Scale I Build

Found 18 results

  1. Built from this kit Which also had custom parts for the George Barris hot rod version. Some of the customizing parts looked goofy or didn't fit very well, so I sourced some bits and such from the spares bins to make a modern pickup rod. Mods as followed: Independent front suspension made from Ferarri Enzo pieces and Monogram 1992 Corvette A arms Monogram 1992 Corvette also gave it's independent rear suspension + axle. Wheels and tires are from a Revell Motor City Muscle '69 Shelby GT500. Disc brakes are from a Hummer H2 Kit's custom exhaust was lengthened at the end using pieces from Revell Shelby Series one kit had a wooden style flat bed, or a bed that had seats going on it but no side pieces, which isn't street legal. An AMT 1953 Ford F150 pickup bed was used with a custom rear clear tailgate made using a Hummer H2 rear window cut down to fit Exterior paint is Tamiya TS-58 Pearl Light Blue over Rustoluem Silver, cleared with Pledge.
  2. Now finished! Mods are as followed: Chevy 350 LT1 block (painted Tamiya TS 74 Clear Red over Rustoluem Bright Silver) and transmission from Revell 4th Gen Camaro Z28 Corvette LT1 heads, headers, and waterpump/fan belts from Monogram '92 Corvette Convertible. Edlebrock valve covers from AMT 34 Ford parts Roots drag supercharger from AMT Silhouette, intake made from ribbed muffler system of unknown source Twin Turbos from TheGameBoy Resins, and air filters from spares bin sources. Radiator/intercooler looks to be from a Monogram Nascar piece and intake pipes were made from from plastic tree sprue Side exhaust from Monogram '70 Challenger T/A Rear axle from AMT 70 Monte Carlo, some other suspension parts from '90 Mustang Drag parts. Driveshaft made from long sprue and sway bars from spares bin sources Bucket seats from Revell C5 Corvette and steering wheel from Monogram '71 Hemi Cuda. NOS bottle (also painted Tamiya TS 74 Clear Red over Rustoluem Bright Silver) and side mirror are from unknown sources from the spares bin Wheels and tires are large profile custom mag wheels from Revell '66 Chevelle Wagon. Disc brakes are from Monogram '92 Corvette Convertible Decals are source from random unused sheets. Interior is Rustoluem "Advanced Formula" Flat Brown, and exterior and floor pan are painted Rustoluem Metallic Black cleared with Pledge
  3. This AMT '66 Olds started life as a very old build crica 2009. It was a mild custom painted a similar red like on the box, and had a LS1 swap from a Revell 2002 Camaro with "20 mag wheels from a Revell 66 Chevelle SS Wagon. At some point it was mined for parts, mainly the wheels and LS1 motor, to go on other projects. After a few years of sitting on the shelf in pieces, it ended up scrapped in a storage crate until being found in a parts hunt very recently. Surprisingly, most of the essential parts were there even the front+ rear glass, which is rare when finding parts to resurrect an old build. Unfortunately, I could not find the hood and the rear suspension along with small bits like the clear front lenses and clear red taillights were missing. I couldn't find the kit's 442's W30 motor it originally came with (might have given it to a club member in a trade for wheels) and I didn't feel like raiding my other mint kit for it, so I had gathered up an LT1 using a Revell 4th Gen Trans Am for the block and a Monogram '92 Corvette for the heads and fan belt/water pump setup (Monogram's Corvette motor had an auto trans and wouldn't fit properly in the Old's frame). I know it's a Chevy motor in a Olds, but it's the only complete setup I could find that would fit without major work. While I was able to find clear front lenses and make taillights from clear styrene pieces, I still couldn't find the hood after I had stripped the rest in the purple bath and that was gonna be an issue. I couldn't see myself raiding the hood from one of the mint kits in my stash (that I also plan to build someday) and refused to succumb to Ebay prices just for the hood alone. As I came up with ideas I remembered a crazy looking 67 Chevelle I saw at a car show back in 2009 that, apparently had no hood, but contained a big block Chevy with not only a fuel injected Roots high rise Supercharger with plumbing to the radiator, but was also twin turbocharged and appeared to have had the intercooler built in in the radiator. With that idea brewing, I got to work on parts hunting! I gathered up a flat manifold from an AMT Chevy 350 motor of some subject, a Roots Supercharger from the AMT Silhouette, and pulley belts from the Revell '68 Firebird's optional supercharger setup. I also sourced different 350 LT1 headers and placed them upside down to put the two resin turbos on. After finding some more tidbits and other '92 Corvette parts, there is where i'm at The front suspension was mostly intact, just needed new springs and spindles. I also cooked up a 4 link style rear suspension and plan to add a side exhaust system from an old Monogrma '71 Cuda built up. I had also found a matching set of the custom wheels from the Revell 66 Chevelle SS Wagon that were originally used and used brakes from the Monogram '92 Corvette. I had set a right height setup that looks dope dayumm, but forgot to take pics of it before I got it ready for paint! More to come soon
  4. The major mods to the 69 Hurst Olds convertible body are complete! I’m liking the way it looks so far! I’m using the ‘72 Indianapolis Olds convertible as a donor kit. I worked from the front of the car to the back. Reason being, the windshield dictates were the up-top will live. The underside of the cowl has mounting pins for the windshield. Next I narrowed the rear seat. For now the interior is mocked up with the ‘72 side panels. Windsield temporarily mounted. With the up-top in place, I could get a feel for where the tulip panel would live. The tulip panel all trimmed up. Here are a bunch of mock-up pictures. Hope you all like it! All questions and comments always welcome!
  5. I enjoyed this kit, I've never owned it before and like Oldsmobiles. Fit was fine, not one issue. Decals are great, went on smooth. Only issue was hand painting the loooonnnggggg chrome strip down the fenders and up around the windows, but the molding is prominent enough to let you do it with a good paint marker dragged sideways. (I don't do BMF) You get four of the new Firestone Wide Oval tires and two Goodyear blue stripe slicks too. Two wheel options, stock and custom.

    '66 Olds 442

    I've been away from modelling for a while. This is the first kit I've worked on in 15 years... This kit went together really well. I had no problems with any of the fitment. This was a great kit to get back into the hobby with. The color is Duplicolor GM Blue (lacquer). The top is Rustoleum white (enamel).First I sprayed the car with blue then tried to spray the white. Big nono. As you may guessed, the white paint cracked. It took me a minute to figure out what happened. Then I fixed my situation. I also invested in a lighted magnifier. Best purchase ever! Thanks for looking
  7. Original, in the box JoHan kit. Added Modelhaus whitewall tires, scratchbuilt rearview mirror, and fender antenna. Power window switches and seat belt hardware courtesy of Model Car Garage. Added vinyl top with strip plastic and textured paint. Duplicolor paint was used under DuPont two-part clear. Front and rear bumpers replated. Thanks for looking!
  8. I have this kit now and have done a video review of the parts. Enjoy.
  9. This one has always been one of my favorites a Johan 1975 Olds Cutlass Snap-Kit Built up like a weekend Bracket Racer
  10. Here is my last build, a 1950 Oldsmobile. This one is not for me, but for a guy in California who wanted a car, like if it spent a lot of years near woods in Oregon. So a rusty and very weathered car. The kit is from a 1/25 Revell box, but the body is a resin. Pictures ! A lot of parts are missing on that car, chromes, hubcaps, the interior is almost dismantled, there are some parts from other cars.
  11. I wanted to make it like a car I would want to own. I've always thought black was a good color for cars of this era; so I went with a gloss black color for the car. I kept it classy with a white interior. I wanted it to have kind of a hot-rod, moonshiner type car.
  12. Was looking at some of the parts this person is selling on Ebay and they look familiar. Wanted to get the pro street tubs. Anyone get parts from this Castenparts person and if so, how was delivery and quality? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Resin-Pro-Street-Back-Half-Chassis-W-Tubs-/221309191326?pt=Model_Kit_US&hash=item33870e449e
  13. What are the chances of getting hold off or made the front end and rear bumper from this kit? I going to do an attempt at build an Holiday coupe out of the Johan Starfire kit. Will be using the 64 Impala roof. But the most important part is the lights,grill and bumper. This is the car i want to make: http://www.iagclassics.com/carpages/1963-Olds-Dynamic-88-White-For-Sale.html (Image credit: Dave Lindsay on fotki)
  14. I really liked this one.
  15. So I just finished my 1950 Olds barn find survivor car. This is what I would do to this particular car if I found it in a barn somewhere. Clean chrome, basic interior, but fully functional with the patina intact. Hope you guys like it!
  16. I built this Jo-Han '70 Oldsmobile box stock in 2003. I forget where I found this kit, but was thrilled to get it and get it cheap, I think around $10 - $15. It's not much to look at and Jo-Han didn't offer as much detail as AMT, Revell or even MPC, but I did love their kits. The body was painted a nice late 60's, early 70's green and the engine compartment flat black. The engine was painted red, even though it's hard to see here in this photo. Sadly, this guy fell off the shelf a few years ago and a small piece of the rear quarter panel chipped off.
  17. We got one or two of these kits in at work and I've never seen it before in nearly 2 decades of screwing around with plastic and 14 years of working for retailers that carry kits It's an AMT Olds 442 that apppears to be a well detailed, modern tool, made like the AMT '67 Impala's separate frame and all form what the box art shows! http://round2models.com/models/amt/66olds-442 Was this one ever released and I just missed it, was it lost in the shuffle of the Racing Champions takeover and just never released until now under the Round 2 label, or is this a newly tooled kit from Round 2 under the AMT label:blink:
  18. Hi fellows today i want to show you another work, if a car tells a story - like my bulli "Horst" does. This i built in April 2010 and it was my first model, that i opened the doors. And, till a hardtopcoupe isn't hard enough, i made it with a convertible. Why? Of course, it belongs to the story: This Olds is in a garage, they want to sale it. But, this stupid mechanic, how wants to change the sparkplugs, does nothing but s***. He has demolished a sparkplug. So he must pay for his own foolishness and repair it. The second guy has to clean up the car all over, but he is thinking, he has enough time to make a rest - not even the windshield is done... Take a look - their are some pics more... ...to be continued...
