MCM Regular (3/6)

  1. Beautiful collection I see a few in there I wish I had bought over the years.
  2. Beautiful build man! I love hobby design stuff but it is so expensive.
  3. Nice I have a soft spot for the 67 and 68 impala. I used to have a 68 ss 396 that I sold like an idiot 🙄.
  4. I have always wanted a real one of these. Well done.
  5. This build was started as a build for my wife. She told me she wanted me to build her something pink so I went through my stash of kits and decided on this ls430. Originally it was going to be an out of the box build slap some pink paint on it and be done with it. I got the body prepped for paint and then decided to go another direction so back in the box it went. After finishing my wife's project I got back to work on this with the same plan only with a color change (weeeelll that didn't work). The wheels are revell integra type R centers in pegasus aluminum sleeves and the tires from the lexus kit. The interior has been decked out with flocking for the floors the rear seat arm rest was cut out and i made an actual arm rest. I then scratch built a full set vip trays and painted them to look like they are made of wood. The trunk was designed to open so i didn't want it to be empty. I made a full airbag setup with a mirrored enclosure for the two compressors plumbed to a scratch built aluminum tank mounted to a wooden trunk floor to match the the vip trays inside. So this is my simple VIP project that turned not to be so simple.
  6. Stunning build! The Ebbro kits are amazing right out of the box. I built the 72e deluxe for my first Ebbro kit was blown away at how well it went together. I've got three of there others kits on the shelf waiting for me to get to.
  7. Good looking build! It's amazing what crazy concepts have been conceived for indy over the years.
  8. Thanks Tony! These were simple compared to today's fuel cars so the detailing wasn't crazy on this one lol. I a 1/18 scale sprint car I built him also that also means a lot to me too. He spent the last 20 years of his life push started sprint cars at parris auto speedway her in California and I spent a lot of time in passenger seat of the push truck with him over the years. I passed one my builds I built for him on to his sister that she saw and fell in love with so we both something to take care of for him.
  9. Thank you it has been put in a safe place so it can be taken care of for a long time.
  10. He did he told me on numerous occasions.
  11. I'm not much of drag race car builder ever know a lot of the early years of my life were spent at Orange county drag strip. I buit this for a friend of mine that was one of the starters at lions drag strip as suprise ten years or so ago. He passed away last March and his son gave it back to me after his passing so I think it's fitting to post it here for the anniversary of his passing the 20th of this month. It's a little early but hey it's in the right month right.
  12. Looks fantastic! I've got this one in the collection and I will probably be going to indycals for a different livery probably something of the IMSA variety. I currently have the NUNU M8 daytona 24 hours winner on my bench.
  13. I have ordered a couple of times upscalehobbies and there good people.
