  1. "GTO by Pontiac....for those who think young!"....... This is my interpretation of a famous "match racer" S/FX super stock drag car from my childhood, Arnie "the Farmer" Beswick's supercharged 1964 Pontiac GTO. Some claim this car is the first "door slammer" to do a 1/4 mile in under 10 seconds (and some say it was some other car....). The base of this build was Revell's excellent 1/24 kit to which I added after-market 1/25 resin front wheels and a Hilborn fly-catcher injector as well as scratch-built headers, some PE linkage and a few odds-and-ends from my spares box. Decals are from S
  2. Here is my RFI of the Moebius 1/25 scale 1961 Pontiac Ventura. This is my forth Moebius car kit and, unlike the previous three which fell together ('55 Chrysler 300, '54 Hudson couple and '65 Plymouth), this one exhibited some pretty challenging fit issues on the front bumper and both front and rear windscreens. The rear window upper frame is still not quite flush with the roof but I'm afraid I'll ruin the paint if I tried to do any additional tuning (I'm still learning the fine art of knowing when to stop particularly near the end of a build). Despite these challenges, this was a fun one to
  3. Another one of my novice builds from 2005 - this time a 1964 Pontiac GTO. Looking back, it's quite a basic kit with a tub interior (rather than seperate side panels) and exhaust molded with the back axle but I do remember it all fitted together well. The only problem I recall was that there were no positive location points or pins for the bumpers, so those needed very careful cementing to avoid damaging the paint on the body. Again, built completely box stock with just a rattle can for the body and brushed enamels for the rest, with sections of window frames cut out as per the instructions
  4. Built in a little over three weeks from opening the box. That isn't me showing-off, it's simply a reflection on how well this wee kit goes together and how much I enjoy the subject - Hey it's a first generation Firebird, what's not to love !! Enough words, here's some photos: Thanks for taking the time to look and/or comment. As ever all criticism, comments and questions are welcome. Next, a refurb... Jeremy Mayfields' '98 Taurus. Ian.
  5. I appreciate that NASCAR projects aren't too plentiful here on Britmodeller, but I thought I'd post my current build anyway: Started this around eight weeks back, it's a typical Revell/Monogram late 1990's kit, with quite soft detail and thick plastic, a generic chassis/cage/suspension and engine, just the bodyshell, transparencies and cowl over the dashboard are unique. So here's where I began: With the air-dam glued in-place and filled/sanded, I sprayed a couple of coats of Xtracolour ADC Grey on the insides, then masked the window appertures and shot a coat of Tamiya acrylic grey prim
