Classic kit builds this year

Post by Hemimad »

As an avid collector of all things toy related, I had a few duplicates in my kit collection that were either missing small parts or slightly started. During the ‘working from home’ period I broke out a couple as a distraction which started with the MPC 1/16 Cobra that needed a lot of bashing to make into a street Cobra and it was my first attempt at adding detail and making transfers. I then moved on to the 1/12 Blower Bentley again adding extra details such as leather cladding to the body and mesh cover for the blower carbs. More recently I purchased the Monogram Maserati 3500GT from 1978 where someone had started the body and got glue all over it. It took 5 nights to repair and paint in a metallic maroon, probably one of the best paint jobs I’ve ever done. Next project is the MPC Blackbird Trans Am from 1977…

Superb, I LOVE a good kit stash to browse. =P~ =P~
I do wonder if I'll ever build all of mine, some I wouldn't dare open now.

I'm trying to find a 57 Chevy Stepside pick up kit but struggling, got a 55 Cameo but no 57.

Those are some great builds there - Great job on the Blower Bentley which is a hard one to do!
Love the Cobra too - looks mean in that paint and fantastic detail.
