  4. Some cool stuff guys. Here's one with a little story. I used to melt some of my models as a kid. I know no one else ever did that. I put a little rubber man in this 49 Ford with his head sticking through the windshield. Then I cut my finger, and put blood on him. I came home one day from school, and it was missing. My mom had found it, and threw it in the trash. I dug it back out got rid of the man then put it in a box, and saved it. :eek: 098.jpg

    Amusing story, Ron. When I was a dopey little kid I called my pal to ask how he
    put primer spots on one of his models. He told me he held it over the fire
    on the stove. So I stuck my Wilbur Shaw Maserati Indy car in the flame and watched
    it instantly melt into a blob. The next day at school he told me he was just
    goofin' on me. He had just smeared pencil lead on it. Ah, my maroon Boyle Special,
    dead as a door nail.

    @mchook, insane weathering...love it! Really exceptional.
    @Ron Funkhouser, great story. Looks excellent. I've never heard of the method, but sure looks great.
    @quick85, did the fellow get his share afterwards?

    Guys, since the bench is now clean and orderly, thought a couple from the light box would be OK. I only do light box stuff when the car is done...and the bench is clean!

    Already drawing up plans for the next endeavor. We're all nuts in our own way....just old cars are so much fun and what a great hobby, be it small or large.

    I'm thinking maybe a scratchbuilt '32 Ford 3 window as a Fuel Altered car. With a Hemi of course, no room for a hood on this one. No fenders either.

    Thanks fellas for looking and liking, greatly appreciated.

    Mike..

    I recently built two Moebius kits which went together really well and were easy to detail, the ‘54 Hudson Club Coupe and the ‘65 Comet AF/X. Here are a few shots of the finished Hudson:

    Here’s the ‘65 Comet AF/X which I did as Hayden Proffitt’s car using the excellent Slixx decal set. Fitting the 427 SOHC cammer with headers into the Comet chassis makes me appreciate the ingenuity of the original 1:1 fabricators (Bill Stroppe?), very challenging assembly! I still need to fabricate an upper radiator hose to replace the kit hose which interferes with some of the aftermarket engine detailing I added.

    Onto my next super stocker, Revell’s ‘64 Ford Thunderbolt which I’m building as Dick Brannan’s car.

    Mike, I didn't pop him in the nose and sixty years later we're still good pals.
    As far as your next build, take on something simple like a 1960 "Birdcage"
    Maserati.

    Here’s the last of three 1/25 car kits I’ve been building since the ‘stay-at-home’ thing started (did the Hudson & Comet SS above), Revell’s ‘64 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt Super Stock done up as Dick Brannan’s car:

    When I started this marathon multiple kit build, my production line included a 1/48 WWII Soviet Shtormovik attack plane. I’ve been somewhat burned out building planes (and ships and tanks..) and have really enjoyed the fast gratification of these car builds. I promised myself I’d finish this commie plane before starting anymore cars (although I’m thinking of washing the mold release off the parts in the AMT “Color-Me-Gone” ‘64 Dodge kit that is lurking on my bench....)

    Not Mine but a very cool build. This was shared by a friend who took a picture of this 56 Chevy years ago at a Modelers show. The builder made a 4dr car out of a 2dr and used similar factory colors for the year. Nice detail representation of the actual "Cutaway Cars" the auto manufacturers would display at new car shows. Second image is of a real GM display.

    Thank you! I made it for a customer, they provided some pics of their truck and I made them a model to match. It’s a lot of fun! I like doing the really rusty and patina ones.

    First I want to say thanks for the comments and likes on my last post of built up 40 fords and to all the guys who have posted their build ups,good job and keep it going.Mike,your skills are way beyond mine,that rail is killer,can't wait to see the '32 Ford fuel altered.On my bench currently are 5 kits in the work in progress stage.Getting close to finishing the '57 Ford Del Rio.

    Colors are over Model Master Gray Primer,which are Model Master Citrus Green,Tamiya Semi-Gloss Black,this is before clear coated.

    Interior pieces are decaled and door panels are airbrushed with a color I had in stash that is pretty close to the decal color on the seats.Colors are Model Master Interior Green and (damn)now I forgot what the color is on the panels,anyway,I'll check later.
    [​IMG]

    This is the Revell '67 GTX that has been painted MM Gray Primer,Testors 1 Coat Purplicious followed by Tamiya Clear Blue.Just going with a street car look with the custom wheels from the 67 Coronet Foose kit.

    Finally bought some of Tamiya's panel line paint and man I am impressed on it flows with a touch of the brush,you can't make out the rear but the grille is fairly visible to see what I mean
    [​IMG]

    This is the Lindberg '64 Belvidere,colors are MM Gray Primer,Testors 1 Coat Icy Blue,Tamiya Clear Red,Testors 1 coat Wet Look Clear.Agai just going for a street stock build with some torque thrust wheels and tires from a Revell '32 ford kit

    And finally the Revell '57 Chevy 150 that will be a gasser,thanks to Tim Boyd for the inspiration from a Scale Auto column.Colors are MM Gray Primer,Testors 1 Coat Purplicious and 1 coat Wet Look Clear.

    In my effort to help add to the world’s record of scale models being completed during these stay-at-home days, here’s some shots of my latest build of the Round2/AMT/Lindberg ‘64 Dodge 330 426 Max Wedge “Color-Me-Gone” SS/A. This kit did not go together as smoothly as the “Lawman” Plymouth SS I posted above due to fit challenges between the headers and some of the front end undercarriage components. Best part of these Round 2 AMT re-pops are the fabulous Cartograph decals.
    Stay healthy everyone and model on....
