    It's County Fair time for us and as much as I enjoy being there with the children, last night was date night and my wife and I spent the entire evening together!

    I like it just fine. Very nicely done.
    What wheels are these?

    Thank you all for the interest and comments I do appreciate them. 
    Glass is always a concern for realism, but it is a model and i'm not trying to hide that fact. Modelhaus has vacu windows available but again it is a model. Dust on the window would be cool except I just got done cleaning them.
    As for figures, I have done drivers  before but only in a race car that depicted action. When you go to a 1:1 car show, rarely do you see people sitting in the car. Most often they are lined up behind the cars in camp chairs trying their best not to talk to anyone!
    I like doing the rusty look and wish I did not use so much light color under the green, but like so many things I live and learn. This is not what I imagined when I started this build, although I do like the way it turned out. Sometimes it is best to let the creative juices flow and see where they lead!

    A pretty quick build, not quite finished but enough to share here. 
    Jimmy Flintstone resin body, Model railroad paint using salt and water color to get the patina effect.
    Original Craftsman glass, chassis and tub.
    Pegasus wheels
    BMF, scoffed for patina effect.
    I used the original tail light but have ordered the four light bumper from Modelhaus. When it arrives I'll replace this one and detail the interior also.




    Thanks for looking comments welcome.
