AFOS - Skip Jackson

Post by Hursty » Sun Jun 05, 2011 3:03 am

Hi there modellers.
Aussie Skip Jackson is currently battling Cancer. I have, with the permission of Pete Murphy, come up with this design. It will be printed by an all round great bloke... Leon Coleman and built in the form of an R & R Diecast in 1/25th. It will be officially auctioned via Wade Aunger and Jennie Walsh on Sprintcarworld.com It will be a 1 of 1 in that scale and potentially available in 1/18th as a kit in the future. All proceeds of this 1/25th Auction will go to Skip.

What do you guys think?

My pleasure, thanks :) Skip entertained me a lot when I got to see him run down here on Victorian tracks.
