Just finished! Changed the wheels/tyres, sprayed with 3 can colours at the same time, added 'Flower Power' decals, and loaded 3D rack with two scratchbuilt Boogie Boards, Cola Cooler, ice box for food and stretch netting.

This is fantastic! I love the roof rack! I'm glad to see these little boogers still interests builders. I have two of these projects goin, one as the Little fire truck and the other is the mystery machine!

Well Anthony (my middle name) Thanks for the comments. We don't see these AMT kits here in the UK very often, so I bought this as soon as it popped up on ebay UK.

The 3D rack was from Shapeways the 3D printers site.
