Really like your weathering on that engine; it looks very realistic!  I'll be watching this build as it progresses!

On the bench:  '63 Studebaker Avanti.

Wow - what a classic racer and brilliant work all round top to bottom side to side - that motor still blows me away with how realistically you have weathered it.  Well done !!

Cars and Star Wars, that's what I like making and painting!!!.

Hey JTRACING.. this is great work.  I just recently got into modeling and bought this as my first kit.  I know I am digging this up from the past but I can only see a couple of pictures here and would love to be able to see the others that you posted previously if that would be possible?  Your cars are some of the best work I have seen and I would also like to know what you used to get that awesome, realistic paint job?
