MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Yours looks great, Curtis! Paint finish looks flawless! I doubt mine will turn out as nice. I did it in black so I wouldn't have to do all the trim in black. Thanks for your comment!
  2. This is an old Revell kit that I got at a Model Contest raffle. It was donated by the Tri-City Modelers. I was unfamiliar with this group and so I googled it and apparently they are an R/C Aviation Group. I am not sure still what three cities they are from but I want to thank them for their donation that I am going to build. I started by painting everything on Friday, then rubbed out the body, built the engine and detail painted the interior with a brush. No decals in this kit other than license plates and three turbo markings so I had to do some dry brushing, etc. in the interior. So now all I have to do is wheels, windows, chassis and finish. Pretty simple No. 2 kit but it will be out of the closet! Thanks for looking! 😎 Initial box and painting Rubbed out body Finished interior (engine finished too)
  3. Thanks, again, everyone! I appreciate your comments! 😎
  4. Thanks, All! I appreciate your comments! 😎
  5. Really turned out nicely, Bob! The paint is beautiful! Nice work all the way around! 👍😎
  6. Nice looking GTO! I like the color and the wheels. Nice work! 👍😎
  7. Looks good, Mike! I've built that one too and I thought it was an excellent kit. I still have one in my stash. I have used Tamiya metallic orange on a hardtop to simulate that color and it is very close. Nice work on your soft top! 😎👍
  8. Looks great, David! I also really like your garage scene. I'm going to have to build one of those. Nice work on your Mustang! 👍😎
  9. Looks good, MrMike! I like the color! 👍😎
  10. This is an old Monogram kit that has been rolling around in the closet for years. I finally got it out and finished it although It had some missing parts that I must have borrowed over the years. I painted it Dupli-Color Flash Red and the interior was painted with an old can of WalMart Fire Red, a little darker color red. I added a horn button to the steering wheel and a turn signal indicator lever to the column. The taillight panel was scratched from parts box 69 Camaro taillights. Plastic strip was added in the middle for the Dodge decal. Added plug wires and heater hoses to the 340 six pack engine. Wheels, hubcaps with decals, and decals for the tires are from Fireball Modelworks. the exterior decals are from the kit and were hard to apply and wanted to fold under since they have been in an unwrapped box for years. Everything went together well although the hubs had to be added to fit the wheelbacks and the taillights took a little bit of thought and work too. All in all, I think it came out pretty well. Thanks for looking! 😎
  11. Thanks, All! I appreciate your comments and suggestions. It was tight but I went with the steelies. I guess I am too old school! This one is done! Final photos are in Under Glass! Thanks for looking and thanks for commenting! 😎
  12. So I did an extensive search of my tires and wheels parts boxes ( I have two scrapbooking cases full of tires and wheels) and came up with some wheel backs and some ideas on wheels for this build. I didn't find much that I liked. I still have the tires from the kit so I thought I would use them. However, the tires are Goodyear GT Radials that should have the outline white lettering which I am loathe to do. Then I remembered that I had purchased steelies and dog dish hubcaps from Fireball Modelworks. They would be perfect! So I painted the wheels and wheelbacks. I had previously painted the hubcaps with Alclad but it didn't come out chrome. So I re-painted them with a bright aluminum. While they were drying, I used a set of Fireball Goodyear Polyglas GT decals on the backside of the Goodyear GT Radial tires. Once everything was dry I assembled the wheels and hubcaps and applied the decals for the hubcaps which came with them. I like these much better for this build. My wife says they are ugly so I know i am on the right track! Let me know what you think. Thanks for looking! 😎
  13. Thanks, Carl and David! I appreciate your comments! This is a mock-up of the wheels, tires, and rotors. The wheels and tires came from the 2009 Challenger, I think. Nothing is glued on yet and I need to adjust them inward a little bit. They look a little big for this body to me. I could use a set of keystones on some regular tires or maybe just painted wheels with some dog dish hubcaps. What do y'all think?
  14. Engine is done. Added plug wires and scratched a coil. I'll add heater hoses once installed in the body. Thanks for looking! 😎
