As usual John, the quality of your work just astounds me, and your choice of subject matter is second to none :-)

That is amazing work ( and excellent photography as well )

I had a job as a professional modelmaker for a couple of years ( a long time ago ) and the camera will exaggerate the smallest defect in painting or construction. Johns building is flawless. 

 

I'd love to build an MFH model, but they are way out of my price range - maybe one day ? If I do I'll be happy if it looks half as good as John's work.

Amazing!

 

Whenever somebody mentions Bologna, I start drooling, as it makes me remember the outstanding food I had there - those 1970 cars must be racing's equivalence of that. Better find myself a clean shirt... :up:

My favourite era recreated flawlessly. Thank you John! (Is there a P153 in 1/20th?)

I'm sure John has been told this hundreds if not thousands of times before but I still have to say it. Your models are simply amazing.  I am totally blown away by the realism.

 

Thank you so much for sharing with us and the world.

The work of an artist... And a gifted one.

 

The beauty of it brought tears to my eyes.

You'd almost think you were looking at real pictures!  Just beautiful work in every way.  You must either be single or have the most caring and loving wife around.  Few women would tolerate their man spending so much time modeling.  This is artistry to the highest order and you're commended for your efforts.  I wonder how hard it is to do work in 1:87 scale?  I have some Porsche 956s and 962s in that tiny scale I'd like redone into different teams, but have no talent for it.  I understand some modelers are so good they can recreate stickers in 1:87 scale and redo a car.  I also have some Porsche 917s in 1:87 scale I'd like to have done up in different colors and teams from the 1970 period.  My email is:   williamibrown53@yahoo.com    if anyone can help me.  I'd like to contract the work since I've got little to no modeling skills.  I am trying to recreate all the Porsche 917s that raced in 1970.  Sure wish someone would produce in 1:87 scale the Ferrari 512S that ran against the Porsches. Ditto for the Ferrari 512M that ran in 1971.
