Scale I Build

  1. I’ve been trying to teach myself to draw in 3-D the last two weeks. I’m using Fusion360 And I’ve created several different projects from YouTube videos. My first solo project was the painted hubcap pictured below. It’s for the 1970 Monte Carlo. My second drawing is the plain Jane hub cap or a base model for the 1970-72 Monte Carlo. After that, a friend of mine asked me to draw an air cleaner for Mr. Norms Dodge Tri-Power. And presently I’m working on a Hone O Drive for my Motion cars.
  2. Recently, Salvinos J R Tooled up an LS nose for the NASCAR Monte Carlo kits. Since Stock Cars in the 80s hadn’t gotten completely away from their production counterparts yet, I thought I would test fit this nose on the most recent release of the Monte Carlo SS. Mounting it directly to the front fenders resulted in a nose pointing up. So I pulled the top away from the hood until the lower body line leveled out. I measured the gap at the top and transferred that measurement to the bottom. I placed a piece of tape from the measurement to the top corner and cut out a pie slice
  3. I'm going to build this as a hopper, because while I was watching YouTube for lowrider research, I became amazed at the pounding these cars get, especially the hoppers. I really like it when the car 'statues' and balances on its rear bumper. I'll paint this with nail polish and rattle cans and also use a few decals.
  4. I can't seem to stop making lowriders at the moment. I'm obsessed or something. anyway, here's my go at a 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. I reworked the rear suspension to drop it as far as the chassis would allow and converted it to a 4-link setup. Paint is all nail polish, with rattle can clear. It's base colour is orange, in case your screen makes it look red. The interior is Tamiya orange with some gold flake highlights. Any comments or questions are welcome. thanks for looking
  5. New project on the bench. I have a body with the front and rear bumpers molded in for this one. I’ll take pictures when I dig it out. I started it over 15 years ago. Maybe Snake will let me throw it in the next “Bring Out Your Dead” assuming there’s one starting in January. It is sitting a little high in the rear here. I notched the top of the tub’s and move them up here. I think I will drop the front a little too. Here is the inspiration!
  6. Below are some slot car bodies I made for a friend. He had a pretty good stash so we worked out a deal where I got a kit of MY choosing and he would select a kit for the body. I would detail out the body for him and get to keep all the rest of the kit for parts. The silver Super Bee turned out really nice. Note: the wheels shown were only for mock up pics.
  7. This Monte Carlo was built as a vague recreation of the copper Monte Carlo my dad had when I was a teenager. (Oh the stories that back seat could tell, LOL!) Anyway, this was an open, pre-painted kit I got on ebay. I didn’t like the purple, so I repainted it metallic copper. I usually build my models with the factory “High Performance” option which usually includes a special hood. Unfortunately, Monte Carlos were never offered from the factory with any hood other than flat. However, I learned that PSF Hobbies offers a custom 70 Chevelle Cowl Induction hood for this kit, so I got it. Durin
  8. I’ve always admired the workmanship that goes into low riders. Especially the multi layered paint jobs. There’s a guy that shows his models at our local LIARS show and the NNL East. His work is fantastic and always inspires me. After seeing his work a couple weeks ago I’ve decided to dip my toe into the water and give it a try. I’ll be converting the 70 Monte Carlo into a 1971. I don’t know if I’m going to do a multi color paint job or maybe a two-tone. But I worked tonight on the ride height. I wanted it Looooooooow!
  9. Just finished this Monte. I swapped out the rear axle for something with better detail, scratch built coils and hydraulic struts and made a 4-link suspension setup. Rides on Pegasus wheels and painted with automotive paint and nail polish. Flocked carpet with matching headlining.
  10. Besides being a Corvette enthusiast, I've also been partial to Monte Carlos. I've owned a '73, a '74 454, a 94 Z34, and a 2002 SS. This is the only Monte Carlo model I remember building many years ago. Not my best paint job but looked pretty good from a few feet away.
  11. Ever since I mastered and cast this L88 hood for the 1970-72 Monte Carlo, I’ve been itching to build a “what if” Baldwin Motion Monte Carlo. I know Baldwin Motion never offered to modify the Monte Carlo when they were due. I’m hoping this will follow in the spirit of a Motion type build. The tires are from the Baldwin Motion 1971 Camaro. I cast these slotted wheels for my Baldwin Motion Phase III Corvettes. I felt that the Buick GSX deck lid spoiler fit the Monte Carlo pretty well! I’m thinking of using the GSX chin spoiler too. I look at it this way, if Baldwi
  12. The 1968 Baldwin Motion hood is in a mold box and awaiting silicon molding. But that won’t happen until Wednesday night. In the meantime, since I will be pouring silicone, I figured I would pop out another custom hood for casting. As you may have guessed from the title, it’s a hood for a First Generation Monte Carlo. Baldwin Motion never offered the Monte Carlo as a package in their Phase III line up, but I have always wanted to build a “what if“. The L88 hood was and natural choice for me since that’s what they put on the 1970 Chevelle. Plus the Monte Carlo has such long hood, the could be
  13. So I'm having another interesting problem with Scale Finishes paint. I am not sure it is specific to that brand. Here is the story. First, spoons. I very often test paint on plastic spoons. I bought a box of 1000 styrene spoons and have bene using them for years. Lately, the spoons show a glossy/not glossy pattern on them - see the photo below. This is with MANY different brands of paint, so I assume it is something to do with contamination in the plastic of the spoon. I tested the Dark Camel color from Scale Finishes on a spoon, and it exhibited the problem. After I applied the paint
  14. Finished these two up in the last week. Two giant pains in the rear in regards to decals, the Monte Carlo's fell apart on the touch so had to decal bond the hell out of it and the Duster decals turned milky yellow. The color on the Duster is apparently a regular RAL standard color(yellow green), thank God it came out as nice and close to the hi-impact colors.
  15. So, there are these guys on youtube called roadkill, they do crazy things with old wrecks of cars, they did a car called the nascarlo, they took some old late model paved oval track race car and put a '70 chevy monte carlo body on it, they had to move the roof back for it to fit, and it looked prety cool and weird: i know the monte carlo body that im going to get, but i dont know if there is a set smilar to the original car they used, something that i could use the chassis from, if not, it will be a bit difficult trying to make the chassis when i have hardly no experience. does anyone know o
  16. This is my a 1977 Revell Snap Tite, hope yall like it! thanks for viewing!
  17. The Idea behind this build was to create an 80's street machine. You know, that boastful, arrogant, tire squealing jerk who would cruise up and down your local main strip listening to AC/DC and twisted sister honking and yelling at all the young girls on the sidewalk. Yea that car! A little background about the build. It started as an aerocoupe and after mucking up the paint on that body I decided to switch the body to flatback monte. It has fought me the whole way. First black paint job was sub-par so Into the brake fluid it went. Second attempt was black again with Tamiya black TS-14. Afte
