Spurts

  
   It seems like I accomplish models in spurts. Several get done in a short period of time and then long periods of drought between. Well here's hoping this is the start of a spurt. I've been working out of state with my youngest son all summer. The will be a hiatus for a few short months and then I'm back down to work in Penna. again for a much shorter time. Hopefully, it will be back to Maine for good when I'm finished down there sometime in the early spring. Suffice it to say, I get no modeling done down there.
   So here's a piece just finished in my first three days back at the bench. No not continuously for three days. The '37 Chevy from Sylvan has been a favorite of mine and I've built quite a few now. This is the second wrecker I've done with the '37 and I changed the look a bit with this one by adding the fendered bed. The boom is also scratch built and I placed the Jordan wheels on it. The grille has been Bare Metal Foil-ed and the paints are Floquil Rail colors. A very light coat of clear flat lacquer dulled it up and a few washes were done. A very light dusting with artists chalks finish it.
    Short but sweet this time, thanks for looking.

Glad to see you are back at it.
I, as a modeler, truly enjoy seeing your works. Over the coming winter months I hope to see more of your work. I live in Fla and with a couple of kids, it seems most of the time I have to work on my hobby is late at night. Work comes WAY too quickly when I am having fun working on my hobby. So it is nice to be able to sneak a quick look at your stuff. Keep it up and thanks for sharing.
