MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. First for me was a Monogram snap Dodge Daytona. It was still a new car, so about 85 or 86. I was 6 or 7. What got me interested was my older brother's models. He came home from the Navy with several he had built. He put them on display in my other brother's room. He says he doesn't know what happened to them, but eventually I'd like to recreate them. I did build a replica of the only one that wasn't finished. MPC Dodge Supercharger 74 Charger. He had sprayed it black and that was as far as he'd gotten. I painted mine black too.
  2. You're right. Now I remember seeing a few when I was a kid. Also, my high school best friend bought a 78 that had been pieced together from several trucks. Talk about confusing. Well, the title said 78, anyway. It didn't look like one. It was originally a manual cab. The clutch pedal was wired to the floor, and there was an auto shifter on the transmission tunnel. The shifter put a dent in the bench seat when placed in drive lol
  3. This kit has a lot wrong with it, but the average person probably wouldn't notice most of it. The windshield has to be fixed. If using the 78/79 grill, the gas cap needs to be replaced with a rectangular fuel door. The lower body trim isn't supposed to be on a 78/79. I'm sure there's more I'm forgetting, as it's been a couple of years since I built the last of mine.
  4. Thanks for the help everyone. I'm not too worried about having to modify a part. I just hoped there was something that fit pretty good from get go.
  5. Does anyone know where to source one? Or a good one to modify? I was looking at the kits on ebay and the pics of the parts trees do not show one.
  6. Nice looking build! I have one of these somewhere. I think it came from Ollie's cheap.
  7. Great looking build! Aoshima has made LHD BRZ kits, although they are the first gen. I don't know if they have have produced the updated model like Tamiya has. The interiors are slightly different between the two gens. Converting the Tamiya kit will also require the LHD firewall from the Aoshima kit.
  8. Which exact primers are you guys using under the Duplicolor? I've used Duplicolor in the past with great results, but my primer was 20ish year old Plasitcote that I don't think is available now.
  9. Like the title says, has anyone turned this kit prostreet? Or have any suggestions on an appropriate chassis to modify? The frame in my kit is so warped it kind of looks like a banana.
  10. I too, am a 79 model, and I remember this style fondly. Love it.
  11. Cool topic. I don't have anything from when I began that still survives. Oldest build goes back to 2000. It's not much different than the ones from around 5 years ago. I started out really bad, got better and better, then regressed a little bit. My hands just don't work as good as they used to.
  12. The Isuzu is now rolling on Subaru wheels (even though they're 5 lugs lol)
  13. Hasegawa Gemini. May convert it to LHD and give it a bowtie on the grill. Nissan wheels were just meant to figure out stance, but I kind of like them.
