  1. Halo 5 - Master Chief

    Thanks again for the kind words. I have one more full wrap I am working on, and it should be done in a couple of weeks. After this one, I am calling it good on full wrap cars for a while.
  2. Halo 5 - Spartan Locke

    Thanks for the kind words. I appreciate it.
  3. 1966 Buick Riviera

    Great job! Looks really nice.
  4. Another 67 Impala SS

    Very nicely done!
  5. It's still a model

    Really phenomenal! I can't imagine how much time that took, but the results are amazing.
  6. Dale Jr's last ride

    Turned out very nice. Great attention to detail.
  7. Out of the box , almost 1965 Chevelle wagon

    Great work Ellen. The car and the diorama look great!
  8. 1977 Toyota Celica LB 2000GT

    Looks very nice!
  9. Halo 5 - Master Chief

    In the October 2015 race at Kansas, Microsoft and 343 Industries announced that they would be sponsoring two cars in the race. The Number 1 of Jamie McMurray would be decorated at Spartan Locke and Dale Earnhardt, Jr's car would be decorated as Master Chief. This is the Master Chief car. It is a Revell Chevy using Patto's Place decals. The decal sheet is a full wrap. I painted the car Krylon Camo Green and Krylon Sun Yello in the event that there were gaps in the decals. The issues with the Spartan Locke decals apply here as well. The model is built box stock. I lowered the stance of the car and added a few details to the dashboard. These are unique cars and thanks for looking at the pictures.

The Number 1 of Jamie McMurray would be decorated at Spartan Locke and Dale Earnhardt, Jr's car would be decorated as Master Chief. This is the Spartan Locke car. It is a Revell Chevy using Patto's Place decals. The decal sheet is a full wrap. I painted the car neon blue and black in the event that there were gaps in the decals. The decals are not sized for this model as they are sized for the slot car bodies sold at Patto's. Having written that, this was the only source for these decals. The model is built box stock. I lowered the stance of the car and added a few details to the dashboard. Being a full wrap the decals wrinkled in a few places, and lately, Patto's decals are reacting rather badly to the Micro Sol and Micro Set decal setting solutions in which the decal setting solutions exacerbates the wrinkling. These are unique cars and thanks for looking at the pictures.
  11. Happy 243rd Birthday, U.S. Army!

    Thanks for sharing the information Joe. Having an all volunteer military, we are very fortunate to have men and women who are willing to make the supreme sacrifice to defend the rest of us.
  12. What Irked You Today?

    Jeff, thanks for sharing. I had a former co-worker who would say that family members will screw each other over and never show the least bit of remorse. He was applying the brush a little too broadly, but it seems to certainly apply in a number of cases.

    Chris, you are absolutely right. This happens in our city all too often. The utility comes through jackhammers the hole, they fill it, and within a year the area that they tore up starts to sink.
  14. '77 Ford Mustang II

    Very nice looking model! My wife owned one of these when we were dating. It was so slow, but they all were under powered back then for fuel economy.
  15. It looks really nice!
