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…

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…
