Thanks for the kind words Art, Tony, Glu and Alyn. Much appreciated. As mentioned earlier, this just needs a bit more weathering and I've got some Rust n Dust coming in the mail to get that done. Some of the items completed since last post: dual wheels, weathered the posters a bit, fruit is in place, match bin to the right of the entrance door complete with red tipped matches, battery box on the driver's side running board to name a few. Finally able to get some pictures up\ although I wish my camera was working properly because it has a much better macro feature.

Enjoy and thanks for following along and your interest.

Thanks Russ. This has been fun working on this with all of the different building materials. As stated by Alan earlier, It is sort of a rolling diorama and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy working on a diorama. Its been awhile.

Here's a few more pics. Thanks again.

Thanks for the comments fellas. A bit more to add. I masked off the wiper pattern and fogged the windshield with dull coat sprayed at an arm's length. I've also been using Tamiya weathering powders to 'age' the overall vehicle and have a bunch more to do.

Here's a pic of the windshield.

Well, I did bring this back out for a bit more weathering and a few more items. I've been wanting to add something to the front and I just couldn't think of it until yesterday.

Stay tuned as I add more additional details and grime.

Rob - I use printing plate for a number of things. It is so easy to bend, cut, drill and glue. I use alot of .005" stuff that I get from a local print shop. They are used and have a finished aluminum shine on one side. If you check out my Fiat build, you'll see alot of it in use.

I work for a huge printing company and never would have thought of using those. Not sure if they'd like me taking one home since they get money for recycling them but maybe I'll slice a chunk or two out of one. Keep up the good work!

This thing is like a detail buffet; so many things to look at and you're afraid to miss out on something. Luckily we can come back for more.

 

Fascinating, beautiful model.
