Scale I Build

  1. So this morning I broke open a can of Tamiya TS-36 fluorescent red. I laid a light coat down over gray primer. It looked purple. (As seen here on the paint stand) I had warmed up the can, so it went on real light. I’ll let that flash and then started putting on slightly heavier coats. Something did not seem right. The more paint I put on, the more it went from purple to blood red. I was hoping for Richard Petty’s vermilion red. Not quite. But it came out too nice to take the paint off and start over. As luck would have it I have the Hawaiian punch d
  2. I’ve been going through a stage lately of doing cartoonish themed racecars. The hood was actually quite easy. I always use Walthers solvaset for my decals and it works great.
  3. I'm, relatively, new to die casts... I, only just about a year ago, discovered Nascar trucks and trailers in 1/24 scale.... I had no idea this market existed... Anyway, I converted a Nascar hauler into this 3 car hauler... It just made perfect sense to me... This is just one of about 6 I've converted, this way... I display many of my die cast cars on the backs of these things... Saves space... ?
  4. I'm thinking of doing this one as the '49 Ford that Louise Smith drove. Louise Smith (July 31, 1916 in Barnesville, Georgia – April 15, 2006) was tied for the second woman to race in NASCAR at the top level. She was known as "the first lady of racing."[1] She went as a spectator to her first NASCAR race at the Daytona Beach Road Course in 1949. She could not stand watching the races, so she entered her family's shiny new Ford coupe in the race and rolled it. Her hometown Greenville, South Carolina paper featured photos of the wreck, and the town knew about it before she got home.[2]
  5. I posted this project a while back when I first started it. It's been on the shelf while I did some remodeling and set up a new model room. I just got back to work on it and a few other kits I'd started. A little more work to do, and the paint didn't turn out as smooth as I'd like but here's where I left off last night:
  6. Although I kept my models in display cases, some didn't fair that well over the decades. This one was showing some age. I used rubber bands through the holes in the base of the Johan cases to secure the models in place. Over the years, this caused the wheels to splay outwards on some. On the race cars, I guess I could claim it was extreme camber for track...
  7. They're no longer in my collection, but I built quite a few NASCAR kits over the years and still have photos of some. This is the Buddy Baker Uno Buick Regal.
  8. I was a fan of Daryl Waltrip and Terry LaBonte. I still enjoy Daryl's commentary on the races. I built these kits back in the 90s. They were displayed in my man cave for many years, but sold them with the rest of my collection in 2017.
  9. Hi everyone, Here's a build I finished up a couple months ago but neglected to post photos of. It's Donnie Allison's 1969 Mercury Cyclone II. Or sort of. He never drove the flat-nosed Cyclone II, just the "W" nose. But I only realized this halfway through the build and decided to just finish it as-is. It's the Polar Lights re-release from a couple years ago and goodness was it a lot of trouble! The chassis fit was poor, engine details were soft, and of course it wasn't even the right car. Not wanting to waste too much on a kit that isn't up to par, I built this out-of-box. One nice
  10. I started this Mobius kit a couple months ago, then got started remodeling my house. I'll have a much better model room when I'm done but, meanwhile, I've put several builds on hold.
  11. I may have gotten in over my head, trying to create my own classic NASCAR models that I've never seen kits for. This one is going to be one of Buck Baker's 1958 NASCAR Impalas. He also had a convertible. I saw a photo somewhere with this white/burgundy color combo. I'm also experimenting with one body, grinding off the side trim, then using filler. I've seen some old NASCAR photos where some had the trim intact, others had it removed. Once I get my model room set back up, I'll do some custom, water slide decals to match the photos I've found online.
  12. Hi everyone, My first finished build of the year. Texas Terry was my favorite driver growing up and I've always loved the look of the Hagan cars and the pre-aerocoupe Monte Carlo SS body. This build is stock, with the exception of Chimneyville Decals. Overall, the kit was a nice, fun build. I used Tamiya rattle can for the body and chassis. I went for an early season red chassis because I like the bright interior. For the rest of the car, I used Tamiya and Vallejo acrylics. My biggest issue was with the aftermarket decals, which peeled on the edges when applying clear. But it's going on t
  13. I have not done much over the xmas period, but I did start to fiddle with the MPC Dukes of Hazzard Charger.... I do not plan to build it in Dukes trim, it is a hash up of a few different models; Petty’s ‘73 Nascar charger, amongst others. There is no rear seat, no inner front wings (fenders) apparently the engine is not correct, tires way too fat etc etc so I ‘m going to build my own dream race-prepped street charger mash up. so far I have the 426 cu in hemi painted and built, and I am working on the body at the moment, adding front wheel arch tops as the kit comes with nascar style round
  14. I posted previously about Kodiak Supply decal paper here. It's pretty amazing stuff. I'm a career graphic designer who specializes in motorsports design. Specifically dirt oval. That being said, Kyle Larson is my guy. With this being one of my first cars of making my own decals, I wanted it to be fairly simple so I can working out the kinks of the process. You'll be seeing quite a few more of his more specialized cars. I want to tackle the AXE Peace car next. I'll keep you posted on how the build progresses.
  15. As I've said in a few other posts, after 18 years, I've finally got back into building racing models. This is my fourth kit back and I really do need to post my other cars to show and track my progress. I'm a recovering addict and this community immediately welcomed me in . The amount of kindness and knowledge in this forum is amazing and invaluable. For example, I posted a "wanted" ad and was immediately contacted by some great folks who helped me out with no questions asked. Without naming them, they were generous and went out of their way to help me. It means the earth to me and can't wait

  17. I really enjoyed building this race car. The kit goes together flawlessly (as do all Moebius kits I've built). Built OOB, body mods included cutting off the headlight trim rings to use the kit-supplied block-off plates, carefully filed and sanded off the side trim without losing the body lines, and I drilled small holes to depict the side trim attachment points. Decals went on without a hitch and responded well to setting solution. Overall one of my favorite Cup cars of one of NASCAR's past champions. Comments welcome, thanks for looking!
  18. Ok so here is a project that I am very excited about! Building Junior Johnson's 1963 Holly Farms Impala. I took a 63' impala kit and am pretty much building the racecar from the ground up. I don't have too many pictures yet of the progress but here are a few... This was my first ever attempt to cut a door off anything. Some progress on the scratch built roll cage
  19. Revell is back with the full paint and assemble NASCAR kits, first off the line is this Ford Fusion in Kevin Harvick #4 Jimmy John's livery. Looks great, no name tires but that is easily solved and most of us will want to letter those tires for sure. Glass is super thin and prepainted, roll bars are nice and thin, no short shorts or mold issues. Even includes a figure and full decals of course. Aftermarket guys will make a mint selling every race stable colors imaginable. I'm really excited about the Napa Chevy SS kit, I just like the Napa colors. https://youtu.be/GSILqvW28mQ
  20. So, there are these guys on youtube called roadkill, they do crazy things with old wrecks of cars, they did a car called the nascarlo, they took some old late model paved oval track race car and put a '70 chevy monte carlo body on it, they had to move the roof back for it to fit, and it looked prety cool and weird: i know the monte carlo body that im going to get, but i dont know if there is a set smilar to the original car they used, something that i could use the chassis from, if not, it will be a bit difficult trying to make the chassis when i have hardly no experience. does anyone know o
  21. I was digging through some boxed up stuff the other day and found some of my early builds from when I got back into the hobby. These are probably from the mid-late 90's. Some are pretty dirty and the decals have yellowed with age, but I like 'em anyway. Comments welcome. Michael Waltrip's car (that he destroyed at Bristol) Bobby Labonte Kenny Wallace Chuck Bown Ricky Craven (the original Rainbow Warrior) Jeff Gordon (driving for Jack Roush) Robert Pressley Tommy Houston Harry Gant
  22. Following O.C's lead, here are some of my old builds, Buicks this time. Some dust and yellowed, just like me Darrell Waltrip, Junior's ride Ricky Rudd Bobby Allison, my all-time favorite driver and maybe my favorite car as well. I have all the parts and pieces to do this one again a little better! Hut Stricklin, took over the #12 after Bobby's career ending crash (I really liked this paint scheme) Bobby again, the car that crashed at 'Dega and started the whole restrictor plate era Thanks for looking
  23. I may have posted this before but I can't seem to find the topic. My wife's father owned his own local Texaco shop here in Richmond and raced this Ford all along the eastern seaboard. The only reference points I have to build this car are historical pictures from the net (whatever I can find, anyway...), some sketchy memories from his kids who were really young (ages 2~5), and this only pic of his actual car: From my brother-in-law's recollection, the fenders and wheels were black, the body panels are burgundy, and the roof line is white all the way back to the rear bumper (CORRECTION
