MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I did the same thing with mine. Ended up reusing the kit extinguisher and relocated it to the correct position inside the car.
  2. No one makes the correct R Model dash. I had to make my own for my build of Alan Bolte's 5R101. I think I sculpted the shape out of Tamiya Epoxy Putty. I'm not sure. Also, I had to make my own door panels and the biggest problem you will have are the fender flares. Keep in mind that no two R Models are alike.
  3. #11 and #29 are both the same car. 5R105. Originally, it was painted the Wimbledon White with the Guardsman Blue stripes, and raced by Mark Donohue, who really wanted to be a driver for Shelby American. Unfortunately, he was not selected, so he had 5R105 repainted in Guardsman Blue with white stripes as a protest. Eventually, Shelby got wind of this, and urged Donohue to repaint the car Wimbledon White with Guardsman Blue stripes. I plan to build 5R105, but will be doing the restored version. Legendary Motorcar Co. up in Canada restored this car and 5R100 to concours quality specs.
  4. Do you have photos of the Thunder Valley trans kit? It's required to build 5R105 (The Mark Donohue car)
  5. What did you use to cut the tape for the stripes? They look good!
  6. Can't wait to see how this one turns out. I have the same one that will be built bone stock.
  7. Can't wait to see how this one turns out. I'm still stuck on doing the right rear fender flare on my R Model build.
  8. They look amazing. I will have to try this with my other R Models!
  9. Nice. I would love to do the Mexico car but I may end up doing the restored version or the one in the photo.
  10. Here's the car I plan to build, 5R101. I like how the restored version has two different numbers on it, which is how I plan to build the car.
