First of all, love it! Second of all, when you have a second, could you message me a good picture of the headlights? Cheers!

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

I agree. Though every time I see "the queen" it reminds me of the game "Cooties".

If I may make a suggestion? Dale is the kind of guy to buy a giant magnetic sign, or use adecal. He would not pay to paint a logo on his truck. Also, this is a cartoon vehicle and there's a hard definition line around the sign. 

On this model, I suggest you forgo the usual custom decal and go with a label. Use a printable label sheet to print his truck sign on. This will give it an edge and the look of a banner of magnetic sign. As a by product, you can print the license plate on the same sheet. (Bonus!)
