MCM Regular

MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. So here’s my pics of what I have so far, I used the rear clip from my junkyard roadster along with some bits from a scrap roadster I had. I used some styrene sheet to reinforce the body where I joined the two halves. Then shaped the window frame to look similar to the convertible.
  2. I have thought long and hard about how to correct the 67 corvette roadster by revell, I love the kit it’s self, (I have about 30 of them in my stash) just everytime I build one the front end needs major reshaping. However the coupe kit nails the body shape in my opinion. So I finally bit the bullet and combined the two. My question would be do I do this every time or should I attempt to recast this body out of resin? Also has anybody ever cast a body out of resin and are there any pointers on how I could accomplish this task? Thanks in advance
  3. Yes, as long as you use the interior tub from the 67
  4. I’ve got the frame painted, and most of the engine painted. I tried to recreate the over spray on the fiberglass portion of the chassis, only problem is the blue almost blends with the dark gray fiberglass. Next is the suspension and the engine details.
  5. I think that might be the best option, I’m thinking about using the whole rear clip from behind the doors.
  6. Thanks, I think I’m going to scribe it in the tail panel. Or paint it on, Ive been thinking about the best way to do it, the biggest gripe I have with the body is the size of the tail light holes, they are a bit to big.
  7. I finished up the body mods, now have it in primer. Next I’m going to start on the engine/chassis while the body work fully cures.
  8. After a bit of test fitting I found that the revell 67 chassis will fit perfectly, my 69 z/28 camaro was kind enough to donate it’s small block engine, I removed the fender vents from my old junkyard scene sting ray. I have some knock off wheels around here some where, locating them is a trick though. Other than that I believe this is now a complete kit, time to get started
  9. You can use purple power to strip paint, just submerge it in a plastic tub with a lid for a few days and the paint will peel right off, ive stripped many many models this way for a few years now.
  10. I think out of all the movie cars in the history of cinema the 1967 Elkhart blue corvette roadster from the movie Con-Air stands out to me the most. Maybe it was the car it’s self, a rare corvette in pristine condition in a movie not about cars at all, or it’s unfortunate fate. Probably one of the most memorable moments of destruction in most car guys mind. A lot of people argue that it was a mock up, or dummy car, that there’s no way they destroyed a real one, unfortunately the footage of the car looks to be quite real, complete with control arms, brakes, turn signals, and a very bright orange oil pan. I’ve always wanted to build a model of this car prior to its plane ride, the biggest issue I have it the car is a small block with a standard hood, revell has a great 67 kit bit the stinger hood is wrong, however the 63 snapper car be made to look correct with a few modifications. So that’s where I will begin. Looking at the still frames of the car it appears that the hero car is Elkhart blue with light teal interior, with rear exhaust and 64-66 knock-off wheels, the drop car has a black interior, there is an article on google saying the drop car was restored to its original condition in the form of a 435 hp 427, with side exhaust and bolt on wheels, but that wasn’t it in the movie. So here’s my attempt at building AZZ-KIKR, the ill fated 67 roadster.
  11. I got the engine complete and in the gts chassis, the rt/10 engine is built but still waiting on a few parts before I build it’s chassis. Other than that everything seems to be going smoothly now
  12. I agree, the original viper was a beast especially in the 90s, who ever heard of a 450 hp v10 with no door locks or even handles lol, plus huge 17 inch rims. Rounded bodywork in a time everything was square, it looks kinda tame by today’s standards but the original car is an absolute icon, and deserves a quality model, I mean it was designed by Carol Shelby. figment seems to be the biggest problem I’m having, it’s almost like doing a real alignment just getting the wheels straight, test fitting after every part is put on, but it seems to be paying off, the wheels fit the body properly this time around, the ZR1 wheels kinda give it the ACR look, I’m hoping to get the issues worked out on the RT/10 so I can finish both at the same time
