    This build is insane my friend! It is hard to understand how much work it takes and how non-forgiving material metal is before one really trues it out. Dont give up yet, just throw sone paint on it and we can call it a "project" or "barn find"! Missing details we add later.

    Great build from one of Finlands best scale builder already!

    Body details added. Side steps, air tank, side mirrors, hood emblem, hood secures. Small things but lots off hours spent on garage

    End of the Metal Kraz build coming close My build deadlines are slipping, but it's still progressing.

    I Decide to go lighter olive green on body paint, that details pop up more. Real rust weathering there included. But more finishing weathering still have to do. Now there are little bit too much rust.

    Now i'm working with wire management and electrics. Also fine finishing every where.

    You have to be ready a bit earlier than that because I want to see this masterpiece live at the hobby fair once this virus goes away!

    Amazing work once again.
    I have no idea what I'm doing. But trust me, I'm an engineer!
