Good morning modellers, I'm starting a new project, '64 Malibu! 1: It's a resin kit, repop of the AMT original, so I won't be using much, mostly kit bashed. Here is the front grille/bumper and what I've done to it. 2: Cut the bumper separate. 3: Drilled out the headlights. 4: Made divets in scrap styrene with the Dremel bit shown. After I washed the grille with Tamiya black panel line wash. 5: Foiled over the divetted scraps and installed them from behind. 6, 7:Parking lights are Tamiya acrylic "Clear Orange", of course, you already knew that. Cheers
Hi guys, the AMC Gremlin I built in 2012 spent a lonely life in my display case, being the only compact car in there. In 2015, I thought: let´s build him a „brother“. I purchased an MPC (Round 2) 1978 AMC Pacer X kit and kitbashed it with AMT´s ´06 Chevy Camaro. The Camaro donored it´s wheels, seats, center console, steering wheel, engine, lower front pan, gas cap and the rear diffuser including the exhaust tips. Extra parts I added: ´90s Mustang mirrors, bumperettes, scratch built fuzzy dices, speakers in the door panels, NOS bottle in the flocked trunk and an additional exhaust pipe under the frame. I had to cut the in halves (at the height of the bumperettes) and insert a strip of styrene before gluing it back together to enlarge the wheel wells and to tunnelt he frame, otherwise the Camaro wheels and the front and rear parts wouldn´t fit. The last picture shows it with it´s older brother, the Gremlin. Hope you like my little goldfish bowl. Thanks for looking, comments are always welcome.
