MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. When I need to make license plates for my builds, I use the foil (lead/aluminum?) that seals the neck of wine bottles - the ones with corks, not the screw caps. It is nice and thin and very malleable. I simply soak it in lacquer thinner to remove the outside paint and then apply the license plate using white glue or canopy glue. Sometimes I will substitute and use double sided tape to secure the plate. By using this method, it gives me the option of making the plate look untouched or I can damage it by slightly bending and twisting the foil. Also, I go online and use Acme License Maker to make personalized plates. I copy the original plate and then reduce that by 50% and then reduce that again by 50% and that gives me a plate suitable for 1/24 and 1/25. Now you have a reason to have a glass wine while you are building that next masterpiece. Enjoy!!
  2. A year and a half in Germany many years ago spoiled me on domestic beers. My go to is St. Pauli Girl or Grolsch. For dark beers you can't beat Guinness Stout.
  3. Very impressive foil work on a beautiful build. I like it.
  4. Great paint job and good job on the bright work.
  5. Beautifully done and great paint job.
  6. I agree with everyone else, nice build!
  7. Beautifully done and the paint is excellent.
  8. Looks good. The boyfriend should be very happy with it.
  9. Nicely done! Gotta love the old woodies!
  10. This might be a BIG request, but I am in need of a complete chassis and suspension set up for a 1967 Mustang. Either of the 1/25 AMT/Ertl 1967 Mustang Fastback or the 1967 G.T. 350 would work. I do not need the wheels, wheel back or tires. I would prefer an unpainted and unassembled unit but will consider a clean rebuilder. For trade (see photos) I have the custom wheels and tires out of the 1/24 Revell '70 Boss 429 Mustang 3'n1 Motor City Muscle, kit #85-2149. Also, the Wright Creations, Co. Truck Tool Box 9 Piece Model Kit in 1/25. This kit is still in the original bag, that has never been opened. One piece is loose from the sprue. The kit is injected molded and features a diamond tread pattern on the tool box sides. Any help will be greatly appreciated. P.S. If my trade items are not something you are looking for, let me know what you are needing and maybe we can work out a deal on some other parts or whatever. TIA
  11. Your builds are outstanding and your camera work is very impressive.
