Looking awesome. the only problem is, I want to build something crazy and awesome now. scratch

If your wondering what you could use to make the air scoop, false finger nails look like they would be almost the same shape Wink

cheers  Now ya tell me, i usually throw them in the bin once i'm done with them.......  tease    
Morrie, go for it, i am lovin' this build, i am going to do more, this is "fun modeling" .
Thanks for following guys.. Smile

Well, a lazy 6 pack last night, i sorted the scoop, starting with the S'cool bus scoop.. and added a few bits of plastic to it..






A bit of putty and some primer, and it should look like it should..

pinstripe flames on it though.

Cheers buddy, but i spent an hour trying to mask up the flame pinstripe,. I did 1 side about 15 times, and it still did not work out,
so it's hand painting i think mate.. BUT, i will get it done.... Smile

Dale mate ... you've done real well with that brush work!... even now at a ripe ol' age of 60 my old "Signwriters hands" are getting a little shaky.
I so wish I could turn back in time and apply my brush skills to so many projects.
Anyway my friend it's looking real good so far.

Cheers
