MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Oh yes, I can see her face through the face shield.
  2. I went for an anodized aluminum look for the valve covers, so I shot them with Alclad Airframe Aluminum, then Tamiya clear blue acrylic thinned with lacquer thinner. I also applied the clear blue to the injector stacks, but didn’t need the Alclad because they are already machined aluminum. The stacks are Detail Master DM-3295 HOLLY VELOCITY STACKS, from Scale Pro Shop. Here are the engine parts painted up. The alternator and bracket is one piece, so an Alclad shade of aluminum chrome was applied to the alternator, then masked off, and Alclad chrome shot on the bracket. The "carbs" are actually Fireball Model Works FI Tech fuel injectors.
  3. Charles, the tree I had had two front valences and two rear bumpers, so I think you'll get a choice of year. Thanks for the comments, everyone! I think you'll like the kit.
  4. Just completed this Salvino’s Roadrunner sample build for them to display at the NRHSA Convention & Table-Top Expo in Las Vegas this week. Tamiya spray paint on most of the chassis and parts, and Splash paint Petty Blue and 2K clear for the body. Since the kit is not yet released, the decals were a mix of a Power Slide Yesterday’s sheet and miscellaneous Salvino’s decals. You can pre-order from Salvino's now, but will also be available at ScaleProShop.com around November.
  5. Nice project, Dan! I really like the interior tin. Great stuff.
  6. Hi Tim, The motor is simply amazing, and as much as I should know better by now, I'm still speechless. Can't wait to see the rest of it come together. My only wish is that you could finish it sooner than your estimated timeline and get over to the GSL so we can gawk at this in person! Art
  7. This build wasn’t in my queue, but the San Diego Model Car Club and the Las Vegas model car club were doing a joint build off, with each club judging the others entries. It was originally supposed to be a tri-five subject, but they opened it up to any 55-57 Chevy, including trucks and Corvettes, so I thought I would jump in. Unfortunately, I missed that deadline by a mile! And the next one, and the next one! The build is now finished, but I am going to post up a WIP anyway, which won’t take too long because there was a lot of work done towards the end that didn’t get photo documented, but it should be enough to see what went into it. I happened to have this 57 Corvette Gasser kit in my stash, and I thought this would be a great opportunity to showcase all of the Pro Tech, Detail Master, and Model Car Garage (and other) aftermarket parts available on my store at scaleproshop.com. I’ll be calling them out as I go along. It’s funny, because I had this exact kit since I was a kid, but it became separated from me for probably 35 years and I had totally forgotten about it until my stepmom moved and had me come get a bunch of kits she had stored that I didn’t even know about (score!). It was given to me as an open kit when I was a kid, and I hadn’t opened it at all until now. I had no idea what I was going to find inside, but it turned out that all the parts were there, even though 90% of the parts were off the sprues. The only thing is, the engine was just not a good piece, so I went looking for a big block Chevy to put in instead of the small block that came with the kit. I found just what I was looking for in this kit. Started off cleaning up the parts, and modifying the chassis to add a Halibrand quick change rear end, resin cast by my good friend Dutch Gorsha, @dog3models on Instagram. He does great work, so check him out at Instagram if you get a chance. Cut out the old pumpkin. Some of the front suspension pieces were not usable, so I made new ones with brass for a little added strength. More to come!
  8. I love it, Gary. Do you know where you sourced the wheels and tires from?
