MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Decided to work on the left rear flare and shape it. Used Evergreen #107 styrene strip, sanded to shape, and Tamiya epoxy putty was used on top, and the shape was carved with a clay tool.
  2. Wound up using a suitably sized half round to enhance the rear valence. Used Tamiya Polyester 2 Part Putty, and feathered out with a putty knife. Will be sanded smooth.
  3. What did you do for the Yenko decals? I need to get some
  4. Well, I wasn't happy with the way the body was coming out, so I started over. We've all been there, and I'm sure you know the saying "s--- happens", and I ended up getting a new body and rear valence panel. I just need to know how to make the rear valence look like a two piece unit that is up to par with the real thing. I tried using that Tamiya 2 part epoxy putty and it actually separated from the panel, causing my part to not be flush. I will provide pics of the new body, and what I am trying to achieve before I put the license plate on. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
  5. Thanks guys! Right now, I'm trying to figure out the bumps on the rear valence panel.
  6. Okay, guys. I know I've been really hesitant about posting this, but this is my current build, a Monogram 1965 Shelby GT350 R-Model. Shelby American built 36 of these in 1965; the first 2 cars (5R001, and 5R002) being prototypes, and 34 production cars, which were broken up into three batches (5R094-5R108, 5R209-5R213, 5R527-5R540). The car I decided to tackle is 5R101, which is the eight production R Model, and has an incredible racing history. 5R101 was also the most winningest R Model to have competed in vintage racing, racking up 52 wins and 24 podium finishes between 1979 and 1986 with Alan Bolte at the wheel. In 2003, 5R101 was invited to the Goodwood Festival of Speed. Since there are so many different versions of 5R101 throughout the years, I have decided to build the current version of the car. Right now, I am working on doing the rear valence panel, but would like to know how to add the bumps that are under the taillights. So far, I have the interior completed, along with the lines underneath the chassis.
  7. I'm actually going to be doing a somewhat current version of the car. In 1965/66, Briggs Cunningham made a lighter rear deck that is on the car today. After the Sebring 1966 race, Cunningham retired the car, and it was on display at the Briggs Cunningham Automotive Museum in Costa Mesa, until 1987 when the cars were purchased by Miles Collier, who owns the 904 to this day.
  8. How did you get the front valence to fit so flush?! I may need to do this with my build!
