The Original Muscle Car – 1:24 Monogram 1964 Pontiac GTO

In early 1963, General Motors' management banned divisions from involvement in auto racing. This followed the 1957 voluntary ban on automobile racing that was instituted by the Automobile Manufacturers Association. By the early 1960s, Pontiac'[...]

1:32 Trumpeter TBF Avenger

About a year ago I added a 1:32 TBF Avenger to my stash thinking it would be something I worked on in the long dark days of winter. It’s a huge carrier-based bird and I wanted to build one. Then the virus & quarantine hit and my wife said, [...]

1:25 John Deere 4440 – Ertl 4430 Conversion

A good friend of mine found this kit at a garage sale for me. While my first 4430 build was the re-packaged 1990s version of the kit this one was the original kit from the 1970s. The inside of the box is stamped OCT 25 1973. Which I though was[...]

1:48 Revell B-25 J Mitchell “Januty Jo”

It’s been awhile since I posted any builds, so I figured I’d add another B-25 to the site. This is my first quarantine build, which has helped keep me sane through this surreal world. The unfortunate thing about his particular plane it that t[...]

Another Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IX

I’m not going to go into a ton of detail on this build since there are hundreds of WIP builds on this bird out there, but to say it’s many mini-kits in one, is an understatement. After some research I chose Johnnie Johnson’s version to replicat[...]

1:25 Revell 1965 Chevrolet Impala SS 396

I haven’t posted any builds for a while now, and I built this 1965 Impala last summer and am just now getting to posting it. I’m glad I did—because my wife gave me a cool, portable light booth for Christmas, so I figured I’d spend some time pl[...]

1:25 Revell 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z-16

It’s said that John DeLorean created the Muscle Car era with the 1964 Pontiac GTO (BTW- building one soon), but friends the 1965 Chevrolet Malibu SS 396 Z-16 kicked the muscle car era into full swing. Read on… Throughout the ’60s, Chevrolet’s[...]

1:25 Revell 1968 “Bullitt” Mustang – iModeler at the Movies Group Build

So anybody who is a car “guy” or cares at all about muscle cars understands when someone mentions the movie “Bullitt”. Many better movies have been made since—BUT NONE—will ever compare to that chase scene. Say what you will, but the facts rem[...]

1:32 Trumpeter P-47D “Wicked Wabbit” – Nose Art Group Build

This will be my final addition to the Nose Art Group build. Thanks again to Jaime Carreon @jetmex for heading up this GB and extending the deadline. I hadn’t planned on building my “Jug” as part of this build, but things just worked out with th[...]

Case VAI – 1:35 Thunder Model

I built this kit before Christmas and it was fun mainly because my dad owned this tractor. Not the VAI, but VAC (row-crop version). My Grandpa always said he would give it to me, but then sold it. He said. "I wasn't going up fast enough to enj[...]
