The Profile Collection

Welcome to my profile collection of cars in bas-relief.  These cars are sculpted entirely by hand and are cast of solid resin composites.  They are 15 to 16 inches in length (approx. 1:10 scale) and vary around 1 ½” in depth, or relief.  Each rough casting is carefully shaped and detailed by hand before the first of several primer coats is applied with each successive coat being block sanded before the next.

The cars’ finish is achieved by fine sanding between each of three coats of lacquer paint and then hand polished to a high luster.

The tires and wheels are formed of solid composite castings and the inlaid spokes are assembled with real stainless wire.

As every car is built on spec as a private commission, the collector may choose between either of the mounting methods shown.  The yellow 250 LM is mounted on a one piece solid walnut backboard with the Ferrari lettering routed out in ¼” raised relief.  The shadow box wood frame mounting behind the 250 GTO measures 22 x 12 x 2 and can be assembled with a felt wool lining in a color of your choosing. 

The brass engraved plaques on these samples state the car’s model and year of production, but they may be custom ordered to include your name, your car’s serial number and any other information you wish to add to personalize your art piece.

You may also order a car as a free form art piece and attach it to a display mounting of your own design. 

Although the pricing of these profile cars will vary depending on the method of mounting, type of wheels, engraving and color, as a general rule, a car that has been sculpted at least once will be priced in the range of $800 to $950.  One offs  (which we welcome) and cars with custom wheels will naturally cost somewhat more to produce.

Although I do seem to concentrate most of my efforts on the Ferrari marque, I like lots of other makes too, and in time the profile collection will expand to include many of the worlds great and most beautiful sports and racing cars.
