I am really trying to get back into the swing of things but it’s taking longer than I expected. I have been working on this Ford since I got back home and it’s coming along, I have finished the engine and just completed painting the body. The chassis is ready for assembly and I need to start working the interior. What a slacker, get ‘er done dude!
Just getting started on this one, a Buick Grand National (GNX). I have always loved these cars and I was stoked to get the kit a few months back. I am in the very early stages of this build, check back for more updates soon!
I have also been working on and making progress on that ’63 Chevy Corvette. Here are a few pics of that dude. I am just finishing the engine and it will be done, praise Jesus I finished one! haha (well almost!)
I have found the wheels and wide whites that I plan to use on the ’41 Plymouth. Looks pretty good! Also, take a look at that sweet 426 Hemi that I had in my stash, unbuilt, that is also going into this badass hot rod!
What a slacker I am, been a while since I have posted here on the SMK website, thanks for checking in on me and forgive my laziness! Anyway here is something that I have been working on lately!
Been working on this ’41 Plymouth. I shot the body last night using some nail polish that I picked up over Christmas. I will let it gas out a few days and then hit it with some clear. I have some different wheels that I plan on using, the wheels in the picture were just for mockup. I have a cool set that came off the 65 Chevelle Wagon kit from Revell. I think they will look killer! Also, still trying to locate an engine. I am thinking a nice 426 Hemi with a blower would suite this hot rod fine. I know I have a hemi, not sure of the blower, stay tuned! By the way, this kit was a gift from my friend Mike Shanley who brought it into work one day and just gave it to me! Thanks Mike, appreciate that buddy!
I have also been working on this ’63 Corvette. I made a mistake mixing the paint, I mixed two different colors thinking they were the same color. It was nail polish and the brand and the bottle were the same, but one was a metallic green and the other was a crimson red! doooh! Anyway I mixed it up and shot it on the body before I realized what I had done. I now call this car “Deep Purple”!
Check out my Honda Civic Si! Yes I like building imports too, actually I love Japanese cars, Honda’s, Nissan, killer sport cars! Here is the engine just after installation, more pics of the car to come…
Quick mockup of the 65 Ford Fairlane Modified Stocker. Note the black wash on the rims and the newly added two-tone paint! It will really look different when I add the decals, like this clean look too, had to share!
