Too dam pretty, makes it easy to take photo’s, pat my self on the back, post useless threads on unfinished projects, and anything else I can think of to put off painting the details on the body.

Suppose to look like a Lost Five-0 can, it’s the white brick patter outlines and the reverse stencils that I’m putting off.

Click on Tagu 1/24 in the sidebar, that will get you the parts, as for the anodizing that’s a little trickier since you have to DIY

http://www.focuser.com/atm/anodize/anodize.html

will get you started with the anodizing but here’s friendly little warning; the equipment and hundred little whatnots like acid, buckets, tongs, gloves, power supply, stainless steal screws, aluminum sheets, and such end up costing much more then the relatively inexpensive starter kits and guide books, not to mention the space requirements. When I started I thought “hey I have most of it, a charger just like in the photo that I can use as a power supply, no-problem-o, what could it cost me? $150 for the kit and book, maybe another $150 for parts I might not have great.” Wrong over a grand and still climbing, it adds up fast. Worth it in the end but ouch.
