Tiago Ranchero

Dan Booker is replicating Dick Reynold's Tiago ranchero. Dick's model is the first faithful scale replica of a famous custom car. Dan is well underway on this model.

WAYOUT

Mark Budniewski is building this sectioned, bubble top-custom built by Smith and Bates. This should be a great model. 

Telstar

Mitch Capps has been working hard on this most-difficult cloning project. With the great help of original builder Bob Sifferd, Mitch has the basic body and chassis roughed in and paint isn't far away. Check out Sifferd's web site.

EMMONS

Famed historic modeler Don Emmons built this replica of Bill Neumann's famed channeled '32 Ford roadster – in 1/8 scale!  Cloner Brian Dees has an excellent start of this difficult-to-clone model.

ASTRODAN-- FIRST PAGE

Sculptor Mike Good has crafted the body of this historic asymmetrical '40 Ford. Parts have been gathered, Trustee Alan Raab will be machining the headlight and taillight aluminum bezels and lenses. Mark S. Gustavson has applied applied the vibrant, heavily-metalflaked candy green under the color direction of Mike Good. Mike will be handling final assembly tasks. The painted, partially-assembled Astrodan appeared at GSL-XXI in 2007

Mike Good did an incredible job sculpting the highly-styled body. The candy green paint by Mark S. Gustavson certainly captures the early Sixties!

Keeler

Mark S. Gustavson has applied a more accurate candy red paint job on the restored body of Keeler's wild '63 Corvette roadster.

Neumann

Rick Hanmore has finished his precise, multi-year replica of Bill Neumann's model of his 1:1 restyled '60 Ford Starliner. 

Anderson

Carl Moore has taken on the massive project of replicating Budd "The Kat" Anderson's full custom passenger car pickups. The Falcon Ranchero is ready for paint!

MORGAN DRAGSTER

Rick Morgan won the top award in the Revell-Testor I contest with this great dragster.

CLONED1

Tim Pentecost has created a magnificent replica of Morgan's incredible dragster.

AUFFINGERCHEVY

Terry Rollins is building this difficult-to-replica '57 Chevy by Auffinger. The combination of first-gen Barracuda roof and rear clip with Chevy doors and front clip yielded this great design. 

Davison

Jeff Worsham has roughed in this bulbous Revell-Pactra I Best Paint winner (coarse chartreuse metalflake) built by Tom Davison. We've contacted Tom who tells the Museum that his original model no longer exists.

AuffingerBird

Easily one of the best styled of early Sixties customs, Rick Wright made a great start on this incredible, but subtle, model. Very sadly, Rick passed away in early 2008, and this project has been taken up by the Tim Burkhardt, with help from Steve Catron and the Albuquerque Model Car Club.

JonesBubble

Trustee Alan Raab is building a replica of this great, but too-little known, mid-engine custom designed and built by Chuck Jones.  Go here for more info on this great cloning project: http://www.themodelcarmuseum.org/Programs/Clone/clone.html
