MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I so hope the full bumper Camaro does well and encourages AMT to do variations on the tired reissues they've been pumping out. I would love to see a 1977 Firebird Esprit and Rockford base version. I'd love to see the MPC Pinto hatch and wagon backdated to a small bumper version and of course the same for the Vega if it's still around. How about the Caprice backdated to a 1971? The Chevy and Dodge vans would be great as 1971s as well, bonus points if they offered the window van option as well. So many others come to mind.
  2. I've been thinking the same thing. I have a lots of ideas I would love to try an I'd love to get them all without paying collector's prices.
  3. My only issue with the 924 kit is that the bumpers don't seem to have a positive attachment. I ended up adding plastic behind to hold them in place. It's a simple and fun to build kit, the lines are good and the only other 924 I know of was a Japanese offering and I've heard it isn't accurate.
  4. The bright green 911 is on some aftermarket 19 inch wheels and tires and the solid grey one is on 17 inch steel wheels and low profile tires. They are also lowered about 1/16th of an inch as well. The bright yellow one is box stock. The only body modification was removing the whale tail on the grey on to make it look more like a base model.
  5. I can't believe it's been since 2016 that I started this thread. I still collect these kits when I come across them. I still haven't gotten the Capri, but I have most of the others. Since Porsche's are my favorite, I have a lot of them. I currently have one 924 built and about 5 still unbuilt and the 911s I have 5 built and a whole bunch unbuilt. In the multiple picture, the green, the yellow and the grey one are all the Monogram kits.
  6. I love all things Porsche, so these kits will be a must have for me!
  7. A couple of lights on the front and you've got a ride fit for chasing down Doc Brown! I'll be getting a couple of these,
  8. I've been away from modeling due to juggling a new job and rehabbing an 80 year old house, however when I heard they were redoing the Nova kit, I made a point of buying three of it. That's my way of encouraging and supporting the companies doing good work. I can only hope AMT does the same trick with their old 60-63 Ford F-100.
  9. I just finished a year of gutting and rebuilding a house and we moved in. Assuming I get my hobby area done, I want in. Everything is in storage, so I'm not sure right now what I want to build, but I definitely want to give it a try.
  10. Coming in late to this conversation, but I'm so glad to see this coming out. My dad had one on his shelf when I was little and I've wanted one ever since. For years I would stalk eBay, but never managed to get one. Now if they ever redo the 1958 and 1963 Ford trucks I'll be happy!
  11. He posted on Facebook a few times in the last couple of days. I haven't really talked to him recently. Hope he's doing well, he's a really nice guy and has a good product!
  12. The base kit has been released recently, and someone should be able to reproduce the decals. I don't know if it has the wheels or not, but the paint job makes me want to try hydro-dipping!
  13. I'm way past mocking the kit manufacturers for co-branding tie-ins. Anything that keeps them in business and hopefully gives them enough profit to develop new kits is okay by me. These types of deals allow them to sell to, (In this case) Coca Cola collectors that don't build models, but will buy anything that has the Coke brand on it.
  14. They are like AMT or Revell in that they reissue kits from tools that may be 5 years old or 40 years old, therefore you may get a state of the art kit or one that is just a step above a garage resin kit. Most of the ones that were tooled in the last 30 years or so are good though. Some of the older ones were designed to be battery powered and therefore have little interior detail.
  15. I've used the Short Cuts paint several times and always had good results. It seems to be a fast-ish drying enamel and flows well.
