81' Buick Regal Stock Car

Postby TAMELESSTGR » Tue Dec 19, 2017 10:28 am

Hello, starting a posting for my first resin body build.

81' Buick Regal from eBay
Artin Stock car Chassis and Wheels/Tires

Trimmed up body last night
Narrowed front and rear axles for tucked wheels
Couple thoughts on a "Sailor Jerry" theme that I would print waterslide decals

Need to determine if I want to put lexan in for front and rear window, or possibly just paint the resin that is there, it looks pretty good to me??
Also need to figure out how to mount the chassis to some posts or maybe a block of wood??

Looking good sir.

I made a mold for fantasy short track version.

I used thick plastic or wood for side pan mounts.

If you are interested, here is the thread with the entire build HERE

And we have a "Body Shop" forum for resin molding HERE

Any tips for getting the lexan window to conform? Can it be heated and bent slightly?

I use old soda 2 liter bottles. I cut and trim the shape I need. With the preformed curvatures, it makes it easier for me.

Yes, not sure how well they are going to workout, may need to replace them. Hope to get back on this soon, just ordered my waterslide sheets.
