    Anything that's on 4 wheels & looks cool.
  1. Wow!! Very unique build and well played out.
  2. Nicely done David.
  3. Man you got ALL the good out of that kit!! VERY nicely done Gil.
  4. Took almost 3-1/2 years to get back to you Gil but hey.....I made it. Thanks.
  5. HOLEEE SCHMOKES!!!! That thing rocks the friggin' house!!!
  6. I've heard nothing but good stuff about these kits from numerous builders as well as reviewers. You've done one bang up job on this one GIL! Thumbs up all the way!!
  7. Cleanly built F-84 Ron.
  8. Beautiful build Mark!! Despite your troubles it looks like you came out top for the win.
  9. It has been forever and a day since I've last posted on here. I apologize for the long absence. I have since finished this build but wanted to post the completion of it here. I will be posting some more as there are some good folks here. I started out with these two kits and a Pro Street vision between the two. I've always had an eye for Revell's "Street Demons" series back in 1983 but I don't really care for the gasser look that a few of 'em had...……..this one in particular. In staying with the theme I set out to change things up a little bit in the way of a slight color change up, stance, powertrain and interior. Powertrain : Came from the Revell 1968 Hemi Dart kit with upgrades to the ignition, fuel and throttle linkage systems. Wheels: From Future Attractions. I had my machine shop at work cut the rear wheels in half due to the fact that they were just too dang wide to use with the tires I had. Paint: Testors Icy Blue Lacquer, Testors White Lightning Lacquer and Testors Wet Look Clear all decanted and shot through an airbrush. Decals: Speedway Decals Interior Shots: Additional engine shots:
  10. Gotta love the General Lee! Good show Mike!
  11. Just to let everybody know.............I am still working on this one. I've got the chassis mostly finished up except for the brake rotors up front and the exhaust system. I've also gotta tweak the toe in setting on the front end to keep the excessive toe in look from happening on the front wheels when fully assembled. I narrowed the rear axle to get the wider tires underneath the rear fenders and lowered the front suspension a good 1/8" to make it an even drop all the way around. I did acquire the only PE piece made for this kit which will help the front end out ALOT. Sorry Revell..................that's good for OOB but it aint gonna cut it on this build. I'm currently working on the engine which will take me a bit because of the detail I want to throw at this beast. I'll be robbing a lot of the parts except for the base engine block and transmission (which I'll leave OOB) from the Revell Hemi Dart kit. I was going to post some engine progress pics as well but the Spaz Stix clear doesn't work well with Model Master acrylic paint. Turned it white in the crevices so I'll be shooting another thin coat of orange on the block and re-coating the clear with Tamiya clear like I usually do the next time around. Learning curve complete.
  12. This kit comes with a blown 426 Hemi but I don't like that nasty scoop coming up out of the hood. My aim is to fill in the hole in the hood and to change the induction up on the engine a bit. Gonna go with a Ramcharger 426 instead:
  13. I ended up visiting that site and you're right. Lotsa goodies on there. I do have a Porsche in my stash so I may re-visit it at "decal time".
