MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. The old Toyota is the only one I saw today, the others have been pretty recent though. The Cougar Eliminator & Torino Cobra were in the same driveway. I've seen the Cougar around before (might have it posted earlier in this thread) but not the Torino. This F250 was amazingly clean, I didn't care for the wheels though, however. This 78ish? Ranchero was in the parking lot at work when I left one day. Someone on night shift owns it, not sure who though.
  2. That is a stunner! That grille is a work of art. Beautiful build, would love to see it again after the couple of missing pieces are added.
  3. Excellent job on adding the extra trim, and the foiling, and the paint, heck the whole thing! You're right this kit is a pretty lackluster but with you're mods and clean building style you made a real looker out of it. Well done!
  4. Great backstory Roger, very cool! Great work on those front fender panel lines, I plan on doing the same on the one's I've got, too. She sure captures that street machine look well from back in the day. Well done! I, too, have fond memories of that old street machine kit as it was probably one of my first five glue kits I ever built, and was my favorite for quite some time.
  5. Wow that color is wonderful! Nice lookin' Boss for sure.
  6. That looks really sharp, black looks so good on these. I wasn't aware of this kit either, might have to keep an eye out for one.
  7. That black is beautiful! Sweet Charger John!
  8. Thanks again my friends!
  9. Thanks guys, even though I didn't do a whole lot to it lol.
  10. That made for one mighty fine looking low rider, well done!
  11. Hey thanks again for all the love guys. Thanks, combining the two kits was pretty easy, thankfully hahaha. I kinda think the same on styling too. I love the Galaxies, but these Merc's really come to life when hot rodded up. Thanks Josh. Going into the build I was torn on colors, it was going to be either this or a gold on gold combo. Think it would have looked sharp that way too.
  12. Felt the need to slam something together without a lot of work so I brought this to the bench this week and cranked it out. Really only did a little paint detailing here and there and called it good. The side mirrors are molded in a light, sorta metallic, gray much lighter than the body, so I shot them with some Tamiya TS42 Gun Metal with a light coat of TS71 Smoke over it for a pretty close match. I love the two toned interior, but the seats were all blue except the centers, the real ones are black along the sides & backs so I painted them accordingly. Some flat clear was sprayed over everything in the interior to knock down the shine, and finally painted the few aluminum trim pieces. The chassis plate is nothing to really show, but did paint up the simplified molded in suspension & exhaust. Same goes for under the hood, though it is a bit more detailed (even though I believe the engine represents as a Z06). Was a fun build and love the looks of it. Some of these Maisto offering make for some pretty good lookers, even with as simple as they are.
  13. That is very well done, congrats.
  14. Nice build Mike! When Sr. died I lost some of my interest in NASCAR too, but kept watching, albeit with a slowly dwindling interest, until the COT came out. I really haven't watched it much since, a few laps here and there throughout the seasons.
  15. I like the outside of the box thinking on this one Ray, all those custom touches really flow well. Another sharp Cobra for your collection.
