Bluebird 1000mph Concept Car

Designed By Ken Norris

Painted By Arthur Benjamins

Front Cover Artwork For "The British Are coming" By Mike Varndell

 

This is my scratchbuilt model of the Bluebird Concept Car which was the brainchild of the late Ken Norris, one of the original designers and builders of Bluebird CN7 for Donald Campbell.

The beautiful artwork was painted by Arthur Benjamins and features on a new book by Mike Varndell.

The model has been constructed with the aid of the front and rear shots of the artwork alone.

This is only the 3rd model to have been built and I'm not aware of any attempt by any other modeller. 

More close up pictures are available at my website http://www.themodelbuilder.co.uk/page4.php?view=thumbnailList&category=7

Made from my own plans and cut by hand, all the bodywork is made from sheet styrene.

The decals are handcut and are a very close representation of the original artwork.

Completely hand painted, the model will be a unique feature within the Donald Campbell collection.

The main rear centre exhaust houses a model engine which is visible through the front air intakes and provides an exciting view of this futuristic vehicle which was actually drawn up for consideration of an attempt at a 1000mph speed record.

The vehicle is 16cm long and 8 cm tall.

A low start should maintain some interest in this completely original and enthusiastically constructed model.

THE ARTWORK IS NOT FOR SALE AND IS HERE FOR REFERENCE ONLY
