Models by: Those more talented than I
Remember Mark Hamill and Annie Potts cruising in this car?
How talented and brave would you have to be to model this car? Lots of both –

“This master (shown above) is my (Phantomphan’s) work. The car is in about the same shape. My 9-5 has taken a lot out of my hobby time. I will be back in high gear in September. I still plan to do this car.”
Update May 27, 2006:
As far as I know, there is still no resin of this car.

In Response To: Phantomphan – any chance for this one? *PIC* (David Palmeter)
Well, I have wanted to do a Corvette Summer. I have several to do on my want list. I’m going to have to be careful on which ones to pick. Some of the ones I have cast, didn’t sell but one or two copies.
Thanks for the inspiration.
