It has been awhile since I made a post. So Ill just inundate this post with pics. I usually do my customs in batches of 5-6 at once. And now with the airbrush I even wait for more to clearcoat all at once since thats the most crucial part of finishing, thus, it take me longer to get them in the booth now. Such is life. Hope ya enjoy. Each pic will be captioned with what I used. A few pics near the end are of others customs and will be noted. I just do alot of custom for custom, although I finally broke the barrier and am now selling...once you have 400 of your own customs on the wall there is a problem.
HW Alfa Romeo Giulia. Stripped/Polished/Resprayed with Spectra Red. Chrome racing stripes. Monoblock White Custom wheels. All hand details and a slight stance to the front wheels (gave it a slight bulldog look from the front). HW Fairlady 2000 Roadster. Stripped/Resprayed with a Gold Pearl (forget which). Hand detailed. Resting on some custom @78toy4dr wheels (love his wheels, high quality and so many types). HW Porsche 934 RSR Turbo for our bud @philiphilip (part 1 of 2, trade). Stripped/Polished/Resprayed a custom Spectra Dark Jungle. Its a very earth smoke color. Love it. All hand details and added a super cannon in the rear (might of went a bit big, but I like it). Sitting on a set of custom Rally wheels from DieCastParts located in S.Africa (Metal wheels and RR, very nice wheels. On a side note these wheels when they first did them were resin cast and quite frankly a terrible product. They switched to metal and the wheels are amazing now.) HW 55 Bel-Aire Gasser. Stripped/Polished/Resprayed in a Spectra custom Indigo color. Hand details. Added a different heart and created some custom pipes. Detailed and weathered the engine. Almost weathered the whole car, but havent done it....yet. I personally am not a gasser fan, but I had to have a go at one. HW Grand National. Stripped/Resprayed in a Deep Burgundy pearl custom paint. All hand details. Sitting on some RR drags. I dont think I will be doing this casting again. I hate the front end. Can never get the hood to sit properly, always has a downward slope. Glad they made a fused model, will be using that from now on. HW Chevelle. Stripped/Polished/Resprayed in Spectra custom Merlot. Hand details and accents. Added a new hood “ornament” , as the original was quite underwhelming. HW Toyota 2000GT. Stripped/Resprayed in Cinder Red Pearl. Hand details and accents. New shoes from #monoblockwheels (Tuxedo Black). I really like this casting. Lots of potential with decals (if only I had a source of quality decals). HW BMW M4. Stripped/Polished/Resprayed in a custom Spectra Burgundy. Hand details as usual. Sitting on some absolutely brilliant wheels made by @78toy4dr (mimic the Alpine). Should have tucked the wheels just a tad to improve side profile. Live and learn. HW Porsche 934.5. Stripped/Resprayed in Purple Passion Pearl. Hand detailed. Went a bit crazy with color choice, dont know until you try. Sitting on another set of @78toy4dr wheels. Custom single large flame thrower in back. Created by @jdmkid_alex. Custom LB Works kit. Hand detailed by him. An absolutely beautiful car. Won this beast for 10$ in a raffle. Custom by @kool51designs. Holy crap where to begin. This guy is part of the cream on the top of the custom world. Tampoed and weathered. Hand painted red wheels. Bike rack added to roof. Rolls....needs a spark plate under! One day Ill be making customs like this, just need some quality decals. Custom 510 Bluebird. Created by @pdubrewer. I love this color, so I pretty much told him I want it. Matched the S2K he made for me in same color. Stanced out on mini 4sps. Exquisite hand details. Man I love this. To me this next customizer is one of the best,Mike Lashley from FB. His customs are show quality. Perfect paint and CC application. Insane attention to detail. Awesome subtle fabrication. His deals are top notch (printed on a special printer that can print opaque metallic and full colored decals. This is a lime green kandy over a silver pearl base. Custom WW wheels. A pearl white cab roof. I really cant capture the magnificence of this paint. This is the 5th 62 like this I have received. Once day I do a story just on these as they deserve it. BTW the bed is real wood (walnut I think he said...). Crazy. Last but certainly not least is another awesome customs by @pdubrwer. This and the 62 are my favorite castings, or at least the float around in the top 5 as my top are always changing. This was sprayed in a color shift paint. The crazy thing is he left the front honda tampo on and the paint didnt cover it. Awesome! The front is not snapped in, my fault, he gave it to me open in case I wanted to change anything, which I didnt. I just forgot to close completely before the shoot... Sprayed the wheels a custom clear purple to highlight the colorshift. Fully detailed.
Well there ya have it. Another batch of customs. I have 6 more sitting in my Helping Hands waiting on CC. Raining finally this week so I wont get to that until the air looses some humidity. All customs by me are for sale with exception of the RSR Turbo(trade) and the M4/GNX (sold), but then again Im in no hurry as I become attached to my art.
