G' Day Folks,

Built this a few months back, AMT Chevy 2 'Rat Packer' kit, doesn't represent an actual AWB, just thought I would build one because they look pretty cool :)
Paint is a Testors Silver base with a few coats of Clear Red, a few details thrown in and decals by Slixx
Cheers
Ray

Nice job on pulling this one together. Love the color and those tall velocity stacks...
Not much of an altered wheel based follower, but this one looks the part. Great execution!

Looks real nice. Pretty simple kit but does build up pretty nice with a little effort

Thanks guys ;)

Philip, the colour used for the base is Testors Sterling Silver 3D Metallic (Rattle can) and Tamiya Clear Red (Rattle can)
From memory I shot around three coats of the silver for the base followed by several coats of the clear red to get the desired result, hope this helps mate.

This would be one wild ride. Your paint looks great and the stance is perfect. Nicely done.
