Continuing on:













Still working on the body rust & had to take off the rear bumper to do some rust under it that I had forgotten to do earlier.

Before anyone gets too upset by all the rust, I did base it on a number of photo's of RW "working" T3 Transporter tray-top utes; although I will admit that there's more on this than any one of the RW examples.

Still, it is a Zombie Apocalypse vehicle; it's not like it gets stored in a garage overnight & washed & polished every other weekend. ;)

Cheers!  :icon_beer:

After years of kicking around wrecking yards, must say weathering is realistic.  :smiley:
Equipment and figures seem real too.  :smiley:

@Guy/Old Wombat - Great work so far both inside and out and that includes your figures too.  :smiley:
