Scale I Build

Found 8 results

  1. Started in September 2008 and finally finished up February 2021. AMT 65 Bonneville in Evening orchid. I have some body warp but it is done! Basic black interior, BMF for the trim, Molotow pen for lettering.
  2. I built this 20 years, or so, back. It was built using a vac-formed drop tank that I found in a closeout pile at a local shop. I covered it with tooling aluminum. Tires and wheels are from the parts box. Rear tires were made by contact cementing two inserts from Revell's dragster/pro stock/FC kits together, then covering the seam with electrical tape. Wheel discs were punched from tooling aluminum sheet, as well. Radius rods, etc. are from the parts box. Rivets were made using the time-tested "scriber" method. I carved wood bucks to heat-form the scoops, and used an aircraft prop cone for the
  3. So this is Tamiya GT3 kit that I build mainly in box stock style. Modifications include aluminium spun hubcaps that were make by a friend of mine and restyled rear wing. Idea was to create a slat flats racer- styled street legal sports car with local ( Finnish ) EU- plates. Color is Tamiya Blue Violet and decals are from different kits.
  4. I've been to every Speedweek since '03 (even the rainouts!!). I love the show cars in attendance (Speed Demon, Stupidbaker, Blowfish, etc.) but I have a real soft spot for the beaters which are the inspiration for this, my latest project.
  5. Group, I'm sure a few of you attended Speedweek this year. It is a very inspiring place for any car modeler !!! Here is a slide show of my pix from Speedweek 2016. https://youtu.be/VpXzZ70xP9g
  6. Thought the car looked pretty cool, plus you never see many kits of the full size cars, so I picked it up.
  7. hey all , i started a new build now the 31 tudor only needs some small stuff to finish it this time i took apart my previous build roadster , i never like the outcome and every time i saw it i got annoyed .. also the past 6 months i just grew a bit again and got new techniques and a bigger drive to get details spot on and stuff more correct so ... i just tore it apart this was the build > after some sanding and thinking of idea's i got the idea to give the front a radical face .. like i googled and tryed to make something i never saw before. the idea , somebody could have done this 4
  8. Here's the AMT 1953 Studebaker Starliner kit that I modified. It received the most votes in the jalopyjournal.com H.A.M.B. online salt flats racer model contest ending on January 14, 2011. The mechanics of the car loosely follows the SanChez '53 Stude racer from the early '60s. The color is a coral orange color that I mixed from Accu-Flex model railroad water-based paint then used their clear gloss and a lot of polishing. The kit's headlight covers, custom front pan and chopped top were used. Most of the trim was removed/filled and a B pillar was added along with door panel scribing on th
