1968 Pontiac - 400 CU IN GTO

This painting was done in back in the year 2000 for box art for a Revell-Monogram kit. As usual I used Windsor & Newton Designers Gouache (opaque watercolor) This was a fun painting with all the background rods and custom cars added.

1971 Hemi CUDA

This was the 2nd painting done as part of the assignment from Revell-Monogram back in the year 2000, again using Windsor & Newton Designers Gouache opaque watercolor. The expression on the face of the new owner of the Hemi-CUDA sez it all!

BONNEVILLE and the BLUE FLAME: Recently made the trip to Bonneville to attend the 40th anniversary celebration and dinner party honoring the October 23, 1970 running of the rocket powered LSR vehicle "BLUE FLAME" - driven by the late Gary Gabelich - to a World Land Speed record of: 622.407 MPH in the 'flying mile'; and 630.388 for the flying kilometer record. Those record speeds lasted for more than a decade.

A very well-done slide show was presented by Dick Keller, with his (then) partner at Reaction Dynamics - Pete Farnsworth, adding many interesting aspects and details about the building of the BLUE FLAME.

I took along with me, my model of the AMERICAN WAY LSR vehicle - for some pictures of it ON THE SALT! It drew quite a crowd, with many wanting to have their pictures taken with it. Everyone said they'd like to see it FULL SIZE - and making LSR runs. Me too!

As ALWAYS, THANK YOU for all the letters and e mail with your GREAT stories of your childhood modeling escapades! I DO read them all - and I WILL reply - (though sometimes it takes some time to do that).

Kind regards,
