MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Amazing work, Jason. You have way more skill and patience than me!
  2. Here's a Chevelle wreck in progress that will be added to the salvage yard soon... just a few more details. This was a decently built model I found on eBay. It was coming apart, but all there and priced right. When I took it apart to begin wrecking it, I noticed that it had been built from two kits.... one red, one blue.
  3. Hi yall. I ain't been on here in a while but we're back to 100º afternoons down here in FL, so I've been working on a new salvage yard diorama. Here's one angle of where I am presently...
  4. I guess I'm getting a little carried away with the details, but hey, it's a challenge. Here's one I'm working on now. It was a fairly well-built model I bought on eBay. I've completely disassembled it, and building the wreck from the inside out.
  5. I too was confused. My dioramas are NEVER finished!?
  6. Nice work. I've experimented with small ramps for the lifts in my garage, but never thought about cutting out the floor!
  7. Your details are amazing! I couldn't do that even back in my younger days!
  8. Well, it's been raining like hell here the last few days, so I got back to work on my salvage yard diorama out in the garage. I'm glad there's some racing back on TV so I can have that on while I play with my toys.
  9. Happy Birthday Shambles. Have a good day & stay safe.  Best wishes. hack-n-whack

  10. One caster came off my my rolling table somehow. No way to get it back on without starting over, so I'm back to square... ummm. 3?
  11. Nice work and an interesting subject. I've considered trying my hand at resin casting, but decided my skills ain't up to the task. I love vintage NASCAR and have done a couple of 1-offs. This one is still on my bench and intended to be Buddy Baker's #87
  12. Since I don't go anywhere anymore, and have now seen everything that Netflix has to offer, I'm getting a little more work done on the diorama. Still got some "grass" to glue down, and lots of accessories and figures to add. The yard next to the shop is where we bring the performance cars to remove their engines and other salvageable parts. Then, if there's nothing of value left on the "carcus" they'll go to that crusher back there.
  13. Nicely done. Thats one huge armadillo!
