Scale I Build

  1. Here is my ‘82 custom Dodge Van! It’s the re-released “Bad Company” kit from MPC, with my own mix on the decals. The black flaming horse decals came from the MPC Pinto Pony Express re-issue, and the sunset flaming horse came from the recent release AMT ‘66 Mustang coupe kit. I thought the wizard decals in the kit looked goofy so I swapped in those horse flame decals. I think they look like they belong together! I painted the body in Tamiya X-12 Gold Leaf, and the interior in XF-7 flat red, with Future on the seats, dash and walls. This was my first time using Future floor polish and I am definitely a convert! The body paint really pops with three thin coats of future. FYI, it’s now called “Pledge Revive It Floor Gloss Original” - it took me a while to find the current name and I had to order it from Amazon. The interior is mostly box stock, but I added a simple mini fridge and 32” flat screen tv that I modeled up in CAD and had my brother 3D print for me. The TV wall mount is just a cut piece of scrap sprue. Overall this kit went together pretty well, but it took some finessing to get the interior tub and chassis to seat properly in the body. The large glass roof panel is definitely supposed to be glued in from the inside, but it then won’t fit with the cab partition panel in place. I left it removable and just set it in from the outside. I wanted to use the chrome side exit exhaust pipes, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to actually attach them to the body or frame without doing custom fab. I didn’t realize this until final assembly so I won’t bother adding an exhaust. This kit’s eye candy is up top anyway, no one is ever going to look underneath! I probably should have left the engine out too since you can’t really see it. This is definitely the wildest looking kit I’ve ever done, and I had a blast doing it. I grew up well after the custom van scene died out, but it definitely needs to make a comeback!
  2. Is there really no kit of the Dodge Challenger or Charger SRT Hellcat? I see there are die-cast models. Reason I asked, getting a Lamborghini Chetah kit, which is motorized, thought keeping with the Chrysler V8 theme would be cool.
  3. Hello.my next project 79〜81 dodge st regis. I plan to finish it as a police car.
  4. Built this a while ago and recently added the decals and surfboards. Made the decals and plates on my laser printer and the surfboards are carved from balsa wood with sheet plastic fins. Built as a slammer with Fujimi wheels and tires from the 1/25 scale Lindberg Dodge Caravan snap kit. Paint is Duplicolor. Enjoy!! Cheers....Geoff
  5. Nothing special. The best car I ever owned is represented here. Paint is Duplicolor Chrysler Bright White. I added rub rails on the roof , repositioned the luggage rack and open the grille and replaced it with some weird netting I found, otherwise box stock. Comments & suggestions welcome.
  6. Built from Fast and Furious Dom's Charger kit. Kit's parts like the motor+ blower and wheels/tires were raided for other projects, but as I had most of the essential parts present I was customizing anyway. Mods as followed: Hood scoop from Revell '68 Charger drag option placed on '70 hood. 7.0 litre Dodge Viper motor from scrap Revell Viper ACR build, with a custom made vortech style super charger setup using a resin turbo, exhaust and sprue pieces. Styrene scrap trees bent as intake tubes and oil filters turned into air filters as the original pieces were missing. Electronic fan/radiator comes from an unknown source. Custom built side exhaust. Seats from Dodge Viper ACR. Wheels are Radio Shack X-mods, with front tires sourced from an AMT Fast and Furious Supra and rear tires from Revell C5 Corvette. Disc brakes were also sourced from the Viper ACR. Various decals were used from the 68 charger, and the red tail stripe is from the stock '70 Charger. Exterior is Walmart Color Place Gloss Black, cleared with Pledge.
  7. Hi all, been looking for an AFX (later cast by TM Resin) 1969 Dodge Dart Post Sedan to purchase since 2016, when I first got my 1:1 '73 Dart Custom. I've wanted to recreate my car in 1:25 and this sedan's roof is the exact shape I need for my car.... I've been looking high and low on ebay (TM Resin's ebay had one but it sold before I could purchase, and the page has been empty for years), searched on Google since then, posted on scaleautomag, and still can't find one. I'll include a link to a scaleautomag build thread, as well as a couple pics of the body I'm looking for. Any offers, or info leading to this body would be very greatly appreciated. Also, if anyone has this body and would be willing to cast a copy for me to purchase, that'd also be quite alright. Thank you all in advance 😁 Build thread for reference: http://cs.scaleautomag.com/sca/modeling_subjects/f/35/t/38646.aspx Notice the steeper angle of the rear windshield and the longer roof, as opposed to the two door. Front end, rear end, and new 4 door panel/pillars would be all I'd need body wise, if I can get ahold of this body.
  8. Just arrived is this Danbury Mint Dodge D100 Sweptside pickup truck. I found it for a very reasonable price and could not resist having been turned onto trucks by Tim's Budweiser collection. Overall I am very pleased with it but found the low price may have been influenced by some rash on the top of the cab. Have not decided yet whether to try and buff out the rash.
  9. I built all of these Challengers, previously posted, in one batch. It allowed me to mix and match parts for the options desired on each. They were all painted in the same week. Having so many at once allowed me to build efficiently and gave freshly glued or painted parts time to dry before being handled again. Their completion resulted in a rainbow of E-bodies.
  10. The Charger Squad. The Hemi Orange 69 I built a few years ago, it fell off the shelf and still needs some parts put back on.
  11. This is my second 69 Dodge Super Bee build. The first one was built (in silver) to be a slot car body. This one is the mixture of a glue bomb and the left overs from the slot car. . The wheels are custom one-offs built by marrying the 10 spokes from a 77 Monte Carlo snap kit with a set of forked, spoked wheels from an undetermined BMW kit. I wish I had more so I could try different colors. The decals were quite a challenge as the were VERY old and may have gotten damp sometime in the past. I did the usual BMF and lighting details in red and amber. I researched the real car details so I could duplicate them on the grille and tail panels. Overall the finished product came out pretty well.
  12. Preliminary box art for the forthcoming 1/25 MPC Dodge D-100 Pickup kit:
  13. Hi folks, I got this recently from a modelling mate as a built kit amongst other stuff. As we all know, these days these Jo-Han kits come very expensive when bought new, so I took the opportunity to get this one at a very fair price, although it took quite some work because the front quarters had heavy dents on both sides since the kit was new. Of course, repairing those spots meant losing the beautiful "Dart 440" enblems, but that was the price to pay. I sanded down those spots and used Tamiya putty and sandable superglue for filling the dents. Then again sanding to make it fit to the body's contours. The result turned out okay in my eyes. Your feedback, as always, will be appreciated.
  14. The last today. One of my favorits in my collection, Also a kit from Revell what made a lot of fun to build. I built it in October last year and primary i bought it because of the very cool decals. But the decals were not to old, no, they broke, when i put it into the water. Irreparably. So i built it in Street legal version. Last week i took him again and made it lower to the groung. Looks better for me. Enough of words, here we go - Pictures please: ...
  15. My entry is going to be a 1958 Dodge W500 fire engine used by the US Forest Service. The truck on the far left is what I'm going for, although that is a '59 which has a different grill. I will be starting with a resin cab from SELtd and most of the rest will have to be kit bashed or scratchbuilt.
  16. Took a Lindberg Dodge Caravan and slab-sided it into a cool Surfie wagon. Built as a slammer, Fujimi wheels and tyres, custom paint job, homemade decals and balsa wood surfboards.
  17. Completed this morning. Not perfect but it is done. Painted in Tamiya Park Green with a black interior. The Hemi is from a Revell 67 Dodge Coronet kit. I wanted to use an AMT Hemi from the 68 Road Runner kit but the placement of the exhaust manifolds on the AMT heads did not line up properly with the exhaust pipes so I had to use one from a spare Coronet kit I had. "Hemi" door decals are from a spare Revell 68 Dodge Charger kit. Not much more to say, everything else came from the Daytona kit itself. Thanks for looking.
  18. Talk about polishing a turd. My dad got me this for Christmas and, if anyone knows me, I like stock vehicles. The Lindberg kit here is not stock. I ordered a Hart's Parts resin hood and got the stripes from eBay. I came out descent, but this kit is a nightmare of issues. The chassis is smaller than the body! I had to apply the glue and hold the body on the chassis for an hour to get it to stay on! The tail lights look horrible, the hood was glued shut because the engine wasn't stock, and I hate that there were no side mirrors. My stripes were also the wrong scale and I had to trim them. The sides are also wrong which caused an issue with the stripes as well. SAM_0447 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0448 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0449 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  19. The very first car model I ever tried to build was a Challenger T/A I got from Hungate's in Independence Mall Wilmington, NC. I always wanted to get another one and do it in Sublime green. I got a few gift cards and decided to use one of them to get this kit. It came out great. The kit is a pleasure to build.

  20. Been wanting one for the collection. Found resin parts from Hart's parts and found some stripes on ebay. Came out alright. The grill is a little warped and the rear end isn't exactly correct, but it does look pretty good for what it is.

  23. Hi all, here's another model I recently completed. Started in 2014, I lost motivation due to the quality of the plastic. This General Lee MPC kit was really poorly molded, even with quite a bit of bodywork there's still alot of defects that show through. I eventually decided to just paint it as is and at least get it off of the desk, which is why some areas are not perfect. I de-chromed everything on the chrome tree, and redid those parts with Alclad. The wheels I sprayed a Zero Paints gold and left them in a matte finish. The body is painted Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic with Tamiya Clear, and the interior the same Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic over black, matte finish. I chose not to do the rear panel black for something different, the rest is all stock. The most fun for me was the photoshoot and trying out new lighting techniques, it's there where the car really shines. Cheers!
  24. Revell 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, painted with Testors mystic green one coat lacquer and Testors wet look clear. White interior, basically box stock except for plug wires. Thanks for looking
