Its been a while since I have posted some artwork, so after much drawing here is one I did a couple of months ago for a friendly competition. The theme of the particular round was set around the rims, and so I ran with a previous idea of propellor themed rims. That lead to '' Pride of Britian'' - an E type Jaguar with a heavy Supermarine theme to it. I was very happy with the result and thought that this could make for a pretty cool build.

Wow. That is really great work. It's very well thought out right down to the propeller design of the wheels. Well done sir!

Really nice! I like your style.

 

That reminds me of the old Aroura (?) kits of the 60's that had a WW2 theme  There was a Jaguar ,a Mercedes,and something else.

Nope,that's not it. I've done some searches and can't find anything. If I remember,the boxes were an olive drab color.

The GT-40 may have had the sharks teeth on it though.

That model Jag did look good, here is another that I did - done before the ''Pride of Britain'', and thats where I got the wheel idea from. This drawing below is a Datsun Pickup with a japanese Zero theme to it.

Very nice Sven! I belong to a couple of Datsun forums. Several guys have put rising suns on their hoods or tailgates. There was a 510 wagon that was painted like a P-40 with the teeth on the sides

That is an old truck. 312?  I have a '73 PL620 that I redid.

Thanks John, that '73 PL620 looks like a nice pickup, and I reckon it looks pretty cool redone. A friend of mine did a Nissan Z 240 with a Zero theme - and as I'm into hot rods and trucks I thought the theme would work well on the Datsun. And Harry P. - yes all colored pencil.
