Somewhat astounding. Thanks for posting! -- Russ


John, it's all over phantastic done! I really like the flattened tires.

I'll make it. If I have to fly the five feet like a birdie.

Thankyou for your comments.

Hi Ray, the front and rear windows are kit items, the broken side window is clear plastic from some product package. Some of the chrome items came already chromed in the kit (such as the light housings), others were painted Mr Color Silver and rubbed with Uschi van der Rosterns chrome polishing powder. If too bright, the chrome was dulled down a light spray of dullcote, and here and there some patina was added by sponging a little grey acrylic paint.

The images were a bit tight as I cropped them down to upload, so here are some images linked on photobucket. Cheers
