Scale I Build

  1. Built this for the Lee Iacocca memorial build, AMT kit (not snap-tite). Started July 11, 15.5 hours later on July 13 calling it done! Built Box Stock, no corrections, no added parts, not lowered. Used nail 'polish' for the paint, Bare Metal Foil used as light reflectors. For AMT, it was well done, the big problem was the turbo pipe from the back turbo to the left fender, that's why the hood does not close all the way. I bought this on sale for $8.10 when I heard the Union demanded it be pulled for Pace Car, hoped it would become a collector kit, you can buy one off eBay for $8-$9, so it d
  2. Kitbash of the classic Monogram Porsche 904 slot car kit issued 1965, with the Monogram Porsche March Indy race car from 1990. WIP build thread When the ladies at the copy shop gave me weird looks when I had the license plate reduced and printed, I tried to explain, Porsche + Indy, will bring it in to show them; it's the Phoenix International Raceway special plate. I have wanted to kitbash an Indy car, my original idea was with a '32 Ford or something. I was with friends at a model swap meet, saw "Porsche" on the box, they sold it for $5. I didn't know they ran at Indy, after reading
  3. Next project idea, simply posting to have some sort of incentive to go for it. Got the vintage Monogram Porsche 904 slot-car version at GSL, which is completely different than the version with an engine. Friend had the Monogram Porsche March Indy car at the Phoenix model swap meet, I noticed "Porsche" when we started packing up so got it for $5. I never knew Porsche tried Indy, looked up the history and saw it was a dismal attempt, so no wonder. The kit isn't worth anything, and nobody seems to like Indy models, so why not hack it up? The 904 had the nice Fuches wheels and P7 tires, proba
  4. Wanting information about a Carousel (brand I have never heard of) Lotus 38 Indy race car, 1/18 scale (weird scale for me). Met someone whose dad recently died, member of the model club let us know he had a collection. I have not seen it yet. From my search on eBay, it seems to be rare and expensive, holy cow! I told them it's the holy grail of the collection, I'm not taking advantage of them to steal it. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Rare-Race-Car-1960s-Lotus-Ford-Indy-500-Jim-Clark-F-1-18-Midget-Racer-Carousel/302706393139?hash=item467ab50033:g:NikAAOSwUEVYC71O
  5. The 1940 Miller mid-engine Indy car - variously known as the Gulf Miller or the Preston Tucker Special - is now on display at the Indy Museum with it's engine bonnet open . The car was a non-runner for many years and the subject of a long term Museum restoration. As you can see, I began to build me one - in 24th scale of course - [ we'll leave the 24th/25th scale debate for another time] these parts have sat quietly in this storage bin for several years - I was not satisfied with my suspension parts - and there were no contemporary photos of the engine bay ...

  6. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2013-06-29-Riverside/i-29Zd7Gv When I saw Ranchero Steve's photos of Gurney's cars from the Peterson, thought I'd post these for more info for reference. Not all the best shots since was a bit darker in there then I thought. Was going to get back out and rephoto some, then the money man behind the museum died and it eventually folded. Support your local museums!!! Also I posted photos from the Unser Museum a couple of months ago, think there are a couple of Eagles there also.
  7. https://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2015-05-07-Unser-Racing-Museum/i-QVkcWGDhttps://whulsey.smugmug.com/Cars/2015-05-07-Unser-Racing-Museum/i-QVkcWGD Well I guess Pikes Peak would be an alternative since the Unser family about owned it for 30 or 40 years. Definitely worth a stop and I think I missed another building that had vintage cars and trucks in it. So need to get back over there again.
  8. Has anyone built Revell's Team Rahal's Shell Reynard CART car? I was thinking about getting one. Is it a decent kit? How about the AMT Indy Car kits? Are they any good? Thanks.
