Scale I Build

  1. Lest not forget our humble beginnings… I had this poor old pickup in my 1950s Ford Pickup parts box. Built by some kid somewhere back in history, I don’t even remember how I came into it. It would have been easy to just toss it since I have a whole box full of this kit.. It wound up sitting on top of my model room TV where it would call my name! So I started playing and you know where it went! And she rolled off the workbench this morning! Part of this build was to have a no pressure build, and to retain some of the character the original builder put into it. Thus w
  2. "Post traditional" seems as good a term as any for what what was happening past the usual cutoff date for the traditional hot rod style (1963-ish?). It doesn't really tick off the usual traditional boxes, but at the same time, it isn't one we've seen a lot of , those interest seems to be growing. The starting point is a Lindberg '34 Ford pickup, and most of the inspiration is coming from these two rods: So the plan is five spoke mags and blue stripe tires if I can find something suitable, with a cedar (stained basswood actually) bed cover for the Northwest look. Here's a moc
  3. Hi all! I would like to show you my latest build - Kit from Revell GMC Pickup with snow plow but built in civil version. Initial kit is pure on interior details and in engine bay. It required a lot of improvements and parts manufacturing from scratch. Some of the extеrior parts were machined from aluminum. Aftermarket was also used. For interior I machined door panels. Wooden finish decals were user from the equal Chevy 4x4 kit. Steering wheel whom Chevy SS kit but restyled to GMC shape. Pedals, gear selector are scratched. Chassis were detailed with wire, bolts and brake lines
  4. Built from this kit Which also had custom parts for the George Barris hot rod version. Some of the customizing parts looked goofy or didn't fit very well, so I sourced some bits and such from the spares bins to make a modern pickup rod. Mods as followed: Independent front suspension made from Ferarri Enzo pieces and Monogram 1992 Corvette A arms Monogram 1992 Corvette also gave it's independent rear suspension + axle. Wheels and tires are from a Revell Motor City Muscle '69 Shelby GT500. Disc brakes are from a Hummer H2 Kit's custom exhaust was lengthened
  5. Just finished up this MPC ‘75 Datsun truck! Built from the recently reissued Lil’ Hustler kit. Airbrushed in Tamiya XF-17 Sea Blue for the exterior, XF-55 Deck Tan for the interior. Box stock except for the sport door mirror from the AMT ‘66 Mustang. This kit went together pretty well overall with plenty of detail, but there was a fair amount of flash on most of the parts. Also, my chrome tree was warped so I couldn’t use many of the custom parts (not that I wanted to). Overall I’m happy with the results and I love the color combo!
  6. This is a restoration I did a few years ago. I got it in a trade with a member here. It was in decent shape with just a bad '60's paint job, missing emblems, stock tail lights and firewall. It also had most of the trailer. I decided to build it as a curbside and just concentrate on the body and interior. I separated the cab from the bed and filled in the cab wall. I separated the grille from the bumper. Opened the grille, drilled out the molded in headlights, added reflectors and lenses. I modified both bumpers and added bumper bolts to the front bumper. I scratch built a splash pan. I made ne
  7. I'm going to try to do something with this to make it more detailed and interesting:
  8. Here's my finished version of the Moebius 66 Ford F-100 short bed pickup which is based on the second round test shot. The tooling is about 95% ready to go at this point and final test shots should be available shortly. Colors I used are Rangoon Red over Wimbledon White. Still waiting on the decals which will include some scripts which are missing from my build up. Moebius is shooting for the first release to be before the end of the year, most likely it will be the 66 Flareside version. Look for a display of these kits at th
  9. I owned this 1969 Chevrolet C-10, got from a friend who needed the money, died last year, nephew bought it because it was sold new in Safford (still had the service plate with the manual) to a relative. It grew on me, found out why they are very coveted, much like the model kits! ? I nicknamed it The Green Barge because a friend owned a nice motorcycle named The Green Monster. Currently own a 1968 C-10, so can use for reference (which is the same blue this model was painted). Going to build for a future diorama idea, so not going to scratch-build an accurate chassis, but will grind off
  10. Well here i am again, starting another model. I happen to be a fan of strange/uncommon cars and engines, which makes this build super interesting for me! The plans are to lower the truck, add some cool fender flares, and some killer wheels. But you cant have a ridiculous truck without a ridiculous engine, i'm currently torn between four engine choices (1994 Corvette Ls, 1968-73 Corvette engine, adding a supercharger to the stock 4 banger) I'm now out of school working full time, so progress may be slow but hopefully I can keep progress onthis one.
  11. AMT's 1972 Chevrolet Cheyenne Pickup. I used to own a 1969, standard model without the fancy interior and extra side trim, it was sold in Safford, AZ and still had the Protecto plate in the Owner's Manual, bought from a friend whose grandpa was the original owner, made an agreement to sell back when he had the money, but he died, nephew contacted me to buy it back. It worked on a ranch, so it had the strange back bumper, it had been repainted after the front right corner was wrecked, I removed the saddle tanks, plastic bed liner, and chromed bed edge protectors, so off the bat it's not reall
  12. Preliminary box art for the forthcoming 1/25 MPC Dodge D-100 Pickup kit:
  13. Alrighty then, Haven't posted here for a while. I'm primarily a rc scale ship guy, but have always loved model cars. Every now and then I get an idea based on everyday life, and here it is. Started with the MPC '75 Datsun pickup kit; made the flatbed from styrene sheet/strip. The porta-potty is a resin item from Scale Equipment. This a curbside, so no under the hood shots. I stripped the kit mag wheels, and sprayed them flat white, with a healthy coating of rust/dirt. The body is Model Master flat medium blue rattle can, with an undercoat of red oxide primer. Bumper/grill/mirrors w
  14. Should be out within the next two months or so. Excellent choice for the box art. Original issue, for comparison:
  15. This scary little puppy is finished! My goal was to have it on the table at the Philly NNL last Saturday and I managed to finish it up Friday afternoon with time to spare! This is a project started back in 2008, revisited in 2012 and finally put on the bench with intent of finishing it about a month ago. I had asked friends for suggestions on a number of details and incorporated a lot of their feedback into the final model. Falcon Ranchero bed.. some guys at the Philly NNL thought I used the bed from the 1/32 Ranchero, but no it's a sliced and diced bed from the 1/2
  16. With all the excitement prior to the 24 Hour Build I literally forgot to take photos and post a model I had completed the year before! This was my 24 Hour Build project for 2014, that I didn't complete. In this photo you can see when I packed it in at 6:14 am on Sunday. There were things I didn't like about it, and knew I didn't want to finish it that way. One of the things you may notice are the HUGE almost working hinges in this kit. I had already built a Jimmy Flintstone resin van and he had correct hinges. So I did glue the doors shut and add ones the right size made from Evergreen round.
  17. I want to make a model of my son's 1:1 1981 Chevy truck he inherited from my dad. I've got the body itself sorted out, including scratch building the camper shell, but I need to figure out the grille. I did a Google search and found a picture of a model with the correct grille. The grille looks like it is resin. I'm looking for that EXACT grille.
  18. First of all, I would like to say hello again to everybody here! It's been a long while since I've worked on any models. Now that the re-introduction's out of the way, I have a question: what kind of engine is in the AMT '79 Ford Firestone pickup? I have the Model King variant that was released about a decade ago, so I'm under the presumption that it has the same engine.
  19. Originally a Lindberg kit, now packaged under the AMT label, the 1/20 scale 1992 Toyota 4x4 Pickup should be available soon:
  20. Hi everybody, I am thinking about building a crew cab pickup and wanted to know what you think would be a good kit to use. It can be Ford, Chevy, Dodge, or anything else. I just want a kit that would be easy to build into a crew cab.
  21. Gonna give weathering a shot on this 53 Ford pickup. It's going to be a work truck and I'll be going with the salting technique over this rust colored primer.
  22. As you can see by the award plaque, this was built a while ago... testers Candy red over metallic red with decals from an IMSA monza kit. dats-am03 by Mike, on Flickr dats-am01 by Mike, on Flickr dats-am02 by Mike, on Flickr
  23. Here is an old thread fix caused by the botophucket debacle, Conceived and built in the 80's, it's going to get some attention to resolve some issues (like no back glass) after the Phantom Ranchero GT is done. Scan of photo taken in the mid 80's gremlin01 by Mike, on Flickr More recent photos with better camera gremlin04 by Mike, on Flickr gremlin07 by Mike, on Flickr gremlin03 by Mike, on Flickr gremlin05 by Mike, on Flickr IMG_3262 by Mike, on Flickr
  24. Here is a scan of a fuzzy photo from the 80's Some pics of the engine before changing to more "factory" options. Dual quads and manifold removed, going with single 4-bbl carb setup The body is already soaking in the purple pond, but it doesn't seem to be having any effect on thirty-something year old car paint, going to have to use brake fluid. Comments welcomed.
  25. Hello, here is another of my latest builds.. Brush paintjob and some details added..
