  1. Preliminary box art for the forthcoming 1/25 MPC Dodge D-100 Pickup kit:
  2. Hello.my next project 79〜81 dodge st regis. I plan to finish it as a police car.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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: ...
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  14. 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!
  15. 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
  16. With all the excitement prior to the 24 Hour Build I literally forgot to take photos and post a model I had completed the year before! This was my 24 Hour Build project for 2014, that I didn't complete. In this photo you can see when I packed it in at 6:14 am on Sunday. There were things I didn't like about it, and knew I didn't want to finish it that way. One of the things you may notice are the HUGE almost working hinges in this kit. I had already built a Jimmy Flintstone resin van and he had correct hinges. So I did glue the doors shut and add ones the right size made from Evergreen round. For my Christmas Amnesty Project, I had made a commitment to myself to attack all those 80-90% finished models on my project shelf. I had completed the Model A TROG racer as my last build of 2018, and had moved right onto the Dodge D50 US Navy pickup as my first build for 2019. So this one is my second completion this year, and the 24 Hour Build Model A woody pickup is the THIRD. Me? With three completions in January? Unheard of! LOL Paint is Testors One Coat Flaming Orange because I absolutely love the color. I had painted my '65 Barracuda a similar color back in 1978. The paint laid perfectly. I don't believe I even clear coated it. That is the stock position for the spare tire. The kit doesn't have a stock gas filler so I drilled a hole and added one from my parts box. I think this one was from the AMT '53 Ford Pickup. Of course I can complicate anything, so I got the bright idea of replacing the kit's stock exhaust with duals. So I took two of the kit's stock mufflers (from two kits) and fabricated most everything else from pieces and parts of exhaust systems I keep in a shoe box for this purpose. The tail pipe ends are from the Revell Dart kits. I drill out the parts and assemble it all with bits of straight pin. I fit it tight so I can adjust the parts on the car before finalizing with glue, same way you'd do before clamping on a 1:1 car. I don't remember where I swiped the bucket seats from back in 2014. I did remember that I sprayed them with cheap spray paint that didn't dry during the 24 Hours! Now five years later, they are dry! I had to make seat bases for them to sit in the van. With no time constraints, I decided to add some seat belts. Model Car Garage buckles that I added depth to with Evergreen. And correct 1/16" ribbon for the belts. I bought a lifetime supply of seat belts on eBay (5 dif color rolls) for $10. I made a custom plate for the occasion. The bumpers are the same color as the interior. And here's the pair sitting together. Note how the hinges match now! I'm happy to have finished this one!
  17. Painted Tamiya TS-11 Maroon Interior will be either black and white or maroon and white. Still got some fixing to do to the body. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  18. Yea, I've dug into my unfinished build pile and am finishing up some of those 80-90% finished models! There are ones I stopped working on out of frustration, and ones I have no idea why I shelved them. But I finished up the Valiant Stocker, the TROG Model A Phaeton and now this Dodge D-50 pickup. Back in the day I worked in a convenience store at the New Jersey shore near Earle Naval Depot. We had a lot of navy traffic in the store and these little pickups were always scooting around town. I was told they were used because they were taken on the ships and saved space. So I decided to build one for my 24 Hour Build project in 2017. I had some setbacks during the build, some of which had to do with fit of this kit. It is a nice little replica and the chassis detail is super nice. In fact I noticed it slid right up into my '40 Ford sedan delivery.. can a Turbo street rod be far off? What stopped me cold during the 24 Hour Build was the final fitment of the kit. After 20 hours of straight building, I just couldn't see where the issue was, so I called it quits. Coming back two years later with a clear head, I saw that the dashboard was too wide. I did some serious sanding on the ends and got the interior bucket to sit up in the body. That affects how the entire cab sits on the chassis. The rear pan on the pickup box was too narrow so I added some plastic to either end. I also did a lot of my drill and pinning to get the little pieces like hoses to fit and stay in place. The mirrors are also pinned in place. The model came with low wide tires and mag wheels. I needed it to be stock for the US Navy version. This little Mitsu pickup came with six lugs, so I stole the wheels and tires from a '57 Chevy Black Widow kit. I made my own decals. The paint color that worked best is actually Duplicolor sandable gray primer, with clear coat over it. Then I gave it a semi gloss overall finish. The mirrors appear too large to my eye, but they came with the kit. And I have to do something about those flat headlights! Part of the 24 Hour Build is to build something simple, not to add too much detail and try not to modify it a lot. It's also good to build a model that is expendable, so you aren't overly concerned about thrashing through a good kit. This D-50 fit the bill. It was for sale at my club meeting for the huge sum of $5, and I knew I had two more copies at home. The kit came with clear red tail lights, but the actual truck had the red - orange - white lenses. I covered the red clear units with Bare Metal Foil, then used paints for the colors. Stock Mitsubishi 4 banger under the hood. I didn't even wire it. There are a bunch of small delicate parts under the hood, so I did some detail painting on them. Chassis is also fairly nice with a lot of detail and working steering. I think I'll take one of my spare kits and see how this fares under a street rod! And my "I can't help myself!" detail was creating a dash insert. The interior was kind of stark and I knew I didn't want to try to detail paint the gauges. I started with a photo from a dealer brochure, and in the above photo you can see where I have deleted the steering wheel. The wheel was completely across the speedometer, so I copied the tach over into that space. In scale, and in the interior, nobody will notice it has two tachs! It's just printed on paper and white glued in place. If anyone wants a copy of the dashboard, I can email you a copy of the Word file I printed from. One thing that did baffle me a bit was that I repainted the hood and it's a lighter tone than the rest of the body. Then I checked my primer against the pain on the bed underside and it matches... the culprit must've been the Testors clear coat. I believe it's yellowed casting a slightly darker gray. So I took the freshly painted hood and did the same clear coat on it. Hopefully it will age to match in time. Hope you like it!
  19. here it is everybody. it is a revel 1968 dodge dart GSS painted Tamiya chrome silver. it has a wired distributer and the trim is the Molotow crome pen. it didn't turn out as good as I wanted but oh well its all a learning experience and the next one will be better. what do you think?
  20. Back from a long time of not being able to post on here.
  21. Pretty much the same kit as the Sheriff Roscoe's Police Car (MPC 707) reissued a few year ago, this time with new box art and a resin Joker figure. "Stock Dodge Monaco" might be a bit of a stretch with the super-deep steel wheels and matching tires, though...
  22. Built this a few years ago. I ended up displaying it in a mode l shop near where I live. Unfortunately the guy who owned the shop ended up closing, and stole 8 of my models including this one. Today all I have is pictures, but at least I hope its under somebody's glass somewhere.
  23. I finally finished my Linburg Rammunition Monster Truck diorama. The kit was pretty easy and went together easily. This was my first model with a roll cage and fitting it together concerned me a bit, but it just slide together and required no cursing at all. What made it best was the $9.99 price tag from Olies. The crushed cars are my first also and it was also my first time spattering mud/sand. Thanks for looking
  24. Re-painted the grill and did some touch ups. SAM_2543 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2544 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2545 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  25. I understand this isn't for the faint of heart Mopar nuts and some of ya are gonna spout out "YOU PUT A WHAT IN THAT POOR OLD DODGE?!". But, since the 330 had a slant six on the base models this combo pays a modern homage to those slant sixers with a twist. This was the AMT boxed Lindberg kit i got on markdown for $7.50 at HL, and since I rarely do things OOB I brainstormed some customizing ideas on what to do with it. I found a resin 2JZ and resin turbos that a friend gave me a while back in my stash and that got the spark going for my next project on top of a closet full of kits i plan to chip away at. Interior is Testors light gray rattle can and basically OOB, added a dash gauge cluster piece (from a Revell pro stock of some sort) and a 57 'Vette steering wheel with a custom stick on the steering column to replicate a shiftier on the wheel type config. 2JZ resin motor has resin twin turbos mounted on modified headers from a Ferrari Boxer 12, plastic tubing as intake pipes, and a custom side exhaust made from a Mustang muffler and Lamborghini exhaust tips. Cadiator from a AMT Dodge Viper, and suspension is pretty much stock but added new drive shaft to go to 2JZ tranny and modified engine mounts on suspension and transmission brace. Wheels and tires are from a AMT Dodge Concept Car builder (that looked as some child did his/her own "crash testing" as it's body all broken, but wheels were intact for only $1). Paint is Tamiya TS-60 Pearl Green cleared with Pledge, and the frame is Krylon Stainless Steel Finish. I also added a Japanese Licence plate from a Aoshima Skyline of some sort because why not. To those who appreciate homages, I hope you enjoy!
