I’m continuing to thin-out my diecast collection and in the process I’m trying to create some unique combinations of driver figures and cars. Continue reading “Alain Prost & Williams FW15”
I remember it well – the body language of the pair as they walk back to the pits says it all! Continue reading ““Clash of the Titans” – Senna & Prost – (Suzuka Japan – 1990)”
This is another of my 1/43rd scale driver figures. Cast in metal by Denizen it has a remarkable likeness to Alain Prost! aka: “Le petit Professeur”. Other than using one “Marlboro” decal for the back of the figure, I finished the rest in Valejo acrylics (using a little bit of artistic licence here and there!) followed by two protective coats of matte varnish. The gloves (which are cast flat) are also a Denizen item. I was undecided about how to place them with the figure so I used two pairs (one flat and the other I bent with a pair … Continue reading “Le Petit Professeur”!

I’m still popping back to my line-up of miniature driver figures from time to time and yesterday, I spent a while painting the flesh tones on this Alain Prost figure. It’s based on an old Modellers figure which I have modified slightly (see earlier posts) – I’m reasonably happy with it so far so next time, I’ll paint the stitching and shading on the clothing followed with the helmet and the application of decals etc – more on this one soon. Continue reading Alain Prost 1/20 miniature driver figure
I’ve just started another batch of 1/20 scale F1 driver figures – includes Prost, Schumacher, Alonso, two versions of Senna, Gilles Villeneuve, Hamilton etc… So far, I’ve blocked in the main values on the two Sennas and Prost and some facial tones on one of the Schumachers and Alonso… better get on with the rest of the painting! Continue reading WORK IN PROGRESS – 1/20 SCALE F1 DRIVER FIGURES
Using the same Senna body (with slightly cut down legs) and a Prost head, a nice little vignette is taking shape. What a pairing – Team-mates or arch rivals? Continue reading ALAIN PROST 1/20 FIGURE – on the workbench
