Scale I Build

  1. Picked up the kit because I wanted another exotic car to add to the collection. I thought the car looked beautiful and finally found a kit at a good price. That's all I've got good to say. The kit itself is garbage. The fit is awful, the directions vary from vague to just wrong, the prongs to fit in the holes are for ants, and no thought was put into how it was to be built. It was a frustrating build that made me want to quit. The clear plastic is messed up because it said to install the windshield from the inside, but it doesn't fit that way........doesn't quite fit from the outside either, but it does fit better than the inside. The muffler hangs down vertically. The exhaust that connects to the other muffler, I had no idea how it was supposed to be installed. It didn't fit any way I tried to place it. The front tire look like a low rider, but they're installed right. The windows have poor fit. One was a tight fit and the other was too small. One door fits perfect and the other sticks out a bit. It is frustrating, but I guess it looks ok. SAM_1394 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1395 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1396 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1397 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. Been wanting some exotic cars for the collection, but something that wasn't a Ferrari or Lambo. Since I got the stimulus check I decided to see what I could find. This Bora was pricey, but not as pricey as some of the other exotics I found. So, I decided to get it. It's not a bad looking car, but I wish they had a kit for the Ghibli. There's not much to the kit, but I think it came out pretty good.

  3. A high dollar 3 day road trip to support the Phoenix Art Museum. Always has a bunch of interesting cars. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2016-04-10-Copperstate-1000/
  4. It's the only way to get one, so I'm treating this as a white-metal kit, rather than a "detailed die-cast"! It's the Mondo Motors model. The one I received shows every sign of corner-cutting and cost reduction compared to the reviews of the model on the web. There was nothing like the level of detail painting you can find online -- just one overall red body, a few black grilles, and nothing else... So, I stripped all the paint, and primed all the black interior plastic for a new colour scheme... ...and a couple of days later, here we are... The moulded detail on the dash and the engine bay is actually pretty crisp -- at least the equivalent of a current Revell Ferrari. The colour is the same Rosso Brunello as the 3500 GTi -- I want them as a pair/compare and contrast... The dash isn't glued in place... The main problem is access around the seats, but as you can see, there's a good level of detail to paint. Black carpets, and dark wood trim with this leather, all picked from the configurator... bestest, M.
  5. This started life as a nicely moulded but crudely painted (and in many places not painted) Mondo die-cast. I stripped all the paint, and detail-painted the nicely detailed black plastic parts for the interior and engine. I still need to add some chrome badges and scripts, but that may take a while since I'm still working on how to do it! bestest, M.
  6. This is the ancient Aurora kit, re-issued by Monogram in the 90s. It's actually pretty good plastic, with plenty of detail to work with. The opening doors, bonnet and boot bring their own issues, but the end result is rather nice compared to today's buttoned-up kerbside kits with aerodynamic under trays. As you can see, there's a fair bit of work to fine-tune the kit into a more accurate representation of the original classic, which is a truly beautiful, and very purposeful looking GT car. The windscreen is still not right -- it should be more upright, and the base is much more semi-circular, not the large rectangular cut-out Aurora gave us. Personally, I think all the shape issues in this area come from placing the firewall to make room for the operating door hinges, which mean that it's too far forward. The engine is nice, and a bit of time with wiring pays big dividends. Many thanks to Skip Jordan who has been nudging me to give this a try for a couple of years, provided invaluable reference resources, and acted as chief cheerleader along the way. I'm now going to go away and build something from a state of the art kit, out of the box, before I even THINK about tackling the Singer 911 kit-bash... bestest, M.
