MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. The body is still literally like rubber... that soft. So, it's off to the trash. As you said Mark the remainder of the parts I was able to save are styrene and I removed them prior to the super clean bath. So at least I have something to work with in the future.
  2. It was the white I was trying to remove as the green was the mold color. It started to lift the white by the time this happened but it would have taken longer to lift all of it. In hindsight I should have tried ELO (not soaking in it though). Oh well, the remainder of everything is good so maybe someday I'll find a discarded body... preferably not a promo body.
  3. Super Clean and 50's promos don't mix. At least if you forget they're in the pond for any length of time. This one was probably in it a week 🤦‍♂️
  4. To finally be able to put the wraps on my C/10/Winnebago conversions project I found time to finish changing the Greenlight diecast Winnebago trailer to match the colors and striping style on ours. The trailer wasn't identical to our 64 fifteen foot but hey, I was tickled to see something this close available. Rather than the tedious job of masking/painting the red striping I used lacquer thinner (the pic shows ELO but that didn't work) on a rag and gently wiped the original gold striping away and then creating the new striping. I found a package of like 5 different widths of red paper masking tape on Amazon and then created the style of the stripes and "W" we had. Was using tape ideal? Nope but it looks good to me. I also replaced the original wheel/tire combo with silver painted steelies and whitewalls, as we had, and disassembled the trailer to be able to change the colors on the inside as well to those close to what we had. So this project is now in the display case and I'm really happy with it. Thanks for all the nice comments on this build. I'm including one of the only photos of both the truck and trailer that has survived in the past 47 years. I'm sitting with my now 49 year old daughter 😉! The other old pic is of my wife and daughter. I'd posted a similar post to this with pics earlier this week in my 69 base C/10 thread but in the interest of not taking up server space by posting the same pics here I've left them off. If you want to see the final of this project you can look there.
  5. For those interested, I posted my last update on this project in the Under Glass Trucks area. Has the trailer final.

  7. I'll add my 2 cents too.... After years of making my own washes including home brewed acrylics, enamels, Tamiya Panel Line color, and even The Detailer. All have been ok to one extent or another but based on the vote for Vallejo Model Wash earlier in this thread I picked up a bottle of it over the weekend and just gave it a number of tries on various scrap grilles and wheel covers. Super impressed! Flowed really easy and required little or no rebrushing to fill low areas, and it dries nice and dark. This will be my go to from now on. Happy camper 👍
  8. Any help with this one? Looks to be two of each. Thanks!
  9. Can anyone tell me if the AMT 60 Imperial came with chrome taillight bezels to be used with the clear red lenses? Or did the kit just have red lenses? Thanks
  10. A replica build of our 1:1 C/10 we owned in the early 70's to pull our 64 Winnebago trailer. Base color is Folk Art Thicket Green craft acrylic with Tamiya clear. Interior is Folk Art Bark Brown satin craft acrylic. Build progress is in a post in the WIP section. This project is a two step build with the second part trying to replicate the colors on our trailer onto a diecast Greenlight Winnebago that started life with gold trim. Ours had red striping. I'll try and post a short WIP on the trailer as I go along too. I've included a pic of the trailer here after I stripped the gold. Thanks for looking.
