MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Cool thanks. But wait, you put plastic in the oven for 3 days?
  2. Very nice model. Are the wheels from the kit or aftermarket?
  3. Good question and I'd be interested to see the responses. Years ago I bought some decal paper, I'll have to dig it out and see what brand, and used it once for the plaid seat inserts for the ZZ Top Ford. The challenge I had is that at home I have inkjet printers. You have to spray the paper with flat or semi gloss clear, let dry, print the decal, let dry, then spray again with mist coats of clear. That stops the ink from running when you dip the paper in water to release the decal. That's quite a bit of work for someone like me with a short attention span. Another problem I ran into with the inkjet is that printing small decals resulted in more dots than a clear image. I believe with a laser printer these are not an issue.
  4. Johan 1961 Cadillac Fleetwood WIP. Sitting on Foose Eldorod wheels and tires and 1st coat of Galloway green firemist.
  5. Thanks for all the replies. I decided to go with the US version. Best price I found was 31.40 on Amazon. Can't wait until it arrives. Thanks
  6. That's putting it lightly. I would say it's false advertising. This is particularly true for the re-release of the Cadillac Escalade where the box art depicts the Escalade ESV.
  7. As Dpate said, a piece of glass is best if using a blade to cut the piece. I put the photo etch on the sticky side of a piece of tape so the cut piece doesn't go flying, never to be seen again.
  8. I love your diorama builds. Always so realistic.
  9. From what I understand, that's why everyone is driving pickups and SUVs. Apparently the profit margin is greater on those types of vehicles than on cars so they just stopped making regular cars and convinced us that we all want and need SUVs and trucks.
