MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Now that is cool. I have that kit but it scares me. Nice to know that it can be done...thanks for sharing.
  2. Bruce...having done that kit myself I know what a decal challenge that was. But it looks like you were up to the job and a mighty fine one it was. Good work.
  3. Way to go Dave. Nice job on that Porsche. How did you like the Fisher kit ? I just happen to be working on an LH myself in a Martini livery.
  4. Joe really nice job. Silver is a tough finish to master but you nailed it. My guess is Tamiya Mica Silver. What did you really use for base and top coat.
  5. Very nice Mario and very cool backdrop. Hmmmm....thought I heard "La Grange" playing in the back ground there.
  6. Harry,,,this one really caught my eye. The color, the wheels everything about this just says Mustang. Always like your posts because you explain a lot. Even your mistakes and we all make em. Good job.
  7. These are cool kits and a lot can be done with them. Your paint and decal work is real sharp and you did a nice job overall. Mario and Michael are not that tall. 5'5" would be pushing it. The driver figures were not the best feature of these kits.
  8. Paul.. every year in May I do a model show at the Watkins Glen Motor Racing Research Center. I have 6 custom made display cases (only take 4) and usually take about 60 models of various scales. Below are two of the three cases I took last year. You can see how they are packed. Those empty cigarette paper boxes hold the more delicate cars. I use latex foam and crushed up paper towel to seperate them. I take tools and glue to repair any thing plus some small zip loc baggies to store parts that fall off. I suffer very few casualties from the 35mi one way trip. I take these pictures of the cases loaded so after the show I can pack them back the same way. Its very effective and I have been doing it this way for close to 20yrs now. Hope this helps.
  9. Thanks...it was well worth it...probably Tamiya's finest effort to date.
  10. Great job on this one. Very nice paint and decal work.
  11. Very cool Rex, nice job on an old kit. I did one of these a few years back and featured it in this post:http://www.modelcarsmag.com/forums/topic/176585-mclaren-senna/
  12. All I can say is wow what a kit. Most impressive in the fit and finish. Especially the body panels and glass. What started as a painting excercise turned out to be a 2 week project. Finished it yesterday. Color is a custom mix of the Tamiya LP line. LP42 Mica red (45%), LP44 Metallic orange (45%) and LP62 Titanium gold (10%). Clearcoat was with LP2 and the black is Tamiya TS14 spray. Extras include the Studio 27 carbon fibre set and some scratch built seatbelts. Lots of detail pictures with captions. Thanks for looking and comments welcome. Engine and rear suspension detail. This was so well done and fit precisely that it would have been a shame not to take a picture. Brake discs rotate with the wheels....an interesting feature. Tamiya spared nothing on the interior. Studio 27 spared nothing on the either. Those blue things in the doors are the exposed struts to hold the doors open. Kit did not have working doors as they were quite complex to begin with. The rest of the interior. There were 3 stainless steel bezels for the air vents that didn't make the picture. They almost did make the model. The body had to be removed so they could be added. Luckily it was very well engineered and went on and off easy. Finished car. I was looking for a very reddish orange with a hint of gold. I liked this color and wound up finishing the kit. Lots of detail back here. Really liked how the wing fit and the fact you could adjust the angle. There are lots of little winglets all over this car. That little pieces of carbon fibre just behind the rear wheel has two of them. I went with the optional window on the lower door. The driver sits so low in this car it is necessary for vision. Carbon fibre everywhere. 150 pieces in total that all had to be massaged into place with heat and solvent. Then clearcoated. I used a new varnish called Just Like Glass that works a looks a lot like Future. Two coats brushed on and it really made the CF pop. Some more of the rear end detail . There were 50+ decals for the splitter and bumper. The chrome stick on logos were a nice touch. My growing Mclaren collection. The two silver ones are diecast, the 570S is an unbuilt (but started) Revell 1/24, the orange racing version is an Aoshima (I think) , the white one a Fujimi and the good ole Mclaren Mustang. Enjoy!
