MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Three window coupe with a GMC V-12 and a .50 BMG? I could see leaving it as is. Maybe different tires.
  2. If you’re on Instagram, there is no escape from this thing. It is posted constantly. The same rendering in different colors.
  3. Oh my. That front end. It looks so much better on the Aoshima box. In the artist’s rendering. Yikes.
  4. I got one of mine. It wasn’t cheap, but I did negotiate it down 20%. I want to get a real one of these. I think it’s a really cool car. Maybe go for a Tim Taylor Edition (more power). Internet photo. Mine is on its way to me.
  5. I made an on/off indicator for the ice maker in my refrigerator/freezer. It doesn’t shut itself off when the container is full of ice, so it’s easy to have it overflowing or to run out.
  6. ‘67 body style? I have one of those. Not sure it’s complete.
  7. Is that a Latham supercharger?
  8. I’ve seen them on eBay several times, when looking for parts for other projects. I never bought any, though. Now that I need some, I hope I can find them.
  9. Ferrari drag car by Bob Norwood in the early 1990s. Fiberglass body. Testarossa engine with a locomotive turbocharger that had the intake side cut off and replaced with a chain drive.
  10. A local shop had it on consignment. Original kit. Not sure if the decals are still good. Engine is partially assembled. Tires need to be replaced. It was fifty bucks. I did ask if it was marked correctly. It was. Wow!
  11. Sounds weird, but there will always be an Italy. I want to build one with the M119 V-8 out of the Tamiya 500SL, to match my full size project.
  12. That’s good to know. I did some more research and it looks like the Esci is not a curbside. They also have a “pre-facelift” model, which is what I have in my driveway. So, cool. I’ll look for an Esci kit. Or two. Maybe more. The police car version looks cool. So does Ayrton Senna’s racing car. And the 2.3-16.
  13. Are they better than the Fujimi/Revell curbside kits? Just curious. Thanks. Lee
  14. Something new or modified in 1/8 scale. For a new kit, a current Camaro/Challenger/Mustang. Maybe a ‘57 Chevy. 1969 Camaro. Modified reissue: 1963 Corvette. The split window is a classic. 1967 427 Corvette is also a classic. 1929 Ford roadster on the Big Deuce rails. The flathead is great, but another new engine would be cool, too. Lots of options for old school engines; early Hemi, OHV Cadillac, Nailhead Buick, Jaguar 3.8 liter inline six with side draft Webers. A modern EFI engine would be cool, too. A Ford mod motor or Coyote with optional supercharger would look pretty cool in that small engine compartment. A 1932 Ford Tudor Sedan would be cool, too. I’m daydreaming, but it’s subjects that I think could sell. Of course I’m not a mind reader, nor can I see the future.
  15. But seriously- Pro/Touring or Pro/Street versions of: Monogram 1969 Torino Talladega. The looong fastback would look cool in either style. AMT 1966 Galaxie 500. Such a cool car. It needs bigger wheels and tires, and an EFI Ford 4.6 DOHC or Coyote. (Doesn’t the AMT Vickie have a 4.6 DOHC?) AMT 1967 Impala. Another long fastback. Large diameter wheels. EFI big block with valve covers that say 572c.i. or 632c.i. Include a second set of valve covers that are smooth, plus decals for them with other displacements or graphics. Pro/Street version would have a rear wing big enough to launch F-18s. AMT 1965 Riviera. A Gentleman’s hot rod. Give it a modern EFI power plant. Chevy LS or Buick 425. Pro/Touring only on this one. New interior. AMT 1966 Riviera. Different body style, and boy does it look nice. Pro/Touring. Give it a nice interior, like something that would come from Chip Foose or Dave Kindig.
