Love how you tied everything together from the bumpers, shifter, and Hula girl, even the steering wheel. Really like the cooler. Where did you find that?

'Wow' seems like an inadequate term here, but that's pretty much what I'm saying out loud. I really love the safari window details and the wrapped steering wheel spokes.

...any chance you'd offer any more of those PE safari frames for sale?

Thank you again for your compliments!

The lettering under the paint is made with Letraset letters. About cooler: it's totally scratchbuilt. I used styrene to make the box itself. Before painting I wrapped it with foil. Then after painting it was easy to get that worn look. Those little metal parts are also scratch built. Couple of those are pe parts.

Well, actually I'm going to have these frames for sale. I do have my own little pe brand. I just have a couple of different products, but this will be the next product!

One of the coolest models I've ever seen! Perfect combination of thinking outside of the box and the talent to pull off the visions in your head! Standing ovation!!

Outstanding! How did you get the look of bare metal on the lower body?

With... bare metal foil! After I laid down the foil, I sanded it with fine paper. After that I washed it with very very very thin black. It "turns the shine off nicely. I think it's more realistic that way.

Excellent workmanship! That hula girl is unbelievable. I want the name of your eye doctor B) .
Your technique for the bare metal is fantastic. I may be borrowing that for a build that I'm currently working on.

I'm eagerly awaiting your next masterpiece!
