  1. Oak Barrels Whiskey Club

    My third diorama begins. The theme is around whiskey. I decided to build a section of an older building with an arch as the entrance to the club. There will be a section of some sort of water body on the right.
  2. 1953 Chevy 3100 Truck.

    Hello everyone. I’m new to scale modeling and this is my first diorama ever. I have been experimenting with preserved sheer moss, which I have used as grass. Please, feel free to critique and give some input. It’s still a work in progress as I’m waiting for some materials to arrive. I will repost with updates as I add more details.
  3. Trying to copy my son's 1:1 pickup

    I want to make a model of my son's 1:1 1981 Chevy truck he inherited from my dad. I've got the body itself sorted out, including scratch building the camper shell, but I need to figure out the grille. I did a Google search and found a picture of a model with the correct grille. The grille looks like it is resin. I'm looking for that EXACT grille.
  4. I started on a replica for a customer of his truck, I really wish i had another kit I could back half and do it up
  5. I am looking for the out of production kit by Revell of Germany. Its the Kenworth dump truck. I do not know the stock number. Thanks.
  6. 1960's GMC V6 engine dimensions?

    I'm looking to make a scaled model of GMC's big block 305 V6 engine and I can't find any specs or actual dimensions or drawings of the engine. If someone already has it modeled in CAD let me know since I want to model the engine in Solidworks to make a GMC version of Revell's Suburban kit and 3D print everything. I just want to have the correct specs to model it properly. If you have the actual engine and you measured it or you know someone with the dimensions of the engine or if you somehow have GMC original blueprints of the engine that would be great.. I won't ask questions lol. I know about the gmcguy6066 website but I couldn't find any drawings with dimensions.
  7. Bronco

    One of my Better looking trucks. Came out real nice. Very good kit. 1 (92) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (94) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (97) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (99) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (100) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (101) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2199 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2200 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  8. Tired White Freightliner

    This is my version of the ATM White Freightliner. I wanted to make a very tired and weathered truck and liked the look of the dual drive day cab. I used the salt method with a base of brown under the green and then added some more weathering with acrylics. The cab was very fiddly to put together, but other than that, I found it went together well. I shortened the stacks a bit and add some air hoses. I'm pretty happy with it and felt I didn't rush it with my second model kit since I was a teenager (I always got frustrated with models when I was young). Thanks for looking!

  10. http://www.autoworldstore.com/product_p/amt1046.htm It's a 'Future Release' and 'Pre-order' deal at Autoworld. My comments are: I owned a White/GMC Road Boss II for a brief moment. Detroit 8V92 Road Ranger transmission. Turbocharger over Suipercharger(the big one). Those are the engines you let off the throttle and they make a rapid 'Rap-Rap-Rap'. That's because they are two stroke engines. This is a neat kit. From the old days.
  11. 86 GMC

    I felt dirty after getting the Ford Bronco kit. I've always been a GM guy. So, I went out and picked this kit up. I made it to look like the truck I would love to own.
  12. I was going thru my build ups that have been packed away and I found this... Old prescription bottles make great wheel tubs. My brother told me about this years ago. Stay tuned...
  13. GMC Chevy Rally Wheels

    Good morning all... I am in need of some GMC rally wheels like this with the caps I have searched high and low and can not seem to find any. Any info on where I can source some or if any one has any to trade/sell let me know Thanks Mike
  14. Here's my 1994 Snake Bite Monster Truck. I started this when I was a kid over 20 years ago. I stopped after I glued up the engine, and after some of the body was painted. I decided to finish the kit for a model contest. Sadly, Snake Bite didn't win, but it took 3 months to build and detail it. I built it with the body able to come off. So I can remove the hood/cab or just the box. The hood has all the scales/ridges outlined black to show thru the transparent red paint.I also switched out the metal axles since they were short and couldn't hold the weight of the tires. I used a coat hanger and that works just right to support the tires weight and is now long enough to work. I ended using the one of the axles on my Graffiti coupe since the plastic bars couldn't fit since they were too short over the motor. I filled in the gap for the grill with a cut piece of the spare hood for the Graffiti coupe. This is probably going to be my last monster truck since I forgot how much I hate kits with frames. Monster trucks now fail in the pain in the kits to build with dragsters, and NASCAR cars. .
  15. 66 Ford F Series

    Hello all! I am wondering if anybody knows if there was ever a kit made of 66 Ford F100 or F150 2WD any help would be great thanks
  16. Bronco

    fell in love with the kit.
  17. 240 Robert Ford Bronco

    Hi Guys I am a brazilian modeler and new in the car modeling universe. I´d like to build the 1979 Ford Bronco as seen in the 240 Robert TV show. I am using the 1/24 Monogram ´80 Ford Bronco 2 ´n 1 model kit but the tires and wheels are not accurate. Could you please tell me where to get the correct set? Many Thanks in advance
  18. Chevy Titan 90

    This is another one of my older models I have restored. Scott
  19. Mack DM 600

    This is one of my first models I built when when i was in seventh grade . I have restored it about five year ago . This model is about 43 years old . Scott
  20. What is the most accurate '73 to '87 kit out there? I just bought a Revell '77 GMC Wrecker Truck and was far less than impressed. The visor, sunroof, mirror holes, and incorrect rear window lower edge make this cab unuseable. Not to mention the cast-in engine block... However it was worth the price of admission for the one ton wheels and tires. Those are particularly difficult to source. What other pickups are out there which are more correct? I want to stay as stock as possible. I have the most interest in 1973 to '80 model years, prefer a 2WD if there is one, and I am okay with kit bashing. New guy here, so I hope I am not rehashing a question that has been answered before. But in my defense, I did multiple searches here and did not find the topic.
  21. Hello! This was my first kit that I completed. All comments and feedback appreciated.
  22. This here is a model my Dad had been tinkering with every now and then for the past few years. His hands hurt a little to much to enjoy building and he's very busy with work and life type stuff so he offered to me last week to either part out or scrap all together. Naturally I'm doing neither, instead I'm going to tear it down and re-build/restore it for him as a late Father's Day present. Going in a Overhaulin' style with it, he knows it's happening but won't really get to see it until it's finished. I'll be taking a few idea's he's thrown around for his 1:1 Suburban and add few of my own in as well. The end result will be something along the lines of a Overhaulin'/ Fast & Furious/ resto-mod type'ish (lots of "ish" in there) custom truck. Some of the idea's are as follows. The one big thing he'd like to see is the bare metal finish that's becoming quite popular. Got a plan that proved to be very promising. But I'm open to hearing ideas too, backup plans are always good to have. It's going bumper less. Among some of the ideas he's tossed around for his 1:1 removing the bumpers has been something he mentions often so I'll be applying that to this build. Changing the tail light set up in the back. Not going with the usual Corvette treatment, instead I'll go with a tail light design he's very found of and that's the '67 GTO's quad light. Big horsepower, naturally. Swapping the Standard 283 small block with the 396 big block out of the '67 Pro-street Chevelle. Tossing a supercharger on it to for good measure. Custom grill and a few other ideas that I'm still working out. I was initially hoping to have it done before Father's Day but 7 days in and I'm still doing body work. There's a ton more to be done after that and as nice as it would be I'm not going to rush it, I want to do it right and to the very best of my ability. Picture time. Starting point: Believe it or not that color is that $1.29 bottle paint in Wal-Marts craft section, brushed on even. That stuff's not half bad. Rims will also be getting stripped due to the paint and scratches on them. After stripping. Removed the grill mounts to make room for the custom grill. Removed the gas cap and side trim for a smooth body. Will also be bodying in the door handles as the handles themselves are missing. Lower plate for the back with the GTO style lights. And after the first round of body work, starting on the second round. Thanks for looking, more to come.
