Scale I Build

  1. I wanted a late 60s to early 70s period look, so I swapped out the kit tires and wheels for TorqThrust mags on the front with slot mags and Micky Thompson slicks on the rear. I do wish that I'd set the seat and roll bar back a little, but I guess that with each kit we build, we have to find one thing that bothers us and keeps us humble. This one was a two-fer though. Between tweezers that refuse to keep hold of the door handles and uncooperative fat fingers, I managed to set the door handles too high. The front valance on the kit had a factory defect on it that looked like somebody had laid a hot bar or something across it, so that was not used. The paint color was selected scientifically. I didn't want the orange, red, or even the black that is currently very popular, so I selected several colors of paint that I found interesting, laid them out on a table, closed my eyes and moved them around, and with my eyes still closed, picked up a can, and that's the color I used; Testors 1642 Gloss Custom Gold Metal Flake. I did make a couple of minor alterations to the engine and chassis from the kit offering. I'm one of the few modelers that really don't get much into engines, with most of my kits just receiving basic engines from the box, and the hoods glued shut. Once-in-awhile, I let loose and get serious in detailing. This Dodge got full engine and chassis detail. Here, Flo, one of the mechanics at Otto Ray Sing Classic Car Center inspects my work.
  2. Not a stock color, but the yellow paint didn't want to stick to the hood. Had trouble finding a stripe for the rear as well. Wanted a black stripe, but had to settle for the white. Went with the day two look. Hood. scoops, and tail lights are from Hart's Parts. The pics came out alright, but it's been storming here lately, so there wasn't much sun.
  3. hi everyone !😄 this is my REVELL 1/24 '70 dodge challenger T/A,an very nice kit and easy to build!! hope you guys like it!!🙂 and here is the video build if you are interested..🙂
  4. I built the Dodge A100 monster truck many years ago (approx. 1990). It has a number of scratchbuilt features including forward-tilting body, working simulated hydraulic cylinders for body and steering, working 4-wheel steering, full wiring & plumbing, etc. At the same time I started a rebuild of an old IMC Dodge L700 to match the MT. The frame was stretched and a tag axle added. An IMC Big Rig semi trailer donated it's floor for a custom drop-deck trailer. The project stalled and went into a box. I recently got it out and was determined to get it finished! This is the result. The ramps store under the trailer deck. Trailer wheels, tires and suspension came from AMT 1/32 reefer trailer
  5. Is there really no kit of the Dodge Challenger or Charger SRT Hellcat? I see there are die-cast models. Reason I asked, getting a Lamborghini Chetah kit, which is motorized, thought keeping with the Chrysler V8 theme would be cool.
  6. Here is my ‘82 custom Dodge Van! It’s the re-released “Bad Company” kit from MPC, with my own mix on the decals. The black flaming horse decals came from the MPC Pinto Pony Express re-issue, and the sunset flaming horse came from the recent release AMT ‘66 Mustang coupe kit. I thought the wizard decals in the kit looked goofy so I swapped in those horse flame decals. I think they look like they belong together! I painted the body in Tamiya X-12 Gold Leaf, and the interior in XF-7 flat red, with Future on the seats, dash and walls. This was my first time using Future floor polish and I am definitely a convert! The body paint really pops with three thin coats of future. FYI, it’s now called “Pledge Revive It Floor Gloss Original” - it took me a while to find the current name and I had to order it from Amazon. The interior is mostly box stock, but I added a simple mini fridge and 32” flat screen tv that I modeled up in CAD and had my brother 3D print for me. The TV wall mount is just a cut piece of scrap sprue. Overall this kit went together pretty well, but it took some finessing to get the interior tub and chassis to seat properly in the body. The large glass roof panel is definitely supposed to be glued in from the inside, but it then won’t fit with the cab partition panel in place. I left it removable and just set it in from the outside. I wanted to use the chrome side exit exhaust pipes, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to actually attach them to the body or frame without doing custom fab. I didn’t realize this until final assembly so I won’t bother adding an exhaust. This kit’s eye candy is up top anyway, no one is ever going to look underneath! I probably should have left the engine out too since you can’t really see it. This is definitely the wildest looking kit I’ve ever done, and I had a blast doing it. I grew up well after the custom van scene died out, but it definitely needs to make a comeback!
  7. Built this a while ago and recently added the decals and surfboards. Made the decals and plates on my laser printer and the surfboards are carved from balsa wood with sheet plastic fins. Built as a slammer with Fujimi wheels and tires from the 1/25 scale Lindberg Dodge Caravan snap kit. Paint is Duplicolor. Enjoy!! Cheers....Geoff
  8. Nothing special. The best car I ever owned is represented here. Paint is Duplicolor Chrysler Bright White. I added rub rails on the roof , repositioned the luggage rack and open the grille and replaced it with some weird netting I found, otherwise box stock. Comments & suggestions welcome.
  9. Just arrived is this Danbury Mint Dodge D100 Sweptside pickup truck. I found it for a very reasonable price and could not resist having been turned onto trucks by Tim's Budweiser collection. Overall I am very pleased with it but found the low price may have been influenced by some rash on the top of the cab. Have not decided yet whether to try and buff out the rash.
  10. Preliminary box art for the forthcoming 1/25 MPC Dodge D-100 Pickup kit:
  11. Hi folks, I got this recently from a modelling mate as a built kit amongst other stuff. As we all know, these days these Jo-Han kits come very expensive when bought new, so I took the opportunity to get this one at a very fair price, although it took quite some work because the front quarters had heavy dents on both sides since the kit was new. Of course, repairing those spots meant losing the beautiful "Dart 440" enblems, but that was the price to pay. I sanded down those spots and used Tamiya putty and sandable superglue for filling the dents. Then again sanding to make it fit to the body's contours. The result turned out okay in my eyes. Your feedback, as always, will be appreciated.
  12. The last today. One of my favorits in my collection, Also a kit from Revell what made a lot of fun to build. I built it in October last year and primary i bought it because of the very cool decals. But the decals were not to old, no, they broke, when i put it into the water. Irreparably. So i built it in Street legal version. Last week i took him again and made it lower to the groung. Looks better for me. Enough of words, here we go - Pictures please: ...
  13. My entry is going to be a 1958 Dodge W500 fire engine used by the US Forest Service. The truck on the far left is what I'm going for, although that is a '59 which has a different grill. I will be starting with a resin cab from SELtd and most of the rest will have to be kit bashed or scratchbuilt.
  14. Took a Lindberg Dodge Caravan and slab-sided it into a cool Surfie wagon. Built as a slammer, Fujimi wheels and tyres, custom paint job, homemade decals and balsa wood surfboards.
  15. Completed this morning. Not perfect but it is done. Painted in Tamiya Park Green with a black interior. The Hemi is from a Revell 67 Dodge Coronet kit. I wanted to use an AMT Hemi from the 68 Road Runner kit but the placement of the exhaust manifolds on the AMT heads did not line up properly with the exhaust pipes so I had to use one from a spare Coronet kit I had. "Hemi" door decals are from a spare Revell 68 Dodge Charger kit. Not much more to say, everything else came from the Daytona kit itself. Thanks for looking.
  16. Talk about polishing a turd. My dad got me this for Christmas and, if anyone knows me, I like stock vehicles. The Lindberg kit here is not stock. I ordered a Hart's Parts resin hood and got the stripes from eBay. I came out descent, but this kit is a nightmare of issues. The chassis is smaller than the body! I had to apply the glue and hold the body on the chassis for an hour to get it to stay on! The tail lights look horrible, the hood was glued shut because the engine wasn't stock, and I hate that there were no side mirrors. My stripes were also the wrong scale and I had to trim them. The sides are also wrong which caused an issue with the stripes as well. SAM_0447 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0448 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0449 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  17. The very first car model I ever tried to build was a Challenger T/A I got from Hungate's in Independence Mall Wilmington, NC. I always wanted to get another one and do it in Sublime green. I got a few gift cards and decided to use one of them to get this kit. It came out great. The kit is a pleasure to build.

  18. Been wanting one for the collection. Found resin parts from Hart's parts and found some stripes on ebay. Came out alright. The grill is a little warped and the rear end isn't exactly correct, but it does look pretty good for what it is.

  21. Hi all, here's another model I recently completed. Started in 2014, I lost motivation due to the quality of the plastic. This General Lee MPC kit was really poorly molded, even with quite a bit of bodywork there's still alot of defects that show through. I eventually decided to just paint it as is and at least get it off of the desk, which is why some areas are not perfect. I de-chromed everything on the chrome tree, and redid those parts with Alclad. The wheels I sprayed a Zero Paints gold and left them in a matte finish. The body is painted Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic with Tamiya Clear, and the interior the same Zero Paints Light Blue Metallic over black, matte finish. I chose not to do the rear panel black for something different, the rest is all stock. The most fun for me was the photoshoot and trying out new lighting techniques, it's there where the car really shines. Cheers!
  22. Revell 1970 Dodge Charger R/T, painted with Testors mystic green one coat lacquer and Testors wet look clear. White interior, basically box stock except for plug wires. Thanks for looking
  23. With all the excitement prior to the 24 Hour Build I literally forgot to take photos and post a model I had completed the year before! This was my 24 Hour Build project for 2014, that I didn't complete. In this photo you can see when I packed it in at 6:14 am on Sunday. There were things I didn't like about it, and knew I didn't want to finish it that way. One of the things you may notice are the HUGE almost working hinges in this kit. I had already built a Jimmy Flintstone resin van and he had correct hinges. So I did glue the doors shut and add ones the right size made from Evergreen round. For my Christmas Amnesty Project, I had made a commitment to myself to attack all those 80-90% finished models on my project shelf. I had completed the Model A TROG racer as my last build of 2018, and had moved right onto the Dodge D50 US Navy pickup as my first build for 2019. So this one is my second completion this year, and the 24 Hour Build Model A woody pickup is the THIRD. Me? With three completions in January? Unheard of! LOL Paint is Testors One Coat Flaming Orange because I absolutely love the color. I had painted my '65 Barracuda a similar color back in 1978. The paint laid perfectly. I don't believe I even clear coated it. That is the stock position for the spare tire. The kit doesn't have a stock gas filler so I drilled a hole and added one from my parts box. I think this one was from the AMT '53 Ford Pickup. Of course I can complicate anything, so I got the bright idea of replacing the kit's stock exhaust with duals. So I took two of the kit's stock mufflers (from two kits) and fabricated most everything else from pieces and parts of exhaust systems I keep in a shoe box for this purpose. The tail pipe ends are from the Revell Dart kits. I drill out the parts and assemble it all with bits of straight pin. I fit it tight so I can adjust the parts on the car before finalizing with glue, same way you'd do before clamping on a 1:1 car. I don't remember where I swiped the bucket seats from back in 2014. I did remember that I sprayed them with cheap spray paint that didn't dry during the 24 Hours! Now five years later, they are dry! I had to make seat bases for them to sit in the van. With no time constraints, I decided to add some seat belts. Model Car Garage buckles that I added depth to with Evergreen. And correct 1/16" ribbon for the belts. I bought a lifetime supply of seat belts on eBay (5 dif color rolls) for $10. I made a custom plate for the occasion. The bumpers are the same color as the interior. And here's the pair sitting together. Note how the hinges match now! I'm happy to have finished this one!
