1969 Chevy Yenko Camaro, Fast & Furious

Published: September 1, 2016
Company: Revell, Inc.

The model I am reviewing here is one of the cars out of the second movie in the Fast & Furious endeavors.

The story began back in 1967 when Chevy introduced its new pony car for the first time, the Camaro. Finally, in 1969, after Don Yenko had tried to convince them to let him build his idea of the ultimate muscle car those first couple of years, Yenko was able to convince the… more

1957 Chevy Bel Air

Published: April 21, 2016
Company: Round 2 Models

The '57 Bel Air is truly one of the most beloved cars in the history of the automobile. Its unique styling is unmistakable. I was thrilled to be able to have the opportunity to build Round 2's newest creation. It is released under their series of cars entitled "the Car Culture" series. Everything comes molded in white so to me that's a good thing. It has no flash and the entire car is very… more

1955 Ford Panel Truck

Published: September 29, 2015
Company: Revell, Inc.

The 1955 Panel Truck is considered to be a part of the F100 Series that lasted up until 1956. It was a sturdy and reliable vehicle for the blue collar workers of the day. I decided to build a vehicle around the same look, with the custom parts added, to a truck that closely resembled my uncle's truck for his catering and restaurants needs. He meant a lot to me and I was very excited to see… more

1963 Corvette Split Window Coupe

Published: August 15, 2015
Company: Round 2 Models

I was excited for the opportunity to build a truly wonderful American classic. In 1963 the Corvette had a base price of just under $4400. dollars and came in right under $5,000. for the fully loaded sport coupe . This model is one of the best offerings that will be coming out this year in my humble opinion . The car comes with all the accessories to build three different 327 c.i. power plants… more

1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator

Published: February 15, 2015
Company: Round 2 Models

The newest offering of the 1969 Mercury Cougar Eliminator was well worth the effort for the folks at Round 2 to re-release this wonderful kit again. It was a kit that's parts went together very smoothly and without much flash on them.

The real car, when I did my research to build this model came in only four colors. And they were orange, yellow, white, and blue which their actual… more
