MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. Ladies and Gents, This will be the official Lowrider Tour that will cover lowriders. The CBP will go from 10/1/16 to 10/1/17. It will be long enough for all those who wish to participate, and long enough for those who love to take their time on models! rules: 1) must be a lowrider, for obvious reasons. This means, it must have lowrider wheels (spokes).2) you can build it out of the box or you can go all out custom.3) the build must be a brand new build or barely started, please post pictures4) the build will start on 10/1/16 and last through 10/1/175) have fun!we can have public voting or a photo album for all of the cars in the CBP once it's over, and i would even go as far as getting a trophy or something made for the winner.
  2. thanks everybody! first one back in to the hobby after a year or so hiatus.
  3. 100% spray paint. And the one shot stuff at that!
  4. So this is my finished 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air convertible. I wanted to try something between box stock and lightly modified. Only added plug wires and radiator overflow tube. Colors are in the model master lacquer lineup and I used black cherry pearl and Wimbledon white with a pearl clear. The convertible top was a light sand color. I am getting back in to the hobby after a long hiatus, so be gentle!
  5. So I'm going to be building a twin turbo 427 Impala and need advice. i would love to be able to fit some slicks under it, and would prefer to scratch build a chassis for it. I'm not sure how to solder so brass is not an option. So styrene tubes and rods are going to be used. I have never built a chassis, so maybe doing a back-half chassis to fit massive slicks is a good place to begin. Any advice for beginners in this area of building? i want the slammed and raked look to this build. Any other advice or ideas I can incorporate to make this build stand out? I'm fairly versed in model building and some scratch building, just not frames.
  6. i know, crazy bump, but i sent a PM asking for the info on this as the pictures are no longer working.
  7. I can honestly say it's been far too long since I've been around these parts. I still have a lot of models, and might start getting back in to the swing of things. I got to looking at pictures of my previous builds and I'm getting that itch again... How's everybody doing???
  8. Alright, so a good friend of mine has given me the task of building him a tribute build in memory of his father who he says worked on Terry Labonte's Monte Carlo, seen in the 1984 era. Being that his father worked on the cars, and the fact that his father started building the model, he had also written down a couple notes pertaining to correct colors. Specifically, he noted that the roll cage is red and netting is blue. If the cage is red, would the floor and undercarriage also be red? I'm trying to be accurate with the colors on this and need some help. photos for reference: https://www.google.com/search?q=AH-1Z+Viper&es_sm=122&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=GJwaVcDaHouzoQTM6YDYCw&ved=0CAcQ_AUoAQ&biw=1280&bih=920#tbm=isch&q=terry+labonte+1984 thanks in advance for any tips.
  9. Many happy returns, Mark. Hope all is well.

  10. Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that next weekend is IPMS Nationals being held at The Ranch in Loveland Colorado. I plan on being there Saturday to check things out. Let me know if you'll be there!
  11. Ok so I'm in Colorado Springs. Usually every Wednesday and Saturday we meet at hobby town south academy to build. You wanna hang out, send me a pm! Edit: that goes for anybody
  12. When I get back in town I will start a 64 impala.
  13. i had Jameston custom mix a paint for me - the price is awesome for airbrush ready paints, and the paint match is also good. i'm happy with the results so far.
  14. i've seen people use a silver paint pen to paint trim, then BMF over that. apparently it's meant for those cases if the BMF messes up, then the silver underneath offsets that or something.
