I finally finished my surfboard for the Tiki Bird model I did earlier in the year. I used 2 halves of a Monogram garbage truck kit and glued the pieces together. The surfboard had to be smoothed, sanded, and had scratchbuilt fins added. The graphics and wood grain is handpainted.

Your T-Bird i wrote in his thread is awesome and i like it. The surfboard is the "last needed detail" for it! That rocks!
