MCM Ohana

MCM Ohana (6/6)

  1. I have a box of parts for the Revell Auto Transporter. All wheels and tires present, decals and most ramps. See pictures. I’m looking for a 1/32 Triumph TR4, Airfix. 1/32wire wheels. Anything foreign, or parts. Let me know. Perry
  2. I work in dental and nitrile gloves come in black. There wouldn’t be any large section so you’d have to take smaller squares perhaps and do sections at a time. It’s thin and strong. Perry
  3. There was an article a number of years ago in Road & Track about a 'model builder' that was facinating. It centered on ths builder and his super realistic cars. Turned out, he stole real cars and actually shrunk them down. Wish I had that article. It was very well written. Juha's cars remind me of that. Perry
  4. Looking really nice. How about a bare metal foil surface? That would look sweet. Perry
  5. Very cool. Good for her, and it's a nice clean build. Something I'm still working at doing. Perry

    AMT '69 Corvair

    I did like it. It was a Monza, with a 3 speed on the floor. Pretty sporty for a kid in high schrool. Perry
  7. Yeah, FDS are not really great quality. Same or worse with John Day. Great progress and they can be made to look great. A set of BBR wires would dress it up. Perry

    AMT '69 Corvair

    Very nice. I did the same thing with the '69. Mine was a '65 and it was a four door. Had to do some surgery. Used a '67 Camaro top. Close enough. Mine I got for $75, only needed a battery. I sold it a few months later for$150 to the neighbors so I could buy a TR4. The right front wheel fell off it after I sold it. Kind of awkward with the neighbors for a while. Now I have to do a TR4. Perry
  9. Some more progress. Tameo kits are engineered well, and go together like Tamiya kits, just smaller. They are intense, need to only work on it a few hours then walk away. There is photo etch sides to the cockpit, and the brakes are made of 6 pieces. I like the vented detail. Hard to see. Perry
  10. I have 2 sets of 1/18 scale low profile tires, measure 1 1/8" OD, 5/8" ID, 5/8" wide. Also, a set of drag type wheels and tires, with axles and brakes. Let me know what you have. Common domestic kits, partials or builts OK, AWB Mustang decals, Foreign stuff. Perry
  11. It is 1/43. I am trying to get better at clean building. I have to have patience, and use tools. Perry
  12. Starting work on the Tameo Williams FW07, Regazzoni. It’s pretty simple, no engine. Nice detail and fit, typical Tameo high quality. The green decal looks all wrinkly but it looks great in person. Perry
  13. Let me check. I may have a spare. Is it like the McLaren M23 style? What is it closest to in diameter and width. Perry
  14. That really came out pretty. Nice job. Perry
