Awesome collection Harry, beautifully done, and you're right you don't see those very often I think I've seen one or two at a show and if my memory serves me right they had a pretty penny price on them ............ yours are awesome...... thanks for sharing......

I love the look of all of these. Something about a car you have to look up to be able to identify. I have a few Minicraft and the Lifelike series. Might just have to wait longer on those til my skills set gets better. Yours are just beautiful.

Beautiful work Harry, some of those Aurora ( the Stutz, the Olds and a few others) kits where the first kits I ever worked on. My dad bought them and showed my brother and me how to build models. They ignited my lifelong passion for our hobby. :)

Amazing work Harry!! I love the Fire truck!! What are you using for the brass? Alclad?

On each of those models with a "brass" radiator shell, it's the brass-plated kit part.

For the rest of the brass, like lights, horns, and all the various other brass details: Rustoleum "Metallics" spray paint (color is Brass), then a wash of acrylic black craft paint and Future to bring out the detail in the "nooks and crannies.".

The thin lines, like the edges on some of the running boards, and the pinstriping on the fire truck, are Gold BMF. I don't think they make a "brass" BMF, but their gold foil is pretty close to brass.
