My Models for 2018

Recommended Posts

2018 was a year of progress in my building skills with (at last) some sort of consistency to my paint jobs. I also introduced more variety to my subject matters with, among other things, my first modern car, an Acura NSX done as a JDM. I also explored the classic 50’s American 2 seaters with a customized ’57 T-Bird and a “triple threat” ’57 Corvette, first done as a Cal Club racer, then as a mildly customized show car. The intention was to finish it up in Bonneville form but it’s still on the workbench waiting for me to finalize that version. So this means I either finished 7 2/3rds projects or 9 subjects. Here they are in chronological order.

Thanx for lookin’ and a Happy New Year to you all

Outstanding work, Bernard!  Will you be showing any of these at the Spring Show in Renton this coming April?  It would be a pleasure to see them in person.

I remember following you 57 Corvette builds. They are outstanding and some of my favorite of this forum's year. Let us know when the Bonneville version is done. All others are really nice as well. I like the Acura too.

Beautiful work! I'd have to say that I'm partial to the chopped Deuce and the '49 Coupe.

Is that the show associated with the Good Guys meet? If so, I haven't taken part because you have to park your models on Friday and leave them there all weekend. If it's a different show I've been thinking about participating shows up here in the PNW. I haven't in quite a few years.
