I painted the cab on this back in may just before I returned to work from my COVID time off, and have just finished it. Colors are all testors spray bombs, inca gold, lime ice and emerald green. Used tires from double take replicas, and can’t remember where the deck plate came from, thanks for looking.

That is slick looking, nice paint job! What paint/ finish is that on the fuel tanks?

To be honest , after it’s dry, I wear gloves to attach them, then never touch them. So far though, all the tanks I’ve done still look just as good as the day I painted them.

Nice Tom.....where did you get the interior fans from ?

I used to get them from double take replicas, but sadly, KJ isn’t making parts anymore .
