Weathered a Larry Wood creation and one-time hypemobile

I started with a "Nestle Crunch Bar" liveried Pop Culture release.

I proceeded to spray it in a deliberately uneven coat of PlastiKote Leather Brown, weather it all up, trim out the interior similarly to my "Black Tie Special" Blastolene tribute, and reverse the rubber. I also made the 5th wheel functional for a Hollywood Eagles, Inc. (Etsy seller), Ertl, Maisto or NewRay 5th wheel or gooseneck.

The hood/bonnet was trimmed out in "aluminum" tone Tamiya Color, and the body was randomly marked with Newell/Elmer's Painters markers in orange, red & brown, and coated over with dollar store makeup intended for darker/ethnic skin tones, which makes great budget weathering powder.

Overall I created a nice tribute to the Duel movie truck, as well as an original embetterment of Larry Wood's genius with a generic 40s era big rig, with shades of Peterbilt, IHC, and Diamond T in its design.
