I don't have the originals, LIFE has those archived somewhere I'm sure. What I do have however is huge, high resolution versions of the pictures saved to my hard drive. They are not taken from the book but are digital copies of the originals without the LIFE watermark.

If you look at the Archer site there is a link to photos to assist in using the set, you can see a few smaller versions of what I have. For instance at the bottom of the set of photos, you can find that very same picture you posted minus the crease/fold in the books page as well as the watermark.

As an aside, I must say I'm not too crazy about the font size on the fender lettering, it appears much larger than the photo...


Build how you like, like how you build.

I'm glad you said that, I was thinking the same thing.

I should have put a smilie on my comment about you having the originals as it was sort of in jest.
Does everyone use Photobucket??!!

That's why I asked-It would be surprising for you to have the originals!
I'm interested in the photos as well and hope to finish my M3 GMC as one of these one day.

This may be the last WIP update. Should be able to complete this in the next couple of days.

I tried to get a pin wash, some of the basics just escaped me and I really tried to screw this up. But I think I pulled it out of the clutches of doom.

Not going to get into detail about what happened to the insignia, let's just say that clear liquids all look the same...But it does have this very faded look that I probably could not have done if I wanted to.

I'm happy with the way the canvas cover on the .50 cal turned out. Tried using pigments to get texture in there. Thoughts?

Grabbed stowage from all sorts of places. Found the Verlinden stowage set in the 30% bin the other day. Not sure what that one thing is, looks like someone's golf club bag, can't be too prepared, never know when you can sneak in 9 holes.

Well this the last update. I can't find the wire I had for use as the antenna so I just stuck this in to be "representin'".

I was just horsing around yesterday when I did this. The base is the one we're doing with Anthony Reeves in the Mastersclass classroom at TnT. Just an exercise in techniques used to create really great bases. The Well is yet another project.

But starting next week, there will be no horsing around with the Well. 8-)

I got more stowage to add on the other side and shot of dull coat, maybe some wet oil spots somewhere just to test for another project that is coming close to completion.

What do you think?
