Scale I Build

  1. In an effort to keep thinning the stash and trying to produce one model a month, I started this relatively simple kit. The fit and finish of parts are great, really easy to assemble. As of this morning I only had parts in primer and some with a first coat of paint. I will just be doing a box stock build with light weathering. Here are all the parts assembled so far. Here is the chassis which is almost complete. I need to add the exhaust and weather the shock mounts and front steering assembly as well as some other minor details. Here it is all test fitted. Stance checks out okay. I'm excited to see it finished. Will be applying some weathering techniques to the body within the coming days. It already has some "battle scars" showing through the paint. I wanted some rough spots on the paint, came out good.
  2. I just recently start to built my other car or truck in a hommage to MAD Max
  3. Not sure where this is going From a friend I got a incomplete Cuda, and truck chassis wit some small parts and bunch trailer wheels. Im thinking to build a model that fits the Mad Max or the Apocalypse scene. By the way the roof gun comes from a broken toy from my kid. I have also a Revell armor car that I might use to combine with the Cuda. Suggestions and ideas are welcome
  4. Most of you following the P.A. Community build, or interested in the genre have probably heard about these kits by now. Originally issued around 1984 by Fujimi, apparently to cash in on the Road Warrior phenomenon, which spawned many B grade movie imitators. Fujimi released 4 kits in the Mad Police series, Destroyer, a Nissan Cedric. Interceptor, a 79-82 Pontiac Trans Am. Venus, a MkII Celica-Supra (Celica XX). And Farcon (engrish misspelling of Falcon), a Nissan Leopard. All shared some common elements, and had armor and some sort of weaponry. This is my unboxing of The Destroyer, the most common of the 4 kits. There is a bit of flash, especially for a Japanese kit. The black plastic is kinda brittle. The mold for the Cedric body is damaged, as both the one I bought in 85, and this one 3 months ago that shipped from Hong Kong have a wavy trunk lid and trim. On a pristine car, this would be a troublesome fix, but on this type of car it can pass as physical damage to the actual car. The body in this kit comes in either white, or green. My old kit came with a white body, and this one is cast in green. These kits are curbside, and come with the motors and electrical connections to power the motor. The directions show you how to run lights, but are not included. The box art. All of the paintings are well detailed and look quite nice. The body and armored chassis. Dash and machine gun. "Clear" parts. Painting the police lights is a pain with this dark glass.. Interior parts,and battery box & switches. Figures and headlight light armor. The flat louvers are used in the Interceptor and Farcon kits. Fender armor, also used on the Farcon Tires, motor and electrical connections. The tires are unique, in that one side says Goodyear, and the other, Dunlop. Not sure that would fly with todays licensing agreements.
  5. I am looking to build an Interceptor model kit, but don't want to pay the big $$ to buy the kit. So, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what model(s) that I could use to kit bash and fabricate the model? I was comparing an ealry 70's Tonrino to the 73 Falcon bosy, but the style lines along the side are different.
  6. I've been getting back into the hobby after 20 years. This is the first project: Pulled this one out of storage: And for a future project I may try something like this soon: or I think I like the Charger best:
