MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. several people wanted it. 2 guys REALLY bad https://www.ebay.com/itm/155011348806?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2047675.l2557&nma=true&si=2LjZdXGyTqKeE3TOZ7haIVRvoHI%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc
  2. In case anyone wants one NOW, It can be yours https://www.ebay.com/itm/134068408956?hash=item1f3719927c:g:GmoAAOSwNd1iQmP~
  3. I'll buy a few and I dont care if it has a flat plate for a chassis. Once on the shelf / in the case . I cant see the bottom side .
  4. I have a few original MPC convertibles issues. And I think just one hardtop builder. Same goes for the 69 Coronets Odds are I will not get this new vert. But if they do a hardtop . I will get a few of them for sure
  5. I have a spare uptop thats off an early 61 or 62 Bonneville / or maybe its an early AMT/SMP Impala I think ( dont remember ) Its around here someplace. I tried it on my 59 or 60 Bonneville and it fits like a glove .
  6. Thats very possible, Ive never done any measurements to ck actual scale length
  7. I have a top around here from what I was told was a Revell 59 Impala. I tried it on a few old 58 annuals. and it was to big My kits are still boxed up from a move 3 years ago. SO I have no idea where said top is at right now to dig it out Ive never actually had an unbuilt 59 Impala kit ever. I got the top from someone here several years ago and thats what I was told it came out of . And it was to long and wide to fit the 58 Bonneville I wanted it for . So tossed it back in the box
  8. The revell 59 is 1.24th. Ive tried to fit the top from one on my 58 Pontiac or Buick vert kits. I tossed the idea. I think making one from scratch would be easier than all the cutting it would take to make one of them work and look right
  9. They arent hard to find or big bucks anyway. Do with it that makes you happy
  10. Dont forget . that rectangular plate behind where the power brake booster goes is supposed to be a low gloss black ps, if planning to replicate power brakes. All hemi cars the booster is also a semi gloss black
  11. Neat toy, But with the advancement in drones today. I'm surprised its taken this long for something like this to materialize. There is a small part of me thats fascinated by small manned / powered flight. I for one would love to take something like this up for a day . Just to see the earth we live in a whole different perspective. Myself, I wouldnt mind having one. But at $100k plus assy. Thanks but no thanks I already have an expensive toy in the garage
  12. Thanks for the pics.I was there with my Satellite. There were A LOT of cool cars
  13. If it matters and hopefully im not to late. BUT the stripe should be a lot farther back than that. Almost right next to the side marker bezel just an fyi
  14. From what I can remember seeing some had plates that blocked off the water pump openings in the block altogether ( maybe solid filled ) Some had some kind of piping that ran from side to side with a radiator cap on them to at least put some kind of coolant in them,,, maybe for between rounds cool down sessions I tried to blow up the ops pic but it gets to grainy to really such much detail
