MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I have a Moebius six cylinder that I got in a trade. It's garbage. The rear end of the block is taller than the front and the transmission mounts at an angle.
  2. With all of the 3-D printers going now, surely someone makes one. I did a search. But, all I found were the files.
  3. Thanx Steve! I like doing different colors and styles with different cars. It's a little more challenging as well as rewarding when it works out.
  4. Wow! That's shocking and sad! The man had crazy talent! He always seemed so down to earth. The last video of him I watched, he was allowing his 14 year old daughter Lia drive his AWD Mustang. They were drag racing other cars and she smoked most of them. My sincere condolences to his family. This reminds me of when Steve Irwin got killed by a Stingray. You just don't expect them to go out that way.
  5. We look forward to seeing you do a buildup Tim!
  6. Nice models David! I really like that El Camino! Ever since I saw it the first time, I've been thinking about building one. Nice work!
  7. Thanx Mathias! I'm just trying to push through. I think I've turned the corner with the covid deal. I got the quarter panel back in paint. I took it outside for a photo to see if the color would show better. It did make a difference. Once this is dried well, I can sand it, get a coat of color and a coat of pearl on. I shot a coat of pearl on the floorpan and really like how it looks!
  8. Welp, I ended the old year and started the new year with covid! Still recovering. I made the mistake of dragging myself out to the garage with the idea of doing a mockup with the Goat. Bad idea! I had forgot that I had to install the floorpan in a different manner than usual. Like an idiot, I spread it too far and cracked the quarter panel AGAIN! So, I glued it again, filled the crack with crazy glue, gave it a light coat of Tamiya White Putty and sanded it smooth. Then I cut a corner out of a piece of paper, held it just off of the body and shot a coat of primer. Once it's ready, I'll sand and shoot a couple coats of color, sand and shoot the whole thing. Minor setback. But, it's still annoying. Especially when I did something stupid to cause it. At least I didn’t have to strip it and start over!
  9. A trick I learned a long time ago when I worked in a body shop is to use a guide coat over primer. I'll spray a coat of gray and mist a coat of white over it. When I sand, any imperfections will show.
  10. That is a really nice looking Roadster Steve! It has a look that's timeless! It's too bad Revell didn't see fit to engineer their kit so that it could have a hood and fenders. They really make this model!
  11. Nice combination of models Bernard! Those Jaguars are really nice looking!
  12. Very nice and clean models Tommy! I like the yellow on the Parklane. What's the name of the color?
  13. Wow! You weren't kidding when you said you had a productive year Bob! Cool stuff!
  14. Looks nice in that color Steve! The MRC Cragars suits it well also. This kit does have a fitment issue with the grille and tail panel. I cut the lip at the bottom of the trunk lid away and it helps a lot. On the grille I cut the bezels back to the mold lines and then hit them with a Molotow pen.
