The Bench – December 2015

Having wrapped up a few projects, I started attacking the VW bus. I started that project in 2007 and having figured out how I wanted to paint it, I really wanted to hammer it out. For the most part, the paint work was going well until a mishap to the…

1955 Ford Rat F100 – Monogram

Here is a truck that started out life as a parts donor. My friend Greg bought it for the the wheels for another project. I believe this happened in 2000 or 2001. He let me keep the rest of the kit. Shortly after, I used the hood to test paint compatibility.…

The Bench – November 2015

I’m happy to say that I’ve been fairly productive this month! I was able to finish the ’65 Corvette and 928 Porsche projects.  I was made progress on the ’68 Corvette. I finished detailing the engine including plug wires as well as set the ride height and attach the suspension. Wrapping…

Porsche 928 – Gunze Sangyo

Gunze Sangyo? Prior to buying this kit, I had never heard of this brand. I was looking through eBay for loose model wheels and this kit, along with another Porsche 928 (also made by an unfamiliar brand), popped up.  Other than missing wheels and tires, this was a complete kit (the…

The Bench – October 2015

Bringing projects closer to completion always motivates me to work harder! Having finished sanding and polishing the ’65 Vette, S15, WRX and 928, I was able to focus on detail work. Trim was painted, windows painted and installed, as well as headlight and tail lights detailed painted. I also realized…

Subaru WRX STi – Tamiya

I’m hoping to tear through this kit quickly.  It is a simple curb side kit with the only real challenge being the detail work necessary to finish the chassis.  My plan is to sit down with this kit, come up with a plan of attack and focus on getting it…

Nissan S15 Silvia – Aoshima

I bought this kit to compliment the S13 and S14 kits I’ve already built. Since this model was a curb-side, I knew I could finish it quickly.  I would have preferred to build this as a more subtle version of the car without the ground effects. Alas, the kit did…

The Bench – September 2015

With most of the paint work complete on the WRX, 928, S15 and ’65 Vette, I focused on sanding and polishing. I also continued working on detail parts for most of the active projects. I made a great deal of progress on the 928 bringing it closer to a finished…

The Bench – July 2015

Knowing that I have limited time to work on projects, I try to plan work that can be completed in short bursts. I will prepare a stash of parts that need to be to be sprayed the same color. It may take me a day or two to have them ready,…

The Bench – June 2015

After I stripped the paint on the ’70 roadrunner in February, I really lost the drive to work on any projects. Still, I was feeling the draw and finally got back into it at the end of May. I decided to push myself to work on the 928.  I started…

The Bench – January 2015

The beginning of the year usually follows my push in December to finish projects.  I develop a momentum and try to keep it going as long as I can.  After wrapping up a few reworks in December, I dug back into my long running projects. The 928 and Hemi charger…
