It is a contest entry, give me at least a week with it! Quite a few bad seams, and the exhaust pipes will have to go. Going to scratch build those.

The tire treads are horrible

A lot of parts will have to be chromed

And I am making custom decals for her.

No Care bears...... Sorry to dissapoint, but I can put one in the video if you like.

Not this year. Well you all still don't know what my other entry is yet, so I could still sneak in a bear, or a dragon. I do have a model of castle neuschwanstein, and a dragon would look good there......

Yep, it wouldn't be a kit for me without troubles....

The trailer has one nasty mold mark. I thought I got rid of it but when it hit primer, just came right through.... Photos later in the week.

Thanks Lukaz. I do have plans for it, but nothing like last year.

Sounds like you have your work cut out for you, Grendels! Good luck!

A thought: If you end up sanding off the tread on the tires while fixing the seam, maybe you could re-tread the tires? Flood the sanded tread with extra-thin or lacquer thinners, then run it over the engraved grip of a tool with a metal handle? Although the tread would end up coming out inside-out, I guess. Just a thought....

The thought has crossed my mind..... And I do have one left over care bear from last year. But he is larger than the whole model. This thing is tiny. The trailer is only 3 inches long.....

Thanks! I only hope I can get her to look like the picture in my head. So far so good!

That is actually pretty close to what I have planned. I did a test tonight with scrap styrene and it looked good. I just have to find the right thing for the "impression"

Just a teaser until later this week for the video update:
