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.

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)

Generally speaking, I just like to lurk around on this forum, but after seeing this masterpiece, I just had to comment. This has to be the most beautiful thing I have ever seen rendered in plastic! It could easily pass for the real thing! The radiator cap, and steering wheel; EVERYTHING!! absolutely speechless...

Congratulations!

Ken

Did this one get finished? Or did I just miss the final pictures (Wouldn't be impossible :lol: ).

 

It looks so good, that I'd like to see the final pics if it is already done.

Great, then I didn't miss anything. B)  Now I have to go and subscribe the Magazine. The thing I had to do already a year ago, but somehow I forgot to do that.

Niko... I can tell you this... This build was even better in person. I got to see it in person at the NNL West this year and what eye candy it was. I love Johns work.

Someone posted a link to this in another post I checked the link out and had to go back and see the whole build. Amazing I can't believe the detail you put into this! Like the carb heat stains on the headers, and that awesome paint job. I just wish I was 8.5" tall so I could take it for a spin

Truely incredible model, you're a master of so many techniques.

I'm sure this will stand as a model hot-rod benchmark for many years to come.
