MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. looking good! love that color
  2. thanks man! appreciate it. i had a lot of free time last week lol
  3. ahh man...good to know. i was planning on t-topping one of them, so i guess i'll just keep the saw out a little longer. thanks!
  4. what's the deal with the rear window? i have a couple of these in the pipeline looking good tom!
  5. that would look great! but i'm probably going to switch the wheels out soon anyway...i'm looking for a set to match the ones in the photo up top. fireball has a charger set that, with a little tweaking, could get me pretty darn close.
  6. thanks! primed then sprayed with tamiya linoleum deck brown. then took some crinkled plastic wrap and dabbed it in some semi gloss black lacquer and applied it bit by bit over the brown - swirling with a pointed cotton swab in between applications. then a very light spray of clear red and light spray of clear orange to get the desired darkness level. then a couple coats of semi gloss clear. letting the paint dry completely between each step is the key.
  7. Finally got this one wrapped up on Friday. I modeled it after the firebird I want to own someday (bottom of this pic). Can’t tell you how much I loved this kit. It’s basically everything the current Revell 69 Camaro WISHES it could be. The wheels were its only minor weakness - so I replaced them with a set from my mustang 😎 Gonna get some proper Pontiac wheels on it someday. Made a few tweaks - vinyl top, hood vents, exhaust tips, cut up the dash and added an 8-track player with some tunes, detailed the engine a bit, the aforementioned wheels, etc. - but it’s mostly right out of the box. I really hope Revell reissues this one. I want to do it again in a few different styles, and they’re getting pricey on EBay. Tamiya champagne gold, clear, and matte black rattle cans for the bod and top 🤙🏽
  8. love that kit..think it’s time to do another one. great looking car and awesome pics!
  9. Really really nice build. Doing a similar color combo now on a 68 firebird…super sharp 🤙🏽
  10. Thanks - they’re in the photo etch kit from model car garage. I also used them for the side scripts and the one on the trunk. What kit is your model? I’m looking everywhere for that hood but have only found resin copies - unfortunately they were too full of air bubbles to be of any use.
  11. been watching your builds on youtube for a few months now, and each one is exceptional. good stuff.
  12. Ooh that’s the dream. Saw a purple one on the Brooklyn bridge on Friday…that will be me someday!!
  13. It comes in a spray bottle. I just spray some on a microfiber towel, spread it over the car (including the glass) evenly by hand, let it fog up for a few minutes, then buff it off. Keeps everything clean and shiny. I tried it out on a crappy old practice mustang before using it on my newer builds to see if it was any good…see below
