    1946 Graham Paige (Areoflyte de' elegance)
    I took a casting of the Graham Paige sportsman coupe i built from scratch and made some modifications. The first casting I finished in Under Glass. There is also a comparison photos below.



    This is 16th scale and totally scratch built including the interior and chassis,,,,The tires and wheels are form a 63 Corvette.
    You can see the changes that were made to the de' elegance model. I made a set of casting to make this version.






    I will be using the same interior with a few minor changes. The interior and dash have been molded so I will be using castings. I am also going to mold and cast the wheels since I only have 4 of them.....I Have 4 variations of this car,,,mostly just color changes,







    I have some ideas I am going to work on the the original body and have had requests to see about a convertible version to go with the coupe,

    the chassis is done along with the complete interior and the engine is started....the model shown is on the chassis........it is snap fit chassis that holds the interior in place

    I use the cheap rattle cans and spray it outside........we have a lot of trees. I do one thin coat and let it dry for 2 or 3 minutes ,,,,then a heavier coat....let it set a few minutes,,,,,,then heavier coat or 2 making sure for good coverage and smooth finish,,,,,,,it is learning how heavy you can spray and not having it run,,,,,,,,since I have been using only rattle cans for 50 years I have it down fairly good......this paint job took about 10 minutes to do....The chrome is bare metal foil....which I am not very good at,,,,I have just started using the bare metal this year and pleased with the outcome, Just a little more working with it I will get that down too.
