Oh boy, I am loving the idea and the look of this one.  Great styrene eye candy on a Friday afternoon.  Thank you, now take your vitamins and keep it going, please.

Thanks guys its turning out better than i thought. Here are some updated pics. I've been doing alot of painting this weekend and started to put it together getting close to be finished. i have a question this model kit came with metal pegs so that the wheels can turn what kind of glue would you use so that the wheels will hold on tight.

I keep coming back to this one.  You've given it lots of attitude and charm.  Excellent.  It's also different.
