Scale I Build

  1. My gosh,,Im stuck on these late 60's Ford cars recently,,here I took the AMT Shelby GT500 kit and did a drag version,,additions not included in kit : Headrests,,seatbelts,,rollbar,,drag slicks,, cragar mags,,,opened up rear wheel wells,,drag headers instead of stock exhaust,,lower radiator hose,,decals from leftovers from my stash. Rattle can sprayed W/ Testors Mystic emerald green. Hand painted 2 tone interior w/custom mixed paints. Hand painted window trim{s} w/custom mixed paints. Dremmel cut+ removed engine bay wheel wells. {so drag headers would clear} I did have to dremmel t
  2. To me the 1941 Willys is the best looking gasser. I have seen a ton of pics online and just love the way they look. I plan on getting one down the road to build and I'm looking at the Reveal Big John Mazmanian 1941 Willys. Show me what you have, what brand, and what year.
  3. So, the theme (in my head, at least) for this build was something a high school gear head would have tooled around in in the mid-70s to early 80s. I have the inline 6 dogeared for the Nova wagon sometime in the future. I pulled the 421 and wheels from a ‘65 GTO kit that was all but destroyed during shipping. Just a fun little change of pace build. Paint is Dupli-color Stone White and Tamiya TS-35 Park Green with Wet Look clear. Comments, questions, tips, pointers and critique is always welcome. Thanks for looking. Namaste.
  4. Not mine, pics from collected eBay listings, but would be great to hear this survives and can/will be reissued.
  5. Hi All, I'm looking for the factory stock front grille from AMT's 1/25 1975 Matador coupe, kit #T452. This is the street version, not the Bobby Allison stock car. I recently picked one up as a glue-bomb that I'd like to rebuild. It's mostly complete but missing a few critical pieces including the grille. If anyone has a grille they'd be willing to part with let me know. I've attached a shot of the original kit box for reference. Thanks, Andrew
  6. Okay, after seeing all the great Munsters builds, and considering the time of the year, i decided; whats one more build on the bench? -20 is a nice even number! I dont really know what level of details these will be, but i'm pretty sure they will evolve rather quickly....lets see what i do to them!
  7. Is the 1/25 AMT '32 Ford Tudor Sedan kit lost forever? Granted, with the newer and better 1/25 Revell '32 Ford Tudor Sedan more easily available having the older AMT version back is hardly necessary, but it does offer some unique things, and even for the sake of nostalgia, I think it still holds some appeal. If anyone here has one of these, please take some pics and share with teh class. Pics from eBay listings, just to show the contents: AMT's generic Ford hot rod decal sheet:
  8. 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!
  9. Out in February 2021, six new 1000 piece puzzles based on recent AMT box art, priced at $14.00 each:
  10. Well im building the 82, so may as well build this one along side it. This is another kit I got from ole mate Ray. He was lucky to find and get it from a private estate sale in Adelaide. Then I got lucky when he offered it for sale to me when he walked away from the hobby. They certainly dont make kits like this anymore. Would be fun and different to do a custom version as some of those parts have cool features. But il stick with a some what stock look. Such a trip to experience a kit of this era. Got a rough idea of the direction im goi
  11. Here’s my build of the recently released AMT ‘78 VW GTI. Since this kit is molded in three colors (and since it’s too cold out to safely spray paint) I decided to see how far I could take it with just some Future and hand detail paint. It came out ok, definitely not an award winner 😂. The yellow plastic is thin and slightly translucent so the color isn’t consistent. If I did it again I’d try some yellow craft paint inside the body shell first. Part fit and detail isn’t great but considering the age of the mold it’s acceptable. It’s WAY better than AMT’s ‘77 Pinto. I don’t think anyone in their
  12. Pictures of box, box contents, and instructions here Thank you and enjoy!
  13. Overall a fairly decent kit although it did pit up a fight at times. Exterior is ScaleFinishes BMW Laguna Green over a black base and Wet Look clear. Interior is the same green and Rustoleum Smokey Beige over white primer. The wheels are Pegasus. I added a wired distributor, looms and battery cables. As always, questions, comments, critiques and pointers are welcome. Thank you for looking.
  14. Got some new/different masking tape the other day and wanted to try it out , so I got out a KW cab and had at it. I kinda like how it’s turning out. Don’t know how much will get done from here on in seeing as how the weather has finally come around, but we will see. The plans are to use a grill and tires from double take replicas, and a couple of moebius steer tires.
  15. I never noticed it mentioned on the instruction sheets of certain AMT kits, but there it is, on at least five early AMT kits: Was it realistically possible to assemble each of these kits without any glue, and not have some of the parts fall off? AMT might have been using the term "assemble" lightly, similar to what some of us would do in a test fitting stage, and the 1932 Ford Roadster does appear to have rather large locating pin holes in the of the cowl for the windshield frame: Maybe the tolerances were just that tight from the get-go?
  16. does anyone know when the original amt modified stockers series,,,64 ford, 66 skylark, 65 olds 88, etc, hit the stores back in the day. I built 3 of the original issues in late 1977, but found some of them hard to find in most stores around here back then. also, does anybody remember if all 9 came out at once, or were they issued 2 or 3 at a time. I am building the 64 ford re issue at present and have always had a soft spot for them,,,just thought I would ask. thanks, a.c.
  17. I pulled this one out of the stash looking to build something fun and not so serious. A whole lot more fabrication and re-engineering was required than I had imagined. Just a gnarly, ill-fitting, warped, blobulous mess of a kit. I lowered the overall ride. I moved the inner fenders inward to provide some clearance for the front tires. I smoothed out the bumpers by removing the guards then color matched them to the body. The paint is a Nissan color from ScaleFinishes, KAC Titanium with Wet Look clear. The rims are Pegasus and tires are Goodyear bigs and little from the parts box. Overall, I’m h
  18. Those of you that may have a few years on you might remember The Munsters. Grandpa had to build a race car and win a drag race to get back the Munster Koach that Herman lost. I remember watching it as a kid. I built the DRAG-U-LA for FB group Halloween theme build. It was a fun model to build. I added a few aftermarket pieces to enhance its appearance. I hope it puts a smile on your face!
  19. Well this one is all done! Amt 94 sonoma. Converted it to a 97. Changed the steering wheel, intake manifold, intake and some underhood stuff. Slammed on pegasus wheels with painted centers and painted a factory color for 97-00. I love the way this one turned out. I just need to add rear shocks lol.
  20. I do not want to say this was an easy build. It had it's moments when stuff did not want to fit correct. I used the flame decals from an old t-bucket kit I had laying around. I also created a custom exhaust.
  21. Some of you regulars know that I used to build box art models for AMT back during the Ertl days. I built display models ranging from mostly cars to even Star Wars from 1990 to 1995. The last three cars I did were for the Chevrolet Classics set shown below. Once they were built, as always I would hand them over to the Ertl Company and I might occasionally see them on the box, in the catalogs, or in the Blueprinter. When Ertl was finished with them, they would raffle or auction them off at model car events, then donate the proceeds to the Model Car Museum in Salt Lake City, Utah.
  22. Started working on an AMT 53 Ford Pickup about a week ago, have seen a lot of nice builds and always wanted to get one going. Doing all the basics right now, soaked the body and main parts in some dawn and water, scrubbed the stuff down, scribed out the doors, vent and windshield. Removed the door handles, locks and filling in the gas filling area. Also smoothed out the running boards, have them glazed with some Evercoat at the moment. Looking at the chassis and stance at the moment, started assembling the engine. My goal is build a nice 60's style cruiser out of this. I've also been pos
  23. Looks like i found another old project that needs to get done. It will be a full detail build with parts from a Revell 66 GTO.
  24. This is my first build in 35+ years,since I was a kid. AMT Ecto 1A Ghostbusters It´s build out of the box...haven´t painted the body otherwise everything else is painted mainly to instrictions.Have also seen a couple of videos on Youtube of other builds of the car. 95% of all is painted with brush using Vallejo Air paint. Only chassis and main interieur was airbrushed. No clear coat either. I know that Slimey and Marshmellow Man is featured in "Ghostbusters 1" movie and Ecto 1A is from "Ghostbusters 2" The figures was found on wish.com
