MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Thanks! I took the spoiler from a '69 Camaro kit I had. Tim
  2. It's been a while since I did anything with the '68 Firebird, but the outside of this one is just about complete. I was able to finish up the headlights and get the glass glued into place today, so I figured I'd take a couple of pics.
  3. Thanks Dan, and everyone else for the comments. I'd love to drive it home as well! The 1:1 is a great car and I am always telling him to sell it to me, but he won't budge. Can a classic Mustang owner own a Camaro as well? lol Thanks! Tim
  4. I didn't like the way the decals looked, so I painted those stripes on. It was too much of a hassle to attempt to paint that tiny stripe on the outside, so I just left it as is. The carb is a Weber/Edelbrock 1406-ish from Fireball Modelworks. Tim
  5. Thanks for the complements everyone, I really appreciate them. Motivates me to finish another one. Tim
  6. Thank you! I painted the white part flat white and then used a houndstooth decal to get the pattern. I painted over the decal with a flat clear as well. Tim
  7. The first two pics at the 1:1 that belongs to a friend of mine. I modeled it as closely as I could, but not exactly like it. If it was for me, I would have done a lot of things different, but I like the way it turned out. Gravity Colors mixed me a custom GM LeMans Metallic Blue, so it was 1:1 match of the GM factory color. To see the full build album, here is the link: http://public.fotki.com/taaron76/1969-camaro-ss-z28/ I took a lot of pics and didn't want to post all of them in here, but here are a few.
  8. Finished this one up this morning. Posting in "Under Glass". Tim
  9. Almost there... Getting closer to finishing this one up. Just a radiator hose and battery to add to the engine bay and this one will be complete. I'll post more pics this weekend after everything is buttoned up. Tim
  10. Eric, I will have our give that a shot! Thanks for that info!!! Tim
  11. Thanks, guys! Joe - I used super glue on the end of a needle to get it to adhere to the body. I tried a couple of other glues, but couldn't get them to stick. I settled on the super glue, followed up with some acrylic gloss over the top of the them once the glue dried. I also use acrylic gloss to glue the lights in place as well. Tim
  12. It's been a while since I have posted any progress pics on the '69 Camaro build of a friends car, but I finally took some pics tonight to post and share. I am currently re-chroming the bumpers tonight and then I can start buttoning it up. Interior is complete and the exterior is just waiting on the bumpers. Tim
  13. Thanks Joe! BMF later today... Finished up the brake lines, fuel lines and emergency brake cables on the '69 Camaro. Since this is stock build, there wasn't too much to do. There are brake lines on top of the axle like the 1:1, but you can't see them. Part of the problem of doing all the detailing, but not being able to see them... but you know you have to do it.
