  1. Corvette C7

    Finished the last in the series. I like this kit, although its fairly simplified it went together well. The tough part was painting the black out ducts on the body. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  2. Gestation happened in my Monogram Ferrari 275P vintage kit review thread. I started by barely tacking the engine together and onto the chassis pan. Measured and drew plans to figure out where to chop and modify. I thought cutting down the engine components would help, and considering the way Revell engineered it, nobody would notice. Each surface was filed down before reassembling with just a little more glue, but still can separate to paint. Cut apart the plenum, air filter and canister part. Sawed off the engine bay sides. I sawed, and in some cases scribed and broke apart the chassis pan. The suspension is really non-existent, lower A-arms were easy to relocate. The back has been narrowed. Shortened the pan behind the front axle line. I glued all this with regular toxic Testors glue, and Flex-i-file liquid cement, much like welding. That way if I needed to adjust, could pull apart, and I could squirm it around for adjustment (supergluing does not allow this). I used the Dremel with this bit for everything, here I just removed the edge of the pan. I really cut apart the interior tub, with a saw, and filed down and straightened the cuts. I needed to keep this as a separate piece, for being able to get the struts in later. I tacked parts onto the pan, but welded all together as I went. I adjusted my plan as needed, kept the tunnel which will need some modification to the chrome trim part. I really like the tunnels, so cut off the rear body part, made several saw cuts. Front of the pan was sawed off, some Dremel grinding to shape, real rough at this time. But it all fits in great, and don't need an engine hump! Thinking of how to add fender flares, simple round bumps most likely. Still need to shorten front axles. Modified the rear, decided to keep the original grills, but going to be modified at the bottom, and will be mesh. Drilled holes for the Mondial taillights, have also done for the headlights. The valance edge will be refined later. I was going to have the exhausts exit through holes similar to the Mondial, but it will be easier (I hope) to direct down from the mufflers into the tunnels, and then back. Now I need to leave it alone, so the cement will cure. I discovered the body is twisted, so need to consider how to straighten with strategic body mounts using screws. The fender flares will be fun. Interior should have simple door panels, and dashboard. Need to figure out the radiator in front, thinking laid almost flat, with channels exiting before the wheels. Then when all that is done, cut off the engine lid, and then will need to fabricate chassis box thingies and framework continued from the engine part. Two more radiators in back, modify the body ducts. Then exhaust pipes. Then seats, I got some cool aftermarket units at the DSC show. Color, Ferrari red with a pearl overcoat. Dann will hate that.
  3. Rolled her off the assembly line this morning, not to happy with the final paint finish, or the ill fitting hood, but it's done and I can go on to the other Chargers I have. Painted with Testors' Sub Lime green and wet look clear, roof is Tamiya semi gloss black white the interior is Testors' lacquer primer white and Tamiya semi gloss black door panels and dash. The Hemi came from the Revell 68 Charger kit and I had to modify the exhaust system to work with the headers. Rear Frame supports (black things in front of the rear sprigs) came from a Revell 70 Charger kit. Thank you and all comments welcomed! Now, on with the show! Thanks again!
  4. '68 Dart Torqueflite

    Hi again! Anyone building up a Revell '68 Dart as the Hemi version? I need the stock 440's Torqueflite transmission - just the engine block halves and trans pan (parts 53, 54 and 61). Thanks!
  5. Hey, everyone!, I just wanted to show you the shifter I made for a friend. It was a fun project - in itself...a model all its own...Hope you like, thanks for looking!!
  6. Revell 70 Charger in Go Mango

    Finished this one up yesterday! Not a bad kit at all and easy to convert to a street machine. Painted Testors' Go Mango with Tamiya TS-65 Pearl clear. Interior seats were taken from a Revell 68 Charger along with the exhaust pipes which were cut down to fit onto the kit supplied headers. I had an extra 68 so I used the tail light panel from it to make a hybrid 68/70 Charger. Thanks for looking and all comments welcomed.
  7. I got all the rear stripes put on the Chargers now. Check them out. 68 Flame Red 69 Sublime green 70 F&F Go Mango 70 Sun Yellow 70 Panther Pink Thanks for looking, comments welcomed.
  8. Completed this morning. Not perfect but it is done. Painted in Tamiya Park Green with a black interior. The Hemi is from a Revell 67 Dodge Coronet kit. I wanted to use an AMT Hemi from the 68 Road Runner kit but the placement of the exhaust manifolds on the AMT heads did not line up properly with the exhaust pipes so I had to use one from a spare Coronet kit I had. "Hemi" door decals are from a spare Revell 68 Dodge Charger kit. Not much more to say, everything else came from the Daytona kit itself. Thanks for looking.
  9. 2005 Corvette

    The latest in my series to build all generations of Corvettes, the C6. Fairly simplified kit, but it goes together well. Only 1 left to go! Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  10. Update on 71 Chargers

    I got my Fireball Model works six pack intakes in the other day. Unfortunately they are just a little big to fit on the AMT & Revell 1/25 440 engines. That's okay though because I have a couple of Monogram 1/24 scale MOPARS that those intakes will fit. I went through some boxes and found some six pack intakes that would fit the engines though, so all is still good. Here is the one for the AMT 71 Charger, I forget where I got this intake from, but it is molded in yellow. The tires/wheels for this build I also picked up another 71 Charger, this one is the street machine version with the Hemi. Here is the set of tires/wheels I finally decided for this one. The wheels are some MPC units from something while the tires are those Goodyear Raised White Letter 15s.
  11. My latest addition to my Charger stable is this Fast & Furious version. I found a set of really wide treaded tires that would fit the kit wheels. I only had to use some #14 spacers from an MRC tire pack between the rear axle and brake plates to get them to fit without rubbing the springs. I'm actually going to have some fun with this one, as I have a 68 tail light panel and interior to put in it. So it will be a 68 Charger with a 70 nose. I will paint this one Go Mango with a black interior, like the 74 Road Runner I just rebuilt. It will have full exhaust so it will be a street car instead of a drag car. Below is just a mock up of how it's going to sit.
  12. I finally got a finish on this body that I can live with! Interior is almost done as well. This will have a 440 six pack with the carb setup from Fireball Model works. Thanks for looking! Comments welcomed.
  13. Hi all, it's been a long time since I posted a finished build here on the forum, but finally I found the time to upload some images. The Bonneville Coupe as I call it is basically a box stock 1932 Ford 3-Window Coupe without the fenders. Modifications are the wheel and tire combo, and the straight pipe headers. The paint is Testors Green Metal Flake(1630) from a can, no clear overtop. For more updates on my builds, please follow me on Instagram @scaled_models as I update there regularly. Cheers!
  14. So this kit has been in my built kit cabinet for a few years, and then I noticed this goo pouring out of the wheels. it looks like the rubber is attacking the plastic, and the plastic pours out. I didn't pay it any attention, but it just gets worst and worse. So I took the wheel off & stripped them with brake fluid
  15. Hi all,hope alls well for ya,,I just finished this Revell "Ice Patrol" kit. Fun kit to do,,sprayed w/Testors "Lime Ice" quickdry enamel,,and some basic wiring and such. Always enjoyed the early 70's AMC products,,my grandpa had a Blue + white interior Jeep Wagoneer ,,had many a fun trip in that one. Enjoy the builds here,,Build on!
  16. The maroon 68 has morphed into a flame red one! I had so much problems with the maroon that I chucked it into the pond and bought another kit. This is the paint job after a dip in the pond as well. The 68 turned out to be a problem child. I have some hood clearance problems with the air cleaner that I will fix. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed!
  17. New Revell 67 GTX

    I broke down and got a new one the other day along with some Testor's Revving red. I was quite surprised when I saw instrument decals on the sheet along with a neat set of red line tires and some nifty Crager mags! Red lines and Cragers, hum. So sixties! Backing plates are painted with Mr. Color #3 red. Here it is with the paint finished, Testor's Revving Red with clear coat. The chrome air cleaner base is from the Revell 68 Charger kit. I am using the chrome round air cleaner from the 67 on the 68 to give it the look of a stock 426 Hemi equipped car. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  18. Revell 68 Dodge Charger

    Painted Tamiya TS-11 Maroon Interior will be either black and white or maroon and white. Still got some fixing to do to the body. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  19. Revell 1967 Plymouth GTX

    This is one I started back in 2002. Originally I had painted it with auto touch up paint. Did not like how it turned out so got another body and finally painted it with Tamiya TS-54 light metallic blue today. Thanks for looking, comments welcomed!
  20. 68 Firebird 400

    Here is my finished Firebird 400 model (Revell kit). Body is Model Master metallic blue, and interior is Model Master light ivory. Enjoy! The workbench thread is below.
  21. Revell 1970 Charger R/T

    I wanted to work on something bright, so I got out this 70 Charger for a quick build (I hope). Painted Odds & Ends sun yellow with wet look clear coat. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  22. Interior is complete! There is almost too much detail on this kit. Someone could spend hours on the interior alone. I have all the outside chrome put on, now I am just working with the windows and I am hoping it will be done tomorrow. Thanks for looking! Comments welcomed.
  23. I had started working on this one before I was sidetracked by the 60 Impala. Finally got the door panels and flooring done and now I can concentrate on getting to completed. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  24. Revell 1960 Impala

    I started this one way back in 2009, I painted it with a large can of red paint but decided I didn't like that color. I dragged it out today and did a quick color change using Tamiya TS-11 maroon. Before and after shots. I discovered I have another 60 in the box that I want to paint turquoise, so instead of repainting the wheels again, I borrowed them from this project car. Thinking about what to do with the project car, I shot it TS-11 maroon and put some tires and wheels on it from the Revell 59 Corvette kit. Plans call for a grey interior and bucket seats and center console from the parts car AMT 67 SS 427 kit. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  25. Trade

    Have a revell 40 ford coupe open but sealed inside for trade
