Yes, that is the key; "lean". As in, try my best to keep the conversion/scratch-build lean and well balanced. It has been quit a job to keep that course in line, but I know it will pay off in the long run.

This aint no 'speed build', grab the p/e and resin accessories for some Sunday afternoon 'down and dirty' kit-bash model build...NO SIR! That's NOT the way I ROLL.

Thank you panzer and yes, "gangsta" all the way.

Take care and Merry Christmas.

AWD

wooden truck bed lining

Trying out the resin wood grain decal on styrene strip for truck bed lining.
This is my first time using this method and let's see how this goes.
The alternative is to used wood grain scribed in the styrene or use bass wood.
Much hope here and always trying new stuff out.

thank you.

not too bad

The resin decal wood grain renders well.
I am happy with application and need to develop it more.
