    Do they do AAA calls?
    I think there's a Model A or T that needs it... just over by that cement pond.

    Looks great, but yeah, it could use some oil stains and grime!

    The truck looks great Paul but like others have said, it needs weathering, particularly the rear orange part. Orange and red plastic just always looks like plastic.

    forget about the truck (which looks great) I want to see more of the building in the background! What did you paint it with?

    Get some water based acrylic paint in the color you want from a craft store. You can thin it for airbrushing with either distilled water or denatured alcohol. The paint will be flat, but you can shoot gloss coat on top if you want glossy paint. Here in So Cal tow trucks are the cleanest vehicles on the road with the possible exception of firetrucks. They also have the wildest paint jobs imagineable.
