Thanks Farmer, I have always liked your Plymouth, it looks great.
built this in the hotel room, last weekend. brush painted it Flat Black. with some sand thru to give he used look. I call it building it the old school way.....like I did back in the day.
LYLE, THIS IS COOL!!!!
More basic slot stuff... and yes they do fly..1/24.. 2 Ovals and dragstrip in the woodie shop..
Wow i really enjoy SUNDAY models on the h.a.m.b, and a big thanks to Fat141 again for posting up some of my stuff. keep em coming please.
Cool stuff guys !!
Man, great stuff! I like the diorama & the 59 El Camino.
That 41 Plymouth really looks nice. I want to see more, especially the front end treatment.
Lyle, are those first few models in your post Bill Stillwagon's work?
I added the beltline trim to my Merc. using .040" half round strip.
After it was glued on, I sanded some of the curvature off of the top of it & cut it at the door lines.
I also did some more work on my '50 Merc accessory steering wheel. It's still in bare plastic, but I wanted to see what it would look like, so I added BMF to the center & spokes, made a horn ring out of wire, & used a photo of the 1:1 center covered in epoxy for the center.
Yes. The first few are from Bill Stillwagon.
I'd like to see this one in a life size version. Thats pretty kool!
I reworked the front fender openings on my Buddy L project, cleaned up the loose ends , getting ready to strip it and bondo it.
Your work is truly inspiring Steveb! Unbelievable clean modifications and great taste!
I can show you the front end of the Plymouth some other Sunday, it has a ´49 Mercury grille surround and the frenched and tunneled headlights from the Revell Merc.
Hey bro I saw the inner fenders tonight in the garage. Just remember I only have one more Buddy L left.
Well a little late but these are me projects.
here is two i just finished
really nice looking (as well as the added trim on the Mercury). why wasn't it painted before detailing? won't it be harder now? assembly sequence is something i tend to struggle with!
Thanks! When I peel off the BMF on the center, the epoxy will come off with it, & the horn ring is glued with water soluable glue. I was checking to see how everything looked, & now know what to do once it's all painted.
I'm digging the Merc side trim trick & the accessory steering wheel. Good stuff.
Good stuff smitty29
couple ive been working on for new diorama and a replica of my truck
here is another picture of the Barris diorama that my dad and I made. Thanks, Matt
Steveb, your work on that merc is just incredible. The small details will make it probably the finest, most accurate 49 merc model ever. What are you going to use for the power plant?
Great stuff. For all of you that aren't in our model group. Join up.
Wow! These models are amazing! It makes me want to go get one and build it, I have not worked on a model since I was a kid but I think its time to give it a try again. I LOVE all the customizing you guys do!!! SO COOL!
Here's a few that I've done in the past couple years.
1:12th scale work in progress
work in progress
Man, you all have amazing talent!
I mentioned on an earlier thread that I wanted to build a model of every car I've owned (something many of us planned I'm sure), but this one was done in reverse... I did this one as soon as the first 3window kit hit our stores as a guide to what my 1 to 1 deuce would look like.
I'd also like to once again apologize for the crummy pic (I like to blame the camera.. )
Sheeeeet, Jaysix, you got some good uns there mate. Where you been hiding?
Jaysix, your ´49 is badass!
