Scale I Build

Found 6 results

  1. Showing a Johan kit I put together for a good friend of his real deal '63 Max Wedge Super Stock Polara.
  2. Build thread for my entry to this years Cannonball run (Sleeperball) over in the cbp. I'm taking the Color Me Gone 330 on making it into a rusty crusty Polara Wagon. I'm going to put a modern Hemi in it, may upgrade with a supercharger might not, they are kind of loud. A arm suspension and all wheel disk brakes being donated from what's left of a Viper (Top right in Red) I picked up months ago. Got other plans that I'll disclose when I get them to sell the sleeper look. Starting point Where it's at right now. Didn't like how the rear window looked so I'm cutting and shorting it some. Might be a gutsy move with only 36 days left but I think it'll look closer to the 1:1 now. More to come. Thanks for looking!
  3. Here's my entry for this year's Sleeper themed Cannonball. It's a 64' Polara Wagon converted from the 64' 330 Color Me gone Drag kit. Built up to balance out performance and range with a paint job to look the part of a car fresh out of a junkyard. Build thread: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/107243-64-polara-wagon-cannonball-sleeper-build-completed/ Features: 6.1 Liter HEMI with implied CNC Stage 2 Intake and Heads. Front and rear suspension with all wheel disk brakes out of a 96-03' Dodge Viper. Dual exhaust systems, one set piped to single short glass packs for some punch. Another set piped to the rear with dual turbo-ish mufflers to keep her nice and quite when needed. Dribbler system into the rear mufflers to make it appear to smoke. Valve stems for the tires and a good old fashion antenna to really sell the look. Pictures: Thanks for looking, comment and critic's more than welcome.
  4. Oh it`s him with those never ending projects lol. The weather and location makes it very hard to get some painting done so it takes longer then planned. But it`s getting warmer,also i have made and deal with my grandparents where i can borrow a room for painting. I cant do it where i live now. To the subject,it`s an 63 Polara from Flintstone,pretty okay cast but very thick some places so it an never ending sanding story. Been sanding on and off for two days now and the chassis starting to fit pretty nice. The donor is the 64 Color Me Gone from Lindberg. It`s got the same 119 wheelbase and also some goodies as the engine and hoodscoop. It`s not going to any exact replica of an Max wedge car,but a street machine with factory looks. Obviously the interior will be wrong since its 64. Not decided on color yet,but it stand between black,red or white,non metallics and steelies. The headers from this kit does not look like the one i wanted,if anyone know where to get replicas of the factory 413/426 headers i really appriciate it. Here is the progress so far.
  5. Hello. Can i use the Lindbert 63/64 Dodge chassis and tub as donor for the Flintstone 63 Polara? Maby you have some better suggestions? I would also appriciate if anyone know where to get the air intake/scoop on the picture. Tommy
  6. Hello...again Anyone want to recomend a 63 Polara kit? Post or no post does not matter as long as it is a 2 door. I really enjoy these max wedge cars,is it called Pro-stock? But i would want to try build a more street friendly version,no excact replicas. Also,good tip on what donor is good for suspension/tub etc if not included in any resin kits. I`m quite new to resin stuff so i thought it would be okay to ask on here. Tommy.
