MCM Avid Poster (5/6)

  1. I've just had a look at the body shell on the one I have in the stash - same problem. I think Jim is right about the use of coloured plastic. I built a test shot of the new Revell E-type coupe and there were no issues at all but when the kit came out moulded in glossy red plastic it was a different story. I wonder if the Targa version of this kit has the same issue, since the body is moulded in red.
  2. Well, what would we expect from you Donn? Brilliant, as always!
  3. McLaren Models, an online shop based in Falkirk, has a good range of AMT kits at very competitive prices. I have also used Jacksons Models (based in Wigton) and Yanks (John has recently returned to the model scene after spending some time at 1/1 American shows - yanks.org.uk) in the last month. Andy Swindlehurst is still trading and has an online presence (model-cars.ueniweb.com), he is usually at Scale Model World in Telford and the Halifax show (but I don't think the Halifax show is running in 2022).
  4. This is an excellent little rod which all flows together nicely and shows how much thought has gone into it. A slice of originality and more details to catch the eye each time you view it certainly adds up to a stand-out model.
  5. Very nice Corvette, I also like the wheels you have chosen and the colour combination. I moved to Canada when I was 6 in 1971 and back to England in 1985 so C3 Corvettes are what I think of when I first visualise a Corvette and yours captures the image I usually have perfectly.
  6. Thanks for that Nick, you've done an outstanding job of it.
  7. I'm sorry to hear that Lee, I was looking forward to catching up with you and seeing some of your builds.
  8. Lovely build of an all-time classic. I'm also wondering how you did the chrome trim, it looks excellent, what did you use?
  9. Great hot rod Lee. I'm hoping to see it at Telford in a couple of weeks.
  10. Fantastic fabrication work resulting in a different and striking build set off with excellent paint. I really like it!
  11. NIce build of a C3 Corvette. I like the way you have replicated a specific car - down to the telephone on the console. Having grown up in Canada in the 70s and early 80s my first image when I think "Corvette" tends to be a C3. The rebuild you have done has definitely taken the model to a higher standard.
  12. Nice build that really captures the time period it has been built to represent.
  13. Nice Jaguar! Bill - the new Revell Jaguar E-types are 1962 (Series 1), you can tell this by the sunken footwells and aluminium trim on in the interior. The decal sheet has 1961 registration plates but they are incorrect.
  14. Looking forward to it! I really enjoyed the last issue, it was great to have a new Model Cars Magazine to read. 🙂
  15. Great job on the C8! I’m not sure about the Corvette as a mid-engined car but you have to admit it is a good car.
