Instagram photo by dinohalcrowTiny piece of history and a little background about myself. My Dad is one of the craftiest people I've had the honour of knowing. He's an awesome Draftsman and highly skilled model-maker. He taught me how to draw from the time I could hold a pencil- after he taught me how to hold a pencil😉. In an age of 3D printing and computer modelling, Dad still makes a living building people custom, built- from-scratch models like this one. When possible, he photographs and takes real world measurements of the cars, boats and trains he makes, then hand draws them to scale and either makes, by hand and tool, one-off pieces or more often several moulds so that he can reproduce them. He'd probably be cranky for me showing this one, because he tends to give me his prototypes or 'rejects' as this one is! This tiny little model is a great example of where I get my 'slightly obsessive' eye for detail from and also my love of classic motorcars. In 1979, Peter Brock drove this car, in 1st place from start to finish, to win the Bathurst 1000km enduro race by six laps, and for good measure, set a new lap record on the final lap. I owe alot to my clever old guy, for getting me up in the middle of the night to watch F1, taking me to car races all over the place, and most of all, instilling the principle of pride in workmanship, knowing your craft, and never, ever giving up. Thanks Dad 😀💞🙏 #holden #torana #a9xss #australianmuscle #musclecar #vintageracecar #legendary #sportscar #enduro #generalmotors #308 #brock #05 #classiccar #retrocar #bathurst1000 #gt #coupe #hatchback #favourite #milesdavis #kindofblue #gratitude #heritage #historic #modelcars #modelmaker #handmade #scratchbuilt
