  1. 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
  2. The OG crow

    You probably seen my replica of Justin’s new car, but I recently had a customer put in a order for the old one and I might as well share the progress.
  3. Porsche 930

    Just finished my 4th build of the year. When I got the kit, the roof was crushed and the a-pillars and vent window frames were all broken. I felt bad for the little car and had to restore it. Paint is Duplicolor GM blue with clearcoat by Future. I could only salvage 2 of the decals, even with Micro Mark's help - the front Porsche medallion and the PORSCHE lettering on the tail lights, but that in itself was a lifesaver. Thanks to the members for pointing me towards a set of instructions. Comments are welcome!
  4. Since I failed at my first attempt to create a single turbo car, I am going to use what I learned to bring my messed up 68 mustang back to life. This is going to be another salvage build lol. Hopefully this is the last one.
  5. This is my second attempt at recreating the Golden Gorilla, I am way excited for this!
  6. I found this website after Googling and stumbled upon Shelbytonas thread about the Daytona model he was working on. Unfortunately, his thread or project appears to be unfinished. I'm definitely going to use his photos as references though. I owned two of these cars in real life, both 1988's, both Shelby Z's, both white with maroon interior but one had a blue stripe. Anyways, here's the progress so far: The car: I'm choosing the striped one as my inspiration because I wanted to try painting stripes instead of using decals. This is also the first time I've used an airbrush, which I'm borrowing from my brother, and first time with acrylics. I think the bulk of the painting with airbrush is done, now onto the gluing and brushes.
  7. I started on this birdman replica car two days ago for a build off with a few friends of mine. I have until the end of July to finish this but, I will probably finish in a few days. I'm using the Pontiac firebird kit for this build as well
  8. just an update on this mustang build. it should be done soon
  9. my second replica build. In the future I will do birdman's firebird. Also checkout my murder nova car and the rest of my builds.
  10. The murder nova is one of my previous builds. I also have the crow in the works.
  11. One of my other builds I started with a big scratch built turbo. It's gonna be another small tire car with a tube chassis.
  12. I've been building models for exactly 1 year now. Most of my builds have been turbocharged outlaw cars and have scratch built chassis along with a lot of other things.
  13. "Track Rat" Fox body build

    Got this one finished up today, lot of time went into little changes and details. I am really happy with how this one turned out. build thread here http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=93020&st=0&p=1251164
  14. Kinda want to build this car in 1:1, so i'll try it here. Kind of a no nonsense, make it go fast and look "ok" kind of build, one you can have a blast in and who cares if it gets dinged. Not much to show, but removed the side molding, carved in the body line and removed the 5.0 badge (not going to keep the 5.0)
  15. Hi. Here is my build for the Cannonball Run. AMT gluebomb bought out of Ebay. I just imagine the Impala to be a very comfy car to travel long distance in. Of course i had to try make it pack some punch for when it will overtake the others lol. The recipe is simple,fullsize,bench/sofa,big block with an huge turbo,manual, fuel injection for "fuel economy". As for looks it`s pretty bland,and it got a little taller on the rear then i had planned,but i just stuck with it. Here are some pictures. Thanks for looking and comments are welcome.
  16. this is my Datsun bluebird with a Honda S2000 F20C and a custom turbo setup.I built a roll cage,carbon fiber oil catch can,HKS style blow off valve,front mount oil cooler,exhaust turbo manifold,intercooler, optima battery,and turbo piping.The engine and turbo came from model scientist .com.I also added Advan rims,stretched the tires and lowered it.thanks for looking any questions let me know.
  17. just got the reissue today. its a straight reissue of the old Monogram kit issued last when the car was new. can only be built stock. comes with a nice decal sheet. with all the logo's for the car, and some SCCA decals.
