Stock Car is Done

I was going through my blog this morning and see that I completely forgot to update this site on the completion of my '57 Chevy Swanson stock car. Having only one decent picture from the Swanson Automotive site, most of the build was either from memory or from the article on their site regarding the early years of the shop and the history of Chevy's 1957 Black Widow racing model that was donated to Swanson by the Racing Division of General Motors. I entered this scale build in a local contest here in Phoenix this past spring and took top honors in the Replica category.

All Done

Finished up the last wall and now its just a bit of erasing and a few minor spots for touch-up painting remaining. A friend of Jenn's painted the grass as a baby shower gift for her. Jenn's baby shower is Sunday and she wanted this done. Well, so did I.

Avary's Room

The detail painting is all done so all that is left is to erase the pencil lines and finish painting in all of the open areas. A couple more progress pictures.

A New Grandpa

Next month, I'll become a new grandpa. It took a couple of days for this to sink in but now I'm thrilled, as we all are. I've been asked to paint the baby boy's nursery with some whimsical safari animals. The mother-to-be had some ideas and colors chosen so we set about working out which animal would go where. Here's a few pictures of the progress so far.
