  1. Thank you Bruce. And thanks for hangin in there with me. I’m glad you like the dust ... I found scraping Conte crayons (very hard pastel - like Leonardo used) using sienna, black, and white formed a dust that could be fixed with just about any liquid including plain water and a bit of gum Arabic that can be a washed off you probably figured out where I’m going with this ... between your “grime” and my “dust” we could make a mint 😉
  2. thanks everyone . I’m glad you enjoyed the pics. It took long because I had retina surgery on a detachment . Then had cataracts as an expected side effect from the recovery process. But I got full eyesight back at the end of January . They say you don’t appreciate stuff until you lose it. I can tell ya how much you really appreciate it when ya get it back!
  3. Thanks again Larry. I never use this “under glass” forum but thought I’d post the final shots here.
  4. Arden who? ... thanks Gary. This is a one-off proto-what-if . OHV finned ala flathead. Centrifugal supercharger ala liberty air engine check the build thread ... it explains some
  5. ... hey ... it coulda happened here’s the build thread
  6. Haha ... Hell, I can do that right now with a few pulls on a good bourbon ... well ... maybe not this morning ... I gotta face the reality of weekend chores
  7. I don’t know ... I’m sorta sad I won’t be around to see the day when I’d be able to order online a specific serial number and have it 3D published as a one-off ... made from the exact specs from the actual car or tank or spaceship ... my pick of scale ... with precision that may require just two drops of non-toxic bonding agent ... I could go on In the meantime ... stay well everyone!
  8. Amazing detail Bruce ... real nice! the decal pinstripes tell me there were no kids or large dogs in the house ... 😐 Interesting history great pics, thank you
  9. Outstanding Chris!!! i really enjoy your work.
  10. Ford vs Alpha ... what if?
  11. Wow! Was this recently moved here or did I simply miss it? absolutely stunning Luca! ... any updates?
  12. beautiful seats Scott, and welcome back! ... the carpet looks better too ... or is the weathered effect from a bit of dust from sitting so long? .... just sayin’ 🙂
  13. .... this was one of my favorite builds and I had full intentions on weathering it like the vintage race pics ... but once done, i didn’t have the guts ... bravo sir
  14. I love your style Tomasz. Great kit. Great detail and fabrication. Great display and photos. ... and then, you dirty it up just right with superb execution and show off by wetting the tires and rain drips down the body sides and photograph it on an overcast day Amazing job .
