MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. OK, I guess I'll have to try it myself.
  2. Has anyone tried this new paint from Walmart? It's 5 bucks fir a 10 oz. can, and there are a lot of interesting colors.
  3. Throw the instructions away, and wing it. You'll be much better off. It is not a good kit.
  4. Yeah, I only did the bottom half of the engine, and after disassembling most of what I had done, I finally got it to fit (sort of), but if you follow the instructions, it is not going to work. The fact that this is an old kit doesn't fly with me. I've built a lot of AMT's kits, like the 53 Ford PU, 40 Fords, 58 Impala, 59 El Camino, etc. that are a lot older than this worthless kit, and they all fit together great.
  5. Has anyone built this mess of a kit? I'm attempting to build it now, but I'm not sure I'll be able to get through it without tossing it against the wall! I was doing OK, in spite of the poor fitting parts, no mounting points, and insane instructions, but then I got to installing the engine, and it's like they put the wrong engine in the kit. once I did tear apart most of what I had built, and crammed the engine into the frame, the drive shaft is way too long. The front suspension is a nightmare too. I would already tossed it back in the box, and moved on to the next kit, but the two tone paint job on the body looks pretty good. Is it just me, or is this kit really as terrible as I think it is?
  6. Has anyone tried the AMT 67 Chevelle Pro Street chassis with the GTO body?
  7. From the looks of some of the extra parts in this kit (4barrel carb/manifold, traction bars, 4 speed console) it seems like a street machine version might happen in the future. Anybody know if this is a possibility?
  8. So, Hobby Lobby should have them in stock by 2027.
  9. Yeah, I realize that! All you have to do is walk through the store to figure that out. I don't think they give a rat's rear end about car models(or modelers). They are more interested in selling $600 doll houses, and $200 pieces of furniture that look like they came from a yard sale.
  10. I was not talking about the models, but all the other junk that fills the other 99% of the store!
  11. If that's the case, then how are the online stores able to get new kits? If the smaller operations can figure out how to get kits, I think HL should be able to get them too. They don't seem to have any problem keeping the rest of the overpriced BLAH_BLAH_BLAH_BLAH that they sell on the shelves. How much of that stuff comes from other countries, and why are they not having issues?
  12. Did your Jimmy kit have a badly warped roof, like both of the kits that I got at HL?
