Scale I Build

  1. Here’s my Revell Cadillac lowrider! This kit was a blast to build and went together very well. My only gripe is the fit of the lower body cladding and chrome trim panels. It’s painted Tamiya TS-8 Italian Red for the body, with TS-45 Pearl White for the vinyl top and interior. I did the interior over black primer to give some shadows in the crevices, but after 4 coats it still looks kinda silver or light gray in person. It looks fine to me though. Vinyl top is painted over gray primer and is the color I was going for. Anyway I definitely plan on buying another one of these kits! I do wish they
  2. Here's my 1968 Chevelle that I just completed along with a little back story. The owner bought her back in 1997 before the prices of Muscle Cars started going crazy with the intention of doing a complete restoration. Life and other things got in the way so it sat until a few years ago when he finally had time and resources to get working on it. The goal was to have a "triple threat" vehicle that looks and runs like a winner. He wanted it to be right at home at the strip, on the streets as a cruiser, and on the show grounds. After 3 years (actually weeks, lol) he feels like he acc
  3. hi everyone !😄 this is my REVELL 1/24 '70 dodge challenger T/A,an very nice kit and easy to build!! hope you guys like it!!🙂 and here is the video build if you are interested..🙂
  4. This is the Revell snap-together 2015 Mustang kit. This was my first try with aftermarket parts: wheels, tires, and disc brakes & calipers; photo-etched radio dial, speaker grills, and various Mustang emblems; military lenses for the front lights positioned under the grill; and acetate instrument panel dials. The rear-view and side mirrors are from an unbuilt ’69 Mustang kit. I drilled holes in the side mirrors and receiving holes in the body and used thin pieces of wire to act as pegs for mounting. I fabricated exhaust pipes from aluminum tubing. I found some photos of the real headlights
  5. To me the 1941 Willys is the best looking gasser. I have seen a ton of pics online and just love the way they look. I plan on getting one down the road to build and I'm looking at the Reveal Big John Mazmanian 1941 Willys. Show me what you have, what brand, and what year.
  6. Gestation happened in my Monogram Ferrari 275P vintage kit review thread. I started by barely tacking the engine together and onto the chassis pan. Measured and drew plans to figure out where to chop and modify. I thought cutting down the engine components would help, and considering the way Revell engineered it, nobody would notice. Each surface was filed down before reassembling with just a little more glue, but still can separate to paint. Cut apart the plenum, air filter and canister part. Sawed off the engine bay sides. I sawed, and in some cases scribed and b
  7. Dug out this stalled build which was started in 2013. At that time, adapted the wheels, set the ride height and got all the parts cleaned up and that's when I stopped working on it. Got the body out last year for prep and a coat of surfacer, then stopped working on it again. This time im going to try get it complete. The kit. As per usual my favourite wheels. Parts are all good to go, just need a wash and then paint. Makes me laugh they have been in this container for 8 years. Box stock chassis. Separated the x part of t
  8. Just finished this Revell kit, I enjoyed it very much. I admit I'm a masochist in that I enjoy decaling and this car has a lot of them! Curbside, low parts count, I see more of these on my bench in the near future. Comments welcome, thanks for looking.
  9. We've seen images of the old '50s and '60s era molds Revell had stored in their Illinois warehouse, some (many?) of which Atlantis Models acquired. They have begun to share publicly exactly what they acquired, starting with this mold for the Revell Douglas D558-2 Skyrocket: Let the automotive model related speculation and hopes begin.
  10. I didn't find any existing reviews of the 1/25 Revell Dodge Ram VTS Pickup concept truck, so here's a look at the contents of the 2012 "Trucks" reissue: https://modelkitreviews.proboards.com/thread/1583/revell-dodge-ram-vts-pickup I wish Revell would've included more accurate wheels and tires, too, but they got close: I've always liked this kit and felt it was a shame Revell chose not to release additional variants. A stock 4x4 would've been welcome, and/or an extended cab version, too, but maybe the glut of pickup kits on the market at the time (and from Revell alon
  11. Found this on the Revell store site. Dec 2013 ? Release Merry Christmas LOL
  12. Here’s my McLaren 570S from Revell Germany. This kit was more of a challenge than I expected with tons of tiny parts and decals. The fit was pretty good but final assembly was very finicky to get it all to line up correctly. As I read from other builders here, the carbon fiber decals did not want to cooperate so I left them off after the roof decal tore. Also, my kit was missing a headlight lense despite it being a new, sealed kit so I left the other off. RofG is sending me a free replacement part but it will take weeks; I’ll add them on when I get it. Body is the bare molded-in-color plastic
  13. My take on the '77 Pontiac Trans Am Bandit Resto-mod styled after Year One version. Mostly built out of the box with exception I added the round fog lights in the front bumper and removed the square ones in the lower air-intake. Added brass mesh in the side fender vents. Removed the molded in AC lines and made my own detail. Wheels are the kit Snowflakes inserted into Pegasus small aluminum sleeves. Trans Am and Bird decals are from Keith Marks, which are outstanding! Paint is all Duplicolor spray can with 4-polished clear coats, must say it's flawless smooth
  14. Tamiya paint TS-35 park green, Aoshima wheels with centre's painted H.O.K white. Stock grill replaced with mesh. smoked headlights and tail lights with Tamiya x-19.
  15. Revell's Mercedes Benz 190 SL, silly to add "Roadster" because the SL was always a roadster. ? I've had a wild hair to get one, found a decent priced re-issue on feeBay, so *had to* get it. Price was good because tires are missing, but I have plans for it. Searched, did not find that anyone had built it, prove me wrong. Picture on Scalemates: I know this is based on the 300 SL, but sort of what I'm thinking of. I see the Fujimi 1/24 Mercedes Benz SLK 230 Sports Version Model Kit 12524 is a modern version, and Tamiya made one, but both lack an engine, correct? An alternativ
  16. Well. Where to begin... I’ve heard numerous horror stories about this kit. They’re all true. In the spirit of putting positive vibes into the universe for 2021 I’ll say 3 nice things about this kit: 1. M.C. Escher didn’t draw the instructions. 2. Salvador Dali wasn’t commissioned for the box art. 3. With patience, care, a little know-how and a prescription for Xanax, it really does build up nicely. I reworked every single hinge (and there’s no shortage of them). The original tabs on the deck lid were gaudy, so they had to go. I filled the square holes left behind in the body and mounted a
  17. Painted with some auto touch up grey, interior is done with Humbrol reds. I lost interest in this when the decals disintegrated on me. Today I decided I either needed to finish it or toss it, so here it is finished! Box stock except for tires and wheels. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed. This is my 4th for the year!
  18. Just a simple 4x4 build to cleanse the palate. Box stock plus a distributor. Colors are Testor’s White Lightning/Wet Look clear and Tamiya AS-19 Intermediate Blue/semigloss clear. Grill and bumpers are Alclad High Gloss Aluminum. Thanks for looking. As always, comments, critiques, questions and conversation are welcome.
  19. 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
  20. Hey! I'm looking for vintage Revell Chopper kit. Complete or just a box is also enough. Thanks ? (Image borrowed from internet) -Olli
  21. Found this kit at a flea market not to long ago. To my surprise it's complete other than a decal sheet if it came with one. Was wondering if anyone has any information or interest in this kit. Can't find any for sale on eBay Is it rare or has been reproduced in the recent past? Thanks!
  22. I decided to stray from my comfort zone to try my hand at a supercar. Really a nicely done kit, cut to tight tolerances. The whole way through the build I was worried that it was going to turn out looking awful. In the end, I’m tickled with the finished product. It’s pretty far from perfect but pretty from afar. Built straight outta box. Color is Tamiya Bright Orange w/ Testor’s Wet Look.
  23. After five years, it is done! I started this one back on January 15, 2015 and just now got it done August 7th of this year. Painted Testors White Lightening with wet look clear, interior is Tamiya TS-69 linoleum brown, straight out of the box. Thanks for looking, all comments welcomed.
  24. Here are some photos of a recent commission build of a Spitfire by Revell in 1:32 scale. Its a straight out of the box build using Tamiya paints. Very nice kit, well detailed and relatively simple to build. Thanks Chris www.wardsmodelbuilder.com wardsmodelbuilder@outlook.com
  25. Haven't posted much on this one until now. I wanted to add a 69 Charger 500 to my Chargee shelf. Looked at the old MPC kit and thought to myself, how much trouble would it be to use a Revell kit for one? Went digging thru my stash, found Charger Daytona kit that I had held for something, found an extra 68 Charger. Cut the fenders off each and swapped the 68 fenders onto the Charger Daytona body. Alittle putty, primer, paint and clear looked good. Got it out last night to foil trim and noticed that the putty had sank into the holes that i had filled and putty for the Daytwing. Grabbed some wat
