Scale I Build

Found 15 results

  1. Hey everybody a new build i started awhile ago,but is a slow WIP,building a replica of my 1:1 car using a transkit i've had for awhile.I have an Original transkit from All American Models,but i misplaced it in my stash😐.but i've got a few knockoffs in my stash so i'm using one of them. Many hours sanding to get the body ready for primer,added styrene strips for weather stripping since none was on the body The factory color for my car,had this can at least 25 years and yes,it still is good!
  2. Hey its gettin warmer,,happy spring to all. Just finished the AMT 70 1/2 Camaro,,I wanted it orange,,similar to box art,,but I used flat black primer,, sprayed w/Testors quikdry "Flaming orange" it turned out "Rootbeer Brown metallic" ,,which is ok too I guess. I should have used red or orange primer to get a better orange effect. Changed out the kit tires with some larger /wider profile,,added some basic wiring in Ebay,,made some seat belts from x-tras bx ,,hand painted the trim work. I do use BMF at times but not all the time,,depends on how crisp the molding work is on the kit to begin with. `Fun kit to do,,now on to my 68' Shelby GT-500 in pearl green,with the drag pack version! Thanks for lookin,,and get out and enjoy the warmer weather! Cheers.

    1980 Z28

    I'm still getting my new model room set up so ain't had a chance to get back to the builds I had in progress. Although I don't have any of my hundreds of old builds anymore, I still have photos of some I liked. I believe this Z28 was a 1980 Monogram kit, but not sure. It was in my display case for many years and the decals had faded some when I took these photos circa 2013 or so.
  4. I started this one I don't know how long ago, probably around 2015 or so. Anyway, playing with the Yenko Nova and 68 Chevelle I thought I'd get Chevy's other heavy hitter back. What is funny is I compared this body to the AMT 68 Camaro, and I think the AMT version looks a little smaller than it should be. What do you guys think?
  5. Well I built this from the foose issue of the 1/12 kit. This is my first big scale kit I have completed. Mostly box stock. Paint is a duplicolor gm color and the stripes are airbrushed on. I added the springs, vacuum lines, brake/fuel lines and other small details in the bay. Overall the kit was pretty decent to put together. There was a few fitment issues and the chrome plating is not very good. But the finished product came out very well. This will probably be my last finished build for 2018 ? Thanks for looking.
  6. Hi Everyone, So, after a break of over 18 years, I finally got back into modeling. The first car I did was my wife's choice of a blue 69 Camaro Z-28 RS. The build took two months (approx. 75 hours) and when completed, I entered it into a local model contest The Auto Modelrama 2017, sponsored by The Automotive Model Builders club. There were many categories and 2 theme categories; Cars from Songs and 50 Years of Camaro. I had entered it into the "Camaro" category and won first place. It was a great honor and I was overwhelmed with joy & surprise. There were alot of great builds and now I am looking forward to completing the next car model. !! TCB, Adam Elvis
  7. Coming in August 2017...
  8. Box isn't in as good of shape as the 92 was :-) Nothing is wrong with the kit, I just didn't have the frame in right. The instruction sheet. I'm using this kit for the frame and engine. Thanks for looking!
  9. Wow,,been seeing some great stuff on here today,,{not refering to mine as much} Anyways,,I dig the NNL shows here in SE Mich. I was at last one DAMM show,,and its cool the stuff you find in ziplock bags for 3-5$,,1/2 started glueblobs of beauty. This was such a case,,its supposed to be a turbo mtr,,and it came w/the turbo setup,but I like the reg mtr setup,,so modified that to reg carb setup,scratch built some side pipes,scratch built roll bar,did some minor wiring.plumbing in mtr bay. Painted w/testors quikdry enamel,,and flat sand interior. It didnt have the stock front grill in kit,so I got a grill from the spare parts bx,mounted behind air inlet in front grill area. All in all,it was worth the 5$. Just a hats off to MCM for adding my 1/12 67 Vette in your 2016 contest mag,,i grabbed 3 copies! Thanks so much,,S
  10. So, im back, unfortunatly the bel air and the f1 im planning to build has to go on the back burner as i need to get my 1:1 scale car on the road by july for bug jam, if i can, and i need every penny i can for that, so i will be doing some stuff with the kits i have that are in boxes or that im part way through,i got this and a vw beetle that i will be working on for the mean time. So, i got this kit a little while just for the sake of it, it was cheap, i like the camaro, the '69 aint my fave year but its the best set the model shop had. Not sure what i will do to it, i will probably just go stock, or close to it, which will be strange for me as i like to just go all or nothing with kits and my 1:1 car, but it will be some good practice. And here is the build so far, engine painted, chassis put together, the rest is just dry fitted: And there it is for now, i will be painting the dash and sorting that out tomorow, and will look more into the engine in question, i dont know how that particular dual carb setup works, i understand the dual carbs that are in front of each other, but im not sure where the throtle goes, or where teh fuel plumbs in, i also havent got the distributor on yet, i lost it... i will also be putting up my vw beetle build, and try to work on both. there is also a secret project that im working on, but im not happy with brush painting after painting that set, so im waiting until i paint it with a car before i upload that one.
  11. The foose camaro. Looking for a road race look or very mean street car. Starting pics. hope you like
  12. Call this one done. I could not find a outside mirror for it,but at least 7 rear view mirrors,typical. This one has the rear view mirror molded into the window AMT 68 Camaro Z28,orange car on box,tons of flash and little detail. VCG Resin brake booster. AMT 67 Impala engine.transmission heater hoses and mid-muffler forward exhaust. Shorten drive axle. Tamiya TS30 base and TS13 clear. Stock rallye wheels with Pegasus alu sleeves. Rubber alternator/fan belt cut from rubber sheet i got from Mike DeLuco. Engine decal from VCG Resin and Slixx. Bent some chrome sprue over a candle to try make the exhaust a little fatter. Here are some pictures, Thanks for looking.
  13. Hello. After little building because of weather i decided it was time to get going again. I thought i`d give this old Camaro a chance. It is molded in "lovely" orange and have tons of flash,but after some clean up,fitting and mock-up it is starting to look like a car. Still have the dead cow in trunk stance,i think it`s mostly because i have not glued the body to the chasis yet,but i`ll get on it. The wheels are sleeves from Pegasus with inserted original Rallye wheels. The engine who follow the kit was a joke. I had a spare 427 from the 67 Impala SS who got it`s home in this one,and it fit pretty good. I will also try use the plumbing from the Impala,and i found a period correct brake booster on Ebay,not to be found in the kit. Color and clear are from Tamiya. I thought i`l let it rest over night before i start fondle with BMF. This is the kit. Here is where i am at now. Thanks for looking.
