Scale I Build

  1. This model is the first full resin body conversion I have ever attempted. It is a 1968 Chevelle SS casted by Ed Fluck of Drag City Castings http://www.dragcitycasting.com . It was pretty easy to work with, which is nice, since I do not have any body work skills. I simply removed the flashing and thinned areas as needed. A couple of donor kits were used in this build. The first was an AMT 68 El Camino. From that I took the windshield, dash, steering wheel, front seats and console. The interior tub and complete chassis were donated by an AMT 69 Olds 442. It has a very detailed chassis with
  2. To start with, this was a TOTAL parts-box build. I do not have much of a parts box to begin with. All of the spare parts I own (except for wheels and tires) would fit into two model boxes. Any way, I was trying to imagine a build that would be more than a Hot Wheels paint scheme on a box stock kit. On the other hand I do not have the talent to fabricate one of the wild creations Hot Wheels has produced over the years. I needed something that would look cool AND, be within my skills as a builder. One day, I went to sit on the couch and my youngest son Keenan had left one of his Hot Wh
  3. I have always felt that Revell’s 1968 and 1969 Corvette kits captured the look and feel of that C3 body style the best. My only beef with this kit is that the rear window is incorrect. But I don’t feel the need to correct all of them. Maybe just the replicas of my father’s car. Over the years, they have been offered in many different variations. The 68 has been offered as a convertible only. A couple times with the “rare” small block hood. Oddly, I never cared much for the big block 427 hood. I did like the L88 hood much better. I may be biased because my father has an aftermarket L88 hoo
  4. Hello all! This is one of my first model car builds in a while, mainly because school is out and summer is here. So now I have more time to grow my skills in this wonderful hobby. Here it is so far, I'm still working on the chassis and little things here and there. I decided to make this a sleek and custom Corvette. I want to use the taillight pieces below, which may look like they are from a Corvette, but no. They are from a '58 Ford Thunderbird. A custom spice! This is the first model car I've done with a flat-color interior. All of my previous builds have gloss black int
  5. Question: I see a 1968 Chevrolet pickup promo for sale, $110 asking price. It has a nasty crack in a bed side, missing fender logos and gas cap (I can make a gas cap). I saw a nice one for $185 at a model show. Would the AMT bed fit ok on this? Is the price out of line?
  6. After finishing the Buick GSX, I was eager to start on the brand new 1968 Chevelle from Revell. Almost 20 years ago I painted a couple cars that were to replicate a pair of Baldwin Motion cars sold ordered by Roberto Schneider. The Camaro cost $9,300 and the Chevelle was over $7,000! The Chevelle was used by Mr. Schneider to flat tow the Camaro to Texas and eventually into Mexico. I’ve always wanted to build the pair in towing configuration and was well on my way when a couple problems arose with the Chevelle. #1 was the tail lights. They are very inaccurate. #2 was, the stipe I
  7. here it is everybody. it is a revel 1968 dodge dart GSS painted Tamiya chrome silver. it has a wired distributer and the trim is the Molotow crome pen. it didn't turn out as good as I wanted but oh well its all a learning experience and the next one will be better. what do you think?
  8. From a short-lived British T.V. programme Colour Me Pop , the Small Faces performing tracks off of Ogden's Nut Gone Flake (1968) , which was their last album .
  9. This was the third kit I've worked on since I've gotten back into the hobby. I've been away from building for 15 years. This kit went together rather well. I cannot say there was much of a problem. The paint is Duplicolor MC201 Metalcast Anodized Blue with a Duplicolor Plymouth silver base. As I work more and more, looking back I should have rubbed out the orange peel. I'm learning... Thanks for looking
  10. Hello, I am new to the forum! That being said, I thought I would share my recent car project. My stepdad owns a 1968 dodge coronet 440 with a 318 cubic inch engine. So I decided to make a scale model of it. I shaved the R/T badges from the 1968 R/T body I found online. Used painted masking tape for the black vinyl top. I also had to modify the engine mounts for the smaller engine to fit with the roadrunner frame. I have added a picture of the actual car for comparison. Parts Used: 1968 MPC Dodge Coronet R/T Body 1975 MPC Chrysler 318 c.i. Engine AMT Torque Thrust wheels w/ Firestone Tir
  11. Hi all. Well this is been a slow ongoing model build. I finally got the body sprayed and just yesterday I clear coated it. This is the first time I've gone this this level of spraying using a Badger air brush. These pix are before clear coat. The undercarriage is based on some pre undercoated Shelby bodies I've seen on the web. They have that little over spray on them which I thought was cool to try. Next step is wet sanding/compounding the final clear coat. Really want to see if I can make this thing shine!
  12. Hi all, I've been working on a '68 Shelby Mustang for about 1 year now. Trying to get back into it from a long time not building. I wanted to really step up my game with an air brush. I just finished with the color and now I'm going to be going to the clear coating. I looked up Shelby Mustangs and they had this cool "over spray" on bottom of car when it was not undercoated. So I went the red undercarriage and did a little overspray for the bottom. Haven't done much else yet.
  13. Help! I'm trying to finish up Revell's '68 Dodge Charger R/T "special edition", but the front stance is too high. I'm about to pull it apart, but wondered if anyone else had this issue?
  14. Built many years ago 1970's
  15. Built many years ago from the Mission Impossible kit
  16. My latest is a black 1968 Mustang GT-500 Drag car. It’s an older AMT kit and I found it to be a bit challenging. It took me about 2 months to finish this one as I put it down many times because it frustrated me. I made the drag version of the car and put the larger engine in it. I could never get the drag exhaust to fit properly and since I had worked on the car for so long and was so far along I simply did not put an exhaust on it in favor of tossing the entire model in the trash. The sponsor stickers on the side came from other kits, such as the AMT Lowboy and the Revell Peterbilt 359 C
  17. Hello. Anyone know what would be a good donor for a 1968 Dodge Coronet R/T? Mostly for chassis,interior and glass. How would the 68 AMT Road Runner be? Thanks Tommy
  18. Just completed! SS badging from the Monte Carlo SS kit... (hard to see) Trim - Gloss Black, Body - Inca Gold, Top - Black Vinyl... Hood stripes - '69 Camaro... "CHEVROLET" lettering - Chevy Pickup kit....
  19. Call this one done. I could not find a outside mirror for it,but at least 7 rear view mirrors,typical. This one has the rear view mirror molded into the window AMT 68 Camaro Z28,orange car on box,tons of flash and little detail. VCG Resin brake booster. AMT 67 Impala engine.transmission heater hoses and mid-muffler forward exhaust. Shorten drive axle. Tamiya TS30 base and TS13 clear. Stock rallye wheels with Pegasus alu sleeves. Rubber alternator/fan belt cut from rubber sheet i got from Mike DeLuco. Engine decal from VCG Resin and Slixx. Bent some chrome sprue over a can
  20. Hi, this is my 68 Charger. I tried to give this model a little bit of a drag racer feel. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Enjoy
  21. Here is one that I have been messing with off and on. I figured I would try to throw this one together but really have not done that much with it yet. I have a hurt hand from an injury a few weeks ago so it is kinda hard to work on anything at the moment. I have had the Baldwin Motion Vette for a while but it was missing the body and the wheels and the motor. I found the rebel racer at Hobby Lobby for $7 and used it as a doner.
  22. I dug this up from last year, it needs a little TLC but its technically done...so I'm posting it here.
  23. Greetings all. I have recently gotten back into model building after a 12 year or so hiatus and am planning on a rather ambitious project. I am planning on building both cars that were involved in the iconic chase scene from "Bullitt" as well as building a display scene that shows one of the segments of the chase as well. Fortunately, I am from and still live in San Francisco (that's right, Native San Franciscans still exist and live here) so getting to the locations for reference photos of the buildings and streets will be a bit easier for me rather than having to rely on what's on film.
