MCM Friend (4/6)

  1. Haven’t built a truck in 30 years. Bought this lit for $17 on a whim last year. And wanted to challenge myself with a first time weathering attempt. Goal was to do a Nevada -Texas truck that had some miles that were all in the dry climates. Here is the cab finished tonight. The tanker will be picked up in Texas when we can find a driver, probably Monday.
  2. Model looks great! Thanks for sharing with us. Was just at the Indianapolis 8 hour race last weekend and there were quite a few of these cars. Now I want some Fried Chicken for supper.....
  3. Kurt, what is your take on the gravel tires? Are they Michelin? I bought the Buffum kit and the things came with slicks. I need to build a gravel spec car, can you provide a good picture of what you have, and where to source them? Thanks.
  4. You talking about that Nautical themed one? Like a Caddyshack style Flying Wasp Corvette? Cue the Champagne!
  5. Whoa! I thought this show was done for a few years ago. As a result I never even expect to look for a Toledo show. Seriously, perhaps I don't look hard enough, but can I set some kind of alert for shows that are coming up? I am sad that I missed this show. I am so looking forward to the MCC show in Michigan next month.
  6. Awesome! I love how you positioned and shot the model perfectly to look real! And that weathering - perhaps you can tell us more on what you used on that especially the front bumper. I just saw a real one ( I think it was real, hmmmm) this week doing some service work on trees or something on the side of the road. I slowed down to look at at and thought about this kit....
  7. Oh I hate to do that myself! I love the trio and the 312 engine compartment looks great! The whole model turned out to present nicely, it has to go up front and center. May I ask what happened to the decals on the lower side pods?
  8. Rich. Here is the 1/10 scale kit by Nichimo. Nd you say over 800 builds! Hory Mory that is huge! Congratulations on that number. I have over 200 instruction sheets stored in a box to keep track of my tally….. got some catching up to do. I also have a few Stratos models built. 1/43, 1/24, 1/20 so far…..
  9. Two of us will be there with models to enter in the show. And money to spend on quality accessories....
  10. excellent! Do you have the 1/10 scale kit to build? this is my favorite car of all time.
  11. HL Japan order arrived when I was on vacation. The two will be built as Olympus Rally competitors, and the Mustang I need to find some nice US decals to maybe replicate the VOLT car.
  12. Ok. Not sure what this photo really is. However. This reminds me of a movie I saw long ago. But it was an eye doctor. The movie STARTED with this scene - eventually the eye doctor poured acid in the patients eyes. I turned it off right away. And think of this every time I go to the opthalmologist. no it is not safe!
