    Ausien asked me to paint and decal a Gauge car for him.
    So here it is.
    The very first international Gauge car.
    I still have to decal the other side, and some minor detail work.

    Thanks Guys.
    Ralph...Its a model of an Austrailian prototype. They call it a "louvered van" Steve sent it to me to have done.

    Cavlrz....Two coats of primer, two coats of Testors "Ford Racing Blue"(out of production)
    The Gauge decal was done on my computer using the Vita-Cal system. The GLV reporting marks were sent by Steve with the car. Everything else is Micro-Scale letters and numbers using "dice and splice" method.

    The 2044 is Steve's Gauge id number, the eightyeight is...Well....

    Thanks everyone.
    Thanks Steve for allowing me to show my talents(What little they are) to our friends down under.
    I made a mistake when I said it was the first "International Gauge car". Technically, Val has the frist one that I did. Sorry........
