Scale I Build

Found 5 results

  1. Recent "Original Art" series reissue of AMT 1/25th scale kit. Modifications as followed: Custom "Aero" front and rear bumper parts that came with Monza were used. GTO style hoot tach bump from unknown source. Most of LT1 motor from AMT '94 Camaro manifold; oil pan and water pump/pulley pieces came from AMT Monza V8 Custom headers (may have been the ones for the 350 turbo setup) from a MPC 82 Knight Rider Firebird Custom side exhaust made from scrap plastic sprue and muffler+tip from unknown subject Ricardo like seats and shiftier from MPC '70 Super Bee Pro Street Kit came with 3 dashboards, one was a newly tooled piece with better details that was used. Little did I know it was such a poor fitting piece that it required trimming to get in the grooves in the door panels. It worked out, but still Round 2 double check these things! Wheels are custom ones from a Revell '50 Ford F-150, painted Rustoluem Metallics Pure Gold. Front suspension was lowered as it sat too high, rear was left as-is. Yet again, front tires are from a Revell Acura RSX, and the wider rears come from what could be an AMT Fast and Furious Veilside Toyota Supra. Brakes are from a Revell 4th Gen Camaro Interior paint is Krylon Rose Gold Metallic; exterior paint is Rustoluem Color Shift Galaxy Blue cleared with Pledge.

  2. Convert your IKEA or similar shelf to display your 1:64, 1:25, 1:24, 1:18 scale diecast and plastic models cars / bikes for super CHEAP!! I have a yt video on how I built it, not sure if I'm allowed to post that. Thanks all!
  3. I really do have a thing for curbside models. I'm waiting to tackle a couple of clearance issues with the Chevelle, so thought I'd play with this thing, for a while. Obviously, it's a promo--I ain't afraid to modify them! I've accrued a few of them, over the years, because I've always loved the styling of this car since GM introduced it (I love Vegas, too!)--too bad the underpinnings weren't better. That said, I've also been hankering to build something road-racing inspired. I like the looks of the early Trans Am series cars. Unfortunately, by the time the Monza was introduced, "IMSA" flares were en-vogue, and I'm not nuts about those. So, I decided to build this as a street car with early T/A influences. I've removed the rear seat and covered that area. I'll probably replace the floor, as well. I've begun work on a basic rollbar assembly. It'll get a pair of racing seats, and a cleaned-up dash. I'm going with these Minilite wheels (I found them on Ebay, last year. They're very nice!). Tires are from the AMT parts packs. I will put disc brakes at all four corners--one thing I enjoy when I build curbside models is adding as much detail as I can, while still keeping it curbside (don't turn it over; it'll retain the promo chassis!) You can see the aluminum chin spoiler, and, I'll add a simple spoiler to the rear, as well. Not much done, so far, but here's a first look! Comments and questions welcome!
  4. The link here is the Build thread of this one.. now to show you the finished build!! Hope you like, comments welcome! I added the sticker on the side to support my daughter who has Kabuki Syndrome!
  5. My wife used to have a '77 Chevy Monza so I got one of the Monza re-releases the other day. It doesn't have the 4 cyl engine, but the rest of the kit looks decent enough to build like hers was. Does anyone know where I can get one or does someone have good pictures of all four sides so I can? A lengthy google search was unsuccessful, I only found a good picture of the passenger side. If this is in the wrong forum, please move it mods.
