cool show thus far! here's two knobs i finished over the last two weeks. the first is a pretty nice cholo loco lowrider. mi impala needs one of these i think. watched blues brothers the other day and damned if it doesn't look like cab calloway's character too, what with his hat worn lower than jake and elwood. hat ribbon is all there and has a little feather sticking out of it like most hats did. second knob is the late WWI german. i kinda wanted to do one in this vein, but really don't want to do anything nazi... this helmet originated the style that would become the evil nazi icon in WWII. fully detailed, has the liner and chinstrap rivets, as well as the two frankenstein looking lugs up top. these were vents, but stuck out to mount a piece of forehead armor upon to protect from sniping in the trenches. helmet debuted in 1916 and was made until 1918. i have one that was painted silver when i got it and had an original in-the-trench painted camo pattern under the silver. scuffed it and found the pattern after i saw the telltale colors through some cracks in the silver. in-trench painted helmets were painted by those with some artistic experience or brush time, and didn't follow the specific patterns used by factories, and mine had an iron cross painted on its crown. last pic is a sneak peak of THE BEST SHIFTER KNOB EVER in progress. all of these are in wax and await mold making and aluminum casting.
