MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Nice... I just received the millennium falcon and x wing in mail and waiting for tie interceptor all from ebay. Wish the scale sizes were bigger though..lol
  2. UPDATE 4/2/20 So I got both doors and tailgate hinged onto body (SEE PICS). The hood I wanted to do something different. So I used a hood that I had that probably went to a 55 cuz doesn't perfectly match up. Instead of a hood that opens from front I cut it down middle and kept it simple by using masking tape to hinge to body. Unfortunately I dont have front or side windows but wouldn't be first model I've done without the windows.
  3. UPDATE 3/31/20 Hi everyone Hope everyone is staying safe out there during this pandemic. Anyway so on my previous post on engine. I decided to not use that one and use a different one. With a little filing and sanding here and there I built an engine. Dont know size but it will work. (SEE PICS). The water pump I used a spare one and reshaped it a bit. I added extensions on the main belt and pulleys so I could add a belt for alternator. I had to make a port on the manifold for one of the radiator hoses. Paint color is aluminum block and heads, silver chrome valve covers and alternator mounting brackets and gold on carbs and carb cover.
  4. UPDATE 3/27/20 So even though i have an engine in this car originally it looked ugly paint wise. Been going through spare parts to see if I could just rebuild a fresh unpainted engine but everything I have just dont seem to match up either heads to small for block or whatever. So I carefully took apart engine i had in it and luckily it came apart pretty easy (SEE PIC.) All apart and I used thinner to remove most of paint. I really need to stock up a little on spare parts.
  5. UPDATE 3/24/20 Hi guys So made a little more progress on this build (SEE PICS). I had to reinforce the front end of body because model is old and brittle in some areas. Scratch built tailgate and wheel wells. Im thinking about carpeting entire floor and wheel wells but need to figure out type of glue that will stick to material and plastic.
  6. Hi guys Im thinking about using some material for carpet on my current project and was wondering what glue would work to adhere to material and plastic? I was browsing for an answer online but couldn't find a definite answer. Thanks in advance
  7. TY slusher, currently working on next project, 57 chevy nomad.
  8. Hi guys So finally finished truck which used to be the USA monster truck. Body color metallic black, inside cab black and white. Seat belt harnesses made from masking tape. Electric fan/radiator hand made mounted in bed as well as battery. Engine compartment I used bare metal foil on firewall and sides. For first time on a model I did a wiring harness and alternator/starter have positive/negative wires. The bed cover and hood are scratch built. Im still going to add few decals and license plates later but for now it's Under the Glass. Thanks for looking.
  9. UPDATE 3/18/20 Hi guys So body is painted, ended up doing metallic black only. Think I will do the pearl white on a different project. Just glued body to frame and will finish small little details. So hopefully within next few days it will be finished and posted in Under Glass section.
  10. UPDATE 3/16/20 So I made some progress (SEE PICS), got all paint stripped off of body and floor of cab. Also rebuilt rear chassis and inside cab rear floor/trunk. Reason I rebuilt rear was because when I originally built it I used what I had and rear tires were snug in between body and floor/trunk panel touching both so I wanted to fix that and the trunk panel wasn't level with rest of floor of cab it was tilted upwards. Little body work needed.
  11. Hi guys So I'm at tail end of my other project (chevy truck) and decided im going to start a new project while im finishing my other. I believe its a 56-57 chevy nomad that I've had for a very long time. I kinda just threw it together with what was with it. I acquired it when I first got into modeling. It's pretty bare bones. Basically I'm going to carefully tear it down and rebuild it. SEE PICS
  12. UPDATE 3/11/20 Hi guys Just a quick update. So I'm getting close to permanently assemble truck and finish off details. Been looking at colors for body and decided to do metallic black and pearl white.
  13. UPDATE 3/9/20. SEE PICS So engine is glued in place and since radiator is going in bed I scratch built the 2 tubes for hoses to hook up from engine and from bed. Also finishing up on cab painting just a little touch up needed. The seatbelt harness is made from masking tape and used black sharpie.
