Ed Strakers car / new project

Hi Guys

Well Eds car has now been sprayed , Gold in colour i know what your thinking its bronze Yeah i know ,but the colour on the lid is completely different to what comes out of the can , trial and error until i find a colour match im happy with .


Well with the colour on top , and the sun out today , any imperfections will show up like a sore thumb, and guess what i found a prang in the rear quater of Eds car , i quickly this filled this out , and re sanded , and then the whole model rubbed down again , and sprayed again , these are the results.

That 's the top section done , good enough to mould , just the underside left , the rear lights , have a chrome trim i need to remove my outer edge back a little to create this trim .

check out the paint lid , and look at the colour ,
Still need to mark out those doors as well.
more soon
best
Pete

You really have caught the character of the car.
Its pretty unmistakable. Great job.

I found some of the Halfords colours to be a fair way out from the can.
One of the colours I am currently using I can get the colour to vary a surprising amount just by using a primer that is lighter or darker.
 
Let us spray.....

Agree with you Pete - the cap appears to bear no resemblance to the colour of the car. Straight forward for me, by contrast - in the world of Eagle construction, there's white, grey and silver, and that's it, pure and simple!

Straker's Car continues to edge towards completion, and this is one significant step along the way. You're doing a tremendous job - this is part of a lot of people's cultural heritage, don't forget. Set ten years in the future, I watched the car pull up outside the studios, and Straker step out from under the gull-wing door - as a ten year old boy, I could hardly believe my eyes.

The Future really was Fantastic. Thanks, Pete.

Kindest regards

Patrick

Made in the Shade(s)...

And, ah yes, those sunglasses...increased the "cool" factor, quite considerably! ;)

Hi guys
Great reading all your great feed back as usual.

I'm away visiting my parents. back Sunday
I managed to work a little more on the rear lights before I left.
There's a chrome trim again that wraps around the outside edge.its slightly stepped inside .So I needed to remove
The outside edge of mine creating the trim.

You'll see the updates when I'm back.

Next in line for moulding was going to be the Diver section
SKY 1 is next up for completion , but I'm going to jump ahead and get Eds car moulded first , the Diver will then be middle of next Year that way I can complete Sky1 and assemble Eds car.

The Pattern for Eds car will then be converted .to build
The remaining vehicles
Fosters car
Doppelganger car

So loads for you all to look forward to
Best
Pete

Hi Guys
Eds car has really moved on since my last update, as you can see both gull wing doors open, and inside I've patterned the interior rear seat and dash board and center console, the fronts seats i already have molds for these.

All the front and rear chassis have been fitted, this really does look the part, and the wheels are a near perfect match to the full size vehicle, just need to make the central hub.
hope to see you all at Shado con or small space where you can see Eds car on display
best
Pete

One of the best scratchbuilds you've done. (Not that the others are anything to sniff at). You've captured all the subtle curve transitions that make Derek's design so pleasing, (and the reason the Dinky version looks so offensively crap 'cos they didn't). Thanks for sharing your build. The word 'inspiring' doesn't come close mate.

Hi Guys
Its been a while since I last updated this thread so here's a few photos of Eds car .

The centre console rear bench seat ,and front seats have all been cast ,and now fixed inside ,along with the dash board .

The floor area has been filled and sanded to even it out , ready for paint , there's still some details I need to add ie the steering wheel , and phone etc

also ive added working front and rear lights all fitted , you can see the battery is hidden under the rear bench seat , a cover will fit over the top.

more soon

Hi just updated Moon Mobile and now Eds Car

Lots of work has been going on in the interior of the car , a lot of artistic licence as known in the trade.

I managed to find a little time to get back on this model in between the moon mobile.

The figure I spent a long time getting Eds hair to look just right,
the suit is just milliput sculpted ,but you'll have to wait to see these photo's

The floor of the car has been smoothed out and now im working on the inner door linings

hope you enjoy the pics
best
Pete
