John....what can I say bud!! You have talent and you know I love your work. You never miss the little details. this build is beautiful and you hit it out of the park. Man this is gorgeous. I sure can't wait to see it in person. All I can say is one of these days when I hit up a Southern Cali show. I wanna borrow your famous photo spot and get some great pics with my funny car there ;) . that is if you don't mind. Also as Harry has mentioned Your Alclad work is the best. I sure hope to get great results like you when I go do do mine on my funny car.


Chris.......anytime.......I sure would like to take pictures for you.........I can`t wait to see the "Snake" finished :)

Beautiful work, John. Love the heat staining on the headers. And that steering wheel with the rivets and woodgrain... beautiful. The model could pass as a real car in many of your photos. Another winner from you. No surprise, though.

I know that sometimes people point out when you miss the mark a bit as far as specific details or absolute accuracy, but nobody can deny your craftsmanship. You are a true artist. B)

I'm just blown away with the detail that John puts in his builds... Makes me want to just step on my own models... LOL. Could you just imagine if John Teresi and Bill Geary worked together on a model... The detailing and working features would be mind blowing.

Even if there are many Very talented builders on this forum, I'm huge fan of John's work. Harry said it perfectly. Excellent paint job and nice details in every build you do. That's excellent, just like Juha Airio's builds. Everyone knows that both (John & Juha) build fantastic model cars, but every time I see them, I'm really amazed.

I guess I should pick up my jaw from the floor again.

I really like it John. Another one out of the ballpark. One quick question, Why did Kurt paint the engine block one color and the waterpump another? It seems a little odd. However I understand its his car and he can paint it any way he wants to. Just a curiosity I have.
