MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. That is the best rendition of this model that I have ever seen, and I've seen some fabulous examples.
  2. Now, that's what I'm talkin' about!
  3. It should have been made in the real world. Your work is excellent.
  4. This started out to be a simple 1959 Chevrolet Bel Air 2 door sedan, but somehow things got completely out of control, and this happened.
  5. This is a 1959 Oldsmobile that I recently acquired. It was already in very good condition, but unpainted, so I repainted it, and did the few repairs that it needed, and put it on display.
  6. Thank you to all of you who have given such kind comments and much appreciated support. I only hope that this has inspired others to attempt something like this.
  7. Race car hauler classic car hauler Light dump truck single drive tractor with Mercury sleeper
  8. That is an amazing piece of family history.
  9. One has to look very close to tell that it's not real. I am totally impressed.
  10. The car dealer is something that I put together to photograph models in. I should put some photos of the dealer on the diorama page.
  11. I've made a few minor changes to how this 1960 Ford Ranchero would have looked when it left the factory.
  12. For the window top frames, I used .040 X .060, fitting them from rear to front for better control of the arch. The middle door frames are made from .080 X .125 strip plastic. .060 would have been a more authentic depth, but the thicker depth gives more support. Remember to give a slight rearward lean at the top. I also sanded both seats semi smooth to make them match better. Seat detail was added with .010 plastic strip. I'm sorry. but I forgot to take pictures of that stage.
  13. It's so real that I can smell the cheeseburgers. You have done masterfully on this work of art.
  14. I think that there are two words that come into relevance for your diorama; nailed it!
