Lyle's 1965 Malibu

(click the image to go back)

Seeing as how Lyle's Malibu popped up on page 41 of the newly released Scale Auto Contest Cars 2005 Annual, it seemed a good time to present images of it taken a our November 2004 club meeting.

The body is engulfed in Tamiya yellow and Duplicolor medium orange paints (over Duplicolor primer). Polly Scale blue highlights the wavy flame licks that Lyle applied using hand-made paper templates. All the color coats are deeply buried in Duplicolor clear lacquer. Lyle says he just sprays the laquer until his lovely wife, Lee, starts complaining about the smell rising into the room two floors above his model workshop.
