Peter Hardy Tim, go outside and roll around in the snow.
23. February at 07:01:39
Tim Heimer Good way to chill out but I can't! It melted! Not very much snow this year, and only 2 sub zero days, a mild winter so far.
23. February at 16:18:34
Munkyslut Same here Tim, been on my bike all over winter it's so mild, I love it ;)
Can't wait to see all the big Mopars done!
23. February at 17:50:27
Tim Heimer I have just been convinced by the hobby shop guy to do the damaged version of this one!
23. February at 20:51:50
Munkyslut F@#K YEAH!!!!

Tim Heimer Again, the pains of trying to do a Hollywood vehicle! I've been doing sooo much model building this week, that when I fart, it smells like either paint or glue! LOL! Hey Bozzer...the hook up thingy?
21. February at 13:09:19
Bozzer Yeah Tim, I ain't forgot about you buddy. Currently dropping off some kits for my son. I'll get the pics and info online, soon as I get back bro.
21. February at 17:14:56
Tim Heimer No problem buddy, you told me to remind you.
21. February at 17:18:56
Peter Hardy Do a right hand conversion and join the Groupbuild Tim!
22. February at 11:53:27
Tim Heimer Hey, at least I'm doing a truck at the same time, and by the time I get my parts from down under there the build will be over! At least it'll have some parts from Australia on it!
22. February at 13:54:44
Martin Oostrom Good enough for me!

Donald Dickson II In on this one.
12. July 2019 at 01:28:07
Tim Heimer LOL Bob! I'm staying out of Texas now that I know you're out there! LOL
12. July 2019 at 01:36:05
Chris Parsons Best... maybe weirdest part was how the charger ran all through the move and turned into a Torino the instant it hit the train!
16. July 2019 at 04:07:28
Tim Heimer Not the pictures I have. I know on Vanishing point when it hit the bulldozers it turn into another car. In fact I read how they did the train scene with pulleys and a cable under the tracks to get the shot. They did screw up and used a 68 for a chase scene. Check this out https://imdb.com/title/tt0071424/trivia?ref_=tt_trv_trv Although there is a debate on weather it was Citron yella or Sublime green.
16. July 2019 at 04:14:55
Bob Hall Yeah ! Vanishing Point it was a Camaro at the end, Not sure about the Torino.
16. July 2019 at 05:46:45
Tim Heimer O.k there's the pic of the train crash, That my friends is a charger.
16. July 2019 at 13:25:19
Tim Heimer O.k added damaged charger pic. Do it, or leave it stock? After doing the Nomad I'm on the fence as to which way to go. Help
21. February at 04:11:45
Munkyslut Considering your success with the 55 I'd say yes go for it!
That would be very cool 8)

29. January at 20:17:06
Tim Heimer The only effort on the decals was cutting that one! After figuring out what they were trying to do with the sides by lining them up with the door jam, then I adjusted the top one. Fyi Now that's the secret!? Alcohol!
29. January at 23:37:39
Dominik Weitzer I had to cut them also on the Roof. they are to wide.
Looks good so far ;)
30. January at 08:01:51
Tim Heimer Hopefully this will be completed in the next 50hrs! I can't wait!
21. February at 02:43:49

12. February at 22:47:42
Tim Heimer I have a picture , me as a kid, about 11yrs old with the Movin on truck! LOL! Tempted to find it and post it.

Tim Heimer I'll find the pic, but no tulips!
13. February at 15:20:30
Tim Heimer "Movin on" to an update. Fyi- the truck shown on the AMT box is almost correct for the 1973 tv show pilot ( In tandem ) ! In the 74 - 76 tv series the truck was a new 74 Kenworth with the larger sleeper and other changes for that year. Just recently someone found 1 of the 4 used for tv and restored it. Now if anyone has any info to confirm which 1 of the 3 rumored colors it was, please let me know. TY

Tim Heimer Much appreciated comments! This project was interrupted by Murphy's law several times that kept causing other issues, hence why I am not %100 happy with it. But the kind words have helped! Thank you! Tom, you are correct on bending plastic!, once you over due it it's gone! The Hobby shop I built it for will start having fun with it today since it's there today on display.
3. February at 16:27:56
Spanjaard it is excellent Tim
5. February at 17:43:11
Chris Greathouse Anyone notice? This is about the only hobby, where the more trashed/smashed/crashed/worn and rusty a project is, the more praise it gets. lol

Mark Boots This is a nice truck to build Tim. Although mine had a lot of flash and the seam line on the roof was a challenge for me for I had to make new rivets because of the sanding (and had no experience in that) I had fun. Hope to see the result some time.
5. February at 13:38:08
Tim Heimer Thanks Mark, I did this one as a kid as well as other AMT trucks so I will revisit a few of them in the next year or two. I still like the AMT trucks better than the Revell ones! I will take a peak at yours for sure.

Tim Heimer Thank you Nathan! The last 2 releases in this series are glow in the dark, the first 3 were not. Now I wait until next year for the last 2 in the series. I forgot to take a pic of the moving arm in the other position! I guess the pirate saying is true! LOL!

Gauge1TrainsDK I think that's a totally awesome diorama! I remember you mentioned it a few days ago, and this is a great, creative build. Did you heat up the props to bend them?

11. February 2018 at 13:22:20
Greg Baker Speaking of inspiring... I see what you mean about the bullet holes. They're spot on for this build. I'm also really impressed with the internal ribbing you've done. I keep thinking I should do that, but my laziness is getting the better of me.

4. August 2019 at 19:20:08
Tim Heimer Thank you for the compliment on this one of a kind project! There has been a lot of custom things on this one so I'm hoping not to disappoint. Also I'm sure munky would agree! I have 3 ,maybe 4 more 1/16's I'm working on at the same time, so don't worry! LOL
4. August 2019 at 19:28:19
Munkyslut Tim's done shitloads of custom mods, some are slight others are a bit epic, great job all round tho ;)

Tim Heimer And another car buff that knows his stuff! I threw this up for our Mopar nut for a tease!
26. July 2019 at 12:51:31
Munkyslut Yeah one of my favourite films, car or not, proper good modern horror movie ;)
The 318 "poly" casting was huge, same size as a big block & in proper demand by purists now.
The dual quad intake option was a bit overkill but they were pretty stout motors, the early Torqueflite transmission was good for stop light drag strip action.
I'd love to see a version built as the 'fire car' that murdered the arsehole Buddy Reperton after destroying his Camaro in the garage fire scene.
26. July 2019 at 14:04:48
Munkyslut You have great taste in plastic Tim ;)
26. July 2019 at 14:06:04
Tim Heimer If I did the fire scene ….it would only last for a few minutes! LOL
26. July 2019 at 14:50:01
Bob Hall Did you ever hear of "Miss Belvedere" a 1957 Plymouth the people of Tulsa OK buried in the ground in 1957 as a time capsule and dug up in 2007 ? Was a failure, but was an interesting story.

https://allpar.com/history/auto-shows/time-capsule.html
26. July 2019 at 17:22:12
Tim Heimer Ya I saw all of that when they dug it up. needless to say...interesting, at least it didn't turn out like the movie Knowing!
26. July 2019 at 17:41:20
Munkyslut I remember that Bob! I was amazed at the absolute shit conditions it was kept in, why not make it watertight, could've been so much more impressive.
26. July 2019 at 18:44:16
James C This is an awesome idea Tim. I love the lighting!

I've read the book several times and even have the movie on VHS and DVD!
While the movie was pretty cool... I just wish it followed the plot line of the book a little closer.
28. July 2019 at 23:10:39
Munkyslut I'm with you all the way James!
The book was brilliant & the film left me a bit underwhelmed to be honest, could've been so much more.....
28. July 2019 at 23:28:11
Tim Heimer I have to admit I never read the book, I think if I had things would've tied in better for me. I did read or see where a lot of things were left on the cutting room floor because of the time issue and that some of it would have helped the movie.

Munkyslut They are 72-74 only mirrors, the base is slightly longer ;) Same for E bodies
25. July 2019 at 23:00:56
Tim Heimer So I did pretty good? It takes me several molds and making several parts to try to get things right. The heads, intake and mirrors took me quite a while, while other things I can copy. I just ordered a 1/16th coil, just to see how close the ones I made were, well I was about 3-4 mm off on length. not bad.
26. July 2019 at 00:30:30
Tim Heimer Just so you know I'm going to use the SE grill and not try to copy that one! LOL I had enough with making the 70 grill for the F&F car.
26. July 2019 at 00:32:29
Munkyslut I had a 71 Charger with the hidden headlight option & the chrome surround is the same.
The quad lights wouldn't be hard for a man of your talents ;)
26. July 2019 at 09:04:08
Bill Newcomer Tim, I like the detail you are putting into it.
28. July 2019 at 22:32:29
Tim Heimer Thanks Bill, I've temporarily put it to the side and now putting time in on the F&F and DMCL cars. I'll get the interiors done on those and maybe a bit more and then I'll get back to this one. Since these kits come with no exhaust that will be oh so much fun! LOL

Chris Parsons Hmmmmm confused....in the movie Christine was a 2 door but a 4 door in the book? This looks to have dual 4's but no valve covers I've ever seen on a Chrysler product. The cluster definitely looks like Christine though.....ya, I agree, Christine
26. July 2019 at 04:12:54
Tim Heimer That's O.K. in the movie they used Belvidere's and Fury's. Valve covers are painted per factory specs, the model came with incorrect intake, carb and air cleaner, so that was modified to fit movie. I also posted a pic of the dash lit up also, hence the wires. Good knowledge on your part!

Dominik Weitzer Well done - with a lot of scretch building!
16. July 2019 at 05:54:29

Bet it looks incredible on display ;)
16. July 2019 at 07:07:06
Slavo Hazucha Very, very nice - a lot of trouble taken, but for a result not seen every other day Great details & work on the base and pose

Now the elongated square box clearly calls for 2 more to join it - a mid-flight & landing diorama sections in the future? ;)

Tim Heimer Again Revell disappoints me with the lack of thought put into this model. They come so close to a great kit and then give up.
27. June 2019 at 14:55:43
Martin Oostrom The blue looks very nice. What are the issues?
29. June 2019 at 13:11:04
Tim Heimer The Decal sheet is grossly inadequate! Engine compartment and exhaust are generically cheesy. It's an o.k kit but I've seen better from Revell.
29. June 2019 at 13:58:16
Munkyslut Good choice of subnet, I'm a massive Mopar E body fan, don't get much better than a 71 Hemi 'Cuda tho.
I see what you mean about the Revell moulding faults tho, that front grille & head light surround just doesn't look right.
29. June 2019 at 16:20:06
Bill Newcomer I agree about the headlight rings. It makes them look like binoculars. If I remember correctly, I installed mine setback some to lessen the effect. 1971 Sublime Hemi Cuda | Album by musclecarfan

Have yet to install rear side windows, antenna, hood pins & wire, and other things. Getting close to finishing.

Chris Greathouse Love the color, I look forward to more pictures :D
1. July 2019 at 21:41:32
Dan C The problem with this kit is that its actually an older Monogram simplified 1/24 (re-boxed as Revell in this case)...… Revell has a Newly tooled 1/25 Cuda that is a lot more accurate.
2. July 2019 at 16:13:52
Tim Heimer I can see how that makes sense!

24. June 2019 at 18:22:34
Tim Heimer I have tried it and need to get back to it. It's going too fast for the set up to where I've had to move things forward 3 times now due to it blowing over at full speed. I have a little more work to do before trying it again. I think I'm going to have find another local lake that's bigger because I run out of room fairly quick.

24. June 2019 at 18:18:38
Tim Heimer These are action models with moving parts, most of them have a moving arm. I have used a spring in it because of the crap one they give you as well as the spring won't dry rot!

Peter Hardy That's bloody terrific Tim! Beard done very well! Looks like a much younger version of yourself on the way to a Pirates and Whores party! Done a very neat job on the skull and x bones too. Good job young man! The next question is do you have any more quieted away?
24. June 2019 at 21:16:20
Martin Oostrom Shouldn't that be a Wench?

What does a Wench do? It's a wrench without the R, it'll squeeze you out of your money!
24. June 2019 at 21:19:13
Tim Heimer Good point martin on the eye issue! I wasn't paying attention to that, too funny they made it that way! Wrenches, wenches!, they both cost money! LOL

Tim Heimer O.k : Progress report. I now know why I have never done a ship! Don't get me wrong the detailing is unlimited!, as long as you have the money! I do not, and couldn't afford the big kits with everything, the PE kit I did get by accident was for the older ship, and is lacking a lot. When I went to buy the correct one it was out of stock, so I had to buy a railing kit from another ship. also from 1987- 1991 the ship went through a lot of changes, some minor, some major. So I'm averaging the changes and doing a lot of scratch building on this, some of it I have taken pics of but not all of them. Having to piece meal the railings is a pain in the ass! I hope to post some pics by the end of the week. Good day to you all!
20. March 2019 at 19:08:44

20. March 2019 at 21:17:44
Tim Heimer Peter, you think? I was hoping to do some ship building, not shit building. LOL! Twice I came close to deep sixing the project but then realized how much money would be going with it!
21. March 2019 at 01:11:10
Tim Heimer No smooth sailing here!
21. March 2019 at 01:11:44

21. March 2019 at 01:16:37
Tim Heimer I should be here! Besides it's been a while since our last chat.
21. March 2019 at 13:25:34
Tim Heimer Captains log: Ship building with PE is like going to church, You sit quietly and pay attention, they you scream out Jesus's name when a piece of PE goes somewhere, you then get on your knees and try to find it as you pray, then you sit back down regardless weather you found it or not. you either thank God, or continue on, then you repeat the process!
25. March 2019 at 02:13:33
