MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Hey everyone, we have a new addition to our family. We think he is a boy kitty. We tried to check,but, could not tell for sure. About 2 months ago, he would come along the fence row. If there was any sound or movement, he would take off and cross the road. Little by little, I would call out to him. He finally came close enough to pat his head. I went and got some dry food that Jazzy eats inside. I then gave him some wet food and it was like it was food from the gods. I then worked with him for a few weeks and got him to follow me to our front deck. He now spends most of his time on our front deck. When I sit down outside, he just loves to climb up in my lap and wiggle around to get comfortable. We are feeding him 2-3 times a day. Oh,BTW, he has no teeth !! That's right !! The first time he tried to give me a lovebite, there was no feeling of teeth on my arm. We have since checked and it is true !! We are taking care of him and giving him the pate type of food. He also drools a lot!! He is so loving and can't get enough petting and loving. I don't know what we are going to do when winter comes. He can't come inside. That would be unfair to out other cat.

  5. Thank you so much, Larry. I really appreciate the info and it will make it a lot easier to paint. The instructions are lacking a lot of that. They only call out a few of the part colors. Again, Thanks a lot, George
  6. Thanks Steve, that helps a lot. That is what makes this forum great !!
  7. Hi everyone, I am starting my 1/16 scale car. I know some of the cars of that time had black engines and maybe some aluminum. Does anyone know what color the engine block might be on this? Also should the chassis be a bare metal color, magnesium maybe? Any help on this kit would be great, George
  8. Hi, mine is supposed to be here by Friday. I can't wait to begin. I see that it is molded in a lighter green than the box. What green should we use for it and where can we get an injector scoop like the Garlits TF? Inquiring minds want to know !😆
  9. Hi, i'm talking about the red car. I agree, the gold car is beautiful.
  10. Hi all, I just got the Monogram Miller Warrior funny car. I am going to build it and really need help on correct colors. Any help would be great !! Instructions say chassis is black. That doesn't seem right. Also,is the body a Candy red? Metallic? Any other color help?? Thanks,George
  11. Hi all, my mom taught me in a '63 Plymouth Belvedere, light blue, with the push button transmission on the dash. The car was a bare bones, Slant 6, really no options,no air conditioning, no power anything. The only thing it had was an AM radio. From there, when I had driver's ed. the school had dodge coronet 440. After I passed Driver's Education, my mom and dad got me a '57 Chevy, turquoise body w/ white roof. It had a 265 and three on the tree that someone before me had made it 3 on the floor. Drove it all over Miami and Miami Beach. That is when I really learned to drive.
