MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Great builds Helmut, if only Hasegawa would re-release their photoetched wire wheels for this kit. Dave B
  2. Thanks for the comments guys. I picked up the remaining decals last night and have now finished it. Back to the 750 Monza!! Dave B
  3. That's a very nice build Michael, tks for posting. Dave B
  4. Hi folks, Marco, yes the first picture is off the printer with some styrene and putty added to start to correct the shape. It was a pretty ordinary file. Gary, the photo etched spokes are Herb Deeks and the rims are modified Italeri 250SWB. Dave B
  5. This is my take on Maserati chassis no. 151.002 but assigned 151/003 for 1964 and I have modelled it based on that years Le Mans entry. It was not a great race for the Maser, pitted on the first lap and lost 2 minutes. It did fight back getting up to third and being the first car to exceed 300kmh during the race, before retiring with a short circuit that could not be traced. It's actually not quite finished as I am waiting on some decals from my mate Phil who printed the body for me, can't hassle him too much!! Considering what I started with I am happy with the outcome and it looks good in the display cabinet with my other front engined racers. Sprayed in auto acrylic, clear coated and polished. Now it's time to get serious on my Ferrari 750 Monza. Tks for looking. Dave B
  6. While finishing off my Maser 151/3 my mate printed me a 750 Monza drawn by our friend. I felt it needed to be a little deeper in the rear so have added a wedge, 2mm to 3mm. Will post again after a little more work is done. Tks for looking. Dave B
  7. Spectacular build Rich, really nice, congratulations. Dave B
  8. Great build Gary, I have the slot car body as well just haven't got around to back casting it yet. Dave B
  9. Hi Andrew, it's 1/24th, the wheels are made up from Herb Deeks photoetched spokes and cut down Italeri rims. Dave B
  10. Final WIP post. Have been busy finalizing body shape and making the mould for the windscreen. Sprayed a clear coat on this morning just to see how it looks, with a polish it will come up fine. Tks for looking. Dave B
  11. Beautiful, what more can I say. Congratulations Bruce. Dave B
  12. Tks, just an auto acrylic I mixed and then clear coated. Dave B
  13. Tks guys, appreciate the comments. The Tipo 151/3 is coming along slowly and I've just got an A6GCS download which is yet to be printed. Dave B
