The customs of Daniel Hew, aka danielmodelmeister: Ford GT LM "America the Beautiful"...

We don't ordinarily dedicate a custom post to only one model, but Daniel Hew does not do ordinary customs.

Those of you who have followed the blog for awhile know Daniel's work.  He blew away the competition in our BMW E30 M3 contest, and no customs shown here at Lamley have gotten more comments.

Well, Daniel is at it again, and this week he sent in photos of his latest custom, a Hot Wheels Ford GT LM done up to celebrate the ol' Stars & Stripes.  And while the paint and decal job is flawless, what sets Daniel's work apart from anyone else is how he can transform a whole Hot Wheels casting into a series of opening parts and tiny realistic details.  This is truly amazing work, and it deserves its own post.

(And in case you are wondering, he did submit a piece to our police contest.  Prepare yourself...)


(Thanks Daniel.)
