Scale I Build

  1. As if I didn’t have enough going on, I picked up a few more projects his week- I found a cheap 1957 Fairlane 500 built model with some home-made ‘mods’, jacked up back end, an upside down rear bumper and blacked-out glassware: Somewhere out of this ‘beauty’ I shall create a beast (or should that be vice-versa?) I think its going to be very smooth and low, as yet undecided on the colour, but I have a few ideas. I won some custom wheels and rubber on the ‘bay that will be added to this fine auto, perhaps some drag slicks squeezed under there.... As bought.....
  2. Dug this 2+2 out of my gluebomb pile soon after I finished the '70 Bonneville last year. The leftover cargo bed and roof seemed like a decent fit into the '65... Comments always welcome.
  3. I have reached the the end of this glue bomb disaster and my figurative rope on this one. Unless im a complete ID10T there is no way to build the tanker trailer in the short bed version straight out of the box.I put it at 20 scale feet by adding 1.22" in length. Allthough i do love the Dodge l-700 i wouldn't recommend this kit unless you are willing to spend all the extra time involved in fixing many flaws in this kit,most notable is the tractor front wheel spindles,and then there was the cab hinge,fixing the ride height of the tractor,i could go on but im sure most of you know a
  4. Last night I finished up my month long project of rebuilding an old AMT glue bomb 32 Ford I bought in a lot from my friend Pat. What I learned along the way is this: 1) kitbashing and restoring old kits is a lot of work, but fun as well. 2) I am not a contest builder. I build what I like and how I like and do it for myself and not for a blue ribbon. This is what I started with, a box stock, old AMT 5 Window 32 Ford. There was plenty of glue used on this kit. As I began to take it apart, the immense amount of glue used was becoming apparent. I initially scored and cut off the front fe
  5. OK guys, I figured if anyone had an answer, it would be here. Is there anything out there that will soften the glue on a glue bomb without hurting the plastic. I found a trailer suspension in a parts box that I acquired elsewhere and it was put together with a more than necessary amount of what looks like Testors goop glue. And then to add to that it was never painted. If there are some good tips out there......let me know please. I would greatly appreciate it.
