66 charger - 70’s street machine
DannyDodge posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsSo recently i just jumped back into modeling, i was on reddit reading and what not trying to get idea on what to start working in, and came across a post from a guy wanting to downsize his collection, and wanting to help people get into the hobby, after talking with him he sent me this charger kit for free *awesome dude and much appreciated* so when i was building in the past i always built my cars the same way, perfect paint jobs and fancy builds. Which is why i think i got burnt out, i was putting to much into trying to make it perfect and just wasn’t having fun anymore so with this car i wanted to try some different things that i have never tried before, i wanted to build it as a nice car maybe some guy in the mid/late 70’s got just out of high school and dumped his money into, nice but driven look, so i wanted to do some lite weathering i also have been messing with 3D printing and just picked up a resin printer so i wanted to try to print some things up for. A lot of talking i know, but I’m getting to the pictures and building i promise lol so like i said i wanted a 70’s style street machine. the stink bug, shackled up stance, tunnel ram sticking through the hood, etc.. so i went to Ron olsens website for some stl files and pick up a tunnel ram, some Hoosier front runners, ansen wheels and then saw the predator carb files he had and said “oh yea this car needs those” So i printed those out and they came out pretty good still learning the printing process Paint turned out ok on the parts, not perfect but it will work, i have painted the filter elements since i took these pictures, Molotov chrome on the wheels and carb body Aluminum on the air cleaners and just primer for the front runner tires
1967 Cougar - Modelhaus
RestoModGuy posted a topic in Model CarsI've always liked the stance and look of a Cougar, one of my best friends in Highschool had a 67 light blue with Cragers and Radial TA's. While I chose a darker color blue then the actual Mercury light blue, this is Duplicolor Medium Maui Blue metallic. Wheels are Pegasus "T's"

1969 Dodge Charger
om617 posted a topic in WIP: Model CarsGot this one painted as the sun is out and there is some warm weather. Done the foil,put on decal and the some coat of clear. Maby not the most exciting color,it`s tamiya champagne. Since the pro street style is a bit crazy,i thought tone it down with the color,so white top,decal and interior. Here are some pics. The chassis is half AMT and half Revell. Not done painting. Interior. Some flocking and bmf added. No cage and i still wanted back seat. Tires and wheels. The wheels are machined aluminium from "customs by terry" on Ebay. The body so far. Needs some side marker painted,door handles,wipers,bumpers and other small things. Not made an decission on engine but the 426 with supercharger is one option. Another is the Gibson engines,but they cost a lot so not sure. Some pro mod converted to street gas would be cool,got to think about it a little more. I guess it`s not everyone cup of tea but comments are welcome by anyone. Thanks for looking.
