  1. Got the new Revell kit. Not bad, came out pretty nice. SAM_1374 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1375 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1376 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_1377 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  2. I bought a couple Jo-han 1969 Road Runners off eBay in recent weeks. This one in particular was more of a glue bomb than the other. So much glue was used to secure the glass that it melted the roof. I figured it would be a prime candidate for a convertible conversion. I picked up the AMT GTX convertible from Hobby Lobby, they conveniently reopened last week! I started by cutting out the tulip panel including tops of the quarter panels around the rear section of the interior. I had to narrow it a little bit at one of the natural seams. Then re-contour to match the shape of the deck lid. I removed the windshield surround from the GTX including the tops of the fenders and doors for added strength. Plus I kinda like the cowl shape better than Jo-han’s There are couple spots to sand, but it’s pretty much were I want it. I spent six hours, in a model car hang out online last night, fitting the interior. I will post those pictures a little bit later.
  3. Here is my second build of the year a 1974 Road Runner. The wing is from the 71 Cuda kit. Had a slight problem with one of the stripes being broken when I got the kit, but the painted stripe is barely noticable.

  4. Hi, everyone!, this is a custom Road Runner that i built soooo long ago that i cant remember when i built it, lol....i do remember building it for my brother
  5. Finished this one yesterday! Thanks for looking, comments welcomed.
  6. This is one that I originally built way back in 82 or 83 and sat on my shelf for a long time. Then I decided I wanted to repaint it so into a bath it went. This had to have been around 2000 or so. Yesterday I was looking for something in my storage when I ran across this and decided to get it back together. This will be just a straight rebuild of the original MPC kit with new paint and aftermarket decals only. Nothing fancy like swapping out the frame for the 71 Charger frame or anything like that. Originally painted some weird green I reshot it with Testors' lacquer go mango. I had just put the aftermarket decals on and I honestly do not remember where I got them from. They are the multi layer (each color is a separate decal) type that was available from someone back in the early 2000s but I don't think he does them anymore. The decals were very delicate so I have put on some setting solution and once I get the road runner decal put on I'll clear coat the body to protect them. I discovered Keith Marks makes decals for this and I almost thought of ordering a set of those but I did have these already so.... The totally incorrect 440 six pack engine! I will need to find some stock exhaust manifolds for this because the original build had Jo-han Hemi headers on it. Thanks for looking!
  7. These are the wheels I've picked for it, snazzy huh? 'll adjust the ride height in front for a more stock look. Thanks for looking!
  8. You know the release a few years back in the tin box with the 4" Road Runner? I just bought a couple of them off of Hobbylinc. My thoughts : What a REALLY NICE kit! Thoughtful, cool packaging, the decals are correct and... perfect, all the right parts. They did such a great job with this. You can tell, there was a lot of thought and care that went into it. Now, if only they'd do this nice a job reissuing that 71/72 Road Runner kit!!! BTW, it took my son 30 seconds to break the 4" Road Runner!
  9. The 1970-1971 Plymouth Rapid Transit System [RTS] Road Show cars are all found and restored (as necessary) , and are in the collection of one Steven Juliano . The attachment is of the 1970 Duster from that show . Has anyone attempted to replicate one or all of the cars from this collection ?
