  1. 1958 Cadillac Fleetwood Sixty Special

    This Johan promo was pretty badly warped. I was able to get most of the body straightened out using the hot/cold water technique. The interior was beyond repair so I substituted one from a '59 Caddy sedan. The friction chassis was replaced with one from a '58 Chevy, extended to fit the Caddy wheelbase. Suspension lowered and hubcaps are '64 Caddy. Paint is Tamiya Champagne Gold.
  2. Johan 31 Cadillac V16 Roadster

    Beautifully done. I've been sitting on this kit for some time trying to figure out how to hot rod it but after seeing your build I'm having second thoughts. Maybe stock is the only way to go. Very very nice.
  3. Gold Chrome Lamborghini Aventador

    This looks like it will be very interesting.
  4. Junk.

    These are so cool. Is that hopscotch on the ground?
  5. Lone Wolf Custom's Foose Caddy

    The color combo really makes it pop. Awesome paint job.
  6. Johan 1978 Cadillac Coupe de Ville

    Nice clean build. The color looks like what Cadillac called Chateau Mauve Firemist. I'm working on a 1970 Coupe Deville that will be that color. Very nice.
  7. BMW 2002

    Here's my version of Hasegawa BMW 2002 Turbo. Pretty much box stock with Alpina wheels from Ukrainian Scale Cars Productions, BMF chrome and black chrome and a bit of added details to the seats and door panels. Paint is BMW Silver Blue.
  8. Hooper & Co Diorama

    I can't get enough of this. The diorama and the automobiles are just stunning.
  9. 1971 THUNDERBIRD

    Beautiful build and photography. I have a '70 on the bench I'm going to do in what Ford called Medium Ivy Green Poly or Three Putt Green Metallic, similar to what you've done. Very nice!
  10. Name those parts #4

    #2 looks like the hood from AMT's 1970 Thunderbird.
  11. 1960 Pontiac Bonneville

    Very nice! Did you use the Molotow pen or shoot it through an air brush?
  12. It's the AMT Escalade from the hood to the rear doors, rear fenders and tailgate with the Revell Silverado rear window bulkhead and shortened pickup bed. Scratch built bed cover with the Escalade brake light and modified Silverado frame.
  13. 1948 Cadillac

    Thanks guys, I'm glad some folks like it as much as I do. Blame it on my A.D.D. Like so many other builds I get to point where I just want to get it done and move on to the other 5 or 6 projects on the bench. I also wanted to have it finished in time for last weeks show in Tampa, which by the way was a great show with some utterly phenomenal builds. I'm trying to get myself to the point of focusing on 1 build at a time so they are truly finished but with so much going on in life it would take years to finish one project. But maybe that's what it takes to get to the next level. Thanks again!
  14. AMG Mercedes Benz 300SEL 6.8 "Red Pig"
