That looks great. love the paint.  I have the one that says 1/25 but I was guessing 1/18.  Glad to finally know the correct scale.

 

Be back in a few, going after an ice cream bar, yummm.

Thank you, Ray.  Yup.  Make the hinge from brass wire and Evergreen tubing.  I was thing of trying to pull some cotton real thin so when the cover is open the cotton would flow out like condensation on a warm day.  Maybe I'm just crazy, though.

i love this. the colors are bright and those little bells crack me up.as for the cotton condensation i did the same thing in reverse using cotton.instead of cold condensation i made smoke coming from a grill. i streched it thin and lightly painted it with some gray primer you could maybe paint it with a little flat white for your effect.here is what mine looks like. i guess we are both a little crazy.HEH.HEH.HEH.

OK, this is one of dumbest kits I've ever seen! It's so dumb I just went on eBay and bought me one. Your evil Jim, for building such a dumb, but cool looking vehicle. Then posting on this site so a febul minded person like me could not resist buying one.

Thanks Scott.  I got the kit in a trade.  I took it mostly because I never saw it before.  It's  a silly kit but goes together pretty well.

The paint was an exercise in fogging.
