MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Pretty sure it's in LA. He goes there during breaks in the F1 season to decompress. The second season? of Drive to Survive shows him there with his trainer.
  2. Engine bay installed and lined up. I need to do some cosmetic work underneath to tidy it all up, but pretty happy so far. I decided to gut the interior and go with a stripped down interior, printing now on the printer. Almost ready for some paint. More tomorrow.
  3. For the glass I ordered in some clear resin. The files come with "glass" so I'm going to try, for the first time, to print the glass out in clear then I'll sand and polish it then UV clear coat it to see how it turns out.
  4. How's your Etron coming along? Still plugging away on mine. I got it painted but wasnt happy with the finish, so I wet sanded out some imperfections and still need to sand out some more and repaint the body and the ski box.
  5. No. I've not seen an underside shot of the new Mustang yet. The designer just did a flat bottom with some ridges as a design, looks like the bottom of a GT3 car basically. I'll have a pic up in a bit of the chassis bottom.
  6. Another small update: Front clip is printed, as are the wheels and tires (forgot to take a pic of those) And a shot of the body together....please note I havent done all the body work yet, so the seam at the base on the side skirt will be gone, eventually. Chassis is printing now, will likely take till tonight to get both halves printed, cleaned and glued together, then I can start on working on the ride height, I'll be adjusting it down to sit lower and meaner looking. Still undecided on paint but leaning towards either a pearl white (Tamiya's LP 43) or Ford Viking blue. I want something light so I can contrast the darker plastics rather than have something that's completely dark.
  7. Small update: First file is printed. This is the back 3/4 of the body and I'm super happy on how well it's come out. I can't see any flaws at the moment but I wont remove the supports till I have the front clip printed and cured (it's printing now and should be done later tonight) so I can attach the two halves right away to prevent any warpage of the panels cause they're left "open". I'm not 100% sure on colour I'm going to go with yet, but I have this can of TS-53 Deep Metallic Blue I was going to use on another project (going a different route with that one now). I'm completely open to suggestions too. Now pics of the first print. Comments and criticisms always welcome.
  8. First wip for the year for me and I'm going with this 3D printed 2024 Mustang Dark Horse. Car files https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/game/ford-mustang-2024-dark-horse Brake files https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/ultimate-brake-disc-w-caliper-collection-1-24-scale-model-accessories Tire file https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/michelin-pilot-sport-tire-v2 Please note, I don't sell prints and these files are not mine but can be purchased at the links above. Many hobby shops that sell gaming miniatures now 3D print and offer printing services if you cant find anyone locally. Here are a couple mock up shots in Chitubox slicing software. This was a quick mock up so things might not be 100% aligned. All my files are sliced and ready to print and I started printing last night. Will likely take a couple days to print all the files. All the files in the above mock ups come with the original files except the tires and brakes. The tires in the original files are just generic so I add in some Michelin Pilot Sport Cups as well as some slotted and drilled rotors and branded Brembo brakes to add some more detail. This is a curbside kit, I have the files for a Coyote v8 but I don't feel like getting into making an engine bay. Just wanted a quick print/paint and build kit. Thanks for looking.
  9. My R34 Skyline arrived a few days ago so I jumped right into the project. First up was to remove the hood, and removed the stock engine base and transmission from the chassis pan. I also decided to 3D print a bunch of parts, engine bay...and some accessories. Single turbo RB26 engine.. As well as some brakes and new seats. Engine bay is printed now, Engine and brakes files are currently printing and should all be done tonight. Files for detail parts are as follows: Brakes: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/ultimate-brake-disc-w-caliper-collection-1-24-scale-model-accessories Seats: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/recaro-pro-rms-racing-seat-in-1-24-1-43-1-18-and-1-12 RB26: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/nissan-rb26-rb30-hks-single-turbo-1-24 Engine Bay: https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/engine-bay-nissan-skyline-r33-r34-gtr-nissan-skyline-1-24 Time to get some parts clean up. Up first is the engine bay removed from the supports then grafted to the chassis (which needs to be cut down around the wheel wells and firewall. Hoping to have that done tonight. Thanks for looking in.
  10. I'll come out and play... Just ordered this one, so still awaiting delivery but I think this will be a good kit to start with. I've got files for an engine bay and an RB26 engine I can 3D print along with some interior items I can add too, but outside I'll keep it pretty stock looking, cause it's already a wicked looking car without any help, IMO probably one of the best looking cars from the late 90's early 2000's. Since the outside will be stock(ish) to give it a bit more personality I think a custom colour will be in order. I found this shot recently and thought the colour really makes this car pop. So I'll be going with something like this. Not sure if I'll go black or bronze on the wheels, as both will look good. Lots of great progress on some really cool builds already and only 2 weeks into the year. Looking forward to seeing what everyone comes up with this year.
  11. Easy. Revell USA produced the C7R and C6's both the R's and the street versions as well as the C5's, 4's etc that's why they're in 1/25th scale. 1/25th scale is a US scale really, no manufacturer outside the US using that scale, they all use 1/24. Tamiya, Aoshima, Fujimi, NuNu etc etc etc... The new C8 is being done by Revell Germany and everything they put out is in 1/24 , I know they did the C7R in 1/25 but that was with the US molds and was done in China same as many other cars originally done by Revell USA but reissued by Revell Germany ( I've got the 2013 Boss 302 Mustang I just got from Revell Germany in 1/25th, but it was originally done by Revell USA). Going forward I image all new cars are going to be in 1/24 unless its a repop of a US mold, I don't think they(Revell) are designing anything in the US anymore.
  12. Looking good. This is what I'm going to be doing as well with my Etron. I like the wheel choice you went with. There are several different pics floating around with different wheel sets. I was going to do this too, but there's a nice set of 3D wheels with Ken's 43 on them now available that I'm going to be using on my Etron. Looking forward to seeing you're finished result.
  13. I'm sure everyone knows by now what happened to Ken on Jan2/23. One of my favourite 3D wheels designers has put out a set of wheels honouring Ken and is free to download, so if you have a 3D printer follow the link and get yourself the files. https://cults3d.com/en/3d-model/various/ken-block-tribute-wheels-19 I know I'll be using these on my Audi Etron. I had another set of wheels, but these ones are now perfect for that build. Got my files ready for printing. RIP Ken.
  14. I'm working on another C7R kit right now, which is decently detailed, and it only has 64 pieces (not counting decals, of which there is a lot) so 100 piece kit should be very nicely detailed. If it's even close to the Etron it should be a winner. Hopefully, they'll update the parts trees after release and do the Z06 as well. And since they have the licensing with GM now, fingers crossed, for a C8R GT3 next year as well.
  15. I'm glad to see the C8 coming out in some form. It would have been nice to have it early in the year, since the Z06 is already on the road and the Stingray is kind of last years news, but at least the C8 is coming just before the platform is retired. For those that mentioned the 1/24 scale and it not being 1/25 like past Corvettes from Revell, remember that the past Corvettes were done by Revell USA, pretty much all the other manufacturers outside the US use 1/24, and the new Corvette is a Revell Germany release, so 1/24 scale. It looks to be set to be a decently detailed kit, hopefully, but since the Etron was very nicely detailed for a Easy Click kit, I think the C8 will be more that adequate. 07714 Corvette Stingray C8 – 1:24 (NEW TOOL) The all-new Corvette Stingray C8 Coupe is now available in 1/24 scale! This model kit features all new molds and is a must have for any American sports car fan. In contrast to all predecessors in the series, the C8 Stingray has a mid-engine and, with 500 hp, is one of the most powerful Corvettes ever built. With 100 parts, this model kit is perfect for beginners and intermediates. So don't wait any longer and order your Corvette Stingray C8 Coupé today. Multi-part engine Original interior Rotating wheels Just sucks that we have to wait till November.
