MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I don't know which is more impressive, your model making skill or your artful photography. Either way, you remain a true master.
  2. This remains my favorite thread David. I am going to follow your latest build of the '57 with greatest interest.
  3. This is among the best threads I have ever seen on this forum. I am going to show my 9 and 11 year old girls this whole thing in the hopes that we can follow in your footsteps. Thank you for sharing and I will look forward to seeing more of her work.
  4. Really it is. I'd be interested to see how it would look after the Dann Tier treatment.
  5. It's a Pyro 1/32 with about 50-60 parts. Thanks for the compliment!
  6. Exactly. I'm still debating whether I want to attempt to paint the fender mouldings. Right now I am thinking no.
  7. I found this in my stash. Someone started it years ago and never finished it. They brush painted it so I could have stripped it and started over, but why? Instead I decided to finish it as is and enjoy it. Two hours of work later here is the result. Clearly not a show winner, it was a fun quick build.
  8. Holy smokes! Does anybody know how much work you are seeing here? These represent a truly Herculean challenge as these are both models that do not exist in a box. Right hand drive, custom bumpers, scratch built hood panels, rerouted exhaust, scratch built interiors, hand laced wheels, and on and on. These are nothing short of fabulous! I am absolutely blown away by one...but two one-offs? Amazing work here.
  9. Your work on this office is sublime as always. Your thread remains my favorite place to visit, even as I gradually exit the hobby.
  10. Very, very nice. These are some of my favorite kits ever made and (obviously) build up beautifully. Yours looks fabulous!
  11. That came out beautifully. You have good reason to be proud if it!
  12. I just added one last month. It is my first real "capital C Classic" convertible.The car is a 1937 Cadillac Series 70 convertible sedan with a Fleetwood body. I saw the car for sale in St. Louis advertised on Craigslist. I took a gamble on it, purchasing it sight unseen but with tons of photos. Not a perfect car, it was still really nice for a car that was restored in 1963. It needs a few things before I can drive it but will be a wonderful show and go vehicle.
  13. David, I will look forward to it! You may have seen in another thread that I am looking to make much of an exit from the hobby. While I really enjoy it, I have developed a bit of a benign tremor in my right hand (probably a result of using power tools for years) which severely limits my ability to do quality work, and the models I have finished lately have proven to be a real disappointment to me in terms of quality. As a result of the tremor, i am going to severely cut the number of projects to perhaps 6-10. At the rate I build models that still represents 5-7 years of building! The other reality for me is I am trying to focus my interests and limit the amount of space my hobbies take up. To that end, I remain interested in model cars but will only own/display a few. I plan to sell off/give away the remainder of the models so I can have a fighting chance of getting other things (like my 1:1 scale '37 Cadillac, and my collection of regular wheels Matchbox cars) done to my satisfaction. Leaving the hobby or not, I will continue to look in on you once in a while. And included in my "final 10" likely will be a British vehicle or two. All the best to you, Eric
