MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. So a LONG time ago, I started a project of an extended cab Ranger to replicate my 1:1. As many of our projects go stagnant, it went on to the shelf of doom, not to see the light of day for about 20 years. Well, as skills and building materials improve, I resurrected the old codger, finished the roof, made a game plan for the side "glass" and finished the body. I stretched out the chassis, interior pan, and body using two kits, then modified the door panels for the interior using those fake credit cards and strip styrene. Made molds of everything and cast up a few sets. So today I have made visible progress. Lowered the rear suspension, painted some stuff. So I had to check the ride height. I hope to have the drivetrain sorted out soon so I can start with the details. I'm kinda stoked about this one. Hopefully it doesn't take as long as the SVO did! Thanks for looking!
  2. The Venom 180SX paint by Alexander Jurck, built by me.
  3. It is. Airbrush and hand painted details. I am trying to find the YouTube video he posted of the progress.
  4. My good friend, Alexander Jurck, posted he would trade a paint job for a Moebius F100, so I sent the truck and a freshly re-primed 180SX. We decided that VENOM would be the theme, and he did his magic. It is all airbrush and detail painted by hand.
  5. My God has it already been a year+ since I updated this! Well, I'll have to get on it then. Such a huge surprise for those who haven't seen it yet. MAJOR update coming this evening!
  6. Looks great Joe! You going to bring it to Oklahoma and show it off?
  7. That's something from the old speed racer cartoons. Looks amazing! I never knew Shelby and DeTomaso did a project.
  8. I recently picked up the Revell Mad Mudder Blazer kit with the intent to make a slammed C5 Square Body. The problem is the lack of a roof in the kit. 3 questions about it. 1: Does anyone have a roof from an older kit they would allow me to borrow and make a copy of? 2: Does anyone else want a roof for their Mad Mudder? I wouldn't mind making a few to share. 3: does the 2WD Chevy stepside share the same chassis components as the blazer kits?
  9. Looks great so far! Tough kit to build. Good luck! I started one a bazillion years ago and haven't finished it. The windshield frame keeps breaking. I suggest you paint it asap, and put in the windshield to prevent this from happening.
  10. Unfortunately I have nothing to show. I have done a LOT of research, but have no PE tools or chemistry
  11. Great idea! I will definitely be borrowing this! I have also made molds of grills and bezels with lenses moulded in. Then cast the whole part in clear resin, followed by some Molotow Chrome.
  12. I stumbled upon the quick curing of CA with soda or talc on accident. I was using CA as a filler, and tried the powders as a type of aggregate, to "thicken" it up and make it easier to sand and shape when cured. It was a somewhat successful trial, but there's putty and styrene that work better with less mess.
  13. To etch completely through, use no coating. Halfway through, coat one side. To leave impression, coat one side.
