There was a thread talking about Greg Wahn's Eleanor and I didn't want to hi jack the thread by posting pics of it on there..... Greg's casting of the iconic movie Gone In 60 Seconds 2 is one of the best castings I've seen!!! As of these photos the car is near done!!! Just havle to put headlights in, strut tower braces and the three bar code spinners on the wheels!!!! Photos do not do this car justice!!!!!

I used 32 Ford headlight buckets for the build, photoetched grille, three bar spinners. I can get some better pics up later if anyone wants me to!!!!!

the paint is the actual color of the real car..... I also used Keith Marks GT 500 decal set...

Hi All,

  Rocky makes it seem like I have been really busy.  Actually Rocky has been doing most of the work on the projects he mentioned.  Awhile back he made contact with me to help me out.  We are joining forces to create a new resin venture.  Rocky found my 1:24 Scale digital Cheetah slotcar on a shelf with other diecast that I purchased for the someday pile, He excitedly exclaimed "That's my holy Grail!".  He helped name the venture.  Holy Grail Hobbies.  So, folks, we will see how it goes for us.  Several casting businesses have recently closed, we will make our mark on the hobby.  I really need Rocky to light a fire under my butt to help make this a real and serious business.  I am still moving onto a 2 acre site in Sun City with a big house and  decent sized separate shop for me to have as my own personal DOG HOUSE to hide from the wife in and make resin parts.  Micro Mark came out with a new item called a laser knife.  I am planning to purchase one.  Once Rocky figures it out we can offer photo etch type laser cut scripts.  That is the plan.  Rocky is going to be really busy!

Greg, I still have the Eleanor I bought from you last year. I got it painted and that's as far as I got with it. I came across it the other day and it is currently moved up in the build queue.

So two years later is a transkit available.  I got one of the Scale Productons one a few years ago.  I should count my blessings.

You should.

I had one too, but since my interest shifted elsewhere, I decided tot sell it.

NEVER should have done that...

Yea!  Might call for an unexpected set of stripes, although I can't think of what might work at the moment ....
