Show Us Your Buick Scale Models

Recommended Posts

I built many models in my youth but only a few Buicks. Here are a few outtakes of the Buicks I built. If you want to see all of them just send me a PM and I will send you the link. Mud

Aidan’s Garage. 

Well it started when I bought a 1965 Buick Riviera in 1/24 scale by Maisto. It was the red version with black vinyl roof, second hand at a swap meet. I showed it to grandson Aidan on a Skype chat as he lives in Manchester in England.

 

Well not long after, we get the email photo with Aidan and you guessed it, his own 65 Buick Riviera. It planted the seed that he needed a 1/24 scale garage to put it in, to service it, add fuel and air up those tyres. 

 

So I set about making Aidan’s Garage, as a flat pack so we can take it over to him soon and help him put it together. And yep, he will get to keep the silver Riviera as well. Just a few photos.

 

Now, if only I could find him a ‘63 Riviera like my real one!

And here it is, set back up in the UK, with his red ‘65 and the ‘53 Skylark we found in Hamleys Toy Store. And the silver ‘65 I bought over with the garage. Aidan will be getting some Buick fun on a big scale (1/24). Just need to find some scale people! 😎😎😎😎

I brought this model back out to sit on my shelf for awhile in my newly remodelled computer (Buick) room.

Using Daylight Savings Time change as my excuse (and I'm sticking to that...😉) I changed out the Limited two door for the Wells Fargo model.

It even has the steer head on the hood centre chrome.

All in all a nicely done model of the original which by the way, still exists.

Hello, since a moment of research a miniature model (scale) a Buick Electra 225 1969, but I can not find.
I search a lot on the internet but I never find it. Do you know if this model exists in sclale?
Thank you :)

AMT made a 1969 Buick Wildcat Kit in 1/25th scale and I'm pretty sure there were '69 Riviera Promotional models.   I don't know of any 1/25th scale Electra 225's.     Jim Smith  BCA #3566

Thank you for the information ;) 
I think I would not have the choice to have it made with a 3D printer if I can't find :/
