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.
