MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I'll see if I can make something happen this weekend.
  2. Thanks, I really appreciate the compliment! I still have the mold for the lights, but my clear resin is bad. I've been trying to get some non-UV blocking silicone so I can make them with UV resin for clarity and so they don't yellow. When I get that sorted out, I will also be doing popular tail lights for kits that come with solid red and chrome lights, so as to provide a clear paintable piece that can correctly represent clear and amber lenses on cars with multi colored tail lights, like most pickup trucks that have the reverse lights in the tail light lense.
  3. So...I don't guess I am understanding how you are mounting the trans to the engine. If the trans is cut loose from the engine, the new engine should be just as far forward as the one that just came out. I get the Taurus intake is bigger. I guess I'll have to build a Ranger SHO to find out. Keep the good work coming!!
  4. I made it from a couple of AMT 1995 regular cab kits. Unfortunately there's no other Ford ranger kits available other than the AMT 93 regular cab STX, 93 Splash, 95 XL (Coca Cola), 95 XLT, and the AMT long bed 4X4 promo.
  5. Started with the engine and got the interior done. I'm using the Monogram SVO Mustang 2.4 Turbo engine. Made a new intake manifold from styrene and aluminum tube. Made the bench seat from a F150 fit. I know the split is on the wrong side, but it's been 23+ years since I owned the real truck, so I just didn't want to be bothered to build an accurate seat. LOL I've also done some work on the side glass. Seems like it worked out ok. Now I hope t isn't another year before I post more progress. Lol
  6. So a LONG time ago, I started a project of an extended cab Ranger to replicate my 1:1. As many of our projects go stagnant, it went on to the shelf of doom, not to see the light of day for about 20 years. Well, as skills and building materials improve, I resurrected the old codger, finished the roof, made a game plan for the side "glass" and finished the body. I stretched out the chassis, interior pan, and body using two kits, then modified the door panels for the interior using those fake credit cards and strip styrene. Made molds of everything and cast up a few sets. So today I have made visible progress. Lowered the rear suspension, painted some stuff. So I had to check the ride height. I hope to have the drivetrain sorted out soon so I can start with the details. I'm kinda stoked about this one. Hopefully it doesn't take as long as the SVO did! Thanks for looking!
  7. The Venom 180SX paint by Alexander Jurck, built by me.
  8. It is. Airbrush and hand painted details. I am trying to find the YouTube video he posted of the progress.
  9. My good friend, Alexander Jurck, posted he would trade a paint job for a Moebius F100, so I sent the truck and a freshly re-primed 180SX. We decided that VENOM would be the theme, and he did his magic. It is all airbrush and detail painted by hand.
  10. My God has it already been a year+ since I updated this! Well, I'll have to get on it then. Such a huge surprise for those who haven't seen it yet. MAJOR update coming this evening!
  11. Looks great Joe! You going to bring it to Oklahoma and show it off?
  12. That's something from the old speed racer cartoons. Looks amazing! I never knew Shelby and DeTomaso did a project.
