Ertl Massey Ferguson 1155 1/25

The crown Jewel of my tractor collection is this Ertl kit from the late 70's. I built it first time when I was just a kid and did a lousy job (I glued the cylinder heads on backwards and ended up cutting them off with a hot knife to fix them!),[...]

Heller Ferguson TE-20 with scratch-built blade

This is the latest edition to my small-but-growing tractor family, Heller's excellent "Little Gray Fergie". This little tractor was an enjoyable kit, lots of detail and no problems in assembly. You can position the front wheels and the hydraul[...]

John Deere 310

This is the latest edition to my tractor collection, Ertl's John Deere 310. As a kid, I always wanted this kit, but never found it in the hobby stores I had available to me. I recently found this original 1975 kit on eBay for reasonable price,[...]

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[...]

John Deere 4430

I grew up on a farm with green tractors, and as kids my school mates and I used to have tug-of-wars over whether John Deere or IH were the better tractors. Sometime around my early teens I built the Ertl Massey-Ferguson 1155 tractor which was a[...]

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[...]

French armored carrier ue

As the French army underwent mechanization in the 1920s, the need arose for a small, tracked armored vehicle capable of transporting supplies and weapons to the front lines and towing light artillery. In October 1930, Renault's armored carrier E[...]

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[...]

2001 Corvette Z06

My most recent Automotive Build was the 2001 Corvette Z06. This kit was almost tossed away in the trash bin, as when I first bought it, I attempted to brush paint it in Metallic Blue Sapphire, which was a disaster to say the least. Then I learn[...]
