MCM Regular

MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. When do you do interior of roof, body, engine compt wheel wells, hood? berfore exterior body and then mask? Thanks, John
  2. I am in the early stages of building the Fujimi kit as Chassis 3757 (the often modeled Nick Mason #22), but as it was raced at LeMans in 1962 while it still had only two cooling cutout "gills" on the side. I have the Haynes "shop manual" which is great help and have done a lot of internet searching for both models and 1/1, but wish I could find documentation of brake lines, fuel line, electrical wiring etc. I have the Scale Auto magazine 35 years disk, but if anyone knows of a specific article with such info it would be great as the search function leaves a lot to be desired. Thanks, John
  3. Try the Steelnavy.net and/or modelwarships.com sites. 1/700 will be easier to find but for most is close enough.
  4. Does anyone have experience with MCW's enamel clear coat over their new enamels? Different subject- How about MCW's regular acrylic clear coat over decals? Thanks, John
  5. I think the fujimi rear window shape is clearly more accurate. I like the meng hood. All in all the new kit looks great to me. I wonder if the fijimi rear body would fit the meng kit. I think it would probably look great if left open to show the engine, which is what I would do anyway.
  6. Steve, are the individual letters on the side of your Grand Prix and the trunk of your Mercury covered with one piece of foil or individually? I'd be hard put to cut out the individual letters. Thanks, John
  7. I know that there is controversy over Shelby colors. I an building a 1966 427 Cobra with base Guardsman Blue and Wimbledon White stripes. Looking up the official Ford colors, the Wimbledon White is almost an ivory as it was used on the Mustang. I find it very hard to judge a shade of white when close to a dark blue background. Would you go with the ivory shade or a more basic white? Thanks, John
  8. I'm having trouble finding photoetch for this style belt. Everything seems to be modern multi-point or stock car.
  9. Unfortunately the ones I want are white signatures on the black dashboard, hence the need for an ALPS printer. Thanks, John
  10. Does anyone make a 1/24 or1/25 white decal of Shelby's signature as often seen on the dashboard of Cobras? I know it's probably a licensing no-no issue, but I thought I'd ask as I don;t have access to an ALPS printer. John
  11. https://www.themodellingnews.com/2021/04/meng-downsizes-but-doesnt-dub-down.html#more Saw this this morning. Sounds interesting.
  12. Does anyone have experience with MCW enamel metallics? I am using their Guardsman Blue and wonder if it would be better over a silver coat or is white stynelres sufficient? Thanks, John
  13. I have had good luck with Gorilla brand super glue (not the classic Gorilla Glue) which comes with the blue cap. It has a long steel pin which keeps the hole open. It is a moderately slow setting Ca which give you time to locate parts.
