Most of you have seen the pics, I just have them in one spot now
Enjoy!!!

I checked out your website. Great pictures and I appreciate the "work in progress" photos on the Ferrari.
Looks like your link should read
http://www.f1paintlab.com/Site/HOME.html
since there is no Welcome.html site.

Also I noticed in the individual project pages, if you have more than 3 lines of text, some thumbnail pictures and navigation links overlap the text.
I checked with MS Explorer 7 and Firefox 2.0

By the way, how long did you spend on the double exposed Renault 25?

I just picked up a used F103. I see that I can run me standard 64P (Kimbrough, Robinson, etc.) spurs, but I need an adapter ring to do so. I've seen this ring available for only $3-4, but shipping to the US is around $15!!! Does anybody know if there is a source for an adapter here in the US?

Thanks in advance.

How long did it take to paint? or how long to shoot?

Painting went quickly but I spent weeks reading how to do it since I only have experience with painting models on the outside.
I also spent days and days designing the decals (inside decals) which for me is as much fun as painting.

But taking out all the variables... a 540 silver can is pretty damn close to a 21.5
has anyone tried the 25.5 BL?

Very nice web site, it explains how you're so good @ the art of detail. Someday I'll create awe inspiring work as well. I,m curious to see pics of your own personal collection of F1s, not your customers... Very nice, very nice none the less!!!

I thought you were asking me.
I think it took me about 14 hours to complete the Renault. Lightfoot shot the photos.

Thanks for the props. The Lotus on the homepage is mine. and here are a couple of my Ferraris



The F189 is supposed to have white letter tires and the 412 needs the Marlboro graphics, maybe someday

That's hella funny, when ever I try to get some recognition from the ol lady, she says and I quote "I listen..... for a little while."
