MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Here's what's on my bench at the moment. Taking part in a VW buildoff with showdate july 2nd this year! Imai kit with some minor mods, 18" Lemmertz wheels, paint will be stock 1973 VW moss green metallic. Lotsa "wood-work" to the interior....
  2. Very nice save, well done !
  3. 2-part polyurethan based clear will not turn yellow over the years, nor will acrylic clear. Any enamel clear will turn yellow. It's all about chemistry, not product brand.
  4. Cool build I like the fact that you "americanized it" with sidemarkers, looks really great!
  5. Thanks for the pics of your very nice build! They'll be helpful to me when I start restoring my old , incomplete SMP 1911 Chevy
  6. Well, I'll omit all the "motorization-stuff" and put plastic card in a lot of holes in the chassie-pan. But, I will NOT open up the engine lid and I'm not going toi build a better engine. I just took off all that chrome on the engine dummy before I glued it in place. So, this will be a curbside with some extra detailing to the interior (modern stereo) and custom steering wheel.
  7. There's VW build-off going on here in Sweden right now. All attenders build a VW type 1 Bug but can chose which kit they like, even in other scales than 1/24-25. I'm doing 2..... One Showrod and one almost stock , that's the Imai 1/24 scale VW 1303 LS Convertible. This model got it's ID/VIN from a 1973 Sumatra Green VW seen in a swedish TV-series in the late 90's. But, I'll change the color to L95C Moss green metallic and replace the stock 15" Lemmertz-wheels with specially-ordered 18x8" Lemmertz-wheels. It'll also get some small mods to the front Bumpers, get fender-mounted turn-signals and twin pipes on the right side of the muffler. Perhaps I'll give it a nice custom steering-wheel as well.... not sure yet.
  8. Very nice build, paint is absolutely flawless and You really nailed the boxart! Mine will most likely be "rodded"....
  9. WOW! A truly amazing build! I've wanted to build the same thing, but as a woodie, for 30 years but never even got started! This build really inspire me and your picture are really helpful to me and will be saved on my HD. Thanks for showing this!!!
  10. My "Zuchthaus Express" - Kind'a german Paddy Wagon you might say. Belonging to an Asylum in Germany short after WW2 (all fictious of course )
  11. Thanks, yeah it was a real blast to build. I went to bed every night for 4 weeks with a big smile in my face! Yep, It was finished a week ahead of "showtime" ! I believe I put about 100 hours total in this build and a LOT of scratchbuilding was done. Loads of plastic card, Evergreens profiles and stretched sprue used, along with 2 PEZ-dispensers. Unknown source for the chassie as I needed the stock one for something else Interior bucket from AMT 1959 Camino w stock Belvedere dash. The saw and axe in the coffin compartment are 100% scratchbuilt . The trunk "Plymouth-emblem" was cut off and repositioned below the new rear lid.
