Eleven for 2020

Recommended Posts

I am overwhelmed by the number of fantastic models that were built in 2020 and posted on this forum which is one positive thing that came out of this otherwise forgettable year. I built a record setting for me eleven model cars, the last of which I just finished with a few hours to spare in 2020 so in reverse order here they are.

Replica of a 1987 Players GM Challenge Series Camaro

Nice work Phil!  I did a custom very similar to your 39 except I did it to a Tudor rather than a convert. Looks like a lot of us had a good year!

Cheers

An excellent set for the year!

I find the '48 Woodie particularly eye-catching.

Hi Phil! Eleven beauties sir. All are very nicely done but, ironically, as a GM guy I particularly like the 64 Ford.

Besides all being very well done, you have a build in almost every style  you can think of.

You should be proud of high production and quality builds!  I had one of those ICM Scarab kits, sold it in Phoenix, I like what you did.

A High Production year, Phil. With some fine results indeed. Some of the outcomes are so "natural" and together looking that it's easy to overlook how technically challenging they hust have been. The Revell '40 Ford Deluxe Coupe and the '30 Ford Tudor come to mind. You do Muscle Car based road racers nicely. The Players Challenge Camaro brought back memories of discovering Ron Fellows' prodigious talent seeing him toss around a similar car on the old Indy car course in Vancouver many moons ago. And I thought you reshaped the nose and fenders of the Scarab rather well to capture the essence of the 23B. All the best to you for 2021.

Thanks Kurt - It just shows what is possible when you have lots of time to kill. In many ways I am hoping 2021 will not be as productive !!

Thanks Carl - I based the Thunderbolt on the Holman & Moody 427 Fairlane road race car
