MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I think it would be a lot less work to get a Fujimi early 911 (enthusiast model) and turn that into this targa, than get a 911 G-series from Revell and convert that to an early 911. Even if not available at this moment, Fujimi releases them every few years.
  2. In this age of 3d CAD designing, it makes much more sense to start from scratch and make it in CAD.
  3. Perhaps a Oreca Gibson, Tamiya sponsored team #82:
  4. I am making resin sets of the correct Dunlop wheels (square holes) and the round holes version in 1/8th. As I have made them in 3D CAD, it should not be big deal to make a smaller version for 1/24.
  5. Not really here yet, it is only a testshot. Might take a while before it is really 'here'.
  6. No I haven't yet, I broke my wallet on 3 Pocher's :-(. So, I might later on, maybe, perhaps.... But I had the idea of getting the panelvan, design a trailer for it and put a 356 on it.
  7. Arno, trust me; pre-order! I did (@modelbouwenzo). I have seen 3D renderings of the Lotus (and no, unfortunately I am not at liberty to share them due to a NDA). But starting with the upcoming Ducati, there is a fresh start with Pocher and it is very promising!
  8. Even that considered, it was hopeless. I think I bought that cd in '06-'07. The pictures are lo-res and you can't zoom in anything. In that timeperiod, I bought my first DSLR camera, 14mp and it made great pictures. Paying a hefty sum for that cd was a huge disappointment.
  9. I got the reference CD of the 935 from Scalemotorsports, what a enormous let down..... waste of money. Sure, there are pictures, but they lack quite a lof of pixels.
  10. It was already announced in the beginning of last year, but yeah, then we had an annoying virus happening. Italy got struck very hard with the virus, so I can imagine that it pushed back the release a lot. The Delta should've been released somewhere last year, but I wouldn't be suprised if it now comes in the second half year of this year. I am very much looking forward for the release though. I think it is the first rather modern hatchback that is being released in 1/12.
  11. I am still looking forward for the 1/12 Delta, i'll pick up at least 2
  12. I got married, have 2 kids and......: My other car is a Megane diesel......... ? But, I bought this back in 2002 and still have it. Just bought a place where I can have it actually at home and the plan is to get it back on the road this year. It hasn't been since 2006. They feel quite fast, and the turbo lag is very entertaining ? It is still a honest ride, steering is responsive, handling is like it should in a hot hatch and they smell like petrol ?
  13. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder. For me, I love the design of the French cars, they dare to think outside the box and spend a bit more time on the design than other manufacturers did. Nowadays that is not really happening anymore as most cars can basically be brand-switched with different lights and emblems. I have to say that there is quite a difference between the American 5 (leCar) and the original 5 (the European). The American version is a European one, with a lot of modifications to meet the required american laws, which wasn't counted for in the original design and that shows. But the European version is in balance and quite stylish, compared to other European cars from that era, especially compared to the German counterparts. I am a second-generation 5 (super5 or super-cinque) owner and I do love the design of that small car. I have the sporty version, which has a small turbo-charged I4 engine, but generates enough oomph to have fun. even though it has only 120 hp, it also weighs about 1600 pounds.
  14. This is the 'Alouette', which is the person version of the Estafette.
