Scale I Build

  1. My last finished build of 2017 I think... My tribute to Modelhaus, of their 1972 Buick Riviera Boat-tail. This is the last model I ordered from Modelhaus in May 2016 and received it November 2017. I will miss them like all of you will I'm sure. Another excellent cast, very detailed body, interior and parts. I chose a custom metallic brown paint, actually slightly two-tone below the chrome body accent strip. Lot's of hand-polished clear coats, this is mirror smooth and shiny Interior is Coffee Bean mixed with Mocha craft paints. Drilled out the headlights replaced with resin lenses I choose Pegasus wheels, as for me they fit well and fill the huge wheel-wells. Had a lot of fun with this one, thanks Modelhaus for all you have given us in the hobby
  2. Just completed my latest batch of 3 1960's custom full size cars all with opening doors. 1962 Chevrolet Impala Started life as a convertible. Added custom vacuum formed roof which is done as a vinyl top. Tamiya dark blue with Tamiya light blue pearl top and interior. Vinyl top material is masking tape. This has a more "formal" style roof line. 1962 Pontiac Catalina Replaced the top with a custom top. Painted in Matt yellow with a pale green interior and lowered 1965 Buick Riviera Custom roof, added 4 scale inches to the rear quarter panel, added sunroof. Opened trunk and added amplifiers and huge speakers. photo etched grill with headlights set in behind it. Paint is Tamiya light pink pearl with satin white under pink lace. That's it, all three.
  3. Built this awhile back, but didn't have a chance to post it until now. Not bad for an AMT model. SAM_2539 by Eric Lucas, on Fli SAM_2542 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2541 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2540 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  4. This 1969 Riviera was the second post apocalypse build of mine. Thanks for looking!! http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http:// http://
  5. In my humble opinion, the line drawn between customs and lowriders in the 70's was a blurry one. Maybe a hazy one is more apt for the decade, but I've been interested in that pre-Dayton era for a few years now. The first gen Riviera is probably Detroit's best factory custom effort (with the 58 Impala coming a close second) and needs little to cruise the streets in style. A gray plastic AMT 65 Rivera is the (un)lucky subject of this build, so less writing and on with some pics okay? Like most AMT kits of the era, this one has a basic floor pan with all the detail molded in along with those rudimentary metal axles. Since customs are all about stance, this baby is low. And that would mean a metal axle piercing though the heads of the motor. Since its a Nailhead and not a AMT Axle head, the axle had to go. ">http:// I used square stock to make a stut type thing, drilled holes for the cut down axles and called it a day. Not very real looking, but niether is a axle going though the engine bay. I hear some guys saying already, " But chassis XYZ will fit with a little spit and elbow grease". Ehh, I cant really be bothered ">http:// Looks unobtrusive from underneath and I built in a little negative camber for some added stance realism The rear was done in the conventional metal axle way with the top of the wheel house lopped off and the mount moved up. ">http:// So we got a grounded stance, now we need some shoes. Im not into product shots but these new wheels from Pegasus deserve at least one ">http:// The Astro's on the left are period perfect for this build, the reverse on the right are next in line for a earlier 60's custom project. After a little shaving of the body mounts, and some persuasive measures to the interior tub we got a great parking lot pose. ">http://
