MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. Thanks for the nice words, guys! I'm now waiting for a time slot to start priming/painting parts. Between work and family I haven't been able to do zilch.
  2. I've restarted this project for the winter...After building a few hot rods, I want to build a couple of unusual subjects. This is one of them, an MPC Chevy Beretta. This is the initial mockup: It won't have much customizations done other than wheels, tires, brakes, and a lowered suspension. Planned colors are white, burgundy interiors, and black wheels.
  3. Great build! It's fun trying to figure out what kind of person lived in there.

    Wow. Amazing paint. Looks very real. Love the stance, and the understated elegance.
  5. This is not just a build diary, this is a friggin' how-to article! Love this! Excellent work. I'm learning a LOT. Thank you!
  6. Those cars had truckload of style. A real American classic. You capture the elegance perfectly. Great job!
  7. Keep it and finish it!

    Love this. Pretty much a badass build!
  9. Good tip about the wheels. Luckily I hadn't glued them to the backing, so I pulled the outer rims out, sanded them flat, and now they fit flush. Also put in the Texas plates. Now I'm done! Pics tomorrow from the show.

    Love it! So squeaky clean.
  11. Hey guys! Recently completed this model to compete in a local contest tomorrow! It's the '28 rat rod kit. I decided to build it as a "daily driver" rat, meaning that it had to be driveable and not slammed to the ground. The kit is basically stock except for the engine and driveline; they come from the AMT International Scout II kit. That's one huge 345 V8! Of course, it's not built as 4WD. Due to the engine size, I had to move back the cab and bed. Rear wheels come from the Scout, while the front wheels and tires come from the 1988 Revell VW Golf kit (?!). It has been properly weathered and dirties but not to the extreme. Only thing missing completion is the custom Texas license plate that I printed today. Enjoy!
