Scale I Build

  1. Hey guys, it’s been along time since i just built a model, i was into it heavy when i was younger, but haven’t built anything in years so I’m jumping back in, trying to keep the build simple but I’ve changed up a few things the kit came with a straight axle setup it was a weird traverse spring setup and i wanted to run a parallel spring set up, so i made some mount/shackles/springs and a tube axle Slapped it all in the chassis and painted it i started to assemble the motor and wiring it up, only real mods i made on the motor are the headers, they are the kit headers but with the square collectors cut off and the end filed into single pipes to look like short zoom or style headers I also included a picture on how the cars gonna sit, I radiused the wheel wells, the kit had marks on the inside that they suggest to cut to, which i did but in my opinion opens the wheel well up to much , but i think it will turn out ok
  2. Rounding out my 1957 Chevrolet limited production vehicle collection is this Road Legends Nomad in 1/24. I do not have a Mint versions of the Nomad to compare but the price on this was $27.75 shipped. Shape seemed pretty good compared to the M2 and Crown Premiums and only an 1/8th difference in length and wheelbase. The big surprise for me was the metal flake red paint. Though the flake is very fine it is still surprising for a production car in 1957. The model has poseable front wheels but no license plate and the interior is not up to Mint type quality. There is an acceptable engine and a copper colored radiator core. All told I think it is a nice addition to my 1957 Chevrolet collection and at an affordable price.
  3. Another 2 year old build. Used Krylon Glitter blast as a kind of challenge to 2 tone & BMF using such a coarse finish.. Surf board is still being finished @ the surf shop.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 Hemi, roll cage, side exhaust, fuel lines, break lines, ignition wires, and cut out firewall. Neat things to be done: Transmission, electrical wires, finish model.
  6. Will the AMT '55 Nomad hood, bumpers, dash, headlight and parking light bezels, etc. fit the AMT '55 Bel Air Sedan? Are they the same parts from shared tooling? It looks like the rear bumper on both is sans guards, so I think they are the same?
  7. well as of today this little hot rod ensemble is done!!!!!!! I need to put a hook on the cable to hold the boat on the trailer but otherwise it's done!!!! 56 build thread the boat build thread Here they are.......
  8. Up next on the to-do list. My version of the Revell Cali Wheels Nomad. Gotta have them Supremes. Flattened out the hood abit. Pretty straightforward under the hood. Final ride height should be just a tad lower than this.
  9. Hello, for my first post, I'd like to show you my 1955 Nomad Pro-Street/Drag Wagon. I decided to call it the 9 Second Grocery Getter, for short I'll just call it the Grocery Getter. First, lets start off with the motor. It is a motor from a 1955 Badman Gasser kit. It is painted flat aluminum (oil pan, transmission) satin black (transmission) guards red (block) I re-painted the blower flat aluminum, since the chrome was not so good I painted the headers satin black and I drilled the ends out to look like actual pipe. Originally, I was just going to take parts of the interior and the chassis to fit the large wheels up there like this: But then I remember I still had the chassis to a prostreet 55 belair I did a while ago, so I cut it up and slapped it on there. More updates will be coming soon! Any advice/recommendations are welcome! -Glenn Also, where do you guys get your really wide slicks, and for what price?
