MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Contact them directly, I just made this video two days ago on a body that was painted 2 months ago. This stuff was developed to strip lacquer and to be used on aircraft. It worked and I’ll be purchasing it. This was a sample given to me in order to test it. It works
  2. This stuff works great! Will strip lacquer also just as easy.
  3. I have found that it's best to not clear coat molotow.
  4. I used cheap hobby lobby craft paints and tamiya. The weathering and shadow effects are from a Army Painter Warpaints Quickshade Washes Set. Picked it up on ebay. One of the best "tools" I ever purchased for doing weathering and shading. They are great.
  5. IMG_2451.MOV IMG_2451.MOV These kits are fun even though they require plenty of putty & clean up. I put lightning effect lights and a sound card in it.
  6. Unfortunately no progress. My model shop is disrupted with a furnace replacement. Also I bought an original 1968 Meyers Manx to restore and I've been tearing that down.
  7. After 9 months of not receiving parts , I finally got some progress. Not much but the firewall is assembled and detailed. The washer bottle is a clear bottomless tank. I made a bottom and filled it 1/2 way with blue tinted epoxy to look like it’s got washer fluid in it. Almost all parts in this assembly were detail painted in one way or another.
  8. Got another rainy day build done. So much fun doing these old kits from when I was a kid!
  9. Thanks for the kind words everyone. Merry Christmas! This will be a slow build. My bench is moved for furnace replacement in my basement. I’m limited in what I can build. Plus I just purchased a authentic Meyers Manx buggy to restore. I’m busy busy!!
  10. Thanks everyone! I wanted the 3 pc body to be seamless. I built the interior then assembled it into the body & did the seams, masked then painted it. I would have never done this as a kid!! But these kits are really fun and build up nice
  11. This was another rainy day build. I wanted the 3 pc body to be seamless so I had to build the interior then install it. Then mask it all off for filling & painting. These old Tom Daniel kits are great! Have a blast building them
