Scale I Build

  1. One of the first car kits I ever got was a 1969 Olds 442. I used the wrong glue and it came out OK, but a few parts fell off in the engine area. I also used the wrong paint by accident for the interior and it screwed things up too. I knew I'd like to get another at some point and when I got my gift card as a bonus at work; I went ahead and pulled the trigger on purchasing a new kit. The old kit was red, and I wanted to find another color to show off the W30 package under the hood. I remembered that when my dad and I first moved into my step-mom's house they had a few junk cars around
  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. Normally i'm not in to these (and supposedly they're rare for being kinda curbsides), but a few years ago I saw the '97 HHO reissue and the 1980 Street Freak issues cheap as some shows and figured what the hey. White/Red/Blue is the 1997 issue of the Hurst Harry Olds (in the vintage Monogram boxart), Green one was the 1980 Street Freak reissue (which is really the same Hurst Harry Olds with new decals). Green 442 was finished weeks ago but was in progress on/off for about 4 years waiting for paint, which was applied on one of the worst and windiest thanksgivings ever that tossed the body aroun
  5. I enjoyed this kit, I've never owned it before and like Oldsmobiles. Fit was fine, not one issue. Decals are great, went on smooth. Only issue was hand painting the loooonnnggggg chrome strip down the fenders and up around the windows, but the molding is prominent enough to let you do it with a good paint marker dragged sideways. (I don't do BMF) You get four of the new Firestone Wide Oval tires and two Goodyear blue stripe slicks too. Two wheel options, stock and custom.
  6. Nice retro box art in the 1969 annual style. Are the Firestone Wide Oval tires new?

    '66 Olds 442

    I've been away from modelling for a while. This is the first kit I've worked on in 15 years... This kit went together really well. I had no problems with any of the fitment. This was a great kit to get back into the hobby with. The color is Duplicolor GM Blue (lacquer). The top is Rustoleum white (enamel).First I sprayed the car with blue then tried to spray the white. Big nono. As you may guessed, the white paint cracked. It took me a minute to figure out what happened. Then I fixed my situation. I also invested in a lighted magnifier. Best purchase ever! Thanks for looking
  8. Need to work on the grill a bit, bt other than that; it came out good.
  9. I really liked this one.
  10. We got one or two of these kits in at work and I've never seen it before in nearly 2 decades of screwing around with plastic and 14 years of working for retailers that carry kits It's an AMT Olds 442 that apppears to be a well detailed, modern tool, made like the AMT '67 Impala's separate frame and all form what the box art shows! http://round2models.com/models/amt/66olds-442 Was this one ever released and I just missed it, was it lost in the shuffle of the Racing Champions takeover and just never released until now under the Round 2 label, or is this a newly tooled kit from Round 2 unde
  11. 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
