As some of you already know, last month I was moving the California Dreaming diorama and took a fall when the step ladder collapsed with me.  The dio was rather damaged, but I thought I would be able to repair the gray car.  Turns out I was just not going to make a comeback to the condition I needed to enter it in a contest later this month down in Phoenix, Arizona.  

Several guys had already told me that they thought the gray coupe was too pristine anyway; so I decided to exchange it for the heavily weathered coupe that I just finished recently.  

Here is the new look for California Dreaming.

Here is hoping you guys, AND the judges down in Phoenix like it.

Hi John,

I really think using the new weathered Coupe is a much, much, MUCH better idea, and personally, I think if you don't come away with a first place, then the judges need a good "talking" too out the back of the building...

That's great and the effect is great, just looks like it's floating there I the cloud like magic.
