MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. It wouldn't be too hard to 3d print, but probably not much demand for them.
  2. I've got the hood. Any chance you'd have a TH350 transmission?
  3. I might be able to 3d print a set for you. I made some for my 55 gasser project which is using a 426 hemi. The hemi exhaust ports face nearly downward vs. BBC which is at a more conventional angle. I have some BBC heads that I can measure the angle, but I'm unsure what model they came from and engines vary greatly in size between model companies. I would need to know the spacing distance between the #1 and #7 exhaust ports on your model.
  4. I have these which are probably from the Monogram 70 Challenger.
  5. Mike, It came out great! Model on!
  6. They even have the same issue number, which is kind of strange.
  7. I've got a convertible kit. It's the non-Nash Bridges Cuda.
  8. It turns out I only have one set of big 'n Littles. You're welcome to them if you want. It's not too hard to cut the back ones down with a razor saw, I've done it a few times. I had 2 kits, one was a glue bomb and I must have thrown it away. Sorry!
  9. Pretty sure I have them, but won't be able to get to them for a couple of weeks 😕.
  10. I'm working on one too. As seen at the burnout contest at Cleetus and Cars. I think I paid about $40 for the AMT version on eBay. The MPC version is more accurate, although AMT used much of the MPC tooling. The grille in the AMT kit is from a Monte Carlo. It will need a lot of work!
  11. It's worth a try, and would save having to reshoot the primer and black paint. I normally use 3200 or 3600 grit before top coat. My concern would be getting all of the residual wax from the polishing compound removed before the next coat of paint goes on. If you don't it's likely to have fish eyes. I would try to find out what the body shops use as a wax remover before paint.
  12. I gave up on the marker after it got old and produced the results you described. I broke it open and poured the ink into a paint bottle. I either paint it on or for larger parts I airbrush it, both with good results.
  13. Nicely done. Great looking paint!
  14. You could saw 2 cylinders off a 350 LT1 and get a pretty decent rendition of a 4.3. The LT1 was in the Monogram C4 Corvettes. Was the 4.3 available in the Caprice? I would think that you would need to push it up hills!
