MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Thanks. It’s been rainy lately, so painting sessions will have to become more of an opportunistic affair. Fortunately that gives me time to start on the trailer.
  2. A plastic model kit of any modern side by side would be nice. Great for dioramas as well as trailer loads. Horse trailer and Ram would be great as a combo kit.
  3. Another small update. Chassis was painted in Rustoleum black enamel, the engine in cat yellow. Still working on routing intake and exhaust pipes.
  4. Round2 reissuing this fifth horseman unto the general public:
  5. Your Jimmy’s looking sharp. I like how you painted the wheels.
  6. The Lindberg and Revell kits both are pretty good. From what I’ve heard, the cab of the AMT tooling has a couple problems with it, but it includes the styleside short box and 16” styled steel wheels. The only thing I can find to nitpick about the Lindberg kit is the lack of weather stripping detail around the side windows, but that’s easily remedied with some sanding and Evergreen.
  7. I’m interested to see the decal sheet they include with this reissue. I know the inclusion of gauge decals and the 4X4 bedside decals would be greatly appreciated. The folks at Round2 would be real sweethearts to include Lariat pinstripes as well.
  8. Just a placeholder photo on their website. Although I wouldn’t doubt that Round2 would release this kit under the AMT label, they’ve done that with most of the reissued of Lindberg vehicle kits in recent years.
  9. According to Rocketfin.com, this kit is planned for an upcoming reissue.
  10. Settle down hoss. I wasn’t offended, I was making my own observation on the matter.
  11. Depends on the size of the gap. For bigger gaps, strips of Evergreen plastic can be used first to help fill the gap between plastic edges. After sanding that down, filler putty can be used to fill the rest of the void and bring surfaces flush. Repeat if there are still holes and dips. I’ve found that after sanding putty smooth, applying a coat of super glue afterwards helps minimize putty shrinkage and fill any pores in the putty. Lots of sand paper in between and after each step. Good luck, chassis looks great.
  12. I respect him for turning the other cheek when others on here were picking apart a project that wasn’t intended for them. I think if the project was completed, this place would be one of the last to know, as evidenced by the feedback he received. I don’t know why the old guys complain about young people not taking interest in the hobby, then turn around and put up a front to those who do take an interest in the hobby just because they have different taste.
  13. Glued and threw some parts on the chassis and did some basic plumbing. It and that Cat are ready for primer now. I just knew that Detroit would be getting a visit from the Oil Fairy.
