Scale I Build

  1. I got this link at this year's SEMA - Motor Trend booth. It truly is free and you don't have to provide any personal information. I LOVE all the photos and articles from the golden age of hot rodding! https://www.motortrend.com/hotrod-archive/ Update 1/10/23: I'm not sure if others are having technical difficulties, but just recently my initial link to the HRM magazines starting acting up. I have been accessing it by going to the main Motor Trend page and clicking on "Magazines".
  2. For those of you who have "lost" the list of "which engines come in which kits" that FORCE had restructured into a "usable" format, it can be found on the 13th page of this category, have tried to just add a comment to it and bring it back into the active topics, but...…. DJ
  3. This is a build blog, and so see the "History and Info" and "Restoration" buttons in the right-hand side of the linked page for more. The completed restoration is beautiful. https://texacotankerproject.com/38-diamond-in-the-rough-the-lucky-survivor/
  4. Got this as a Christmas present from Dad. Not a bad kit. Pretty easy build. fits together nicely. I don't like the colors of the Baja, so I made a stock Bronco.

  5. Ok here's another project that i've had in my stash for over a year and brought it out occasianly when i got in the mood to work on it. I had bought the resin cab 54 abd removed the grille and was gonna chrome it and work on the resin cab, but after looking at it i decided why not try and use the 50 chevy cab for better plastic fitment and make my own 54. So little by little i had worked on it from an old spare 50 cab i had and started from the grille work back. So today i brought in with me to work and got back into it. Here is were i'm at on it so far. Reworking the front fenders, windshield, upper vent and fixing some cracks the cab had. I will also be making the correct rear bed sides as the 54 had them flat tops.
  6. I'll try it again with a truck. The rules for the Truck Quiz are No answers allow in the ongoing Auto quiz thread No comments in the ongoing Auto quiz thread that give any clues or suggestion to the car in question A PM must be sent to the one who has started the ongoing thread The PM must contain Manufacturer and Type In case of violating the rules the quiz will closed immediately and no winners will be announced
  7. Starting way too many projects at one time again. I was thinking that I could build a tribute to my cousins f-250 custom that he bought new back in 1973. I remembered 2 Dremel bits that I had that make the job a snap (right?). Well, I quickly regretted starting that. Turns out you need a much mor stedy hand to pull this off. I only finished one side of the cab and now I had to go back and put filler to correct all the inconsistencies in my snap chrome removal. Bad idea.
  8. This White Western Star morphed from an east coaster to a west coaster. In the process, the chassis was lengthened, as was the sleeper, & it got dual exhaust among some other goodies. The paint is a nice tasty cinnamon & chocolate.
  9. Hi Guys I am a brazilian modeler and new in the car modeling universe. I´d like to build the 1979 Ford Bronco as seen in the 240 Robert TV show. I am using the 1/24 Monogram ´80 Ford Bronco 2 ´n 1 model kit but the tires and wheels are not accurate. Could you please tell me where to get the correct set? Many Thanks in advance

  11. Does anyone know the Fruehauf & Wilson model numbers for these AMT trailers? Just for general curiosity. Thanks
  12. Country Road Diorama. More coming soon.
  13. Here is a very good site for truck kit instructions, box art and a lot more useful stuff. https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/truckkit_instructions/ https://public.fotki.com/modeltrucks25thscale/ This could maybe be pinned on top of the first page so it's easy to find.
  14. These lovely 1:24 or 1:25 scale fire trucks are part of the collection of a small fire-fighting museum in Brockton, Massachusetts. My notes credit Dave Frazer as their builder. There are also a few examples of horse-drawn apparatus among the collection that I believe were built or modified from a particular range of mixed-media "craftsman kits" produced here in Mass. in the late '40s / early '50s era. Two pages worth of pictures of the models in my album: I wish their website was more informative: https://www.brocktonhistoricalsociety.org/bhs/firemus.html
  15. I had several kits and projects going a few months ago, then took a leave of absence to remodel my house. I never liked the yellow wheels or the graphics on this model, so my first mods were to change that. I removed all of the graphics and painted the wheels black. I'll make new water slide decals for the finished wrecker. I saw another wrecker on eBay pretty cheap, and a 1:24 resin dump body and thought it would be cool to make a 1953 dump truck. Last night I got the first wrecker disassembled, and that was no easy task! Getting this all put back together will be a challenge to say the least.
  16. Thinking about getting another 66 Suburban to do as a 4x4. Wondering where to find suspension parts to do this. Does anyone do a resin conversion for this kit, or is there a kit that would work. I don't want a drastic lift like the MPC Deserter pickup, but more of a stock 4x4 height.
  17. My third diorama begins. The theme is around whiskey. I decided to build a section of an older building with an arch as the entrance to the club. There will be a section of some sort of water body on the right.
  18. Hello everyone. I’m new to scale modeling and this is my first diorama ever. I have been experimenting with preserved sheer moss, which I have used as grass. Please, feel free to critique and give some input. It’s still a work in progress as I’m waiting for some materials to arrive. I will repost with updates as I add more details.
  19. I started on a replica for a customer of his truck, I really wish i had another kit I could back half and do it up
  20. 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.
  21. I'm looking to make a scaled model of GMC's big block 305 V6 engine and I can't find any specs or actual dimensions or drawings of the engine. If someone already has it modeled in CAD let me know since I want to model the engine in Solidworks to make a GMC version of Revell's Suburban kit and 3D print everything. I just want to have the correct specs to model it properly. If you have the actual engine and you measured it or you know someone with the dimensions of the engine or if you somehow have GMC original blueprints of the engine that would be great.. I won't ask questions lol. I know about the gmcguy6066 website but I couldn't find any drawings with dimensions.
  22. One of my Better looking trucks. Came out real nice. Very good kit. 1 (92) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (94) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (97) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (99) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (100) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr 1 (101) by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2199 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr SAM_2200 by Eric Lucas, on Flickr
  23. http://www.autoworldstore.com/product_p/amt1046.htm It's a 'Future Release' and 'Pre-order' deal at Autoworld. My comments are: I owned a White/GMC Road Boss II for a brief moment. Detroit 8V92 Road Ranger transmission. Turbocharger over Suipercharger(the big one). Those are the engines you let off the throttle and they make a rapid 'Rap-Rap-Rap'. That's because they are two stroke engines. This is a neat kit. From the old days.
  24. This is my version of the ATM White Freightliner. I wanted to make a very tired and weathered truck and liked the look of the dual drive day cab. I used the salt method with a base of brown under the green and then added some more weathering with acrylics. The cab was very fiddly to put together, but other than that, I found it went together well. I shortened the stacks a bit and add some air hoses. I'm pretty happy with it and felt I didn't rush it with my second model kit since I was a teenager (I always got frustrated with models when I was young). Thanks for looking!
