In honor of my late step-son, who owned the real thing:

100_1365-vi.jpg100_1366-vi.jpg100_1368-vi.jpg

 

This is my best paint job to date. TESTORS spray can enamel, no clear....laid down in one coat, the first time. 

It was just in the cards that day. I did nothing special...no magic tricks...no smoke and mirrors...just pure old dumb luck.

I gave this build to my step-son for his birthday. After his passing, the family gave it back to me. It is displayed in my glass showcase.

Another of my favorites:

Maybe not the best of paint jobs, but one of my faves. Going for the "Box Art" feel on this one.

I've always really liked the combo on my '59 Dodge.

No.

Just a fairly common combination of "Rose Quartz" & "Coral".

I believe that the "La Femme" as an actual Dodge model, was available in '55 & '56 only.

Which one is your FAVORITE!

I'm not sure - the Fortune teller was really a fun project , maybe that one  - I really  love paint, so I gotta say I did enjoy doing all of them.

Rick, dude those are wicked good. I have to say I really dig how you transformed the Tarrantula into that bug creation!

Wow, Rick. Those are amazing. Love the T'rantula redesign. I can't pick a favorite paint job. They are all so incredible!
