  1. Thanks Mike. Yea, I like that old school look. Thanks Bob. Thanks David. Thank you. Thank you. Thanks Michelle. Ollie's had these for 12.99, and it was 33% off that when I got it during the holidays.
  2. Same as Mike. I really like the Tamiya Acrylics, they go on great using Mr Hobby Leveling Thinner. The only primer I use now is the Mr. Surfacer 1500. I have used the Createx also, it works well but as Mike said you must use their thinner. I use Vallejo model color for brushing details, and just lately tried air brushing with it and it did very good, may start using it more.
  3. This is the Monogram Classic Cruiser kit I picked up from Ollie's. It's a nice kit, went together well except the header pipes/side pipes were kinda a pain. The engine is a 302 with dual turbos. The battery location seems wrong for this car. There was no rad hose in the kit, had to make my own. I left off the horn, it just looked too big and out of place under the hood. The body paint is Tamiya Metallic Grey, the interior is Rustoleum Nutmeg Brown. All comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  4. Got the chassis done. The molded in battery is in a weird place. I don't think I have ever seen a 69 z/28 with the battery in that location.
  5. I like the stance, old school 60's. Last 2 photos are with the decals and clear coat on. Trim is done with a molotow pen, but it doesn't show well on the metallic grey body. I would have done BMF, but I don't have any right now.
  6. Thanks Bob. Thank you. Yes, it will be the final color. I will do some trim work with a molotow pen. I did a 51 Chevy pickup in this color and thought it looked good. Decided to do a matching Camaro.
  7. The dual turbo SBC is ready.
  8. Oh yeah Bob, that is going to be cool.
  9. Thanks Carl. Thanks Mike. I have two Ollie's in my area, but both are about 35 miles away from me.
  10. Got the Tamiya Metallic Grey on the body.
  11. Great looking 40 Ford Mike. Nice paint. I've got some Createx I need to start using.
  12. That turned out real nice Bob. Great job.
  13. Thanks Bob. The wheels do look good. I'm wondering what the engine is supposed to be. A duel turbo 350 maybe, IDK.
  14. Well, I think I will build it. I build mostly OOB, maybe put some plug wires on the engine.
  15. The interior will be Rustoleum Nutmeg Brown. Going with Tamiya Metallic Grey for the body.
  16. Time for some muscle. Picked up at Ollie's during the holiday sale, it was 33% off the 12.99 price.
  17. Tried a different paint for this one. Vallejo Model Color Gun Metal Blue. It thinned well with Mr. Hobby leveling thinner. Came out ok. This was the Coke kit, but I didn't use any of the decals. Nice kit. Mostly OOB build, I added plug wires and I didn't like the looks of the big chrome headlight bezels so I just kinda frenched them in and put some foil behind them. I lost the center post for the windshield, made another one, but forgot to install it before I took the photos. All comments welcome and thanks for looking.
  18. I didn't like the big chrome headlight bezels, so I gave it a kinda custom look pushing the lens into the opening and putting some foil behind them.
