I got the Egyptian queen painted for the top of the aquarium...Have some shading to do on the leaves and paint the round parts for the top and bottom but getting more done...Was going to put this in the cab of the truck but also like the looks of placement in the '32 as well.

Now trying to figure out placement for the wings, I am thinking of having them here even with the dragon wings as well....Just how high on the sides to go???

I think the wings and the dragon will look good with the hand painted graphics, I am looking at adding more on the sides but do not want to go over board with all the color on the wings....Planning on doing some weathering as well to make it look old...

Getting some color on the interior of this thing now, getting all the pieces painted, this is the first shot of the brilliant gold on the seat backs, will paint accents after this dries....

Thank you Gator, hope to have more soon. There are so many parts to my extravagant builds that it almost needs an inventory done every month to keep the parts in order. I am getting some progress with the paint, however a long long way to go yet. Still have not gotten all the body work done that I want to to smooth everything out yet and having an issue with the final paint color so hang in there with me on this one still gonna be a while.

just like this hieroglyphic someone Photoshopped, kinda gave me the idea as well.

The truck and trailer are totally AWESOME Darren!

As for the hieroglyphic, it's not a photoshop. They, and other easter eggs were intentionally put there by Steven Spielberg and George lucas, as a nod to each others films.

Thank you Marshall. I was actually thinking about doing some hieroglyphics like that on it somewhere maybe in the cab would be cool.

was not liking the purple on this piece. I like the gold much better will probably do a purple for the eye...

Darren,

          I would go with the gold, and purple would work well for the eye, but I think more of usinga bright red or orange.

But it is all looking good .

 

  Be Well

still trying the hand drawn gold on black, not liking the uneven lines, looks ok from a far. Close up not going to work. I am hung up now on the truck paint and graphics.

Might be easier to draw on semi gloss black Darren...
