Well, finished the first one.
Probably will add a figure later on, when I find one in a pose I like.





More photos in my gallery, under RRB.....

Great job Dave. Your weathering looks great (although your photos are a little "fuzzy") and is realistic. It's always the small things that really "add" to the model , like the way the drums are
randomly jammed in place and the little crease in the driver's seat, is this your doing or did it come that way? Also the different tires on the trailer, realistic stuff.
Your figure will finish this off nicely

Very nice Dave.I really like this one. the finish is first class. Just enough dust and dirt to show that it is used but not abused. The load looks very proper and balanced. Did you scratch the boxes in the rear? Bravo. You mentioned that number one is done. So,,,,,, what is number two?
