MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. You guys always got the best advice on here. I think I’ll try the ipa on a seat belt that came with the kit, so far the purp isn’t working on exterior or interior painted parts. Thanks Guys👍🏽👍🏽
  2. So I’m working on this rebuilder I scored off of eBay. I really liked the color I found it in but no luck finding anything exact. I did manage to mix one up somewhat similar that I like & am going with. however I’m having a hard time stripping the old paint off. I’ve had it sitting in purple power for two days now with no luck. I’m thinking of using brake fluid but I’m concerned about it being to harsh on the 60 year old plastic. ill post more photos as I make progress.
  3. Yes sir. I think there’s 3 different versions with one of them being the ‘53(mines a54)I think one of them comes with straight axle suspension for a gasser type build. Here’s the box art for mine(I snagged the inline 6 from the box on the bottom, this kit came with a 409 big block)
  4. Thank you👍🏼I kind of like the hot rod look depicted on the box & thought of building it that way but ultimately I went with lowrider.
  5. That would be pretty cool. Would like to see others build this kit. I wish revell would re release it.
  6. Thanks. It’s a good looking kit but it isn’t perfect. The door panels are just a little difficult to get lined up and the front bumper is ugly. Thankfully this kit came with two different styles of rear bumper. I used one of them for the front. They’re pretty common on eBay. If you persistently look them up you can find one at a decent price.
  7. Well she’s done, came out ok I think. I still have a couple of minor touch ups to do on the bmf foil. The trim lines were pretty faint on this old revell which made it a bit of a pia but oh well.
  8. Thanks guys. Going to start bare metal soon followed by clear.
  9. That blue on the nova looks beautiful👍🏽👍🏽 the cuda as well.
  10. Here’s a few update pics. The tamiya white laid out on the roof beautifully but the black looked crappy. It was full of what looked like pin holes. I wet sanded it it with 2k followed by 3k & it seemed to of smoothed it out pretty good. I’m about done with the interior, laid some water decal seat patterns I got at NNL west a few years ago though I did manage to lift it in a couple spots while trying to clean up the loose flocking with tape. trying to find some bullet hole decals to lay on the trunk lid but everything I’ve found is 1/35 scale and way over in Ukraine oh well.
  11. Thanks espo. for the fuel filter& line I used, I think they’re called diodes for computers and other electronics. I bought a pack that had like 20 for around $5
  12. It sure does though I should of used thinner wires, I might redo those.
  13. Here’s a little before photo I forgot I had.
