Don't fish but have outrun a Wildlife Fish and Game officer.  Built last summer when the Auquarod Combo came out, decided to do something different as where I usually post In the car section.

Van was easy and straight forward. Stance is a tad high. To bad there wasn't a molded open hood for the body.

The boat was another task at hand. Slight warped top made applying to the hull such a enjoyable experience and forget trying to glue the header on after the motor is installed ( they weren't).

Used a Rust-oleum Dark Steel Metallic on the van  which in good sunlight sparkles.  The speed boat was a base gold with Spaz Stix Candy Gold #15209 covering which imo gave it a fiberglass translucent  metal flake  appearance.

Great looking combo. The van hood issue isn't a big deal since you wouldn't be able to see much of the engine anyway. Having owned a short wheelbase G20 van years ago this is the way they sat with the heavier duty suspension. Like the way the boat turned out. I wish we had more boat kits like this to tow behind our truck builds.
