Bob Hall Awesome ! Way to give Walt a Plug too ! LOL !!!!!!!!!!!

Nigel Chapman Looks good. How did it end up in the store ?
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.

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

Bill Newcomer I like the screenshot background concept. I may attempt it for my "Jack Reacher" Chevelle. (Though I have never seen the movie)

Peter Hardy Well let me be the first to congratulate you! Might have taken a while Tim but time well spent. Looks fantastic.
7. July, 22:03
Tim Heimer I thank you kindly! It turned out as good as I hoped it would.
8. July, 14:28
Tom ... Exceptional build, Tim. Looks super sharp! Love it.
8. July, 15:30
Nigel Chapman Model building and electronic wizardry, is there anything you cannot do Tim ?
8. July, 15:40
Tim Heimer Thank you Tom and Nigel. Nigel you're too kind, as there are many things I haven't been able to do as well as some things you have done.

Martin Oostrom I'm still trying to decide whether picture 1 is the real car or Tim's finished model. The guy is soooo good, it could be his model, right?

25. June, 08:30
Tim Heimer Jd....LOL! Martin're too kind. My work is only as good as many others here. Peter ... the car does draw you in, I still remember the awe of it when I first saw it! And now 34yrs later I get to build one! Damn I'm old! LOL
26. June, 03:31
Nigel Chapman That looks fantastic. Love your mini Stallone. Are going to do a mini Diorama?
28. June, 09:15
Tim Heimer 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.

Tim Heimer Hope to post some pics tomorrow. So far filled and sanded front marker lights, carved gas door on rear fender. Kit has no door handles, which I'm making, same with side mirrors and scoop. already modified engine as best as possible from a distant pic. 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.

wilky 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
23. April, 04:57
23. April, 05:17
Tim Heimer 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.
23. April, 14:22
Tim Heimer Nathan, I'm still working on how to do the dispenser! LOL

Tim Heimer 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.

Nigel Chapman 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

Tim Heimer 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
Tim Heimer 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.

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

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 Although there is a debate on weather it was Citron yella or Sublime green.
16. July 2019, 04:14

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 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.

11. May 2019, 21:41
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!

20. March 2017, 00:43
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?
20. March 2017, 00:44
Tim Heimer Guilty as charged on the prop bending with heat! LOL Made the seat belts from tan twist ties too! Shhh. Thank you for the compliment, Glad you enjoyed it!

11. February 2018, 13:22
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.

Tim Heimer And another car buff that knows his stuff! I threw this up for our Mopar nut for a tease!
26. July 2019, 12:51
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, 14:04
Munkyslut You have great taste in plastic Tim ;)
26. July 2019, 14:06
Tim Heimer If I did the fire scene ….it would only last for a few minutes! LOL
26. July 2019, 14:50
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.
26. July 2019, 17:22
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, 17:41
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, 18:44
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, 23:28
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.

25. July 2019, 18:24
Tim Heimer Munky you're pushing it! LOL
25. July 2019, 18:46
Munkyslut Haha! Looks the bizzo anyway, trunk & trunk lid are awesome details ;)
25. July 2019, 19:14
Tim Heimer The side mirrors aren't stock either.
25. July 2019, 22:43
Munkyslut They are 72-74 only mirrors, the base is slightly longer ;) Same for E bodies
25. July 2019, 23:00
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, 00:30
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, 00:32
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, 09:04
Bill Newcomer Tim, I like the detail you are putting into it.
28. July 2019, 22:32
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

Project: Which movie car is this?
26. July 2019, 00:39
Chris Parsons Hmmmmm 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, 04:12
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!

Tim Heimer Thank you lode. when I went yo that model show a few weeks ago I brought that in to show the guy who makes the cases for me to see and had 3 people who wanted to buy it, especially after I played the sound clip for them.
14. March 2019, 13:46
Dominik Weitzer Well done - with a lot of scretch building!
16. July 2019, 05:54
Munkyslut Excellent work, so much detail & all the more impressive for being mostly scratch built.
Bet it looks incredible on display ;)
16. July 2019, 07:07
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? ;)
