Airborn Art News

by Merlin on February 15, 2010

Greetings and salutations from the staff at Airborn Art.

This will be the first of many news articles I will be writing regarding what’s going on at Airborn Art.

As some of you already know, our skills and passions here go beyond the Custom Paint and R/C helicopter world.  My plans for these posts are to keep all of you up to date on the many projects that come thru the shop, some will be mundane others pretty neat.   There are a couple of projects in the queue that I think all of you will find interesting.  I also plan on doing some short tutorials on some of my techniques that may prove helpful to my readers that have an interest in how we get from “point a to point b”.  Some will ask why I’m willing to give up trade secrets… well, I’ve been mentored by some of the best artists and fabricators out there and I feel a need to pass on the favor.

As for new news for this post, earlier this month several of us hit the Grand National Roadster show.  For those that are unaware, this is the “grand daddy” of car shows for the hot rod industry.  The best of the best were seen here and many endeavored to win the coveted title of “Americas Most Beautiful Roadster”.

As always there are daily drivers and trailer queens, many nostalgia cars (many I’ve actually seen as a young guy), old lake cars, dragsters and of course the modern pro built Hot Rods.  Looks like this year the show cars are coming back to the simpler but perfectly done old school style.  There were only a few of the “Billet Cars” we’ve seen in the past.

Although by now this is old news I still feel congratulations are in order.  This year the winner or the AMBR is “Possessed,” the beautiful ’33 roadster owned by Mike and Dianna Dingman and built by Scott’s Hot Rods and Customs in Oxnard, California.AMBR 2010 I’ve had the pleasure of meeting some of the staff from Scotts, and I must say, not only are the talented but a darn nice bunch of guys.
