Scale I Build

Found 5 results

  1. Finished. Added some detail where I could. Still a looker right out of the box. Comments and observations welcome.
  2. Don't see many of these Revell 1/25 kits built or in the process. This is just a mockup of my build (no seat, body panels, chute etc) still have to do the 16 outside pipes, add a few additional fuel lines/return to fuel tank, line tee's, throttle linkage rod with actuators, brake lines and stuff. Thanx for looking. Comments and observations welcome.
  3. I'm going to start this AMT kit. Does anyone have any scratch issues to improve this engine? Since the engine is great it deserves dedication. * internet references And you know which model is this engine?
  4. I like the late front-engined dragsters just before they went to rear mounted engines, and this Tommy Ivo one is a fine example. This AMT kit is flawed in some areas in the relation to the original car and the pictures I could find of it on the web, but it’s still a great kit. The decal red striping seems of a different pattern, the nose cross section is less rounded and nearly not as long. Probably for production reasons You only notice when you hold it next to the original though. At one time it seems to have worn those fat tires that come with the kit all be it on some different wheels. Not many parts fill the box. The parts are all small and fragile. It’s more like building an airplane fuselage than building a car. Oh, those Airfix times of years gone bye… I like working with this plastic though that seems of a harder quality than Revell / Monogramm kits. As the body parts have to be parted after applying decals they have to perfectly line up again. So I made some tabs and made a threaded boss on the upper body with a small screw through the lower part. I know most paint the body orange like on the box. But it isn’t. At all. It’s a pastel shade pink like “ old salmon pink” or the color you can end up with mixing some left over paints in a paint shop… I think Tamiya XF15 could work, a flat paint, but I found a household spray can in a hardware store marked as “Antwerp pink”. Whatever. I think common spray-cans can work just as fine as modelers paint.
