This is an old Monogram kit from the early 80's and had all the plating in gold, which I stripped.
Paint is rattle can from Halfords and is a BMW metallic black.
The wheels came from the Boyd Coddington AMT 57 Chevy. They looked dodgy on a 1:25 car, but on this truck (1:24) they fit well.
Engine is wired and plumbed and has a Detail Master aircleaner.
Scallops are Fred Cady decals
