http://modelkitreviews.proboards.com/thread/118/25-amt-mercury-cougar-eliminator?page=1&scrollTo=136
  4. Hi folks, I finished the Eliminator yesterday. It was a bit of a fight, especially as far as the body color is concerned. I learnt that yellow is one tough color to get a good result in. Here come the images, hope you like it:
  5. I tore this Cougar apart because the steering wheel was rolling around loose inside the car. After getting it apart and knowing I already had good one, I decided to change it up some. White interior just sounded like a good idea.
  6. AMT 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator built without the spoilers, scoop and stripes as I think it looks better that way. Wheels are MRC Cragar SS. I tried the 'BMF the scripts before painting' trick but they are moulded a bit light and it didn't work as well as I'd hoped.
