A work of art to be sure. Do you keep your builds ? I think I remember that you built the semi rig for your father. This Willy's is one of my favorites that you did. Of coarse I like them all but this one just strikes a cord in me. if I had the money I would make you an offer you couldn't refuse. : ) So........... whats next ? I also can hardly believe you can buld a model of this quality in so short of time. i can't even build a glue bomb in that time. My hat is off to you sir.

Another beauty from the Teresi model factory. The look of polished and dull aluminum could not have turned out better. Your mastery of Alclad shines through inside and out. Another eye catcher for sure.

Is it safe to look at this car in full sunlight without eye protection ?

This is awesome John! Truly incredible work! The paint is beyond belief! I wish that Alclad would develop a "rattle-can" for this paint.

Turned out GREAT. Amazing work all over, I enjoyed very much watching this come together. You did great job with replicating Aluminium, Flames looks awesome, too. Detailing is perfect, as always. Amazing job, as always, John. Thanx for sharing this one.

Another outstanding model John! That is really beautiful. I too love the interior colors and the subtle contrast they add.

When you use Alclad Chrome do you first use Alclads' black or someother form of gloss black? Thanks, KB
