Weekend of Weird-Ass Crap- Mohs Model

Robert Emslie December 15, 2012 In General, Weekend Edition 7 Comments

What’s the weirdest, most bizarre, and possibly rarest car in the world? If you said the Mohs Ostentatienne Opera Sedan then you would be correct. If instead you said the Mohs SafariKar. . . well, you’re so close, better luck next time. 

The thing about any of the Mohs models is that as they were the invention of a single man – Bruce Mohs, founder of the Mohs Seaplane Company – which resulted in their being unlike any other vehicle on the road. That seriously limited their appeal in the broader market, constraining production to but a small handful – like four cars in total.

Who might want to create more Mohs’? Well, this modeler, who while not working in full size dimensions, does seem to be creating models that are somewhat working. Check out the two videos after the jump of his Mohs models in progress. Freaky!

    Since I have no idea why Mohs built one in full scale, I am equally surprised that anyone would undertake building one in 1:25 scale. But I'm very pleased that both people did.

    This Mohs car is really something else. Its instrument panel was 24ct gold inlay and walnut trim. The floor had Ming dynasty carpets.

    • No whale penis leather interior, no sale.

        That's ALWAYS a deal breaker.

        I think Mrs. Whale might have something to say about that.

  • Now that is a serious scratch built modeler…

    Holy crap.

    Mind: boggled by awesomeness.

    If should ever find myself with the budget to be a crazy person, I'm getting a Mohs.
