NICE & SHINNY!!!

I sprayed Rocket Van with a few coats of Testors Diamond Dust Silver. This is the main color for the Van.

Next, I masked off most of the Van with Blue Masking Tape...

Then I sprayed Tamiya's Mica Red in the unmasked areas. Here is the Van as it looks Now...

SILVER FLAMES!!!

The Flame Decals are from the Bronco kit. I cut off the front of the decals to fit them on the Van's sides...

Next I applied the fronts of the decals just below the headlights. Unfortunately there wasn't enough decal to go between the headlights and the signal lights. So I used a Fine Line Permanent Marker and drew the 2 black lines between the headlights and the signal lights. Looks like the decal is all one piece now!

That decal really sets off the entire finish on the body. Without you telling us about the work with the pen, we wouldn't be able to tell. Nicely done Ira. What's next?
