Scale I Build

  1. Hello everyone, i finally got this Fleetside project done, and its about time to post it here. I used a lot of aftermarket photoetching parts from High light model studio and had much fun with detailing and painting progress. I did learn alot about weathering techniques and all painting is done with brush. Im already looking forward to my next project. But less talk now and more photos Workbench topic:
  2. My new project! Im going to use alot of time for detailing and painting and every progress. Hopefully its my masterpiece when its finished and done. So shortly, Its going to be something special Engine has started for progress.. Not much happened so far but maybe on next week i have more time to make some serious progress.. Engine is from kit, and those Edelbrock valvecovers are from some AMT model kit, i believe its `55 Chevy Stepside.. Im using Highlight Model Studio detailing parts for this build, and here are especially photoetch set designed for 64-66 Chevy pick ups.. First i started modifying tail lights, i am filling original places with glue and plastic sprue number plates, then i will sand them smooth and use filler later for really smooth finish.. PE light will be glued there, just when im about doing final detailing.. Body work first..
  3. Finally finished after starting in in June of 1998.
  4. So here is one that I started back in 2002. I want to get it finished because I have decided to do the same kit for the 13th Annual 24 hour build. I figured if I'm going to get one done in 24 hours, then I should get this one done first! Here is where I'm at right now. I did the wheel well trim, seat trim, dash trim, tail light trim, and hood chrome all with a Molotow 2mm chrome pen. I love it! How did I ever get by without it? (By using BMF that's how! PIA it is!) Body is painted with Auto touch up "ultra marine blue with a clear coat (I think) or else I polished it out. It has been too long for me to remember, but I think I just clear coated it. Ken's fuzzy fur carpet. I still need to do more on the dash, like instrument decals and some finer painting of the chrome. Door trim is BMF while seat trim is Molotow pen. I have a decal for the back as well, I just could not resist doing the pen on it though. Outside of tail light bezels are the pen while the inside is Testors Chrome paint. Valve covers and intake are from the AMT 62 BelAir while the block is from the kit. Thanks for looking! All comments welcomed.
  5. I started this one I don't know how long ago, probably around 2015 or so. Anyway, playing with the Yenko Nova and 68 Chevelle I thought I'd get Chevy's other heavy hitter back. What is funny is I compared this body to the AMT 68 Camaro, and I think the AMT version looks a little smaller than it should be. What do you guys think?
  6. Hey guys! This is the 66 Suburban kit from revell, here it is so far.
  7. Getting back to this one final. Did some work on the interior, Tamiya Dark German grey, flat aluminum, ultra bright BMF, and kit supplied decals. I think it come out really well, just some touch up on the aluminum on the front seat. I have some Ken's Fuzzy fur for the carpet area.
  8. Calling this one done. It was a good build. Thank you to Aaronw for the help USFS decals. Might make some wildland tools for the bed in the future.
  9. Hi , guys ! This is my Impala Lowrider. The kit is the Revell police car. Greetings from Jan
  10. Ok so here is a project that I am very excited about! Building Junior Johnson's 1963 Holly Farms Impala. I took a 63' impala kit and am pretty much building the racecar from the ground up. I don't have too many pictures yet of the progress but here are a few... This was my first ever attempt to cut a door off anything. Some progress on the scratch built roll cage
  11. Hi everybody, i didn’t published here for long time ago, but when i see all positive comment on my two other post I will say then I have to show my work here ! I just begin to work on this Elky , I like the new goodies in that edition , soap box, decals and new Torque Thursh wheels and red line tire ! My work began by assembly the rear bed, seats, and the big block Chevy 396 ! I choose to use the Torque Trush wheels with redlined tires! Due to that I removed the white lettering from the yires other side !
  12. Miniman Factory M1008 CUCV kit in 1/35 This will be my first all resin (and PE) kit build. kit contents The following are side by sides with the MENG "Toyota" Tomorrow I'll post pics of the Miniman Factory Chevy cab next to 1/24 and 1/25 scale truck kits. Thanks for looking ...
  13. The Chevrolet Corvette Prototype (GM intern EX-52) 1952 began its life as a scatch on a paper napkin. Shortly was introduced the First American Sport Car in the Motorama show in 1953. The car is existing still today but the engine was changed by Mr. Zora Duntov to a V8 engine. So the car to see today is the very first Corvette V8 ! I modified a Corvette 1953 Revell kit back to prototype: on outside was not very much to do. More differences were in the engine compartment. Here I got help with two photos from GM Media Archive. Enjoy the pictures and any comments are welcome.
  14. Decided to merge a bit of my favorite JDM tuning influences with a rock-star of a US sportscar. The original HOtwheels version was nice enough but had some glaring issues such as the big/little wheels sizes. Putting a smaller wheel on the rear meant there was a wider wheel gap and a slumped down rear end. This is the first time I work with modelling putty. Work done: Lowered. Wheel well filled in. Widebody conversion. Custom front splitter. Rocketbunny style rear spoiler. Side mirrors. Wheels cut and reassembled further out to sit flush with wider track. IMG_3597.xmp
  15. I was going to wait a little while longer before I started this thread on my 1976 Chevrolet Bison stake truck so I had more progress to show; but since we are already close to the end of the month, and the rules do say "monthly updates" I figured no time like the present. Here is the kit that I am starting with: Yes, the venerable AMT Chevrolet Bison. The plan is to replace the 8V92 that comes in the kit with a 6V92T, shorten the hood to a 108" BBC from the kits 116" BBC, swap out the air ride suspension for the spring suspension from the AMT GMC Astro/95, then add the stake body from the AMT Ford C600 kit (thank you, Aaron). I have had the Auslowe Detroit Diesel 6V92T kit kicking around for a while now, and I figured this would be perfect: Oh, man, was I ever wrong! Ever since I started building this engine back on January 1st, it's been one step forward & two steps back! I'm going to toss the Auslowe engine idea, and replace it with a 6V92T from GW Trucks. Hopefully more progress next month!
  16. I am using the AMT 57 Corvette frame and engine under the AMT 55 Corvette body because I feel the 57 frame is overall superior to what comes in the 53/55 kits. I have the front spindles in so I could see how it would sit. Overall look Rear close up Front close up I also did some boring things like paint the engine, sand some on the body, etc.. The AMT 57 Corvette frame really works great on the 55 body. Thanks for looking.
  17. Hi guys I`m Cosmo and this is my first post in here. I`m working on a conversion project that started from a MPC `76 Chevy Caprice 2-door coupe version. For some reason the body part was not molded well when I received the model and I think it`s beyond repairable. So I decieded to chop the damaged A-pillar and fender section and replace it with epoxy-bounded Foil material and gave it a damaged appearance. I always have a thing for the big, full-size american 4 door sedan in the 60`s and 70`s. So I converted the MPC 2-door coupe version to a 4-door sedan. I cut the B-pillar and fill the quarter window because I prefer a more traditional and thicker C-pillar which is different from the actual `76 Caprice sedan, but personally I prefer the look. I also rescribed the door panel lines and trunk. I used sterene sheet to reform the roof section and I sanded off the side trim to give the Caprice a more "base model" appearance. -------------------------------------------------------- I`ll keep the progress updated in here. Comments are greatfully appreciated!
  18. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Chevrolet-Bel-Air-150-210-Bel-Air-/162142018610?forcerrptr=true&hash=item25c06adc32:g:3OwAAOSwIgNXjsD-&item=162142018610 Several dozen reference shots, including chassis.
  19. This took only 2 days to build. A nice kit, sprayed in One Coat De Ja Blue and Blazing Black 2-tone with dark grey interior. Extra decals by Dirty Donny.
  20. Just finished this last night. I call it "Mack The Knife". Based on Revell's '57 Chevy Ragtop and inspired by a real one I had seen at Lead East a couple of years ago. Very fun kit to build. It is Tamiya White with red black and white interior. The top is krylons flat white. the caps are from Modelhaus and the spots are parts box finds.
  21. This one will be hitting my bench shortly. Music is my main hobby, and I'm a huge fan of 80s metal and rock, so when I saw this kit, I had to have it. Testor's call it the Boyd's Hauler, I call it the Van Hauler. I find it amusing that they keep referring to the unnamed rock star. Licensing I guess. Anyway, lots of detail in this kit. Much better than the usual AMT Chev trucks, although I'll have to compare to my 454SS kit and see how close they are for tooling. Comes with the Van Halen decals sheet, Van Halen stripe wheels, Corvette engine and suspension. Building this one box stock, with a few extra details.
  22. I plan on build Caprice coupe with the fishbowl glass 77-79. I have required the interior,body and glass. Does anyone know if there was made any kit`s,diecast or aftermarket options for the early versions? Any suggestions are welcome but in 1:24/1:25 scale only. Thanks Tommy
