  1. 71 Plymouth Duster

    finished the duster last night
  2. Started way back in 2002, it is painted with some Testors' enamel green metallic that I don't remember the name of, but like the color. I was never happy with the black stripes but you know, it's either get rid of it or complete it, so I'm going to complete it. 440 six pack from the kit. I had to trim the inside of the air cleaner to fit and also trim off some of the transmission where it fits in the crossmember to get it all to fit properly. I've waited so long to get this built, the windshield frame has bowed. I am hoping I can straighten this out when I put the front glass in. Thanks for looking, comments welcomed.
  3. 65 Satellite

    Started it months ago, but never got the chance to post it. Came out OK, but spilt some black paint on the grill, so i just went ahead and made the grill all black after one I saw online.

  5. AMT's 1/25 scale '71 Plymouth Duster 340, coming in late 2018:
  6. Hey everyone!, this is an exact replica of my REAL Duster just after I finished doing the bodywork on it. Its very special to me because it was my birth year, AND the first model year of it. Since there wasn't an actual 1970 kit, I had to SB a few changes.....the front grille, taillights, and dash, are some of the things. Its totally detailed, and ALL the wiring is laying exactly as it was. The taillights are too reflective for back then, but I will have that corrected when I build it after it came out of the paint shop.
  7. The best $50 I have ever spent

    Today I got the 1967ish Plymouth satellite for $50. I have now fulfilled a dream of mine to own a 60s mopar muscle car and I am crazy happy!!!!!!! I will be posting some pics of the car on a local drag race Facebook group in on to see if anyone can identify the car so I can get some more info on it and try and learn some history on it. Unfortunately the hood was used as a trailer for behind a quad/snowmobile. Mid you have any question I will do my best to try and answer them. the car will be called the Satellite that fell out of orbit.
  8. As far as I know it is a Plymouth satellite but would like to know if it is a factory paint job and if so how rare it is.
  9. 68 GTX grille

    I acquired a 68 roadrunner model and would like to know if anyone knows of a place I can buy a 68 gtx grille for my rr it is 1/25 if anyone knows anything or has some information it would be greatly appreciated
  10. 1965 Plymouth Belvedere I "The Villain"

    Finally finished the 1965 Plymouth Belvedere I by Moebius Models...known as the Villain. For pics of this build check out the On the bench section here. Here are pics from the final resulting build. Also, you can see more on this build on youtube at https://youtu.be/_oswBSc9HEA
  11. While I tend to focus mostly on Fords, sometimes I like something a little different. Saw this AMT 1941 Plymouth Four Passenger Coupe on clearance at Hobby Lobby, and decided to take a chance. So here are the first few shots, starting with the engine build. While I'm going with the stock engine, I am making a few mods to it, like spacing the intake and exhaust off of the block slightly and adding the two missing exhaust bits on the manifold. Other scratch parts include the the bracket for the oil sump air filter, the top mounted horn, relocating the generator bracket to the top of the generator, and the distributor. The bits on the "ground" are the upper and lower radiator hoses and the "glass" fuel filter. The bit in the tweezers is a scratch up of the steering box and column to tie into the kit column at the firewall. Still need to wire it and plumb it, decide on the finish for the oil pan, and scratch up one more little detail forward of the thermostat housing and bolt heads for the fan. Still, not a bad couple of hours so far. The hoses are some rubber coated twist-tie wire that was holding something in some packaging. and the fuel filter is two tiny pieces of clear sprue. All of the other scratched bits are styrene sheet, rod and tube. Thanks for looking, and as always, comments are welcome. T.
  12. Hi everyone I've been building and scrapping this build for going on 3 years. This is my first model build I've ever done. I would love to get ideas, help, or any other feedback to help me move this baby along. I have a bunch of ideas I want to incorporate into it from some of my favorite builds. So far I'm going to be making a efi itb dodge NASCAR engine. I made the wide 5 wheels from some wheels off of eBay. I think I definitely need some kind of flares to widen the stance (I think it looks too narrow under the stock fenders). I'll post some quick mock up pics below. Thanks for looking and look forward to see what you all think.
  13. Take one Moebius 65 Plymouth Belvedere kit, swap a few parts from the Moebius Satellite and Johan Police Car kits, add a few aftermarket parts along with a few minor modifications and you can make this ... You can see all the build photos in the on the workbench section, just follow the link below. -Steve
  14. You know the release a few years back in the tin box with the 4" Road Runner? I just bought a couple of them off of Hobbylinc. My thoughts : What a REALLY NICE kit! Thoughtful, cool packaging, the decals are correct and... perfect, all the right parts. They did such a great job with this. You can tell, there was a lot of thought and care that went into it. Now, if only they'd do this nice a job reissuing that 71/72 Road Runner kit!!! BTW, it took my son 30 seconds to break the 4" Road Runner!
  15. Pro Touring 1980 Plymouth Volare

    I've been working on this 1980 Plymouth Volare, from the MPC Fuzz Duster kit, for more than a month now. I though I would be just throwing it together with some cool wheels and some paint. Since I started I have decided to do new things or things I have not been 100% successful at in the past. I flip flopped for 2 weeks before I bought it, and the original intent was to make a junker. On the way out of Hobby Lobby I saw a Maisto 2013 Viper and thought the wheels would look REALLY cool on the Volare. So, with 40% off coupon in hand (or on phone) I purchased both and started this journey. I purchased the donor Viper and the Volare the following day. In between I had a slow day at work and looked up all kinds of Google images of the kit and Pro Touring Plymouth Volares. If you're part of the Facebook or youtube model car scene you MAY have seen this thing before. So, the day I purchase the kit from Hobby Lobby I sat down and tuned into Youtube and one of my favorite builders (MrMinidreams) had picked it up and had the same idea. I'd like to see what he does with his. It all started with pulling the Viper apart, and trying the wheels underneath this beast. The wheels started turning in my head and I thought of a Hellcat Volare...what would that be like. I contacted Mrminidreams and he put me on to ClearlyScale and I purchased a 6.4 liter 392 cubic inch supercharged Hemi with 6 speed gearbox. I had to notch the frame a bit to get it to sit down in the Volare, but that what you do when you want to get it in there. Once I got the headers painted I noticed they would hook up really nicely to aluminum tubing for a more realistic exhaust system. Why not? I am trying new stuff. Take a look at the pics. More to come...
  16. This is the Revell/Monogram 1/24 scale '71 GTX kit... It gave me a few fits during the final few steps, but all in all I'm pleased with how it turned out. I really enjoy the Monogram kits. Paint is Testors MM Dark Bronze Metallic Decals from Firebird Designs. Wheels and tires from Fireball Modelworks. Highly recommend them all. Gonna try to get outside today, and snap some pictures. Hopefully... Anyway, as always thanks for looking!
  17. Here's a quick look at Round2's latest release of the Lawman 64 Plymouth Belvedere which just arrived at my door a few hours ago. I've been waiting about nine years for it. The original proposal came from Bill Coulter during a discussion at iHobby 2008 with Ernie Petit and myself on how the Lindberg line-up could be expanded. The build up by Bill and the late Tom Creeger was displayed the following year as a 2010 release. The fact that Tom's not around to see it happen make it bittersweet for me and no doubt for Bill too as they were close. Kudos to John G. and the gang at Round2 for seeing this through. Here's all the new parts that were added. The only thing holding this back from being a true 2N1 kit a set of stock or street machine tires. All the other stock V8 version parts are still in there. With all the new parts now included I can see plenty of Drag and street machine possibilities using different decals sets and or tires. Thanks again Round2 !!! Available now at your favorite Hobby retailer ..... Steve
  18. Superbird

    Been working a lot of overtime lately. Makes it hard to get anything done at home, but I've a little modeling in here and there to unwind. Finished up this Superbird over the last 2 weeks. Kit is the old Monogram kit. Paint is Testors Graphite Grey, covered in Tamiya Clear Blue, and topped in Testors Wet Look. No decals, as they fell apart when I wet them... completely obliterated... Thanks for looking!
  19. Right from the box the Moebius Belvedere Sedan kit it very close to the factory Police Package so I figured why not build one. I went with the Kansas State Patrol because they used two door patrol cars in the 60's, I liked the paint scheme and the decals are available. So with a few parts from the Moebius Satellite and Johan Police Car kits, some aftermarket parts and a few minor modifications I think I can make an accurate replica. I always start with the basic chassis and unibody front structure on these Mopar kits. I'm going for a factory stock, first day in service look so the floor pans got the typical Mopar overspray treatment. The top side is painted to resemble the black vinyl floor covering still used in todays Police Cars. The dual exhaust is from the Satellite kit, both kits share the same suspension parts. The bucket style seats were available on both the two and four sedan Mopar Police Packages by '64 and maybe even earlier based on documented survivors. A dummy plate covering the radio opening was added to an early test shot dash panel without the detail engraving of the production kits. Here's the basic chassis and suspension completed, The front end assembly is only dry fitted, it will be glued in at the same time as the engine as it needs to go in first. I'm going to call this part 1, stay tuned for more soon ..... -Steve
  20. Hey guys, This is the first time I have documented a build so be patient as I work my way through this one. There will be many little steps along the way. The inspiration for this came after seeing the Southeastern Gassers Association's event at Union Dragway in Union SC. I looked over my stash and decided the 41 Plymouth would make a good gasser. The inspiration photo is a 39 Dodge with a 392 Hemi. I love the unpolished, all business approach to this thing and my build will be very similar regarding the final finish. The first order of business was to open the grill. There will be a moon tank between the grill and radiator and I wanted it to be visible through the grill. This was a tedious task that took several sessions with the xacto knife. I will keep the chrome and dull it, and weather the exposed plastic to resemble rust and dirt. Next was the grill shell. It was an ill fitting piece out of the box and required some sanding and gap filling . I may need to revisit this step after primer to make sure everything is smooth. When researching the 1:1 41 Plymouth, the vertical seams can be seen but not the seam running across the front above the grill. The hood was also sanded and filled.
  21. Duster 340

    Been working on it all week. Came out pretty good. Had a bit of trouble with the decals. It was an old kit and they were hard to slide on. Then I accidentally tore the rear decal trying to remove some debris from the model before he clear coat dried.
  22. Hello all. Before I dive into this build, I want to kinda "re-introduce" myself. I'm Brandon, and I've been a member here for about 4 years now. I joined back when I was 12, and was totally immersed into modeling. I loved it. I had a passion for cars, and I built them. Mopars are my thing, I love anything really from Dodge or Plymouth, as is evident by the slew of '68/'69 Chargers sitting around my room. Well, I'm 16 now, and the models, have unfortunately been replaced by typical teenager things. I kept all my good finished builds, and I still proudly display them in my room. The unfinished builds, and the new kits, went into storage. I didn't sell my stuff off, because, unlike most people, I envision a day when I will return to this hobby. Right now, however, it's not practical for me to build all the time, and as such, the models had to go. However, I've had an urge lately. It's summer time right now, and I'm not as busy, so I decided to go pull a random kit out of storage (I literally just reached into the box of kits and pulled one out), and build it. Now, I didn't know what I was getting, because I don't remember what I even put into storage. I just want something to do. So, that brings me to this build. A 1969 Plymouth GTX from AMT. When I saw the kit, I didn't really have a solid plan for it, but I've thought about it over the past few days, and I've got some ideas. So, unlike my other builds, I'm not going for 100% "factory-stock". Instead, I want to go for a restored look. Something that a man might build in his garage, with a smaller budget, and still look pretty close to stock. A project car. Not any of this "factory correct" paint, or hardware. Colors are decided by 1, what's affordable, and 2, what looks cool. Performance is nice, but we don't want to blow the budget by cramming in a ungodly engine. So, what we have... A 1969 GTX kit. For our build, we will be using the 440. Normally, I'd shove a Hemi into this in a instant, but again, we want a fully restored car on a budget. Since most of these cars came from the factory with a 383, or a 440, we're gonna go with the more common motor. I see that AMT is now including the pad-printed Goodyear tires in the newer kits, but mine doesn't have them. So, I went and picked up one of their supplementary parts packs to give me the tires. For our paint system, I've decided to go with a unusual color. I've chosen Testors Lime Ice, which is not a factory Plymouth color, but I like it, and it will be one more step towards liberating myself from the B5 Blue craze that I used to have. I'm topping the Lime Ice with Wet Look Clear. I've also got a few other goodies for this build, like a M.A.D. distributor, some BMF, and some brake and fuel lines. Thanks for looking, Brandon
  23. Gasser questions

    Hey guys, I'm planning out a gasser and I was wanting some advice. So far I have a 41 Plymouth body on a 53 Ford frame and a Hemi from the Willy Borsch Winged Express kit. Slicks and deep dish steelies in the back (53 Chevy kit) and thinner Firestones with steelies in the front. I can scratchbuild some stuff. The idea is a dirty, rougher home-grown effort with attitude.
