  2. 66 Malibu SS (Revell Monogram)

    This is a '66 Malibu SS (Revell Monogram). The body paint is Testors Metallic Black enamel. The interior is Testors Yellow enamel. I used a Molotow Chrome pen on the windows. On the rear chrome I painted with Model Master flat black acrylic, and then used a toothpick to scrape off the raised letters. The lettering on the tires was originally flat white enamel, but I found after 2 weeks that it never dries. I rubbed it off with thinner and repainted with white acrylic. I used flat black acrylic in the radiator and on the engine heads. I put a coating of Future on, but didn't think it was glossy enough, so I kept layering on coatings until it became a big mess. Then I sprayed it down with Windex and ran it under the sink faucet and all the Future rubbed off easily. But not before I accidentally scraped up some of the paint. Two coatings of Future with a Q-tip eliminated almost all the scratches. This model has a poor design for fitting parts together. The side frames for the engine actually interfere with the exhaust pipes. I had a really tough time with that. Also, I had a tough time getting the front to stay on and had to end up using superglue, which unfortunately shows up on the seams. The workbench thread is here.
  3. 65 Impala SS 396

    Hello everyone, here is my fifth build for my “a day in 1979” series of models for a future diorama. It represents my uncle’s car as I remember it back in the 70’s. It was his daily driver and his only car for many years. I weathered it slightly to show some day to day use. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think. Thanks for looking!

  5. Hi all, Here is my completed build of the Revell Bronco. The body is painted with craft acrylic paint. Scratch-built parts include the front and rear bumper, 2 inch body lift, roof rack and tie downs. The interior is finished up with brown flocking, 5 point racing harnesses for the front seats and under dash gauges from Pro Tech. The rear seatbelt hardware is from Model Masters. I used the kit engine block and transmission, but replaced the intake and valve cover with the EFI set up from the 5.0 engine in the Revell 32 5 window coupe kit. All of the wiring, and pluming and flex fan are parts from Pro Tech. The wheels and tires are from the Revell Jeep Rubicon kit. The fender flares are from Fireball Model Works. Also, I added aluminum tubing for the exhaust tips. Thanks for looking.
  6. I've been working on this '66 Malibu SS by Revell Monogram. The painting is mostly done, and I've just started assembly. The kit called for a gloss black exterior and red interior. I'm using a metallic black exterior and yellow interior. The trim is done using Molotow chrome pen.
  7. 65 Impala SS 396 updated

    In keeping with my theme of building cars and trucks as I remember seeing them back in the 70’s, I decided to build a replica of my Uncle’s Impala SS. As a youngster I remember those rare occasions of my Aunt and Uncle coming all the way from Montana to visit. Is it sad that I remember more about their car than my relatives???? I drooled over this car every time I saw it. It was their everyday driver and only car they owned for many years. This is build number 5 for me and will eventually be a part of my large diorama I’ve been planning for years. Hope you enjoy it….thanks for looking! I started with the tires. The kit tires did not have whitewalls evenly placed on the tire so I found a Youtube video of a modeler using a compass style cutter and label paper to create his. I found some tires out of my parts box and gave it a shot. I am more than pleased with the outcome! I then weathered the tires with some road grime , sanding and stuff and this was the result. I am aware of the slight difference in tire sizes, its on purpose (fronts and backs). Next up was the engine. I did my usual weathering technique to achieve the worn daily driven look. Back to the chassis.....weathered and worn, but maintained. I need to dull down the mufflers yet! Gas tank is done. . Started the interior. I chose not to flock this as I felt it wasn't necessary due to closed doors and good texture on the kit parts. The dash is painted and the decals were not used ....neither was the kit dash lens because it looked too toyish and covered the details too much for me. I painted the dash in 3 shades of blue. The insert is lighter than the main dash and the dash pad a hair darker as my research always showed this slight variation. It also helps to create depth and variety. I scratch built the turn signal arm. For the front and rear bumpers....I weathered and dulled them down a tad and for the front turn signal lenses I used a prescription cough medicine bottle. It worked slick as all I had to do was cut to fit and glue. Back to the engine.....I scratched out an alternator bracket, AC comp brackets front and back, wired and plumbed, dipstick and temp sending unit plus a bunch more. Created some power steering hoses. Radiator support. Painted the body and did a test fit. Thanks for looking.....will post more as it comes together!
  8. Mostly OOB, only change swapped wheels from the '48 Caddy onto this (originally, I was going to strip them down and repaint them, but after seeing the purple pond take off the red trim on the wheel without getting the chrome oddly enough I changed plans). Paint is Tamiya TS-20 Metallic Green cleared with Pledge with Future. Apologies for the spotty lighting in a white bookshelf, this is only makeshift till I get things in order since I moved into a former siblings room months ago since I got anything done and still setting up.
  9. Revell AMG GT

    Hi All, I just completed my latest build of the AMG GT from Revell. First up, I was excited to try out this kit, as I had heard that Revell had stepped their game up with their latest kits, but was disappointed with the way the body and chassis came together. The bumpers and fenders didn't quite fit, resulting in a few bad panel gaps. I was also disappointed with the lack of detail for the headlights and taillights and how they fitted to the body. My final criticism of the kit is with the wheels and ties. The scale of these seem quite off compared to the rest of the car, so i went with aftermarket ones from Factory eighty one. Below is the final outcome of this build. Thanks Nathan
  10. Revell AMG GT

    Hi All I have just finished my Reell AMG Gt, I used Gravity Colors NSX Blue and Plamoz wheels and detail up photo etch, overall I am happy with the build, Slightly ennoyed on larger screens they seem dusty!!! so make take some more images lol, had a couple of speed bumps at the end, think I have done to many Revell kits for time being and looking to do something different, Im sure my next build will be even better as I seem to progress each build as I am sure we all do, please follow my instagram should you use it instagram.com/lawesscaleauto Thanks Chris
  11. StuG.40 Ausf. F/8 Revell 1/35

    Hello friends Today I bring you an assault cannon, the most produced in Germany during the Second World War. The Stug in its version 40 Ausf. F / 8 of the Revell brand at 1/35 scale, with an exterior finish suitable for snowy areas. https://youtu.be/iwY8mKYWtwE Greetings and I hope you like it
  12. One of more recent build. I found this kit on eBay for a great price (both rear door panels are missing) but I couldn’t refuse. Its pained model master emeral green metallic spray can with a testors high gloss enamel clear coat spray can. The interior is just flat black and wheels bare metal aluminum spray from Tamiya. Opinions??
  13. So I’m new here, but this is what I currently working on. It’s almost finished but what is everyone’s honest opinions?? Its painted Tamiya light gunmetal spray paint with a testors high gloss enamel clear spray can. I used splash paints polishing compounds on the clear. The interior is painted Tamiya red brown and aluminum. Wheels are gloss black and chrome pen.
  14. 1957 Ford sedan

    I'm looking to pick up one of these 2 door sedans. Plus or minus of these 2. I know the AMT is an older tool, but I read about the Revell having shape issues. I'm looking for a nice shelf model, so simple chassis is not necessarily a major drawback.
  15. Revell 1:25 Ford Expedition Hello friends! I would like to introduce you to my latest completed project. This is the Ford Expedition by Revell as a snap kit. He was originally set up as a police ssv. Enclosed in the kit the labels as self-adhesive ending. I didn't like that and I built the Ford as a civilian vehicle. The wheels come from another kit. Have fun watching. Paint with a gold-colored spray on black body. Over it turquoise glass paint. With the golden shade the colour is greenish. I would be very pleased about comments. Greetings from Jan
  16. Revell AMG GT

    Hi All, The other week, i was overseas for work, and went to a toy shop near by to get some presents for my nieces and nephews. The store also had a small hobby section, so i couldn't leave without getting myself a present too I bought the Revell AMG GT kit along with the Revell Mk1 Golf GTI, which i will build sometime in the future. Normally i dont like revell kits, but i heard that they have gotten better. (we'll see) first up i sanded back a few mould/part lines on the body and prepped it for painting. My plan for this build was to do a matte or semi gloss colour to do something different. Tamiya have recently come out with a new colour for their GT3 version of this car which is a semi gloss light gunmetal. My LHS didnt have this colour in stock, so i got the Gloss version of the colour (TS42) and will do a Semi gloss clear coat over the top. This kit does have some engine detail, but like most new cars, it as a large intake manifold / engine cover which doesn't allow you to see much of it. This kind of explains the limited detail revell have added to the kit. Its decent, but not great. Because of this i didn't spend a great amount of time on it, as you wont be able to see it once the kit is complete with the engine cover piece. Another strange detail is the rear diff and exhaust. Both parts have a decent amount of detail, but these wont be seen at all once the kit is complete as the chassis covers it all. Next part was painting the chassis. This is one big piece with moulded in exhaust and transmission. The chassis was painted in semi gloss black, then masked off and then sprayed with bare metal silver. I plan to add a few extra colours to weather the exhaust, but haven't done that yet. Thanks Nathan
  17. 70` Dodge Charger "Green Beast"

    Hello, here is my current project.. Its 70`Charger from Revell Fast n`Furious kit.. Im not going to build Torettos car, since i wanted to do something else.. Paint is Tamiya Candy lime green.. Like you see, i opened headlights for grille.. Started engine wiring and plumbing.. Interior piece got some weathering.. Im doing this something like: it has fresh paint, fresh engine and chassis parts, but some pieces on body, i mean inner fenders on engine space, that interior panel where back seat should be, and chassis will be in "old" color of this car.. So its kind of middle of progress, but still in driveable condition.. I hope you got my point, my english is not well to explain it better..
  18. Chassis ID needed

    Need some ID help. Marked "Revell 1982" Thanks Robert
  19. This is one of the few cars I built that's not a Ferrari. It was built for a friend of mine who owns a 69 Cadillac Coupe Deville (I think ) The kit was a real horror story and was never going to go together stock. The agreement was he gives me the kit and I do what I want to it, this is what I came up with.
  20. Which 1/24-1/25 scale kit(s) would be the better choice for a project? My goal is to replicate a GT model Mustang with today's wheels/tires/drivetrain via bashing/aftermarket.
  21. 57 Chevy Nomad - revell

    Well the adventure has begun. I've taken a 4 year hiatus from model building but the bug has bit again after dusting off my neglected ones recently. My re-entry is a 57 Chevy nomad which I first built as a young kid. I loved that car so much I used to take it everywhere with me. Eventually it met it's end when I left it on the dash of my aunt's car during a hot summer day. Back then I just assembled the kits without paint but was still deeply upset when I found the twisted/warped remains after a day at the zoo. So off to fleabay and I found this opened kit for a good price and pulled the trigger. For the past 20 years I've built primarily tamiya and fujimi kits because they are straight and require little work to get them to piece together correctly. Having started on this nomad I'm reminded how terrible these older kits are in comparison. Some of the injection molding did not take completely and the chrome is awful with satin mottling everywhere as well as excessive flashing. Then there is the molded trim which is uneven and blends into the body at places. Fortunately I've been able to correct most of the body issues but the engine which suffered most from the improper injections is going in the garbage. Instead I've order a resin kit of a 400 small block chevy from BNL resins. I'm also going to try my hand at re-chroming the trim parts with molotow and an airbrush. I've never used that stuff before so this will be an experience that I hope brings satisfactory results. If not I'm going to black out the car so I haven't yet decided what the paint will be yet. I'm also going to try my hand at building leaf springs for the rear suspension using styrene strips and am pulling out the stops for all the other detailing items I typically skip over. This means it will be a slow build. So far I'm happy with the shell after 12 or so hours of filing, sanding and fitting parts. As a kid I recall it was tricky to get all the opening parts to line up so this time I've spent extra time to ensure I get the gaps even. Getting the headlight trim to sit flush has been a challenge. I'm going to have to fill and my 15 year old tube of model putty is no good so back to the hobby store. Going to toss the hood and get a resin high rise with chrome delete instead. This will allow me to toss the hood hinge and fill in the firewall where the hinge openings are currently. Finally I need some wheels. Don't want to go 20" low profile but would like to get something a little more updated. Haven't decided on anything yet so if there are suggestions please let me know your thoughts. Anyways this is the start of what I hope to be my best build yet.
  22. 22JR decals needed

    Looking for Revell Tony Nancy 22jr double dragster decal sheet. Mine are shot.. Thanks D2M
  23. '67 SS-396 : Correct Cooling System ?

    Been building the Revell 1967 SS-396 Chevelle , and am taking some liberties with its engine : I'm replicating an 'Aluminium' Head (think : L88 427) engine (not available from the factory in 1967) . One item stands out to me regarding the as-provided-by-Revell engine : the fan . Is that 4-paddle , direct-drive fan correct ? Perhaps the engine in the car which the model is based on was equipped with the base 325hp 396 , and was sans any axle ratio outside of the standard 3.08 / peg ? Either way , it doesn't look right to me . Shouldn't it be a 5-7 paddle fan with a clutch ? I'm fairly confident that the L78 , L71 , L72 , and L88 would have a 'real' fan . Input and images welcome !
  24. `68 Dodge Dart GSS

    Hello, here is my Dart from Mr. Norm`s kit.. Decals were poor condition, but i used that stripe and aircleaner decals from newer Hemi Dart kit.. Added plugwires and mudflaps and some custom "Mopar" license plates and some little decals too on windows.. I lowered front just a little bit, so stance looks much nicer now.. Paint is Tamiya TS-34 called Camel Yellow.. and for vinyl top, i just brush painted it with satin black.. Some red color also to give bit more attitude.. Commets are welcome..
  25. 'Chrome free' Corvette

    Twenty year old Revell kit, and not a bad one too. Wanted a contemporary look without changing the 'structure' too much, so de-chromed throughout, faired-in and cut down bumpers front & rear, steering wheel from a Tamiya R34, the rest is just paint. Tamiya Gunmetal, polished & buffed, not clear coated, a dark red interior which I carried through to the outside accents and finall a little carbon-fibre decalling on the valence. Ta Daaaa !! Wheels & tyres are 18" SA-70s from Aoshima and just don't look right. I'll replace them with 16" when I can, also need to source some brake discs, there's a set in the R34 spares but I'll need to perform a fair bit of surgery to get them to fit the Revell axles. Hope you like it, AFN Ian.
