What I am about to share with you guys does not have anything to do with how much the wiring, plumbing or even photo-etch detail aid or assist in creating a truly unique replica of a real car but rather the basics and fundamentals of obtaining a professional and clean looking model car. For the purpose of this article, I decided to choose the Revell 1966 Chevy SS 396 Hardtop.

We all have our favourite automotive genres and subjects when it comes to building models and while I consider myself to be pretty versatile, nothing pumps me more than having a Muscle Car on my table as my next project. The newly released Revell Hemi 'Cuda is one of those eagerly awaited kits and one that I just had to build once it became available. The kit offers two different build options, one is a street machine version and the other is a factory stock version. I decided to go with the factory stock version but opted to use different tires and wheels.

This kit is the AMT 34 Ford very modified. When I opened the kit box inmediuately I realized I wanted to make a different car, and using references of real cars, I got this result. The roof was lowered, the door windows were changed, for the nose I used the one from the 37 Ford Delivery. The front grille was scratchbuilt, I placed the exhausts on the side, the fuel fill cap on the fender, all the interior was remade. Many other details can be seen in the pictures. I hope you like it ...!

When my friends Branden and Joan bought an 07 300C a few months ago, I thought it would be a nice surprise for Joan (the primary driver of the car) to present them with a scale replica of their new ride. I worked with Branden to get the information I needed such as color, interior colors and trim. The only limitation I had was that the AMT kit was an 05, not an 07 but the differences are minor so I went with it. During our discussions he said he wanted larger wheels but Joan didn’t. I asked if he wanted me to build a second car to his specifications and like that, I was building two. I then decided I couldn’t build these two cars and ship them off to my friend leaving me with nothing but pictures so I decided I may as well build three and keep one for myself....

When the Revell Dodge Charger SRT8 kit arrived to the model-shops, I had to buy one. However, opening the box, these big wheels and the Lambo-style doors didn't hit my taste very much, I was more looking for a style similar to the former musclecars.

While browsing an online photo album of photos from a custom car event in Paso Robles California, I saw a few shots of this particular 1949 Ford. This really inspired me to finally do something with one of the AMT 1949 Ford kits I had been having for a while. One thing was definite, the top would be chopped, but it would also be lengthened a bit , which I feel gives the car a sleeker look. Another change would be raising the front wheel wells a couple of scale inches. This is an easy way to make the body look less heavy, & once again, a bit more sleek...
