Good work Tomo, this Fujimi kit is so much better proportionally than the Revell Mk2, the Revell kits just looks wrong to me, shame cos their Mk1 kit is a beauty. And who could miss the stunning Miss Ellis-Bextor ....if Carlsberg created women ? Lol
Those are both beautiful builds Adam, guess Ill be on the look out for more MPC loser kits , they are a bit thin on the ground over here, but do pop up on fleabay now and again. And yes it is the silver SVO kit I have it does look a real nice kit, I was very lucky with the glass, a tire had welded to it and when I peeled off the offending item the plastic windshield was slightly tacky from the reaction, but i did manage to sand it down (almost too much..there is a slight depression now lol) but it looks clear and almost as good as new. Great blog by the way Ill be following that one.
I have that that Vintage car wrecks book, Im almost afraid to say I like the book as there are some pretty nasty crashes in there. There was a similar book a few years back by Taschen i think called Car Crashes featuring Mel Kilpatricks accident photography that one is interesting yet very graphic and not for the squeamish.
Yep models and guitars for me too, I was in a few rock type bands about 10 years ago, my current "gear" I have Fender Precision Bass Fender Jazz bass 60s reissue Gibson SG Special (Pete Towshend ltd ) Fender Telecaster Lite Ash Epiphone Les Paul Custom Fender Bronco and Mustang modelling amps ...great little amps.
I have the MPC 79 Indy Pace car Mustang and the 84 SVO kits in the stash, I only recently got them just because I like the shape of the Fox body Mustangs and I was quite surprised at the level of detail in these old kits......apart from the floorpan but that can be enhanced. And yes both kits suffered the usual MPC traits the pace car had hardly and parts left attached to the trees, and the SVO kit had a tire that had welded to the windsheild, but I managed to fix that by sanding and polishing it out. Adam you are a bit like me in liking the offbeat and loser cars, I just havent built any yet!. So are the other MPC kits like the Mustang for detail , Im thinking the EXP and the Daytona maybe?.
