    This one took me almost 2 months due to the multiple layers of paint. The pictures really don't show the depth and richness of the Urethane paint. The gold on the hood is sprayed metallic flake from House of Kolors, and the red and blue are urethane kandy top coats from House of Kolors.... they were horrible smelling for hours after spraying them!

    He has the single tires on the front, double rear tires, chrome rims, etc.

    *EDIT*.... stupid me! BIG thanks for formula93 for printing the flames I created on vinyl for me!! You are the man!

    Let me know your thoughts:

    that's right. It is very hard to capture colours as such. I bet it looks so much better in person. Nice one there!!!

    Thanks! The flames are actually mine.... I took as many images as I could and created my own in photoshop. TFW member formula93 was able to print them out on silver backed vinyl for me. They are pretty damn accurate, but not 100%.

    Nah, I don't like how they sit either, but short of making them removable there is not much we can do.

    Yep... I was lucky enough to come across a few Kenworth models that were a near perfect match. Some minor modding was needed to make the rims and tires fit. The wheels are fixed though..... so no rolling out for this guy.
