"Not a class act" Monte Carlo

16 posts in this topic

Posted (edited) · Report post

This is one of my most recent builds. It's an MPC Monte Carlo. This was in my opinion, not a very good model. The body was warped, covered in flash and not very detailed. I glued down the hood because there isn't much detail to show. I did have fun building it and that's all that matters. I built it to represent a car that has been stolen a few times and abused. It has a busted steering colum, missing stereo and speakers.

I like it! Warped bodies are really hard to work with. Looks like you did a good job on this one!

Looks good. Nice work weathering.

A warped body is the least of the problems with that kit - big blob for a chassis that doesn't fit (and is usually warped too), crummy engine bay...

try Model Empire.....They have the 78' and 79' promos fairly cheap...You could cut the hood out of the promo body and kit bash it with this kit to make a full detailed kit..The hood and everything from this kit WILL work ....That way you dont have to worry about the gap left from cutting the hood out of the promo body......Nice work on the Monte Carlo...It turned out great!

VERY realistic weathering. I think it's the subtlety of the weathering that makes it work. Almost get the feel you could start it up and drive it to autozone! B)B)B)

Very cool build!

Looks like you turned a sow's ear into a silk purse!

Sometimes it's overcoming the kit's failings that makes it more rewarding.

I like the story behind the build. Misssing stereo spaeakers and a messed-up steering column give it a more realistic feel.

Nice job
