  3. This won't compare with most of your builds, but I banged it up so I have a constant motivation in front of me of my full size 54 Ford build. It's a Welly diecast 53, it was kind of wierd to work toward a crap paint finish if you know what I mean. It's nothing flash but it is providing inspiration, and has also had me digging out some old kits and tinkering with them too.

  6. I never thought of the '37 as much of a "chick magnet" before - but.. Cool diorama! That bike looks pretty slick too!

    Early 60s Monogram 34 Ford I picked up but missing some parts,might have found most of the parts but have picked up the 90s 33 chopped top version for the chassis and everything except for the hood if the original parts deal does not happen.

    I like the look of your 32 quick85.....so I will keep the 32 theme going with this one ... I have actually had this one for several years I also have a vintage slot motor kit that would fit it, and a very large old Elden slot car track set up, but I haven't been able to get myself to assemble the kit yet.....some day...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

  17. Here's a couple '40 Ford coupes I picked up from eBay. The black one is a early AMT gluebomb survivor and the red one is a Revell Standard coupe.

The El Camino's I did as a pair, one stock and one 4 wheel drive, did I ever mention that I love 4 wheel drive trucks. The Corvette is an early AMT kit I did for the friend who gave me the Big T kit to match his real car. 20171117_075057.jpg

    Thank you Deuces, I built it box stock, all I did was clear the body and paint the engine and interior. Amazingly enough it was only missing a few odds and ends.

    Rudestude, thanks for your comment. Somehow I was able to get mine through ebay a few months
    ago, and for only ten dollars. I swore if I won the auction I was going to build it. I lucked out, it was missing only the soft top and the windshield. I wasn't going to stuff it on a shelf and wait to make a killing on it. Now if I could only get the '59 Buick I want so badly...

    Ditto!! Right after they came out, I hinted and hinted, and begged, for my folks to get me one for my birthday. While it pretty much looked like the box top when done, it had full wiring, plumbing and flex-straw radiator hoses. It had oil in the pan, too, and a working dip stick. I also chopped off the plastic wheel studs and replaced them with miniature 00-80 (or was it 0-72?) machine screws / nuts. Yep, I could remove / change the wheels and tires to alter the look now and then. My eyesight now is even more thankful for anything 1/8th. But the Big T was my first, you never forget your first, eh? It ranks right up there with my first (of many) AMT 1/25 5W Deuce coupe kits. Gary

    I don't have a good close up camera but here are some lousy pictures
    of some fun models I have built over the years.
    IMG_2826R.jpg
    These old AMY 36's are fun and quick to build. They have always
    been easy kit bash (swap parts form other kits) I still have a 3 window
    version to build some day

    IMG_2828R.jpg
    This one is a Revell kit. This one and the convertible are both excellent kits.
    IMG_2829R.jpg IMG_2830R.jpg
    If you like old race cars I highly recommend this kit! I built it box
    stock and it was real fun to build.
    IMG_2832R.jpg
    The Forty Sedan is a build from the sixties updated with new wheels
    and tires from the Revell Model pick up kit. I have always been a fan of
    tear drop trailers. When this Diecast version came out recently I had to
    have one. Although it is 24th scale it still looks cool behind the old 25th
    scale sedan.

    Oh and for you red wheel haters. The fad may have passed but I still like
    them with black cars especially. Have a great Sunday!

    My first one was this one here.. when I got it back in 1971... A week after we landed in the States from the land down under... I discovered music, models and cool cars roaming the streets...:cool: SAM_8891.266144021_std.JPG

  25. quick85 - Your original AMT '32 reminded me of my build of the coupe version. I chopped mine and used parts-box items to customize mine, but I was happy to find the kit in the basement of our old local hobby store around the time that rumours abounded regarding the demise of the tooling (50 years ago?)..!

  26. rudestude - you got me going as well! Several years ago I came across some 1/32 scale kits at a swap meet. Three of my favourite subjects! I couldn't refuse them! Partial glue-bombs, but certainly saveable!

    Those two Pyros and this Palmer:
    IMG_1797.jpg
    IMG_1798.jpg

    I was pleased to find the basic body of the '36 moulded as one piece as my memory in building other Palmer kits was that in those cases it was required to glue the body sides on to the upper body surface. Not very appealing to a kid who was more used to building kits with a full body mould.

    Dave, I'm glad you posted the pics of the Pyro & Palmer cars. I wondered if any were built as one piece
    bodies. I remember seeing some as a kid and knew right away I wanted nothing to do with glueing
    the body together. Of course, now I'd like them just for the box art.
