Scale I Build

Found 6 results

  1. Builders When's Round2 going to put out one of these? Yes, they did get burned putting out the Styline kit. These were beginner kits for kids put out in the 60's. The cincher is to mold the kit in color, can be built without painting. These kits had hood molded in and metal axles. Note: you can fake them and just build kit without engine and just enough suspension parts to hold wheels up. Thanks!
  2. Just getting settled after moving last year. I picked up this kit I started a while back to knock the rust off and get something finished. It's the 1987 reissue of the Roadrunner kit. I picked this kit because it's the first model I remember my dad building when I was a kid, 40+ years ago I was disappointed then that he didn't use the Superbird parts ?. Dad's kit is long gone , but I'm building this one as an homage to that model that got me interested in this hobby. Dad usually just painted the body of a kit and then left everything else in bare plastic. The Roadrunner was metallic blue and he put this Roadrunner decal on the doors. Fortunately I found a set of original decals recently. I couldn't bear to leave anything in that nasty yellow plastic so I tried to keep it simple with a black interior and flat black chassis. It needs another coat of Tamiya blue, and I need to finish the engine, and pick out some details, but it's far enough along that I should be able to finish it up soon.
  3. hi all, I built this kit as a young teen, remember it well. back then I did it in white with a black interior and the billboard decals. this time around it's Moline Rouge [panther pink] and I think I will do a black and white interior. I have another one of these kits that will eventually be a copy of the one I did as a teen. I did some prep work on the body and got some of it in color today, lot to do, but it's started, more to come soon [i hope]...........
  4. Hey. I thought would finally put this up. I built this about 9 years ago as an my idea of what i would like to own as a late style sixties street rod. Its a very basic model not my most detailed or best finished build but one of my favourites never the less ! This is loosely based on what was being built in Australia at the time. After looking at lots of pictures of rods from the era, i noticed that there were some common themes on some of the higher end rods of the era, such as metal flake paint, chromed front and rear ends, white upholstery and firewalls and odd wheel tyre combinations. Starting with a resin body, fenders chassis, i sourced the parts from various different kits. The Y block came from the Lindberg 1/25 scale 1934 Ford Pick up,one the best kits ever made in my opinion ! Y blocks were the most popular choice of OHVs at the time in OZ because they were the most affordable. Small block chevs were still to expensive for most rodders at the time ! The chromed front and rear ends were from the Revell 1/25 scale 29 Model A Pick up. The wheel tyre combo was made up from about three different kits. The rears were from the 1/25 scale AMT 56 Victoria which also gave up its quick change rear and front wishbones, lots of good parts from this kit. The front wheels were the American Torque Thrusts from the ever reliable Revell 1/25 scale 32 3 window kit, with the tyres coming from the Revell 1/25 scale 31 Model Tudor. The grill is from an AMT 1/25 32 kit, not sure which one ! the headlight were made up from the 36 Ford buckets with Revell 1/25 scale 26 Model T Lenses ! I finished it off with Dupli Colour Automotive gold metal flake and clear clear.

  6. Just a few pics of a heavily modified Ivo dragster into a Nostalgia dragster. Has a Ross Gibson resin engine, Slixx rear tires and a lengthened chassis. I'll put some WIP pics up depending on interest, this is a very heavily modified version of the AMT Ivo kit.
