Fundimensions means it's an MPC kit. I had a '32 Ford sedan delivery that was an MPC kit and it had Fundimensions on the frame also. Don't really know exactly what it means though. I still have the box to that old kit around here somewhere. That will make a really nice little truck.

cool thanks plowboy! also it does have its share of inaccuracies such as whats holding the rear fenders on or are they just floating?
and little things that i think i can fix oh the last person that put the windsheild in must have been high on some drugs or something cause i pulled the window out and the cowl broke in 3 places it was so soft! lol got it fixed now needs some more work! :lol:

again thanks plowboy! B)

Fundimensions was a name used during the period of time when General Mills Fun Group (GMFG - yes, the cereal people) owned MPC (1970 to the end). Some of the older MPC boxes I have say MPC Fundimensions on the outside. They were big into toys at that time; you'll find a lot of toys (especially Star Wars) marked GMFG or G.M.F.G. I would imagine that 197 7 is the year with the final digit spaced weirdly, probably after the rollover from 1976.

Long story short, it's a 1977 MPC issue. Dunno what kit number or version.

Sean, that's the original, first issue of the kit. Only 2 wheel drive version. All others after were 4X4s.

I have one in the works right now myself but I had to strip it and start over on mine.


AN ORIGINAL!!!! B) B) B) WOW!!! :lol: :)

Pail- REALLY nice job on that Imperial.

Jim- I like the Corvair. Do you happen to have the Dupli-Color number for the paint you used?

Doug- Cool pick with the Sunliner. You even picked a color to match its name!

I've already done the stripping and repaint on the exterior, but I'll get in with a Jo-Han '61 Olds F-85. This car will probably not be "perfect." Honestly, it's a little too far gone for it to be that way.

This car will end up with the look of an older car that's been used, but hasn't been beaten too badly. Yeah, it could used a little freshening, but it's still presentable and solid. Someday, I'd like to grab another one of these and do a factory-fresh (or closer to it) car.

Pictures will developed and up sometime this week.

I'll have to get back to you on that, Charlie. Once I use a spray can, it generally just gets stuck in a box with my other spray cans. I use a marker to write on the bottom of the can what color the can is, but I guess I should also note what model I used it on there too in case I want to use the exact same color again for a diferent project. I know, I ought to be more organized, but I have difficulty with things like that. A dozen or so cans accumulate on my paint table, and then they all go in the box (or back in the box) at the same time. That can should still be near the top of the pile!

I'd like to join in with a built AMT '66 Buick Riviera Lowrider that I got last weekend at a flea market. I'll be rebuilding it G-Machine/Pro Touring style more than likely, starting with this:

Here is my entry into the "Glue Bomb Resto" CBP. It is a combinaton of two cars. I wanted to get finished with it really fast, but my mind kept telling me to go slow. The result is this, my most detailed build to date. BTW, this is my first BMF'ed build! :D My thanks go out to the following people.


Futurabat-Body
diyaramige-windshield (sorry if I spelled your name wrong)
MrScatPack- P/E Charger emblems and Hemi emblems (Still yet to arrive)


Anywho, on to the pictures!

Finally got a chance to give the old '66 Riviera some attention. After a soak & scrub with some Dawn Power Dissolver, all that old blue paint and lowrider decals came off the body and interior. Sanded the body, shot some primer, wet sanded, shot it with primer again and finished it up with a nice coat of DupliColor Perfect Match Toyota Stellar Blue Pearl. Taped off a Camaro style fender stripe on both sides and shot it with GM Platinum Grey Metallic (also Duplicolor Perfect Match). It still needs to be polished out good, and after I add BMF it will be shot with clear and polished again. It will be like glass when I'm done. I'm contemplating adding a platinum stripe to the hood as well, but I'm not sure. I just need to make up my mind about it LOL. The paint is formulated for use on 1:1 cars, so the metallic specs are a bit out of scale and it looks a bit rough or textured in the pics. The orange peel will be taken care of with polishing. I love the Stellar Blue, it is a beautiful dark blue/purple color and once it is finally done I think it will be one of my favorite builds :D

Nice looking cars being done here. I'm liking that blue mb_chargerchick and the blue on that charger Mississippi Resins. It really suits the charger.

Been away from the bench for a while, only got a minor update. Made some mods to the rear window. The top now sits higher and I've trimmed down the sides a bit as well. Stuffed up a panel line for the vent window, so I have to put in more putty and more sanding afterwards. Would love to put this thing in primer soon to see how much more putty and sanding I still have to go.

The engine in the background will be going into this car, but not in those colours. It's from a 93 (ish) corvette.

Well, might one of these work?
Just got them today as part of a trade deal, '62 Lincoln Continental (AMT annual), and Jo-Han '60 Plymouth wagon. The wagon may end up getting 'spliced' with a resin kit I butchered not too long ago.
