Pictures of HMCA Contest, Indianapolis, May 3

19 April 2014 - 05:24 AM

The Hoosier Model Car Association will be holding it's 34th annual model car contest and swap meet on Saturday May the 3rd,

9am - 4pm.      It will be at the Knights of Columbus hall at 511 E Thompson Rd, in Indy. It's just south of I-465 and right off of US-31.


The theme this year is "50 years of the Mustang".   They will be giving a special hand-made plaque for the best Mustang as well as for all the other special awards. Plus $50.00 to the "Best in Show".


It's always a great show and there's always lots of vendors there from several states.


Admission to the swap meet is $2.00, free for kids under 12.   The contest costs $3.00 for the first model, $1,00 for the rest.  Kids 16 and under only $1.00 each.


Where else can you spend $5 for half a days fun, and get together with your modeling freinds and most likely make some new ones while you're there?


So please come on out, you'll be glad you did!

JoHan 55 Pontiac Conv.

21 September 2013 - 11:17 AM

Here is the JoHan model that I built about a month ago. It seemed most people didn't care for the way the front end sat up so high, and after seeing it on my computer screen, I agreed. So I dug out my Monte Carlo kit and got the low version of the front suspension, replaced the high one, and took some more pictures because I thought you might want to see them.


It's a '55 Pontiac Starchief that I chopped the top off of.  The interior is from a '62 Catalina with a '57 Chevy dash.  

The chassis is an AMT '57 Chevy with a '70 Monte Carlo front clip.

 Paint is Testors lacquer Star Spangled Blue and Pearl White.            


 It's not perfect, but I had fun building it.   


it does sit level, it's just the paper is not level.  and the black lint looking stuff on the trunk is really stuff on my phone.photo-vi.jpgphoto-vi.jpg

So, what do you think? better?  I think so. Thank you all for your constructive criticism.   Roy
