That's fantastic! The weathering is perfect. What did you use to create the body?
Wow. Very cool. An amazing project.

love the subject and the weathering. Great build. 👍
Simply outstanding build. I love the belly tank lakesters and this is one superb example.
Oh, nicely executed!!
Very nice detail!
I can't repeat the expletives that I used when I texted you earlier so I'll just say that I really, really, really love it!
The colors, the weathering, the minimal lettering is all perfect. I also still can't get over what a perfect find that dashboard was!
This is outstanding! A work of art worthy of display in a museum. Great work, thanks for sharing.
Thanks, guys....the broken tie rod end has since been fixed...this was one wild build, I'm not sure I want to go to this extreme any time soon again. Ten pounds in a five pound box to be sure. That gas tank is the third one I built to get it sized right to fit under the body....but it turned out petty nice, if I do say so myself. A belly tanker was on the list of "to-do" builds for many years.... -RRR
Wow! You made my day with this one! A masterpiece for sure!
Very very cool!
Great weathering, nicely done.
Mate, I've never met you but I reckon if I did we would get long like a house on fire! This is absolutely magnificent! The fact that no particular part stands out because they have all weathered uniformly - that is EXACTLY the patina you find when you crawl into some old shed and dig something out - and believe me, I've done that plenty of times Aussie shed patina is exactly the same as American barn patina.
You are dead right abut the 10 pounds of potatoes in a five pound bag - if I remember rightly that is why I stopped building mine years ago. I've got no excuse now!
Thanks fro sharing this with everyone - it is a true masterpiece.
One last thing - I love that you used that plate out of the Revell chassis parts pack - I have had several of these over the years and for some reason it is still one of my v favourite parts - it just speaks to me. Great to see it in use.
This is so wonderful that I am at a loss for words to describe it.
Perfect barn find finish, outstanding.
Great build and patina
That looks amazing! Super nice job!
Aggreed! If the devil is in the details, this must be Satan himself...
An outstanding lesson in modeling, scratch building and history, your model will kill.
(aka forged in fire)
Woah. This is outstanding! LOVE IT.
I will be sad not to see this at MAGS next year. Seeing your work and KK's was always something I looked forward to at that show. Terrific work.
