This is Monograms old custom show rod , features the German helmet Roof ,a Mercedes-Benz air craft Engine with 6 trumpet exhaust , and machine guns on the side and German Iron Cross wheels ! This is paint with an automotive Red Metallic , then a red Candy coat . I didnt place the decals as, they tend to yellow over time . This is a tribute model to my late brother Larry , who kindly bought this model for me as a kid , one of my first ! Special thanks to my good freind Randy of wRECKS BY rANDY for finding and generously providing me with this rare model now .
