Topics I've Started

It's alive...Frankenstude

19 April 2014 - 05:00 PM

I've been busy this weekend. Polished and assembled. Jimmy Flintstone creation...Frankenstude. House of color Pavel Purple base with Kandy purple on the top. This one is going to Rand Bailey, the painter who painted the real Frankenstude. I work in his shop on Saturdays restoring my 1968 Triumph Daytona. I get the pleasure of working next to some really high end multi mega dollar cars...cobras, porsches, shelby mustangs...its awesome reference.

Outside it looks more like the real cars color purple. 

Bugatti Trifecta a Gathering of T57's

Done, done and done. 1/43 Vroom Bugattis. From left to right T57 Gangloff Coupe, T57 Roadster Jean, T57 Grand Raid. I have had these kits sitting around for some time, they were to be built for a customer but he has no money...tough times...so they will now reside in my collection. The 1936 Roadster Jean is my favorite of the 3...the front wheel fenders turned with wheel.  The pastel, mint green and the flowing lines are just darn sexy.

I thought I had one of these that was cast in white metal and made by Garage Scenes Pro Series white metal parts. Can anyone verify it was made or is there one in a kit?

Is anyone aware of any photo etch for Shelby 427 cobras? Looking for some photo etch jack attachments.

Paint prices

I pretty much use automotive laquers to paint with. I buy them in pints and they last me a long time. I went to the paint shop yesterday to buy some Viking and Guardsman blue. $85 per pint. The last time I purchased a pint it was $40. A quart of Ditzler primer was $76. I should be set to paint Cobras from now until the zombie apocalypse.
