MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. On the way home from the last GSL in 2019, I challenged my buddy John Teresi to a radial engine motorcycle build-off. Not too bright on my part, I'm not even being close to being as good as John. But what the heck, it's only a model and it will make me kick my game up. We got our inspiration from a couple of bikes that exist in the real world. Our buddy Steve Allemand, 3D printed us both a couple of 1/12th scale 7 cylinder radial engines and a bunch of extra parts as well. So the journey began. You can find the builds on the WIP forum. Here are photos of the completed bikes. John's Bike: Curt's Bike: Here they are together on a base as presented at the IPMS Contest in Las Vegas. Their next appearance will be at the SoCal Model Show October 3rd and NNL West January 22, 2022. Thanx for lookin'
  2. Fantastic John, these photos are really really nice of our bikes! It was FUN!! I'll work on posting a thread in Under-Glass for the bikes.
  3. Dan, they will be there!! First unveiling will be at the IMPS Nationals in Las Vegas next month. C'ya
  4. Again you nailed the "AlClad" finish. Engine is fantastic. Time to get that base built Excellent work Buddy!
  5. Thanx Guys it was fun building it then seeing the real car in the NHRA Museum a few years back. My buddy Steve has the artwork for this car.He should be able to print up a set of decals for you. Contact info for Steve is: allemand64@aim.com good luck
  6. If memory serves me well, I scratch built that part with styrene rod and or tubing.
  7. Hopefully we'll see you in Phoenix next April...
  8. I've got two more of his NASCAR racers to build, the 1953 and 1954 Oldsmobiles. Then I will build the USAC cars he raced when he was kicked out of NASCAR in 1962-1964. Ol'Curtis did get around.
  9. Yep, I won it at the auction. Was missing parts, but Gerry Chevalier found the parts I needed. I think I built the 1st issue of the C9. Yeah, I'm still waiting for Teresi to build his radial bike!
  10. Found a lot of bench time this year. thanx for lookin'...
