MCM Regular

MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. These are four I've been working on this year. They are a little past "mock up" but still in progress. I clearly need to focus!
  2. Wow, I haven't seen this one for a long time! A friend of mine owned this car sometime in the '80s and it looked pretty much the same. He drove it to car shows and got lots of attention as you might imagine. I remember being very impressed by the workmanship and quality displayed. It looked like a factory job. When I rode in it the ride was best described as "squishy ".... I sure wish we had a scale '50 - '53 Buick. Thanks for the memory jog.
  3. I learned to drive in my dad's 66 GMC Suburban - V-6, three on the tree and power nothing. That was a beast for a 16 year old. I kind of miss the old column shifters!
  4. As they say, it's only worth what someone is willing to pay. $3K for a work of art by a recognized master seems appropriate. By the way, this Lincoln is built off a 3d printed body. The interior is mostly scratch built as are many details. Awesome work Paul!
  5. That's a great looking model! Nice to see an unusual subject finished to such a high level. The scratch built air cleaner is very clever. May I ask where you sourced the hub caps?
  6. What a fun model! It looks like a replica of the 1:1 Big Foot museum in Willow Creek California. I've been there a few times.
  7. Great looking Dodges Terry! I'm pretty sure you started the weathered look trend way back in the 90s with your Cowboy Cadillac at GSLMCC. Looks like you still do it best. I'm inspired to finish my '78 short bed! I hope our paths cross again someday soon.
  8. Great looking Nova! Simple but well executed. They don't all have to be super detailed to be great models.
  9. Nice truck! I think the color and sheen are just right. Love it.
  10. It's a knock out! Great work. I'm inspired to dig out my half finished example that I started 20 years ago. Gotta get the engine decals.
  11. Thank you all for your kind words. Glad you liked it. And I agree - a Falcon has to have a six and a stick.
  12. I've always had a fondness for the Falcon Rancheros but was disappointed with the latest AMT reissue - Chevy engine, ill fitting wheels and the simplified chassis had to go. Over the past few months I have fitted a Revell 68 Mustang chassis (extended 5/8 inches at the rear, used a nice resin cast 6, and adapted Tamya Lotus 7 wheels. The Mustang chassis had the right wheel base, width, and fender well details but required a lot of cutting and filing around the firewall. The single exhaust is bent solder and the gas tank is from an old Revell 55 Chevy. I've never looked under a real Ranchero so the added structure and gas tank shape and size is my best guess. The paint is an original 60 Ford Belmont blue under clear coat and lots of polishing. I think I have overdone this one but I'm happy with the result. Comments welcome. Thanks for looking.
  13. Here's a rear shot. Apologies for the quality... Thanks
  14. I've known Paul since he was 13. The stories I could tell! Unfortunately for me he recently moved to Florida. I have watched him create masters of many never before offered models and am just amazed by his creative talent. These can take years to develop to his standards.
  15. Thanks Charlie! The chestnut interior isn't very exotic - just Testors leather (a military color) with dark brown inserts (enamel). I sprayed it all with some Ace Hardware satin clear then Molotow pen for highlights. Your choice of Oxford blue should look awesome. Please post some photos when it's finished.
