Kit made by

I finished the late model of SUNNY TRUCK with rat paint specification.
In addition to the paint, I also added detail improvements to each part.

The SR400 on the back of the truck is a repainted and slightly modified version of an Etoids Shokugan.

  1. There are some models that are on another level that far exceeds the norm. Words like "Best in Show" and
    "Gold" come to mind. Or "Model of the month".

    Dagored, your build and it's attention to detail with the rusting, the fading of paint, the chipping of paint and the added touch of the license plate ( a little humor) is something you'd see being used for a movie, printed in hard copy or in a book. Nothing short of professional.

    Two thumbs up.

  2. Wow, this is fantastic, Dagored @dagored
    The way you made this Nissan look old is impressive.
    Also the cargo it is carrying looks great.

  3. You can certainly tell where this vehicle owner invests his time and money! 🙂

    "messing up" a model is much harder than making it all neat and pretty. Great work.

  4. Truly professional work, Dagored!

  5. Awesome work. You could sell the car and its motorbike as real ones!

  6. If I didn't know any better, I'd say this was a photograph of a real beater truck. An emphatic like.

  7. Best rust on a vehicle, ever. Really good paint job, congratulations.

  8. Ain't seen rust like that since my Dad's Datsun 510! Great rust job, thought it was a real beater. Like the bike too.

  9. Haven’t seen rust like that since my 1980s Lancia, terrific work.

  10. Or my 1974 Plymouth Duster. Masterful work here!

  11. I had to rub my eyes to make sure it was not the real thing Dagored !
    Great work.
    I have a SR 500 that looks just like that ! A real one, and its for sale !

  12. That weathering is amazing!
