Hello......this is a MPC 1/12 scale Blower Bently that I bought from Herb Deek`s about 2 years ago...... when I saw Harry Pristovnik `s Blower Bently build.......it inspired me to build mine......I searched the web for reference and came across "Master" builder Francesc Pulido`s Blower Bently .......he is from Italy.......every part was hand made with brass and he used blueprints......so I used reference from him........mine was totally changed....... to many scratch built parts and modifications to mention........mine is all styrene ........I used Tamiya J N green and Tamiya green......all chrome was stripped and painted alclad......"Pro Tech" braided line,detailing wire,spark plug wire,nut and bolt ends,fuel line and t`fittings.......wood floor and sticky back velvet .......if you would like to see how I built this model.......please look in the "Work Bench" section.........thanks for looking.

You've got some explaining to do.

Why did you post a real car on a model car forum? :huh:

John, I watched this build and must say that you turned out another masterpiece! This is absolutely beautiful and very well executed. I learn something new from everyone of your builds and this one was no exception. Keep up the great work!

Now, put it in the driveway, stand back, and get off a bunch of different angle shots, then Harry could use it for Real Or Model!!!

Great work as always John.

Keep on building and inspiring us my friend.

John, you did it again, my buddy...This is a fine example of how a great model should look...This one smells like a 2013 GSL's Best of Show Award recipient!

I "sort of" built one of these when I was a teenager. I had no idea that it could turn out this incredibly well! I am absolutely in awe.
