Ford_Model_T_altered
This Ford Model T altered was built by John White for an HMCA in-club contest. John scratchbuilt the chassis, the body came from an AMT kit, and most of the rest of the car came from John’s parts box.


VW_Beetle
Dave Sefcik used a Polar Lights VW Beetle to build a replica of his wife’s first car complete with a Massachusetts license plate. He built the model straight from the box and used acrylic craft paint thinned with Pledge Floor Gloss for the finish.


Crown_Victoria_police
C.T. Inman said he likes the look of the Crown Victoria cruisers driven by Alabama state troopers. He added detail to the interior of a Lindberg kit and painted it with Testors paint topped with a clear coat.


1937_Ford_pickup
Gerald Haney likes to give his models names based on what he’s listening to while working on it. He calls this ’37 Ford pickup painted with Createx pearl blue Blue-eyed Floozy. He lowered the front and rear suspensions and built a basswood floor for the bed.


1969_Chevy_Nova
Gunner Taylor’s objective was to build a model of a ratty, ’70s or ’80s street machine, and this version of the Revell ’69 Nova was the result. He scratchbuilt new rear springs and shackles to get the stance just right. The paint is Model Master blue with hairspray used to weather the finish.


Mario_Andretti_Indy_500
Frank Buczolich says being an Andretti fan was the inspiration for building a model of Mario’s 1967 Indy 500 pole winner from a Lance Seller’s resin kit. Frank added seat belts and exhaust clamps. The finish is Tamiya pure white sprayed from a can.


1941_Chevy_pickup
Michael William’s Revell ‘41 Chevy pickup has a radically chopped top, and the cab is channeled over a scratchbuilt frame. Michael also scratchbuilt the bed, fuel tank, and taillights. The engine has aluminum pulleys and is fully detailed. The finish is clear over Testors British green.


1932_Ford_Coupe
Tommy Justus built his Revell ’32 Ford coupe in the style he recalled seeing race at tracks in eastern Tennessee. He scratchbuilt the chassis and installed a Chevy 350 engine. He used Rust-O-leum paints for the finish – dark blue on the body and orange on the chassis.


1979_Dodge_Omni
Seeking to build something different, Dave Huddle combined an MPC ’79 Dodge Omni body with the chassis from a Beretta Pro Street model and an AMT Hemi engine. The decals came from his parts box and the automotive paint from PPG.


1955_Chevy_3100_pickup
After seeing an image of the real truck on Instagram, Jacob Vannardall was inspired to build his own version of an AMT ’55 Chevy 3100. He scratchbuilt the utility bed and ladder racks. The paint is Rust-O-leum “work truck yellow.”  The resin Cummins engine came from Trailer Trash Kustomz.


1958_Pontiac
This beauty started as an AMT 3’n’1 ’58 Pontiac. Vern Heizer cut open the hood and added a custom scoop. The detailed engine came from his parts box. For a better detailed chassis, he used one from a Revell ’58 Chevy. The blood-red paint job is nail polish covered with two-part clear.


Datsun_510
Looking to do something different from the radical race vehicles he usually builds, Jim Hargraves chose a Revell kit to build this replica of Pete Brock’s Datsun 510. The only modification to the body was cutting open the trunk lid. He fully detailed the engine, chassis, and interior.
