Jetty rendezvous

Finally caught up with Warwick after a couple of months (at least) when we had coffees at the Jetty cafe on the Petone esplanade. He's been pretty busy what with a sick mum, selling his house, seeking a new place and starting to look for a job... so its not surprising!!
After a brief walk on the beach I came home and did a little more on the latest pic. Its Graeme Lawrence's Lola T332 F5000 car from the 70's.. My own reference photo and I love the colours.. black, purples, blues and red!
coming along nicely... next one has to be a Millen Celica I think!!  But have to paint the Catalina before that!

Good solid progress after a week..

Just watched final race of GP3. Heart stopping stuff but Mitch Evans has won the championship... Can an F1 drive be far ahead?

Gambia started, Roadrunner finished

Started a new commission. HMNZS Gambia WW2 Cruiser operated by the Royal New Zealand Navy.
All black and white (and grey) plus 3 superimposed Corsairs!
THIS should take a while!

and sprayed, scanned, cleaned and darkened the Roadrunner ready for dispatch to its new owner in the States.

nasty nascar

the second smaller roadrunner is now underway. I like that the main axis of each car if drawn out to the left would intersect at the caption. Serendipitous but a nice balance.
