Hey I like this, a good contrast between flake an rust !! Got to ask how did you do the roof ? Cool looking build I also like that leopard skin interior.......Yes........ Lowlife  ! !

If it moves, Chrome it !! .....  If it don't move,  Chrome it anyway ! ! ! !

thanks low! someone finally gets it. the roof was a long process only because I did it twice but had done wrinkling during that time and the colors weren't right. but a few long cross eyed nights taping with jammy dog tape . this tape is hard to see on a silver base. thanks again

Junkie likes the realism with the worn/rust paint, and those wheels pull it together. Clean build any pics of under the hood?...

Definitely different and the roof is well executed but how did the steering wheel get on the passenger side in the second photo?

I missed this one first time by. This is a very cool model. I love the style of this build. Nicely done.
