72 GTO--Finished--the 50th Birthday Build....

Image
Before the end of 2011 I had the pleasure to visit with my family in my Central Valley (CA.) hometown. And what did we do to pass the time? Build model car kits (of course). As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows, model building was a popular pass time growing up, and here I am 35 odd years later, back in the same basement, doing the same thing. It was fun! My younger brother built a really cool (and rare) Lotus Europa kit (I might get some pix of it if he ever finishes). My dad worked on a '53 Mobius Hudson. I built up a Round2 reissue of the MPC 72 GTO.




How did the 72 GTO build go? In spite of having a lot of flash and some really silly issues with parts fit, I got most of it done on my birthday, and then brought it home to finish. It took me about another month from there....adding two-part clear, bare metal foil, some photo etch pieces I had in my parts kit, some parts box decals, and other trim goodies.

E para as meninas do Porto que sempre quiseram as Lita do Jeffrey Campbell mas ainda não tiveram coragem de comprar online, aqui fica a boa noticia: estão à venda no centro do Porto, na Rua dos Clérigos. Eu percorri a montra três vezes, até conseguir fotografar sem ter as funcionárias a dar o ar de sua graça. Detesto essa história de não se poder fotografar montras. Alguém pensava que chegassem tão "rápido" a uma sapataria comum? Parece que finalmente se lembraram de pesquisar as tendências do calçado...  Muitas senhoras irão estranhar as linhas robustas do modelo, que não combinam com o resto do stock da loja. Combinando ou não, são muito bem recebidas por cá.
E pensar que eu namorei um Jeffrey há muitos muitos anos...

MY FATHER'S KNIT

Vintage knit from my dad | Trousers and boots - zara
I found this knit last year and I fell in love with the intertwined wool. This piece is so antique and it remains in perfect condition. I'm always waiting for the perfect sunny+freezing day to use this. It's impossible to wear a jacket over this maxi maxi sweater on a rainy day. You always get a unique feeling using this special pieces.
