I messed up the left side and have to repaint it.  It's drying now, so I have to wait until it's dry to repaint the side.

This is another Tin Indian that I want to replicate.  I never knew that this car even existed until I saw this picture on the net.

Here are some pics of this build.

I had to glue the top in place and use putty to fill the voids.  I also had to cut the top of the body so the top would fit where it's supposed to set.
