Scale I Build

Found 28 results

  1. This is the new Revell AAR kit. I bought it with a gift card I got as a bonus from work. I had gotten the old kit when it first cam out, but I bought the wrong paint and did not like the results. This kit is not a bad kit, but it just doesn't look right to me. I like the original kit better. SAM_0047 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0048 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0049 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0050 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. I picked this kit up at an estate sale a while back and decided to put it together. I had plans of doing the car in a dark red exterior with a black interior, however when I put the first layer of primer down I liked the black and decided to go black on black. The plating had come off of one of the bumpers pretty bad, so while deciding what to do with that i was looking at the body partially assembled I thought with a bit of modifications I could make it look just like my 1:1 2018 Dodge Challenger. I went to work removing the things below the front bumper to make it a bit smoother. I left the rear chrome bumper off and added a wired distributor. The rims went through 4-5 modifications will I finally settled on the extra ones that came out of the custom 32 Ford Vicky I recently did (Link). Sorry about the lint in some of the pictures, did not notice till I was editing them for this post and it is raining outside, so taking new ones was not possible.
  3. Hi, everybody just posting a build I've been working on for a while. It's revell's 1/25 hemi cuda, I know some people aren't going to like it and thats okay. But with this kit I wanted to sit low, with wide tire and most importantly keep the rear seat. I've never built one with 4 seats, plus I like flared fenders. This was inspired by a rendering by Andreas Wennevold and the Srt Demon. The engine is the hellcreate demon from Iceman Collections the suspension is revell viper acr. The body still needs to be touch up, and straightened a little but I should get to it within 2 weeks.
  4. Another thread, two nights in a row. Kind of hard to ignore. My build of a '71 Cuda 426. The paint is model master Sublime green. I started and painted this car in January 2018. My first model build with bare metal foil!!! No looking back now. The pictures do not do it justice. The shaker hood scoop needs to be trimmed down. I just painted it and notice it won't let the hood sit flat. What do you think??
  5. Hey, everyone! here is another kit that i had started a few years ago....hopefully posting it will help me get it done! I have as many Muscle car kits as i do exotics, and the 1970 Hemi 'cuda is my favorite one of ALL time! I have a book that my wife, Tina got me, and it had a photo of the one i had to build. Since i already had a super detailed example of a 426 Hemi in my 67 GTX, iwas just gonna build it as a curbside. Since i've gifted away that GTX, i need another example of that engine.......so this will be it. Its gonna be a "modified" curbside, meaning; i'm not concerned about detail of the chassis. The body, engine bay, and interior will all be my usual level of detail. -Photo 2&3; Since MCG wasnt gonna make a detail set for this kit, i got lucky, and found that Hobby Design made!....and boy what a set!!! -it WONT tarnish either! Even though i will use very little of it, its nice to know that its out there for others. The main reasons i got it was for the scripts, and front grills. -Photo 4; This is the kolor it will be, with a white interior, and black trim/ hockey stick stripe. -Photo 5; The stance is set!... -Photo 6&7; heres the starting of the Tub-Job.
  6. This model is actually a marriage of two models. The chassis, interior and engine are actually from my old '70 Challenger TA. I traded the Challenger body off to a friend who races slot cars. I got the ex-racer Cuda body from him as well. I had always thought that Panther Pink was a unique Mopar color so I thought I'd would try it on this one. It took the second repaint to get it right. The original inner fenders were hacked up in order to provide tire clearance for the slot car chassis. I used a Pepsi can to create aluminum panels for the inner fenders and fire wall. The engine was built back in the 80's when I used thread for ignition wires. My first choice of wheels was the billet 3 hole directionals. But just before I sacrificed a set of Cragars (with bad centers) for the trim rings, I mocked them up. Even though I completed the effort of widening the directionals, I still kept thinking about 5-spokes. I ended up doing an informal poll of a few Yahoo modeling groups and the five spokes were the overwhelming choice. So... I widened a set of those to go on the Cuda. The only addtional item of note is the photo-etch triple gage set under the dash. For some reason it took me a long time to get this one done.
  7. This model I am very proud of. I absolutely love the Sub-Lime green paint. It says MOPAR, all the way. The rims are from the kit but I used the 5-holers, intended for the rear, on the front. I widened the rear rims by sanding out the centers of a set of ConvoPros and adding them to the original front rims to make them deep dish. I actually had to narrow the rear tires slightly to get them to fit in the quarter panels. What I like the most is I nailed the stance perfectly. The grille was meticulously hand painted and this is the second model I have ever BMF’d. I tried using the black, Hemi “billboard” decals from the kit which are correct for 1971, but I did not like them the minute they were laid. Instead I had Keith Marks make me up a set of 1/24th 1970 “hockey stick” stripes which I think looks a whole lot better. The interior was painted semi-gloss by spraying Testors Glosscoat over Testors flat black. I duplicates the texture and sheen of vinyl. When the head lights were installed, they looked like binoculars. I ended up setting back a tad to get them to look correct. If I ever win the lottery, I would buy a real one.
  8. Decided to do a base hood version of the Cuda. Blue Angels Yellow paint. SAM_0355 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0360 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0367 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0368 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  9. Hi everyone I've been building and scrapping this build for going on 3 years. This is my first model build I've ever done. I would love to get ideas, help, or any other feedback to help me move this baby along. I have a bunch of ideas I want to incorporate into it from some of my favorite builds. So far I'm going to be making a efi itb dodge NASCAR engine. I made the wide 5 wheels from some wheels off of eBay. I think I definitely need some kind of flares to widen the stance (I think it looks too narrow under the stock fenders). I'll post some quick mock up pics below. Thanks for looking and look forward to see what you all think.
  10. I just finished this one after a 5+ year build. It's is a representation of the documented last 'Cuda convertible to roll off the line. There is much conjecture as to why it ended up with the non-matching orange seats! I used a seat from the AMT Duster kit, and re-scribed the pattern on it to represent the base trim level 'Cuda seat. I then cloned that seat in resin to make the other seat. The pattern is carried over to the rear seat. The dash has a Rallye instrument cluster grafted in from an AMT kit. The steering wheel is modified from a Coronet. The engine was borrowed from the Monogram Challenger T/A, changed over to 4-bbl carb. Feel free to comment. I hope you like it!
  11. These are the only two photos I have of one of my early efforts. I built this in about 1975, I think, from the kit pictured. I recall having to remove the rear suspension from the kit chassis and replace it with leaf springs and scratch built shackles. Like my Chevelle, I built it per NHRA's 1975 rules for Modified Production--from the same rule book I'm currently using! Anyway, the photos are barely worth sharing (the model probably wasn't that great, either!), but, I was proud of it, even so!
  12. Third ever build was a 1970 Plymouth barracuda. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. Missed some spots with paint in the engine since I don't have an airburish. There's also a very small gap at the top of the windshield but I'll take it. On to the next one.
  13. New AAR hood for the new Revell 1:25 scale Cuda kit. This is not based on the old Revell AAR Cuda hood. This is my own creation. I used my friend's AAR Cuda hood for measurements. It should be availbale in about a week or so. I need to do some more finish work on it. I'm thinking of posting these on eModelCars, since a lot of people seem to not like ebay. I can sell for less on eModelCars without all the ebay fees. If you're interested let me know what you think. Sam

    '71 Hemi Cuda

    My girlfriend and I just finished our latest project together, this time we decided to do a Hemi Cuda in plum crazy. We're pretty pleased with this one other than the fit and finish of the kit itself in places but it happens. A big thank you to the site for providing techniques on how to strip the chrome off the bumpers. Much happier with them in body colour. Now on to the next one!
  15. Revell 1/24 '71 HEMI® 'Cuda Hardtop I saw this model at my local drug store and it was on sale, so I got it. This is a picture of the painted body sitting on the frame: I put some 19" rims with low profile tires on it, I think they look much better than the stock ones that come with the kit I need to do a little detail work with the black strip, but i really like it on the lime green. and of course The Hemi: I will try to post more as it get it done.
  16. Hi. Had this old 70 Cuda laying around and i thought give it a new chance,had some parts missing and overall in pretty rough shape. Not really sure what style it`s got,i just wanted it to look really mean,street machine with some 70s race car flares and 80s tuning style decals and so on. It`s obviously an bastard since there never was any T/A Cuda`s? There is also lot`s of inspiration from Japan car scene,with the wheels,flares,the oil cooler up front. I added fuel injection with 8 separate throttle bodys,(This maby make six pack sound dumb,oh well). I added Momo steering wheel,half cage,the interiour was going to match the decals,also added a Hurst shifter and some gauge decals. I tried give some under hood detail,these kits dont really have much,so a little improvment is better then nothing. I kinda like the outcome,low,fat and nasty. Here are some pics,hope you like it and comments are welcome.
  17. Does anyone make headers for the 340 small block?
  18. The WIP: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=88641 The Unboxing Video: The Painting of the body: The Painting of the smaller parts: http://youtu.be/O1c6ez5oS_g Thanks for watching!!
  19. I love my Chevelles, my Challenger, and my Charger.......but I haven't been able to stop messing with this thing since I finished it. It came out better than expected!
  20. Thought i`d just post it as finish before i was tempted to throw it in the dumpster. Did so many errors and faults i could write several pages on it,but i`ll cut it short. I forgot to paint mirrors,messed up decals for the interiour,forgot to paint the underside of the hood,wrong color on the radiator beam,forgot to paint the top of the front housing the lights,grill etc. I painted the shaker in the same color as the surrounding of the grill,but the paint was really weird,like it got sand in it. So i stripped it,then painted it satin black,with flat black gasket,but this paint was weird too,it was only flat on spots and i stired the can really good before paint,so it`s in strip right now. And to top it all,i was painting an Chrysler 300C the other day,the Cuda was getting clear on the same day. It was in the same room,but far away from where i painted the Chrysler. Even so,it`s full of paint dust from i was painting the Chrysler,the list go on and on and on The paint is Tamiya. Decals i found on parts on Ebay. Tires are from Revell 69 Charger. Wheels are from Scenes Unlimited. Plug wires are Hobby Design. I do not recomend these,way to stiff. Radiator hose from Scale Production. Heater hose,i dont remember. Plates and quarter decals are from 71 Cuda Street Machine,MPC? Some photos. Thanks for looking.
  21. With the 2013 Cannonball drawing closer I thought I'd post my entry from 2011. It was my first time being in a cbp and a total blast to be apart of. The color is Testors One Coat Lime Ice, the model itself went together very well. I would like to note that this was the first car I was ever brave enough to buff down with sanding pads, until this the thought of taking anything across the paint job was considered suicidal. But it turned out really well in the end and I'm happy I did it. Anyway before I turn this into a long and likely boring story I'll just start showing pics. I'll have a few more pictures up shortly, thanks for looking!
  22. Since i have been waiting for parts for my other projects and got overwhelmed by boredom i started a new kit. It`s the Nash Bridges Cuda from Revell. I`m not sure why but yellow was never a favorite color of mine,it kinda mess up the lines of cars and make chrome "disappear". So i went for a blue metallic,since it`s not meant to look like any factory option or 100% stock i thought no harm would be done except for maby anoying the purist. This is my first time with BMF,and omg what a nightmare and the result there after (more to do) I want to keep this clean and simple,and got steelies with dogdish in the same color as the car. Not sure how to lower it but i`m working on it. Engine will be stock,and i thought i give it a shot on try wire it for the first time,and i hope it`s a little more easy then this BMF stuff. Also it will get white interiour and white hemi decals on rear panels. Hopefully it will look good. Comments are welcome. Here are some crappy pics,only have my phone so.
  23. Where do i find decals for the the 1970 Plymouth Cuda? These are the one i`m searching for (see picture)
  24. Not sure where to post,but check out these cool illustrations from this blog: http://ebodies.blogspot.no/ Maby some good ideas for a model kit?
  25. The 1970-1971 Plymouth Rapid Transit System [RTS] Road Show cars are all found and restored (as necessary) , and are in the collection of one Steven Juliano . The attachment is of the 1970 Duster from that show . Has anyone attempted to replicate one or all of the cars from this collection ?
