Great Car Models.

Here are some images of some of the great car models coming out of I.P.M.S. Regina as described to us by Mr. Dave Porter enjoy.

The first example is a 1/20 Tamiya Ferrari 640 F1 car driven by Nigel Mansell. The model was built by my buddy Larry Draper. There is a ton of extra details as you can see and lots of carbon fibre decal. I almost think I’m looking at the real thing.

This NHRA four-banger dragster was built by the late, great William Yee of Fort Qu’Appelle Sk. Will created many actual and fictitious land speed record cars that were meant for the Bonneville Salt Flats. His work represented the most in design input I think.

This last vehicle is an amazing representation of the George Barris’ A’la Kart. The model was built by Ed Kereluk of Regina. He made a few modifications on the model in order to better reflect the look of the real car. Ed is big into the show rods and customs. His finished items speak for themselves…….. World class.
