my cousin recently lost her battle with cancer. i decided to build a tribute to her for my aunt the trunk will double as a picture frame. i choose diecast for a reason so dont scold me on that.
this is what it started it out as.

Sorry to hear of your loss.....

That color really pops and it don't matter if it's die-cast. It's looking like a nice tribute to your cousin.

My friend,

Such a motive as inspiration deserves great respect. The paint job looks very smooth so I think it is going in the right direction.

Thanks,
