Sorry Spanjaard no video, that's why I took a few pics to show it working. Yes that is the scanner kit, I just used different Leds. I got the leds from https://ebay.com/itm/20pcs-1..used-9V-12V-DC-Pre-Wired-LED

Link seems not to work.....
21. October, 23:12
Tim Heimer
I tested it when I posted but now it doesn't work. Let me find the type I used and I will send another link here.
22. October, 04:53
Tim Heimer
O.k Spanjaard I found and pasted the site, unfortunately they seem to be out of what you'd need/ or what I used. What I used was the 2mm flat top prewired 9- 12V leds. Yes they worked at 3V and up. Note: I used a battery holder for 3AA batteries which equals 4.5V and the circuit board for scanner didn't mind it. Colors I used were 10 red/ 8 for scanner, 2 for dash, 1 yellow in middle of dash and 1 for counsel. 3 clear in dash- 1 on far left, 2 for screens on far right. I hope this helps!

Thanks Bob, and no. The final date of my divorce is in December, plus the hoops of fire I'm trying to jump through for medicare as well as other crap I'm going through! I just had a knee operation 3weeks ago.
15. October, 05:26
Spanjaard
good luck luck with that Tim!
15. October, 07:31
Bob Hall
I know what your going through. I too, Divorced, I don't do Medicare but I have my fights with the VA and I too have had knee surgery after an IED hit my vehicle in Iraq in 2008 on top of the 2 titanium pates and 12 screws in my neck after another IED got me in Afghanistan. I swear the Army doctor that did my knee was last in his class, still hurts like hell to this day ! But keep the faith and keep on modeling on my friend !
15. October, 08:07
Tim Heimer
I thank you guys for your support! Bob, I'm ALMOST in the same shape as you are, My whole neck is fused with rods, lower back has 3 vertebrae fused, both shoulders and both knees have been operated on, and I
was only a forklift mechanic! Sorry to say but at least I had good surgeons. I have a good idea of the pain you feel and am sorry to hear you have to deal with that! It seems modeling is good therapy for many here.

I've not searched yet while I'm in holidays and I've only my mobile. I don't know the kit you use Tim, so why I asked ;)
Thanks for explaining munky. Some movie cars are definitely hard to replicate in scale.
31. July, 07:47
Nigel Chapman
I would not have the patience to replicate a movie vehicle like that, hence I tend to build my own 'plausible' creations. I take my hat off to you Tim for your dedication.
31. July, 13:44
Tim Heimer
Thank you Bob for these great video's! This is the stuff you find while building a kit, but then you have to decide weather you're doing the stunt vehicle or the shows car. The days of thunder, Dirty Mary and Dukes car & Zombieland were the stunt cars I've done, Cobra, S&H, Lucifer and now Elaenor & Fall guy get the show car aspect due to the complexity, Fall guy stunt truck has the engine in the cab for better weight distribution for jumping, Hollywood does make it challenging, in the movie Christine the used Belvederes and Furys for the film, so you do the best you can. Like I just confirmed my suspicion on the mustangs hood, it is recessed in the middle, I wasn't sure if it was just the black paint but it's not. Nicel your own creations end up just as good as these movie cars.
31. July, 15:37

Decision made! After spending 2hrs in trying to correct the hood, which still won't be totally correct and I'm only 1/3rd done and realizing it will take another 8-10 hrs to get it there, as well as working on making the rims, and looking at what it would take to do the wrecked version, I will be doing the car wash scene at the end of the movie.
29. July, 19:33

That it is Nigel! I could no way afford that! I'll be making about the last 6 inches of one with hopefully the first 3 inches of a car in it near the end of it's wash and Eleanor in front dry and ready to go. At least that's what my minds eye says!

Thanks Nigel, and yes, him leaving the supermarket. just using a picture back drop like the Lucifer project.
28. June, 12:30
Tim Heimer
O.k I've done some more research/ remembering and found that I need to add the floor shifter and a tach on the steering column to complete the interior as much as possible, so that's done. As of last night I had some anger management issues after messing up the paint job with only 6 small pieces left to glue, so the completion will now be delayed .
28. June, 12:41
Nigel Chapman
Been there done that, hang in there. How many times have you had to watch the movie ?
28. June, 15:08
Tim Heimer
I haven't yet. Saw it when it came out. Just research online so far, but will take time eventually and watch. Found out a car guy built the 1st car and then Hollywood made 4 more but slightly different, 3 were totaled, 1 stunt car was able to be rebuilt plus the original still exist. Soooo, when I get done it will be the best I can do. There are dozens of slight differences.

Guys, let me know or let Tim know what you think of this. Thought...after making several parts for several of my models I was thinking ( I wonder if anyone else would like to have them?). Then I wondered if others had thought of that too? So my thought is...Having a custom parts/craft category for parts we make and could offer to sell/trade here instead of like Ebay. Put a disclaimer in for SCM to cover your butt and let us work it out. Have categories like scale size, car/truck, military, aircraft, ships, ect. Maybe have a thumbs up or down for possible issues with the transaction. I had seen one site for RC boats that has this and used it to get a custom prop made. Again just a thought.
24. July, 15:59
Nigel Chapman
I would certainly like to see / use something like this but could it be extended to include kit parts / kit custom option parts as well ?

20. July, 04:08
Tim Heimer
I figure you'll take care of Eleanor, although I'm not sure it's the same car as in the original movie. We might have to wait a while until they release Mad Max again ( as far as I know). Hooper car might be a trick putting a rocket in it as well as the car body was altered for the jump car in the movie. There are still a lot of movie cars out there to do! A-team, Rockford files, plenty used in Cannonball run, He's one for you, TJ hooker, Blues brothers, I was even checking out the car used in the ending scene of The warriors. The movie "The car", The Peterbilt used in Duel, and so many more!

I saw this and had to share it, love the bumper sticker! Too funny! Also the original Eleanor was a 73 mustang with Jobber yellow I believe. If I could find that car, the Dio would be it coming out of the car wash! LOL ( the lady's car) not the totaled one.
20. July, 15:54

I did the original Eleanor, it's in my photo albums, There is a German company that made a Shelby GT 500 conversion kit for the Nick Cage version, but it has eluded me for years now.

How was the the AMT kit for the 73, i read some complaints on it. Are the rims the correct ones? Hell you've been into doing movie cars for a while! I went through your albums when we 1st started talking, now looking back! I'm just getting into them now! I like the Phantasm idea!
20. July, 17:23

The AMT kit SUCKED ! but it was the only 73 Mustang other than the MPC and traditionally they are even worse ! They are Ford wheels, they just didn't have the lettering in them.
20. July, 18:53

Thanks! That's what I was afraid of! I guess I'll have to settle as well. This will be added to my movie que.

For what it's worth. A few days ago I messed up my knee, which makes it hard to get around. So I figured that if I started a new kit I could sit and not move very much so I opened the MPC 1/25 Knight rider kit. First thing I notice is that about half the parts were wrapped in flashing and a few of the parts I didn't see at 1st. Then I noticed that out of the 4 wheels/rims one was missing and another one looked like it was melted. As I pushed on I found other pieces that were melted into the flashing, the rear spoiler warped and just very poor quality, not to mention lacking in detail. Needless say I'm not impressed with MPC= Melted Pieces of Crap. Buyers beware! Stay safe everyone.

Ever notice how much more you've learned about the human body than what you knew when you were younger? I should have a MD in my name by now! Now back to models...Since I will be doing the Fall Guy truck and figure I'm thinking of how I might use this crap kit in a dio with it.

The Fall Guy Being a Stuntman by day, How about a movie stunt scene? You have the makings of an interesting diorama
19. July, 20:19

Nigel that's what I'm thinking. Just have to figure out how to work the standing figure of him into it as well as how to do the stunt scene. Go figure!, the only maker a truck close enough to clone is MPC! And I still have to buy a couple of things to do it, for one the bed is too short!LOL

10. July, 22:38
Tim Heimer
Nigel, I had been bringing in my work for a few years. It started with the Jolly Rogers kits, AKA (The pirates of the Caribbean) when they 1st came out, he liked my work on them, then I brought in the 1/16th Dukes of Hazzard Charger and he loved that, and it spent about 6months there. One day last year I walked in and he said he had a project for me and brought out the Nomad kit and told me what he wanted done. So I accepted the challenge and worked with him asking what he envisioned and between the two of us what you see here is the outcome, so the car is his and I have a good friend that is quite helpful.
11. July, 06:23

Brilliant Tim. Any future projects yet ?
11. July, 07:09

Apparently this inspired him to have a model contest for a TV or movie model contest, but because of all the crap happening it may not happen, other than that no. Bob Imho it isn't much a plug due to no one is really in my area.

Going to have to go with 49 dash, 50 is different. no good pics of scoop and how it fades or not at the rear. Stallone is done. still need a back drop of a grocery store.

I'm building some custom slot cars.
I received the most important parts the other day.
The number plates.
Modifying kits would be easier because the worst part is pulling them apart without breaking anything to start modifying.
Movie cars are difficult because firstly you have to search for reference pictures and watch the movie heaps.
I'm doing a car from the 1982 Australian film "Running on Empty" and a car I actually owned at the same time

I never knew a Pacer could draw such attention! LOL. Hoping to post more pics tonight. Wilky, movie cars are a real challenge because they use so many and each one differs slightly from the next! Dukes of Hazzard used 378 cars, the movie Christine used I believe 16. Right now I'm also working on the Mello yello car from Days of thunder, I've counted 6 so far for the movie, plus the one to promote the movie! Best of luck with that.

So continuing on with this Hollywood stuff I'm doing I got this kit. The decals they supply with it are a joke! The kit itself- not too bad. Now, how you paint it is another issue! The show car for the movie has green interior, a redish / cranberry color drivers net and silver wheel rims. The movie has the light gray interior, black drivers net in most of the shots, and black rims in most of the shots as well as minor other details! I've already completed the Dio for it and I'm half way through the build adding the driver as well. will post pics soon as it will be on hold for 2weeks until the decals arrive from over the pond.

Aww dude! My mate has been searching England for one of these Escalades! I was gonna surprise him and bring him one back, from my visit to the states. He loves them, for some curious reason? Great Dio Tim. I like a bit of madness. I must share my other latest build with you guys.

Hey Tim just found this. Only one word for it - Awesome !! Where did the Caddy kit come from ?
1. April, 20:33
Tim Heimer
It's a Revell kit I got from my local hobby shop. If you click on the picture of the model kit in the lower left corner of my album it will send you to a page with the kit # and all the details including who's selling it, with the exception of like Ebay, Amazon, Ect. Hope this helps. I bought the cow catcher off Ebay but it was way to big for this. So big I was able to make 2 of them out of the one. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more help. Tim

Bozzer if he needs anything I'd be glad to help. I've got the nice looking grill parts ect. Front A arms can be a bite, watch out. As far as that video goes, it would've been more impressive if the guy was still rolling or about to take off.
25. February, 04:11
Bozzer
Thanks Tim. He's actually a Scalemate, so I'm sure he'll surface at some point. Thankfully, one of my offspring took up the hobby! He's more of a car guy than a truck guy, but I'm trying to change that ;)
25. February, 16:05

Don't try and change him! He'll be fine and maybe his curiosity will get him into the trucks. You probably started on cars 1st.

Anyone ever have to remove Future off a window and redo it after it dried? while applying my dogs got out and after collecting them I forgot what I was doing prior and by the time I remembered it had mostly dried.
6. March, 03:10
Greg Baker
Not sure I quite understand the problem, but Windex will take off any unneeded Future (as well as paint probably, so be careful). I believe Future itself will also disolve (and incorporate) layers of Future that have already been applied - so you might just be able to pick up where you left off. Usually that makes it hard to build up a thickness of future (i.e. for using it as a filler for small windows). Regardless though, the key is keeping it clean of dust (and fingerprints). So, you might want to buff it a bit with a micro-fibre cloth before reapplying...
6. March, 03:22
Tim Heimer
Thank you Greg, I did try Acrylic paint thinner with no visible results.
6. March, 04:00
Bob Hall
Goo Gone is the Miracle cure all in my arsenal of remedies !
6. March, 04:34
Greg Baker
It's the amonia in Windex that will take off Future. My experience is that acrylic thinner (despite Future being an acrylic) usually doesn't do much.
6. March, 04:35
Treehugger
I am not an expert on this subject but I thought that adding another layer on top of the old one would disturb the layer underneath.
6. March, 10:12

I thank you all for the help! Much appreciated. I'll be giving it a go today and hopefully finish this Charger!

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, 04:07
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, 04:14

"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

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, 13:38

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.
