superb phillip

One of my all-time favorites - more than likely a George Bartel.

Phillip,

Nice job removing "the gutter" from this Cougar illustration - Well Done! I too know how much work that can be, especially when there's an actual gap that may be left between the pages to make the proportion of the image itself correct. "Gutter" is a new term to me, but I like it a lot and (with your permission) that is what it will be known as to me in the future!

Ewww, this thread is right up my alley.

In fact, the first two posts are scans that I made from my collection. The first being a Ford Annual Report and the second from an issue of Sports Car Graphic. That Cougar illustration is a two page spread and it took me awhile to remove the "gutter" in Photoshop.

- Phillip




The 1968 AMT Shelby model box art that is posted in this thread is actually a scan that I did from my rather "weathered" original box, and which I had posted on Forum 1.0 back in the day. Check out what it looked like when I first scanned it. It didn't have a gutter, but it wasn't very pretty after the initial scan:



But after a lot of cleaning of the "dirt" and removing of the box wrinkles, it turned out pretty nice:

Excellent job Kieth - it's kinda fun using the "rubber stamp" tool in Photoshop, or if a section is missing, finding another part of the illustration/photo to grab from.

Feel free to use "gutter" - that is a term from my old paste-up days before the computer.

Phillip

I was fairly sure you posted this originally. Just wanted to start a few new threads that use to be on the old forum.

Thanks for the input ;)

No problem Chris - I scan and post stuff from my collection so it can be shared.

If I remember correctly, the Sports Car Graphic article that the Cougar illustration was from was written by Jerry Titus.

I will post some more stuff that I have and try to find some things I haven't posted yet.

Great thread!

Cool Castrol ad from a racing program I have.

More effective than photography, in my very biased opinion  ;D

Looks like they included those ten spokes as an optional custom touch in the regular AMT annual Mustang kit from '68. Interesting they didn't include the more correct wheel covers instead.  ;D

This is a scan from one of my most prized possessions - a calendar that AMT offered in 1968 that featured the box art from all of their kits that year.

Here is another cool Bartell illustration that was for a Ferrari vs Ford article.

Timely, with the movie coming out soon.

Ok, last one for tonight.

This is from a brochure that Lincoln-Mercury put out celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Mercury Cougar.

Excuse my french - but this just kicks ass.

Not old, but worth a look.

Spotted in car enthusiast magazine recently.

Very nicely done.

Ah yes, Sports Car Graphic. What a great magazine. Ill have to go dig up my collection from the mid 60's and see what's in there. I forgot I even had them.

Thanks Phillip
