hi all ,
 
i started with this  mercedes lieferwagen kit , and turned it into a rusted panelrod
it was a quick thing only build 2 full days on it

the boxart / kit , this kit was like this all separate , got it in a bigger stash buy

the content

i removed the rear arches and used revell 32 ford arches , made custom runing boards and cut the original front wings open ...

then painted it old green and got it high gloss

the paint was hard or so i thought ... when fitting the chassis and interiour i held the body with a cloth
so i would not have fingerprints on the gloss ...
in the end there was a slight imprint of the cloth structure in the paint because i had to aply pressure to the chassis for the glue to set ..
some would have thought .. leave it and on pics it would not have been visible ..
but i was like grrrr and in the end made the hood rusted ...
then looking at it i felt the contrast was way to big , such high gloss and then a completely rusted hood ..
that looked to forced

so i just made the whole car rusted :)

here is the end result

the white walls are hand painted by me with enamel paint and got a wash over them , made the visor from styrene (old front bumpers)

made a custom grille with v8 logo in the middle and some real mesh behind it and cut some lenses for the taillights

the rear fender shape (the ducktale) dont start about that hahaha i hate it myself but i onl have 2 fenders left and they are both the same side , otherwise i would have lengthened them so they run through..
so yes the rear fenders look weird i know :)

Be careful displaying that with the For Sale signs on it.  I buy 1:1s that look like that !   :)

 

Great work and it only makes me more determined to find a few of those in the US

I think it looks better in that garage/shop than a shiny one would.  They really seem to compliment each other.
