My first attempt at weathering...still have a bit to finish with dullkote, but its pretty close. This started out as a revell 37 / 38 ford pickup Using box parts, some hand cast wheels and tires (thanks again Dan!!) this 6 wheeled rusty rodent was born. Simple build for me, a small chop, but left the rear glass intact and tinted it with limo film tint. Home done gas tank with custom filler , mounted in the stock location. Frame was Z'd in the rear and front axle was dropped and stretched.
