MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Building up the body of the dizzy... Base of the cap. A v8 one from the spares bin... more....
  2. I use p.e. parts from Detail Masters as guides for scratch building parts. I glue them to white metal or aluminum stock then file to shape.. This has been epoxied together, with some paint it starts to look like a cast part.. more....
  3. Hi Folks, Andrew, Just trying to fit in here Hey Josh, Thank you but you should see builds of Francis and Codi over in the Drag section!!! Thank you Bruce !! Appreciate the comments Trevor. Hey Brad, Looking forward to coming down for spring training and the DSC! Tim, I really need to get to work but I keep getting sucked in looking at your build threads:) Okay, Next up for this little motor is the rather loooong distributor that comes off the front of the head casting. It even has it's own V notch in the framework. For a 4 banger there are alot of wires going on here. Twin plugs, twin coils and two outside condensers.... I showed the beginnings last update that were mocked up. The gear tower and the base of the spacer that Maserati used... A ref. pic for the spacer from the site of an 1 : 1 English shop that does some really cool stuff "Crosthwaite & Gardiner". The color engine photo above is their work. More.....
  4. WOW Charlie !!! Just wonderful machine work in miniature. This is one of the first threads I check each time I come to this forum. You never disappoint, Randy
  5. Outstanding work Andrew !!! Brad always said you were a pretty fair hand at this modeling stuff:) Randy
  6. Just beautiful work going on here Chris !!!! I have some MFH kits and I am so impressed with your ability to take those bags of white metal bits and make such a great looking model. Truly inspiring. Randy
  7. Looks terrific, always fun to follow along on your builds Mark! Randy
  8. Hi Jim, What a great creation !!! Love the use of 3D printing for this project. Randy
  9. Hey Tim, So glad the eyes are good !!! Been catching up on this one... first off, that rear end is just gorgeous. Loved how you broke it all down to create it. Truly inspiring. Then you went an machined those killer wheels !! Looking forward to more progress on those cool hubs. Have to go back and drool some more. Thanks for the updates my friend , Randy
  10. Hi Folks, Thank you for those kind words Francis. I feel the same when viewing your stunning creations over in the drag section !!! Appreciate it Mike :) Mods...when you get a chance would you move this thread over to the racing section, want to go hang with the cool kids Thanks, Randy
  11. Hi Folks, Andrew, The short answer is yes:) but it needs to be parts of similar size and chemical makeup so you know the melting point. You then work just under that temp with a solder like TIXX. For these parts I'm using epoxy and CA. Appreciate the comment Ben ! Thank you Steve:) Randy
  12. Hi Folks, Hey Pete, That lettering is just a pe part from the scrap box (i think it came from a Profil24 Maser kit?) Thank you Anton ! Daniel, I appreciate your comments. Thank you David. Randy
