Scale I Build

  1. My first new vehicle (I was 45) was a 1989 Ford Mustang LX 5.0. It was my mid life crazy car, only taken out on good days, etc. I did all the usual upgrades popular at that time, and it was a lot of fun. So I wanted to build one just like it and got the Revell 5.0 drag race version - number 85-4195. It has the stock parts, and I am building it as such. The problem is, while it includes the stock parts, there is no mention of them in the instructions. Of course most of them are intuitive, but the underpinnings (i.e. suspension, steering) are a bit confusing. I understand that this is a sister kit of the Revell Police Intercepter Mustang, which does give instructions that would be useful to me. I tried Revell's website, Ebay, Google and Youtube to get the instructions, but to no avail. So my question is........how can I obtain a copy of those instructions? Your help would be greatly appreciated! Bill Retired guy in Spring Texas.............
  2. This is my first procharger I built. the motor in this car is really special because it is scratch bulit out of styrene sheets.
  3. So a few weeks ago I was getting ready to put my old build up for sale then a paint can can fell on it. This forced me to rebuild the car with the extra mclaren body I had, but I’m not going to sell it. I’m trying to step up my chassis skills with this build as long with the entire detail of the car.
  4. When you love something you don't leave it. Well when you build you build a model you like, you build it again and again and that is what this project is about. I have done this one about 5 times. I did the motorcraft 3 times, the folgers twice. 3 I sold and two end up in a part box. But I wanted to start having a build collection. I have many but in boxes still and when I get a deal I buy them. Love the wheels and other parts for other racing projects. But I wanted to build it for me so I started to do more reserch on the car I found great references and now with more paciens and experience on the kit I decided to go for it.
  5. My latest completion. A Revell SCCA MUSTANG. I think it raced back in 91 or so in the Trans Am Series. I added some extra details not included in the kit. Also corrected the front clip, attaching the front spoiler to the chasie and covering the scribe lines from the hood lines. the race car does not have that. the seat belts and net and toe loops are scratch built, the kits decals were ruined so I got a new set from indycals.

    SVO Mustang

    Ain't sure about the year, but this was one of many Mustang models I built. Some kinda kick-ass turbo 4 cylinder.
  7. I wonder if the tooling still exists for the ol' Monogram 1/32 scale Datsun Pickup ? How about the others ? 1955 Chevy , 1979 Mustang , etc. , etc. ? These would be fantastic slump-busters !
  8. Another Norm Beechey car. This was the first ever Ford Mustang in the world to win a touring car race. The AMT Mustang kit was built pretty much out of the box. The plain steel wheels were detailed and tyres taken from my parts box. Decals are Patto's Place and paint is rattle can. The rear of the grille was sanded down and replaced with a fine mesh. The piece under the front bumper represents an oil cooler and the stance mirrors the real car. The window glass was replaced with clear acetate all round.
  9. AMT 1994 Ford Mustang GT built pretty much OOB but swapped the wheels out for Fujimi aftermarket units along with meaty disc brakes behind. Body badges cast separately using silicon molds and liquid styrene, then painted silver. Side scoops and bonnet vents opened up. Rattle can yellow exterior and black interior.
  10. Good morning all, I finally was able to get back to the bench after a long absence do to shoulder surgery and I jumped in with the new Boss 302 kit from Revell I did like this kit and thought it went together well I started by adding the basic plug wires and heater hoses but didn't go to extreme on details as I really was using only 1 arm then at the advise of my Brother inlaw I went with a Calypso Coral paint scheme i am happy with the way it turned out please enjoy and any comments or critiques are always welcome Thank you
  11. MPC Mustang FC 72 (HOTROD MAGAZINE) this was my 1st detailed build & contest entree. I installed every aftermarket plumbing, Aluminum Billet pulleys, A/N color coded fittings, Wrinkle Wall Slicks, even added the Chrome Valve Stems on it...for a EXTREMELY SIMPLE "BOX STOCK" build that would only take most beginners a few days to complete, took me about 350+ hours...(and I still wished I had 25-30 more to do everything that was in my head.. I had nothing but FUN all the way through.....
  12. Hi folks, I finished this kit recently. As we all know, unfortunately there is only a Revell snap-kit for this 6th generation of the Pony. That kit isn't bad at all as a snapper and it sure has a nice body shape, but of course, it lacks a lot of details. That's why I put some work into it as follows: - lowered the body - added 19" rims + tyres - added brake discs from the spare parts bin - added windscreen wipers from the spare parts bin - added interior mirror from the spare parts bin - added exterior mirrors from the Shelby GT 500 kit - drilled the exhaust area open and added metal ferrules - added selfmade headlight printouts in tinted look in order to replace the horrible kit's parts I used Tamiya TS-101 primer to cover the kit's red plastic. I then painted the body using Tamiya dark metaillic Blue TS-53, cleared with Testors Wet Look. 'Nuff said, hope you like it: On the left hand side, you can see the "basic product", built by my son in 15 minutes. It took me 15 days to get my own done...
  13. Hey, everyone!, I just wanted to show you the shifter I made for a friend. It was a fun project - in itself...a model all its own...Hope you like, thanks for looking!!
  14. When I found out that this model was coming out I almost cried. If it wasn't for the 1969 Mustang I would never have become a car guy and would never have gotten into model car building. By chance, one Sunday while getting ready for church, I passed a show on SPEED TV called the American Muscle Car and the 1969 Mustang was the subject of the show. They made the car sound like the greatest thing ever built and I became hooked on cars from that day forward. I watched the show every week, absorbing as much knowledge as I could. The color is Blue Angels Yellow. I had two issues with an otherwise excellent kit. The hood did not fit right, and the stripes for the hood got messed up, so i have to order new ones. Haven't had a chance to put on the clear coat yet. SAM_0450 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0451 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  15. My favorite 4 eye. Color is Ford mineral grey. Updated the engine with and 87 Thunderbird turbo coupe, and added front intercooler
  16. Hello, I start a new BB. The conversion is already in full swing. This Mustang will come along with the 5.0L engine of the 2014 Mustang GT and many other modifications. I started with the modification of the rear panel to mount other taillights. The part is from an Overtuned Maisto Mustang. Then I started to modify the engine compartment. Here I removed the battery, straightened everything with a sheet and filled with (my) version of GAP. It has also begun to make room for wider wheels. Then I have ever engine parts wrapped in color. And the engine itself too.
  17. Revell kit mostly OOB, but had some simplified bits (which are actually carry overs from the snap-tite Shinoda Boss kit) swapped out with guts from the '99 Cobra. Front suspension was missing springs and shocks, so that and IRS came from the 99. However, while the interiors are the same sans small differences in door panels and seats, the SS's chassis had to be swapped with the Cobra's as the former had indents that were meant for the solid rear axle setup and wouldn't work with the IRS. My kit despite being sealed, had a horribly deformed (short shot?) steering wheel, so I found a replacement parts one from what appears to be a Monogram '70 Mustang Boss. The one off 5.4 DOHC engine (just DOHC heads on a SOHC truck 2 valve motor, which is different than the 4.6) while somewhat simplified and based on the 5.0 in the Shinoda Boss, was used as is considering you won't see much of it with the supercharger and all. However, the '99 Cobra's exhaust had to have the tips trimmed so it would not interfere with the body-to-frame fit frame and also had the tranny cross-member at a different place and shape and wouldn't work with the 5.4. So out went that and in came the brace from the Super Stallion chassis that was cut and placed to aprox it's original location. Paint is Testors Color Shift Emerald Turquoise cleared with Pledge. Color looks like a metal flake British Racing Green in the pics, though in certain lighting you can see somewhat of a shift to Blue.
  18. So I purchased this kit and decided to give it a go I haven't done much yet and most of my progress will be slow due to Life Stuff. If your patient with me you might enjoy the ride. <= car joke So first thing I did was drill out the door handles I then primed it (no pics of that) My real Issue is what to build!! Do I build the Mach 1, the Boss 302 or a Modified Boss 302? Here is the 351ci Mach 1 Engine vs the Boss 302 Engine Keep watching
  19. My first build in years since getting back into model cars recently. First time posting here. Thanks for looking.

  21. There was a thread talking about Greg Wahn's Eleanor and I didn't want to hi jack the thread by posting pics of it on there..... Greg's casting of the iconic movie Gone In 60 Seconds 2 is one of the best castings I've seen!!! As of these photos the car is near done!!! Just havle to put headlights in, strut tower braces and the three bar code spinners on the wheels!!!! Photos do not do this car justice!!!!! I used 32 Ford headlight buckets for the build, photoetched grille, three bar spinners. I can get some better pics up later if anyone wants me to!!!!! the paint is the actual color of the real car..... I also used Keith Marks GT 500 decal set...
  22. just an update on this mustang build. it should be done soon
