    I would like to THANK everyone for their support and encouragement during the build of the El Matador. I was shocked to my scoks when I won the awards: Adult People's Choice and the Model Cars MCM Award from NNL 2009.

    A special THANKS goes to Raul for his help in getting the pictures on line for all to enjoy.

    Next stop is Goodguys Pleasant, California April 3rd to April 5th, then on to GSL, Salt Lake City, Utah April 30 to May 3. I hope to see you there.

    SO once again I would like to THANK ALL of YOU.

    El Matador for GSL
    Here's a picture of the El Matador that I'm building from a Revell 40 Ford kit for the next GSL.


    Here's a picture of the body with the base coat of paint.


    Here's a picture of the brass front brakes for my El Matador that I'm building for the next GSL. The entire assembly is bolted together with nickel plated brass hardware from Scale Hardware.


    Here's a picture of the rear brake assembly that's fabricated from brass and wire.


    Thanks for looking,

    49 Merc Wedge Lead Sled
    Here's my wedge cut lead sled. I cut about 5/8" out of the back. The paint is Tamiya Lime Green base with Testors pearl and a 2-step automotive epoxy clear.


    Here you can see how much the body was cut out of the back. The taillights are made from red plastic that I machined in my lathe.


    I made the decals from an image that I found on the internet.


    I airbrushed a light coat of dirty wash thinner over the bottom to give it a slightly aged look.


    I added a little wire detail and carburator linkage to the stock engine.


    I hope that you enjoy this one as much as I did building it.

    Thanks,
