Not my cup of tea at all, but I can recognize and respect good work when I see it, and that is some outstanding craftsmanship! Well done!

amazing work sir, the body mods and paint job are really outstanding!, I also really like that you used the old school mag wheels wrapped in low pro whitewalls.

 Dale Gribble, your painting 1to1 paint jobs I also paint 1to1cars and motorcycles and I use the same materials I use on the 1to1 on the model cars, same paints, tapes , ,Iwanta airbrush, I use bare foil to do some of the curves in some of my lay outs, I guess there's lots of things I do to paint the way I do , but it's easier for me to explain when answering a question, So if you have any questions id be more than happy to answer or to give any Tips , thanks dale !
