Here's one of my W.I.P. doodles, it's too big to fit in my scanner so I had to take a pic....it's titled " Don't need no helmet!"

God that brings back memories. My ex ol lady and the bike I had are now in Montana. She hated the bike. Something about the rear seat. ( It was a P pad style on a rigid frame).

jarius I just snagged this one, as I believe it would make a great dio. With your permission of course.

Go for it, you don't need my permission to build any model! Only time permission is required is if you are going to reproduce the actual artwork. :lol:

Got any corvettes? preferably c4's? :D

Thanks,Jeff

Very few Corvette's have I illustrated. But I like this one...

Jairus-

Didn't you do a drawing of a monocolor green 64 Galaxie with a 427 sans hood?

Later-

Fairlane... yes!

Jairus-

That's the photo of the Fairlane (Sorry) I was thinking about. I've got it mocked up on those wheels ready to be started once I finish my 70 1/2 Camaro convertible (in primer, to be painted this week)and possibly my 60 Starliner drag car with 427. I'm starting to see a theme to my builds. I'll have to call them the "Watson Collection".

Jairus-

Here is a few shots of the 70 1/2 Camaro Convertible that you drew up a while ago. I just pulled the masking off from painting the stripes. It isn't exactly like the drawing but it was your idea that gave me the inspiration. Hopefully I'll have it finished soon. I want to enter it in a local contest April 17th.

I hope you like it. Next is to paint and install the visors and final assembly and polish.

Great work on that Camaro Tom. I think I like the look of the Maroon stripes better than the black!

This is how I submitted the piece to SAE. They had run a similar sketchpad a year earlier with a Faux Pontiac ad (Or was that in MCM?) but editor Kirk Bell would only allow the Camaro convt alone and definitely would not allow the Chevrolet logo. So... that is how it ran in SAE.

When I told Gregg he just snorted. This image is rarely seen...
