Bringing home the next project

The 1956 Flashsider I entered in the "Battle of the Kustomizers" comp at Chillies Diecast Corner got 2nd to a previous winner, which earned me an entry into the "2009 Battle Royal".
This is a competition where where the 21 qualifiers have 3 months to build anything they want, ie. it's a no theme wild comp.
The timing of the comp was very bad for me, I was away on holidayz for 4 weeks, and then had to pack up everything as we moved house a couple of weeks after returning from our trip,
and this resulted in me not finding any time to start my build until 1 week before the deadline, so I had to do something that was achivable in that timeframe.
I have always loved how Hot Rodders take old wrecks and transform them into automotive art, and decided that this would be the theme for my entry:
a Hot Rodder having finished his kustom Dairy Delivery bringing home the next old rustbucket to be rescued.
There ended up being 10 entries, and I got equal 5th, I think that's pretty good for what is not much more than a couple of Milds in an Open Wild comp​
The build consists of :
A Dairy Delivery wearing True Fire paint, aluminium tape for the lights and grill and wheels from a Maisto Porsche Cayenne
A Dairy Delivery with some simble bumpers and raised wheel axles, paint weathered with chipping, washes and dry brushing and wheels from a Matchbox Rubbish King
A trailer scratchbuilt from the back of a CD case and paperclips​

I always wondered what happened in the land of Oz. Obviously some frikin' hot customization of DDs. Great paint, part selection, and imagination.

Both look great! I'm getting into the weathered look but still learning. I like what you have done with it. The true flames is an awesome job! :thumbsup:
