"The Stig Collection" -Beatles RR

Recommended Posts

This is my Minicraft Beatles Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II.  I took a week off work, just to make sure I would get it done. Its all hand-drawn, and painted, and I basically painted all the designs three times since I did three thin coats of kolor for each. I got the "four lads" from a set of trading cards, and it was a time consuming, as well as fun creation...….NEVER to be done again, LOL!!…..I was even offered $1000 for it at a contest where it took first place, but if I sold it, I knew i'd have to do it again, and turned them down....lol

There's nothing you can do that can't be done.

John's Phantom V had a record player in it, as you may know.

IT'S EASY!!!!

Seriously awesome build. I am blown away by your paint work. My mind boggles at having to paint all of that in three light coats. That's one of the coolest models I've seen in some time. Very cool, hat's off to you, sir. Very well done!

Good thing you turned down the $1000, cause Money can't buy you love, although it will buy model kits. Most of the cash would have went to the Taxman...
