THE DEAL'S WHEELS PRINTS ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE 

Dave Deal succumbed to cancer and passed away on 10-16-08. He is greatly missed. Unfortunately the Deal's Wheels prints are no longer available. I am leaving this page up as a reference for these prints. I did not keep track of how many prints were sold, but it wasn't many. The prints were available from 2002 through 2008. Most of the orders were for individual prints. Some collectors ordered the entire set and it's my guess that less than 10 entire sets were sold, so a complete set is extremely rare.

Deal's Wheels signed prints direct from the Big Deal himself!

This is truly a unique opportunity for any Deal's Wheels or Dave Deal artwork collector. The Big Deal is very thorough about hanging onto his original artwork or making high quality photographs for his records. Dave has now recreated the original artwork electronically from his collection of artwork and photos and has made a series of prints of the artwork for the entire Deal's Wheels series; plus 2 extra subjects related to Deal's Wheels as described below!

We all know and love the box art of the Deal's Wheels series, but as nice as the boxes are, the offset printing process used in the 70's to create boxes lost a lot of the detail  and "crispness"of the original artwork. Plus the original artwork was done in a larger size, so the box art is actually a reduction of the originals. But now you can purchase these fine quality prints and see the artwork as it was originally created, in all of its full blown detail and coloring and without the text and logos that were overlayed in a later process! I asked Dave to describe the print process as it is an expensive process on special paper. Here is his reply: "The prints are to be handled just as watercolors are, and they are just as permanent as watercolor paints. They are Gicleť water based colors on premium paper. It is best to frame and cover with UV glass to prevent sun fading, and certainly not to place them in direct sunlight. These requirements are the same for everyday watercolor paintings. The prints are bright and colorful, and are better reproductions than the originals, just as you have already stated in the text."

Each print you purchase will be signed by Dave Deal. This is not a reproduced signature, but an actual hand-signing on each print you purchase. Prints will be shipped directly to you from Dave.


IMPORTANT NOTE: PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 4 WEEKS FOR DELIVERY.

Dave Deal does not keep the prints in stock, he prints each one to order. The order is placed through me (Tres Wright/ webmaster). Once the prints are paid for, I relay the order to Dave and he prints them, signs them and ships them directly to the buyer from his home in California. He has other obligations some of which include traveling, so sometimes it can take several weeks for an order to be shipped.

ALL SALES ARE FINAL, NO RETURNS EXCEPT IN CASE OF DAMAGE.

Since these prints are made specifically for each unique order, they are not returnable. As far as I know everyone that has received these prints has been very happy with them! I try to follow up on each order to see if the buyer is satisfied. I don't always get a response, but when I do it has always been very positive!

Dave Deal model box artwork- Incredible Flying Machine

Please note that this is not part of the original Deal's Wheels series, but was a later reissue that used the mold for the original "Lucky Pierre" model. However, this artwork was done by Dave Deal for Revell.


Snoopy and the Red Baron dogfight

This is not actually artwork, it is a photograph that Dave manipulated on his computer to give it a rendered appearance. The photograph is of two models in Dave's possession. At one time Revell asked him to investigate doing a version of the Lucky Pierre model that was to have Snoopy as the pilot. The idea was eventually dropped by Revell due to licensing issues, but Dave still has the prototype model and Snoopy figure. The Baron model is also a model that Dave built many years ago.
