Classic Creations: The 1/25 RC Chevy Caprice

Posted by Jevries on Tuesday, April 23, 2013,



Many years ago I created a series of 1/25 RC Hopper cars using circuit boards of dirt cheap RC toy cars that
proved to be quite effective and lot's of fun.

 


Two 3V relays send the power directly the hopper motor to bypass the rather weak transistors on the 
circuit board. That orange thing connected to the motor is a capacitor to get rid of interference 
with the RC unit.



A cheap micro servo capable of lifting 1.5kg directly connected to a single "cylinder's ram" lifts and lowers the
model lowrider...

1/25 scale Chevy Monte Carlo LS clip part 2

Posted by Jevries on Sunday, May 16, 2010,


After I placed and cut all the tiny pieces of styrene between the horizontal bars I glued small strips on top to give the vertical bars a cleaner look. I created a small silicone mold and casted the grill using Smooth-on 300 urethane resin. Using a pressure pot is a must to make sure all the tiny details will be preserved. The resin copy looks great and it's a the big plus that the result is not a solid resin grill that you find in standard model kits but you can really see thru it.

'87 Monte Carlo LS model kit conversion

Posted by Jevries. on Sunday, May 9, 2010,


The '87 Chevrolet Monte Carlo Luxery Sport (LS) is a pretty popular lowrider model and on my trip to Japan I came across quite a few as well. Where the SS version is more the muscle car the LS features a more elegant looking front clip and has other luxery aspects.

The birth of the Lost Angel '64 Impala part 2

Posted by Jevries on Saturday, February 13, 2010,
After adding all kinds of details like the L.A. script and small winged Lost Angel emblems I had to rush to get this RC Lowrider finished for the Tokyo Lowrider show in Japan. I cleared the body and left it to dry on the central heater covered by a plastic container speeding up the process.

 
 
 
 
Two days later I was sanding and polishing the body, wrapped it in a soft cloth and in my suitcase of to Japan.
Lowriding in Japan is still going strong and the quality of the rides is amazing to say the...
