Scale I Build

  1. Hello Everyone! This is my first time on this forum (in fact on any forum) and I want to share with you my latest project. First, I want to introduce myself with some significative episodes of my builder experience. I’m not new in the hobby but I think it’s time for me to jump in the parade since fantastic and inspiring projects (and people) are present on this forum. Like some of the older model car builders I came back to the hobby after several years of absence. I spent my youth building plastic model cars but I left (as many of us) for more important thing like a full time job and less i
  2. Started with a a resin dody from southern motorsports hobby. Scratched built rollcage and used parts form other drag car kits
  3. Heres my Ford starliner super stock build, small slicks, seat belts, BMF, Nice kit by AMT..
  4. Have been very busy with life in general and less time at the bench but not out of the hubby. Here is what I am working on. It is a replica of the Nostalgia Drag Racing P/S Colt. The owner of the real car Bob Mayerle reach me to make him a model of his race car. So far this is where I am. Using spare parts and aftermarket pieces I think this can be done.
  5. Hello I'm Romell I've built a few models on this forum and I had to depart for a while for personal reasons. But I've decided I'd share what I've been working on. I'm posting pics of where the build stands as of today and I'll be posting build pics to get you caught up as well. Aside from a few 3d printed parts almost everything else was crafted from brass. If youd like to see some of my other builds I believe there's links in my signature. Anyway I hope you enjoy...
  6. Researching traditional 1932 Ford frame modifications I found this reference and thought it might be a good subject car to model. It could be done as it was back in 1954 or as it is today. The story is cool, the pics are cool. https://carpyscaferacers.com/long-lost-32-three-window-found/
  7. Heres a 67 SS Impala Outlaw I just Finished! Used slixx dragster decals, Melody Troxell I think..hope u like her..
  8. One of my favorite drag cars from my era. Has this kit for decades and finally had the "chutzpah" to start it and very rarely finish it. Dis body and chassis mods to get the right stance. hope you can see those in the next set of pictures.
  9. One day I get a massage on my facebook from a guy that saw one of my models of a Butch Leal pro stock that I posted on this forum. He wanted to buy it. I told him that I sold it many years ago. But I said I could build him another one. Well he said I want you to build it but just like my car. I was confuse but after a couple of days I realize that the photos were not from the original car but from a replica that he owns and drives in the Nostalgia Pro Stock series. I was stunt, so I started to find the kit and parts from by part box and this is what I have so far
  10. This is 1977 Firebird funny car that I am in the progress of building. I completed the chassis and am trying to plan how to paint the body. Chassis is Revell funny car chassis with minor adjustments to the rear end and the body is from Competition Resins. The final plan for the car is that I am going to give it to the owner of the car. Thanks for stopping by
  11. This is a simple pro street nova I did. Nothing too crazy, just a simple little model.
  12. One of my other builds I started with a big scratch built turbo. It's gonna be another small tire car with a tube chassis.
  13. Hello all, Im 35 years old from the desert in southern California. I have been building since the age of 8 . Much of my interest is geared toward what most call nostalgia drag racing. Straight axle gassers, front engine fuelers, altereds, with pro streets and pro mod type door cars thrown in too. Over 1/2 of my builds were inspired by my late uncle, many of his models were passed down to me before he lost his life to cancer. I hope that you all enjoy my builds, as few of them are "completed" with detail. I one day intend to give all of them the detail and attention they deserve. Thanks! Nate

  15. Here is my 65 Chevy II Nova, red riding hood gasser nova built from the rat pack nova,
  16. The original pictures are taken by my dad, but I wanted to share them here as well, because I thought they are really cool. So I took pictures of the paper pictures to get them in digital form. So in 1990 my dad was in the USA with a couple of his friends. They visited other places as well, like SEMA Show and Pomona Swap, but this race was really interesting especially because a Finnish Pro Stock Bike racer Veli "Jappe" Malin was racing with his Pro Stock Bike there. A couple of pictures from the pits first... Stock Eliminator Pontiac. Super Comp Camaro driven by Tony Foti.
  17. Any help and ref pics for the Nitro Bandit Olds funny car, I can only find a cpl online?
  18. So after a 20 year hiatus I decided to build a couple models seeing they're cheaper than the new turbo I want for my real car. It's the Revel 1990 LX drag car but I'm trying to put my own spin on it. This is my first time trying to scratch build a cage but I can't bring my self to just use the roll bar in the kit seeing in my mind a proper booster, fox body, should be well under 10 seconds in the quarter. I'm borrowing some pieces off a cheap pro street kit I picked up. Hopefully I don't get discouraged and throw it out Cage started, lots of finangling will be needed. I want to
  19. Hey fellas vacation time is over and its time to get started on another build. Actually I got started on this one a couple weeks ago I never stoped building once the daytona was done. I'll be fabricating a Reher-Morrison 5.3 nitrous motor from brass and aluminum. As a side note I will be using parts from my buddy Jim Littken of http://www.micronitro.net/ And from Charlie Of http://www.protechmodelparts.com/ and any other source that will make the job easyer. Anyway Sassy and I invite you to come along on another journey as we endevour to build a better model. sassy says Hello...... Ok
  20. any info on the Gun Fighter VI Pro stock car? any ones built here? Need a cpl ref pics, can only find one?
  21. Here is bob hamaltons Red Alert Chevelle, unlike the vintage Amt kit,I built this as correct as I could, the orig kit had single headlights like a 71,72, 73, the 70 had twin lights ea side, also, the orig kit has a blown engine with a hat. Lol, also kinda big deal, the orig kit has a 4 speed. And Bobs was automatic. H handle shifter, I made one. Also went to GM dealer and got the paint code for Cranberry red, it "75" by the way, the body shop mgt even mixed me some an gave me formula, pretty cool of him. So here ya go, my Red Alert, thanks for looking,
  22. Coming in just a couple weeks is a huge release of new parts. Parts shown in the attached image is just a portion of what is coming. Ladder bars are getting some love in this new release as well as new linkage mounts and some time-saving parts to help scratchbuilders. In addition to the shown images, i also have 3 new Optima Battery tray designs (in both 1:24 and 1:16) that will come in a 2-pack with resin batteries. The battery trays fold around the resin batteries for an added touch. The large majority of this plate will be the new Tab and Bracket series, with nearly 100 diffe
  23. Recently I saw a built 1932 Ford Roadster that was a center steer drag car. It had a nice tonneau cover over the drivers area except for where the driver would sit. When I asked my buddies at my local model club. They said it is a AMT kit and that the parts for this build are included in the kit. Sooo here is the question to all of you are much more knowledgable than I am. Which version(s) of the AMT 1932 Ford roadster kit has the parts needed to build the center steer drag race version? Hopefully it will be a verily recent kit. Don't want to break the bank. Thank you in advance.
