Scale I Build

  1. Never cared to much for the 66 from the design stand point. Saw someone else's build the other day and thought it looked OK, so I decided to get one for the collection. The model came out real well, and the car doesn't look too bad in black. I believe someone had an issue with the windshield and rear window not having much room to glue in, and that was a major issue I had as well. Over all though, it's a good kit.

  2. Now finished! Mods are as followed: Chevy 350 LT1 block (painted Tamiya TS 74 Clear Red over Rustoluem Bright Silver) and transmission from Revell 4th Gen Camaro Z28 Corvette LT1 heads, headers, and waterpump/fan belts from Monogram '92 Corvette Convertible. Edlebrock valve covers from AMT 34 Ford parts Roots drag supercharger from AMT Silhouette, intake made from ribbed muffler system of unknown source Twin Turbos from TheGameBoy Resins, and air filters from spares bin sources. Radiator/intercooler looks to be from a Monogram Nascar piece and intake pipes were made from fr
  3. This AMT '66 Olds started life as a very old build crica 2009. It was a mild custom painted a similar red like on the box, and had a LS1 swap from a Revell 2002 Camaro with "20 mag wheels from a Revell 66 Chevelle SS Wagon. At some point it was mined for parts, mainly the wheels and LS1 motor, to go on other projects. After a few years of sitting on the shelf in pieces, it ended up scrapped in a storage crate until being found in a parts hunt very recently. Surprisingly, most of the essential parts were there even the front+ rear glass, which is rare when finding parts to resurrect an old bui
  4. The AMT 1966 Chevy Nova built to represent my favourite Australian Touring Car Champion - "Stormin Norman" Norm Beechey. Added a scratch built roll bar, wheels and tyres pinched from another kit, homemade decals, a rattle can exterior and vinyl paint interior. First pic is the real thing which now sits in a large private collection of historic Australian race cars.
  5. Hi guys ! This time again I am sharing with you my last transformation. Another Cadillac of course!. Last fall I discovered that Hasegawa had released a new version of their "Amercian 66" Series, ( including their Coupe Deville ) into a "lowrider" series. I jumped on the occasion to buy 2 kits in order to create from them a series 75 limousine. Hasegawa's kits are not as refine as the Jo-Han's Coupe Deville of the same year, but working from Johan's 66 Caddies is inconcevable to me, since these promos or kits are very rare and really expensive. And to be honest, Hasegawa's are really good
  6. Hey guys! This is the 66 Suburban kit from revell, here it is so far.
  7. I started this back when I was 6 years old, incredible it never got destroyed. Maybe now I can finish it.
  8. Back at it again, with a vw beetle now, this is going to be a replica of my real one that i too am currently working on, which you can see here: http://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewtopic.php?t=636548&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=0 Here it is, and all the work i have done on it so far: The filler is for bumper holes, indicator holes and some vent on the front of the car holes, i havent finished sanding down the front yet, or the back actually. I really need to paint the exhaust again, i am terrible with a brush, i stole the exhaust from a secret project im doing and just bent it
  9. This is a commission build I did over last summer for a gentleman's 50th birthday. The Malibu in some of the pics is also a commission build I did for this guys friend. Both of the real cars travel to various shows in New England so, if you see them around you may see the models with them. Feel free to ask them about the builds. It's a cool story. Anyway, on to the model. I based it on AMT's '66 Fairlane 427. I notched the rear bumper and made custom exhaust. I modified the rocker moldings and added wheels and tires from Revell's '62 Chevy kit. I also photo reduced the plates and side emblems.
  10. Before i start I am going to provide some back story to this build. When i was younger (9 or 10) my grandma loved cars. my grandpa had just passed away and she needed something to do in her free time so she started building model cars and being the young kid i was i got interested and started building for a few years and then we moved away from my grandma and i just kinda stopped until about a year ago well my grandma just passed and this has gotten me interested and her dream car was a yellow 66 fastback mustang so i guess its time to build a mustang as much as i hate ford. so i have a few q
  11. Hello Guys! First of all: please excuse for my bad English! Finally can I post a assembly that ran in secret over a few months! So, I stopped with other projects that were in line and only dedicated myself exclusively to this Beetle. Follows a small descriptive of the event so that everyone understands the rules and project development: All modellers will mount the same kit and a single assembly line: of the box (OOB). The kit was the Beetle from Tamiya and small exceptions were released – wheels and suspension could be changed, only wiring the motor and detail the belts inside the car. N
  12. Hello Guys! Done: Tamiya Low 'N' Ru5t Bug. WIP: http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=98645 Let's go! Some Close-ups...
  13. This was the Jenking racer kit. I wanted a stock looking car though. Lots of decals, but non for a stock version. Came out well though for a kit that felt cheap.
  14. I'm wanting to see everyone's opinions on this model! Thanks! Cameron
  15. My favorite of my Chevelles.
  16. I really liked this one.
  17. Here it is, the first kit I've started in more than 20 years! I picked up this beautiful AMT Fairlane 427 over 10 years ago; finally I decided to do something about it... Stage One, research. I went online and found the exact car at www.mustangandfords.com Stage Two, more research. What new tricks are out there for building plastic models in the 21st Century, anyway? Found this little gem at my local hobby shop; Stage Three, quite dragging things out and actually commit. So, step by step, I actually got on with it. Put a lot of time and effort into finishing the engine block
  18. Hey guys, this is my first build of this year. Took me a bit to get back into it. It was my first time using BMF and first time weathering. Let me know what ya'll think!
  19. I just got a 1966 Mustang for Christmas and I am making an exact replica of mine. The problem is the model has a center console molded into the interior. How can I remove the center console without damage?
  20. Hi everybody, here is my 66 Riviera - to make three, in this section this week, complete. After a failed paintjob for a cool Lowrider, a missing enginebay in the kit, i had "no other chance" to safe him not to throw in the trash. Take a look at my Lowrider... stay a while for the pics inside...
  21. Hi fellows today i want to show you another work, if a car tells a story - like my bulli "Horst" does. This i built in April 2010 and it was my first model, that i opened the doors. And, till a hardtopcoupe isn't hard enough, i made it with a convertible. Why? Of course, it belongs to the story: This Olds is in a garage, they want to sale it. But, this stupid mechanic, how wants to change the sparkplugs, does nothing but s***. He has demolished a sparkplug. So he must pay for his own foolishness and repair it. The second guy has to clean up the car all over, but he is thinking, he has enou
