MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Wow! Nice picture of the 1:1 car there! Oh wait, that's a model?!?!?!?
  2. This is great! Really love seeing all the details that you're adding.
  3. Been a while since anyone brought this up - this is a great project. Has anyone done a LHD for the old Tamiya Miata/Eunos?
  4. What a boat! I missed this the last time, too. So, looking forward to picking it up.
  5. I think it's one of the coolest "utes" I've seen in a long time - I love these sorts of mashups. Do you have more pictures? In progress shots?
  6. Guess I should have mentioned - I totally buggered the "glass" by trying to tint it with Tamiya smoke. I've had great success with this in the past, but for whatever reason this was diaster and I wasn't able to salvage the kit's glass. So, I cut new pieces from clear K&S plastic sheet. The shiny bits are all Alclad II; although the wheels are as they come in the kit - sort of a flat aluminum plating (which is quite nice). I lost one of the pins for the front wheels, so I fashioned one from styrene rod. Decent, I guess. At least from a few feet away. I ended up stripping the original paint. I used Tamiya red oxide primer and Tamiya light metallic blue for the exterior. If you look closely, you'll see some trash in the paint around the rockers and the tail panel. Since the red oxide shows through slightly, I think it ended up looking like a car that is being driven daily, but needs some work. I decided to let it ride. I have one more of these - in Pace Car markings, although the decals are shot. The Pace Car version includes T-Tops and different wheels. Uhm....?
  7. I've built three of those now - it's a great little kit. I really like your color choice.
