MCM Regular

MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. If it's the same garbage lightbar as in the Galaxie kit, hard pass. The Visibar from the MPC Smokey The Convoy Chaser though, I'd definitely pick up a few.
  2. The Spaulding kits also came with vacuformed clear glass as well as the green.
  3. Figured it had to be Modelhaus, oh well. Thanks for your replies!
  4. As I just got a Jo-Han 1956 Plymouth promo (non-acetate) off the 'Bay, I remembered that these once came in a kit with an aftermarket resin interior. Does anyone know who produced it, and if it's still available for purchase?
  5. Tamiya makes a nice clear red, I use it all the time. Amazon has it for $5.69 with free shipping in the US, I don't know about Canada. https://smile.amazon.com/Enamel-Clear-80027-Tamiya-TAMIYA/dp/B06VTVCL4J/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1YTT0CZD7I97N&dchild=1&keywords=tamiya+clear+red&qid=1610472515&sprefix=tamiya+clea%2Caps%2C212&sr=8-3
  6. "At Fine Scale Modeler, we feature both kinds of models - armor AND aircraft!"
  7. Beverly Hills Cop has this weird scene. Exiting alley.... Out of alley..... ...in pursuit!
  8. Still (mostly) bagged! https://www.ebay.com/itm/RARE-Unused-1960s-RENWAL-Visible-Automobile-Chassis-Model-Kit-1-4-Scale-NR/133411085304?_trkparms=aid%3D333200%26algo%3DCOMP.MBE%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20171011185948%26meid%3Dfacd476a5e34468cac862a2f92f7c0a3%26pid%3D100229%26rk%3D2%26rkt%3D12%26sd%3D392778095808%26itm%3D133411085304%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2053904%26algv%3DItemStripV3%26brand%3DRenwal&_trksid=p2053904.c100229.m3211
  9. Put me down as a Burbank's House of Hobbies fan. I used to go there all the time when I worked in Glendale. I just placed an order with them yesterday. Great service and selection.
  10. https://rangerdetailtechnologies.com/shop/ols/products/la-county-paramedic-wagon-transkit-version-20 I guess they can't use references to the show anymore, so it's harder to search for.
  11. Wow Greg, that's awesome! At least I have the internet which makes research easier.
  12. The interior turned out nice! The kit came with a proper 1972 dashboard, which after a little TLC fit just fine. I added a steering column and some door cranks and other details to the door insides. The bench seat and the radio equipment are out of the parts box. After a test fit of the cab, chassis, and cabinetwork, I got everything to work together. The cab and cabinetwork are now red, and next stop is putting the cab pieces together.
  13. The chassis (so far) has been the most frustrating part. It needed to be lengthened and modified to accommodate the dually wheels. I swapped the wheels and tires in the kit for similar ones from the AMT 1996 Dodge Ram Dually snap kit. The undercarriage is a mess, but I'm not going to drive myself crazy with an area no one is going to see (I don't want them picking up the model anyway).
