Budweiser Race Boat Model Kits


Bud race Ski Boats


Bud Boat


This is an AMT Hemi Hydro kit, with some changes by me.

I changed the Chrysler Hemi engine to a Ford Boss 429 big block. I then used Fred Cady Budweiser decals. This is a good, but simple kit.

The worse part is the front upper deck, which has a nasty seam to be filled and smoothed over. (you can't see it in this build because I fixed it).

The kit includes a trailer. It is painted in Testors Gloss Red.

This is a Monogram Cigarette Boat model kit. I changed / modified the 2 rear molded in engines to be 2 Ford 502 big blocks.

The Budweiser decals are from Fred Cady. The paint is Testors Gloss Red. This is a great kit. Goes together well and displays well.

There are two versions of this kit. One is a Splash Dancer molded in black, the other is a Miami Vice boat molded in white. The Splash Dancer kit has gold trim parts, and the Miami Vice one is chrome.

The engine cover on the back is removable. A stand is provided for display.

  • Hot Rod Pin-ups - For as long as young men have been channeling, chopping, and hopping up rods and customs, women-whether loyal girlfriends or trouble-seeking 'bad girls'-have been integral to the scene. In this unique portfolio evoking great 1950s pin-up artists like Vargas and Elvgren, talented photographer David Perry depicts models in and out of cherry-picked rods and customs and wearing painstakingly chosen period dress and hairstyles. More than 100 photos present these modern-day pin-ups under three themes: Garage, Cruising, and Race. In addition, essays explore each topic and are accompanied by pulp novel covers, period mags, and ads that place the photography in a historical context.
  • High-Speed Boats: The Need for Speed - See what it's like to drive or sail the most powerful boats in the world with this heart-pounding look at high-speed watercraft. Strap yourself into the cockpit of a powerboat, as you blast through deadly waves at more than 150 mph. Brave the world's roughest waters and strongest winds in a tough and powerful ocean racer. Or let someone else do the driving as you relax in luxury aboard the amazing Predator motor yacht. Get the facts and figures behind these incredible machines and feel the excitement of extreme sailing.
  • Finishing Scale Ship Models: Detailing And Painting Techniques - As every modeler knows, one of the most difficult aspects of ship modeling is the painting and fine detailing. According to the author of this book, Tom Gorman, who is one of the most highly respected modelers in the profession, it’s what separates the good from the "also ran." For those struggling to put the final touches on their scale ship models, this new manual will come as a godsend. Profusely illustrated in both color and black and white, the book first takes on the painting of models, outlining techniques for both wood and plastic and then addressing the different approaches needed for hulls and superstructures, decks and fittings. He describes all the equipment needed and tells how to prepare the surfaces and apply the sealing and priming coats, and explains brushwork, spraying, air-brushing, and varnishing. The second part of the book deals with the fittings and explains how to make lifeboats, rafts, and carley floats, and tells how to make all the deck machinery and hull fittings, funnels and masts, as well as anchors and bollards, among other things. Whether you are a modeler aspiring to competition status or at the early stage of your career, the wealth of practical information provided in this manual will help transform your model to the highest standards and should find a place on every modeler’s workbench.
