My first attempt at weathering...still have a bit to finish with dullkote, but its pretty close. This started out as a revell 37 / 38 ford pickup Using box parts, some hand cast wheels and tires (thanks again Dan!!) this 6 wheeled rusty rodent was born. Simple build for me, a small chop, but left the rear glass intact and tinted it with limo film tint. Home done gas tank with custom filler , mounted in the stock location. Frame was Z'd in the rear and front axle was dropped and stretched.

That looks super cool, and it makes Doctor Cranky do the Curly on the floor! Now all you have to do is build more! :D
