Just an update, interior mold almost finished, test shots soon.

I keep calling this a Viper interior, but it's a Vampire interior .

Cool.

Looks like it could work with quite a few other bodies too.

:good:

Great looking interior, love the detail but how about adding a scale in one of the pictures so we can see the exact sizes.

Also, it would be great if you could make a separate F-1 version using the same driver with that fantastic detail.

Awesome work Gene. :good:

 

Many thanks to Brad for making an original available, and to Gene for going to the trouble of bringing it to life.

 

Also, thanks to SlotBlog for being here.

Gene gets the credit, I just supply examples! 

 

I applaud all who make stuff in our little hobby.  To my knowledge nobody is making any real money, it's really a labor of love; but we all benefit by having toys to play with and enjoy.  However, there's no denying some guys have a gift!  Between Rick Thigpen's chassis work, and John Havlicek's motor work, and Gene Adams and Victor Ferguson's vacform work, and Jairus and Noose's paint work, well, it becomes art!  I call them out, but seriously, cheers to all (raising a Guinness now, really!)!

 

Now, I'm not going to ask, "What's next?"  I know there's more in the pipeline.  Some from me, some FOR me, but there's more coming...
