MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. until
    Atlanta Car Model Enthusiasts will host our 25th anniversary show on November 6th 2021 at the Smyrna Community Center. Generally we have 550 car models but probably more this year. For more information see our Facebook page. Here is a link to our club site about the show, including a printable PDF file of our flyer with all information : 2021 ACME Southern Nationals | ACME (acme-ipms.com)
  2. Don't give up on the leather top idea yet. Go to ebay or esty and search for " glove leather scraps". You will find plenty thin leather there. Get lambskin, as it is the thinnest and softest. If too thick, get a skiving knife and remove material from the back. Here is a photo of a sample that I have; it's .030 mm (1/64"). It is very soft and flexible. I'm using it as a sample to see how well it takes stains, which is very well.
  3. You would get a better quality print if you used a resin printer rather than a filament printer. Or have Shapeways print it. The Maserati Zagato will be very complex and will be a serious learning experience for you. Keep us posted.
  4. A Italeri kit was used as a base, the body was sheet plastic with putty applied to it. Not very well. which caused a bit of work for me. It wasn't resin cast.
  5. I acquired this from one of this forum's members (Thanks, Eric). He got it from a well known South African resin caster, but is not his work. Who made it is unknown. It was really third rate work and I spent a considerable amount of time smoothing out the body, reshaping the trunk and correcting other areas. I'm fairly satisfied with the results. I consider the Kellner coupe to be the most attractive of all the Royales.
  6. Bernard, My Maserati A6GCS from South America looks different, also. The panel lines are cleaner and narrower. Seats are different and the door line on the left side is different. I suspect what you got is a knock off.
  7. How many unfinished projects do you have on your workbench?
  8. The Mangusta haunts me and the quicker I get it done, the better I can sleep.
  9. Thanks for the compliments! I'm now finished.
