AMT 1:25 1951 Chevy Convertible "Sun Cruiser" Unbox – Build -Review Pt.1

I have never really been a fan of unboxing videos or reviews, most just could be condensed to a few seconds to show what sort of quality the mold is and what the decals look like. I also am not a big fan of the quality of Round2 models overall. Do I sound cranky? well, … Continue reading AMT 1:25 1951 Chevy Convertible "Sun Cruiser" Unbox – Build -Review Pt.1

Revell 1/25 Ford 56 FD-100 Pickup Plastic Model Kit

I posted awhile back about how to build a real wood bed and this is the truck it went in. This is the Chip Foose truck and I had built this kit before in blue and again this time not following the black Foose color scheme.  This is an excellent kit with a very nice detail Roush NASCAR engine in … Continue reading Revell 1/25 Ford 56 FD-100 Pickup Plastic Model Kit

Revell 1/25 ’66 Chevy® Fleetside Pickup

I am sure Jeremy Clarkston would give me a hard time for saying this but I love pickups. I am not talking the giant 4wd tiny penis compensators but the great old classic American Pickup. 40's throughout most of the 70's there were some great simple workhorses made.

I Think I’ll Just Wing It. Pt.6 – Servos 101

Servos. They articulate movements in assembly lines, robots, satellites, radio control, planes, cars, boats, helicopters and about anything you can imagine that needs something moved remotely. The Latin translation is "slave" and that is essentially their function. A Size For Every Application. I have always thought the word Servo sounded like a breakfast cereal.  New Nabisco Serve-O's … Continue reading I Think I’ll Just Wing It. Pt.6 – Servos 101

I Think I’ll Just Wing It. Pt.5

I said when the weather showed promise I would get back to building my RC plane project. (see parts 1-4) Today, I enjoyed some high 70-degree weather and there is a lure of days of sunny weather ahead so I should see some days with still air. I had stated I had a few goals; 4 … Continue reading I Think I’ll Just Wing It. Pt.5

Tamiya B.M.W. R75 WIP

I have always liked the odd vehicles used by the different militaries. The water, transport and supply trucks. The various earth movers used by engineers are all very cool. But I always thought a motorcycle, especially without a sidecar could be a very devious, fast and efficient tool in battle. If that isn't an attraction just watch Steve McQueen … Continue reading Tamiya B.M.W. R75 WIP
