MCM Regular

MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. These were restored last year. They run pretty good.
  2. Yes, Chassis to interior fit had to be ground in areas, hood fit, other minor fit issues.
  3. They are pad printed from the factory.
  4. I hope this is the right forum for this guy. Love building these old Tom Daniel kits! Box stock
  5. 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
  6. I have found that it's best to not clear coat molotow.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Got another rainy day build done. So much fun doing these old kits from when I was a kid!
