Photoshop. Wink I'll be doing the same (when I get the time), along with changing the color scheme and license plates. I've had the red one sitting on my TV for the past year... but now that I have the real thing sitting in my garage/driveway, it's time to make a model to match! Very Happy

Here it is (along with the red one I printed last year)... spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on it (straightened lines, changed some things, etc.). Next go-around (i.e. next year), I'll have to add the awning and curtains. Laughing

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics (and it printed a little darker than what my computer screen showed Mad ). Click the thumbnail below to see the much clearer print-ready version. I can modify the color, wheels, plates, and such; if anyone has requests, let me know. Wink

Very nice work Kamz!

Can you do one in Pastel White with silver Mercedes Steelies? Or even black wheels?

That would be great! Wink

Thanks, Jake

Hey Kamzcab - nice work! Would you consider making one in white with some Rhein wheels? I bet a bunch of us have that combo!
Thanks!
Steve

Nice going Kamz! You somehow managed to put Dixie's old 15" MB alloys on her instead of the silver-painted steelies she's wearing in my avatar pic.

Looks the the spare is the right wheel though...

Thanks, Jake

Can you do one in a combo of rust and primer grey, and then replace the wheels with jackstands?*












*I kid--you do beautiful work

Can you do the tan interior too? Wink

Seriously, thanks a lot!
