I finished my version of Ed Roth's Mysterion car last October. I wrote a book about the car talking about its creation in the first half then describing my build in the second half. It's available on Amazon. Definitely a bucket list item! Now I am building a 1/8th scale version of the car. Mark Gustavson asked me to give a short seminar at next year's GSL.
Was thinking of getting a book about the legendary Ferrari 250 GTO. Several have been published, was checking out what is available. I'm surprised about the price of some, but this one is insane! And you need to know French. Anyone have one of the other books, to give a quick review or opinion about?
">http:// The Rodder's Journal published ALL of Dan Post's Restyling guides including the famed and illustrious "Blue Book" and very early (1944) mimeographs. Just got my copies today, and man, talk about being inspired by these archaeological finds! Best thing for us model builders are the many hand drawn illustrated "how-to's", plus tons of pics of how it really was, many pre-Hot Rod magazine! This reference material is well worth reading through the sometimes archaic 40's era prose, but tips on channeling, chopping, sectioning, and slamming (my term, not Dan's) 40's and early 50's iron will surely inspire you to get something old on your bench. If your a custom fan, I'm sure you've heard about this release. Believe the hype and get a copy. My build is on hold until I burrow though these manuals, then its off to find some early post-war kits!
