So here's my interpretation of a pre-historic Monogram model ;) I've done almost no extra work on it, besides replacing the air intake, exhaust pipes, rear wheels and the steering column. Everything else is OOB, I painted it with Tamiya acrylics and weathered it with Mig washes, different pigments and some graphite dust. Did some dry-brushing here and there, a bit of chipping, some streaks etc. No big deal ;) Since the model is pretty basic I really didn't want to complicate with wires and everything else. It was a just-for-fun build that lasted about 12 hours through few days ;)

Here's what it should llok like OOB:

Here are some shots of my model:

With all that rake, it should kinda coast downhill all the time, huh? Pretty cool.
