Scale I Build

  1. My take on a slightly modernized Imposter Delahaye coupe from the 1930’s. Sculpted from a block of sign foam and vacuum-formed. Hood and doors opened. Dash, Seats, Basic Chassis, and Front-wheel drive from a Cord. Photo-etched grille Wheels are Pegasus 23’s with Gold Highlights Paint is a base layer of Tamiya Gloss Black topped with Tamiya Smoke mixed with a heavy dose of Gold and a bit of Green Jacquard micro pearl pigment. Final Top Coat of Tamiya Gloss Clear with House of Kolor Gold Metal flake. Waxed and buffed. P.s., the paint looks much better in person than in the photos and yes, the rear wheels are a little forward of the axle, oh well, oops.
  2. I've scratchbuilt several Figoni & Falaschi designed cars - a Talbot Lago "Teardrop" and a Delahaye 165 - and I've always wanted to produce this one, a Delahaye 135 cabriolet with a body style know as the Paris Show Car series. The series is a dozen cars built from 1936 to 1946, all along roughly the same design, following the original car, shown at the 1936 Paris Auto Show. That car is the same one that won best of show at Pebble Beach in 2000, when ZoomZoom and I attended. As the design is similiar to the TL "Teardrop", I made a cast of it and chopped to top off and filled the wheel openings with Aves Studio Apoxie Sculpt. Looks rough with much work to be done but I'm in no hurry. Deadline is November 3, 2018, the Southern Nationals NNL, in Smyrna, Ga. I hope to see everyone there. Here's a video:
