Model Kits

I just bought a kit and didn't see where it belonged here, so starting this thread. Collectors wanting to show their stuff, built or in box, and builders can share their work. I've only been collecting for years, not building, but do have kits to build in the future.

I found this one and had to have it for it's uniqueness (no one else every offered it) as well as being vintage. Lindy usually offered stuff I wasn't interested in, but their quality was great. Check this thing out... Chevrolet!!

I just wish it was 1/25 and not 1/32

Re: Model Kits

Nice .I think Lindberg used to make 1/64th scale cars I bought as a kid. I'd put aluminum wheels with rubber tires off of H/O cars on them to customize them. I have an AMT 1/25th scale I built back in the '90s to match my truck at the time. I bought another at a swap meet last year. I also have a '72 Blazer to be built still.

Re: Model Kits

Nice job! I did that Thunderbolt Blazer kit to look like the dark green Blazer I had. Lindenberg did do the 1/64th scale. They did a '72 with a camper, among other things. This one is 1/43rd...oh well. I was hoping for 1/25th so I could street rod it from other kits.

Re: Model Kits

I'm a model builder. I collect kits more nowadays, because I've learned to buy *now* because it may disappear.*

I'll start off with what I built. This is the AMT kit of the '50. AMT screwed up the instructions, shows the driveshaft backwards, the non CV joint is at the front.


I put in a diorama. Title is Up A Creek.



Another diorama, inspired by a Ken Ebberts painting, California Pit Stop. Same AMT kit parked in back, not in the painting, but the Texaco theme was perfect. *Can't get gas station parts now because the guy went out of business.


I have been working on a '50 Chevy Canopy Express, started 2005. I had not been using Flickr for a few years, need to upload new pictures so I can post here.

Re: Model Kits

You built great models, Kurt. I really like the realistic looking patina. You nailed it. I've been collecting but will get into building before it's all over. I need to get some less valuable later issues. I bought the ones that came out around 1990 like 3757 built (and the red GMC Fenderside) but now those I feel are too old to tear into. I probably will build some og those, though, when I get back into it. I also want to build some phantom 67-72 promos... do OEM colors that were never done. There were two colors for each year and I have them all. I used to hate it when other kids would build their kits w/o using a stitch of paint. To me it wall about the painting as much as building. Now here I am wanting to use only the body color to paint everything but the chrome. But that's a promo!

One of my all time favorite kits from when I was young was the original AMT 3 in 1 '49 Ford Club Coupe. Yesterday I went to a swap meet and there one was with a box that looked fantastic. Talk about nostalgia! It has a built car still all together, which is as amazing. The unused decals are slipped into the perfect instructions, the unused chrome pieces are perfect, no fade, and still on the sproul. The rest of the parts in a zip-loc. Got it for $20
