    The next one I build will have the front clip glued to the body and not much done to the engine.

    If you want to do one right just get the Revell Stone,Woods & Cook version,way more easier.

    I do both but mainly spray cans.Tamiya,Testors One Coat colors.I have 4 airbrushes to go to when I feel the urge and lately I'm feeling like jumping right in,I have a lot of cool colors that are offered in jar paint than spray cans,it's the clean up of the airbrush I don't look forward to but also realize it's a must to maintain

    It's not my build, so I can't take credit for it.... I haven't touched a model since '74.....

    Current project: Turning 3 1/2 gluebomb Revell '62 Chrysler Newport convertibles into two good ones.
    Started with this, traded with a friend - second issue molded in translucent purple Metalflake:
    P1140075.JPG
    Then got this first issue tan heap to strip for stock wheels and engine parts:
    62 chrysler newport 1.jpg
    Then found this NOS body (broken w/s frame but almost all the pieces were there), and realized I could use it to fix the parts car:
    62 chrysler body 1.jpg
    But I still needed a top boot, and one taillight had gone AWOL, so I got this junker:
    62 chrysler parts 1.jpg
    So from all these, here's where I am now:
    IMG_0299.JPG
    The tan one will be stock, with Torqueflite and modified valve covers from the MPC '65 Dodge, and a correct Jo-Han air cleaner.
    IMG_0295.JPG
    The purple one will be a mild custom, with resin-cast copies of the other car's Torqueflite, valve covers, and exhaust manifolds, and some Jo-Han bits to finish the engine. Wish me luck...

    The heat wave we have had this week has made me hide out in my hobby room in the garage soaking up the A/C. I dug out a few of my old built 40 Fords and have been spiffing them up a little. They were all built when I was about 10 or 11(61-62) from original issue kits. I will share some pictures when I get them done.

    You guys do awesome work.I'm impressed. I have parkinsons and all i can do is scratch my ear.
    Are there any model of the 64 Fairlane? I had one 30 yrs ago. It was a hard top. Stripped it down and ran the rest of it's life in primer. I also installed a 63 Fairlane grill. A very important car to me.

    Thanks,

    jim

    Jim, I built this '64 Fairlane back around 1991, it's still one of my faves.

    Thanks . Nice build.
    About 15 yrs ago I passed on a 64 post car. Still kick myself.
    I have been a eng builder for years, and would have put in a 351 w with an aod trans.

    Finished a '56 Ford started long ago. I've been finishing up the old Revell models I started on and side-lined because of bad fitting parts and really poorly molded sprues of parts.

  29. toy12.jpg toy2.jpg toy3.jpg toy4.jpg toy5.jpg toy6done.jpg Welp, my latest effort is not a model, it;s an old 40s Wyandotte toy. I think they refer to it as a Nash. I found it at a garage sale. It originally was painted red. I looked it up on the net to find they're generally for sale for about 90-95 bucks with no takers.
    I took the wooden wheels off it and removed the grill/headlight assy and gave it a 1 day CLR bath. Came out great so I cut out wheel well openings with tin snips and gaave it a coat of variprime and after massaging the wheelwell cutouts I painted it and got into my 1/25th stash of wheels and tires for a set of bigs and little Americans. It's a true slammer with no interior, chassis [glued the wheels to the body]. Fun! toy2.jpg toy3.jpg toy4.jpg toy5.jpg toy6done.jpg
