The decal came with the kit, which alos includes colored decals for the indentation on wheel caps, front grill and like.

And you rain on my parade by adding up pictures of your awesomely put together work in progress scale model.

Yeah was on the look out for this truck as I have seen an original Dodge Power Wagon and it is one intimidating vehicle.

Thanks bro, the very reason I bought it. The 1:1 is a beast. Someday maybe I get to restore one.

Manish, you approach towards building this kit is very systematic and being systematic means half the battle won.

Really, very detailed work of the highest order. Do post as many images as you can of the truck.

One of my first Auto Art 1:18 scale models, the Range Rover. This is one of the few Auto Art SUVs I have come across having working suspension.

Here are some more images of my Range Rover Auto Art model in 1:18 scale. I got this model when I visited the 2006 Auto Expo in Delhi.
I have been a great fan of this marque and wish to collect all models of Land and Range Rovers that were produced. Fortunately, I get to see all the latest variants / versions at my company quite often.
If any one knows a source from where I can obtain a LWB Land Rover Defender (any year model) in 1:18 scale, I will be most obliged. I already have the 1:24 scale SWB model by Welly which is very good.

That Range Rover is looking mean and massive. Nice addition to your collection!

This seems to be the one from the movie "XXX" which Vin Diesel throws off the bridge in the opening sequence.

Wow! I like the second & forth snaps.
Little difficult to recognize that it is a scale model if only those two snaps were posted.
