Scale I Build

  1. Here is a tribute build for my father in law who passed away a few years ago. Lime Green, was his favorite color. And when asked what his favorite muscle car was.... 71' Cuda was his reply. Theses are wheels that I thought looked like a modern version of the stock Mopar wheels. Although, there is a guy named Steve Zimmerman (Steve Z) who makes custom wheels and he has a stock version that are in scale to a 19' front 21" rear, I believe. They look smokin' hot, but in the end, I went with the Mr. Model ones above from Brazil. More to come.... TCB, Adam
  2. The first model car I ever tried to make when I began building as an adult was the Revell 1971 Cuda kit. I made it in Plum Crazy Purple, not really knowing what I was doing yet. It came out alright, but I always felt like I could have done better. I got this kit as a Christmas present and set out to make a good looking build. I think it looks great in Sublime.

  3. Hello All! Following the requests of some fellow members I will start a new threads of some of my completed models starting by the most recent. On this thread I will present my drag version of a ’70 Plymouth Hemi GTX 1/25 scale. I started making plastic models as a youngster in the mid seventies so I just build 1/25 scale and not 1/24 since they were not existing back then. I also want to be able to put my models side by side and don’t want to see any unrealistic proportions between them (I’m kind of purist…). I will go in outline because there are too many details to list and m
  4. I’m building a 1969 pro modeler dodge Daytona with two 426 HEMI’s put together as a 852ci V16 backed up by a 4speed and Dana 60. It will be biult as a land speed/dodge prototype mythical monster that could probably make close to 1000hp and 1000ft/lbs of torque (my hp-torque figures are only mythic and my not be correct)
  5. This is my first stock front suspension car that I’m attempting to build. I’ve had the kit for a while and decided to start on it
  6. I picked this kit up at an estate sale a while back and decided to put it together. I had plans of doing the car in a dark red exterior with a black interior, however when I put the first layer of primer down I liked the black and decided to go black on black. The plating had come off of one of the bumpers pretty bad, so while deciding what to do with that i was looking at the body partially assembled I thought with a bit of modifications I could make it look just like my 1:1 2018 Dodge Challenger. I went to work removing the things below the front bumper to make it a bit smoother. I left
  7. Hi, everybody just posting a build I've been working on for a while. It's revell's 1/25 hemi cuda, I know some people aren't going to like it and thats okay. But with this kit I wanted to sit low, with wide tire and most importantly keep the rear seat. I've never built one with 4 seats, plus I like flared fenders. This was inspired by a rendering by Andreas Wennevold and the Srt Demon. The engine is the hellcreate demon from Iceman Collections the suspension is revell viper acr. The body still needs to be touch up, and straightened a little but I should get to it within 2 weeks.
  8. Another thread, two nights in a row. Kind of hard to ignore. My build of a '71 Cuda 426. The paint is model master Sublime green. I started and painted this car in January 2018. My first model build with bare metal foil!!! No looking back now. The pictures do not do it justice. The shaker hood scoop needs to be trimmed down. I just painted it and notice it won't let the hood sit flat. What do you think??
  9. Hello All, Philippe, Scott, Luke, Wayne, Anton, Craig, Mark: Many thanks for your kind comments for this build, they are very appreciated and keeps me motivated for my current build!!! Following the good suggestion from an experienced member Dragonhawk1066 I deceided to move this thread in the "Under Glass" category. This make plenty of senses since the car is not WIP but finished. I took a last picture today to create a last post in the hope that it will be linked to the original thread listed in the "Drag Racing Models". I found the hint (I would say) by searching in the "How To Us
  10. Hey, everyone! here is another kit that i had started a few years ago....hopefully posting it will help me get it done! I have as many Muscle car kits as i do exotics, and the 1970 Hemi 'cuda is my favorite one of ALL time! I have a book that my wife, Tina got me, and it had a photo of the one i had to build. Since i already had a super detailed example of a 426 Hemi in my 67 GTX, iwas just gonna build it as a curbside. Since i've gifted away that GTX, i need another example of that engine.......so this will be it. Its gonna be a "modified" curbside, meaning; i'm not concerned about detail of
  11. I built all of these Challengers, previously posted, in one batch. It allowed me to mix and match parts for the options desired on each. They were all painted in the same week. Having so many at once allowed me to build efficiently and gave freshly glued or painted parts time to dry before being handled again. Their completion resulted in a rainbow of E-bodies.
  12. This model I am very proud of. I absolutely love the Sub-Lime green paint. It says MOPAR, all the way. The rims are from the kit but I used the 5-holers, intended for the rear, on the front. I widened the rear rims by sanding out the centers of a set of ConvoPros and adding them to the original front rims to make them deep dish. I actually had to narrow the rear tires slightly to get them to fit in the quarter panels. What I like the most is I nailed the stance perfectly. The grille was meticulously hand painted and this is the second model I have ever BMF’d. I tried using the black, Hemi
  13. This model was a difficult endeavor. The body was a resin copy that had a few of resin's typical issues, namely warping and thickness variances. It also was cast without an engine compartment or cowl. I used an AMT Yankee Challenge kit as a donor. With a lot of trimming, most all of the parts fit together. One of the challenges was having no grille or headlight frames. The 1970 parts are way too different to use so, I made them from scratch. The "floating" grille sections turned out so-so, but they do make it look like a 71 at least. The tail lights were drop in with minor trimming. (I think)
  14. Never built a Lindberg kit until this one. Screwed up the first paint job on it and hid it in a box for months if not years. Then it became a bit of an experimental subject for scratch built engine parts that didn't make it into the final build. Later, I found a 1972-74 Matchbox Challenger that I absolutely love so I went ahead and replicated it pretty accurately, with some creative freedoms that I took due to the lack of detail on a 1/64 scale Matchbox. Lettering is done by hand, stripes are decals from the '68 Charger kit by Revell. The build itself is pretty far from box stock, with a total
  15. I have not done much over the xmas period, but I did start to fiddle with the MPC Dukes of Hazzard Charger.... I do not plan to build it in Dukes trim, it is a hash up of a few different models; Petty’s ‘73 Nascar charger, amongst others. There is no rear seat, no inner front wings (fenders) apparently the engine is not correct, tires way too fat etc etc so I ‘m going to build my own dream race-prepped street charger mash up. so far I have the 426 cu in hemi painted and built, and I am working on the body at the moment, adding front wheel arch tops as the kit comes with nascar style round
  16. I picked up this diecats Hemi Dart a month ago or so. These are selling on EBay for $200+! When one showed up damaged for less than half that, I jumped on it! It has broken attachment points for the base on the underside (which doesn’t bother me) and the hood trim is missing. It’s been sitting on my deathbed since I got it. I figured I would fabricate the missing trim. Here is a little photo selection from the process.
  17. Decided to do a base hood version of the Cuda. Blue Angels Yellow paint. SAM_0355 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0360 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0367 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_0368 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  18. Its finally finished. My kit bashed, garage sale special, franken-chev is now officially under glass!! Thanks to all the help and support I got on this kit! Please excuse the saturated pictures, my phone not the best.
  19. The newbie here... OK typos aside, this thing is for sure... A 1/16 scale kit. This is my WIP 1957 Chevy Nomad garage sale special. It began its life as a incomplete model, but soon became something that I can tick my Chevy and Chrysler friends off. The simple reason on why I put a 1969 General Lee Hemi in it, is because... why not. The Dodge began its life as a complete model, though after some time it got somewhat destroyed. My hopes are to give the 57 "Ch-emi" the look of a rat rod, on top of the look of an old school street rod. Neat things done: Lowered car, put in a
  20. Well the magnum is done! I wanted to finish it before the March 19th model meet so I can say I succeeded lol. Pretty straight forward build. Wheels and push bar is from a lindberg charger police car. The hemi billboards are a combo of paint and decals. Custom sub box and audio stuff from my parts box. It went together pretty well, except the headlight lenses suck to install lol. But I'm super happy with the way it came out. Exactly how It looked in my head ?
  21. I've been working on Revell's awesome new kit for about a month now (I only get a day or two a week to build). All parts are spray painted, it's now time for some detail brush painting, decals, and assembly. I'm hoping to have it done by Thanksgiving. I thought posting here might hold me to that! This is my first build in 3 years, so I'm keeping it close to box stock and fun. I opted to build a Charger 500 by omitting the door scoops and not using any R/T decals. Paint it Testors Hemi Orange and Lacquer Clear. Kit will be box stock except for wheels and tires (plan is to use AMT '70 Chevelle d
  22. This one has a few little issues to be taken care of (radiator cap, black paint on ends of rear axles where they're exposed, mis-alignment of driver's side interior panel(doh!), but it's pretty much done. The build began in September 2011, and it's progressed in fits and starts since then. Thanks to Acecargarageguy for transmission advice (way back when), and Eric Macleod for trading me a box of old Monogram and MPC tires. They worked out very nicely. A few notes on the build and parts: -Monogram '30 coupe, chopped, wheel wells/bead detail added, Revell '32 5w louvered trunk modified to fi
  23. My '68 Charger that I just finished. Nice kit, although I had a heck of a time with the front bumper/valance fitting. Had to use super glue on the 3 pieces to get it to stay. Not perfect fit, but I moved on...LOL. I went with the Plymouth Plum Crazy paint and I really liked the way it came out. 3 light coats over the dark gray primer, then 3 light coats of Testor's One Coat clear. I went with the street version mostly, but stuffed the 426 Hemi in there and added some nice Mickey Thompson meats in the rear. Used the Mopar rims and some purple accents on the interior with Purple Embossing pow
  24. I bought this kit around 2002. I planned on working on it with my 2 year old daughter. Well, things didn't go as planned and I learned I need patience. So, In the closet it went. Fast forward to October 2016. I pulled it from the closet and gave it a revisit. The more I fiddled with it the more I saw what I wanted to add or subtract. I wanted to do some things I've never done before like cut open the doors and trunk. Since I've never done these things before, this kit taught me quite a bit. The things I can do, the things I can't do and what to do when things go wrong. Lets get started... I
