MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. The original from 1962 has the green & white box. The second issue (1965) has the blue box. The third issue came out in 1968 with a red Mod Rod on the box top. The final issue with the original Ala Kart still intact was in 1970, with a yellow fenderless Mod Rod on the boxtop.
  2. You do reeeeally nice work, Steve. Photography is top notch as well. Gorgeous build.
  3. I agree. Once you see it, you can't unsee it. That's where the Revell SnapTite and the new tool AMT 57s come in. But the olf tool 57 does offer a plethora of cool vintage custom and speed equipment, along a nice pair of Chrome reversed wheels.
  4. Does not, and never had the the rib detail. I wouldn't look for it in future issues either. One nice thing about that though, is that by modifying (shortening) the spear on the top of the fin, you can make a 210 hardtop.
  5. Comparing the two in photos (I've never owned the MPC kit) I'd give the AMT body the edge in accuracy and crispness, but the MPC isn't bad.
  6. Actually it's 2002 tooling. And unfortunately, the cowl, hood and nose are way too square. The wheels are pretty off, too.
  7. Times two. Gentle cleaning, replace missing parts.
  8. Right? And as you can see, there's even a few parts missing off of that original tree probably sitting in the box i pulled it out of.
  9. Conversations with Round2 management indicate it will be a straight re-issue of the previous Pepper Shaker, with the box art of the Gen 1 Pepper Shaker. The box side will be updated to to reflect the available parts. Everything except for the custom wheel covers still exists in the tool (and I let them know that), so let's hope that the next reissue contains those parts. You can see a short shot of the rear Styline extension on the upper left of the photo. This is from a 1990's AMT/Ertl issue.
  10. This is really good. They took away all the negative gimmicks from the Rat Roaster, and added some cool stuff, I'm in for multiples. I do agree that a beam axle would have been nice though. Kitbash in the flatty from the Tudor sedan, and you're almost to the Doane Spencer roadster.
  11. I fully agree. In fact, they look more accurate for a gen 1 Falcon than they do for the 66-up. I suggested the Moebius kit for those who cant handle molded in suspension.
  12. New release? Hopefully with the Styline parts gates reopened.
  13. I've always liked that box art. Glad to see the Avanti back. I need to get one.
  14. I agree. Scalemates is completely unreliable.
