Scale I Build

  1. http://www.vanpeltsales.com/FH_web/flathead_partsdrawings_links.htm A gold mine of reference material on flathead Ford V-8s and chassis parts.
  2. I'm going to be doing this little build as I’m getting back into this. The paint choice will either be a Metallic Black or Gloss Red. I will be using wheels from a 1:32 Jada Bigtime Muscle Wide Body Camaro (Shown in second pic and mock up shown in third). Planning on getting a coat of primer on the body soon. I will Update everyone as I go. Hope everyone enjoys!
  3. 1964 Ford Snow Cat Van - For Sale Having the right vehicle makes all the difference in the world in wintery conditions, and you would be very, very hard-pressed to find a better one than this 1964 Ford Falcon Club Wagon. Actually, to be honest, it’s a mashup between the Ford van and a 1974 Snowcat, hence the tracks, and it’s done just as we like. The van body is in beautiful shape and the 302/C6 automatic powertrain is intact. ... Is there a Snowcat model?
  4. Here’s my ‘79 Pinto Cruising Wagon! I added a custom panoramic moon roof, smoothed out the window filler panels as best as I could, and I swiped the surf board and surf decals from Revell’s ‘32 Ford “Rat Rod” kit. Otherwise it’s box stock. It’s painted Tamiya TS-30 Silver Leaf outside, Krylon “Pimento” inside. This kit was definitely a challenge but overall it goes together pretty well!
  5. After loosing out on several full detail AMT Ranger kits on eBay, I gave up and picked up this promo kit for $10. I was hoping to just do some quick detailing and not repaint the whole thing, but the plastic was discolored around the door mirrors for some reason. Also the splash graphics were stickers and looked way too toy-like in person. I repainted the body in Tamiya X-13 Metallic Blue with XF-56 Metallic Gray for the bumpers and flares. Not much else to it! Hopefully Round 2 will re-release these at some point, I’d love to do a full build of the step-side Splash version!
  6. My goal is to build the worst Foxbody I can imagine. I'm starting with AMT's 88 GT kit. I am using a few unused bits from a 90LX that Revell released, I recently built as well. I will be scratching out whatever I need to complete the vision. Enjoy... Went into primer... I am going with a targa roof instead of T-Tops. I was having trouble getting the lower front valance so i cut the whole clip off and worked these pieces together. This is how the real car is built, so I figured nothing would look funny once it's all together. The fog lights have beaten out of their housings and
  7. Anyone have a source for a reasonably accurate 1/25 Ford 223 "Mileage Maker Six" 6-cylinder engine. Bonus points if it has a 3-speed manual tranny attached! I'll be needing one for an upcoming Edsel project, and can't think of a kit which might have one, off the top of my head. I figure someone here can point me in the right direction! Looks like the 215 and 262 are all the same basic engine/block etc, with just different bore and stroke, so an of that family of engines should get me what I need.
  8. Hi Guys I am a brazilian modeler and new in the car modeling universe. I´d like to build the 1979 Ford Bronco as seen in the 240 Robert TV show. I am using the 1/24 Monogram ´80 Ford Bronco 2 ´n 1 model kit but the tires and wheels are not accurate. Could you please tell me where to get the correct set? Many Thanks in advance
  9. This is a rebuild from a built up I got from ebay last year. First pictures of how I got it and the last is how it looks today. Here it is rebuilt - Not perfect but I feel a bit better than when I got it. Painted Testors' Revving Red with wet look clear. The bubble rear window and custom roof came from another 63 Galaxie I have. The engine block came in the model but I used new chrome from one of the many 63 Ford kits I have to freshen it up. I also used new custom parts from the various 63 Galaxie kits I have. The spotlights are from the AMT 62 Buick kit.
  10. Happy 2021 all,,glad to see 2020 in my rearview mirror. recently finished this AMT 1/16th kit,,added a few x-tras over the holidays. Used testors quikdry blue,,hand painted the rest. As always the large AMT kits go together well,,for the most part,,and look pretty good when done. Wishing you all the best for 2021. S
  11. Found these listed on Stevens International website today: AMT-1230 - 1/25 Miller Beer GMC Astro 95 Semi Tractor Cab AMT-1238 - 1/24 Ford LTL9000 Semi Tractor Cab
  12. I finished up the interior today and got half of the side chrome done. Dash, center console arm rest, and custom steering wheel painted Testors' Revving Red. Rear seat backs highlighted with Testors' 1204 red. Flooring done with Kens fuzzy fur maroon flocking. The chrome was done with a molotow chrome pen. Dash buttons gloss white and gauge faces done with semi-gloss black. The custom roof panels and rear glass came from another 63 Galaxie convertible I have. Body is also painted Testors' Revving Red with wet look clear. I'll be using the flip upside glass on
  13. Lindberg kit I picked up with a gift card. It's a pretty easy build, however, a few of the parts are mislabeled. Also, it says there are side mirrors, but the kit does not have any.

  14. Pictures of box, box contents, and instructions here Thank you and enjoy!
  15. I loved the kit and thought about buying another one to make a Mach 1. After all, I remembered the kit having the scoops in it. Well I started to cut out the holes to put the scoops in when I noticed; the scoops are from the GT-500 kit, not the Mach 1! So, now I have a red 302 and a yellow. Couldn't find my decal setting solution, so I was kinda angry I couldn't get the hood right.

  16. Started to head a bit off track in the AMT 1936 Ford thread, so starting this one on the Monogram kit. If anyone wants to add in information on other issues of the Monogram 1936 Ford, please feel free to do so. Going by the instruction sheet this issue of the kit was offered in 1974, a convertible only version of an older 6 in 1 kit that builds a custom 1936 Ford. It does not come with stock wheels or engine. Replacing those items would appear to allow a factory stock car to be built from the kit. The instructions say the kit engine is a 1948 Mercury with a 3 carburetor set up. It can
  17. Here is my Monogram “1992” Mustang GT Convertible. I built this kit as a color scheme tribute to my 1:1 Mustang, a 1993 2.3 LX. My original idea was to kit bash this GT with an SVO or ‘83 GLX to create an LX ‘vert but all three of these kits are expensive on eBay today and I just don’t have the skills or stomach yet to cut up two $40-$60+ kits ?. So I settled for my car, but as a GT! I used Swarovski Crystals (meant for ladies’ custom nails) from Hobby Lobby to simulate the headlight and turn signal bulbs. And I used the actual belt line stripe tape left over from my 1:1, cut down for the 1:24
  18. I just picked up one of the 1/16 Revell 34 Ford Street Rod kits (quite hard to find lately), and really want to build it in the billet rod fashion of the 80's/90's (the kit is a good start already). I'm going to build it mostly box stock, with the exception of different wheels, changing it to a manual, and changing the intake to a Camaro TPI intake (feels more indicative of that time period versus the intake offered in the kit). I'm sure there will be some other changes here and there as I go along. Speaking of wheels, here are the ones I've designed to fit the kit tires. They
  19. This is likely going to be an extended build but thought it would be fun to share the progress (or no progress as it may be) here with others. The goal is to build up a 1/25 scale of my actual 1969 Mustang Coupe that I've had since 1974. I finally have the car back on the road after way too long although it still needs details completed. I really should be working on the real one instead of this but I hope this will rebuild my motivation for the big car. I've messed with cutting up a kit to get the coupe roof line long ago but was never happy with what I could accomplish. Having run across t
  20. Last week I was looking at all the models I have in progress and decided I needed to get at least one more done this year. I picked the Tamiya TS-50 Mica blue painted Revell 70 Torino GT kit. Old kit started in April 2005 But when I started to work on it I discovered I was missing some vital components of the front suspension, like lower control arms, tie rod, and stabilizer bar. Then I realized I forgot to put the rear view mirrors on before I painted, and the paint job was not as good as it was 15 years ago. So, I started my new and improved version of this same kit
  21. Another one started, hoping to get it finished. This is from the 3 muscle car set that includes the 69 Barracuda and 69 4-4-2. This particular kit came with the BF Goodrich tires that are okay but looked to small for this build. So I found a set of F60-15 RWL tires from various AMT kits. The real car came equipped with F60x14 so I an not that far off from stock. I think I have a warped frame because the wheelbase does not align, I will try and fix that later. The wheels are detailed and done except for a little cleanup. Then I got to looking at the interior. I do n
  22. I got this kit years ago and have decided to give it a go. There was a lot of stuff to clean up on this one. This kit has a lot of problems, first off, the engine compartment is no where near accurate. The wheels only have lug nuts molded on one wheel, I think the interior rear seat is too shallow and the front seats are too small. I think the L60x15 tires are too big. The engine is a bit of a mess, the combined grille/bumper is wrong, plus we get chrome headlights and driving lights. The tail light section is all chromed as well. And finally the frame looks a bit generic. I can't tell you
  23. Been wanting one in the collection for awhile. The kit isn't bad. Still AMT puzzles me with their kits. You finally start to put side mirrors with the kit. Excellent. You also add decals that are more than lisence plates and race decals. Awesome! However, once placed on the model you can barely see the decal. Not cool. Also, you have headlight lenses for the custom kit, but not the stock version. WTF?!

  24. Here’s my AMT ‘77 Pinto! Painted Tamiya X-7 gloss red exterior with Folk Art Engine Red craft paint on the interior. This kit is pretty low in detail and the final fit and finish isn’t great, but it all comes together pretty good in the end. I’m definitely pleased with the final results!
