That decal really sets off the entire finish on the body. Without you telling us about the work with the pen, we wouldn't be able to tell. Nicely done Ira. What's next?
I'm working on the Tires & Wheels and the Driver & Passenger Figures...

I am using 4 Fat Front Deals Wheels Tires on the Rocket Van. I am trying to fit them inside the body sides without sticking out. Not much room for these Wide Little Tires...
I started by trimming off the excess on the wheels. I saved about 3/8th inch width here! Now they will fit in much closer to the chassis.
Next I glued the Tires together with Zap-A-Gap Green Label Glue.
Then I sanded down the Ridge on the sidewalls of the Tires. I saved about an 1/8th inch width here!
Now they should fit inside the the body just right...

Wallace & Gromit will be the drivers of the ROCKET VAN!
Since Wallace & Gromit built thier own ROCKET and flew it to the Moon, I figured they were qualified for the Rocket Van.
The W & G Heads came from the Anti-Pesto Van Model, from the Curse of the Were-Rabbit Movie. I painted them with Acrylics.
Then I sprayed them with Testors DullCoat Spray. I painted the Eyes, Teeth and Gromit's Nose with High Gloss Clear.
Gromit is not too sure about this...

I WONDER...WHAT'S NEXT?
