Neal, there should have been a second attachment to the email that was sent to you. The Challenge introduction letter that everyone got has the '48 Woody 'Driftwood' at the top. The actual artwork that is in the envelope is the '41 Chevy Pickup the is shown below.

Both are good ideas. Dave, this is your horse to run, what do you think?

Drew :mellow:



I think Jairus' idea is pretty sound. On other forums that have a 'Community Build' section the members that are involved in the CBP post quick updates of their builds there, then post their in depth updates in separate threads in the 'On the Bench' section.

So if you all don't mind let's go ahead and start separate threads for the actual build-ups and use this thread for general conversation about the Challenge and quick updates. The idea of using the initials of JWAC or TJWAC are very valid and will make it easier to identify the threads that pertain to the Challenge.

For those who are interested in the Challenge keep in mind that this is still in effect a blind draw as to which drawing you will end up with. In stead of each of you being able to grab an envelope out of the stack, I'm doing it for you. That being said there are no guarantees regarding what piece of Jairus' Artwork you might end up with. It may be something right up your alley or it may be something that causes you to stretch your boundaries as a model builder. Also, if you would like to participate, please be so kind as to either email me or send me a PM. Just working through the PMs and emails of the past week I have not gotten any building done at all. I don't mean to be difficult but if you want to participate please make the effort to contact me do not expect me to make that effort for you. I don't mean to be the north end of a south bound horse but help me out here guys.

When you get the return email, there will be 2 attachments one will be a MS word Document which is the introduction letter to the Challenge. The Introduction letter is titled 'The Jairus Watson Artwork Challenge - participant' There will be a second attachment that will be a .jpg file that will have the title of the piece of Jairus' artwork that is in the envelope that was drawn for you.

Thanks
Fletch

Tony, I will send you a PM via MCM forum of the car once Dave tells me what it is. I have 99% of the art here in my computer or in the drawer. Easy to scan and put them on my Fotki and post you a PM of the image. That work?

What would have or could have been the motor in this purple ford I have here? I was thinking hemi, but maybe you can help Jairus? Jody

Jody, the engine in the '53 Ford is whatever you want it to be! Hemi, Slant 6, Pinto 4 or 350 crate motor or flathead. The look here is what you are trying to attain. That would be the paint, detailing, wheel covers, stance, top chop (If that applies) are all the little details your build will be judged upon. That car could even be a curbside if you so choose, however if I had to say what was in Neil's pickup it would be a duel or triple carb straight six with a split exhaust manifold and duel exhaust. Speed parts can found in Galaxie's fine Chevrolet kits. :-)
In the 53 Ford lowrider.... a 1959 300 hp Thurderbird 352 Special V8 with three deuce carbs!

Jairus

Tony, found your message, for some odd reason the PM function does not work when trying to contact you. Anyway, you should have the Intro letter and drawing in your email inbox.

There seems to be some confusion regarding the Introduction Letter. The artwork at the top of the Letter the 'Driftwood' rat woody IS NOTpart of the Challenge.

Posted ImageHosted on Fotki

The 'Driftwood' rat Woody was build by Jairus a few years ago. With that in mind I felt it would be inappropriate to include it in the Challenge. So, it was chose as the artwork for the top of the letter. My apologies for any misunderstanding this may have caused.

If you contacted me for an Introduction letter and artwork you should have gotten a return email with 2 files attached. Again, those would have been the Introduction letter and a separate .jpg file titled for the artwork that was drawn from the stack for you.

Again my apologies for any misunderstand over what artwork you should be focusing on.

In a way I was dissapointed that I could not built the "driftwood" until I seen some of the prices lol and I begin to feel better about it. I did find the truck im building for about 6 bucks though.

Thanks, Fletch! Got it! Thanks Jairus for the offer as well!

Here's the artwork I drew...titled "'60 Chevfin".

Jairus-If I can ask what the description read that would have gone with the artwork. The changes are subtle, and I love it!!

Tony, Here is the copy as sent to SAE and published in Oct 03:

Chevrolet Impala by Revell/Monogram is a beautiful kit with tons of detail and crisp molding. I have slammed it to the ground on a set of wheels from the Revell kit the “Sidewinder” pickup. All badging is removed and paint is a glossy Maroon with a white/ivory roof and “contrail” inset. Taillights are replaced with 6 1959 Cadillac bullet lenses, which can be found in a variety of places: Old releases of AMT ’57 Ford, R/M 1959 Cadillac (big surprise), AMT re-release ’64 Mercury Maruder kit as optional custom parts.

Awesome, thanks, Jairus! Much appreciated. I just ordered the Revell 2 in 1 '60 Chevy from my LHS! Now, to find the rest of the parts (wheels and taillights), and think about an appropriate power plant!!

Anyone have a set of Revell "Sidewinder" wheels they might like to make a trade for?:lol:

Weeeellll... those are Olds "Festia" caps...

... and they are only found in the last two releases of the Revell 1959 Galaxie Skyliner kit. I would think someone out there in TV land might have an extra set, or else you could simply use some alternative wheel cover.

Here is a set of them on a little rod I was building a while back.
