    Thanks for the link, Amar2300.
    Another company that 3D prints figures and accessories in 1/24 is: http://www.modernarmies-in-miniatures.de/

    That's looking great! Are those really lit up with LED or is it just the photo?

    In a rush to assemble and finish this model I didn't notice the slight warpidge of the cab shell part and the alignment issue with the bed.
    The front/right fender area is warped so slightly that I didn't see it until after it was assembled. The rear bed misalignment was due to how the rear/right leaf spring sits on top of the rear axle.
    I carefully removed the rear axle from the leaf spring, ok. Then I was pulling out the floor part from the cab and it sort of exploded. Luckily every thing landed on the bench top and on my lap so no damage. I just pulled on the magic part and it all just disassembled itself very, very rapidly.

    Next update is the lights, front lights lenses, and tail light casted blocks.
    The reflective head light parabolas are painted with Molotow liquid chrome. The four lense parts are clear resin. The front are convex and the backs are concave, man these guys don't miss the details.
    The tail light blocks are also clear resin. They fit flush on the outside but have huge gaps around the edges. They are also left and right, top and bottom. This was discovered by dry fitting first. I painted the backs of these with the Molotow pens then masked off the little, reverse light, rectangles and painted the outside with clear red acrylic.

    Finally finished the Hyundai Azera (with Grandeur grille though). It represents an imported vehicle into North America at port of entry status. Basically still in customs.

    I've done a little more on this during the week.
    The posts for the side, rear view mirrors are not included in the kit so I made them from wire as suggested in the kit's I-sheets.
    The base color is MM1714 (FS-34127) Forest Green, shot through my AB. After I made a new swatch that color just looked the best.
