Seems like you guys liked this. At least one of you showed interest in wanting to get one. But I know the artist and I know none of you did get one. Why not show the love to a fellow Blues Bros fan and check it out again. She has another Blues Brothers poster on there as well.
I think you're right! I think the "3rd upright" on the poster blumo's pushbar is an artist-rendition of the driver-side bumperette on the ERTL:
I was pleased to see that the poster has screen-accurate smooth fenders tops (while the ERTL has fender-mount turn signals). My only thought was it needed a wiggly antenna. And Chelsea jumped on it and sent me a sample pic which was 100% awesome - it even included the blumo-correct black putty base.
From a purely technical perspective, the poster blumo has some concerns. For example, look at the arrow I placed on the fender. There's no crease there on a Monaco fender. And "cop suspension" wouldn't include coil springs. But these things didn't rub me the wrong way. There's so much other stuff on the poster (the quotes, and the actors names), this poster seemed designed to bring up points of interest for discussion.
Chelsea was a riot. When she sent my order info, she wrote: > For the label? I'll use glue... Strong stuff.
I wish all the folks working on my blumo were as quick and funny. your friend in blumo related accessories, arthur
