Scale I Build

Found 25 results

  1. I haven't been around much due to finishing this bad boy up to get it entered in the 2020 SEMA Battle of the Builders.... virtually... (stupid Covid) This has been around a 12 year project for my dad and I. I took ownership in 2017 from my dads friend, who had commissioned us to build the car. At that time the car was running and driving with the LS, but in primer to shake it out. Upon me buying the car, we stripped it down completely and put it on a rotisserie for a full paint and rebuild. Just finished up the last parts last Sunday, and had a professional photo/video shoot last Wedne
  2. Just finished up this MPC ‘75 Datsun truck! Built from the recently reissued Lil’ Hustler kit. Airbrushed in Tamiya XF-17 Sea Blue for the exterior, XF-55 Deck Tan for the interior. Box stock except for the sport door mirror from the AMT ‘66 Mustang. This kit went together pretty well overall with plenty of detail, but there was a fair amount of flash on most of the parts. Also, my chrome tree was warped so I couldn’t use many of the custom parts (not that I wanted to). Overall I’m happy with the results and I love the color combo!
  3. I recently was going through a boneyard of old cars and seen this car. All I know is that it said Datsun on the glove box and Nissan on the seat belt. Sorry for the bad picture but it was all I had taken of the car.
  4. Recently reissued 1/25th MPC kit. Fiddly in spots and the side bed pieces were so warped, that I had to glue the tailgate shut and rubber band them all together. Modifications as followed: L28ET SOHC I6 Turbo engine swap from an AMT Datsun 280ZX Turbo Exhaust tip from AMT 4th Gen F-body kits Bucket seats and steering wheel from Revell Datsun 240z. Steering Wheel gauge is kit's custom part and shifter is from unknown source Kit's leaf springs were warped and the left one was snapped on the tree. Kit's rear axle was used with custom 4 link like setup with rear springs.
  5. Well here i am again, starting another model. I happen to be a fan of strange/uncommon cars and engines, which makes this build super interesting for me! The plans are to lower the truck, add some cool fender flares, and some killer wheels. But you cant have a ridiculous truck without a ridiculous engine, i'm currently torn between four engine choices (1994 Corvette Ls, 1968-73 Corvette engine, adding a supercharger to the stock 4 banger) I'm now out of school working full time, so progress may be slow but hopefully I can keep progress onthis one.
  6. 2015 issue of Revell BRE Datsun 240z racer. On top of having some warped spots (that were partially fixed without breaking another hood or set of glass into two), most parts needed massaging, hollowing, and trimming to lay in place. Main offender was the dashboard being too tall and making the body look like a lift up funny car. That and the firewall needed to be trimmed to get the body to frame/interior fit in line. It's not perfect, but acceptable considering the warping didn't help a kinda messy 70s era Revell kit. Following modifications were made: Upgraded wheels/tires + brakes
  7. I wonder if the tooling still exists for the ol' Monogram 1/32 scale Datsun Pickup ? How about the others ? 1955 Chevy , 1979 Mustang , etc. , etc. ? These would be fantastic slump-busters !
  8. Alrighty then, Haven't posted here for a while. I'm primarily a rc scale ship guy, but have always loved model cars. Every now and then I get an idea based on everyday life, and here it is. Started with the MPC '75 Datsun pickup kit; made the flatbed from styrene sheet/strip. The porta-potty is a resin item from Scale Equipment. This a curbside, so no under the hood shots. I stripped the kit mag wheels, and sprayed them flat white, with a healthy coating of rust/dirt. The body is Model Master flat medium blue rattle can, with an undercoat of red oxide primer. Bumper/grill/mirrors w
  9. My dad bought this car brand new in 1977, I was nine years old. I remember going to the dealership with them. I remember questioning why he wouldn’t buy the 280Z. This car had a backseat, though it wasn’t much. As I grew, it became more difficult to climb back there. I was taller than anyone in my family. Eventually, he bought a 1990 Chevy Cavalier. I inherited the Datsun. I drove it for about two years. Rust had taken over the car. It started to become unsafe to drive. It was a fast little car, it had the Nissan truck motor in it. It also had a five speed manual. I learned to drive a
  10. This project replicates a 280ZX I owned in the early 1990s. It's taken me nearly that long to find all the pieces I needed and get to the point to give it a try. I finished this in late 2017, a little too long ago to qualify as a "last year" build. Body: Scratchbuilding non-turbo vents is beyond me at this point, as is cutting out and adapting the vents from the Tamiya glue bomb I scored for parts. I puttied over the Turbo vents and made decals from photos of the real thing. Filling in the T-tops was easier than I expected, though the areas near the windows could be a bit neater. Wh
  11. I'm a little late to the party, but I wanted to post my 2018 completions, minus a 1950 Ford Convertible I built as a gift. It was a busy year outside of the model-building world!
  12. I tried to speed assemble this, I've seen where guys knock out a model to fill a contest category that is empty, how do they do it? I also wanted to paint something with the zinc chromate primer, and Rustoleum primer instead of the cliche flat black. I'm also spoiled with Tamiya, Fujimi, and now Aoshima quality. Instead of using up my allotment for pictures, showing my Fakebook post:
  13. If this is a backdated stock version, this is quite a pleasant surprise: MPC-8721/25 1975 Datsun Pickup Truck *No idea if this is the correct box art for the reissue or not*
  14. The LIL-Hustler is back! Sweet repop. 8, yup, 8 new tires including gorgeous GT Radials. Parts looks clean and straight, detail is sharp. Decals are redone and very clean, multiple options for Datsun, even as just letters. Poseable steering too. 3n1 kit, good amount of left over parts for the box. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pN38f7eTgb4
  15. As you can see by the award plaque, this was built a while ago... testers Candy red over metallic red with decals from an IMSA monza kit. dats-am03 by Mike, on Flickr dats-am01 by Mike, on Flickr dats-am02 by Mike, on Flickr
  16. This was built over 20 years ago. Hope you like. Thanks for looking
  17. Hi, It´s been a long time since i´ve post some builds here on the forum, so it is really fun to share some pictures of this build and tell you what i have done. I wanted to build a very small car with so much drag parts i could put in to this little body,and this is how it started. I posted for a long time ago the first pictures of this build in the workbench column but i closed that tag,just because i realized that it would fit in better in the dragracing column. In the beginning of this build i started to cut out doors and all body panels that i wanted to view the details for the spectato
  18. Hey, so I'm looking for a scale-modelling forum and decided to settle in this one. So, I'm new to 1/24 scale-modelling. I was into Gunpla and saw a scale-modelling channel in Youtube and suddenly I have the urge to assemble a model cars but I know it won't be easy. Then, decided to grab the Aoshima Fairlady S30 or known as Datsun 240ZG as my first kit. The reasons I took this model is the simplicity of the build (but kinda dissapointed it went way that easy, no engine details ahahaha). I ruined the masking on the fender side... Guess that will be my homework for the next model. I used a local
  19. 2 Datsuns by Doyosha (formerly Yamada) models. The 1/23 scale blue '71 Bluebird 610 had only a flat chassis plate with battery door and a flat interior plate to make space for motorization. This was replaced with a chassis and suspension from Tamiya's '72 Skyline with many of the interior pieces molded/cast from a 1/20 scale Bluebird kit and modified. The 1/25 Sunny Coupe had the same chassis/interior setup; replaced with Revell Datsun 510 chassis and interior, with the dashboard molded/cast from the Hasegawa Sunny truck kit that just happened to show up. Thanks for looking!
  20. Revell's '72 Datsun 510 "Brock Buster" made stock. Cut down the fender flairs, filled the openings with sheet plastic then cut to stock size. New wheel opening lips front plastic strip. Tires are Modelhaus compact whitewalls, hubcaps from the parts box. Interior was stock already, just the steering wheel was a parts box item... The '79 Nissan Laurel was built mostly out of the box, it came as a lowrider, so the suspension had to be adjusted to stock height, but other then that...
  21. Hello, I'm new to the forums. This is my first post. I'm really into the post apocalypse builds and rat rods. Here is what I'm currently working on. It's a Datsun 510 converted into a truck. I have a lot left to do, but I really wanted to show it off. Thanks for checking it out. http:// http:// http://
  22. This is the latest issue of the old snap kit from monogram, which I think makes it about the 4th or 5th one... I had this in a Community Build off, but I think only the same 30 people even go in that section. Being a snap kit, I had some work to do correcting shortcuts and oversights, including replacing the "spare tire" lump with an actual tire, fixing the gaping hole in the firewall, and adding rear shocks. I also had some serious fitment issues with the window, interior tub, and chassis going together. So, I shaved down the window and tub to get the needed clearance. When I was a ki
