As requested by I have placed this photo here too.
I started with an Undec Atlas shell. Added all the appropriate details including brake chain and housing, speed recorders, horn, class lights, windshield wippers, lift rings, door handels, handbrake. I modified the fuel tank by using a peice of .010 sheet styrene and wrapping it around the existing tanks. It is painted with polly scale Bruinswick green with floquil armour yellow. Microscale decals cut to fit. The weathering is all done with an airbrush using pollyscale mud, dirt and oily black. to answer Abcragheads question all the pics I have of the 424 don't have becons until after 1969.

Greg that's a fantastic model, excellent work. I was wondering what you had used for weathering, nicely done, the effect is very convincing.

Cheers Willis
