Syd Mead’s Sentinel 280 slowly coming to life.
One of Syd Mead’s most famous car illustration is actually being built.
The original illustration is the top picture. And the master himself is in the bottom picture, next to a model version of its design.
Syd Mead super fan Mel Francis has built the model. And intends to build a fully drivable version soon!
Which would be quite an achievement.
I am aslo a big fan of Mr.Mead and have had the pleasure of meeting him twice over the years.
And I must admit, I did buy that little Hotwheel version of his Sentinel Limousine a few years ago…
