Scale I Build

Found 11 results

  1. Last week I was looking at all the models I have in progress and decided I needed to get at least one more done this year. I picked the Tamiya TS-50 Mica blue painted Revell 70 Torino GT kit. Old kit started in April 2005 But when I started to work on it I discovered I was missing some vital components of the front suspension, like lower control arms, tie rod, and stabilizer bar. Then I realized I forgot to put the rear view mirrors on before I painted, and the paint job was not as good as it was 15 years ago. So, I started my new and improved version of this same kit
  2. I'm looking for some resin copies of the CJ hood scoop found in the Revell 1968 & 70 CJ Mustang kits. Thx Ron
  3. I built this model because my neighbor had one when I was in Jr. High. His was orange and had chrome reverse wheels with chrome baby moon hubcaps. Later on he added a 69 Mustang hood scoop with with 351 callouts. It is basically a box stock build with a few minor mods. I built the streetmachine version with the two 4bbls and the chrome headers. The chassis has very roomy rear wheel wells so i opted to clearance them wee bit more for wider rubber. I widened the stock GT rims by adding chrome rings. The decal set is from Keith Marks and includes the rear tail panel grid, the hood scoop
  4. Nice kit, modern molds of course. Great pad printed tires, but no brand name. Sweet stock wheels. Nice factory stock version of the car. Check out my Starsky & Hutch kit review for the same kit in the show's 'hopped up' style. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_UqWtMj7SD0
  5. Hello everyone! Started my first build of the year and wanted to share my progress thus far. I am taking my time and attempting some different tricks for this build, like panel scribing, flocking and BMF. I used Model Master Ford Engine Blue, aluminum, steel and Testors flat bronze, flat black and gloss red on the engine components. The interior was sprayed with Testors flat black out of a rattle can and detailed with a silver paint marker that I puddled it's paint onto a plate and used a tooth pick to apply to the trim. In hindsight, I should used BMF for the trim, but you learn from you
  6. With everyone recently building the popular S&H Torino, thinking I need to build one of these too, picked one up last week and thought about how awesome everyone's Torino's came out, except they all look the same. I get it, it's a tribute build, but what if the Starsky and Hutch TV show was today in 2016? I thought about keeping the same theme of their car but give it an updated appearance, RESTOMOD style! Honestly I never liked the 74 Torino with the big chrome bumpers and guards, just looked ugly to me. Also never cared for that out-of-balanced design of a "stripe" even as a kid, I didn
  7. My idea of what a new Striped Tomato might look like if the Starsky and Hutch cop TV show was to come back today. Of course started with the Revell kit, which I will say is an excellent kit, very detailed, little flash, really none, and fitment was excellent throughout the build. I of course made several mods to this build, first was tucking and narrowing the huge front and rear stock bumpers. Added a air-dam effect to the front with plastic and putty. added the Eliminator hood scoop to keep Starsky from sliding across the hood, which of course drove Hutch crazy, you're welcome Hutch... Gave
  8. I am working on my second Revell S&H Gran Torino, but this time it's not going to be box stock. I plan to make it the Boss 302 Gran Torino, I think. I am combining the Torino with goodies from the 2013 Boss 302 kit (i.e. 5.0 motor, modified kit wheels, interior etc.) Just starting this build. Please let me know what you think. I will post pics if anyone wants to see them. I have been building for years, but new to sharing in a public space and I am open to suggestions.
  9. Just got the kit a couple weeks ago. It's not a bad kit, though I don't like the thin metal emblems. Almost lost them, and on top of that I bent the metal that goes over the tail lights. Over all though it came out good.
  10. I missed this kit the last time around...has anyone gotten the new release?
  11. One of my favorite Ford builds.
