Amazing work Harry! I watch in silence as words can't describe the "In Aww" that I am over the realism and overall craftsmanship of your skills on these wonderful builds. Thank you for sharing.

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......

These are so nice , you put so much nice detail into your work . I was recently given about 6 of these type of old vehicle kits . Some 1/16 , some other scales , all unbuilt .

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. :)

Great workmanship, I'd have to agree with the above comment, that they look more like diecast than plastic models.

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.
