1/16th scale Rat Rod VW

Recommended Posts

I have been gone a while from this forum, long story short all of my hobbies except for my basic tools got lost in a move. This kit was the only one that showed up to my new home because it was in a regular plain box that I had packed with my families clothes. My comeback to the hobby will be a rat rod vw. I thought that I would do this mainly because I do have some paint left over mostly flat, and that weathered vehicles look a lot more realistic than show cars.  We will see what happens, this is where I am right now. Have put in a few months to get to this point.

since i lost all my sign foam made a surf board out of balsa wood, the grey one is almost done, thought I would make a bigger one, still carving out of the balsa wood.
