Juan Manuel Fangio – 1/18 scale figure


Up on the “Bay” at the moment is this 1/18 scale resin figure of the late great Fangio.  I’ve depicted him in an “After race” state ie, showing signs of the dirt and grime he would have endured during a long Grand Prix driving flat out in the heat and exhaust fumes from his own all the other cars he would have been battling with.  Not that he would have been behind them in the race, more likely he would have been lapping them!  The process of creating this worn finish involves the careful application of a series of transparent tonal glazes or washes, which retains the integrity of the original paint finish but at the same time, it creates a faded worn look. Cheers for now,
