MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Hard Justin, few of the lads out to cause havoc!? Kind of thinking a cross between a Bogan vehicle, hunting vehicle and something apocalyptic. Although it has a broken windshield is cracked so either getting a replacement from Aoshima(if they send out replacement parts?) or using some box window type plastic. What sort of kits do you build Justin? PM me if you want, be good to have a chinwag.
  2. I have just got this kit and have a few build ideas, firstly stock to resemble one I had a few years ago, second option is to something a bit different, maybe a WW2 Japanese green with aircraft insignia, Jap red sun decals etc, some weathering which will be a first for me. Would also like to build some kind of roof rack and on top spare wheels fuel can etc. Undecided as of yet. Pics are firstly of one that looks like the one I had, next is box art.
  3. Glenn and Oscar, Thank you for the replies, Glenn, I had missed your last post, and had already started to do this as I would with a 1:1, so I will keep you guys posted.
  4. Yes, Thanks guys have seen the kit, last ones I saw on eBay were around the $100 mark which is way too much money for me, even this kit cost $65 NZ ! So trying to go with what I have.
  5. I have just purchased the Aoshima Hilux 4WD, it is the standard 4WD one not the Raised one. I want to turn it into a 2WD so need to lower it and obviously lose the front diff and transfer case etc. I thought maybe the purchase of one of the Lowrider kits and transfer the Chassis's over, then lift the suspension on the Lowrider kit chassis, bringing me to the height I am after, looking at doing it as a work "Ute". So guys any thoughts would be appreciated.
  6. Hi Andy, yes it is good for its drawers, they are deep enough, I have all my tyres and wheels in the bottom drawers, the rest of my parts next drawer up, then paints(need to get more) etc. I am in the process of getting back into the hobby, I started too when starting this thread, then life got in the way etc, hoping to get more tools in the coming weeks.
  7. Hi all, I have a change in Desks in my area of the family hobby room, my Desk pictured in my first post was just too deep, it took up a lot of space in the room too, and as I share it with my wife I wanted something smaller. I got what looks to be an old Teachers desk the other day which I am really liking thus far, I also finally got an angle poise lamp that is fantastic for lighting, at night I do not need any other lights on, which is good as I got an energy saving bulb.
  8. Manky , rusty, looking like it might smell? Very cool, will be watching this one too, anybody got any popcorn?
  9. Sweet space you have there. Signed A overly jealous green eyed monster !!
  10. Considering you say the SSR interior has gone to the junk pile you could maybe craft the door panels in to the 55? Or at least the arm rests? Seems like a lot of work, but you have a lot of work in it already.
  11. If you are happy in your marriage then compromise. I personally would get some MDF shelves and set up a wall with shelves so that you never have more than 4 kits high reducing the squash of the kits on the bottom( I would check them next time ?I had spare time)
  12. Hey guys so my question is as my title states? Chevy orange? Chysler orange? I realise Model master will do something although not sure if hobby shops stock Model master in New Zealand, I know one shop was talking about getting a full range of Testors paints just before I put my kits away a couple of years ago, going go there tomorrow. Chrysler Orange is most important as I need that now. Thanks guys.
  13. In the best way possible as a beginner(as I sorta am myself) you have picked a nice steep learning curve, you will be getting to know the basics of a few different tasks. Filler, guys use bondo, I use Tamiya putty. Be sure to primer before laying putty, it will protect the plastic somewhat. Check out YouTube too, get your Cranky on! A lot of others on there too.
  14. Yes Carl, they should last longer for the money, which is mainly why I go 2nd with this sort of thing. I am also looking at a chair that is similar to a desk chair I used in the 90's was not very ergonomic but comfortable all the same, and solid.
