Just when I think I've seen it all, you show even more detail and realism then before.
Are you having fun?

Just spotted this thread and wasn't even paying attention to who the O.P. was. I looked down the pictures in post #1, and thought 'with a paintjob like this it has to be John Teresi...' sure enough!
No slight intended to our other fine builders, it's just that certain builds simply scream out of certain builders.

All this being said, i must agree. You could sell how to videos. If i dont get the yost set for fathers day, i am going to by them myself.
Could we see a Teresi collection please.

John did you paint the white walls in layers? Did you thin the paint any? What were your steps to get such an even result. It looks great.

Wow! John! The weathering looks real good! Good to see no "showroomcondition" as always. looks more realistic inmy view. Also the details in the trunk - just perfect.
but, why you hand painted the whitewalls? If its allowed, i show you some pictures, the way i make them:
for whitewalls, i took a circle template with the right diameter...
...and brushed them in more steps white:
Here the result:
"Simple" and effective work, less the 15 minutes and you have and I have a uniform surface I do not got done with brush
Perhaps, a choice for upcoming work?

John... this chassis is off the hook Brother!! I love the weathered look on the chassis. Did you spray it with OSH flat black first? and then what did you use for the weathering? I do have to say that my favorite thing about the chassis is the yellow Air tank. I think it looks killer with all of the decals on it and love how it stands out. And I am picking your brain with the chassis because of my '32 Rad Rod project i started before the Army F/C, I want to go for that weathered look on the chassis like you have here. Looking forward to more updates Brother
