MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. It was about the registration number, the original one now owned by Ralph Lauren. One of the executives at Airfix, a Bentley owner, had them change the number to the one he had. They didn't spend the money to make other changes.
  2. Spectacular job. You clearly did your homework.
  3. Bburago made a pretty faithful 1:18 diecast of Rodney Clarke's road-modified T59 Bugatti (actually closer to 1:14). The biggest challenges to accuracy are making the chain assembly for the brakes and the piano wire wheels (I got one of the last sets that were made by the only source I know). However, there are 1:32 kits, available with replacement wheels for the Bugatti Tank.
  4. Bburago has kit versions of their diecasts.
  5. Spectacular. The plaid pattern on the seats is dead-on; how did you make it? It took me a long time to re-create it on my computer.
  6. FYI, the door windows and chrome surrounds on the 1:1 could be popped out of the car, with the vent windows remaining. https://www.hemmings.com/stories/article/1954-57-mercedes-benz-300-sl PS: The windows can be stored in special bags and placed on the shelf behind the seats. My point is you don't have to mess with the windows if you don't want to.
  7. A small warning here. The first edition kit on the left is superb with little to no flash, seams you can ignore, and is molded in the correct color on shiny plastic that may only require a clear coat. The reissued boxing on the right is molded in bright red, and the one I have is loaded with flash and incomplete plating on some chrome parts.
  8. Nice job, and you clearly did your homework. It's a great, accurate kit made with access to the actual car. As for the Monogram 540K coupe, it's not very accurate, and they just made something resembling the hardtop and plunked it down on their convertible version.
  9. Great job on a rare and controversial subject, which JoHan tooled using access to the original car once owned by Carracciola. Now rotting away in an LA exotic salvage yard. https://www.caranddriver.com/features/a15121386/wheels-of-fortune-the-10m-mercedes-500k-that-vanished-feature/
  10. Here's one way to do spats with wire wheels...
  11. Mercedes has designated the money to go into a special scholarship fund. They don't need to part with a jewel in their crown for greed.
  12. I searched International SUV but nothing came up that looked like this.
