Scale I Build

  1. Preliminary box art for the forthcoming 1/25 MPC Dodge D-100 Pickup kit:
  2. Here's my finished version of the Moebius 66 Ford F-100 short bed pickup which is based on the second round test shot. The tooling is about 95% ready to go at this point and final test shots should be available shortly. Colors I used are Rangoon Red over Wimbledon White. Still waiting on the decals which will include some scripts which are missing from my build up. Moebius is shooting for the first release to be before the end of the year, most likely it will be the 66 Flareside version. Look for a display of these kits at the Detroit Show coming up next month. -Steve
  3. Well here i am again, starting another model. I happen to be a fan of strange/uncommon cars and engines, which makes this build super interesting for me! The plans are to lower the truck, add some cool fender flares, and some killer wheels. But you cant have a ridiculous truck without a ridiculous engine, i'm currently torn between four engine choices (1994 Corvette Ls, 1968-73 Corvette engine, adding a supercharger to the stock 4 banger) I'm now out of school working full time, so progress may be slow but hopefully I can keep progress onthis one.
  4. Alrighty then, Haven't posted here for a while. I'm primarily a rc scale ship guy, but have always loved model cars. Every now and then I get an idea based on everyday life, and here it is. Started with the MPC '75 Datsun pickup kit; made the flatbed from styrene sheet/strip. The porta-potty is a resin item from Scale Equipment. This a curbside, so no under the hood shots. I stripped the kit mag wheels, and sprayed them flat white, with a healthy coating of rust/dirt. The body is Model Master flat medium blue rattle can, with an undercoat of red oxide primer. Bumper/grill/mirrors were also sprayed white. additional rust was dry brushed on, as were some pastel chalks. I added a coffee thermos/flashlight/magazine to the cab seat. Pretty quick build, needed something to get the model car juices going again. All comments/criticism/theats are welcome. Mark
  5. Should be out within the next two months or so. Excellent choice for the box art. Original issue, for comparison:
  6. This scary little puppy is finished! My goal was to have it on the table at the Philly NNL last Saturday and I managed to finish it up Friday afternoon with time to spare! This is a project started back in 2008, revisited in 2012 and finally put on the bench with intent of finishing it about a month ago. I had asked friends for suggestions on a number of details and incorporated a lot of their feedback into the final model. Falcon Ranchero bed.. some guys at the Philly NNL thought I used the bed from the 1/32 Ranchero, but no it's a sliced and diced bed from the 1/25 version. New Jersey plate was one I already had made up, placed on the vehicle hastily to look complete. I reserve the right to change it to a personalized one someday in the future! Friends suggested bomber seats, so I grabbed the set that was in the recent Revell Model A chopped coupe. Clear steering wheel came out of an AMT Riviera, parking brake is VW. Console is '57 Ford custom unit whittled to fit. I drilled in some cup holders because I go nowhere without my big cup of coffee! I gave some details to the dirty underside. The exhaust is the stock set that came on the custom 1950 Ford pickup, only cut right behind the mufflers. I added some chrome ends that probably were intake parts in their previous life. Here she is sitting next to my stock 1950 Ford pickup just to illustrate how modified she really is! The body was sectioned and once the top was removed the windshield was chopped as well. Maybe I should have cut a bit more off of that! And she's shorter too! I had taken a bit out of the chassis length. In this last shot you can see how I raised the engine up a bit so that the injectors came through the hood. This is a fixed panel, reminiscent of those old pickups with the two sided hood. That is the flatty with the Ardun heads that came with the kit. So in the end we have this crazy little rod. And the voices in my head are pleased!
  7. With all the excitement prior to the 24 Hour Build I literally forgot to take photos and post a model I had completed the year before! This was my 24 Hour Build project for 2014, that I didn't complete. In this photo you can see when I packed it in at 6:14 am on Sunday. There were things I didn't like about it, and knew I didn't want to finish it that way. One of the things you may notice are the HUGE almost working hinges in this kit. I had already built a Jimmy Flintstone resin van and he had correct hinges. So I did glue the doors shut and add ones the right size made from Evergreen round. For my Christmas Amnesty Project, I had made a commitment to myself to attack all those 80-90% finished models on my project shelf. I had completed the Model A TROG racer as my last build of 2018, and had moved right onto the Dodge D50 US Navy pickup as my first build for 2019. So this one is my second completion this year, and the 24 Hour Build Model A woody pickup is the THIRD. Me? With three completions in January? Unheard of! LOL Paint is Testors One Coat Flaming Orange because I absolutely love the color. I had painted my '65 Barracuda a similar color back in 1978. The paint laid perfectly. I don't believe I even clear coated it. That is the stock position for the spare tire. The kit doesn't have a stock gas filler so I drilled a hole and added one from my parts box. I think this one was from the AMT '53 Ford Pickup. Of course I can complicate anything, so I got the bright idea of replacing the kit's stock exhaust with duals. So I took two of the kit's stock mufflers (from two kits) and fabricated most everything else from pieces and parts of exhaust systems I keep in a shoe box for this purpose. The tail pipe ends are from the Revell Dart kits. I drill out the parts and assemble it all with bits of straight pin. I fit it tight so I can adjust the parts on the car before finalizing with glue, same way you'd do before clamping on a 1:1 car. I don't remember where I swiped the bucket seats from back in 2014. I did remember that I sprayed them with cheap spray paint that didn't dry during the 24 Hours! Now five years later, they are dry! I had to make seat bases for them to sit in the van. With no time constraints, I decided to add some seat belts. Model Car Garage buckles that I added depth to with Evergreen. And correct 1/16" ribbon for the belts. I bought a lifetime supply of seat belts on eBay (5 dif color rolls) for $10. I made a custom plate for the occasion. The bumpers are the same color as the interior. And here's the pair sitting together. Note how the hinges match now! I'm happy to have finished this one!
  8. I want to make a model of my son's 1:1 1981 Chevy truck he inherited from my dad. I've got the body itself sorted out, including scratch building the camper shell, but I need to figure out the grille. I did a Google search and found a picture of a model with the correct grille. The grille looks like it is resin. I'm looking for that EXACT grille.
  9. First of all, I would like to say hello again to everybody here! It's been a long while since I've worked on any models. Now that the re-introduction's out of the way, I have a question: what kind of engine is in the AMT '79 Ford Firestone pickup? I have the Model King variant that was released about a decade ago, so I'm under the presumption that it has the same engine.
  10. Got the kit recently, no instructions. Just a copy is fine. Kit # 38163-1HD.
  11. Originally a Lindberg kit, now packaged under the AMT label, the 1/20 scale 1992 Toyota 4x4 Pickup should be available soon:
  12. Hi everybody, I am thinking about building a crew cab pickup and wanted to know what you think would be a good kit to use. It can be Ford, Chevy, Dodge, or anything else. I just want a kit that would be easy to build into a crew cab.
  13. Gonna give weathering a shot on this 53 Ford pickup. It's going to be a work truck and I'll be going with the salting technique over this rust colored primer.
  14. As you can see by the award plaque, this was built a while ago... testers Candy red over metallic red with decals from an IMSA monza kit. dats-am03 by Mike, on Flickr dats-am01 by Mike, on Flickr dats-am02 by Mike, on Flickr
  15. Here is an old thread fix caused by the botophucket debacle, Conceived and built in the 80's, it's going to get some attention to resolve some issues (like no back glass) after the Phantom Ranchero GT is done. Scan of photo taken in the mid 80's gremlin01 by Mike, on Flickr More recent photos with better camera gremlin04 by Mike, on Flickr gremlin07 by Mike, on Flickr gremlin03 by Mike, on Flickr gremlin05 by Mike, on Flickr IMG_3262 by Mike, on Flickr
  16. Here is a scan of a fuzzy photo from the 80's Some pics of the engine before changing to more "factory" options. Dual quads and manifold removed, going with single 4-bbl carb setup The body is already soaking in the purple pond, but it doesn't seem to be having any effect on thirty-something year old car paint, going to have to use brake fluid. Comments welcomed.
  17. Hello, here is another of my latest builds.. Brush paintjob and some details added..
  18. Good morning all... I am in need of some GMC rally wheels like this with the caps I have searched high and low and can not seem to find any. Any info on where I can source some or if any one has any to trade/sell let me know Thanks Mike
  19. Hello all! I am wondering if anybody knows if there was ever a kit made of 66 Ford F100 or F150 2WD any help would be great thanks
  20. Found an original Willys 1940 pickup truck, street rod version. Was seeing lots of remakes online, but the only one I saw with the original box was listed for $4000 on terapeak it looked like.. Looks to me like it's all original parts for the truck, did notice all of the wheel parts were not there. Was kind of just wondering what I had on my hands here. tried to include more pictures but it wasn't being kind to me. Parts in the bag, original manual and decals still there
  21. First and only completed kit of the year. It was a rush job to kinda build up confidence in the skill that I'm slacking. The body color is Testors One Coat Lacquer Mythical Maroon. I'll throw the decals on tomorrow. Hopefully it only gets better from here.
  22. What is the most accurate '73 to '87 kit out there? I just bought a Revell '77 GMC Wrecker Truck and was far less than impressed. The visor, sunroof, mirror holes, and incorrect rear window lower edge make this cab unuseable. Not to mention the cast-in engine block... However it was worth the price of admission for the one ton wheels and tires. Those are particularly difficult to source. What other pickups are out there which are more correct? I want to stay as stock as possible. I have the most interest in 1973 to '80 model years, prefer a 2WD if there is one, and I am okay with kit bashing. New guy here, so I hope I am not rehashing a question that has been answered before. But in my defense, I did multiple searches here and did not find the topic.
  23. Hello everyone, here is my latest project. This project started during or soon I find this picture. my idea to change the use of decals board provided last year. I thought of several ideas on a roof rack my woody, not big enough ... trailer ... and then I had the idea to change the COE delivery, the idea of the COE advertising was born ... realized in 3 weeks to participate in the NNL east. Mix Resin Delivery Ford COE at RMR and 50 Monogram Ford pickup. Tamiya paint varnish Hobby collor Wheels "Foose Nitrous II 1/24 19" and 21 '' at Scale of Production. wooden floor, with stirrers for coffee, glued 1/1 Inside the ford 50 shortcut billboard full scratch. here it is finished, old small box has the right size, cut and built 1/1, the kid just an old box of 59 buick amt etc ... and finally the final model exhibited at NNL WIP images WIP IN VIDEO
  24. I bought this a while ago, but I've only just got around to building it. I liked the look of the lace decals, even though the lace is a tad out-of-scale. Gold and purple always go well together, so I used purple candy over a silver base. The horrible kit wheels were replaced with some from a Polar Lights funny car. Now, I've heard it said that this kit has one of the worst Ford SOHC engines in 1/25, so I decided to pep it up a bit. I added resin pulley wheels, intake, oil filter and gear linkage. I also added a Mallory ignition module and rear disc brakes. The engine had no magneto, so I made one that looks kinda like a Vertex. A Detail Master 5-point harness and a fire extinguisher were added to the interior. I had to lift the pickup bed a bit to stop the rear arches rubbing the tyres. A note to anyone who plans to build this kit...The front axle is set too far back. The rear edges of the tyres would foul on the bodywork. I know some guys re-position the leaf springs, but I'd already painted the chassis and installed the axle before I realized my error. Luckily, I'd only fixed the front axle on with CA glue, so it came apart easily and I was able to fit it in a better position with epoxy. The kit decals were dead tricky. They seemed to stick fast, on contact with the paint. I managed to get them all on, but it was a sweaty hour. 'nuff blurb.. Here are the pics: Comments appreciated Hope you like it Thanks for looking
  25. Years ago I chopped a '37 cab (my first ever chop) and it didn't quite turn out right. Then I planned to use the cab to build a rat truck with an inline 6, but used that engine for another build. Every few months I get the cab out and mock it up with various engines and spare parts, but nothing ever came of it because I didn't have any frames that would work very well. I'd shortened the bed, but as the glue dried the panels warped. It went back in the box. A couple days ago, inspired by the trucks of Rudy Rodriguez and Ian Loska, among others, I decided to just make a frame, and go from there. So far, it's coming together fairly quickly. Some notes: -AMT '27 Touring front wheels and tires -Monogram classic rear tires on Monogram '30 ford wire wheels out back -Ford 9" from AMT 57 Corvette street machine -front axle from AMT '29 Ford roadster, modified with some bolt detail, scribed lines on the spindles, and plastic axle stubs -disc brakes from the junk pile. Calloway corvette, maybe? -resin Buick Nailhead from The Parts Box in Australia. -AMT '34 Ford grille The plan is for a fairly extreme neo-traditional rod. At this point I'm undecided if it will get shiny paint or patina, or a combination of both.
