Scale I Build

  1. Here is my ‘82 custom Dodge Van! It’s the re-released “Bad Company” kit from MPC, with my own mix on the decals. The black flaming horse decals came from the MPC Pinto Pony Express re-issue, and the sunset flaming horse came from the recent release AMT ‘66 Mustang coupe kit. I thought the wizard decals in the kit looked goofy so I swapped in those horse flame decals. I think they look like they belong together! I painted the body in Tamiya X-12 Gold Leaf, and the interior in XF-7 flat red, with Future on the seats, dash and walls. This was my first time using Future floor polish and
  2. A-Team van by greenlight. Check it out.
  3. Hi guys. I've bought this kit to try to build an "all open" custom van, with carpeted interiors, and a custom trailer based on the metal one I have, which is way too heavy: And here's the copy, just with a little more room for the wheels: And here are the fenders, I've glued two sheets of heavy paper, and sanded it. I wanna finish it like raw metal, without painting: With the twin wheels: Current state: I've found the right plastic rod, so I can hook up the ramps like they were su
  4. This is probably the first model I created that I'm happy with the end result. With that said, it's far from perfect. Being that I'm still learning, there's plenty of imperfections like the misaligned front passenger side wheel, sub-par body paint job, and the overzealous amount of glue on the rear tires. There's also plenty of small details that I simply couldn't add in due to my lack of experience (although, I was able to paint all the Chevy logos gold, both on the grille and hubcaps). But I'm mostly happy with how it turned out, it's definitely unique, and I'm a fan of emergency vehicles.
  5. Saw this on a buddy's Facebook post and I was wondering about it???
  6. Hello, welcome to my new gallery! It's my first finished model of 2015, the kit is a 1984 Ford Transit by Esci in 1:24. Quite rare, and nowadays very pricey. I was able to get mine from Kingkit in the UK for about 1/3rd of what they go for on Ebay, and though I had in mind how it should end up even before I had bought it, I had my doubts once I opened the box. But then, chances are slim that you'll see one of these on the next modelshow unlike a VW bus. I know of only five of these built, and this is the only one built like that. The kit itself is a curbside, the chassis detail is only very ru
  7. First time trying a resin body. I don't know of any other manufacturer, so I think it's a Jimmy Flintstone. I'm opening it all up, so the first challenge will be to correct the gaps in the doors. Closing the gaps in styrene plastic is easy: simply cement on additional plastic and shape. With resin, I'm a little leery of gobbing on 5-minute epoxy as a filler. I've had that stuff easily separate from the styrene. If I mixed my own resin, could that be used as a filler? Bondo? I'd like to use the resin doors, since they have the Dodge script. Is anyone aware of a photo-etch set that
  8. My current build is the 1977 Chevy Van, that I am going to build into a camper. I have removed the roof to add a 24 inch extension and cut the back doors open. My intention is to add a cabinet with Microwave, Refrigerator, and sink; a table and chairs, bench seat/fold down bed, as well as storage overhead of the van cab. Carpet will be grey felt and the walls will have simulated paneling. The raised roof with simulate the fiberglass cap that was relatively common for conversion vans back then. I plan to paint the van white and use the blue decals that came with the kit to decorate the outside.
  9. Just completed this one. I used three paints for the body in layers, starting with Tamiya Light Gunmetal, then Tamiya Gunmetal, and finally Model Master One-Coat Blazing Black Lacquer. I printed these plates off some time ago when I did my KISS Army Vette Van... Borrowed "Dirty Donny" skulls for a cool look... And I made a rear tire carrier to fit my fifth wheel. Wheels and tires came from my Jeep CJ-7 kit that met a tragic end with the floor and our cat. Also hard to see are the two gemstone portholes I mounted on the back panels at the rear of the van
  10. I've been having so much fun building vans, I dusted off my old Monogram Vanpire that I've had in storage. I couldn't resist since I've always thought the Vanpire decals were cool & a bit frightening as a kid. To be sure, I sprayed them with Testors Decal sealer and they settled down like a charm. I had fun with this build. I cut out the moon roof openings and propped up the moon roofs. I also drilled out all the lightening holes in the steering wheel for accuracy. I mounted and painted the CB radio and 8-Track player. I tried to weather the bottom a little to show some wear. I als
  11. Just a box built 77 van, no paint on the exterior, Not much to show, just happy this was the first model I've been asked to build. My sisters company did commission me to build it for advertising purposes. they will ad their company logo stickers on it, So no exterior paint. fun 2 day build and it's all ready to go to work! Peace Oh and yes eventually I'll run out of monkeys! Jonathan
  12. I'm still waiting for my income tax return, and waiting and waiting... So I picked up a side project for fun and to fill the time! It's a little 1/32 scale 1978 Star Wars R2 D2 van kit, missing many part's but i though it would go great with the Moonscope thing. I was also Inspired by my good friends comic and children's costume play armor, on this build, Moonscope parts on this van with a tie fighter window! In a world of space exploration. it seems to fit well. Great timing as Snapz releases this weekend. Check them out: www.facebook.com/SNAPZLLC?fref=photo
  13. Finally getting around to messing with this one. Been wanting to do a custom van since my snap together model days of the 70's. I love these vans.
  14. Wondering if I should continue this project as a custom, finished shiny model... or go the Dr Cranky route and make it an apocaliptic vehicle... What do you guys think?
  15. Hi buddies, here is my last built in 2011 - completed in November. My Dodge A-100 Delivery Van: It based on the old IMC-Kit and a Resinbody (i think you know it) from Jimmy Flintstone To this body i will say, that it fixed perfect! The quality was really good and so i had only cut a little bit on the front and backframe. Also the windows and Doorpanels fixed perfect. Well done Jimmy! That was a easy and funny built. Enought of words, here are some pics - enjoy it ...more coming up... ... ...for a look inside the van...
