DIEHARD DAIRY DELIVERY COLLECTORS CLUB EDITION ~ RED
This one is rare indeed! One of one creation to say the least!
It started as one of my realistic faux paint textures. The effect done using four different colors of paints from chrome to black with some pearl silver and galaxy grey layered in and over each other, while using several techniques like dry brushing and literal scrapes…to eventually get a believable look of aged metal. But…again….its all paint!!
Then I needed something that would contrast this aged metal patina and thought what would be a more stark contrast than HOT PINK!!? Thus the side flames were born from a two stage custom mix of auto air/wicked colors.
I had to leave it at that point because I thought it might be toooooo much of a contrast. But eventually warmed up to the combo.
I thought it might need a little more tho and added some chrome-ish flames on roof and nose!
All lights and chutes detailed as well as the rear windows blacked out.
Chassis features white redline rubber tires! Was disassembled and black washed to bring out more detail and tone done the bright chrome appearance a little. Wheels also black washed. Seat/roll cage pretty much stock except a few well placed exacto cuts to remove parts of the steering wheel and roll cage above driver seat.
Body is removeable. It will also stay attached to chassis when fully closed OR..fully upright position.
The odd mix of colors and patina…really does go well with each other, from body to tires!
Watch for the SALE LINK to be announced soon!!
Did this one earlier this year. Its quite the casting I must say!
All paint…by hand. Airbrushed even the “got nitro” on top. Its got a really cool color change effect too. I lost count of how many layers of real fire went on this thing, but I can tell you it was a lot!
New tires with yellow stripe sidewalls added. Also did a lot of black wash detail on chassis. Added a custom display case with nostalgic KB logo and mounted to case.
One of one here and it has been adopted already but I thought you might enjoy a little look!

This one was done in 2012. I purchased a casting that Paul Spradlin (68customs) had done the cut work on previously. I did some shaving and massaging inside and out of body before coating with multiple layers of candy flames. I also did the side edges of flame cuts by hand with process blue to give it an outlined appearance.
Then the chassis…lots of work on that part! Parts were used from 7 different castings/brands to get what you see here. A LOT of hand molding as well to mesh everything together smoothly. The original chassis was utilized but the bottom was milled flat where stock exhaust and drive train were, and a diamond plate piece was fitted into its space and epoxied in place. The dash is from a Bigtime Muscle Charger and the seat is from a Maisto.
