MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Thank you thank you thank you! Today I picked up the old Italeri 540K and thought those wheels are not acceptable. A quick forum search led me to your 540K build, and then this thread. Where would we be without the internet?! I also have the Revell 300 SLR and 300 Mille Miglia kits in my stash for years, but have held off building them because they deserve better wheels than what comes out of the box. I look forward to using your tutorial to make my own set. Thanks again.
  2. Love the attention to detail here Roman, I appreciate the amount of work that has gone into this build. Definitely a labour of love!
  3. Very nice build, great ride height and colour combo.
  4. Love it. I have a couple of these kits in my stash. My wife arrived at our wedding 27 years ago in one - time to replicate that car I think...
  5. Time to fix the inner guards. Have been putting this off for some reason but need to get the chassis painted so I can work on the engine bay.
  6. Cheers David, I have seen the Greenlight models - to be honest they were the trigger for me to look into building my own Thanks Dennis, I appreciate it. A little bit of progress - had a go at weathering the interior. Might be a bit overboard, but I can re-do it quick enough. Base colours were painted with an AMMO/Mig acrylics and then a wash applied. I used a different wash between front and back to see which colour worked better. Wiped the wash off with a damp paper towel, then did a little dry brushing with a lighter colour to highlight for depth. What do you think? Too ratty?
  7. Just wow. Very impressive build, for many reasons - subject, colour, stance, execution. You nailed it.
  8. Great thread, I love the many minor changes that combine to turn a basic kit into something far more precise and impressive. Following!
  9. Thanks for sharing your build link David, it's given me some ideas. I'm kind of torn about how deep into this hole I want to get. Keen to improve on what came in the box, but don't really want to spend a whole lot of time making things better. I will build on the fenderwalls similar to what you did, and I do want to tie them to the body as my front end seems so floppy - it can deflect 2-3mm without much force at all, which doesn't seem right. ANyway, will see where it goes. On the build front - I wasn't happy with my masking work and finish so repainted the black. Settled on the wheel and tyre combo I want to run with, and did a bit of weathering on the engine and interior. Spent a chunk of time on her, but doesn't feel like a whole lot of progress - very annoying but I guess that's what this hobby is sometimes! Thanks for your interest, and here's some pics I hope you might find interesting.
  10. Fantastic, looks great. Also that green streamliner in the background looks interesting. Have you a thread on that you can point me to?
  11. Speaker will eventually reside on this
  12. Thanks again for the kind words fellas. David G - your Monaco looks awesome! Tell me please, how is the dash-to-windscreen fit? Is there a gap on the build, or does it come together nicely? Same with the inner-guards/fenderwalls? The postie bought me some goodies today... I love it when a plan comes together.
  13. HIghlight of the day - a buddy sent me pics of the speaker he modeled and printed for the project. It turned out awesome.
