Where do I start? Are the rear fenders, front bumper, visor, and rear light bars scratchbuilt or aftermarket? I imagine you started with the AITM hood, but cut out and scratchbuilt the headlight buckets? The headlight decals are a major downside to that conversion, but you overcame it. Lastly, the graphics are very well done, what is paint vs. decals? Metalwork Alclad? What a nice model! She’s a beauty!

The rear fenders I made,then cast them, the front bumper is made out of aluminum then polished. The rear light bar and air ride over box  I 3D printed. The hood I did get from AITM then cut the head lights out and casted a bucket. As for the paint it’s all paint,tape all strips with masking tape. The decals where printed on my Ink jet printer. The rims,steps and grille where painted with molotow marker sprayed though my airbrush. Thanks again and any more ? I will do my best answer the thanks again
