My recent builds (New member:)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, hope everyone is well. I'm a new member to the forum and I'm already blown away by some of the builds I've seen so far, I'm already getting ideas on future builds! I have a 1962 Buick Electra in the works and can't wait to post updates on that when I get started. Here's some pictures of my builds I've done over the last month or so and even got my teenage son into this hobby after he seen the finished results:D I know my builds aren't perfect so criticism is always welcome, it makes for better builds in the future:)

Love that Cyclone, and the '64 Chev is also pretty sharp! Well done and model on! B)

Thanks, guys. The Cyclone and Taxi are two of my favourites. The Cyclone was meant to be stock but I have a habit of having an idea half way through a build, Lol. The last kit I built was the Ghostbusters Ecto 1A in the early 90's, so it's been a while. I built it up as an ambulance, or tried to, as I didn't have the right parts. It basically looked like a stripped down Ecto 1, xD None of my builds from then survive unfortunately, but I do plan on getting my first ever kit, a 1969 Oldsmobile 442.

Those are great Gareth, not a single one I wouldn't be proud to have in my own collection. None of us ever get 'em perfect lol.😄

Nice collection. I like the  Torino, the cab and the '61 Chev myself. ,but they all look great.

These are great looking and I look forward to seeing more of your builds. I like the showroom stock nature of most of these.

Thanks, guys. Yeah, they are pretty much all showroom stock. It's not something I stubbornly stick to, I'd like to do weathering, rusting etc but I'm not brave enough to venture there yet as I'm still relatively new to this. My most adventurous build was the Cyclone with the raised rear leaf springs, that and a custom steering wheel is all I did and I was nervous doing just those, lol. I had fun building that one though and definitely want to do another, maybe with a blower sticking out of the hood. I wasn't confident enough to do that with this Cyclone.
