For 2013, our club challenge build was to build a large scale/large model/biggest box model and finish by Dec 31, 2013.  I
purchased this model a few years back and it made the perfect choice for this build.  The kit comes with gold pinstripe decals,
which were designed for the silver/metallic gray paint scheme.  The stripes on the silver/orange colour scheme are a deep
red/orange colour.  The gold decals almost disappear in this paint and I may remove them later.

The WIP was posted on the Scale Auto Magazine website at
