MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. making slow progress on this old Dukes' Charger. I still need to paint and install the engine, and finish up some trim on the body. Hoping to put it on the shelf next week
  2. Thanks for posting. February 1987 issue has the first annual Model Car Contest winners. March '88 and '89 also. also the Caddy Hack which was one of my favorites at the time 😁
  3. Great work. As others have said, the trash is particularly well done. I worked briefly at a Mack dealer, and we had waste trucks in for service often. The mechanics hated working on them because they smelled so, so bad. 😄
  4. Got a shipment from the auction site today. It was an impulse purchase but too good to pass up. Box is open but the bags are sealed and it appears to be complete.
  5. sometimes it's stuff I see on the road, or a replica of a car that belonged to me or a friend/family member, but usually it's just stuff I would want to drive in 1:1
  6. Well done! I had a friend that drove an Escarado. I always thought that was a cool conversion
  7. I generally use masking tape, whether it's the blue stuff from the hardware store or the tamiya fine line. I tried BMF once with not great results. I'm interested to try out the Molotow liquid masking pen I've seen recently
  8. Local Hobby Lobby was restocked with some new stuff, on a 40% off week, but I managed to resist the urge to buy any new kits. Settled for a chrome Gundam marker, since I've been wanting to try it out. Hard to pass on the reissued Supra, but I have an original issue in the stash. Also considered grabbing another prostreet Nova, but I have two already, in addition to the engine stands and blocks I saved from earlier ones I had.
  9. Finished the movie last night. I agree with @Snake45. It was really well done. Obviously there'd been a lot of footage and time invested in telling the story before the unfortunate ending. I don't want to spoil it for anyone that plans to watch but, while it was a sad ending, I liked the way they focused on what Ms. Combs accomplished.
  10. Here are a few I've made just for the shelf. The first two are just wood plaques from the craft store, with glue and sand applied (per the Ken Hamilton technique). I painted a few shades of gray and black on one to look like asphalt, and the other, I added some small rock and diorama grass, along with some stray brush fibers to make weeds. The larger one was an extra shelf from an Ikea cabinet. I painted it black and used plaster to cast the sidewalk. I scored the pattern with an old #11 blade, and then painted the sidewalk with craft paint. The asphalt is just white glue and a couple different colors of sand.
  11. Well done! I bought that Dobbertin kit with the intention of doing the same. But every time I opened the box I had terrible memories of my 1986 Sunbird, so I finally resold the kit. 😄
  12. My neighbor just finished building this Manx knock-off. He’s let me drive it a few times. It ain’t fast but it’s fun!
  13. Well done! I never cared for those Montes in the past, but with that roof, I kinda dig it!
  14. It was yesterday, but here's a 1924 Buffalo hose truck. I talked to the driver at a stop light. It now belongs to a local transportation museum but was originally in service in the FD of a small local community.
