MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Way cool build! I love the wheels. I was not aware the 66 GP has the large chrome rocker trim. A little research shows that they indeed do. What was your technique for the vinyl roof?
  2. Thanks Steve! Your timing is impeccable as I have 4 clear steering wheels for my Big Girls batch build.
  3. You nailed the stance. This is my favorite of the "Fuselage" era bodies.
  4. Shapeways has traction bars.
  5. Moebius has Big Rig wheels sets that have the smooth caps. The hubs could be painted chrome to complete the look. The tires themselves are darn nice too. https://www.ebay.com/itm/193678848158?mkevt=1&mkcid=1&mkrid=711-53200-19255-0&campid=5338722076&toolid=10001 https://www.modelroundup.com/Big-Rig-Wheel-and-Tire-Set-p/moe-1010.htm https://www.hobbylinc.com/moebius-semi-wheels:tires-10-pack-plastic-model-vehicle-accessory-set-1:25-scale-1010
  6. You are braver than me. If I trashed a body that bad, I would have given up right there. I already have more kits than time on this planet.
  7. I love the stylized body flares and the hood. That intake is way cool too. Is there a radiator in the future or is this motor air cooled?
  8. Very nicely done. You said it was a resin. Was it mfg by another company once upon a time?
  9. Very beautiful color. The chrome trim has been very well done. Excellent detail on the engine as well.
  10. Update! Now the workshop has a crew. After 3 hours on ebay, I picked the most appropriate 9 characters to add some "life" to my car photos. They came prepainted which saved me a BOATLOAD of time I did not want to spend. This will probably be the only time I will use them all a once. Now I need to give them names... To help them stand upright, I installed tiny magnets in their feet to work with the metal plate hidden in the floor.
  11. I used to build cell sites for a living 20+ years ago. Absolutely had to have a Verizon phone to communicate while building Sprint, GTE and Cingular networks. They were the only ones with coverage most everywhere in Washington state. Had their service for almost 20 years. Got too costly. Now I am in Oregon and switched to Sprint a few years ago. They recently got bought out by T-Mobile. Coverage has been good enough. I have 3 lines for $129/month. Never have data issues as the two heaviest users are always on wifi. My job uses AT&T. Coverage sucks when indoors.
  12. That turned out very pretty.
