Perfect !

Those ol' Scouts were rust magnets.

For some reason I remember them with a

CB antenna aerial whip with a grungy tennis ball.

Certainly not my style, but the weathering looks extremely well done.

Nice job on the Scout. I know with weathering that its very easy to over do it but yours looks very natural and not over done.

Dr. Cranky would be proud! :D

The rust perforations around the wheelwells and along the rockers are very well done. And I love the missing trim strip pieces aith the mounting holes exposed. Nice job. B)

Very well done. Looks just like they did about 5 years after they were new!

Thanks everyone for the great comments. I had a lot of fun with this one. Platerpants, I think I only paid $15 for it at a hobby shop in Omaha.

Well done, I also like the subtle age spots and weathering.
