MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Thanks for the comments! I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. For all of it's shortfalls, it's still a great old kit.
  2. I Dug this out of the collection of builts that never got put into a display cabinet, intending to clean the dust off and put it on a shelf. Built some 25+ years ago, I felt it deserved a little more love than the silver-painted trim allowed for. Foiled it, polished of a dust nib or two, swapped in some whitewalls, and gave it a good scrubbing. Comments always welcome.
  3. Thanks. I searched and came up with virtually nothing... Looks like a fun build!
  4. This was in a big box of mid-seventies stuff I picked up this summer... I'm not quite sure what to think of the box contents, but the box art is kind of cool. There was a Gluebomb Maverick body in the pile that actually doesn't look too bad, proportion-wise.
  5. Has anyone ever built one of these? I picked this up along with a pile of unbuilt and built kits from the mid-seventies. Not my cup of tea, but it might be good for a slump buster... ?
  6. I plan on using one of the many '70 Coronet kits I have for most everything. I've one or two Revell Chargers for donors if need be. I may take you up on that grill. If a PM lands in your in-box marked "grill", it'll be from moi. Thank you for the offer!
  7. I ordered the interior from Ed a week or so ago. He said it would be a bit of a wait before he could ship it, but it's ok: his stuff is worth the wait time. I also picked up a '68 Coronet body that he repaired, along with one of his resin hoods.
  8. Digging through the multiple boxes of parts that came with the AMX, I found the headers and 1 exhaust pipe. The original Mini-lites are not to be found, but I did come across some Fireball Mini-lites that I forgot having... and those velocity stacks came off the grill without leaving a mark.
  9. I know! When I first looked at what the seller had, they were all just tossed into boxes. He asked which ones I was interested in and I said "I've got $80, how far will that get me?" He said "Take all of them!" There were a bunch of transports and trailers in with them. I sold those to a friend for $40. A lot of the GBs are parts-only, but there are a few that are worthwhile, like a '72 Javelin AMX Trans-Am racer, the L A Dart, a 70's Ventura, BRE Datsun... I feel pretty lucky.
  10. Lots of good info. Thanks a bunch! When I spotted it in the box, I kind of got a little tingly. It might be a bit before I get to re-doing it, but it's destined to live as a Trans-Am race car.
  11. I picked this Chevelle up a couple weeks ago. Lucked into it, as I got the pictured L A Dart, quite a few built gluebombs, a few decent built-ups, and a pile of parts and tires, all for $40 CDN. The body has a warp to it, but the kit is opened, un-built and complete. I'm happy for this thread. I was sort of wondering if I wanted to build it or not. I do now!
