I remember that kit.....Built one a few years ago.....I had a lot of time getting the tank steps to line up....I made it into more of an American setup, but the I kept the RH drive......I painted mine black, too.....

 

Yours looks great with that paint on it, that bull bar looks pretty good, too....How did you get that effect, or were the metal flakes already in the paint????Awesome job, Man.....

I must say it looks pretty good mate, I looked at buying this kit but something about it put me off, however having seen one built and painted i'm going to go out and buy myself one of these as well :D
