    I am still wrapping up this model and added wires and polished the paint to a showroom finish. The 40 year old decals were a challenge to apply but I’m happy with the outcome. I mocked it up. The stance is sweeet!

    Revell’s 1/25 Big John Willys kit, OOB other than some rechroming, engine detailing and Slixx decals. I cut off the funky cantilever snap-fit tabs on the hood and filled in the mating slots on the body. Nice simple kit that looks like a real 41 Willys Gasser when it’s done.

    @mchook. Can you give some details on your little garage scene? I’ve got a bunch of die cast Harley-Davidson’s that we’re my dads. I’d like to create a diorama to display them. I’d want to keep it in the same scale of the bikes. Thanks!

    Hi, I built the garage out of 3/8" sheetrock. I peeled the paper off one side & scribed the blocks on the otherside. The inside has 1/24 scale tools & parts from various kits. I have more to add I just haven't done it yet. SUNP0019.JPG SUNP0022.JPG SUNP0024.JPG

    I entered the Desert Scale Classic virtual show & was shocked to learn I got something for my old Willys wrecker. This is the first contest I entered in about 30 years, it was fun & easy. Thanks to everyone that had something to do with this great experience.

    Here are my recent versions of AMT’s very excellent ‘62 Bel Air and truly terrible horrible ‘63 Impala built as Dave Strickler’s/ Bill Jenkin’s successful “Old Reliable” super stockers. I’ve always believed white should only be applied to refrigerators and not automobiles but I do think some race cars like these two look good in white.

  19. Love these super stockers!

    I built the 62 about 25 years ago. The 62 was a new kit in the 90's, so it was much nicer. the 63 is still the same kit that came out in 63, so the molds have seen better days and it's not as detailed. Also, shouldn't the decals on the tops of the fenders on the 63 say "Aluminum, please DON'T touch"?

    Hey Dan,
    Thanks for feedback. I thought the same thing on the “please touch “decal but my model is actually accurate (at least the left fender that is the complete decal!). This actual car that was auctioned off a few years ago looked like this:
    [​IMG]
    I remember building the original ‘63 kit in ‘63 (darn I’m old....) and remember it as a very accurate kit by those days standards. The body and interior in this latest repop are actually pretty good but the engine and chassis are total garbage. I used the air cleaner from the ‘62 kit and made some silly funky racing headers by grafting on some Evergreen Rod to the stock kit headers:
    [​IMG]
    So many things are inaccurate on this ‘63 kit that I used to build Strickler’s car (the use of an SS coupe with bucket seats, molded-in mufflers and stock exhaust, wrong steel wheels, etc.). My goal was that it look good from several feet away when parked next to the ‘62.

  21. John you are right, as odd as it may seem, the fender decals are correct.

    My buddy always refers to those builds as "3 footers". They look good from 3 feet away. Then there are the "5 footers" that I build. LOL
     
  23. Wow, you guys are so good. 2 Super stockers are so cool. But that garage scene, complete with gross bathroom!! OMG
    Recently started following this guy on the ole' Youtube. He's super talented, has great tips for making easy patina and has a fantastic sense of humor. In this video, he's building a HAMB friendly chopped top Hot Rod. His big Rig truck builds are epic!! Check him out.

    Started this old Model A kit, I scratch built the frame, chopped the top & found a big mopar for it. I can't decide which wheels & tires to use. Love to hear your choices...

    A couple little projects to distract myself from the big ones. I recently got a built '63 Riviera and I wanted it to have the base wheelcovers instead of knockoffs. The only close ones are from the '63 Electra:
    63 electra wheelcovers.jpg
    So I took one of these and very very carefully carved away the seven blades, made a mold, and got this:
    63 riviera wheel cover.jpg

    Then for the longest time I've wanted to make correctly-shaped wheelcovers for the '62 Chrysler; the Jo-Han ones were too flat and the Revell ones were too small. So I cut up a couple Jo-Han covers and made a master (on the left):
    62 chrysler wheelcovers.JPG
    Made two molds and got these:
    62 chrysler resin wheelcovers.JPG
    Big improvement, or at least I think so. :rolleyes:
