If copying someone is a form of flattery what is a copy of a copy? A few months ago an Instagram user contacted me about permission to paint my model of Rod Emory’s 1:18 model after reading the Petrolicious article. He preferred the car without decals as did I. To my surprise he messaged me over the weekend to tell me it was done. Painted on a massive 36 x 60 inch canvas this must look pretty swell in person. From real car to diecast to art, this car is a gift that keeps giving. It will be displayed in the PEC gallery in LA in the fall along with some of his other work. Give him a follow if you’re over on Instagram!
