Scale I Build

Found 13 results

  1. Well I think I am calling this one done! (Except plates) It is my second build since I was a kid. Lots of scratch building as the kit was lacking this and that! I went for the "daily driver" look. I was building this kit while also working on my 54 Chevy sedan. I enjoyed this kit as I remember the real thing everywhere when I was younger. Hope you enjoy checking it out!
  2. I got started building weathered street rods years ago after reading an article titled "Beaters" by Pryor Passorino in Plastic Fanatic. Since then I've been learning techniques from the military guys and applying them to my hot rod efforts. My latest will be based on the venerable Monogram '36 tool that has been around since I was a kid. I'll be using the Revell 2 in 1 "Car Show " version. Getting the proper stance is no more difficult than substituting a length of evergreen channel for the stock front crossmember. The rear is already perfect. F
  3. Here’s a 72 Cheyenne that I built several years ago, but recently had another go at it improving the details and weathering. I had a lot fun updating the build.
  4. Here is a Revell Peterbilt 359, I built as a 1982 Peterbilt 359-119 Farm Truck, still hard at work today. Backstory: The Ol’ Pete spent the first 10 years of its career as a long-haul owner-operator truck, but took up its second life as the primary truck on Hartic Farms’ roster in the early 90’s. Today, she’s been long relegated to secondary duties. However, she is mostly original, very reliable, and still the favorite of the original farmer’s son, who has dreams of resorting her to her former glory. She was the first truck he learned to drive as a kid, and that’s probably the reason she’
  5. Hello everyone, here is my fifth build for my “a day in 1979” series of models for a future diorama. It represents my uncle’s car as I remember it back in the 70’s. It was his daily driver and his only car for many years. I weathered it slightly to show some day to day use. I hope you enjoy it and let me know what you think. Thanks for looking!
  6. 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!
  7. My first build in almost 30 years. This is an old issue Revell 54 Chevy gasser kit that was sitting on my shelf. It was missing quite a few parts like the front door panels, front and rear bumpers, front and rear suspensions, engine, and tranny among other things. What was there was a broken back window, cracked front valence panel and the body was so thin you could almost see through it. I thought about finding a re-issue version but opted for fabrication and robbing my parts boxes. I began with weathering the body to hide some of glue stains and went from there. I used a combination of
  8. Meant to represent a truck that is used but not abused, perhaps maybe even a hand me down from a parent, and kept in the family since new. I think I may have went a little further on the weathering than I intended, and there are some areas that I simply failed at. I thought about working on a few more areas, but feel that I needed to call this one done at some point. This is the most extensive weathering I have done on a model, and represents some first attempts in various areas as well. Started with AMT Super Stones 78 Ford pickup After market items used as is or modified; Detail Master pow
  9. I finished this Galaxie about two and a half years ago. This was my first attempt at post apocalypse vehicle. My first attempt at weathering too. I watched all the videos and all the techniques I could find on Youtube. What would we do without internet??? I think that I repainted the car body four times. Never happy with the weathering job. In the end I was very happy with it. http:// http:// trunk cover closed: http:// trunk cover open: http:// The fuel storage. I made the 55 gallon drum out of a container that held diabetic blood strips. http:// http:// http://
  10. Just finished building this '57 Chevy "barn find" vintage gasser. You can get all the details and more photos on my site at the link. http://www.svensworldofwheels.com/57_chevy_barn_find_gasser_page.html
  11. I'll post pictures of the body soon when I get the color scheme finished, but for now I need help with wiring the engine (It'll be my first time, but I've a good plan already). So far, my plan was to use picture hanging wire (was my only quick + cheap option), "drill" the spark plug holes on the valve covers, and glue the wires through the holes. BUT: Now I can't figure out how to glue them on the Distributor Cap!
  12. Hi everybody, here is my 66 Riviera - to make three, in this section this week, complete. After a failed paintjob for a cool Lowrider, a missing enginebay in the kit, i had "no other chance" to safe him not to throw in the trash. Take a look at my Lowrider... stay a while for the pics inside...
  13. Hallo everybody, today i want to show you a two-week-built from February this year. In times, when i built too much details, i need a simple kit to relax. Based on the amt kit (#6062) with the camper inside, i tested on this car, how to weather decals and to brush street dust on it. Take a look: ...
