1953 Chevy – Monogram – Rework

I always like they way this project turned out. It was my second custom project, after my ’39 Chevy. From what I remember of the original build, I really struggled with the putty work but in the end, blending the front grill together, frenching the tail and head lights along…

1979 Z28 Camaro – Revell

I originally built this kit some time in the early 90’s. There was a little paint work done with paint markers but otherwise, it was plain. I remember having to repair broken wheels and other miscellaneous issues over the years. I had been eyeballing this kit for a rework for…

1970 Buick GSX – Monogram

I have to start this by saying this isn’t one of my favorite cars. I honestly don’t know why I bought it back in the ’90’s. I tried starting it in 2007 and after grinding off the door handles and painting the chassis, I tossed everything back in the box.…

Opel GT – AMT

The Opel GT was fun car from the 70’s that was an economical and sporty alternative to the muscle cars of the day.  My dad had one of these for a number of years and I wanted to build one for him. I’ve never been a fan of AMT kits…

1969 Pontiac GTO – Monogram

This was a fairly standard build.  I shaved the door handles and smoothed out a few things on the body.  Nothing radical. I opted to do a standard GTO rather than use the Judge decals and wing. This was another kit where I really spent time hand painting the wheels.  I…

1939 Chevy – Monogram

This was a kit that I built in 1996.  It was my first attempt at a “custom”.  I had shaved a bit of trim and in the process, ended up losing the door lines.  I was never really happy with the way it turned out so I decided to rebuild…

1990’s Chevy SS454 Pick-up

Assumed lost, this kit hid in the shadows for a number of years before I accidentally found it.  A friend of mine had started it and managed to leave it behind while working in my shop.  He had chopped the top and started shaving a few details and never got…

1966 Blue Chevy Malibu – Monogram

The original build was completed some time in the early 90’s.  It was before I really started painting.  I used paint markers to do the trim and interior.  It worked, but wasn’t very interesting. Some time ago, I started reworking old models.  This was the first of many.  I don’t…

1969 Camaro – Revell Monogram

For the most part, this is a box stock build.  I chose Testors metallic red for the paint.  I sprayed it over a grey primer and it turned into a slightly pink color. Some time in 2012, I decided that I wanted to completely rework this kit.  I never liked…

1953 Chevy – Monogram

This Chevy was my second attempt at a custom.  I used hobby putty for all of the body work.  The hobby putty was so soft I really struggled to make it look right.  It took me a long time to work through the difficulties, but the final result was excellent. …
