INTERGALACTICAL DASHBOARD!!!


I found some Real Nice Round Head Pins, Made from Glass, in Dolores's pin cushin. Looks like these would make Great Control Levers!

Posted Image

I drilled holes in the Dash and glued the cut down pins in. I also cut out the back of the seat and fit it in place.

Posted Image

I added some Gauge Decals and a few details and the Intergalactical Dashboard is done!

NICE & SHINNY!!!

I sprayed Rocket Van with a few coats of Testors Diamond Dust Silver. This is the main color for the Van.

Posted Image

Next, I masked off most of the Van with Blue Masking Tape...

Posted Image

Then I sprayed Tamiya's Mica Red in the unmasked areas. Here is the Van as it looks Now...
