Scale I Build

  1. HI! I must admit that the 71/73 Mustang was my least favorite model: too long, too heavy, squarish... Well, why not try to build something different as a design challenge? In the 60's, Ford experimented with the rear engine MACH 2 concept, even with a rear-engined 70 Boss 429 Mustang... So, the AMT kit (not their best ever!) received a shave and a smoothing job, a recessed mesh grille, bust mostly, a custom chassis made-up of two (2) Johan 70 Eldorado front halves, joined at the center, moving the Ford BB (with Eldo's Latham supercharger)to the rear, using the Cad FWD axle. Two-seat cabin, and scratchbuilt interior, rear bulkhead, front "trunk", hinged hood and louvers, exhaust, etc. Rolling stock from Revell's 2014 Snap Corvette. Tamya fine metallic silver + Mr. Hobby topcoat. BMF & Molotow accents. Hours if fun with styrene! CT
  2. New for 1949! Introducing the Hurricane Typhoon! Two passenger luxury roadster! Boat tail styling inspired by the classics! Blade bumpers inspired by the Phantom Corsair! 800 cubic inch V-16 with dual overhead cams, and two centrifugal superchargers! 2000 horsepower! Six speed manual transmission with overdrive and two speed rear axle! 200 miles per hour! Nothing else like it on Planet Earth! Sorry, I couldn't resist- after all it was made from junk! Now for some pix. I decided that a couple of comparison shots with the Bugatti Royale and 1966 Pierce Arrow would give a good idea of just how large this 1/25th scale model is.
  3. Since everyone is getting excited about Chevrolet finally producing a mid-engine Corvette, dragged this Aerovette out to take a look. It was 1980 (39 years ago) when they ditched the wankel engine and put in a proper V8. I like the design, including the Jalousie windows, and you can see some styling cues were carried into the production cars. Revell produced this in 1998. It's typical Revell quality, some flash, simplified parts, but what is most annoying is the folding box! ? But it does have the highway for display. ? The usual amount of parts. Turbine wheels, not really defined enough at first glance. Now this is what ticks me off about how Revell packaged their kits, I bought it sealed, figuring it could be somewhat collectible. Read about "tire burn" in this forum, opened it up and sure enough. ? I don't want to spend a lot of time correcting or detailing this, just want to build Box Stock. Would replacing the window with sheet plastic disqualify for such a contest class? It would take a bunch of sanding and polishing to fix this, and cause distortion. Have the Bring Out Your Dead project to finish, before I dive into this. Also thinking of painting copper, since I live in Arizona. ?
