Beautiful car! I am fascinated by those air hose brackets. I have the Oriental brass version and I would like to upgrade it with your technique. Thank you for sharing that with us.

Thanks! The door locks were the ones molded on by F&C ;)  I'll have to credit them for the interior detail as well. The weathering though does make that "pop" and that was done with chalks (Doc O'Brien's Weathering Powders specifically) as was the exterior weathering. Truck springs were highlighted with a dry brushing of raw sienna followed by a wash of burnt umber (both Model Master acrylics)

Very nice build, Bruce!
I love the interior side detail. What did you use for the door locks, and how did you weather the truck springs?
