MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I can't figure out how the motor mounts to the frame. The instructions show it going in from the top but the frame is too tight and the from the bottom it's too low and too tight. Help please
  2. Thanks everyone. I've got to find some decals to get it closer to the 1/1. I set it aside because it didn't come as close as I hoped when I started it.
  3. That would be too neat. I talked to you a bit at Kulpmont and saw the car at another show and took more pictures of it. I shocked at both shows because my Fiero got a trophy at both shows. Maybe your my good luck talisman. I tried to do the white parts of the car but I'm no good at masking. Anyway you have a nice ride.
  4. Thanks to all for the nice comments. Cuba_13, I'm not sure why I didn't wire it. Hemi's are pretty easy to wire. I might have been out of pre-wired sets.
  5. Thanks. I found that paint plus a blue shade from Boyds at and old time general store in Quakertown PA.
  6. I can' believe I screwed the fenders up like that and didn't notice it! I really impressed myself on the blue one, but I love that type of drag car. it's one of a few I got to come out better than I thought it would. Considering it was a junk yard body and a parts pack motor it went together sweet.
  7. Thanks. That would look nice, but I don't have any.
  8. Thanks Misha. It took more time that the pictures indicate because I was a little slow posting pictures. I'm working on the stock version of the two cars now. and when I finish that one I think I'll start a thread to show all of them.
  9. The custom build is done. It's box stock except for a little bigger tires on the rear. Body color id Boyds Dusty Rose Pearl, and the frame and engine are Testors Metallic Gold. I also posed it with another 25 I did a year or so ago using a lot of scrap parts plus the body I found in my attic from a previous owner.
  10. I started the stock model while I was waiting for some paint to dry. I was going to do the roadster, but but after watching Keven Costners movie about Bonnie and Clyde, a hardtop caught my eye so I went that way.
  11. Almost done. I'll post some finished pictures tomorrow.
  12. When I did mine I used two bucket seats instead of the kit seat so I could remove the body to show the inside.
