MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. This is just an all around great model! It is just soooo cool! Great job.
  2. Absolutely gorgeous!!
  3. She is a great looking model, Ryan! You are right about it being pretty darn perfect across the board. Paint, stance, interior and engine bay all look great!
  4. She is a looker, no doubt about that! That is just an overall great looking model!
  5. Hi Dave, thanks! Z-Man is Steve Zimmerman. He is known for his tires and wheels. Actually, I think that is all he sells. Anyhow, he is at a lot of the shows I go to and when I saw these outrageously fat tires I just had to buy them. To the best of my knowledge, and somebody please correct me if I am wrong, Z only sells on FB. His stuff is gorgeous! Yes, I believe my particular set of tires and wheels are resin.
  6. Once again let me say thank you to you guys for all of the nice comments! I certainly do appreciate them and they always put a smile on my face!
  7. Just to add to this, I picked up a 442 this weekend from the same place that James / niteowl7710 did. We were both at the same model contest. I bought mine very early, first thing actually, in the morning whereas James bought his later. My kit was fine. The only explanation that I could come up with is that my kit came from a different case. This vendor definitely had two cases of these kits and was selling these things like hotcakes. Maybe my case sold out and James got his from the other case? But that does not explain why the ones at the store were also bad. Maybe I was just lucky?
  8. I’ll be darned. I honestly don’t know much about this kit’s history but if it helps, mine is the 1994 issue. On my WIP thread I posted a picture of the kit contents. My wheels were chromed which was not correct. I stripped them and shot them in AK Interactive Xtreme Metal Magnesium, (I believe). Let me try to post that pic again.
  9. Hi Alan, did you mean to say the rear wheels and tires? The fronts are kit parts but the rears are from Z-Man. I just didn’t like the kit supplied ones. Thank you, Don!
  10. Hi David, thanks! The rear wheels and tires are Z-Man items that I've had stashed away for awhile. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who popped in and took a look at my attempt at the Boot Hill Express. Another thank you to those who took the time to comment. I really do appreciate it! There are a couple of mistakes and a whole lot of things that could have been done better but I only had one month to build it. When a mini-vacation and beautiful Fall weather are factored in I really didn't have near as much time to work on it as I had planned.
  11. I participated in a FB group Halloween themed build. I had several models in my stash that would fit the bill. I posted 4 choices and let my friends pick which model I would build. The overwhelming choice was the Boot Hill Express. I had one month in which to build it. The rules stated the kit must not be started which mine wasn't. Please take a moment to look at the build thread here: It will answer questions about the stacks and paint choice and color. I'm happy to answer any questions about the build that you may have. Thanks for looking and Happy Halloween!
  12. Sorry for not replying or updating this thread as often as I should have. The pace that I worked at to meet the deadline didn't really afford me a whole lot of time to stop and take pictures of what I was doing. I am getting ready to post the finished model in the Under Glass section. Thanks to those who followed along!
  13. My wife and I are empty nesters. She has her crafts and TV shows and I have my models. When we get home from work we discuss our day, eat our supper and catch the news. Then it is clean up and take care of this or that. By 8PM I am usually making my way to my hobby room where I will spend a couple of hours each night. I tend to get a few more hours in on the weekends. Like most, I get more bench time in during the Winter months than I do in the Summer.
