MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. The Perry's grill looks so much better than Jo-han's. Perry's also had the four door Taxi body for Gapp and Roush.
  2. I'm impressed by the builds in this thread. Truly inspirational.
  3. Looks like you parked in the wrong part of town. Inexcusable.
  4. I'm looking to trade a Moebius Golden Commando car which is open for a Moebius altered wheelbase A F/X. Decals and body are not make it/break it for this project. I'm needing the interior, engine and chassis for a project.
  5. The Unimat 3 was discontinued when the Unimat PC was introduced. The PC was a nice machine with some weird idiosyncrasies. The PC was designed as a hobbyist lathe that could be easily adapted to CNC using Emco's proprietary software. It was rather pricey. Overall the PC was a more robust machine than the 3/4. The power feed was very well engineered. The biggest failing was a bespoke VDO motor that was nearly impossible to swap for another motor. The Sherline blew it away in the marketplace. The Unimat 4 was pretty much the same lathe as the 3 but introduced after the PC pretty much failed in the marketplace. If I remember correctly, the 3 was made in Europe and the 4 in Taiwan. It is disappointing the PC failed. It was a very nice piece of equipment that with a few engineering flaws.
  6. I have not used it but have seen others use it for bodies of 1950's rods and earlier. Gives a nice low level shine that seems more appropriate to that era than some other paints.
  7. There's so many nice things here. The engine looks like a stock Ford installation. The wagon conversation is also very nice.
  8. Moebius has quickly become one of my two favorite kit manufacturers.....just need the gasser released.
  9. It would have been interesting to be in the meeting where these were discussed. "So we've got 10,000 Wynsjammers molded up but no one is buying....What can we make with them?"
  10. I think the weathering is very good. My eye is drawn to the transmission......looks dead on.
  11. The paint is very nice.....the metalflake looks in scale. Great job.
  12. Where's the model? If not for the background I'd think it was a nice restoration. I'm curious about what you considered rubbish.
  13. There's so many nice things here. The engine looks like a stock Ford installation. The wagon conversation is also very nice.
