Bathtub Buggy

Built by: Mike McMahon in Palatine, Illinois

This was a fun kit to build. I painted the sink, tub and tile flooring ivory instead of white to tone it down a bit. The gold details were all hand brushed. I also flocked the transmission tunnel to give it that carpeted look and detailed the tire lettering.

The headlamp lenses were missing so I fabricated some from some clear plastic stock and tinted them yellow to match the windshield. The original decals were so old that they fell apart while soaking in the water. I can't wait until Slippery Arts comes out with a set of decals so I can put the finishing touches on this kit.
