Perseverance is (fortunately) one of my better attributes that helps counteract my seemingly ingrained proclivity for procrastination.

And, so, its only been for at least 3 decades that I’ve dreamed of opening a new, stand-alone fine art gallery that is totally different than most of the fine art items as seen at the ‘original’ TD website.

Now, please go to: where you can peruse what amounts to artwork I’ve created over the past half-century in watercolors, oils, acrylics, gouache and other mediums and in a wide variety of subject matter.

Hopefully, you will like what you see, bookmark the new Tom Daniel Fine Art web site; and please tell your friends.

The Baddest of the Bad ‘old school’ custom chopper kits in BIG 1/8 scale - the GRIM REAPER - which I designed way back in 1974 is NOW IN STOCK in the Model kit department at the ‘TD’ store!

Check out the out-of-sight all-new box art - not by ME, but artwork by # 1 son - Kelly Daniel. This is the first of hopefully many new box art works by Kelly in the future.


Revell-Monogram did good and delivered the BEER WAGON kits a bit AHEAD of schedule! They are now available in the TD store Model Kit Department for your modeling pleasure, fun and enjoyment. Hoist one for me!

BONNEVILLE and the BLUE FLAME: Recently made the trip to Bonneville to attend the 40th anniversary celebration and dinner party honoring the October 23, 1970 running of the rocket powered LSR vehicle "BLUE FLAME" - driven by the late Gary Gabelich - to a World Land Speed record of: 622.407 MPH in the 'flying mile'; and 630.388 for the flying kilometer record. Those record speeds lasted for more than a decade.

A very well-done slide show was presented by Dick Keller, with his (then) partner at Reaction Dynamics - Pete Farnsworth, adding many interesting aspects and details about the building of the BLUE FLAME.

I took along with me, my model of the AMERICAN WAY LSR vehicle - for some pictures of it ON THE SALT! It drew quite a crowd, with many wanting to have their pictures taken with it. Everyone said they'd like to see it FULL SIZE - and making LSR runs. Me too!

As ALWAYS, THANK YOU for all the letters and e mail with your GREAT stories of your childhood modeling escapades! I DO read them all - and I WILL reply - (though sometimes it takes some time to do that).

Kind regards,
