I contacted Vince again and he explained he had found time to work on several attempts at making a small model for himself over 2004 and they were starting to crowd the house. His wife suggested he should offer some of them on eBay. He decided to follow her suggestion. As it turned out, his first auction went very well and it motivated Vince to make more models for other fans as well as keep a few for himself, of course.
Over the years, his models have gone through several changes including several redesigns of the Tantalus - each time getting closer in appearance and details to the one in the movie…
Since then, Vince constantly improves the details on his model and on the Tantalus. A recent version saw the redesign of the rear lamp so it would match the one on the Wah Chang model and the Tantalus underwent a change in its colouring and details.
Vince's latest offering features even more detail and intricacy…
More and more, one feels like one is looking at the same model George displays to his guests in the classic Pal movie, but there is an added charm in the smaller scale that Vince has chosen.
Vince's models are handmade and feature brass railings and brass dish as well as velvet-upholstered seat. The base, seat, motor housing and console are resin cast from parts he hand-sculpted and are then hand-finished and hand-painted.
