    Here's one I finished recently. I'd realized that I'd never built a Mopar and went to the Hobby store shopping for one. Skipped all the 60's-70's kits and went for the 56 Chrysler. Box stock, except for the wired distributor which you can't really see anyways.

    In the 7-8 years I've been building I've mostly built race cars, but I'm really getting into the stock builds now.

    Yes it is Sunday.....a special day in fact...if your a father, something that I am not...been called a "Mutha" `:;?;% before...but never a father.
    Did get a nice card in the mail from my dog though.
    Anyways ..I see a couple of ya have been hitting the glue and put together a couple of nice builds.
    Of course I have been sorting parts still when Im not working on my Stude.
    Got word that more will be arriving shortly, found this 1/43 Mako Shark kit while digging, forgot I had it.
    Going with the Corvette theme ...I started yet another project from a old broke down concept "Futura" model that was in the parts box.
    Thought I would see what I could build using parts from the parts piles...oh ya the Corvette theme...well the car was missing several parts including a top, dome, so I found a Corvette window piece that will possibly work out for it....with a little modification.
    Ok now...see what happens. 20210620_040433~2.jpg 20210618_130852~2.jpg 20210618_130758~2.jpg 20210618_203015~2.jpg 20210618_215035~2.jpg 20210619_234307~2.jpg 20210619_234332~2.jpg

    I'll be looking forward to seeing the Mako Shark. I'm not familiar
    with that kit. I'm amazed at the money guys want for those downsized
    AMT kits. I had a couple of what I think were '69 type Fairlanes, which
    I sold off, and now have four mini Corvettes left.

  12. Really nice, clean build. Great paint work! Ya know what? I don't think I've ever built a Mopar either! Maybe I need to pick this kit up...

     
  13. I've been on a vintage stock car kick lately, but I think I'm over it for a while after 4 builds. The latest is the Johnny Rutherford 63 Chevy he ran at Daytona. Tamiya paint with Testors wet look clear, color-sanded and rubbed out with 3M Perfect-it. Also pictured is the fleet of stock cars I've built recently.

    As soon as I saw your 58...this one come to mind....remember seeing this one in a magazine years ago....cool. 16242987704398467833904385115602.jpg 16242987480129095858054018521391.jpg

  15. I just started on this BIG (1/12th scale) Corvette. Sprayed a lacquer white base coat to cover the dark red plastic, Duplicolor silver base just sprayed. I will bare metal foil all the chrome, do the hood stripe decal and bury it all in Duplicolor clear. Then color sand and rub. Interior is flat red, and will be foiled and detailed. Engine will be fully wired and have heater hoses, I might do fuel lines, might not. This box stock/factory stock build is nice after doing a bunch of builds with lots of modifications.

    Enamel doesn't dry on vinyl tires so I painted the redlines with acrylic paint, ya know, the stuff Bob Ross used when painting happy little trees.

    After a year-plus my '59 Ranchero is back on the bench! Decided to do a full mockup in primer before final body work, a touch more primer, then paint! 59RancheroMockup1.jpg 59RancheroMockup2.jpg 59RancheroMockup3.jpg 59RancheroMockup4.jpg 59RancheroMockup5.jpg 59RancheroMockup6.jpg 59RancheroMockup7.jpg 59RancheroMockup8.jpg

    Did you buy yours yet? A few months ago I started obsessing over the
    '64 Cutlass ragtop I built as a kid. Remembering asking my grandmother
    to help paint it well (she was an adult with all the answers, right?) and
    wondering what happened to it. Next thing I know, Round 2 announces
    this kit. I don't buy new kits unless something really special to me pops
    up. This year it's been Round 2's 1963 Nova wagon, and now the Cutlass
    convertible with a hardtop coming soon. I've got to support Round 2 in
    hope of their someday releasing '59 and '60 Buicks and other great cars
    from AMT's
    past.

    My next old new project. I bet this has been in my closet for over 25
    years. Started it and then put it away, probably because I didn't want
    to screw up a paint job. It's just too nice a kit to not build, with a
    ton of excess parts.

    Wow - that is freaky - just last night I started gluing the pieces of a Revell Skip's Fiesta Skyliner in anticipation of building a Ranchero . I dug out a gluebombed blue 57 Ranchero which still had the custom grille/bumper assembly and wondered how that would work. Looks like you have done all the hard work already!

    Can you tell me if you cut the roof up and adapt the windshield frame from the Skyliner or did you graft the roof from the 57? I noticed the doors are longer on the 59 than the 57 - is that the case with the real car?

    Beautiful work by the way. So precise and just an awesome stance. I had been thinking Tamiya pearl lime green because I saw a real one on Facebook that colour - now I'm thinking maybe a creamy yellow and white.
    Cheers
    Alan

    Thanks, Alan! This car started as a styrene toy version of PMC's Ranchero promo. The doors are longer on the '59 than the '57 because Revell based their '57 Ranchero on a four-door Country Squire wagon kit, so the doors are incorrect on the '57. On the real '57 Ranchero the door length is the same as the two-door wagon.

    No matter what scale, from 1/25 to full size, the 1963-67 Corvette is a beautifully
    aggressive looking car. I'm sure this one's going to be killer when completed.

    Thanks for that info, John. I wasn't aware of that model before. Funny thing about the door lengths - even though we had 56 style utes in Australia, we never had Rancheros ( or 57/58 style Fords for that matter -they were 56s rehashed with Canadian parts). One distinct design feature of all our utes (except for some mid seventies Falcons) is that they featured 4 door length doors - so the Ranchero never looked odd to me and I will probably leave it as it is. On the other hand, the Revell Skyliner having the longer doors will be perfect for me to do an accurate conversion.

    A few things done on the PACERS fuel altered.

    Upholstery and steering wheel for the cockpit. The styrene 8.75 rear axle is not too accurate, I made one from copper plumbing pipe, brass tubes and sheet.

    Here the seat and wheel;

    -IMG_4111.jpg -IMG_4117.jpg -IMG_4119.jpg

    Now with the 8.75 rearend, probably has to be widened, can't do that until the body sits, later. Driveshaft tunnel done, ride height is established and pinned with studs to keep things level during the build. Here a few new shots, first photo is the real car during the re-build;

    On the bench now is the amazing and exquisite front axle assembly. This one is a killer....

    Mike, it's a kick watching this progress. I'm looking forward to seeing the
    completed chassis and engine assembled, then a photo of the body mounted.

    @quick85, this is a fun project. I correspond often with Scott Snizek, lots of questions come up and he's there to iron it all out. Right now, the front axle assembly is on the bench...and it's a killer! Gonna take a while though. Here a photo by Scott Snizek;

    Lots to do up front. Many thanks, Mike..
