Great work, David! I just bought a German radio from Toychest and Collectables. It is also unpainted and I am not sure of exactly how I should go about painting and detailing it. If anyone has a particular method of painting and detailing it, I am all ears! Thanks in advance!

Well the Interior is now completely painted and weathered. All that's left to do is the radio and antenna. The exterior is also painted. Just have a few more things to do before I can start the weathering process. Here's a few pics of the current progress.

This evening I got the rest of the Hull detailed and the first step of the weathering done. Basically now all that's left to do is some gas can straps, tail lights and the radio. As she is more or less the battery command and F D C track I named her after my mom. Here's a few more pics.

Dave, I love all of the details that you have added to this vehicle. The Paint job brings it all together with the markings and the markings. An all around great build.

She's looking mighty fine. Great work on bringing an older vehicle to life with fantastic details.
