Scale I Build

  1. Built 2 years ago. Fingernail polish finish. Sun visors & mirror were the only parts added to an otherwise box stock build. Comments welcomed.
  2. A friend just picked up an original issue AMT '70 T-bird kit; the glass is missing but otherwise it's complete - does anyone have the glass from the reissued '71? Thanks!
  3. Just a quick build that wasn't going to be as I was given this AMT kit and thought I would never build it. I used the body as a Paint test to try out some variations. After polishing it I thought maybe one day I'll finish it. It sat on the bench for several months then I received the Molotow Chrome pens and decided to use it to test the pens. In 5-minutes I had all the chrome trim done and decided I might as well finish it. No BMF on this one. Still will use BMF for trim on big builds, but for these quickie builds the chrome pen is just fine. This is not a very well detailed kit so I decided to "curbside" build it as a showcase piece. It turned out okay I suppose for a a build I never intended to ever build. Paint is Duplicolor Torreador Red Metallic with Duplicolor Effects pearl clear. Bottom is Universal black. It's hard to see how nice this paint looks from a photo-light-box, but I will say it's gorgous in sunlight.
  4. Hey everyone, Here is the build up I just completed of the Revell Bob Glidden Thunderbird Pro Stock. I decided to build this as am Outlaw drag car. I gave it an military/Air Force theme. I cut open the trunk and modified the role cage to bring it up to date a little. I used Pro Tech detail parts and scratch built parts to detail the engine/chassis/interior.
  5. my wife got this for me for xmas! What did you get?
  6. Recently picked up model car building after 50 years! I love designing cars from two models. This one is a 1962 Thunderbird base with a 2010 Shelby Mustang drive train. The windshield is raked and the roll bar is from a portion of the Mustang roof. The front air dam and rear spoiler are handmade. Sorry I did not take pictures of the build. I am chronicling the current build I am working on.

    Just finished the last of the summer stash of models. Time to pick 2 or 3 more, paint them before winter sets in, and build them when the snow is surrounding the house.
  8. Hey everyone! This is only my second project I've started since 2002. My first one became a mess, so I stripped it and started fresh. This is my first attempt at using automotive paint, so I decided to try it out on a car that I don't care much about, never been a a of them. Interestingly enough, since researching the car online, I've grown to appreciate it! I hope I do it justice. I'm using Rustoleum plastic primer, Duplicolor Perfect Match Victory Red and Too Clear Coat. I haven't started sanding the body yet, so the runs on the driver's side will be going away! Between work and my girl, I'll try to update on its progress! Please feel free to criticise and give me pointers! Thanks for looking, see you around!
  9. Hello, This is my first post here. Would like to share with you all my latest diorama project. All done in the scale of 1:24, some items are scratch building and others made of resin. It took me a lot of time to get the look/feel right, for me that was the big challenge this time, to get the weathering and texture of rust as close as the real life. Please feel free to comment/criticise about it. thank you Even if you don't have or use Facebook, I have shared an album to show there in case these pics don't load properly here.

  10. Hi everyone, I am building a 1985 Sunny King Ford NASCAR. I would like to check any available interior pictures as reference. I was particularly interested in the seat, and what they looked like in the real thing. I'm not sure that the kit seat is a true representation of what a seat in one of those NASCARs looked like. thanks in advance, everyone. chris
  11. Finally finished this one, after 41 days on the workbench. Paint is Testors One Coat White Lightning Pearl. Lucas "Flame Thrower" headlights from the AMT 55 Nomad kit. Custom Lenses from the 53 Studebaker kit. Scratchbuilt steering column and turn signal lever. Shifter made from a straight pin. Bucket seats from the AMT 53 Corvette. Vertex magneto from the 57 chevy kit, Plug wires have correct firing order. Scratch built fuel log and gas line. License plate made in Photoshop that says "Cristi" - my wife's name. And yes, she is quite pleased with her belated Christmas present. Off the bench and on the shelf! Here is a link to the build process... http://www.modelcars...o=new_post&f=18
  12. One more today, becaus i have time this T-Bird was a bad try to remove paint. From the beginning. i wanted to make this old monogram kit with opening doors in a color like biscuit. I think, that i have always bad luck with red plastic. after more than three color layers, always red will come thru the paint. "What doing, little Dominik?" I ask my self. straight in a bath of oven cleaner to remove the paint and wait 24 hours, there was the result: in places departed paint down to the primer. Bad, bad result. so i took my gun and painted like van Gogh a rusty, old look. Some dust and paint for rust and - ready.Put some new wheels and windshields in, new licenceplates and up for it on the track. It is tooo heavy i think, looks like a old ship in the ship graveyard...but it was a experiment and has also a place in my showcase. What do you think about? ...
